Friday Fashion: I'm Covered in Bees!

I loved bees since way before I started Honeybee Alley.  That's why I chose the name.  Lately I've been especially drawn to clothing with bee designs on them.

I fell in love with this top at the University District Street Fair but I didn't have money for it then.  I bought it two months ago and I am so glad that I did!  I've been wearing it at least once a week since it arrived.  It's so soft and wonderful and from a fellow Etsy seller (and did I mention that it's super soft?!).  She makes all kinds of great clothing and pillows and bags.

And then I just had to get these socks from Amazon, because I loved them and there were only four pairs left, and the bee's knees puns basically write themselves.  They're too warm to wear yet but I will be getting a lot of wear out of them in the fall, and winter, and spring.

Because I love bees so much I've been donating 10% of my Etsy profits to Save the Honeybee Foundation this year.  I've also been including a bee-shaped piece of seed paper in every order.

Do you want to know a secret?  I love honeybees so much but I just think bumblebees are way cuter.  They're all fuzzy and clumsy and adorable.  When I was growing up and playing outside I would name all of the bumblebees Mr. Bumbles and watch them bumbling around in the yard.  But don't tell the honeybees!
