If you are new here today, welcome to my little corner of the world wide web!  I know I have already talked just a wee bit about these this summer but today is a special day in blogland. It is MODA BELLA SOLIDS DAY!

Our BELLA SOLID colors include the following: ivory, butterscotch, cantaloupe, coral, persimmon…
