Dachshund Mommy: Okay y'all, here's the photo (and info) I gave you yesterday:

Enough of her babbling! On to the review. JeanaMICHELLE is, like I said, an Etsy shop that makes freaking adorable collars and collar/leash sets, as well as a few non-dog items like hairpins, clutches/purses, quilts and wedding accessories. Here's a bit about the shop:
I have been sewing and creating for as long as I can remember. I hold an art degree and practice as a quilt artist primarily. Making dog collars for my own dog and other items has been a fun respite to the intricate work I am used to. After the prodding from a dear friend to sell them at a local dog show, I realized that there was a market for fun decorative dog collars. Thus, JeanaMICHELLE was born.
Since then, I have expanded by offering coordinating leashes.
Our items are available in a variety of sizes and styles. Patterns are continually changing and we love to adapt with the seasons and holidays.
All items are locally made in Perham, Minnesota.
Custom orders and requests are always welcome.
Be sure to "heart" our shop and "like" us on Facebook for new product introductions and specials only offered to our Facebook friends. www.facebook.com/jeanamichelleshop
All their collars and leashes are made of 100% cotton, so if your pup has a nylon allergy they can still rock these collars. They are completely washable, too! Even the detachable bows are washable, if placed in a thick sock. If the collar looses some shape after lots of washing, just press with an iron.
Another nice thing is that leashes to be used on dogs under 12lbs will get an extra small clip! I've seen (and even had) a few leashes on us smaller ones that are about as big as we are.
The shop is also offering white and colored hardware for certain collar sizes.
I love how many gawjuss collars the shop offers! These are a few of my favorites, but there's many more to choose from.

The description of the collar:
Your dog can rock out with this pink and black leopard print collar. This Extra Small sized, 5/8" wide collar is designed for use on dogs or puppies with necks measuring 8-11" and is fully adjustable. Please contact me if you would prefer without bow and I will create a custom listing for you.
Unless noted, I use only comfort hugging curved side release buckles, cotton, heavy interfacing, triple-stitching for strength, and nickel plated D-rings.
As with any cotton fabric, it is normal for wear after frequent use and multiple washings. Please regularly inspect your collar for wear. Although these buckles are designed to withstand quite a bit of force, please use caution regarding your pet as JeanaMICHELLE is not responsible for any inquiry caused directly or indirectly by use of any of our collars.
Cute as can be!
Lots of choices
Strong and durable
Quick, easy release buckle
The tag that lists the collar size and shop name is on the inside, so it's not mucking up the outside as a distraction
Great customer service (they included a Milkbone for Phee! Because of my allergies, I couldn't have a taste)
Extra bands for the bow included
Very reasonable prices
Custom orders welcome
The collar is a tad stiff at first, but softens right up!
Leashes are only sold as sets, which is a little disappointing as I like to mix and match
I wish they made harnesses as well
Overall, I give JeanaMICHELLE 4 paws up and 4 out of 5 stars (1 star docked for not having separate leashes)!. Head on over there, and feel free to use the code "friends10"for 10% off your purchase. As always, make sure to tell em Nola sent ya!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
|Extra bands for the bow|
|LOVE the fact the tag is on the inside|
|It's the little personal touches that make a business|
|See? She can't post to save her life.|
|DM: I kid you not, I took 145 photos to get this half way decent one. When doing reviews for things of Nola's, I take 15-45 photos, max.|
|DM: I felt so bad seeing Nola staring, wondering why she wasn't wearing anything new!|
|That's more like it!|
|The collar is adorable with or without the bow!|
