So I decided to feature some shops who have at least one item that has to do with honeybees. Why honeybees you ask? Well quite simply that is the meaning of my name Melissa. The name Melissa stretches back to Greek mythology where the nymph Melissa cared for the baby Zeus by feeding him honey. I find that rather funny as these days we know not to feed babies honey. It can cause botulism in infants under 1 years old. Anyway here some great finds!

Roby Baer works in pastels to create works of art that are so realistic they look like photographs. Based out of Redding CA, Roby is a self-taught artist!
