Wow......I haven't blogged since November of last year...
I've been an avid Facebooker, but I have to admit I've missed it here.
So many things have happened that short time period.
I have been busy running the antique portion of my shoppe,
running my store at Canton's First Monday once a month,
creating when I can,
and loving on grand babies, dogs, and cats.
Because my new website is getting ready to go "live",
I felt compelled to document some of my activities and
creations as it is always fun to look at them all in one place.
This is an absolute favorite of mine,
and has been created from the most delicious antique and
vintage findings and embellishments.
I have only made three of this style bag
because of how time consuming they are to create...
still I adore them.
The jean jackets are most probably a "Texas thing"....
as we seem to love our denim.
Look for this jacket in the upcoming fall issue
of Somerset's Altered Couture.
I'm proud to have four items in the next issue.
Again, one of my very favorites and
a style that just can't be duplicated.
I can be copied, but never will one look
like the next because of materials used.
And of course, all the crochet garments....
I see them all around now, but still can't get my fill
of creating new and different ones.
Then there is our new baby....
Tucked inside the Shoppe utilizing 1,000 square feet is
my daughter's and mine new adventure/venture.
Yep, you guessed it.
It's a Princess party dress up tea room.
We book private birthday parties for
little girls as well as big girls,
and host bridal and baby showers as well.
This officially opened in May of this year
and is just taking off for us.
I don't know whether I'm more excited about the business
or being IN business with my beautiful daughter.
The stage and all of the construction was
completed by my sweet man.
He had a stroke two weeks before the first party,
but we are getting through it.
It isn't all roses,
It isn't all easy,
It isn't all fun,
But it all has promise....
I am truly blessed.....and remind myself daily.
If you think you can......YOU CAN.
Thanks for stopping by after all this time...
I've missed you.
