We paired a high quality stopper with beautiful velvet millinery grapes and foliage, added a dainty tag, and voila!

I am smitten with this "glitz and glam ruffle coat" It would work perfectly as a nice outfit coat and at less than $50 it's a steal!

I am so excited because I just pre-ordered some of these penguin classic hardcover books. This 10 piece books series features some of my favorite titles with new pretty hard covers designed by coralie bickford-smith. I have been looking for some old beautiful books to display and while not old, these totally fit the bill. Each book has a beautiful matte foil design and will look so pretty on my book shelf, dresser or wherever I decide to put them! Click here if you want to be lucky like me!

We just added this new seating card to the shop. I love the colors......probably in part because they were my wedding colors! The deep purple velvet flower picks up on the specks of purple in the gold key and looks really lovely to me :-) (And check out my awesome chair it is photographed on. I got it from a local antique shop. I bargained and only paid 30.00! And the seat is not woven wicker, it is leather. SweeeT!

So much has happened for us in this first year. We have 77 sales and tons of amazing feedback. I have loved working with our etsy clients and find it so rewarding to be a part of their wedding in my own little way. It hasn't been easy as my mom and I have lived in different states for the last 8 months! We have spent countless hours on the phone going over ideas, emailing pics back and forth and mailing supplies to one another! We have made it work, and hope to have continuing success in this next year :-) Thank you etsy for existing and being so supportive to independent designers!!!
We are going to be posting new items this week and next so make sure to check the shop!

Ever since I moved to Fort Smith I have had serious Anthroplogie withdrawal. In Houston we had not 1, but 2 stores! I loved shopping the sale room for steals (you definitely don't get the same deals online).
I picked these pretty items in shades of smokey purple and grey because they all would match my bedroom and are perfect for fall. Can't wait till Thanksgiving when I can see you again!
