Hello! I hope your weekend was lovely. First up, I had several requests for an extension on the date to purchase the Spring Beauties kit, and you know I wasn't really thinking that through very well when I listed the date. First, I totally forgot last week was tax week, and I only offered it up for a few days. Not the smartest decisions on my part all the way around, but most importantly, I want everyone that wants a kit to be able to purchase one. So, I extended the sale date on the kit through Sunday, April 30th. If you're still wanting one, then you have time! Get them here. To see more photos and details, check out the previous post. For those that have already ordered, thank you. I will still begin shipping those kits later this week, no worries.
Next up, I thought I would share a tiny bit of progress on the studio. Are you getting tired of reading about this move, yet? Sheesh. It really is taking me forever, but between working, weekends at the lake, my daughter's senior prom, and getting her ready to graduate, I work on this in my spare time. Eventually it will get finished. My goal is to have it totally finished by Mother's day so that I can host a little luncheon for the gals in my family. Cross your fingers for me, ok? Mother's day is just 4 days before graduation.
So above, is a wonderful little 1930's armoire my husband bought me, and on it is a favorite old parasol and part of my millinery collection. Yes, I said part. Remember my lace dilemma? Millinery is almost as bad. And of course, you might notice there is also a (rather large) jar of vintage lace scraps on there as well. Really, is there any hope for me?
This frothy little thing is a vintage bed jacket. Why don't we use bed jackets anymore? I am thinking my husband might prefer those to my standard tshirts and pajama bottoms. Ha.
And then there is this lovely. It occurred to me that I had not properly introduced you to her yet. She was a Christmas present from my husband. (I knew about that one in advance...I found her in an antique shop outside of Atlanta and asked begged for her.) Happily, he is a good husband and obliged. She is my 3rd mannequin. I would show you all of her glory, but unfortunately she has a mess at her feet at the moment. She is different than most I have found, she's actually quite petite. I am thinking she was probably for a young adult? I don't really know how old she is either, the gal that worked in the shop said she thought her to be from the 1920's. She was already stenciled when we bought her as well. She is made of an odd paper like material. I don't know..I just know I loved her instantly and am thrilled to have her.
So, that's it for today, I'm a busy bee assembling journal kits. I'll be back soon.
