Lace to Love

"I consider lace to be one of the 
prettiest imitations ever made of
the fantasy of nature..."
           ~Coco Chanel

    The snow is falling outside, my arms are full of lace, and my camera is dangling round my neck. Today is a stay-at-home day and I have been busy photographing and listing new things in the shop. January is a slow month - everyone is clearing out the Christmas and slowly Valentines decorations are creeping up here and there. I always start to get excited towards the end of the month longing to see what the advent of the Spring season will bring. Will florals be popular this year (I always hope so!), pastels, and fashion with a little flounce. Will the window displays be dripping with flowers and foliage to counterbalance the cold outside? Our cold can last till May so I always love to pretend a little. Whatever the trends I am looking forward to this new year! Have a look at the ETSY SHOP to see what's new and enjoy this little sneak preview!

Perfectly Pink January

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is 
the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, 
kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when
everything seems to be going wrong. I believe
that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe
that tomorrow is another day and I believe in
              -Audrey Hepburn

January can be a blue month. Christmas is over, all of the decorations have come down, and the new year is stretching ahead full of the unknown. I always feel a little let down in January because Christmas is such an exciting time and is over so quickly! It is easy to be blue. --Not this year though. This year on January 6th my little sister had her first baby girl and everything has been a wonderful jumble of new experiences and joy! This year January is a glowing pink! I hope that is a sign that 2014 will be full of surprises. Here are some new treasures in the etsy shop and some pink pictures to brighten your winter days...

Marie's Vanity

"Romance is the glamour which
turns the dust of everyday life into
a golden haze."
            ~Elinor Glyn

   Pinterest is addictive - we all know this - I have been having a great time lately perusing it for beautiful photos and creating new boards. I like to find inspiration for photoshoots and post ideas on pinterest! I love all of the Marie Antoinette inspired photos out there and the pictures taken in Versailles of her bedroom and the palace. Everything is so feminine and ornate! That was the inspiration for these pictures - a Marie Antoinette-esque dressing table scene. I hope you like them and are having a wonderful January! I have added new treasures to the Etsy Shop as well so be sure to have a look - the first batch of 2014!! (Bit late because I have been busy with my Sister and her new baby!!!) Here is a little sneak peek of what is new in the shop...
