Florida Fun in the Sun

My husband and I just got back from a little vacation to Southern Florida.  It was such a blast.  I can never get enough of beaches, palm trees, and sunsets.  My dream in college was to take off and open a smoothie stand next to the beach.  How cool would that be?  It felt great to escape the snow from up north and feel the warmth of the sun.  I got to do a little jogging, swimming, and lots of walking along the ocean.  We went to Miami, West Palm, and Fort Lauderdale.  I was really happy to come back home to my cat (I missed my little guy) and get working on new designs.

I wore some of my new designs on the trip.  Here is the new Pearl Halo Headband - perfect for bohemian brides. <3 br="">

Handmade Lingerie

We're preparing for the upcoming bridal events - Bridal Boutique Party and Something New Something Old Event at the Buffalo History Museum.  SO excited!  We're also working on some new designs and decided to experiment with lingerie.  Carol started to design a garter belt.  It's an ornately embellished garter belt that could be pleasing to enjoy as a boudoir ornament as well as worn as an accessory.  Made of pearls, hand dyed purple lace, and satin.
