Bring Back Bunheads

We're in the golden age for television.  Television shows have become almost more popular than movies.  TV shows allow the writers to work on character development and the viewer get to enjoy the series like a book - watch it all at once or keep going back to it at different times.  We get to continue on the writer's journey of the world they create. 

One of my favorite things about TV today is the viewer's have the ability to express their love for a series.  As you know Arrested Development was canceled too soon and Netflix has released a new season of the show.  Veronica Mars was sadly canceled about 10 years ago and now they're making a movie!  

Last week I heard Bunheads, one of my favorite shows on television, was canceled.  Amy Sherman-Palladino's writing is very unique.  I love her smart and politically savvy writing with its quick humorous banter.  If you're a fan I suggest you vote for the series, writer to ABC, and maybe even ask Netflix to bring the series back.  Don't give up hope!  Your opinion counts!

Statement Pins

For Fall 2013, it's all about rich colors, ornate artistic arrangements, and mixed textures. A statement pin is a great way to stay on-trend without breaking the bank.  Add the pin on a blazer, sweater, or on a purse to create a different look.

Davey O

My husband and I went to see Davey O live at Chunky Monkey in Cheshire, CT last night.  He did such an amazing job!  He's from Buffalo, NY and specializes in folk music.  He is AMAZING!

Time for Velvet!

Velvet is one of the most luxurious fabrics.  It's my go to fabric for autumn and winter.  People often associate velvet with evening parties, but velvet can be a fun contrast to casual wear as well.  I LOVE the look of denim jeans, t-shirt and a velvet scarf - so boho!

Bridesmaid Gift Idea

We recently designed mini fabric blossoms for a late summer / autumn wedding.  We made a large three flower hair clip for the bride and the bride wanted a coordinating design for the bridesmaids.   These simple little hair clips are such a nice touch as an accessory and a bridesmaid gift.  You can play around with a variety of hairstyles - updos, long, side style, etc.   Click here to learn more about them.
