Busy, Busy, Busy!

As you have just seen, we've been pretty busy here at the studio.
Putting up new walls and re-arranging things to allow for a new
retail supply area outside of the studio space.
I've also been busy making hundreds of fabric & rag ribbon flowers
for both the June Bride wedding windows next month.

One here at the studio and the other is the Main Street Vintage window.
There will be gowns, veils, bouquets, hats, bibles, candles, crystals
and many more magical pieces so make sure and stop by in June!

Some flowers in the works.

Have a great day!
xoxo, Chris/Momma
