Spring is near

I've totally been in the mood for spring - the shop is beginning to look as though spring is already here!  I have tons of new merchandise out and tons coming in each day!

I love all of the faux foliage that I have this year!  They look so real.



I always order sooo many nests - but I just can't stop.
We have over ten different types of nests around the shop!


Isn't this vintage cage so cute!?!


This lavender looks so pretty with the gray items around the shop!


More nests!


I have several vintage birdcages - isn't this three story cage amazing.
**cage sold**


These are great to fill jars, scatter on a table or use in your spring projects!


More nests!


Have a great week!

Happy Birthday Renee

I was thrilled when Renee's sister, Wendy, asked me to help surprise her sister for her 50th birthday.  It was definitely a day full of surprises...

Renee thought she was going to an amazing estate sale with her neighbor Deb (they knew if they didn't have a really good cover she wasn't getting out of bed)! Once she got to Deb's -----Surprise, four friend's and a cardboard cutout were waiting to take her on a road trip to Morris!!  Wendy didn't want Renee to know that she would be joining them once they got to Morris, so she had a lifesize cardboard cutout of herself made to really throw Renee off!
Once the group made it all the way from St. Louis Renee was soooo surprised to see Wendy...
I love this picture - can you tell how shocked Renee is!?!

Here's everyone (including the cardboard Wendy)!
They started the day off at my shop with cake pops and gelato champagne!

After shopping for a bit they headed over to Letty Mae's Tea Room
for a surprise lunch!   

As a thank you, for traveling all the way to Morris to visit, I made each guest a little candle.


How adorable is this picture of Renee as a child!!!

I filled this vintage teapot with spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and dried moss!


After an incredible lunch (as always) we had
the best cake ever!!!
Chocolate layer cake with Marshmallow fondant ruffles!
Letty Mae's did an incredible job!


The surprises kept coming...
Elizabeth from, http://elizabethhousestlouis.blogspot.com/, made the most amazing cuff corsage for Renee - it is absolutely gorgeous! 
I was so happy to be a part of Renee's special day and to have met such sweet friends!
I am looking forward to their next road trip!!
Happy 50th Birthday Renee!

Everything is coming up roses

The shop is beginning to burst with all of the new merchandise we've been adding!  Shipments have been coming in daily and we've been working on some great handcrafted items!
We found these really unique heart chairs at an auction(not in this condition of course)!
Wouldn't they be perfect for a bride and groom!?!
 


New handmade ruffle and rose pillows!


These rose candles just arrived - they make our entire shop smell like we are in a garden of roses!


Cute new clothing - I love the flowers on this dress!


One of my favorite new frames!


Paper roses


Flower pillows in a beautiful grey!
I absolutely love this lamp!!  I like the look of the distressed metal with the crystals.
We also have this in cream.


Have a great week! XO Traci
