500 days of the best clothes EVER!

Love this movie (just released on DVD) and all the outfits Zooey D. wears. I want all of her clothes. Tulle just happens to be a great online source for inexpensive vintage inspired clothes. Check out their highwaist pants and pencil skirts and mod little dresses.

Happy Christmas, as Amanda would say...

This christmas my talented and knowing husband gave me his heart- a hand made heart! He even made the little yoyo flower himself- he's been watching me work too much! He also got me a great cd- Nellie McKay "Normal as blueberry pie" she sings great songs from the 50s that will inspire and make you feel like having a tom collins or whatever they drink on Mad men...

Finding neverland...

I sometimes put in a movie while I work on my creations and this week I re-watched "Finding neverland" I was so inspired by the costumes on this film and the general reverence for adornment that was so prevalent in the Victorian age. I decided to create a line that includes rich jewel tones and the lush fabrics of the age- silks, taffetas and satin decorated with delicate pearls and vintage buttons. Here is the first necklace of the collection- modern bib style with satin bows. It is available in the etsy store and I'll be busy making other creations with these lovely little flowers.

Hopi fair: Velvet and vine

Emily Blais and her Mom create these super adorable "gourds" and "acorns" I would love to line a long table with candles, colorful velvety "gourds" and toss in few "acorns" with some bud vases filled with fall flowers. Contact Emily at to order yours.

Hopi fair: Vintage at heart

Loved this set up, Nicole Newman and Dani Christakos from Vintage at heart create gorgeous ornaments and hanging art from old tin ceiling squares and chandelier crystals.

Hopi fair: Spirijewel adornments

Halleh Landon of Spirijewel adornments creates the prettiest necklaces with leather, chain, and handmade precious metal charms. She even has vintage charms from England!!

Wedding flowers!

Here are some pictures from a wedding we did a few weeks ago. I loved the look this bride was going for she was very earthy and wanted to incorporate unusual florals into her bouquet. We used poppy pods, amazing variegated white and green ranuculus, ruffled variegated green and white tulips, little gold-y green and silver balls, dusty miller foliage as well as white peonies and hydrangea, thanks to my amazing wholesaler Mayesh I get the best and most beautiful product and thanks to Kym from Ventola photography I have some amazing pictures of it!
