Here she is on the day she was born. She’s all snuggled up against me, sleeping sweetly.
Victoria. My heart sings for her every day.
If you have ever come into the store on a weekend, you are sure to have met my mother Barbara. The little bean was about 2 weeks old in this picture.
It seems like all I do is sleep, nurse and hold her in my arms. Grateful that it is summer.
Already doubled in length, this child just keeps getting longer instead of fatter. Here she is wearing vintage petit bateau that I wore in the 70’s.
We just got these in the store and they are very fun to play with. They can really jazz up a plain black dress, a little colourful T or mix them with other polka dots. They look especially great when worn with a bold pair of glasses. I tell you, these earrings are outfit makers!
They are made by Montreal paper artist Nicole Wisniewski.
And, best of all, they are light, comfortable and extremely affordable. ($20-$30/pair)
Buy some for yourself or gift them to your out of town friends. They are light as a feather and can easily be put into a little bubble wrap envelope to be mailed around the world.
I love flowers.
I know, to you this is obvious. I design flowery clothing. I use flower prints. I embellish and embroider with flowers.
These are my newest creation.
They are made from real roses.
Can you believe it? Bet you can’t.
The roses are dried in silica gel so that they keep their 3D form. Then they are lacquered with a resin finish so that they become hard and strong. They still look delicate and fragile and yet they are tough as nails. Hanging on a sterling silver chain and, voila! a beautiful piece of summer jewelry.
The rainbow selection…how will you choose which one is for you? So unique. So precious. Nature in all it’s glory.
I also made rosette earrings and rosebud cluster necklaces. Perfect for a summer wedding. I wore a pair of these earrings at my own wedding. Little purple ones to go with my ridiculously over the top purple wedding dress and pink veil.
The hair clips are very glam and would look great for PROM.
