Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Marie Joins the Party...

On class day with Kristen for "Links of Love," we had a little Marie in the air at the shop. Just a few hints of it here, in the folds of an antique lace collar framing a diminutive French print in an old brass frame...

She tip-toed through the shop while we worked in her soft, kid-glove slippers with the Louis heels and rows of silk satin bows...

We caught her out of the corner of our eye making a "cameo" appearance, and saw her lustrous crown jewels clasped at a mannequin's throat...

We were graced with her presence in the pages of Maija's lovely journal, each page lovingly created by an individual artist...


My class photos, finally retrieved from the cantankerous Canon...here is our Kristen, wearing her adorable pinafore created for her by Ruth...

Here is Maija, who incidentally was wearing earrings created by Robin Dudley-Howes....

Here is Alicia, falling in love with needle felting!

A wonderful afternoon, spent learning and laughing...a prelude to many, many more!

Your corner of the world is always a little sweeter, a little more gentle and refined, and a whole lot more beautiful!
