NEW~ vintage lace trees, ribbons, flowers...time to CREATE!!
I changed out my store window yesterday- with some vintage home goods. I have been surrounded by garden items all week, working on the Monticello Garden show that continues on until May 24th. And I just wanted a little "home" feel to the window. So... the dress form is wearing an apron, some vintage kitchen items are in...and the antique lace trees are standing tall. Don't worry, the lace is still intact. I just found a huge box in storage of some very old lace, and wrapped it around some styrofoam trees. The lace is tacked on with vintage thumbtacks, not glued. I found playing with the lace, bagging up some old satin ribbons, and decorating the window with some creative finds would be a fun change. The satin flowers are jewels that I found antiquing, brought them in on Friday, and sold most of them already. They are made of satin cording, and just the neatest homemade flowers! so bright and cheery!
this week I am focusing on emptying out more boxes from storage, and also revamping my space at STARS ANTIQUE MALL!
Thanks for stopping by...hope everyone out there has a great week!
