.............. vacation ...... :(

If you've been following this blog for a while, you probably are aware of my fear (anxiety) of flying.

And for some reason, I've agreed to go to the Virgin Islands with my boyfriend. 

Great, right!?

But the problem is getting there.

There's this to deal with:

And this to deal WITH it on the plane (s) :

YES -- PLANES! We go UP to Philly and THEN down to the islands. Oiy.

Anyways ... if I survive ... I'll be back around Wednesday and the shop will re-open then. :)

So, I bought this HUGE MONSTER of a piece of furniture yesterday at a tag sale.

They were calling it an "apothecary" chest .. but really I think it was card catalog for a library.

No matter -- it is now housing all my random crap from my studio! Yay! 

I had such a fun time organizing it yesterday and filling all the little drawers. Consequently, I have NO idea where anything is now. I just open about 10 drawers until I find what I'm looking for.

It's like a giant game of memory. 

Here's the rest! :) 

Bookshelf and my vintage slip collection.

Packing station and closet with supplies.

The desk and Caesar! (my little bird).

flower girls!

(Kate Moss' bevy of flower girls)

The whole reason I started making crowns was so that women could feel like little girls again. 

I mean, didn't we all make flower crowns out of daisies growing up? I thought I could capture some of that same youthful innocence and fairy-tale ...

BUT ... when you start thinking about crowns for YOUNG girls.

Is it the opposite? 

Don't little girls want to feel grown up?

I've pondered this for a while now ... trying to decide if I should really jump into the whole "flower girl" arena of crown-making.

It seems like a natural progression ... but I don't know.

Kids heads' are generally not much smaller than adult ones ... so most of what I sell would work for the younger folk.  

I need to do a survey with little girls --- see if they would rather wear a flower crown ... or maybe something like a miniature veil (like the bride!) 

It's hard to say what kids want ever I suppose ...
