Bags and shoes!

If you look around the shop, you won't find coatdresses, fascinators, or anything with lace sleeves. But you can find some accessories that are worthy of a certain joyous ceremony that took place across the pond today. We have a deep appreciation for all things vintage, and have cobbled together a small collection of delicate beaded purses from the 1930s and shoes from the 1940s. Don't you think they're ready for an appearance with the Queen?

Hope you had a nice Easter break! We took advantage of a closed shop for the day! It was great watching the kiddos collect eggs and enjoying a leisurely brunch with friends in the fantastic weather. We rounded out the day with a fun Easter dinner with Joe's parents where the kids were so well behaved. Especially our son all decked out in his shirt & tie. He was so quiet. He really stuck to the "kids should be seen and not heard" standard. I was very impressed until I realized he could also not be seen.

It was a quick search because I found him in the upstairs hallway being as quiet as a mouse. Why was he not talking? Because his mouth was FULL of chocolate & candy. He was sitting in a rainbow colored-nest of his opened plastic eggs. All cracked open & empty. The goods were polished off in one sitting. Suffice to say the "kids should be seen and not heard" rule only lasted until the sugar hit his bloodstream.

[There are a few more woodland creatures for sale on our Etsy site.]
