The summer agenda for many of the families I know includes miniature golf, boating, picnics, barbecues, and every type of fair and festival you can imagine. This summer as a way to get to know my customers and friends better I encourage you to send pictures of your young ladies in the outfits you have purchased from me. Whether scooping up homemade ice cream, learning to ride a bike, enjoying your Live Butterfly Garden, jumping rope, or bowling I love to see my garments out there in the "real world."
Creating each piece of apparel brings me joy. Here are a couple of my favorites.
This past weekend while not meeting with clients in the showroom we took some time to enjoy our garden. Caring for the yard and greenhouse is a joy. Gardening is so much like sewing, one is producing a beautiful piece of art with at times dramatic and bold colors.
We have photographer Robert Diamante to thank for the beautiful pictures on our website. Here are a couple of Robert's images we thought would be nice to share. A consummate professional and a really fun guy, Robert was a dream to work with. His artistic contribution is much appreciated.
Every day I observe a new change to my landscape. Little flowers budding out of the ground. Patches of purple, yellow and white dotting my lawn. This is the season that most inspires me. Warm days growing longer filled with gardening, outdoor music concerts, homemade ice cream, the banging of screen doors, and sewing.
Longer warmer days mean children spending more time in the sun, which means the need for a little shade. What may not be accomplished solely by a large tree or porch cover I hope to provide with my Sunshine Hat. Pretty, fun, machine washable, and when combined with the appropriate sunscreen (by parents discretion) perfect for a day at the beach or in the garden.
