Grand Opening of Vintage Bloom

This last Saturday September 6th was the grand opening of Vintage Bloom Art Studio.  It took me a little longer then I expected to get everything moved in, organized and looking just the way I wanted it to but I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.


 Two of my good friends from Seattle made it to the party
My sister in law, Molly Hurtt of "Sugar Pop Parties" did all the food.

 Everything looked and tasted so great.


I have the front of the space set up to sell all my lovely vintage flowers
and a few other things.

A friend made these aprons for the studio.

Some of my hand made jewelry was for sale too.

I wish I had more pictures to post but it was a busy day and I was lucky to get these. 
Thanks to everyone who made it and for supporting me in this new adventure!

MM Soldered and Embellished Crown

I made this crown for the Spellbinders Creating A Gilded Life Contest.  The crown is made from thin copper that I cut out using the petite monarch die cut from A Gilded Life collection.  I soldered all the parts together, added patina then embellished the crown with mother of pearl beads and vintage rhinestones.
