If the shoe fits.

Head to toe, it's the accessories that make the girl right? Just ask Marie Antoinette. I'm considering her likeness for a Halloween costume. Speaking of Marie,  she is the inspiration for these dreamy shoes from Oxford Heaven at Etsy.
Fluttery Pink Butterflies. Ooh La La!

Love the Pearl and Pink Tassel Detail.

Velvet Roses. Pure Romance.
These shoes are ready for a high tea or a bridal shower perhaps. So frilly and full of romantic detail. Even if I'm not Marie Antoinette for Halloween I may order a pair to wear when I design my hair accessories. Who wouldn't be inspired while wearing these lovelies?

How she wore it. The Lisel Comb.

Here is one of my beautiful brides, Jill, wearing the Lisel comb.  Doesn't she look gorgeous? I am so honored that she chose one of my lovely creations.

Ready for Launch. Craft Show Table Top Display.

Find me here October 9th!
This weekend I'll be preparing my table top display for a Holiday Artisan Fair in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania on October 9th. I love staging and styling so I'm having a great time pulling it all together. I realized most of my display ideas would be equally well suited to decorative items for a vintage inspired event or wedding as well.

This is my favorite piece. I will use it to display hair combs. 
Perfect display for my vintage lovelies.
Love the floral detail.

I'm going to make a linen covered backing and pin the combs to it. Customers can angle the frame for a better look. This frame would be a beautiful way to display information or signage at a wedding as well. I found it at Mouse Trap Vintage at Etsy.

An antique box with wooden slanted inserts like the one below would be perfect for hair accessories as well. The combs could be placed in the rows for easy viewing. One could even use it for seating cards at a wedding. Can't you just see it sitting on an old farm table outside a rustic barn reception. Found at DefDif at Etsy.
Accordion slanted inserts.
Dovetail ends and library plate. Perfect!

 I've also had my eye on some antique sewing boxes like these from Time Passages at Etsy. Stacked or lined up they would add a nice touch for display:

I want to add a small detail to the table for a finishing touch like this recycled romance novel confetti.  Voila! Easy, beautiful, vintage display.

If you're in Pennsylvania near Chester Springs on October 9th stop by and see how it all turned out! Otherwise stay tuned for pics later on the blog.
