french dressing
























although i have closed my shop, i love looking at pictures from last year. I loved the holiday time at the shop, staying open late, the glistening effects from the chandeliers and window displays and the packaging- oh how i loved boxing things up in all sorts of special ways..... I have recreated my shop at my studio and still carry a lot of what you see but today i miss my little shop on broadway ...

i can tell, yours was a shop i would have spent hours in. very pretty things.

and that had to be the best name for a little boutique that i've ever heard. why did you have to close it? that is a shame.

thanks for letting us "shop" today.
