With winter around the corner boots, sweaters, scarves, and dark colors are on everyone's mind. Well it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. Celebrities lately have been spotted in bright colors that have not left their wardrobe just because Spring is gone. A huge trend spotted on celebrities has been Butterflies. The celebrity pictured here is pop diva Katy Perry sporting a lovely Juicy Couture Butterfly dress. To Get in on this trend visit my shop www.hairsewvintage.etsy.com. I have several butterfly hair accessories available now.

Its been a few weeks since my last blog so I have a bit of catching up to do! Carlos and I decided to turn or guest bedroom into a studio for my hair accessory business. The room will also double as a movie theater space. I already picked out the paint color and curtains. The paint is a dark pink color with a purpulish tint to it. The curtains are a deep plum. I know it sounds risky but I got the color scheme idea from the IKEA web site. The furniture will all be dark chocolate brown almost black. I love modern furniture thats made to look aged. We also purchased a really amazing crystal chandelier from Lowes for the center of the room. I imagine the space to be really serene and peaceful. I hope to be very inspired in my new room.
I have also been very busy with my shop. I had a 2 hour photoshoot last weekend. I am still editing the pictures from that marathon...whew I have a lot of product. My goal was to have 100 things in the store for the holidays. I have 63 things at the moment. I did sell one 0f my newest combs Thursday night. I just shipped it off to Australia and my last was to New Zealand...I am worldwide people:O) How exciting! I also added some great crochet headbands.
Today is a road trip with the family. We are off to Leesburg to go shopping. They have a geat little store called Dockside Imports. They sell all kinds of home decor. I am looking for a cute vase to hold my flowers, that will match the studio. My mom is heading that way for a lady who makes bookcases out of old antique and vintage finds. She makes the doors out of old windows ect.
Sunday I have to finish painting the bottom trim of my studio, clean house, do laundry, and then maybe..just maybe I will have some time to list a few things or create a few things. Enjoy your weekend everyone. Tata for now Xo
