Summer Fashion As the Season Winds Down

While the warm weather will stick around for a few more months here in the Sunshine State, summer vacation is quickly coming to an end.  It’s both a curse and a blessing.  I will miss waking up AFTER the sun has come up, our weekday trips to theme parks and water parks and staying up past midnight without counting the number of hours until the alarm goes off. I dread packing lunches, morning traffic and afternoon pick-up line.

But, I am excited to get back to a routine at home and work. Hubby will appreciate the return of regular visits to the grocery store, as well as not having to dig through the laundry baskets for a pair of matching socks. I will be able to dedicate more time to blogging and you will get to see more of my handmade goodies.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some of what I’ve worn (#wiw) over the last few weeks…

The Vintage Dish Dessert Tower

A couple of years ago I planned a surprise birthday party for my mother-in-law.  The theme was Vintage Garden Tea Party. Planning this event got my “hands-on” creative juices flowing.  Up until then, I expressed most creativity through writing.

One of my favorite projects that I created for this party was a serving platter made from vintage plates and tea cups.


The original “Vintage Dish”

It was such a hit that I made some to sell at Aqua Seventy6’s very first trunk show.

Here are a few others:


These serving towers dress up any dessert table.  I’ve used mine at birthday parties, baby showers, holidays and even at an informal get together.

The only drawback is that they’re pretty heavy and don’t ship well.  However, I’d be happy to create one for anyone in the Richmond, VA area.  Email me at the address above for pricing information.
