Labor of Love Weekend

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and for those of us in the US - a fabulous Labor Day weekend! I had a busy one helping my friend Judy with her son's stateside wedding reception. As I mentioned in my last post, her son was married a few weeks ago in France. She put together a lovely reception here in CT for those family and friends that were unable to make it to the French festivities. When I was finished with that, I got in some much needed R&R, pulled the summer flowers, and replaced with mums, and worked on a big (well big for me) shop update! Here are photos of the items I've added. All the jewelry pieces are made with vintage earrings and brooches.




I've also added a few Halloween boxes including this orange glitter version above...


...and one of my traditional little round ones.


I also played around with some artificial fall flowers, leaves, and vintage bits and bobs to come up with this fall bouquet.

How has everyone been? I feel like I've been a little lax in visiting and commenting the last few days, but I'll be catching up in the next day or so as soon as I get back to my office and wade through the work on my desk! Now that the semester has started, my life has gotten a lot busier in work! Big hugs to all!
