Fall reminds me of spring in the way that it always seems to usher in new ideas, exciting happenings, fresh thoughts and renewed spirits.
My dear friend Clarice is the foodie editor for a new upcoming magazine. The magazine is called "Gatherings." Up until now the magazine has only been available in digital format. I'm excited to announce the new magazine will be offered in a printed version starting September 1! The quarterly periodical will leave you drooling! The excitement continues as I'd like to announce that the magazine will also be available at the soap shop on water street! Get your copy here! You won't want to miss this magazine. You'll need to be first on the bandwagon, because I ordered a limited number and I'm keeping one for myself! Pop over to their face book page and give them a like. Please tell them Bittersweet sent you.
More shop talk...
The soap menu, aka chalk board wall above the table that houses the savon is about to get an update. The chalkboard wall has proved to be a merchandising bonus. If you have a shop and considering a chalkboard wall, I'd say do it. The new autumn soaps will be listed on the wall. Going to go light on the Christmas decor this season at the soap shop on water. I had some pondering thoughts of drawing a Christmas tree on the board.
Love, love, love the little vintage white daisy dress! Honestly, I can not believe it hasn't sold. It will be making its way down the runway during the fashion show on September 12. Sweet Jamie will be modeling the dress.
Back... The black and white Bittersweet aprons that my friend Maggie embroidered. Bittersweets old logo on them. The girl in the swing. Always loved the girl in the swing, still do.
Some new aprons made in pinks and grays. I'm on a pink & gray trend at the moment, at least when making aprons.
The hydrangea hats... I finally remembered my pattern! I made two other hats before getting it. The big wide hat loops, kind of my trademark hat making design. I wish that it could be shared, but honestly, no idea what the heck that stitch would be called. I refer to it as a Jill chain. I'm fond of the hats. Since they're thin they are the perfect little hat to throw on once the air gets crisp. I like them to fit tight. Yesterday while rummaging around the vintage boutique I found an embroidered doily. It was tiny, I'd say only a couple inches, and round. I became excited when I found it. It was the perfect addition to the Gatsby looking hat. It also gave me an idea. I'll try and get a picture for you so that you can see for yourself.
Fresh bundles of lavender our arriving at the shop today.
Lots of soap in need of wrapping.
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
