A little bit of music and fashion

This past Sunday we went to see Nicole's fashion show in the city, and to see the band called "Foxtail Brigade." The night was a mixed bag of stand up comedy, followed by the fashion show, then music.
It was all held at the Swedish American hall.
Here are the "Foxtail Brigade." Folksy, with great instrumentals. Take a listen over at their web page if you would like.
The next photos all speak for themselves. We have a little bit of behind the scenes and close ups of Nicole's collection. She was very busy with many details and construction of the collection this past month or so, and I think they turned out really pretty.

Lots of flowers, color and whimsy.

I have been very busy with preparing for Easter and getting the shop put together. Nicole has been a great help with helping me navigate Etsy, and hopefully it will be up and running very shortly. So many details and steps, and then when you throw in a holiday, yikes!! My head is spinning with everything. I really don't mean to tease with hopes of the shop opening soon, but it sure does require time and effort to do it the right way.

I hope everyone has a very happy and healthy Easter celebration.


  1. The fabrics, colors and textures are wonderful! Oh to be thirty pounds thinner and thirty years younger!!

    Hope you and the family have a lovely Easter.


  2. So pretty...looks like a fairy wedding! I can see how much work went into it...
    btw...more horrible snow arrived over night...snow day for the girls...crazy.

  3. I am so glad I am techie enough to be able enlarge the photos from this post. I was able to see up close all of Nicole's skills. I am still drooling over two of the pieces - the long dress with the to-die-for "lattice" sleeves, and the deliciouse-make-me-feel-young-again raspberry rain cape. I think she has a winner there. I could see just how much work went into every piece;I don't know how she finds the time to help you with your launch. Please let her know that some lady on a mountain in the middle of nowhere Tennessee was oohing and aahing over her work. Carolina

  4. Looks like a lot of fun!
    Great colors and prints.
    Hope all went well!


  5. Elizabeth, I love all those spring colors! So pretty!

    I have been curious if you are going to make an Easter centerpiece this year, I have been thinking about it all well. Do tell!

    Happy Easter friend,
