Hope you are all doing well. The mornings are getting cooler here but the afternoons are still hot. Our wells and flowers are hoping for some rain soon.
Nicole and I are revamping MAISONSTGERMAIN.COM. We are changing hosts and will be adding a ton of things once we are done. The NEW Site will be up and running in a couple of weeks. Right now our old site is up but you can still order from it.
We are very exciting with the new host as it offers so much more and seems to be much quicker. There is nothing worse when you are trying to upload a photo than to have it take 15 minutes for each one. So it was time to move on. We had a photo shoot with 'Big Moma' (above) for the site. Isn't she pretty modeling one of our purses? She goes to all our shows with us.
I wanted to share a couple of ideas with you, that anyone can do . Maybe they will inspire you:) I bought this long piece of tin at Brimfield. It had hearts cut out of it. I hot glued a piece of lace behind it (because the fabric I really wanted wasn't long enough) and then nailed it to the front of a shelf!And now I have a one -of -a- kind vintage piece. Of course I did have to redecorate my wall again;)
I love these baskets but wanted to add a little girliness to them. I had some pretty millinery flowers and vintage lace. Just hot glued everything in place, added wide ribbon on top and really like the results.
This is just way to easy. I bought this plant trellis for $1.00,already painted white. I hot glued some vintage lace to it along with a millinery flower. Then I picked out 3 of my favorite vintage photos and clipped them on with old clothespins. Who said it had to be expensive to be pretty;)
This is an example of the pillows we will be putting on the site. Made of vintage linens. All sizes and all different. I love making them so there will be plenty:)
Hope you were a little inspired to try something new. I enjoyed creating and really appreciated my hot glue gun:)
'Till next time.......
