Want of the Week

My husband's family is getting ready for a wedding which is to take place in about three weeks. We've been so busy, but I must tell you I've having quite a lot of fun as well. I'll post more details, mood boards, and photos from the wedding in the upcoming weeks but I just couldn't wait to share this little find.

The girls in the family have been asked to wear brown and to accompany the outfit with gold vintage jewelry featuring fall colored jewels. And though sadly I ended up going a different direction, I wanted to show this fabulous dress I found at Sears. (Only $39.99!)

I then went searching on Etsy for a one-of-a-kind necklace to go with it. I am totally wishing the dress had worked out so I could have a reason to buy one of these two gorgeous pieces.

This is Vintage Amber Chandelier Necklace is made by Jules B Vintage, click here to visit the shop.

This is Queen Elizabeth Vintage Amber Topaz Brooch Necklage can be found in Janet Lily's Etsy shop.

See how perfect they go with the dress? *Sigh* These surely make my want of the week.

New Staff at Minelolly

Say hello to Evelynn, she's the newest member of the Minelolly family and will be arriving here in the office in about a week. Her modeling expertise will help the work go a lot quicker so Minelolly is VERY pleased that she has accepted the job.

Evelynn is joyful and rather witty. Her personal style is somewhat punkish and eclectic. But she slips easily into and out of different personas which I think makes her perfect for modeling. Her friends tease her about her collection of patterned stockings which Evelynn keeps stashed in TWO suitcases. (I secretly hope she'll let me borrow a pair from time to time.) And her favorite past-time includes visiting with Ma and Pa at Ma and Pop shops, making You Tube videos featuring the colors black and purple, and of course trying different hair styles. (Speaking of which, I need to find some wigs for our new girl...anybody know of a good resource?)

Creative Thinking

Recently a customer who had previously purchased a hairpiece, contacted Minelolly asking if FOUR more matching flowers could be made for her wedding cake. I LOVE the idea. What a fun way to tie things together. Here's the photo she sent, taken by a guest. Thanks Stefany!
