Back in love

I bought new hangers for the shop.They are some kind of blond, unfinished wood and have black metal hooks, clips. I proceeded to re-hang every garment in the shop and in the process....fell in love with all of them again. I had been so close to them for the season that I forgot how special each piece was!! And they are SO ON SALE!! Such great pants, such a great layering knit, what a crisp shirt. Come see the hangers. Come see the sale.

Maine awoke to a fairyland of snow. With all of the hassles it brings....it still is quite a treat for the eye.

 Caps and scarves for neck or head.
RECHERCHE.   Designed in Japan, based in NY's garment district and bearing a French name. Worlds of style.

Study in contrast

It is a stunningly beautiful holiday Monday.

Bright sun, leaves turning their vivid hues...

'Taking a break from the color with these pieces in a black/grey/white theme.

I have made a series of garments from this wonderful fabric: jackets long and short, vests, dresses. It is earthy! I thought it was linen (my fabric source in NY is not too forthcoming with info), but a well-informed customer who knows her fibers said it was hemp! Fine with me.

Oh my oh my

Someone decided to put something through my front window.....again.  But, no time to deal with that. Off to NY to buy for Spring/Summer 2017. One intensive day of searching for great stuff.....then, played hooky with my daughter and went to the Met. One must have one's fun.
