Fall Flowers and Shop Update Pending

I love sunflowers. Our kids plant them every Spring and they look great every Fall.
I think this was our best specimen this year : )

It was back to work for me today taking pictures of lace hankies and pretty dresses. I think my camera skills for close-ups need some practise after the summer, lol. Maybe it is the rainy weather and grey lighting . . . or I really am out of practise! I will have to try again tomorrow.

This dress is just amazing and really should be shown in better light.
It is too small for my size 8 dress form . . . so my daughter may have to model it for me later today.

They certainly knew how to make a pretty party dress in the 1950s.

I have some silk hanky holders and wedding hankies ready to update the Bridal Section of my Etsy shop.

I like the net-lace hankies the best.

The Cosmos is enjoying the nice warm Fall weather. Ther isn't much colour across the fields yet. Maybe next week.

I am still looking into the idea of a brick and mortar shop but will likely set my sights on the Spring. It takes a while to save some money, build some partnerships and finish a Business Plan. I'll keep working on it though : )

Hi Karen...Love that dress...so pretty.
Great pic of the sunflower and cosmos..I'll miss the flowers when the snow finally arrives...hope it stays away for a little while yet!

Spring is good...it will give you a chance to get everything in order.

Have a great day!
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Karen! That sunflower looks HUGE! It's so cute!

That dress is dreamy looking! It looks so lovely and frothy!

I guess back in the day of hankies one would've had to have a hanky holder, huh!? I'll have to check that out once you get them listed.
