Jolie à Paris

A couple of months ago, my friend Cassandra and I started an art group "Pretty and Vintage Things" on Saturday night we hosted a party at my home for the group. We named the party "Jolie à Paris", which means "pretty in Paris". We had such fun eating wonderful food, sipping punch and champagne and crafting and laughing together. Here are some pictures from the party that I wanted to share...
Cassandra made these amazing cupcakes and macaroons! She handmade the roses with gumpaste! They looked and tasted out of this world!

My New Vintage Hats

I visited the most charming little shop last week, "Winter's Past". It is in McIntosh, Florida (where my grandmother and mother were born and raised) "Winter's Past" is like stepping back in time into a vintage dressing room. The walls are covered in vintage hats, there are racks of vintage clothing and cases of dazzling vintage jewelry. I was like a kid in a candy shop. While I was visiting I picked up these two vintage hats. I plan on using their flowers for future art projects. If you are ever in the Gainesville or Ocala area you must visit this treasure trove! xoxo, molly

Coffee Filter Wreath

I made this wreath a year and a half ago and have always wanted to embellish it. This afternoon I gathered some flowers, leaves, lace, seam binding, and a little gold bird and put this together...

I hope you all are having a lovely week. Love, Molly
