Simply...slight changes

Thank you ladies who attended the Grand Opening last Saturday! I understand it was an eventful day with the fabulous food, bounce house and fun!!

But, I (Simply Glowing Gifts) will no longer have my items at the Athens store (TuTu Darn Cute)..sorry, for the incovenience . I made some quick decisions and life happened during this time and I am unable to continue this venture at this time.

However, you can still shop my online boutique via Etsy.....or at The Antique Gallery of Mesquite. As of yesterday, I moved to a larger booth at this location. My booth is on the first isle on the backside endcap~and it looks fabulous!!! I have tons more items than my previous booth and was already getting compliments (and sales) as I was setting up...this was a good move!!

Thank you for you understanding!!

Vintage flapper hats

Well, while the girls are selling our goodies at the Cain Center today I decided to take some pictures of our new store!! My latest creations are the adorable flapper hats!! I have so many to take pictures and post, but I took so many on my phone that it's about to die now and I forgot my charger. So, please bare with me for a few days until I can get that taken care of....

How is everyone's weekend? There are tons of activities going on this weekend~Holiday gift shows, etc. I am ready for the home tours..the highlight of my year. Visiting other peoples' homes (while I'm getting mine ready), gives me tons of inspiration and wonderful ideas to change my stuff up a bit.

While you are shopping this season, and if you are in the Athens area...please come by our new boutique and take a peek. There are 5 of us creative and talented ladies that have some really adorable items and they are perfectly priced for any holiday budget.

Take care and Have a wonderful, safe weekend!!!

Not enough hours in the day...

We or I rather can take a deep breath after getting the boutique open last week....on the other hand that doesn't mean it's relax to the sofa either. Today's plan is to get some of my house re-organized and get ready for the Holidays. Just one more week until the kids are out of school and I get to see my baby again....well, she's not really a baby anymore. She is about to be 18 and extremely talented. ( I wonder who she gets that from?) Britt can draw anything by simply looking at it, and actually her's ends up better than the original....more detailed.
We have some canvas pieces to work on and can't wait to share her artwork.

In addition to the other things I design...I dabble in floral designs too!! The Holiday season really peaks my talents because I can be overkill on the home decorating. I want my children to cherish the memories that I am creating for their futures. Break out the homemade cookies, decorations and let the sparkle begin!!

I am not sure if any of my designs will be at our boutique....but you may contact me if you like any of my examples shown.
