It's a party

Bloomsbury a go go...
Welcome baby!
We brought a little vintage flare to Nicole's baby shower.

Last spring we started to get the word out that we were ready to party.

Gathering up our pretty things and bringing them along to create a vintage meets modern party feel for our customers.

Our little Bloomsbury birds were perfect for the twigs.

Vintage china, linens, bottles, silver... What ever we needed to create a beautiful setting for a party.

These milk bottles are part of our signiture look,
They always look great!

Nicole and her mom Debbie were so pleased with the shower. It was a real joy to work with them.

Sweet little shoes!

More photos from our party

Is it over already?
So nice to chat with Amy. She loved the store and the many fans that stopped to
meet her. We hope to see her again soon.

Loretta is a huge fan of Amy's work and sent along her photos for us to share.
She has incorporated so many of Amy's materials into her projects.

Thanks Loretta!

Amy's Visit

What a delightful visit we had with Amy Butler. We were all a little nervous, but she made us feel completely comfortable. She just has a warm and sincere personality that is a pleasure to be around.

We worked hard on getting the store ready for our big night and it looked great.
Of course the sweets make every party a success.

We were so happy that another Bloomsbury "sister" made the trip for our party.
Gina left the shop a couple years ago when she moved to the Cleveland area. We love her creative flare. Check back for details on her awesome barn sale that will be coming up in May. You gotta love a barn sale....especially one like this.
This is some awesome barn.

Customers were all excited about the projects in Amy's books.
We have a few left in the store that Amy signed....Now that's a treasure.

We can't thank the Pink Moon Cupcake Bakery enough.
They treated us to the ultimate party food.
The cupcakes are unbelievable! Snickerdoodle is one of my favorites.

Treat yourself!

more to come.....

On your mark, get

After a crash course (again) with my partner Karla,
I decided to make my first pillow.
Ironing, it.

trim from Sew to it
Help and excitement from Mr. Biggelsworth ....
not "sew" much.

Lucy is so nervous, she can hardly watch.

And we have my first throw pillow!
Don't look too close or you'll see my flaws.
An emergency phone call to Karla and she explains that, yes there is a problem, but it can be fixed. (I need to invest in a seam ripper quick)

Whew...sweat on my brow. This sewing stuff is pretty intense.
But I'm on my way.
When I grow up, I want to be Karla then Amy Butler, then I will rule....
But until then, you can find me and my perfectly imperfect pillow @ my favorite place to be and create, Bloomsbury Loft

See you Thursday February 12th at the open house.
Keep sewing or get started soon.
You'll love it! ~beth
