Hold On to Your Hats Gloves & Boleros! A preview of our first virtual TRUNK SHOW!!!!!

Here's the scoop......... Last year I bought this line of knitwear for the shop. The pieces consisted of two sizes of capes with mini ruffles in contrasting colors. And a stole with three layers of relaxed ruffles. I bought gloves with crocheted flowers and the fingers cut out so you can answer your phone and text, and hats. Robes damn near had a coronary because we live in south central TEXAS where, pardonnez moi, we don't wear a lot of hats and gloves. He asked me WHY in the *!*?! did you buy apparel??????? This question, struck me rather amusingly coming from a guy nicknamed "Robes". I said "because this line reminded me of EVA TRA LA LA from Paris." He said ....."BUY MORE".........We sold out 4 times......Hats gloves, EVERYTHING......This is some of the 2010 collection..............LOVING IT!!
SCARVES, FELT NECKLACES, JUST WAIT AND SEE!!!!!!!!! We will keep you posted as to when it will be. 23 colors and you can do contrasting ruffles.......I can't wait we've never done this before.... Spread the word hummingbirds!!!!!!!! xo

  4. You know how this hummingbird feels about this line. I do declare that even us Texan women will be wanting to wear despite warmer weather. So happy to read of it's smashing success thus far and I think the best is yet to come.

    I tweeted & facebooked about it today, had to share the loveliness!
    Hugs to you & Robes xxoo

  5. Fun, feminine and FABULOUS!!!


  6. Who could resist those ruffles even in a Texas heatwave?

  10. Maryanne, can always count on you for loveliness. Funny, I was just going to say that these will be perfect in Seattle, coming fall, but the blogger before me just said the same! (:

    Hope all is well! Sorry I have been so blog lazy this summer. You will see more of me soon!

  13. we really need to start wearing hats and gloves again.
    it would add a great deal to our social graces...
    which, in my opinion would be a welcomed improvement.
