December is a crazy month. We have been so busy!! The shopping season has started and we are not complaining:)

We met so many nice people at The Way Out West Bird Show. Lots to do and see there:) And we made some new customers.

We had a wonderful time at the Greenfield Holiday Boutique. Lots of nice people with good taste in jewelry!!

Coming up this month....

We have a Car Show December 13th.
(will post more information as I get it)

For all you who have been asking if we will be planning to attend more of shows, we have decided to wait till January to attend any more so that we may get ready for the holidays ourselves:)
February will be huge and we do have a couple lined up for January.

Sorry for all of you who have been shopping off the website. We have been tremendously busy and I just haven't finished updating our website and much of our jewelry has sold out. I will be updating in the next few days to put up new and take off the old. Thanks so much for your understanding. Keep in mind that we have a large inventory and that we probably have something for any occasion -ask us what you are looking for and will find it (we can email a picture-it's much quicker than posting it on the web). If you've seen something from one of our shows that you are interested in, email us to see if it is still available, even if it isn't, we might have something similar. Thanks again for your understanding.

Halloween, our favorite time of year, has come and gone like a blink of an eye. We hope that everyone enjoyed their holiday. Good news is, we are now in jacket weather... okay maybe hoodie. But still, there is a definite crispness in the air... LOVE IT.

How to make a Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett costume update

I just finished the major sewing parts of the costume... Yay!!!
Here are some pictures of the finished product. When Halloween arrives, I will post us wearing them:)

I decided to make Matt's pants and used Butterick 3648
This was definitely a tricky pattern, took me hours to make it...but worth it I think. I used some navy blue suiting that I had gotten on $1 day at Savers.
I did make some hand warmers for Matt using a pair of grey socks. I think it looks pretty good, I just cut it off at the heel and then a little hole for the thumb. Now if I can just find a scarf!!!

Make a Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett Costume

I have decided to make a Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett costume this year for Halloween. Since there are no real patterns out there, I am going to try to find something to make my own. I will keep everyone posted to new developments in the outfits.

I have been thrift store shopping for vintage clothing at Goodwill and such places with no luck. I did go to Joanns recently and bought some cool decorator fabric that looks very antique for $3/yard - got 7 yards (I am trying to do this on a budget). I have looked all over the internet for costumes and they are soooooo expensive and not up to the exact look I want. I figure $50 will be my budget for the costume (so x 2 = $100 total budget .... I will try not go over:)

I do tend to stock up on patterns when they go on sale for $0.99 each, so I had some patterns in my arsenal. Luckily, patterns were on sale again so I was able to find something that would fit what I had in mind...

for Sweeney's vest I decided on Simplicity 4083 - I will make the dickey too since Matt already has a similar shirt but not collar... had the pattern and I already have some fabric I think I will use, it's a brown moleskin that I happen to have... so far I haven't had to buy anything yet:)

for Mrs. Lovett bloomers and shirt - simplicity 2777
skirt - butterick 3418 ($1.99)
black and red verticle stockings - Ordered online from Jaded Minx ($14)
underbust corset - Fredericks of Hollywood Ultimate Cincher ($25)
