The day finally arrived.   The 1st Lucky 7 Design Holiday Boutique was held on Saturday, Dec. 10th.   I wanted to introduce my eco-friendly accessory line along with my vintage finds to friends, family and their friends.   It was a taste of what will be coming up in the Spring when Lucky 7 Design will have a physical location on Main Street in our downtown business district.  Can you get any sweeter than Main Street?

My home was merchandised room by room according to different services offered Lucky 7 Design.

My husband's creative idea to cover my stovetop.  I didn't admit immediately how much I loved the idea....but I do!

Vintage tray redesigned to chalkboard sign...also old terracotta pots made into candle stick bases with moss and holly and functional candle.

Redesigned beat up old Queen Anne console table into fabulous new beverage table (for tonight anyway)

Snowball wreaths, Sunburst style wreaths, Jute Santa wreath, Red burlap stockings, Santa Belt stockings and vintage chalkboard serving trays all for sale.

So grateful to those who attended and for their positive feedback.  Reassures me that I am doing the right think in pursuing my dream of opening a shop.

Special thanks to my supportive and handy husband and my supportive kiddos who think Mama is sometimes a mad scientist creative all of these things.  Today my son said to me " I just wanna say Im so proud of you, you really are doing what you wanna do, kinda making your dream come true. Good Luck".   
Yes Im now crying as I type this, but it's warms my heart that he gets it and appreciates it too.
