The back half of 'Twas Brillig is in a shambles!!! In an effort to switch gears from Christmas to Spring, I literally tore the place up yesterday and today...more so today since I removed the window display. I wasn't completely prepared to replace it but made it look "not Christmas-y" so I suppose it will do for the moment!
I also redecorated the moose.
Moose? Yep. Moose. My shop mascot is a moose... in fact, it is the very moose that you see for my profile picture! He had bright green Christmas balls hanging from his antlers until this morning. Now he is sporting pink and brown polka-dotted ribbon around his neck and has tiny red flowers in his mouth. I think he is looking for a sweetie moose for Valentine's day! LOL
That dang moose gets more folks to walk into my shop than just about anything. Everyone wants to know if he's for sale. I could have sold 100 of him so far. Really. I'm not exaggerating. Yes, I am desperately searching for a similar moose to sell. Who knew he'd be that popular?!?
Today I switched gears and went for a less colorful but just as busy look. I thought the purple hyacinths gave this centerpiece a nice punch of color, especially in the midst of all that green. You can't see the grapevine very well in this picture but it is coiled through the entire piece. The grapevine is very cool to work with as it's not real and is wired to bend any which way! And of course, I had to add my signature curly things and ferns. I can't design without curly things and ferns!!!
By the end of next week, 'Twas Brillig should be back in order and I will post pictures of the shop interior with the Valentine's Day and Spring motifs. I've discovered in the short time since I opened the doors that I don't like disorder in my displays. Anyone who knows me will find that funny because I am not known for being a neat-freak. Not even close!
