Lily and Nancy in 'da' house!
Romantic Homes magazine has a full 8 page spread on Gilding the Lily in their Oct. issue. For those of you not familiar with GTL it's a romantic boutique located in old town Fullerton,CA filled with vintage millinery, ribbons, buttons, books, ledgers, German glass glitter, crepe paper, rubber stamps,beads, jewelry finding, pearls and oodles of odds and ends. The great thing about it is Nancy, proprietress, is constantly stocking the store with new vintage finds so that every time you go there is something you just can't live with out. She transports her clientele into a more genteel time updating her window displays in enticing vintage visuals from turn of the century wedding gowns, to beach inspired vignettes. Every holiday has a special place somewhere in her boutique that is out of the ordinary.....ALWAYS original and one of a kind.
She was kind enough to list her teachers by name for the myriad classes that lily has been offering and I am so honored to be on that list. She also mentions the positive effect blogs have had not only for her business but women in general for coming together and supporting each other whether it be in business or creativity and I couldn't agree more. Women are the glue (sometimes invisible) that hold everything in life together and in the times we have been facing as a collective, establishments like the Lily are havens for ideas, encouragement, inspiration and hope and I whole heartedly support them, especially women owned business'.
So go buy a copy! There are some other very tasty eye treats and articles to wet your creative appetite. Gilding the Lily has several for sale or you can find them at usual outlets. THANKS NANCY!!!!
