Here Comes the Bride

Spring and summer brings the spotlight of the season to brides. I love how pretty the brides look on their wedding day. Those beautiful flowing gowns and the accessories they wear.  Bridal showers are important too.  With this in mind I decided to create lovely bridal accessories from special occasion aprons to wedding day accessories.



This lovely white crisp bridal apron is great for the bridal shower,
 reception or everyday wear after the wedding.  
What ever time the bride decides to wear her white apron is appropriate. 
 Just slip it on over your outfit and you will become the blushing bride over and over again.




White lace and ribbon cuffs are the perfect accessory to the brides wedding day look. 
 They have ribbon ties in the back to fit all size wrists.




Victorian inspired choker necklace adds lace and elegance to the brides wedding ensemble



Matching choker necklace with two wrist cuffs.



Bridal hair facsinator for the bride who doesn't want the traditional long veil but a simple short elegant one.

Custom designs and colors available just contact me:  heartandsowdesigns@yahoo.com

New Photography Adventure!

I have decided to take up photography.  I always took pictures but with just haste and for the moment.  Now I am working towards a style and purpose.  My goal is to take pictures of children in vintage costumes.  I will experiment with other types of pictures too but want to do this professionally too.  Its another form of art that I have fell in love with.  When you have a goal and vision you look at things with new eyes and look at the whole picture not just the person or thing shooting.
