The City Flea - August 2014

We're back to selling at The City Flea for the fall season! Showcasing our new products for the first time was so much fun! THANK YOU to all who came by our booth to say hello! We truly appreciate your love, support and feedback. It was a great turnout and thankfully the weather held up. This time last year, the City Flea had about half the vendors they have now. It's exciting to see how much it has grown :) There were so many booths, we didn't get a chance to see them all...I'm hoping to walk around more next month!

We did get asked once or twice about our jewelry and shoes that we sold last year. In case you were wondering, we have decided to put these on hold for the time being. We may bring them back in the future, but for now we are currently focusing on our newest products. We apologize for any confusion and thank you again for hanging in there with us as we transition.

In case you missed out this month, we will be selling again at the September and October markets! See our Events page for details. Below are some of our favorite captures from Saturday's flea market! Enjoy and hope to see ya next month.

Life is a Beautiful Ride

This summer I had the privilege of making a wedding cake topper for two dear friends of mine, Matthew and Lindsey. It was so much fun and I'm so honored they asked me to contribute to their big day!

Lindsey and Matthew are avid bike riders, so when Lindsey approached me with a "bike-themed" cake topper I was definitely on board. She sent me a few Google images of toppers with well as the colors of their wedding, the groom's attire, and her stunning hair and dress.

Once I had these basic elements, I was ready to conceptualize more personal touches. I used some of their SUPER adorable engagement photos by Emily Moseley as inspiration and reference for sculpting.

You can find more great photos by Emily on her website and blog. I wanted to include some distinctly "Lindsey and Matthew" details like Lindsey's beloved Chuck Taylor's and West Sixth Brewing beer cans on the back of one of their bikes - they have four! Matthew works at West Sixth with my boyfriend Andy, and you can learn more about them here.

Once the cake topper was finished, I couldn't wait to give it to M & L! It's one of my favorites! When I called Lindsey two weeks before the big day to tell her it was about ready, she told me she wanted to be surprised. What?! I have to hold onto this awesome surprise for two more weeks?! I'm the type of gift giver who can't wait until Christmas to give you your gifts - especially if I know you're going to just love it. But lo and behold, I made it the two weeks. And it was well worth it.


The topper turned out great! And it was wonderful working with Haley Lawson of Wildflour (the cake baker) and Anna Bynum of Bellaire Blooms (the florist)! The cake's flavors were Vanilla and Key Lime - I die. I may or may not have had two slices of cake. All of our hard work turned out a beautiful and delicious cake celebrating a totally rad couple.

 A huge thanks to Matthew and Lindsey for letting me be a part of their day, to the photographic stylings of Emily Moseley, to Haley for making scrumptious and sturdy cakes, and Anna for making our collaboration bloom with color and beauty!
