Tomorrow never knows

Hello again! Remember me? I know, it's been ages since I did a proper post. Not to bore you with excuses, but for a while there, I was taking six classes. Whew! I've also been in my new house almost two months and we still don't have internet. Luckily, that's getting remedied this week. In the meantime, I've been utterly dependent on coffee shops and my school's wireless.

You may notice that things look a little different around here - I gave the blog a little facelift a few weeks ago, but never announced it officially. So if you're just seeing it for the first time, I hope you like it!

Some other changes are in the air. In January, the owner of Coat of Many Colors (the vintage shop a few minutes away from my house) is leaving for South Africa, where he will be for two months. While he's gone, my friend Rose and I will be running the shop! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am. I'm going to work there on and off between now and then, and we're going to be getting the basement all cleaned up, which is a huge job. In the basement, we're going to set up a little photo studio so we can start selling things on Etsy. I'm not sure, but it will possibly be linked up with Owl Eyes Boutique. Exciting stuff! I'll be sure to keep you updated.

I'm also in the process of finding a solution to the problem of lack of photos on this poor old blog. My camera's battery is completely kaput, so I'm hopefully going to get a new one soon. I'm also looking to see if I can bring in some guest photographers to spice things up a little.

As if that weren't enough, this Thursday and Friday we're doing a charity bridal fashion show. Last week, we were on TV promoting it - my first time on live TV! A little nervewracking, but it was fun. Anyway, I'm hoping that the event will be well-documented with photos, because there are going to be some seriously incredible dresses.

And in the spirit of the bridal show, here are some of the photos from the vintage bridal photoshoot we did in Petoskey this summer for Somewhere in Time. A huge thank you goes to the Bay View Inn for hosting us - it was beyond lovely!

Sorry for the rushed nature of this post - I was just bursting to share. Have a wonderful weekend!
