Dreams Are Whispers From Your Soul

Dreams are whispers from your soul.

The beauty of a dream is that its life is as unending as you choose. So when life's responsibilities take priority over a dream, whether for a day, a month, or a year, the dream is still as vivid as the day it first whispered to you that it wanted to become real.

And so it has been with The Perfect Touch. The dream of a place for Victorian-inspired creations to be enjoyed in their making and offering had to be put to the side for a bit. In late 2008 when the economy forced many companies to cut budgets and personnel and the housing market was rapidly deflating, we sold our home to ensure our freedom to live and work wherever necessary. That choice brought us to the beautiful complex of Mosteller Mansion in Hickory, North Carolina where we settled in to wait out the economic hurricane. The dream that was The Perfect Touch came into reality during this time and its beginnings written here.

My last post was March 1, 2009. The Fashion Show was tentatively set for two showings in May featuring mothers and daughters. Amy and her daughter Finley were the models for the 1860s gowns. Amy worked at Mosteller Mansion but her husband had been offered a wonderful new job opportunity and Amy and her family would have to relocate. Sad news for both Mosteller Mansion and the Fashion Show. But every cloud has a silver lining and Amy's replacement already lived at the complex and would do her best to keep the Fashion Show moving forward. Amy's replacement was me! So in mid-March I began my new position. Could I work in more beautiful surroundings? Take a peek...

And could anyone appreciate these surroundings more than a lover of all things Victorian?  And so the story continues for The Perfect Touch, but on another day...

With Love,
