The Beauty Is In The Details

The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched....they must be felt with the heart.
--Helen Keller

The Perfect Touch is thrilled to have become part of the family of wonderful shops in Shabby Lane Shops online shopping mall!

The beauty and creativity of the website alone is worth the visit! The shops are spread over several pages with such wonderful names as Village Plaza Shops, Towne Square Shops, and Market Square Shops. Today a new page has been added - Garden Court Shops - and it will be home to The Perfect Touch! This beautiful shop with the pink damask awning and ironwork door will link to our website. If you haven't been to Shabby Lane Shops you are in for a special eye candy treat! Make yourself a cup of something delicious and prepare to spend some luxurious time wandering the beautiful shops!

Several other special details have been part of this past week's enjoyment. Julianne, the extraordinarily talented designer of The Perfect Touch website, gave us our first glimpse of a personal calling card. The addition of a satin ribbon makes the card something extra special.

A beautiful storage box for our hats and bonnets has been designed and as soon as we make our first sample I will share a picture with you.

Meanwhile, up in the sewing loft, the last tiny details for the Spring Victorian Fashion Show 2009 are being planned. Inspirations are being translated into patterns, fabrics, and trims, and excited mothers and daughters are being measured. More beautiful details (and lots of pictures) to come!

With Love,
