Ari's Birthday Bed and a Sale in the Shop

My lovely friend Shawn was the one who recommended that I showcase my wares at the Ross Marketplace about a month ago.  As she was instrumental in putting this charity event together, she stopped by my booth to say hello.  I was so happy to see her!  About a week later she sent me a text asking me to make the bedding for her daughter's birthday present.  She comes to pick it up today.  I put it on my bed so that she can see it and approve before she leaves with it.  

Although we do not see each other very frequently, she is a very special person to me and I am grateful for her friendship.  

I made a queen duvet cover and two euro shams.  White linen with the mini raw edge ruffle.

 I think that my favorite part, aside from the way the material is rumpled looking when it is right out of the wash, is that we decided to secure it with 1" wide grosgrain ribbon as opposed to buttons.  This is the under side.

I placed the bows far down enough though that if she wanted to turn it down they did not show.

I am really excited for her to come get it.  I hope she loves it as much as I do.

She also ordered one of my princess shams as an accent.  

To celebrate my 100th sale at Maison de Michele, I am offering a 10% off coupon good on any item or items in inventory.  

Have a great weekend everybody!
