GDO Featured

A couple days ago, I received an email from Laura with Bright Bold and Beautiful. I was thrilled that she put my "orange" Flower Shop skirt in her treasury on ETSY. Then, today, I saw that she featured me on her blog with my "moss"skirt from Nature Walk. Check out the gorgeous selections on her site. She has a great eye for beautiful things of all kinds. The colors in her recent post are captivating. Here's the link.

EVENT Charlottesville City Market Saturday August 29th 7a-12noon

My kids started back to school this week. And, it is bitter sweet for me to have the house to myself for the first time in 12 years. I am anxious to have some time to focus on GDO for the fall and the shows on our schedule will keep me working around the clock. I just returned from vacation and feel revived and ready to get my creative juices flowing for fall and the holidays! I will be at the City Market every Saturday in September, rain or shine. The crowd last week was excellent and the temperaturs are expected to be a little more bearable this weekend. Hope to see you bright and early. Market runs from 7am to 12noon.

More exciting news to share! My transitional skirts have been a big hit in the boutique world. Shops are looking to offer unique hand made, American made designs. Somehow, my Flower Shop skirts have stood out amongst the rest. I was recently approached by Sally from Polka Dot Market. I'm excited to have my designs alongside the adorable goodies she offers. Check out her online boutique here.

EVENT Charlottesville City Market August 15th 7a to 12 noon

In the midst of wholesale order overload, I've managed to restock on everyones favorites. Including, our GDO signature necklace that sold out last weekend. My talented friend, Michelle Stoots, has branched out to bring us these amazing handmade, one of a kind rings. They are soldered by hand and mounted to a metal filigree adjustable ring base. I am excited to offer these for fall, but won't have them with me until next weekend. Can't wait to see everyone and enjoy the gorgeous weather we're expecting.

I am so excited to finally have fabrics on their way for our Nature Walk collection this fall. I am keeping it simple with a combination of two fabrics and will offer coordinating knit applique tops for each design. I will continue to offer The Flower Shop Collection until further notice.

Announcement GDO goes International

Some exciting news to share this month. Recently I was approached by a business owner from the UK who is looking to offer a selective section of children's boutique clothing in her new storefront, opening soon, in Swansea.
I have family overseas and have been inspired by European designs all my life. I never imagined actually having my designs in a European Boutique. I will be traveling abroad in the Spring and hope to make Swansea one of my stops.
I'm a little overwhelmed with the growth GDO has seen this year. But, the timing couldn't be better, as my last little one starts Kindergarten. I have the support of my family and friends behind me and I love what I am doing.

Announcement GDO coming soon to The Pear Tree

Yesterday I met with The Pear Tree in Fredericksburg VA. Their new storefront is amazing and I am so excited that they have decided to introduce children's aparrel this season, starting with Girls Day Out.
