And we’re finally open!!

August 20, 2009 at 7:42 PM (1) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Lest you start to think that we’ve abandoned you all or succumbed to laziness due to our recent lack of postage…let me reassure you that we have not forgotten our loyal blog followers!! We’ve merely been trapped under heavy piles of lumber behind buckets of paint.. But we’re finally free again!!! So we invite you to view our journey from upstairs at the Factory at Franklin to our shiny, new location just off the commons area- DOWNSTAIRS (yes, still at the Factory)!! 

So, just in case you for some unknown reason were unable to visit us previously, this is what the shop used to look like..

And this is what the new space looked like before its magical transformation into Adornments-land.
The new space!
Of course, this just wouldn’t do!  It all had to go! 🙂

Nothing says construction like a girl posing with a ladder in front of a shop covered in brown paper.

The first thing to go- the black wall!

Thankfully our families were willing to chip in to help us out!! Thanks everyone!!!
So, finally, after much painting, constructing, organizing, etc… Voila!

Adornments is moving… downstairs!

July 11, 2009 at 4:52 PM (1) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

That’s right- Adornments gallery is moving downstairs in the Factory at Franklin in August- so we should be that much more easy to find!  We will be just off the common area next to Constant Craving (yes, we will now smell tasty food all day long… ahhh so good…)!

We're moving!

We're moving!

Look out for updates as we track the process of designing and decorating our new space!

NCS Renaissance Fair!

May 7, 2009 at 6:55 PM (Adornments News) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

A while back we were invited to participate in a Ren. Fair at the Nashville Christian School, held in conjunction with their school play, “Much Ado About Nothing.” This is the first year that the school put together such a to-do, and it sounds like it’s likely to become a yearly event. We were eager to join- mostly because we heard there would be turkey legs!!

And there were..

Mmm... Turkey leg! Who wouldn't go to a Ren Fair for that!!

Take a look at our amazing sign! 🙂 That’s right, we’re wearing costumes! Well…pseudo-costumes (they had wrist watches back then, right?)…

Adornments Sign! yes, we used blue tape to hang it..

We were asked to have a semi-working booth so that it would be somewhat educational as well. So Lucinda brought her loom and demonstrated weaving (of course…Laura and I were the mules for this venture…)

Lucinda weaving!

While Laura was hard at work on some new jewelry!

Look at all that bling!

Of course, the biggest problem of the day was the weather… It was rather windy which caused all of our pretties to keep being blown over. So I spent my time (when not eating funnel cakes and roasted corn!) putting every thing back upright.

It's perfect!

It's perfect!

At least, until the rain called an end to the day. In all though, many funnel cakes were had and oohs and aahs abounded! Thanks to NCS for having us!!
