Even with the record-breaking snowfall and low temps we've been experiencing through out the country, we have so much to look forward to. Spring will be here in a few months.

It really is a time of preparation and anticipation. A time of waiting and hibernating. So many happenings await us even beginning in February.

The season of love is upon us. Valentine's Day. Weddings. Babies. Mother's Day. The thought of spring and growth and green makes all of the cabin fever dissipate.

Especially when I have time to share some of the wonderful creations we've been designing at Maggie's Rose Garden

We ordered several types of new silk flowers from various online retailers and I love them. My favorite flowers still come from the best craft store in the US, Hobby Lobby , but we love being able to offer a variety of sizes and types of flowers. The flowers are used in so many of the products we design including the deluxe tutus, princess wands, blooming flower headbands, bloomin beanies, flip-flops, and more.

I wanted to offer something new to those who love Valentine's Day and I was inspired by ribbon I picked up at Hobby Lobby The ribbon is decorated in the suits of playing cards; hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. I thought how fun would it be to design a tutu I've named Queen of Your Heart. The tutu is made of red, black, and white tulle with a black satin ribbon wrapped waist and finished with bow and flower clip of choice. The black tulle has red satin appliques and the red tulle has black satin appliques. I love the look of this tutu, perfect for Valentine's Day photos. I am also adding many more of the flower headbands and beanie hats to inventory in a rainbow of colors and flower sizes. We've also been working on Valentine hair bows, curlies, and clippies to match all your little lovlies Valentine outfits.
