Friday’s Favorites: From Steampunk to Rustic Denim

Happy Friday! I am SO looking forward to this weekend. I’ll be working on more bouquets for my Etsy shop as well as taking new photos that will do my bouquets justice. Crossing my fingers that I will get a sale or two in the next week.

This week’s Friday’s Favorites takes us from Steampunk to racy lacy gowns sure to grab some major attention. I hope you enjoy my finds and as always, please consider buying from individual artisans and businesses. There’s just nothing like a great bit of vintage and the character of handmade goods. Enjoy your weekend!

Friday’s Favorite: Cute as a button: RBK Creations

This week’s Friday’s Favorite was featured as part of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show I had up on the blog in March and April. I chose to feature RBK Creations again as they have begun selling necklaces that showcase their beautiful flower work as well as their vintage inspired aesthetic. “Brenda and Ariela from RBK Creations are an extremely talented mother and daughter design duo: “Brenda (the mother) and Ariela (the daughter) have worked with brides all over the world to add a whimsical touch to their big day. The storefront on Etsy was launched in August 2008. RBK offers a wide variety of bouquets, boutonnieres, décor and accessories for all types of brides. Brenda and Ariela can create something for everyone in the bridal party. Each piece can also be customized to the bride’s choice of colors. There are many varieties available including: buttons, felt, satin and organza.” -http://rbkcreations.com/about/

❤❤ “Ariela and Brenda are truly artists! We ordered a custom package for our wedding and we could not have been more pleased with the result! All of the details, from the perfectly dyed buttons to match our color palette, to the vintage accents, gears and watch parts, were over and above what we expected. You can tell these ladies take a lot of pride in their creations. They were very quick with communication, turnaround time and shipping. We felt like they truly cared about our event and getting things just right. We absolutely LOVE the look of the pieces, how functional they are and how they will last forever. Everything is absolutely gorgeous! I highly recommend Ariela and Brenda, they are amazing!” -http://www.etsy.com/people/reallybadkitty/feedback?page=3
