Valentine Displays at Bolt

Valentine's Day displays have been put up at Bolt. Rosemary (one of the owners) loves to do displays, so she did these up. I especially love the "lady in the chair" down below. She saw this idea in a magazine ad for some high end fabric--I can't remember what it was. She ran with it, and I think it came out great. It really does look like a woman sitting there, doesn't it?
We are running low on accessories. I think we should go to the gift show in NYC and buy some new stuff. But we still have a bunch of antique majolica, which is very pretty.

I'm trying to think of something sweet and clever to get for Kathleen for Valentine's Day. Last year I gave her a pretty necklace. I'm thinking maybe a new shirt or something this year. hmmm...any suggestions?

Sharon, these are great displays! The "woman" is pretty darn nifty. Great idea. Wish I had funds to collect Majolica. I've always loved it!

A gift show in NYC?? Sounds like fun!

I don't have any ideas for Kathleen's gift. Wish I did.

What beautiful images. I love the faux lady in the chair. Such an elegant display.

Fantastic displays, Sharon!

I think a shirt is a great idea. You know, I'm still drooling over the coolio fabrics and styles at Tracy Porter's website. But I was thinking you could buy a long-sleeved T-shirt for Tat and customize it with some kind of applique work and some of your coolio fabrics and get a similar effect....

I think a 60 inch high-def plasma TV would make a nice V-day present - (to start). I think Puddy would agree.

Amber and I are thinking along the same lines but I was thinking with all the gorgeous beads you have that you could do some sort of design on it and add beaded embelishments. Girls her age love new clothes. You can never go wrong there.

Love the displays AND all that gorgeous fabric. I love fabric.
