  1. Debbie these pieces are just breathless in beauty! I love the tea dress, jacket, and the hat.....the tunic is beautiful too! Hubby told me to go until he found out where it was. I am terrified of flying so it would have to be a road trip.....but I love those lol! We are discussing it all. I hope it doesn't sell out to fast then maybe I'll have a chance. Wish me luck and a prayer might help! You did an amazing job on the choices. And I love the boots with it! Awesome Awesome job girl! Hugs! A great opportunity.....the stylist for Downton Abby should hire you! :)

  2. Every piece that you have designed and created is just dreamy and lovely. This is an event that I cannot miss....I am, however having trouble with the registration and the "add to cart" buttons will not go to Pay Pal. I am sure that I am not doing something correctly. Hope to hear from you for my next step. Thank you.
