Scones and Tea

Jack and I celebrated the wedding of Prince William and Kate with a nice breakfast of scones and tea on the porch. You can spy my newest vintage tablecloth! (And we put in a nice brisk walk before to help work off all those scones!)

Did you stay up for the big event?

New Lingerie Bags

New Art Lingerie Bag: Romantic Interlude. One of a kind and perfect for any bride. Exclusively at Mireio


The weekend graced the north coast with a bit of sun on Friday and Saturday. So, IZ and I made the most of it and blitzed through our very overgrown yard. But I’m hoping to be in the studio most of this week, working on new lingerie bags.

I have to say, I’m very excited about these new lingerie bag. I really enjoy doing one of a kind work—I start out with a huge stack of my favorite vintage fabrics, laces, beads, and buttons. And before I’m done, there’s a huge creative mess on my table. . . I do messy really well! It’s also lovely to envision Mireio being part of someone’s big day. The first bag, Magic Carpet Ride, sold to a very sweet bride who is getting married this weekend. I will be wishing her well as she starts her new life —and that’s certainly inspiration to create more of these stunning lingerie bags.

So, off to make a mess I am! But I’ll be back through the week to share my progress and some surprises along the way. (hint: there’s new glass coming to Mireio!) Stay tuned!

It’s a Weekend

Pretty new Bon Bon Soaps from Mireio. Just $5 for a set of 3, they make a perfect little gift!


Where did the week go? I know I’ve been busy in the studio and my much neglected yard and attempting to slim down for a late summer wedding. And, that sums up my weekend plans as well!

Before I dash off to dig up flower beds, there are a few new items in Mireio. I hope you’ll take a peek. It’s the perfect time to be thinking about Mother’s Day and, of course, Wedding Season is upon us. Mireio is a great place to shop for all those beautiful women in your life—and if you need something specific, don’t hesitate to ask. I love custom orders and as always, every Mireio order ships promptly and beautifully wrapped. Like these soaps!
