going green in march

love the play on words for this months occasional event. not only is dancing goat an earth friendly "green business" with an emphasis on re-purposing and up-cycling, but we are absolutely OBSESSED with the color green.
spring green, avacado green, mint green and all shades in between are hot for spring 2012 and beautifully paired with grey at dancing goat this month.
funky fabric lampshades take the spotlight in our going green display, with mid-century modern drum lampshades covered with geometric patteren atop chic painted lamp bases.
peeks of spring kitsch fill dancing goat in the form of mushroom motifs, birds, bees, bunnies, nests and bird cages. and as always dancing goat has fabulous jewelry and one of a kind book purses for the fashion diva in us all.

minnesota pre-spring

minnesota winters are a bit of an unusual event...we almost always have snow on the ground in march, when many states are welcoming spring tulips and gentle rain. as an occasional store owner, i am torn between creating minnesota appropriate displays or following seasonal trends. march is a challenge. so my compromise is felted wool sweater flowers. using scraps from sweater mittens created by my very talented friend and neighbor, kris, i have designed a garden of repurposed sweater and fabric flowers!!! come check out the full effect during the occasional event at dancing goat studio this coming march 8, 9, 10!!!
