Gilded Sweetness

The weather is absolutely amazing here at the Jersey Shore...all the windows are open...and we're gilding everything that's sweet! Just wanted to pop in and give you guys a peek at what we're up to in the studio. Taking classic bakery sweets and dressing them up in frilly, fancy, handpainted faux frames. As artists our roots are in antiques restoration so we love any chance to mix equal parts of our two worlds.
I just love pastel tones set against baroque gilded frames...all scrolly and ornamental. I set about designing these pieces the same way I'd love to put a fashion collection together...pairing layers of pale pink, cream & aqua cotton & linen with over-the-top gold bamboo earrings...etc...

photos found on Pinterest.

So this is what's been going on the past couple of days. We'll expand on this collection a bit more...but the big wooden signs seem to be calling for us. We've got all of these sketches of big vintage style boardwalk, lemonade, cakes, cupcakes, ice cream etc...And just hearing the seagulls and smelling the ocean is so so inspiring! So those will be coming real soon.
I hope everyone has a great Holiday weekend! Back soon! xoxo, Jenny
