What's In Store?
Happy New Year, everyone!!! How are you doing with your Resolutions? Need some help? We're here for you! Did you know that the tradition of New Year's Resolution began in ancient Babylon? Apparently they planted crops, made promises to pay their debts and returned borrowed items in the hopes of ensuring a favorable year. The tradition continued in ancient Rome with sacrifices and promises of good behavior. If neither of those options interest you, perhaps you are more gallant than the rest of us! In that case you likely resonate with the knights of the Middle Ages. They would renew their vow to chivalry by placing their hands on a live or roasted peacock. The annual “Peacock Vow” would take place at the end of the year, as a resolution to maintain their knighthood values! We're thinking either peacocks were more abundant at that time, or there was an annual raid of the local zoo...Just saying. During the month of January we are inspired by resolving to be positive and creative, as well as comfy, cozy and warm!

From the ReTwist-T Studios
Tanya, from ReTwist-T, received a request to create a small Ruglette that would coordinate with a unique moose lamp. The customer brought in her treasured piece of glittering décor...and Tanya pulled out her loom and went to work!
After several visits with the customer and her moose, the centerpiece was complete! Tanya was able to capture the desired golden flecks in the piece by weaving in fabric trim!
Thank you, Tanya, for bringing this special piece to life!
