🌱 I could not recommend this shop more!!! However it looks on screen, it's even more beautiful and delicate in person. The pieces were in perfect condition when I got them and I couldn't be happier. — Sara, Oct. 2020
🌱 On time and perfect. This is my second order from this store and I couldn't be happier. I contacted the owner beforehand to see if she could do a poem that wasn't listed and it was no problem at all for her. Great store and great customer service. — Craig, July 2020
