We’re happy to announce that one again, we’ll be participating in the Tombstone Tour of Homes. Believe it or not, Tombstone isn’t just a city with a famous gunfight, it’s also known for it’s wonderful Holiday Tour of Homes! This year will be the third year that our No. 11 is included in this lovely event and once again, “The Dressmaker’s Cottage at #11” will be fully decorated for Christmas and will have extra surprises of antique machines, part of our antique clothing museum, some new period furniture pieces and a few sparkly things. Stay tuned for more! 🙂

Wedding Time At Helldorado…

Helldorado is not only a reunion for fans of all things Tombstone, but it’s also a great place to get married and that’s where Lily Absinthe swings into action…one of recent projects is this wedding dress:

And here’s a standing view:

This dress is one of our Tatiana style and while it’s hard to tell from the picture, there’s a light green underlayer on the overskirt, giving the dress a subtle shade of green.  It was, understandably, a stressful day for the bride but in the end, it was worth it:

Angus is checking everything out…he’s not too crazy about the mess…

Things were in a bit of a disarray in the front room (formerly the bedroom) but the plan is to restore it to its original purpose as a parlor, complete with a few working sewing machines- yes, it’s meant to be a functional room. 🙂 And here’s a progress picture:

And of course, Angus has already chosen his new resting place…

It’s October and that means Helldorado Days in Tombstone! This year, Helldorado is scheduled on October 19 through October 21, 2018 and the high point of the event is the parade to he held on Sunday October 21. First started in 1928 to publicize the town, Helldorado is held on the third Sunday of October and commemorates the town’s early years and especially that 30-second gunfight that took place somewhere close by to the OK Corral. We’ll be meeting with clients and otherwise working on some projects and having a little fun. See you there! 🙂
