Hello to WordPress!
I’m moving to a different blogging platform, WordPress. The Blog has a new name and address:
LIFE IN CRESCO … and the address is http://www.martiandco.com We’re hoping to be up and going by Nov.5.
Post content will be about my life as an accessory designer and Shop owner in Cresco, Iowa, my birthplace, and also, the birthplace of Dr. Norman Borlaug. Since one of my passions in life is accessorizing you will also, find everything you will want to know about accessories for all the events in your life, especially Bridal accessories And there’s more! Look for photos of my travels, flowers, and tablescapes for weddings, celebrations and everyday life. The plan is to post twice a month on how to source and put together accessories for your outfits for these celebrations and also, for everyday wear. In between these posts will be photos of events, accessories and happenings from scenic Northeast Iowa. And most of all, we will continue to give you high quality personal service in accessorizing your outfits to make sure all aspects of your day are covered with style.
Now to cover what has happened over the last couple of months. Summer has gone by so fast for me. Has it for you? Here are some pictures of what’s been going on in our lives and at the Shop.
