One thing I'm finding that is difficult about blogging this time of the year is that I can't share much of what I'm creating because I don't want the recipients to see! I thought I would share this piece because I know it won't be seen by the "cheese girls" anytime soon. They are much too busy! This is a little something I made for my son's bosses, 2 delightful young sisters who own a gourmet cheese shop in the adorable town of Claremont. The Cheese Cave opened just last summer and has been a huge success since. The girls have been written up in the Los Angeles Times as well as Los Angeles Magazine with rave reviews. They sell the most delicious cheeses from all over the world. They know everything there is to know about cheese because it's their passion in life. I used cheese labels from some of their cheeses as well as some washers with a bit of bling for embellishment. The shop is very, I guess I'd call it upcycled, vintage urban in feeling with chalkboard walls, used wood trim and curtains made of hundreds of washers tied with twine. I think this will be a nice addition and can perhaps hang next to the life size silver cow that stands near the front of the store!
