Flowers by Michelle Lywood

Michelle Lywood has been using ribbons from Vintages in her beautiful floral designs. She is a local floral designer and describes herself as "an all around flower enthusiast."

Michelle offers fully customized floral design services for weddings, events and creative shoots. My design approach is to seek out the freshest, most beautiful blooms and style them in a way that allows their natural beauty to shine.

She sent us these photos of several of her custom designed bouquets that have some lovely Hanah silk ribbons flowing from them.

I recently discovered your shop and have been in a few times to purchase ribbons for wedding bouquets for my business.  I just received photos from the photographer for one that featured your ribbons and wanted to pass them along, as I know you both take great care in selecting the products that are offered in your shop! Thank you for making such beautiful things accessible to people like me!  Thank you Michelle.

Seed & Feed Marching Abominable Band

Seed & Feed Marching Abominable
What a surprise! We were strolling through a bunch of showrooms at the Atlanta Mart a couple of days ago (more about what we found later) and heard this energetic music. Sounded like the Stanford Band, to be honest. But NO! This was the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable, Atlanta’s wildest community band. They played wildly! They gyrated wildly! They were like the Stanford band but 20-30-40 years older ... and they were terrific to watch and listen to. It would be hard to find more energy from a band anywhere.

The Seed & Feed Marching Abominable, Atlanta’s wildest community band, has been thrilling audiences since 1974, performing at home and on the road in festivals, on stages, and in support of community events and fundraisers of all kinds. Throughout its history, the Band has electrified audiences with its trademark style of explosive sound and colorful street theater. Originally formed as part of a theatre company, the band is well known for its fancifully costumed performers as well as its high-energy music.

If you are ever down in the Atlanta area and can take the time to see them at one of their gigs ... do it. You will not be disappointed. Click here for their story and their event calendar.
