It’s almost Valentine’s Day! For most of my friends it’s a love it or totally hate it kind of holiday. I personally find it exhausting in all it’s commercialized ways. At the same time I know what it should be about and try to focus on that!
I had the honor of collaborating with a fun new shop and I wanted to share them and their products as well as their story.
But first, here’s something I’ve been thinking about:
You think you know what love is. You think it’s about what people do for you as a kid, then it morphs into a butterfly feeling as a teenager and young adult, then you have a child. This is a love you never knew or fathomed before.
It wasn’t until I had a child that I truly understood God’s love for us as His children. Such a powerful realization for me.
Well this post isn’t about me but I wanted to share my thoughts really quick with you all!
Today I’m featuring Denim and Ruffles, a fun mom and daughter team who make high quality clothing for girls.
They were gracious enough to send my sweet girl a gorgeous Valentine themed dress and here are some shots of the dress.
I asked them to tell a little about themselves and their shop.
“Denim and Ruffles Boutique is your home for modest clothing for children. We believe strongly in our mission to serve Christ through modest dress and are dedicated to creating only the highest quality clothing for your little ones. You will find a wide selection of aprons, girls dresses, girls skirts, and boutique clothing for special occasions within our store. Our clothing is unique in that you can find both formal and casual wear in one location with the knowledge that you are purchasing exceptionally wholesome items.
Denim and Ruffles Boutique was started in February 2012 after I realized there was little in the way of modest dress for my children. I believe in strong moral values, but I also know that little girls like to feel pretty, and enjoy twirling around in bright colored fabrics. My two beautiful ladies are my inspiration, and while homeschooling them I reached an epiphany. If I wanted to teach them how to properly run a home the creation of clothing is an integral portion of those skills. With years of experience myself, I set about to create a business and an example for my children and other families that value modesty.
Bio about me:
I was raised in a Christian home. I received Christ as my personal Saviour when I was seven. I was privileged to grow up in a home where my mom was a seamstress and my grandmother was a quilter and made beautiful quilts. I loved being around all the beautiful fabric. My mom made most of our clothes when we were young. After I was married and had our first child I taught myself to make myself some dresses and then started sewing for my baby daughter.
My husband and I have been married for 27 years we have 4 children 2 daughters and 2 sons. Their ages are 23,21,19,17. I homeschooled all the children and still homeschooling our youngest daughter. When my oldest was still in high School we started working on a home course and teaching some of the different aspects of home economics classes. We decided to start a home business. My oldest daughter helps me by picking out the patterns and fabrics for the dresses and skirts and she also help run the shop and takes care of all the social media.”
Thank you so much Teresa and Jessica!
