About

224 Locust - a Brides to Babies Boutique

Welcome to 224 LOCUST!! I named my shop after my childhood home, where my creative fires were stoked.

There is a big ol' house with ten huge rooms and a giant staircase. Twenty four steps that thump thump on your bottom as you slide. Massive closets hiding passageways perfect for sneaking in the middle of the night. If you are not afraid of the dark and can navigate squeaky boards.
Time was well spent in this house as family. Everyone was there. Sitting in the window sill while the curtains blew out of the screenless squares. Summer breezes from one room...through your hair into the next. Watching the squirrels dance around the buckeye tree and dodging cars on the well laid brick street.
Other time was spent fostering creativity. Mother to child, passing down the intricate steps from generations past. And siblings encouraging each separate skill mastered by other's hands.
The house belongs to a new family now. Making their own memories no doubt. But with all of my childlike enthusiasm it will always be my....

<~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>
I am a wife, a mother, a brand new Grammy. A reader, an observer, a creator. All of my inspiration, perseverence, tenacity and passion come from my little inner circle that I call....FAMILY. I could not do what I do without them all. My very own mother is an amazing sounding board and I love bouncing product ideas off of her, not to mention she is the reason I am crafty. My husband is oh so helpful and supportive, from trekking over the countryside to pick up the perfect find to sitting patiently (I don't make him but it is better that way) in the car in the supply store parking lot while I browse. There is nothing under the sun that my two daughters are not willing to do to support their mama's passion. They run errands, pick up supplies, bring me treasures and shower love. Every one of them is a piece of the wonderful puzzle of my life.

I am always searching for that touchy-feel-good vintage fabric, or the one little yard that was left and didn't seem to fit anyone else's project or an already handcrafted strip of crocheted lace and I bring it home...into my studio to be new and rewarded as mine.

A dream has been in my head all of my adult life to "do what I love for a living". At some times I wasn't sure what that was, but I am confident I have found it. The fire is stoking, the wind is in my hair and I am not looking back!! Someday...someday.

The rest of the story is still being written.....

    I have always loved anything handmade and any materials that I could make something out of. As a child I looked at things differently...as in...what can I make out of that!?

  • Miss Riley

    Design Inspirator

    The newest member of 224 LOCUST team arrived in September. She will be the inspiration for so many of Grammy's creations, I am sure. But most of all I hope to pass on my love for all things handmade to her as she grows :)
