Thyme of Grace Cafe, South Bend, Indiana

For those of you who live in the South Bend/Mishawaka area I want to introduce you to a really cool place to have lunch. Thyme of Grace used to be located downtown Mishawaka, but relocated to the River Park area in South Bend. It is a wonderful place to enjoy lunch away from all the hustle and bustle of Grape Road.
Michelle, the owner has done a wonderful job in creating a very comfortable and quaint atmosphere. Her food is yummy and delicious!
She also does catering so keep her in mind for your next event. She also rents out her restaurant for small parties and it would be excellent for a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, baby shower, birthday party, any small event that you want an intimate cozy atmosphere.
Give her a try, I know you will be glad you did!

Sammy's Dog Coat

Some of you may be aware that Designer, Ginny Schumacher of Designs by Ginny does more than just invitations. She has an unique blend of talents. One of her talents is that she is an accomplished seamstress. Being a dog lover, she has created several very creative dog coats. Below is one she created for Sammy, a Cavalier King Charles, owned by one of New York's premier event designers, David Monn. To keep in the spirit of fun, Ginny also made a matching scarf for David.

Custom Styrofoam Dog Bones & Dog Paws & Custom Dog Paw Notecard

Designs by Ginny is always creating something new.
Below are styrofoam cutouts of a dog bone and dog paw that are being used for a 13th Birthday - Bat Mitzvah party. This young girl decided to make her special day also a special day for Theraputic Service Dogs and turned her party into a fund raiser. These stryofoam cutout are being used to hold suckers. Her color scheme is hot pink and tiffany blue. It is hard to tell in these pictures but the cutouts were also covered with a white glitter to give them some extra pizzazz.

In celebration of this little girls gift of kindness to animals, Designs by Ginny created a custom notecard for her with a cutout of a dog paw and her initial cutout in the center of the paw. In keeping with her color theme the initial cutout is backed with a pink cardstock. The actual notecard is watermarked with the words, " A note from Rachel" printed in the tiffany blue color.
The paw cutout is also mounted giving it a 3D dimensional look.
