Sweet little etsy shop!

This cute little shop I found on my twitter etsy thread the other day. She has a cute shop. I think here sachets are simply perfect for wedding gifts, baby shower gifts spa day packs for friends the gift giving option for these little beauties are endless. So take a moment and check out for that unique little something you’ve been looking for.
I have asked to send me a small bio about her and this is what she had to say. ”Years ago I wanted to open a little Bed and bath Boutique with beautiful things...My mother was lending a big helping hand in that direction, when she became ill and passed just 2 months later..I felt at the time I had to find a name for my shop and do this. Not being able to sleep, one early morning it hit me. Cleo Rose. My mother’s name was Rose and It was Cleo. She never liked the name "Cleo" so she did not use it. I was grown with children of my own before I knew this was her name. My aunt slipped, my mother got upset and I laughed and teased her for a long time. In addition, I think it was my mother who one early morning had helped me with this name. I could imagine her saying, “if it is good enough to tease me, then it is good enough to be your shop name". LOl The rest of the Cleo Rose Name for the shop I won't reveal. I was making designer pillows, but it cost a lot. All talent came from my mother and I give her total credit. The sachets came about from a sachet I gave to my mother many yrs ago. I sketched some ideas out. Some are still living just on the sketches for the moment. I tried hard to copy her silk flowers she made but I just did not quite have her talent. I finally, d├ębuted them on Valentine’s Day 2003 and they were an absolute hit. I was busy for the 3 days prior to Valentine’s Day, It was crazy but exciting!!


I am still working on getting my shop filled and working on new designs as well!!”
