It’s True!

We work well under pressure!  We have accomplished soooo much since last Friday! 

First, let me say that I never knew what i was missing.


These little stamps from Martha Stewart are just toooo great!  I’ve stood in front of the display at Michaels I don’t know how many times and never even considered buying one.  Until I visited lalalaurie.  I am in love with her work. 

We completed our little hankie covered luminaries.

Little birdies on all of the handles.  And just WAIT until you see the vintage garden piece they’ll be hanging on.

We found a super cute ornament at Christmas at Hobby Lobby.  But it was so small that it needed something……..

I surprised Heather with this, yesterday afternoon……..

The round base is the lid from a coffee container.  I glued it to a brown and white petite coffee cup for the base.  She loved it!

This little guy is presently living on our vintage tea cart that we purchased last week.

The Bride’s Bouquet!!!!!!!

We wanted a bouquet made entirely of vintage brooches.  That didn’t happen.  Too expensive.  Too hard to find.  So here’s what we came up with……enjoy! 



With the exception of 2 or 3, all of the flowers are handmade.  By us and all of our wonderful friends who joined us Friday evening.  A work of love!

The Maid of Honor Bouquet

wedding 025

I made these little cones yesterday afternoon.  One for the bride.  One for the groom.  His little blue bird flew the coop!  He’s loose somewhere in the house! ;)

Hope you love it all as much as we do!  We’ll have more to come later in the week.
