ummm, goodies...............

The goods from our trip to town yesterday! Ah, how I wish I had time to create instead of prepare for the Turkey dinner! I got lots of homespun fabrics, finally! And I found these packages of vintage looking rhinestones, really excited to use them! I am just chomping at the bit to make some more felted ornaments, tags and what- nots!

the flowers- best i have ever seen at a wedding- the color combination was amazing
the cake- oh the spongy white cake with the blackberry filling and rich buttery creamy frosting- sigh.
the dress- she looked like she was floating in that dress- beautiful.
the music- omg i had to be pried away! i was having sooooo much fun dancing with everyone (;
the bride- shining like the beautiful star she is.
wonderful wedding!
i was so so happy to be a part of this - thank you."

Fun stuff just listed on my etsy!

I love these new things I just made for my Etsy store! So much fun! The pictures don't do them justice.... The Snowbird ornament is made from a vintage wool sweater I felted and cut from my own pattern then stuffed and decorated! SOOO cute! And the altered 1 qt. paint can (never been used) I decorated with beautiful papers, a handcut bird pattern, iridescent snowflake paper, bells and I braided a rustic wire handle for the can giving it a truly rustic charm feel! I also included a whimsical little matching tag! Check them out at my Etsy store for more detailed photos!

more of wedding.....

I have to show the beautiful fall decorations that we used for the wedding! I scored when I bought everything for 70% off last january! We also made really fun sparkly crystal flower lanterns to hang in the big oak tree at the ceremony site. Big Guy wasn't too happy about hanging all of them but Jas was quite a task master!

The beautiful flowers were the most striking fall color combination I have ever seen! Exquisite and I thank Clara for that!

The cakes were to die for and Lily decorated all her tables so wonderfully! The inside of the barn was rustic, perfect for the BBQ, and the big wooden dance floor was so fun to dance on!

It was perfect!!!!

The Wedding of the Year!

Our amateur photos of Lily's wedding day! Lily and Shawn, me and Camille, me and Lily , my beautiful family, Daddy and Lily, her dress, and Daddy walking Lily down the isle!! What a beautiful day and I SURVIVED it! Whew! It was just an awesome, fun day! We had the old barn at Pacifica in Williams Ore, (the old Steve Miller Band Ranch) decorated with all fall decor, sooo pretty! We had a big catered BBQ and THE most delicious cakes from Apple Cellar Bakery (Ashland Ore) Raspberry Poppyseed, Fresh Blackberry Vanilla Genoise and Hazelnut Chocolate Torte! So delish and the flower lady, Clara , decorated them gorgeous! The big dance floor was rockin' with the DJ playing lots of fun music as the champagne flowed! It was an incredible amount of work and planning. I could not have done it without all the help I received from my wonderful friends and family! I love you guys!!

30 years!!

Celebrating 30 years together!!!

oooo, it's that time again.."end of school" tea party!!

Jasmine is very quick to remind me that it's time for my famous "end-of-the-school-year" Tea Party! Since we just moved her back home, from her year in the dorms, I guess she is right! So, I was looking thru photos and wanted to post pictures of last years Tea!! Num, num! Menu for this year will be something like this: I want to try those little Pillbury Savories, make some Strawberry Cupcakes from Martha's new Cupcake cookbook, make homemade Bon-Bon's again, Tea Sandwiches (of course) and whatever else I can think up!!!! OH! And PG Tipps Tea!

i'll admit.....

so i am obsessed! ok? i'll admit. 5 days i obsessed over this lilac ribbon i picked up on a craft shopping spree. i had only purchased 5 yards. i got home and made the card with it and loved the color! so, i obsessed about it until i finally talked myself into driving, the 45 minutes it takes to get to the bigger town with craft stores, to get more! well, i get there and i can't find it! OMG! i panicked. i searched for 10 minutes then, lo n' behold, i found it buried under other spools, in with the navy blues! so i found that, and more as you can see, i am an addict. the poor store clerk, that had to measure and cut the ribbon for me, asked me if it was for a wedding? she thought she remembered me from the other day. i said oh, no. she asked well, then what was i going to do with it? i said, well, um, i just.....i just like it, i collect ribbon! lol! i ended up purchasing the whole pile of ribbons. now i will get busy and make the cards for etsy!

Easter Baskets!

I got up this morning and frantically put my three Easter baskets together! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! I made the three bunny tags yesterday after being inspired at The Mulberry Tree in town. Super cute gift shop! I love! They took me a few hours to create, then put together. I think the girls will love them. Lily and the finance are going to come out later for dinner. I decided to make a big spaghetti dinner, garlic bread, green salad and Brown Sugar Strawberry shortcakes for dessert! Yummers! Jas asked me "You mean you aren't going to have meat?" I said, "What do you mean? There is meat in the spaghetti sauce." She replied, "You know, a piece of meat, like turkey, ham or a roast?" I said "No, not this time. We are going to go UNtraditional, and easy this year!" Well, as easy as a big dinner can be! Pics are of the three easter baskets and of course as I was photographing them Zoe decided to run up the oak tree for attention! Then ignored me! Hmmm, I wonder if she is still up there.........................Happy Easter all!

Her current treasury is Add Spring To Your Hop and is the top photo here. It is just so beautiful and pleasing to the eye! Way to go Jas! I am so proud of you! My current treasury is the second picture and called called PerkUP! . You can almost smell the coffee aroma just looking at it! Fun stuff and amazing artist's!
