Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! This is by far my favorite holiday when it comes to creating Art. All of the pinks and reds. Vintage laces and romantic,vintage, paris themes.

The girls and I started out our day with these adorable heart sprinkled cupcakes from the bakery. When we got home from grocery shopping, and while we were putting the groceries away. There was a knock at the door. It was a delivery man with a delivery of lillies, a teddy bear, bath salts and a box of chocolates. Thanks to my sweet husband.

and we finished off our Valentine's Day at Our favorite antique/ handmade home decor boutique called Willow Lake. The owner Eileen created an irresistable collection of delicious goodies! You can "like" her shop on Facebook to see gorgeous vignettes that are ever changing in her store here...

Hope you all had an absolutely lovely Valentine's Day!

Handmade Wedding Invites

For an Etsy order this Summer a bride asked me for the first time to create wedding invitations.
I'd never done this before so I made her up a sample with coffee dyed background and cream cardstock on the front. Then sewed them together with some soft pink seam binding frills.I threw in with the order a gorgeous embellished Guest Book and she chose to order corespondence tag cards as well. The turnout was so pretty it inspired me to use these colors in my other areas of work such as garlands, roses and trim tags.

Indoor Picnic

Today my girls and I had a fantastic girly day of shopping and decided to have lunch with an indoor picnic at home. We got out the fancy picnic wear and set up their lunches with the windows open and some pretty lanterns.All of their stuffed animals were even invited and had a fancy tea party picnic :)
Life is good when life is simple!
