More Wedding Plans

Things are coming along with The Wedding Plans.

This is the prototype for the Centerpiece for the tables.


Sand topped with shells and sea glass on the bottom.
Some greens and a white orchid come up and out the top of the vase.
These will be placed on top of a shell inspired disc that will have sand and shells surrounding it.

This will become the Wedding Card Box.


I wanted to show this wonderful memory box Tanya made.

Remember how I told you the way Brandon proposed,
well, she took all the items used for the proposal and made this Memory Box.


The red ribbon, the cards with stances on them,
the rubber duckie, and ring (not "The Ring",but a stand in),

Sweeeet!!

Fertilizer Friday ~ The Whites

I'm joining Tootsie over at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday!


While wandering the garden looking for some inspiration for today,
 I discovered the 'whites' had taken center stage.

Garlic Chives ready to burst into flower


Love their little clusters of star shapes.



Then there were the Feverfew in full bloom.


Such happy daisy like flower bunches.


The UFO (Unidentified Flower Object) from last weeks post.


Not quite fully open yet.


This little yellow Baby Rose jumped up and said
"me, me!"



Not much happening in the garden these days.
We're between the first and second big push,
at the 'rest stop' before the second wave hits.
Hoping for more to show next week.
☺☺

Etsy Treasury

This has been so fun!
I've been included in 2 different Etsy Treasuries in the last two days!
It's so exciting for someone to chose one of your items from ALL of the wonderful things on Etsy.

Yesterday my Rose Heart was chosen by
Purple Platypus for the Wedding Bells Are Ringing Treasury she made.
Thank you Chantal!



Today my Caramel Apples were chosen by Ageless Things 
for the Autumn Country Style Treasury she put together.
Thank you Edyie!

We Have A Dress!!

Melissa and I were invited to go along with Tanya,
her Mom and some of the Bridesmaids to look for her Wedding Dress.
They had been to several places earlier in the week.
BUT I was lucky enough to be there when she found the ONE!

It is beautiful and she looks amazing in it!
Sorry no photos :(
Just in case my Son pops in,
can't let him see, you know!

We also looked at Bridesmaid Dresses.
One favorite was tried on.

Tanya and Tab


Stephanie


Melissa and Linda (Tanya's Mom)


The Shawl was fiddled with to create a cute
design.




We may have not found the Bridesmaids Dresses,

BUT we have the COLORS!!

Pool and Pichachio ☺

Pretty!


One small step for the family, 
one huge step for the Bride!
LOL

Love ya Tanya!

I'm joining Linda over at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!
Pop over and see what everyone's found.

I didn't get a chance to hit any yard sales over the weekend but did get a chance to stop in our local Consignment Shop.

I found this little lady for $2.50.


Isn't she adorable?!
I can't wait to put some little posies in it.

She even has little openings on the sides.


I initially got her to put in my Etsy Shop.
But I have fallen for her so she will be staying here.
☺☺☺☺
