Want of the Week

It was a last minute decision to throw a funeral themed Halloween party this year, so I didn't get a chance to look for the hair piece I wanted to go with my black mourning costume. But if I could have ordered one, it would have been one of these.

Filagree Custom Announcements

I did these announcements a few years ago (Pro-Bono) and thought I'd share. Upon removing the ribbon, the gate folded announcement opens up to show photos of the bride and groom along with wedding details.

Halloween Treats

I figure some of you might be doing some spooky entertaining this weekend. Here are a few Flickr photographs I rounded up of some fun cupcake ideas.

Want of the Week

Totally Cuuuuute. I'm loving this Louis XV Bergere chair from Etsy seller The Vintage Laundry's Shop. I think I would have a lot more pink in the house if I didn't have a hubby. . . . To check out other items in the shop click here.

What am I working on these days? Well . . . I'll give you a little teaser. Below are some photographs for wedding details from which I will base custom designed announcements. I am finalizing the design and will go to press in a few weeks. So check back soon to see what we came up with!

Purple for Mom

Since my mother's favorite color is purple and her birthday is coming up, I thought it would be fun to put together some pretty purple images for her and your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Victoria Pearson

Not only do I love magazines, but I also like following the links they list and resources/talent they've used. I noticed some images in the last M.S. Weddings and looked up the photographer—Victoria Pearson. What catches my eye is how much light is used in the photos. Click Here to see the portfolio.

Unazu Necklace: Want of the Week

Of course it depends on the style of the dress, but don't you think this is the perfect accessory for that little black outfit? (Or maybe a gorgeous yellow and gray . . . ) You can find it at the Unazu Etsy shop. Currently the owner is on vacation, but it still can't hurt to mark for later. Click Here.

Cupcakes for Fun

I had to make cupcakes for a scout group tonight and had some leftovers to decorate to my heart's content. I used the Cookie Master Plus to squeeze out these little cuties. (I took the easy road and used boxed cake and canned frosting.)


A friend of mine was looking for some cute bookends for her daughter's bedroom, so I did some searching and found these at Oompa Toys. What a fun idea. There are lots more animals to choose from, Click Here.
And although I do not have an affinity toward bookends, I did like these typewriters from Restoration Hardware and Alphabet bookends from Amazon . . . must be the designer in me.

Shopping: Tiny Meat

I don't normally carry a purse, which means all my cards get stuffed into my back pocket. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I stepped on my pants and bent ALL my cards. Arg. So . . . I stopped eyeballing Tiny Meat's store, and went ahead and bought this cute little wallet. Click Here to visit the shop.
