A Look Back to the Wedding: 1 Year ago

I thought it would be fitting to share with you some of our wedding details. We are coming up on our one year anniversary. I can honestly say that I think pinterest would have helped me in my wedding planning process, but nonetheless it was a great day that we will never forget!

Here are our Save the Dates. I ordered them from

I handmade all of our invitations. I used creamy cardstock, metallic paper, a gold flower stamp and gold text. The floral band was from Paper Source.

I also handmade our programs. I attached wooden fans to each one to help cool off our guests:)

Our guest book was also from Paper Source. 

Here is the Honeymoon Suite at Circle S. Ranch where we got married. It was a beautiful setting.

 We kept it simple with orange centerpieces.

My lovely cousin zipping me up!

I had this flower made by an etsy seller.

The bridesmaid dresses were from J. Crew and gold knotted necklace from Macy's.

The best little helpers!

He had to wipe his sweat off, off course!

It's official!

Now we are ready to party:)

Goodnight ya'll!


DIY Mirrored Furniture Anyone?

This was the easiest D&R project ever. Probably because all I had to do was drop off an old bathroom mirror at a glass cutting shop and have them cut it for me. I called to get a quote before I went and they said it would be $5 per piece ($15). Who knew it would cost $8 for each drilled hole ($24). Oh well, $42 later and this piece of children's furniture is as sophisticated as can be!



Ta daaa!

PS - I picked up some free wooden pallets today and I can't wait to show you what we have planned!


You would think I was throwing a baby shower...

Because I am! And today I wanted to share with you a few of my projects for this special day.

I have made 3 fabric pom poms:

35 Owl favor bags (that will soon be stuffed with yummy chocolates):

A baby name banner:

And one centerpiece:

More fun stuff to come, I promise!


My Decorating Agenda: 5.2.11

I have had some projects piling up in my head and this week I plan to check some of them off the list. 

First, I plan to take some old bathroom mirrors to a glass cutting shop to get cut. I saw this photo and realized that I have a few pieces of furniture that could use some pizzaz!

I have my eye on updating 2 of these...

And the colored panels in this piece...

I am very excited to get this project underway! 

My peonies are getting ready to bloom and I think I need some gorgeous vases to display them in. What could be easier than some glass bottles with a drop of paint? Apparently all you need to do to make this beauties is put a dollop of paint in the vessel and twist & turn it until it is completely coated!

I have yet to share this last project with my husband, so we will have to wait and see if it comes to fruition. I need a place to get comfortable out on our deck and if some free pallets show up on my local CL you can be sure I will be making one of these!

Have a great day:)
