The dresses arrived today and I gotta say they are crazy, wacky and totally beautiful. Yes, together they definitely look like a kid threw up after eating a bunch of dinner mints. Isn't that what I was going for though? Just kidding. These are perfect! I think my Maids of Honor will love them!

In other news...Sarah has been working on my dress and the next step is getting the fabric! I can't waiiiit.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello hello,

I've been experimenting more with the jars I showed in the previous previous post. I made a lot more and I tried a little something with the sheets of thin tin I found.

What do you think?

So we meet again

Hellowww friends,

I took the dress I got off of ebay and cut along the dotted (trimmed) lines and shortened the underlying layers and it became:

which is just the cutest dress I've seen in a while. It's really itchy and I can't stand to be in it for more than 5 minutes, but I'm working on that. The sides come up on both sides to reveal the under layers. I think the under layers can be shortened just a tad still. I think this will work for my #2 dress. That sounds ridiculous, but when you see the beautiful dress Sarah is making me, you'll see why I want an option to get crazy in later (to avoid ruining the beauty that is my #1). Think of it as my white wedding suit!

That's all for now. I still want to show you the special items we found while enjoying our trip through oldsville weekend before last. Please excuse the cheeky smile...I'm trying to smile more!

You know it,

Some things I wanted to show you

Hey hey hey hey ehey ehey hey ehey! I had a pretty productive day in the ol' weddin' department. I found some super cute old carnival/circus inspired flower girl dresses (click to see glittery detail):

Next, I went to the fabric store and got some lace and spray paint for my jam jars I've been saving up to put candles in and hang from the trees outside:

More to come! Pam and Jon visited us this last weekend for the Vintage Paper Fair and the Alameda Flea Market. We all found some pretty amazing stuff and I can't wait to show it to you. It sure was a nice time.

One parting gift for you:
