Happy Friday!!

Today may be my last day at White Water. And I say may since my last day was already supposed to be a couple weeks ago- but if they need me it's no big deal. But as I was saying- today may be my last day. Then we're going to a Housewarming Party tonight and I'll of course be garage saling tomorrow morning. And then 24 hours from now- I'll be back to working on my etsy flowers... which I love. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you on Monday! Image via Jagger Photography

Meet Lindsay...

Today I have a gorgeous east coast wedding to show you. Check out the beautiful bride and her new husband pictured below.

I first started talking with Lindsay back in February when she was looking for floral fascinators for her 6 bridesmaids. She decided on doing a spin off of the Grace II, replacing the large faux diamond pendant with an extra large single pearl.
After a couple months had passed, I was pleasantly surprised to see that she wanted one for herself as well, but slightly different, so we left the diamond center in hers.
And then after a few more months, I heard from her again- but this time with pictures from her beautiful wedding! And I couldn't wait to share them all with you. The theme, colors, everything is gorgeous! Just see for yourself.

Lindsay and Dave were married in beautiful Martha's Vineyard Martha's Vineyard was also the theme for the wedding. Lindsay incorporated the theme throughout all of the details. You can see them in everything from the seersucker ring bearer's jacket to the deep blue of the bridesmaids dresses to the abundant hydrangeas everywhere.

Lindsay said that they wanted their guests to, "leave the island knowing why we love it visit it so much."They also incorporated their theme into the table numbers. Chelsey Brennen over at Fourth & Folded did an outstanding job creating these perfectly themed table numbers for them.Lindsay and Dave have been together for 5 years and currently live in Manhattan. Lindsay told me that Dave proposed back in 2009 while they were taking their pup Riley (pictured below) on a stroll through Central Park. Isn't he so cute?!And here is Lindsay and Dave on their honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands. And she's still getting use out of her hair flower! Lindsay told me it was a great way to tame her ocean hair :) as well as a sweet reminder of the wedding. She also said her bridesmaids are still using theirs as well! On everything from canvas bags to pinning them on their cotton jackets. I love it!Getting to know Lindsay (she's super sweet and awesome at communication!) and seeing how her big day came together has been such a wonderful experience. Thanks again Lindsay!

Driving to Target

Driving to Target has become a much different experience. Before, I hopped in the car, contemplated which of the 3 I could get to with the least amount of traffic on the way back, and then was there in about 10- 15 minutes.

Now, the nearest one is much, much further away (2 hours to be exact) but the drive is gorgeous. And although I always forget my camera- this time, I brought it a long and had myself a little photography fun along the way.

Up Tomorrow: A Beautiful East Coast Wedding!

Can I seriously have a little baby to buy these for? These hats from etsy seller Sweetpeatoadtots are so incredibly cute!!! They'd make great baby shower gifts too.

My Morning View

This morning I woke up to this...After an incredibly busy week with work, preparing for an out of town friend arriving tomorrow, as well as feeling under the weather- the week was starting to overwhelm me. So Danny came up with the brilliant idea of going on a spur of the moment camping trip last night. It was already 8pm when he thought of the idea.... and he had to work at 9 this morning- but we thought after a busy week of not really seeing each other that it would be nice to just get out of the house.

So we loaded up Maverick and our camping gear, dressed in an insane amount of layers and fleece (very sexy), and headed out to a spot about 25 minutes north of town.

And I feel totally refreshed. That little trip did wonders for my energy... and I still smell like campfire mmmmmm....

A Fun Day of Mail

I Love Mail. Letters, Magazines, Catalogs, bills... eh... I can I do without the bills- but it's still a nice reminder that I have things like shelter, electricty, tv, etc...

Well anyways, if I Love mail- you can imagine how I feel about packages. And a couple days ago- it felt like Christmas.

Because 1) My very anticipated custom stamp arrived with the Silver Pencils logo- I can't wait to start using this on all my of outgoing packages!
Secondly, my package of Japanese masking tape arrived! I use these pretty little darlings on everything.
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, UPS dropped off these two spools of baker's twine.
All of these will be used for packaging up outgoing Silver Pencils products and I cannot wait to use them!

Do you have a crazy love for mail too?
