Hello Ladies, hope you all are keeping cool! Sounds like just about everyone is still experiencing a heat wave, Michigan included! I am soooo looking forward to fall and cooler weather :)
Last night my youngest nephew got married, and it was such a beautiful wedding! The only bad thing (other than the blazing heat & humidity) was that my camera decided to die at the reception! I had taken a few pictures in the church during the ceremony and all was fine, then all of the sudden it went haywire! The screen was just a blur of pinkish purple! Phooey, what timing! Well, we did have the camera for 7-8 years, so I guess we got our share of use out of it. Luckily, my sister let me borrow her camera to take the following shots, and she them e-mailed them to me. What a lifesaver!
Anyway, the reception was outside under a large tent, and since the bride and groom are nature and outdoor lovers (like me!), the theme was a woodland setting. It was magical! The cake, which was covered in fondant, had the sweetest little deer topper. Not sure if you can see, but the buck has a little bow tie, and the doe has a little veil. Adorable!
This chandelier was even neater in person than in the pictures! An Ikea chandelier was adorned with antlers for a rustic-woodland meets shabby chic look!
I love this lemonade decanter.
Hubs picked up a new Cannon camera today, so once I figure out how to use it, I'll post all of the goodies I bought at "Michigan's longest garage sale" this weekend. Have a great day!
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
