5 days & counting....

I am in full wedding mode! I am getting married in 5 days!
I just finished up my fabric flower boquet.
I made this boquet using sticks that my fianc├ęs boys & I
found on a walk one day as well as
scrap fabric that I had in my sewing room.

I found the DIY on pinterest but
changed it up a bit! I love how it turned out!
I am allergic to a lot of real flowers so
this boquet is cute, allergy friendly &
I will be able to keep it forever!

We have been saving spaghetti sauce tins for about
6 months now to use as vases for
the reception hall.
I will have real flowers in these. I simply hot glued
some of my scrap fabric to the tins & we ordered about
20 mixed boquets from Trader Joes.
I can't wait to see it all come together!

5 days & counting!!!!! :)

New skirts & baby Rosies!

I have been busy this week
sewing a new batch of baby Rosie
headbands! I love the prints in this set!
I did add a few inches to them per
requests from some of my
market customers! :)
I will be adding these to my etsy shop soon!
A sneak peek at a few of the wrap skirts
that I finished. I have
6 new skirts!

You will want to get to the market
early this week! I have a feeling they will
go fast. Come see me this Saturday at the downtown
Appleton market 8-12:30.
We are on Oneida st.
I will be off from the market next weekend!
I am getting married!!! Yay!

Have a great day! xoxo!

The wedding countdown has begun...

Our wedding is now less then two weeks away!
I have been working on some
last minute handmade
details.. like this
Mr. & Mrs. sign.
I found the template online
traced it, glittered it &
just need to add the ribbon for
our table or chairs! :)
This is both of our second marriages
so we are not asking for gifts,
 lets just just say
after combining two households we
had, HAD a lot of stuff. We are finally
comftorable with what we have
gotten rid of & what we have kept!
With that being said we decided to
make a simple card box
out of a vintage picnic basket to
add to our "picnic" theme, so guests
can drop a card in there if they wish.
The top was a bit rough so I
painted it with chalkboard paint.
(I will show some after pictures soon)

I decided to make some
simple pennant banners for
the chapel & the reception hall.
We have to set up &
tear down the same day so I want to keep
the decorations simple.

  Everything is almost ready.
We just have a few more little details to
finish! I can't wait to marry
my best friend! He really
is! I can't begin to tell you
how lucky I am!!
(below is my Mr's ring box!)

& last but not least! I am in full market
vending season!
Last Saturday was my busiest
day this summer!
Thank you to all of you for your support
& for allowing me to do what I love everyday!
I promise to be back to
posts about dainty daisies soon! :)

Have a great day! xoxo!

White bunting for our wedding!

Here is a view of the chapel
where we will be married next month!  ♥

I am hoping to make a whole
bunch of white bunting to hang from the ceiling
beams & then we will take them over
to the reception hall.
our photographer (& one of my very best friends)
is bringing her white ruffled backdrop as well.
I want everything to look very natural. 

I also want to make fabric covered tea lights
& the wood signs!
 The wedding is just
over a month away now, it
seems like we have so much to do..
I am getting so excited!!!!

Checkin' things off of our to do list for our wedding!

Our wedding is just a little
over 1 month away!
We are having a casual/family
picnic themed wedding but
still.. sooo much to do! ;)
We have been checking quite a few things off
of our to do list. We just ordered the
eco friendly wood silverware, paper straws
& table cloths!

    Who knew there were sooo many types
of gingham tablecloths. We settled for these!
We just have a few more things to do
& before we know it our wedding day will be here!
I can't wait!
