Ice Cream-----LOVE

What did you say? Whatever it was, it will have to wait-- we are eating ice cream!

Chocolate Chip Mint is the best! yes, it is!


Wow! This must be the best ice cream on Earth!

I love it when you get shots like this one. My boys are so cute!

Vintage collars become wedding signs...and they are so sweet!

Wee brown mushrooms, velvet flowers, moss, and a touch of embroidery (for a bit of romance) make up these fun wedding signs.

This little threesome is hanging in my studio at the moment, but their dream is to be invited to lovely vintage wedding. There are only two more of these collars left, and I think it would be cute to put bird nests in them. What else would be fun to add with the birds' nests?

My sweet jello tins, aren't they great for holding supplies?
