Making Theirs Yours

While searching for economical ways to make Cali’s June wedding unique, I purchased many handcrafted items from Etsy. Etsy is a website for buying and selling all things handmade. There are amazing artists and crafters with very unique items available. Here are a few items we used: bridal veil, pearl hair clip, flower girl necklace, grandbaby's tie (it was custom made to his measurement and closely matched the groomsmen.) More Etsy finds from me later.

An apple a day...

Enjoying fall with it's bountiful healthy harvest...
simply core out an apple and fill with
butter, brown sugar, raisins, pecans. Bake til soft and you will probably lick the bowl... that part will not keep the doctor away!

Since the demise of both Domino and Blueprint magazines, my daughter Cali (age 22) and myself (ahem) have been hoping a replacement would come along to again inspire us in home decorating with a modern eclectic bent, entertaining, cool clothes, etc. etc. I found LONNY which is an online magazine that has some really amazing features. I am too tactile to want to read a magazine online but this will have to do. If you have babies, are just out of school or are at the ahem age, it is inspiring. Check it out.
