Festoons & Flourishes

Last night, I got to have my first dinner on the deck of the year with Mom and Dad.

Early spring makes this girl very happy. πŸ™‚

I don’t have anything terribly exciting to report today. I’m working at home, tackling the mountain of laundry I’ve let pile up over the last 2 weeks (oops), and trying to decide when to see The Hunger Games this weekend. I feel like a super nerd for being this excited about a movie–especially one based on a young adult book series. But whatever. Apparently, I’m a 14 year old girl at heart. πŸ™‚

If you have a moment or two today, take a look at my gorgeous and talented friend Ashley’s new Etsy site–Festoons & Flourishes.

Especially if you have a wedding coming up, you’re going to want to take a look! I’ve seen all of these pieces in person, and they are stunning! I love the bow bouquets, too! What a sweet keepsake of your wedding!

Bow bouquet

Much more attractive than the bows in the paper plate, dontcha think??? πŸ˜€ Plus, Ash is completely awesome to work with and would make you pretty much anything you could imagine! Check her out!

Have a great weekend!!!

  1. So when we meet, I will rap for you, but you have to cook for me. I don’t much like Brussels sprouts, but the ones you’ve pictured above look amazing.

    And really, we’re all 14 years old at heart. I still have a mini crush on Zach Morris and I spent all last summer salivating over the Harry Potter series. So what if I’m living in 1991 and 2004, respectively?
