The Perfect Light of Day

There is this certain time of day that I just love in our home.  In the summer, it falls right about 5:30-ish. The sun is at just the right place in the sky and it shines straight through our front door and makes the whole room glow.

I love plopping down on the couch at that moment and just taking a breather. It's kinda my thinking time.  I love how God blesses us with still, quiet moment like these.

Here is how the light hit the leftover wedding flowers I was enjoying.  So cheery!

I read a verse this week from Proverbs that I tried to dwell on.  It's Proverbs 14:30. "A heart at peace gives life to the body"

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Find some rest and allow Him to give you peace!

Finished Wedding Hair Piece

Here is another detail of my sis-in-law's wedding.  Her finished hair piece.  She was SUCH a beautiful bride.  I was so happy I was able to be a part of it all.  Thanks Em.

It was so simple to make.

All you need is:

1. A vintage broach
2. Fabric (ribbon, tulle, etc)
3. An alligator clip
4. A hot glue gun

May Has Come & Gone

I can't believe May is almost over!  This has been one crazy month. From funerals to weddings...there has been lots to occupy my time.

My Grandma passed away this month.  Dealing with her loss was hard for everyone. We didn't get to see her super often, but it didn't make her death any easier. You know how sometimes you don't know what you have until it's gone?  Well that's how I felt... I think how lots of us felt. Death has a way of making us all appreciate life so much more.  It has made me appreciate the relationships I do have now.  Life is so short.  I do know one thing... GOD IS GOOD.  He took her peacefully.  It could have been so much harder for her.

On a happier note...My sis and brother in law had their big wedding reception last weekend.  It was so much fun!  It was a busy month planning for all the details for that.  I love love love getting to help with things like that.  I love being able to put the talents God has given me into practice.  It is such a joy.

I have so many photos and ideas to share with you!  It's been too long.

I'll start with sharing some pics from the hairpiece I made for the bride. She loves vintage things and broaches. I found this broach at a flea market and decided to spruced it up.

I'll show the final piece tomorrow!  It was so much fun working on.  Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.  Have a great day.

Jade & Rich Teal Pom Pillow

This week has FLOWN by!  It's crazy. I guess we have been really busy lately.  It seems like as soon as one thing slows down another picks up.  I'm thankful though for all the opportunities we have.

I've been working more on my pillows. Lots and lots of work to do. I went to the fabric store this week to pick up a few pieces I was lacking, and of course, I found one more combo for a pillow that I just couldn't pass up.

It's going to be rich and fun all at the same time.  The colors and textures are going to be so pretty together.

Hope you like!  Can't wait to get these all up on my site and let you see them all!

Have a great weekend!
