Thank you August Empress for my beautiful new banner and background! I’m a little late getting the 411 but have made up for lost time by pasting August Empress designs all over my web space. I adore this blog about blogs for the color palette soothes my eyes and the sweet use of watercolor paints brings back happy childhood memories.

Check out August Empress and be sure to say thanks if you snag something for yourself! Leave a comment below if you do, I would love to see how everyone uses these pretty pretty prints.

Cheers to the start of a new week in the new year. Hip Hip……


Rockabilly Yacht Wedding

Hello there. Beginning with a small post of my first experience representing myself as a wedding vendor. Lucky for me it was the wedding of friends and former coworkers. (I used to sell pizza with the bride and groom! No lie!)

The ceremony and reception took place on a handsome yacht owned by Commodore Cruises that took us on a 4 hour cruise around the San Francisco Bay. The even handsomer couple were specifically going for a vintage rocker, Vegas-y themed wedding. Black, white and rockabilly decorated the yacht. I love it in contrast with the shiny brass and nauticalness of the setting.  Fun fact: the DJ was a 1950s housewife in kid gloves who spun 7 inch records with all the old hits. “Brand New Key” anyone? The groom painted 60 vases white and the bride collected all the wedding decor. She also chose all of the flowers herself at the San Francisco Flower Market.

The views were amazing and it was breathtaking to experience San Francisco aboard such a beautiful vessel. I want to thank Fred and Kristin for allowing me to be a part of their wedding day. It was over much too soon. I just hope they ask me to do the flowers for their 50th wedding anniversary.
