I'm so ready for the weekend, how about you? We've had come crap cold weather this week with more on the way for Sunday. :( Oh well, maybe that will make me stick to my Spring Cleaning to do list.

Visit my sister, she's planning her wedding and has just picked out her flowers!

Aren't they lovely? That big rose in the middle is called "Fashion" and I just love it! I need a whole vase full. Mandi is looking for opinions on her choices and I know you guys are full of them. ;) Thank you for your advice on my store idea. It's appreciated!

Not much to report today but I wanted to show you my most recent hand made purchase. The Imagine Fairy by The Polka Dot Pixie:

Don't you just LOVE her?? I mean seriously, she is just wonderful. Her darling hat and wings come off (because she is playing pretend!):

I can't wait to have her in my hot little hands. She's a wee thing at only 4 1/2 inches tall but she's big on moxy, don't you think? When I was a girl I loved all things fantasy. Ever seen Labyrinth? (okay I loved all things David Bowie, too.) Well Jennifer Connolly's room in that movie was the room I wanted. Everywhere you looked there were princess crown, fairies, crystal balls . . . I was fascinated by it! Wouldn't this fairy be perfect in my childhood dream room? :)

Anyway, that's my babble for the day. I hope to have some new projects to share with you on Monday. Perhaps a finished rag rug . . . have a wonderful weekend!

Looks like your sister is having the exact same flower wedding as me. I had those roses and they are gorgeous. I got married last Sept 30th. And the orange lilies are my favorite. In the spring my mom went and picked wheat bundle and dried them on our basement. We used these as centerpieces with a wreath of flowers and candles underneath. So beautiful.

Um, who didn't want Jennifer Connolly's Labyrinth bedroom? It was super cool I always loved the display shelves she had for the stuffed animals. And you know I love the flowers :-) And I can't get over how great that flower pic turned out, yay!

Oh WOW! Those flowers are absolutely GORGEOUS!! Seriously, they took my breath away when the page opened. I love that color combination! They are going to be amazing!!

(PS I heart David Bowie, especially when he's wearing eyeliner. Which seems to be always.)
