hunting and gathering....

I've been working on gathering things together for daughter #3 wedding in May. As you may remember from a previous post, I have a friend who is on a mission to find old rusty metal objects for me. I also have her hunting for galvanized metal containers as well, and mason jars. We will use the jars and containers for flowers and to hold programs etc..... right now my favorite one with the pansy label is holding the small burlap bags I've ordered for her favors, the bags will be filled with coffee beans ( both of them really enjoy their Joe).Lisa from sells some beautiful rustic tags @ her Etsy shop that I purchased to attach on the bags, I'll write something clever on the back with their name and date of the wedding(open to any suggestions here). I'ts time to kick it into high gear... I can't believe it is only 6 months dress shopping this weekend, fingers crossed she finds something she loves soon! I'm off to tie some tags.

dirt shirt....

I just returned from one of the seven wonders.... I was in Arizona visiting my Dad and I took the opportunity  to go to the Grand Canyon...I was not disappointed. We took the train from Williams and enjoyed the ride. I will never forget the first minute I laid eyes on it...breathtaking.... we trekked around for the afternoon and then took the train back to Williams. Oh yeah.... our train got robbed...

luckily we survived that and headed to Sedona the next morning... truly some of the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen. I wish I would have bought one of those dirt shirts as a souvenir.... well...maybe next time.

All geared up.....

I've been keeping my eyes open for rustic elements for my daughters wedding next Spring.
A friend found these @ a garage sale for me. How happy am I?! yes... perfectly rusty, rustic old iron gears.... just what every wedding needs right? Well... I think so.
Have a great weekend!

and so it begins....

 the days are getting shorter..... the temps. have finally relented.... you can spend hours in the garden without breaking a sweat.... and the pumkins have arrived. Yes, I am ready..... for the late afternoons that turn to cool evening on the patio....sipping wine, snuggling with a warm throw and enjoying conversation with H.H. in front of the fire. So it begins.... Autumn is finally here.
