YAYYYY. Totally psyched to be headed to Chicago this weekend for my soon to be sister in law’s bridal shower!! I promise to take as many pictures of shower inspiration as humanly possible for everyone and to post them as soon as I get back.
Also- I’m hoping to get a chance to run over to one of my very favorite paper/crafting/stamping/generally awesome stores (that we don’t have here in the ‘D’) Paper Source to stock up and get supplies for Part 1 of the Bridesmaid’s Gifts! Which I have been STRESSING over, because I want to give them something just perfect. I would tell you all what I had planned, but I think that one of them reads the posts on this site (I am her bridesmaid as she is mine). I wouldn’t want to spoil things!
In the meantime, I’ve been scouring the internet for relatively inexpensive jewels for my wedding day. I have a necklace that I adore. I found an antique deep blue cameo at an antique fair last summer and had it made into a necklace. (Picture later, promise.) Now I need earrings- my pearls, sadly, have gotten discolored; so they’re out. A right hand ring might be nice. Drop earrings? I plan on wearing my hair up- but a low ‘up’. Bracelet maybe? I don’t usually wear bracelets, but it might be nice. I came across Viv & Ingrid. They have some seriously inexpensive- but completely beautiful pieces that I really like.
Can I live without these? Ummm, I’m not sure…
And AND!!! What about these precious bits for bridesmaids maybe?
Oh. One last thing. A picture of my ring. Since everyone else is writing about choosing rings and posting pictures of theirs. I thought I’d show you all mine- that I picked out myself and then told Pansy Dude… “I don’t want any other ring- this one ONLY”. Ahhh ha ha ha. I can be such snot. He sure puts up with a lot from me. There is something to be said for being a straight shooter though. I have the ring of my dreams.
Here is a website picture, because my camera blows.
