What We Have

In Central New York and all over New York really, is gorgeous rolling hills, changing leaves, and loads of farms! Pumpkin Farms, Apple Farms, beautiful places for fall weddings. I was too impatient to wait to get married in the fall but if I were to do it again, I am adoring the idea of a fall afternoon in a pumpkin patch. You can read the local story here


Cathy Waterman Rings

Are these stunning, or are these stunning? 
I going to use the expression jaw dropping, because frankly my mouth fell wide open when I came across these Cathy Waterman beauties.  I am not a huge jewelry gal but these rings, besides the price tag, totally do it for me! Great find Alyson!

over the weekend

This weekend was so busy with a shower, a bachelorette in one town and a trip to NJ to follow! I was in charge of decorations for the shower, and was so excited to try some DIY's I've been dying to get my hands on.  The famous tissue poms  were so exciting to make because I have been waiting for an occasion to try them. Literally the easiest, quick project I have tried for such a flawless pretty result! For the favors I made a cookie in a jar recipe and tied custom designed hang tags with the baking directions. Lastly I had a lot of left over fabric from the jar tops so I made up some no sew garland which I will have a DIY instructions for later in the week! So fun I hope everyone had a great holiday for those of you in the US, and to everyone else I hope you had a great weekend.
