Emerging from the forest...

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE living in my dark little forest, which feels slightly enchanted, and slightly like it's going to eat me in weeds and vines at any given moment.  But since summer's arrival seems to be waiting on just the perfect spell, prayer, wish, tribal dance or combination of the previous, I love this light-filled airy abode.  Until some sun arrives for longer than an hour, I'm going to dream about sun-bleached floors, a sloped glass ceiling, and floating high above the trees in the loft of my dreams.

Real Weddings: Katie + Casey

A few of my bad snaps before I get professional pics back...I just got home from the best weekend--San Juan Island, the beautiful old Roche Harbor Resort, a great partner (Katy of Unveiled Events), a super bride and groom (I could just kill myself for not getting a single shot of Katie and Casey!  Or the dress!  More to come, I promise), a beautiful crystal chandelier we hung, burlap and twine everywhere, the debut of my copperplate calligraphy I've been learning (still a long way to go, but I think the escort cards turned out pretty!), turquoise glass and lace covered hurricanes, and the most fragrant, creamy white peonies ever.  Enjoy!

(#40) Just a glimpse...

Love this eclectic, vintage table number idea.  Designsgirl used a sweet vintage candlestick, along with little snippets of ribbon and greenery (oh, and a bit of her lovely calligraphy too!) to make this pretty, pretty table number.  Spring is the perfect time to scour the weekend yard sales that pop up everywhere for sweet little candlesticks.
