after last week's heavy family posts, i thought a little merriment might be in order.
(shoes often looks at my love of antiques with bewilderment. once he asked me if i was trying to turn our future home into a haunted house. i'm not. but it's not funny how much i seriously love antiques. and also. in driving around portland to look for the following, i saw a woman getting arrested and a drug deal. it was a very full day.)
the wedding vision is a little difficult to explain, so just a few hints ...
This cutie is going near the guest book. She'll be a little dolled up with accompanying burlap, lace and other assorted pretties.

happy wedding season!
