I know it's been a while...
I've been busy working, just haven't been blogging much
lately. My heart just hasn't been in it. Some of you know,
my Grandmother, my mentor, has been in very poor
health. I had a little reminder this morning, of how
visiting with my blogging friends can lift my spirits,
remind me of what is important, and inspire me.
Thank you Mrs. Magpie. Now, there is a Lady
that appreciates a properly set table!
With that in mind, I'll share a few little projects I've worked on
lately. When it comes to weddings, every little detail counts.
Right down to the napkins. With wedding favors in little
picket fence themed baskets, place card holders in the form
of topiaries with little birds, and woodland centerpieces, Kim
wanted her cloth napkins to add that final finishing touch.
So I helped her to find just the right fabric,
(little love birds in a swing) and rushed
these out to California in time for the wedding.
I am every bit as proud of my little projects, like this,
as I am of the larger projects that I work on.
Some of you know that when I'm not working on my
upholstery projects, window treatments, or quilts, I make
cloth napkins for my etsy shop. Cloth napkins are such a
simple thing, but something I believe in. I would never
serve a meal with paper towels, paper plates, or plastic
from Massachusettes. Her wedding was held in
a Historical Inn. The bouquets and centerpieces
were bright and beautiful mixed flowers.
The napkins were bright mixed prints.
Every detail counts!
Maybe a reminder of yesteryear...
A beckoning to the country, down a little dirt road,
away from the hustle and bustle...
to a place of quiet and serenity,
and a paring down.
Getting back to simplicity,
Getting back to simplicity,
and to the things that are truly the most important.
If I had a dream wedding...
it would be just like this one.
a wedding is NOT about the huge production,
NOT about the Grand Cathedral,
NOT about the huge reception hall,
NOT about limousines and grand processions.
a man and a woman...
and a promise to each other.
Thank you Gretchen for choosing me to add the finishing
touches to your perfect wedding day!
For this project, I made the extra long, extra wide muslin drapes,
for the barn doors. Inside the barn, there were haybales for
seating. I made covers for the haybales in yellow and brown
to match the sunflowers held by the bride and bridesmaids.
The reception was held outdoors. The tables were covered with
long white tablecloths, the haybales were covered with red
cotton covers, tied on the corners, and old fashioned
red and white gingham napkins.
If you're looking for just the
right finishing touches for your wedding, be it tablecloths,
barn door drapes, burlap table runners,
or cloth napkins...
I can help!
