Eye Candy to Brighten Your Monday

Sooner than I thought - a second wedding post!

As I seemed to be on a roll at the weekend, I carried on looking at wedding bits and pieces, this time with my sister in law in mind - who is also getting married next year! I dont know what the happy couple's current thinking is venue wise, but when we last spoke she had been dreaming of doing the whole spring or summer/converted barn thing. So I had a scout around for ideas that might compliment that.

Heres what I came up with:

I have to confess that I love the use of unusual materials for button holes - especially this use of corn and wheat. I made the ones at our wedding from material, thistles and pheasant feathers which looked awesome! I seem to have a bit of thing for bunting too! The pictures in here remind me of village fairs at the height of summer and I had to include the little flag stirrers again - they are super cute! And dont you just love those pinwheel type things? Or is that just me? I'll have to try making some when I get the chance - they'd be great for a kids party and would give a wedding a lovely fun whimsical feel...

...Thinking about it, I'm not quite sure 'whimsical' is what my sister in law is going to be looking for, but posting just now has cheered up my monday morning no end so its all good.

As a little aside - congrats to me for finally finding a picture tool that let me collage photos together. I had been wondering how the hell everyone else did it!

In case you are still in the dark too - my way of making collages is to use Picassa. Its a great little photo viewing/ editing tool, its free and if you go to 'create' you will find the 'collage' tool - which will help you create your own multi-pictured extravaganzas. Awesome!

Have a good week!
