Greer Chicago


For those brides like me who want to jump on the vintage stamp bandwagon because the new $0.41 stamp choices STINK, Greer has the answer. They will stamp colorful hued envelopes with the perfect postage using vintage stamps and send it straight your way. It ain’t cheap, but may be worth it for busy brides who dont want to spend every waking moment hunting on Ebay.

Color Inspiration




Decor8 recently announced the winners of its Amy Butler inspiration board contest….1st place winner Starlee Matz came up with a great concept that would make not only a killer room but a killer color palette for a wedding. If I hadn’t already set my heart on green and white for my own wedding, then this would have been my second choice. Doing boards like these, (or in this case, a folder) can really help solidify a color palette and overall feel for your event…make it portable enough and you can even bring it along to vendor meetings to get your point across.

Purl

One more post before bed…I found this image on Purl‘s blog and just thought it was a great idea! Filling embroidery hoops with great fabrics and using them as art could work wonders at any party, or right in your home. I’ve been obsessed with having a photo-portrait area at my wedding at some point, and instead of just draping some fabric up against the wall, this could be a lot cuter….especially in my wedding colors of green and white. Purl was kind enough to include a tutorial, so here it is. In case you didn’t know, Purl is a great source for fabrics AND knitting supplies of every kind.

Little Birds


While visiting a friend in San Francisco last week, I popped into Doe SF to see what all the hype was about….its a fabulous store with wonderful little treasures, but what really caught my eye was the work of Stephanie Barnes. She makes beautiful stuffed flora and fauna, and I wanted to buy a few of the green mushrooms as decoration at my wedding (maybe on the guest book table), but unfortunately all were sold out already. I guess I’m going to have to stalk her etsy shop to find new ones….
