Swarovski Crystals

Ohhh, shiny.

 

Now, normally I favor subtly pearl and vintage buttons over big sparkles of crystal.  These Swarovski crystals i just got might inspire me to change my toon (don’t fret, I’m not abandoning my rustic , earthy, vintage style entirely)… I’m just digging on some bling in addition to my former clean, matte aesthetic.

 

I have these crystals in Aurore Boreale (AB- rainbow shine), Citrine, Aquamarine, and Peridot.  They would be sweet scattered in one of my Flower-Bomb Headbands, on a Veil or Comb, or even sparkeling up some bouquet or garment.  

 

If used on a Veil, I would put them back-to back on both sides of the veil (to make sure the backsides don’t photograph like black dots).  Pass the Sparkle, please.

 

I might be blinded if I stare at them any longer! Seriously.

Lovin’ on The Farmhouse September 17, 2009

You know how after you’ve had a really long day all you can think about is a nice comforting dinner?  Maybe it’s something you grew up eating, something fresh and soul-soothing, something that takes you back to the sheer joy of tasting & allows all other thoughts on your mind to simply drift away.

Now, couple the bliss of satisfaction in sustenance with the responsibility of  supporting your local farmer & reducing the demand on the earth in food transportation and you’ll understand the reason behind The Farmhouse.

The Farmhouse is a new farm-to-table resteraunt in the Rivermarket. So Yummy!

Lezi Love September 3, 2009

The Wedding Hive Collaborative in conjunction with photographer Anne Grace staged this lesbian love photoshoot.

Our models Sara and Liza are a real couple.

Even though this was a ‘fake’ wedding, the emotion was very real.
