Tease III- Organic Ring Pillows November 12, 2009

Organic Ring Pillow 3

Organic Pillow 6

Organic Pillow 9

Say I DO ( I cannot resist the occasional overdone wedding pun) to Ring Bearer Pillows that you can REUSE as throws in your home.  They all have ties for rings- but tie those things up and put them in your house after your wedding! Who wouldn’t want one of these cuties adorning a chair?

Inspiration: Vintage Doilys August 20, 2008

I just got a load of free vintage doilys, linens, handkerchiefs, and more off craigslist!

Gotta love the Craigslist, gold ole’ CG.  

Got my man, my car, my dog, most my furniture.. what more could one want?

These old findings are really inspiring.  The sheer hours someone spent creating these little beauties!

I had to pack them up to move, but will post pictures when I finally get to unpack everything, make a grand mess, and play with them.  

I am thinking one-of-a-kind whimsical wedding dresses, with all different shades of white in one dress.

All overlapping, different patterns and sizes of circles.
