Summer Treats

Can you believe it's the end of July! Wow, the Summer is slipping away! It's about time we were treating ourselves to something good! Here is a link for a yummy recipe for Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas! Holy Yum Batman!

We also have some "yummy" new vintage linens and quilt squares just listed. Karen and I truly have a hard time passing up these special pieces of handwork.

The time, effort and love that has gone into these makes them little works of art in our minds. And Karen is the master at getting the stains out! I'm always amazed and how fabulous they look when she is finished with them! Click here to take a peek! Enjoy!

Wedding Update

~Favorite Bouquets~
This one is my all time favorite this year. It was so unique with Lisianthus, Hellebore, Andromeda and Roses. Drizzled with beaded pearls and crystals. I had such a fun time making this one!

This one was hard...for me! But turned out so beautiful.

Megan and her pretty maids! Loved her colors and how the hydrangeas looked with the freesia, orchids and deep purple accents.

This bride wanted something that felt like wildflowers... with a Red, White and Blue color pallet

~Centerpieces and Arrangements~

I love how Cake Plate centerpieces look. We placed them on top of mirrors so the crystal and chandeliers would reflect in the rustic barn setting. It was so cool!

I love doing fresh floral on cakes!

A gorgeous Alter Arrangement made by my wedding buddy Carol!

An over sized Cylinder Arrangement. This was so fun to make, but I didn't have a step stool and I was so afraid I was going to tip it over while I was standing on my tippy toes!

~Wedding Decor~
-Rustic Wedding-
It was so fun to do something different. This bride wanted her reception in a barn, but couldn't find one to use. So I transformed a church gym instead! We used Burlap for the backdrop curtains and many of the tablecloths.

I made rustic directional signs and used vintage pieces for the food display and accent pieces.

I had a blast designing this wedding!

-Asian Wedding at the Persimmon Golf Club-

I was blessed to work with a friend on this wedding. She took the lead and it was fun to be her helper. Didn't she do a great job with the design!

I loved how the shade umbrellas looked waiting for the guests to come!

-Barn Wedding-

Loved, loved this setting! Again it was really fun to work on something completely different! This is the gorgeous...but rustic McMenamin's Octagonal Barn. We brought in lots of curly willow and lights, hung crystal chandeliers over the tables and used mirrors to reflect the lights and open up the space.
I loved working on this wedding too.
I feel so blessed to be play a part in making someones dream wedding day come true!

Something For Everyone?

Have you ever seen the garage sales that say, "they have something for everyone" Usually we get to those and think...yea right...false advertising! But last week we found one that truly fit the bill! We couldn't resist taking a few pics at this Barn Sale. It's not everyday that you see a vintage Electric Chair for sale...right next to a vintage Coke Machine! We got a real kick out of that!

This week we have been working on restructuring our website and adding new products. We'd love to know what you think. Hopefully it's a bit easier to find all your favorite products with things a little less spread out. You can find our website here.

We hope you are having a great summer!
Eileen & Karen

Signs Of Summer

Summer had taken it's sweet time arriving in Oregon this year....but we think it's finally here. Several days of sun in a row and temps above 70 degrees are a welcome reprieve from the rainy, soggy days we've had for months and months.
We ventured to the Coast on Saturday to soak up some of that glorious sun.
What a wonderful day with family and our sweet little guy...his first time putting his toes in the water and joining in the Frisbee fun!
Awe, the sweetness of summer is here.
