Nine Days Left to go ....


The Wedding is fast approaching and I am actually fairly calm and enjoying some time creating some bits and bobs to add to the informal, homemade feel of my wedding.



Whilst gardening last weekend I ended up throwing away a plant that had withered and died in this basket. After a clean up, some gold spray and ribbon wound around the handle I thought it would make a lovely confetti cone holder.


The table names are named after Scillonian Islands, where Tony and I are going for our honeymoon. I can't believe that some printing companies charge as much as £50.00 for one of these table seat plans!!
These painted rocks will sit amongst the foliage on the tables.



I wanted a bag for my flower girl to carry with my handkerchief, lipstick and other necessities on the day of the wedding. The ones I found were very expensive so I decided to use some silk I keep for embellishing projects. The bag was constructed in no time at all and the flower I happened upon at our local supermarket for £3.00. I'm very pleased with the result.

A pretty box with something very important inside it which I will show you after the wedding!!!

What a creative lady you are! And how much more satisfying it is to make things yourself for a fraction of the shop price!
