In addition to everyone having babies, it seems that I’m at that point in my life where everyone is getting married.  I love weddings.  I’m not really the romantic type, but there’s something about weddings that gets me every time.  Big ones, small ones, doesn’t matter to me.  If I could go to a wedding every weekend, I would!  I also love planning them – it’s really neat to see all of the small details come together to make a big statement, and unlike your other parties, there’s picture evidence to remember it by!  I’m going to be talking about my own wedding for the next few days, and giving some pointers to those who are planning.  We did the whole thing ourselves, and not only did we save a lot of money, but we had a really awesome personalized experience.  Here are a few glimpses into the days to come!

I really love spring flowers that have bright, open multicolor blooms.  That’s part of the reason that I’m so into ranunculus, but there are some other choices that I think fit the bill.  Anemone is one of them.   I love the bright colors and the cheeriness that these flowers provide. 

The purples and pinks are something you can’t really get with other flowers, like ranunculus or poppies.  They’d be really nice for a modern dinner party or in a bridal bouquet.

I love the look of all of the flowers grouped together, but this mixed batch from Saipua always makes my day.

We have a winner for my March giveaway!  Congratuations to the winner – I’ve sent an email, so you know who you are!  And thanks to everyone who entered – I will be doing giveaways fairly often so check back soon for more details!

I’ve been working on the inside of a 1972 pickup truck so that’s taking a lot of my time this weekend (I’ll share pictures soon) so instead of posting what I’m doing, I thought I’d post what I’m loving instead.

I think that I’m doing to keel over and die from how much I love Candice Stringham’s photography.  She has been shooting these amazing pictures of beautiful ladies with umbrellas, “flying” all over New York.  She has such a sense of whimsy and a touch of humor, I just can’t keep from going back for more.

Purl Soho might indeed have the best collection of high-end crafty goodness that I have ever seen.  Plus, the online shop is great for people like me who live in a tragically unhip place with no access to the wonder that is their fabric collection.  They have wonderfully hip patterns as well, definitely worth checking out.

Erin Jang’s blog is a great place for graphic design and craft inspiration.   I love her custom wedding ideas, and there’s something that’s wonderfully handmade, yet still professional about her designs.

I’ve been looking at lots of flowers lately, as I’m doing all of the flowers for a friend’s wedding in June.  I stumbled upon Wild at Heart and I love their gallery – full of inspiration.  The flowers are romantic, yet modern, and there’s something about a huge ball of matching flowers that is just so striking.

Sometimes, I get a little down about the world, and I just need to read something funny.  I’m not much of a joke person, and my humor personality seems to be most akin to that of Eddie Izzard.  Which makes it difficult to find things that make me laugh.  Puppet Pie, however, might be the best blog out there for putting a smile on your face.  Words cannot even describe.  You’ll have to see it for yourself.

And because I can never get enough of beatiful photography, I find myself drawn to Bloom, Grow, Love‘s blog.  An amazing photographer, her images are captivating and have a wonderful dream-like quality to them (if only my dreams were this beautiful).  If I’m ever able to create photos this gorgeous, I think I’ll be able to die happy.

That’s all for today.  I’m embarking on a new project taking pictures of people’s pets, and I’m excited to see where it will take me.  There’s all sorts of things that qualify as pets down here – dogs, cats, lizzards, goats.  😉  I’ll be posting photos as soon as I get them!

I know that it’s still in the cold clutches of winter for a lot of you out there, and I don’t mean to rub it in, but it’s been in the high 80’s here all week.  My poor cold-climate conditioned body has no idea what to do!  However, it does mean that flowers bloom early

here and it’s time for me to start thinking about flowers.  Well, not really, because I don’t have a garden, but a girl can dream, right?

My gardens usually consist of some pots outside on the patio, and the other day I stopped by the nursery to see what I could find that would do well in a container.  I found a see of ranunculus!  They are one of my favorite flowers, and I had no idea that they would be so easy to find.  I bought one plant as a test, and it has shot up 10 buds in the last week!  Which is amazing.

Please excuse the terrible picture, but this is a bouquet I made for a friend’s wedding last fall.  She had chosen white spider mums, orange tulips, yellow snapdragons, red-orange alstromeria and white roses for the rest of the bouquets and arrangements, but also picked a bunch of orange ranunculus for herself and the groom’s flowers.  They were a delight to work with, with their huge heads of petals and bright color (and they have a cool striped stem as well).  I can’t get over them – I’m going to go and buy a bunch more plants at the store today so I’ll have lovely cut flowers all year.

Here’s some pictures of ranunculus to get you inspired!

If anyone happens to live in Brooklyn, I highly suggest visiting the incredibly talented Sarah at Saipua.  She always has tremendous, unusual and beautiful floral designs.  (that’s one of hers above)
