Red Truck Series

I'm trying my hand at Picasa and have created my first collage using images of my favorite series from my secondary shop, Danizabeth. A goal of mine is to get all of these printed and hang in a mosaic on my wall.

How is it that the things you look forward to the most take the longest to arrive, but the quickest to end?! After much anticipation, practically in a flash my college roommate/best friend's wedding has come and gone. The weather couldn't have been more perfect and she looked absolutely stunning! The weekend was a blast, but has left me, and probably every other guest that chose to enjoy each other's company til the wee hours of Sunday morning, extremely exhausted.

Here is a picture of the custom flowers I made for the bride.
When I'm sitting at work tomorrow, ready to nod off at any moment, I will be thinking of the happy couple as they depart for their honeymoon. And by thinking about them, I mean I will be extremely jealous of the fact they are on the beaches of Riviera Maya, Mexico while I'm in an office with no windows in Illinois! Much love and best wishes to Kenny and Stacey.

"You'll be the better part of me, oh, for the rest of my life." Anberlin - You Belong to Me

I need to pack my suitcase. I need to repaint my toes. I need to charge my camera. I probably need to do things that I will forget about until I'm ready to go to bed. I need to do all of these things because Saturday my best friend is getting married! I am so excited to witness her become Mrs. Flowers (cute name, huh?) In honor of her special day, I have themed this week around relaxing before a wedding.

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." Albert Camus

With the flowers of fall appearing in full force in the Midwest, this week I bring you four shops with flowers that can be enjoyed all year. Wouldn't it be great during a snow-filled winter to look at your wall and see the beauty of a spring flower? Or to be able to walk around all year with flowers finishing off an outfit as the perfect accessory? Take a look at these wonderful shops to keep the flowers blooming all year!
