Crissy's DIY Bouquet

Crissy left a comment with a link to the bouquet she created for her own wedding in Italy (without any practice!). It's simply beautiful! Also posted are a few gorgeous shots from her wedding in Siena.

Thanks Crissy!

DIY Flowers

A while back, A Cup of Jo posted about supermarket wedding bouquets and after finally getting around to looking at the guide on Real Simple I couldn't resist posting a few of my favorites. You could easily get a few bouquets out of $20-30 worth of supermarket flowers!

Uplifting Eye Charts

These eye chart cards by Ohkayk have uplifting messages by famous people, my favorite one being the top quote by Helen Keller. I love their graphic layouts, but to be honest I have a fondness for eye charts, I wore glasses from the age of 3-11 and anything that reminds me of those eye visits makes me nostalgic. Despite my soft spot, I think these card sets or even the larger prints would make great gifts!

Mary and Matt

I came across Mary & Matt's General store while perusing Kate Spade's Behind the Curtain, and I am so glad I did. They offer a small selection of really simple but great designed products. I absolutely love their stencil cards and there chocolate pie chart is not only a brilliant idea but balanced just the way I would want it!
