gingham & glitter...

Busy & crazy day. Just wanted to share an awesome little farm feature today on Table Tops For Tots blog. Debbie just celebrated her 7th Wedding Anniversary. She had one very unique & beautiful wedding. Her bridesmaids wore gingham dresses and their reception was held in an amazing barn. Anyhoo, in honor of her anniversary, she is celebrating all things gingham! She graciously featured some of my Farm Charm work and I thank her from the bottom of my heart. Happy Anniversary Debbie~wishing you many more years of marital bliss:)

balloon envy....

I have mentioned Kristin and her amazing new blog, Hatter and Hare Events, before on my blog. I love to stumble upon new and creative party Mamas-and trust me-she is one of them. I saw this brilliant idea in my Reader and just had to share...I am one to spread the joy, love, cool ideas and glitter- not a Party Bully. Did you know that there are Party Bullies out there? Seriously.
Monogrammed balloons are a simple DIY idea, thought up by Kristin's 4 year old lad:) Smart kid, smart Mama...Easy, impressive and inexpensive idea. Keep 'em coming Kristin's 4 year old, party loving, brilliant balloon idea kid..YOU ROCK!
