Amazed by the creativity.

Sometimes when I am just surfing the net, I am literally taken aback by some of the creativity I see. This cake, for instance, is absolutely stunning. The detail work on the floral petals are amazing. Especially given the fact that they are all hand made and created by fondant. I'm not quite sure how edible it is, but it's is very visually appealing! Some people truly have a gift, and this cake is a sure example of it.

Here is another example of the many, many that I've seen. Just look at the floral design on this autumn cake. So creative, and very pretty, and extremely detailed! It truly amazing me with how far we have come with design. It makes me think back to when I first got married and remembering during that time, there was nothing remotely close to the things I see now. Makes you wonder if brides know just how far we've come? So the question comes to mind; If you had a chance to plan your wedding all over again, what would you do differently?

Burlap Love

I'm in a little bit of burlap love right now. The fabric is so neat and versatile that it can really be used just about everywhere.

I really like the idea of growing a few herbs in little pots for the kitchen, and think that the burlap bag can really add some texture to your living space. Something about them just looks homey, but yet has that rustic look.

They can easily be used to cover up an ordinary pot and can also be reused many times over. They are fairly inexpensive and they hold shape well. Adding pretty ribbon to tie them, is a great way to dress them up a little more.

Well Hello Pintrest!

I don't know where you've been all my life, but I'm in love. Have you heard of Pintrest yet?? Its a place where...
"you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."
I could spend hours just looking at all the neat ideas, and find lots of inspiration from many of the pinboards. Everyone shares things that they have found and it's all in one place! 

Take this picture for example. Someone found this beautiful wedding scheme on the web and "pinned" it to their board and added other pictures to help them create a dream wedding.

I absolutely love the idea and plan on visiting more often to find some great ideas, and beautiful inspirations!
