Katie's Wedding

Tiny little photo.
I just had a whirlwind of a time this past 2 weeks.
It all started with a 911 call last Monday (my husband) and now here it is Friday and I am going to a concert tonight (that is really our anniversary gift to one another) with my sister in law Cindy. Thanks for going Cindy.
In between the call and now, our family had a wonderful wedding. My heart felt so full. I am a childless 46 year old. I can't tell you how thankful I am that our siblings had kids. They have enriched my life. I felt like my daughter was getting married. I cried while I was making her floral bouquet. It all went off without a hitch and they danced all night. The dancers included my 69 year old Mother and my 86 year old Great Aunt Betty. I was out there most of the night too.
There are a few more photos of the Bride and Groom my my FACEBOOK page. Can't wait to see all of thephotos that took.

Latest Projects

Before. Of course Lucy had to get in the picture.

After. Crackled turquoise. I think it may have been the last Country Home magazine that had a picture of a pink dresser that was crackled and I just loved it. Well pink wouldn't go in my house but I love this. This dresser was from my Great Grandmothers. Growing up my brother always had it in his bedroom but somehow when I moved out on my own I ended up with it and this is the first time it has ever been painted. The family never had anything expensive just simple folk so a simple dresser.
