Mister Finch

I came across one of these beautiful butterflies on Pinterest the other day...but sadly there was no link or credit to the maker!  I just happened upon Mister Finch's shop this morning and the mystery was solved! Mister Finch is vintage found object/soft sculpture artist living in Leeds in Yorkshire, England whose bio included this gem: I collect fairytale books, miniature metal chairs and love to hoard things in glass jars. I knew I had found a kindred spirit, indeed! Enjoy and be sure to admire his sold collection of work on Etsy too! xo

Love, Maude

I found these sweet handmade embroidered felt art and accessories on Etsy over the weekend. I was happy to see they are made by an artist in town! Indianapolis, that is!  Check out love, Maude. xo

Sheena & Ezra's Lakeside Wedding

I'm honored to feature the wedding photos of Sheena and Ezra Birt's May Wedding. I wrote a few weeks ago about the topper I made for their wedding cake and now I'm finally delivering on the photos of the rest of their charming lakeside wedding. Sadly, I was unable to attend... however the photos below, taken by Chloe Jennings, beautifully reconstruct the magical moments of the day! I've listed the vendor information below the photos...and you'll notice that Sheena and Ezra, with the help of their creative friends, were responsible for all the charming decorations- from the flowers and centerpieces,  handmade fabric wreaths and buntings, to Ezra's hand drawn wedding invitation illustrations. What an impressive feat (disclaimer: they are all professional artists-so don't fret)! I love thoughtful handmade weddings such as the Birt's...they seem so much more personal and special. Congratulations and Thank you for sharing, Sheena & Ezra! xo

Shabby Apple Maternity: Mama Apple

Did I mention that I'm pregnant? Only 14 weeks now and sadly I'm already fitting into the maternity clothes meant for  those further along. Woe is me. On a happy note, I was excited to be reminded that Shabby Apple carries the swankest line of maternity clothes in addition to their non-preggo offerings! xox
