{ Wedding Charm }

I made this bouquet charm for a neighbor of mine. They got married today. My friend was sad that her parents who are no longer here, would not be at her wedding. I made this bouquet charm for her. It has their wedding date on the front, and on the back (not shown for privacy reasons) a photo of her parents.

I used a graphic, mouse drawn by me of a blue ribbon. I included their names and wedding date. Added a silver filagree heart charm. Then a silk blue ribbon was added, so the charm can hang from the bouquet. You have to have the "something blue" for a wedding. =)

The photo of the parents on the back can be changed out to a wedding photo if they wish~

Later this charm can be kept for a wedding keepsake or used as a Christmas ornament for their tree. In memory of the year they got married.

Watch for charms like this in my future Etsy shoppe~

{ The End of Summer }

This Summer was long, hot, rainy, stormy. Even a hurricane went through.

Only one lonely Morning Glory bloomed this year.

Some of our garden did look beautiful this year. Pretty and lush in some parts. I will be planting sweet potatoes vines next year for sure.
The Dogwood trees are heavy with berries. Soon they will be ready for the passing Blue Jays and Crows to snack on.
The last of the Purple Cone Flowers. One of my favorite summer flowers.
The storms were hard on my rose bush.

The Morning Glory vines made it to the top of the porch. They look pretty, but no flowers in sight.

I'm looking forward to cooler days, Mums and pumpkins. The crunch of leaves under your feet. Autumn, my favorite time of year~
