Handmade custom invitations & stationery

It has been a long winter and that says a lot coming from someone who typically loves cold weather.  Don’t get me wrong, I try to see the beauty in all God gives us but sometimes the muddy snow on the side of the street is just plain uninspiring.  Over the years I’ve learned to surround myself with simple things that lift me up.  The past few weeks I’ve been making regular visits to the market to get a little Spring in my home.  Even simple roses are enough to lift my spirits and pull me out of the winter […]

Raspberry Garden Roses, Papers, Pink Peony Wedding Invitation, Glass Charms
