rollerskating is cool

luckily i have friends that are cool enough to still like rollerskating. so i'm planning on renting out the local rink the thursday before the wedding. we can have cake and pitchers of coke, play video games and skate. all ages are invited so the kids that come will love it too. hopefully nobody would get hurt or break anything. if i did, i'd just wrap the cast in vintage lace and walk down the aisle. i think people get too caught up in worrying about having their "day" be perfect. it is the unexpected imperfections that make you laugh at pictures, not the fact that your hair was perfectly in place.


my mom has some of this, if she hasn't given it away or sold it yet. she has been offloading a bunch of her vintage and antique china so i hope she hasn't parted with her jadite. i've always loved it. perhaps more that milkglass. but i'm not sure if i can commit to that statement just yet. i wonder when someone is going to repro this stuff. Target should get on it.

fabric flowers

a new take on the paper flowers - fabric flowers. One of my favorite things in life is millinery flowers. i think that is why i like old hats so much. these remind me of those old-fashioned treats.
