Weddings. Bill Murray. Mickeys Dining Car.

What do these three things have in common, you may ask?

Absolutely nothing! Random is my game!

My Love Language at times..if you will...

I find it funny that I could literally HARDLY plan my own wedding, but regularly make decor and items for other weddings. Ironic, yes?

This chock full of love and info/programs and wedding info was made for Brandi for her lovely Georgia wedding last fall. It's always super fun to see how things are used after you make them. I have to say it also gives a sense of accomplishment on bad days to go back and see "Hey- I actually MADE all of those things. Sweet."

How it looked when I sent it:

I'm not only posting these to pimp my shop- but seriously- I haven't seen much sun or warmth in nearly HALF A YEAR now! We still have a good two feet of snow left here. My neighbor's little boy is starting baseball in two weeks. We just laughed when she mentioned it. How? Will they play in snow? Why didn't my family settle in the south? How much  longer can I go on feeling like Bill Murray in Groundhogs Day?

I never wake up at 6AM and I think I can say with certainty that I've never ever awakened  to "I got you babe" so I'm all good there! Isn't it great in this scene when he finally punches this guy in the face?  Is he Ned?

Brad finally had his first Mickey's Dining Car experience within the last week in downtown St. Paul. It's a landmark and has been featured in movies and visited by famous people INCLUDING Bill Murray. According to the cook on the Sunday we visited "Yeah, he's an asshole!"  He said this in front of kids. Very classy.
Now that I'm no longer eating meat (which I don't miss at all) it was a bit harder to find something to eat there. It's a greasy spoon, but in the best way. I ordered a grilled cheese and a side salad and the same cook made fun of me. He said  "Who orders a side salad here? Isn't that something you'd order at like an Old Country Buffet?" ??? It was odd in a good "we're in the city" kind of a way. No suburban faux niceties that day!

I'm off to spend some time with my hubby who I haven't seen in days due to his work schedule. We did just have a lunch date of french toast and diet cokes! How romantic!

Have a beautiful evening!

Snuggle up with Mr.TOT!
Grilled cheese and salad sounds good to me.
I hope you get your spring weather soon!
Any luck on the search for a new house?
xo, TOT

So pretty! You're quite a craftswoman! And I had no idea you have a shop. Is there a link somewhere?

Thanks so much! I DID have a link on my blog here but one day blogger turned it into a different looking link in a different language. Farsi? Greek? No idea. I need to get it back up, but until then, here's a link to my Etsy shop:

Also- do you sell your art?

I do sell my art, but I don't have any up on Etsy at the moment. I hope to get some up this summer. If you're interested in anything you've seen, though, message me and we can discuss it.
