giant paper flower

Pin It Now!
Well I finally did it! It only took 6 months but I finally got around to making a huge wine colored rose, 15" across! I love how the dye gave the petals a nice striated texture, really looks like a real petal. The pop of color is amazing. And of course it's available at my Etsy Store: SparkleandChampagne.

Pin It Now! beautiful disaster

There's this little french bakery in the industry part of Rockville off of Parklawn called Saint Michel Bakery. It's the only place that could inspire me to actually get dressed and leave the house at 9am on a Saturday morning to pick up staples for the weekend, baguettes and croissants. These are not just any croissants but the closest to the ones I've had in Paris and Iceland...get the "special butter" croissants. They really do melt in your mouth!

oversized shearling and lace shorts

Pin It Now! beautiful disaster

It's been crazy busy lately with no time to update. I still need to finish up my paper flower tutorial, hopefully I'll get that done this week! These photos were actually taken on a rare warm day a month ago...right before another punch from the polar vortex. Nothing like oversized shearling to make even the tiniest of clothes feel appropriate.

Flower Crowns

Pin It Now!

You know those dreamy floral crowns you see at coachella? The ones tall lanky blonde models in ethereal white dresses float around in. They are of course made of real flowers, but real flowers die oh so quickly without any water. Hell my bridal bouquet barely made it through 3 hours of photos outdoors in humid DC, can you imagine in the desert? Well I decided it was high time I made one, but out of paper flowers in blushy shades. Make your own or buy it from my Etsy store!

I think the look would be great for a boho vintagey woodland wedding. I can just imagine a bride skipping through a beautiful forest with a crown of flowers on her head (and no worries about wilting)!
