My daughter was married this past weekend.  It was a joyous occasion, held at a beautiful historic home, in a rose garden surrounded by friends and family.  I’ll post more pictures (from the pros) later, but wanted to show a couple of mine!IMG_1954IMG_1969

img_1412Brides are always looking for a way to personalize and customize their wedding look, and a dyed crinoline is a great option.  The slip only shows when you’re “kicking up your heels”, but adds a touch of color.  I have three crinolines to offer in lovely spring-time colors.  All have adjustable waists and would probably fit a size 2-4 up to a 16 or so.  The blue and pink crinolines are brand new and offered at $55.  The vintage lime crinoline is $45.  Please feel free to ask questions at sherry_george@comcast.net.

Just returned from the Opimg_1442en House at Adornments.  Finally got to meet Laura, Alexis and Lucinda from Adornments.  The Grays from Gray Photography were there (adorable couple with amazing work!)  I met Charlie Thompson, who makes incredible titanium and wood rings.  Schakolad was there with their amazing chocolate confections.  I met Ashley Carter from Ashley’s Bride Guide.  She is so cute and it’s easy to see why her site is so popular.

All in all, a great afternoon to show people what I do.  If you missed it, here’s a picture of my display.  Visit the blog often.  I’ll be updating with new things shortly!

img_1278img_1274I found a great deal on these dyeable victorian vintage wedding boots (never worn!), but they were badly discolored and really couldn’t be used for white, however champagne was an option.  Of course, any color could have been used, but I wanted them to be dark ivory.

To prep, I stuffed the shoes with plastic bags after removing the laces.  I used brewed black coffee (still warm!) and literally “painted” the coffee on the shoes as evenly as possible.  I then blotted with paper towels to get all the excess off and as dry as possible.  I dipped the laces in the coffee and left to dry.

As I was completing the project, my husband walked by and I asked him to guess how I’d done it, and his reaction was “why didn’t you use wine, since it’s the color of love? ” Now I’m thinking of doing another pair ASAP!  There are lots of natural products that can be used as dye, and if the shoe was created, as these were, to accept dye, why not?

I added the blue stones for the “something blue”, however I’m thinking of finding some beautiful silk ribbon to use as the laces.  I think that would be a beautiful touch!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net.

img_3394This photograph of my daughter says it all — the excitement and anticipation of marriage the day after her proposal.  The wedding planning seemed to begin immediately, with lots of discussion, researching and shopping.  Who was to know that through this planning, I would find a passion to pursue just in the nick of time, since my current career is coming to a close!  Things happen for a reason!

img_1098These shoes are available for purchase for $30.00.  Size 6M by Delicious, they are new in the box, never worn.  The color is a delicate blue with white polka-dots, featuring an open toe and a 3 3/4 heel.  Very girly and also qualify for the something blue…

Don’t fret if these aren’t your size…I’ll have other options coming your way!  Interested?  Just email me at sherry_george@comcast.net
