Have you checked out Fancify {my etsy shop} lately?  I've been adding some fun new things...

{gala necklace}

{pink gala necklace}

Here I am modeling the pink gala necklace in my new $1.99 clearance dress from Ross.  That's right I said $1.99!  They were having a crazy sale and I picked up 4 summer dresses for under $2.49 each.

And I've added more fancy headbands like this one...the classy gal

Nicky Hilton turned this vintage Chanel tray into a chic side table

Some faves from the new Lonny...

I seriously loved these glasses... unfortunately they're not available in the U.S.
Maybe I'll get lucky and find something similar at goodwill?

Budget Friendly Bridal Bouquet

On Sunday night I got a call from a friend saying that her daughter was getting married the NEXT day and wondered if I could put together a bouquet for her.  Basically they had less than 24 hours to throw a wedding together and somehow everything turned out beautifully.  The bride was able to find a dress the morning of, I took care of the bouquet, another friend took pictures, another brought the cake and everything else just fell into place.

I was a little nervous about making the bouquet because I don't consider myself the best at flower arranging, but I figured I could make something work.  For the colors, the bride requested something dark purple with white daisies.  The dark purple was a bit hard to find, so after a trip to several different grocery store floral departments, I ended up with the following flowers to pluck from:

And here is the final result:

I also put together a little bouttonniere for the groom:

And here is the beautiful bride with her bouquet, she was very happy with how it turned out:

I meant to take more photos during the bouquet making process, but since I was a little stressed about getting it done in time, I didn't get a chance to.  Basically I just perused a few wedding blogs to gather inspiration and winged it.  I used floral wire and floral tape to secure the stems, keeping the flowers tightly packed in the center and used a little greenery for accent on the outer edges.  I then covered the stems with a satin cream colored ribbon and secured it with straight pins.  Together with the flowers, ribbon, and supplies, this bouquet cost about $20 and I even had some flowers left over to display in my home!

Congratulations Carrie & Johnny!

Country Girl

Today I'm dreaming of packing it up and moving out to the country to live EmersonMade- style.  Ok, most days I dream about living in the country, but this renovated home featured in this month's Country Living magazine makes me want to even more .  There's just something about a big white house with a wrap around porch surrounded by nothing but green as far as the eye can see...

Cozy, huh?
