Here Comes the Bride

I think that I have mentioned that my daughter, Sarah is getting married this September.  Mike and Sarah got engaged in Disney World last year.


I love the Wedding Song, and it's especially lovely when played by a piano.

Sarah and I went to find her dress several months ago, and the dress arrived.

So, yesterday Sarah invited me, Mike's mom, the bridesmaids and maids-of-honor to see her in THE DRESS.  When Sarah stepped out of the dressing room, she looked radiant in her beautiful dress.  I will share the big reveal on the wedding post.



The girls were also there to try on dresses for the big day.  They were trying on dresses for the bridesmaid and maid-of-honor dresses.  Sarah has chosen her best friend. Amanda and her sister, Ashley to be her maids-of-honor.








It was the second dress that they tried on that looked absolutely lovely on all the the girls.  I'll share them too when I post about the wedding.

Did I tell you that Brayden came along too?



Here are Ashley, Brayden, Sam, Sarah, Amanda, Stephanie and Raelyn.  We finished off the afternoon going out for lunch.



I am linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday today.  Weddings and new babies all in the same year.  What a lovely chapter...

Daffodils, Shepherd's Pie, and Daydreams of Flowerbeds of Pansies




It was such a blustery day today, Shepherd's pie sounded perfect.  At the market I picked up several bundles of Daffodils.  Hoping to paint them later today.

Blustery days always remind me of Winnie the Pooh.



It was so blustery in fact, that Cape Cod and the Islands had Blizzard conditions.  We just had Winnie the Pooh wind.  I quite love the sound of wind gusting outside.



I wanted to also make some vegetable soup, but I'll save that for tomorrow.

Pansies and Daffodils, a reminder that Spring in New England is just around the corner.  I just designed a new Pot of Pansies pillow cover in indoor and outdoor fabrics on my shop Frenchscript on Etsy.




I took a watercolor painting and used it for the pot and added more of my pansies for the bouquet.

Daffodils and Pansies are such happy flowers.



Daffodils and Shepherd's pie, and daydreams of pansies in my flowerbeds.  Enjoying my little Grandguys too.



Ashley and I had another photo day, celebrating Brayden being One Month Old.




How nice to have two little guys to introduce to Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin.

Have a lovely day.
