I think I might have showed you a peek of these in an earlier post. I had seen this idea on Pinterest and loved it. My friend Stephanie has a metal die punch set, so she did these vintage forks .
The other project has been stamping bags and getting them filled with lavender and birdseed. I ordered these great little muslin bags from State Line Bag Co. and I mixed up the flower stamps from the "Delight" Fancy Pants Stamp Set and the saying stamp from Katie &Co ... stamping them with the Memento ink Paris Dusk and Bamboo Leaves. ( which are close to the colors Kate is going with for the wedding).
Then came time for filling them with lavender and birdseed. Of course my side kick and best friend, go to person... one I count on... and gluten for punishment... my sweet sister Jan, was there to help me with this part . She's the best!
Jan also spent the rest of that afternoon helping me add wire to these canning jars.
two dozed so far. Some will have sand and tea lights in the bottom and hang from shepherds hooks at the ends of the rows of chairs at the wedding, and then many will hang in the trees that night at the reception. Kate had been working on jars also :)
This is just a photo I found.. but I think its just gorgeous.
So from our cabin lot you can see where the arrow is pointing, is where the building and open area is that the ceremony will be. I had to look back thru my cabin photos to see if I could find some facing that direction so I could point it out.
Here is another photo.. you can just barely see the top of the building. ( obviously taken in different seasons).
Here you can see it better. It's Called Camp Crossed Arrows. Now all we have to do is pray for good weather, so help me out with that will you? Thanks :)
Thanks for sharing in my excitement.
And... thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
