{Casey's Bracelets}

I made these two very different bracelets for my dear friend Casey's birthday.

{Sigler Blue Bracelet}


I made this bracelet with Casey's in-laws in mind.
They must be due some award for the most perfectly color-coordinated family ever. I don't think they send out memos for family photo sessions, but they always manage to pull off pictures in a perfect color pallet of outfits in mostly blue hues with a hint of khaki and light yellow.

{Plath Bracelet}

{Casey used to read Sylvia Plath poems... but lately she's been reading Bonhoeffer}

Much like her taste in literature, Casey has a classy and eclectic style.
She and her husband are often, and accidentally, the super trendy "cool kids."

What do you buy a girl like that? Well, I did buy her some awesome earrings, and the only credit I get for those is seeing them, thinking of her, then buying them. She's worn them nearly every time I've seen her since her birthday. They are dark antiqued earrings with cameos that frame the face.
I don't have a picture, but hope to make some that are comparable in the future.

{Julie's Bridal Accessories}

This post needs a bit of a story.  Those of you that have followed (and read) previous posts will be familiar with {Grace's Bridal Earrings}. Well, Grace's good friend Julie and Julie's mom Lisa LOVED Grace's earrings.

A little over a month before Julie's wedding she still hadn't found the perfect earrings. So Julie and Lisa were gracious enough to allow me the opportunity to design and create Julie's bridal earrings. And I'm so glad they did!

Well, Julie's sweet mama came to me in secret to see if I could make a headpiece for Julie.  After a wonderful coffee meeting with Lisa and Julie's youngest sister, I had an order for two headbands and to dream up some way to incorporate vintage pieces from Lisa's bridal hat, circa 1985.  Needless to say, I had so much fun completing this super-special project.

Lisa just couldn't hold in the secret any longer and told Julie the surprises she had commissioned me for, and to my relief, Julie was thrilled! We met a week before Julie's bridal session and I was able to measure her for the cloth headband, try on a flower clip, and I had her make a decision on the earrings that just had to be in made in person.

In the end, I completed seven projects: a pair of bridal earrings, two flower hair clips, two headbands, and antiqued Lisa's wedding day, Mother-of-the Bride earrings. I also threw in a headband that Julie could attach a flower clip to and wear casually, post-wedding.

{And it all was a joy}

{Mary Elizabeth Maternity}


I have a sweet friend, named Mary Elizabeth, and she graciously 
let me take maternity pictures of her pregnant with her sweet little girl named Maddie Grace.

Maddie Grace is now nine months old, but I miss my sweet friend and her sweet family.
They moved this past summer so her hubby Jeremy could go to seminary.

Pregnancy is beautiful and miraculous.
