South Carolina Plantation Wedding

We went to South Carolina for my husband's cousins wedding. It was held at a plantation. It was very pretty. Although it rained buckets almost the entire time.
They had to put up a tent so I couldn't get a good picture of the front of the home. It was built in 1875.

We all wore yellow. All these pictures were taken with my iPhone so the quality isn't that great. Since it was raining so much nobody could look amazing.

The happy couple.

Cake cutting time. They had their own little cake and then served tiny cupcakes to the guests. They had lemon, lime, strawberry, and grapefruit flavors. I had lemon and it was good.

Then it was church on Sunday morning....

And this was  my pink skirt I wore. I got this from Paris Rags.  And I paired it with pink pearls.  This weekend my sister and I are off to Georgia. We are going to spend time with my nephew. I'm so ready for Spring Break. 

I'll take lots of pictures to share with you soon.

Spring Wreath...

Today Savanah and I went to Joanne's to find a new wreath for the front door. I went with a specific look in mind.  I had some things in my craft pile that I  wanted to use...

This vintage hankie, and these adorable vintage flowers and darling vintage bee.... not to mention some vintage hand crocheted edging that I wanted to use. I was thinking yellow and white and I found the perfect wreath already made up. You can't get any better than that. It was half the work and half price on sale. And I had a 20% off coupon. Deal. Sold.

So I brought it home and set to work... and I love how bright and spring like it looks. It reminds me of my granny because she always loved yellow flowers.

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want-- oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! -- Mark Twain

Hello March...

Hello March.... I am so glad it is quickly marching to spring! Pun intended. Although we have had a relatively mild winter here in Florida. My favorite time of year is spring and summer. I really hate cold, wet, gray days. I am looking forward to pastel colors and balmy breezes.

Not to mention little chocolate eggs and big chocolate bunnies.

 I have been busy with a little spring cleaning. The cleaning bug has bitten and I am ready for everything to be nice and fresh and bright. So Goodwill has gotten a few things and family members have gotten a few things...and I am slowly getting peace and order to this house! Yay! I've still got a little way to go. But if the good Lord is willing and the creek doesn't rise these things should be all done in no time.

Blessings and love to you,
Amy Jo
