The Lila Wedding Invitation Set

I'm so excited about the newest addition to my wedding invitation collection. My invitations are all floral in nature and this was the first time I really played up the type instead of a floral element.

It's a little hard to see the fun type in this first picture so here are a few more:

As you can see I didn't completely abandon the floral elements. This is the most downplayed I've ever gone with them though, and I am quite happy with the finished result!
What do you think!?

So I have definitely mentioned my love of these dragons toys at least a half dozen times. I just can't help it. They are so fun, soft, cute, and cuddly!

I just had to take a second and give Mr. Norman a shout out however because this is the first time I had anything to do with the making of a dragon.

First a picture of the fine fellow:

The first thing I should mention, and you can be thankful for this, is that I did not sew any part of Norman. My sewing machine skills are zilch so this really is for the best. I helped select the felt wing color and spike fabric for Norman after picking out a combination of patchwork squares I thought looked nice together. After that, Miss Pine Hill Forest set to work piecing together Norman.

What do you think!?
I am so in love with the colors, the patchwork of the flannel pieces, etc. Maybe I'm just biased because I picked it all out, but he truly is one of my favorite dragons she has ever made! I would snatch him up for my little Year of the Dragon baby (due in two weeks!) but I think I will hold out for something a little bit girlier for my bundle of pink on the way.  :)

And now I will leave you with a few more Norman pictures:

The Sweetest Day

Did you know that yesterday was my birthday?
I love having an August birthday and am crossing every finger and toe that our little lady will be born before the month is up.

I thought it would be fun to do a little birthday themed treasury on my birthday, but I didn't want it to be too birthday-ish. I love the way it turned out! And I so wish I could wear a scarf in my hair and look as good as Thrush makes it look!

My birthday was a day of thunder storms, doctor appointments, and a dinner in the city with a super cranky kid (until the chocolate was brought out). But life is good and I've no complaints!
