Here she is with her aunt/godmother.
I made good on my promise and had a dress made for her from my wedding gown. It looked great on her and I am glad I did it. We are also having a romper made for a boy incase our next one or the one after is a boy :-). I am keeping the top of the dress and will have a different colored skirt added to it later. Perhaps it I can wear it for our 10-year anniversary. That dress will certainly be put to good use! It cost a pretty penny afterall and I refuse to only get 6-hours of wear out of it :-).
JOE with her grandparents (my parents).
More pics on JOE's dedication later. The photog (my brother) had to leave early to catch a train back to NYC so he couldn't download the pics before leaving.
More DIY Projects
I saw this picture on Pintrest and wanted to recreate something similar.
J & I inherited this buffet from J's grandmother.
I got the frame from eBAY. I already had the mirror. The glassware was from our unity candles and also a couple of flower vases I have received in the past from J. My dad used painter's tape to cover the areas we wanted to protect and I went to work on this. It took a total of about 1 hour to paint and a full day to dry.
Here's the finished work.
Stones in vases: Already had these at home
Flowers: $24 (from Michaels. They were on sale @ $3.97 a piece)
Paint for frame: $6 (2-small bottles of glossy black paint)
Brushes: $1 (got 2 @ $0.49 per brush)
Another flower vase I received from J in the past. He buys me flowers often. I love that man...
Candle holders: Free (we already had these at home. They were a gift to J from way back when)
Flowers: $12 (they were on sale for $3.95 from Michael's)
Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
