I found a burlap table runner and wine bag (that I cannot find photos of online). They were priced a lot higher than burlap should EVER be priced and a very common thought passed through my mind "I can make this." So I went to the fabric store and purchased 5 dollars worth of burlap and ended up with this bag!I just measured enough burlap to fit the bottle of wine and then sewed up 3 sides. Then got out my scrapbooking rubber stamps and painted on VINO. Taaaa daaaa!
Then while I was feeling crafty, I wanted to add a little something to these cheap-o boxes I found on clearance at hobby lobby. 4$ for both! I added our anniversary and initial. They look cute in my foyer!
Did anyone else get crafty this weekend??
With all of the fun and festivities, sometimes we forget the true meaning of Memorial Day. Please remember those who fought and served for our freedom!
Yall have a great weekend!
We went to over 14 cities in Italy including Pompeii, Rome, Sorrento, Amalfi, Florence, and Venice to name a few. We stayed in hotels with balconies that over looked the Med, places that I will never be able to afford again in a MILLION years! We ate our weight in gelatto and drank tons of vino rosa! This trip was the trip of a lifetime! We had a blast.
Aunt Dottie is currently in the hospital recovering after undergoing a triple heart bypass and valve replacement, a long ways away from trecking through Italy. So tonight, I am going to share our trip with my devoted readers. (The small few that actually read my ramblings!)
The coast of Sorrento (Mt Vesuvius in the background)
The amazing ceiling of the Sistine Chapel -I probably could have gone to jail for sneaking this photo.... OOPS! ;)
A small Italian town that I have no idea which one!
Everyone knows what this is!!
A canal in Venice
I have SO many more photos, so many better photos...but its hard to see them on my laptop, in the tiny blogger thumbnails, in the dark while hubby is snoring next to me! :) So maybe I will find the better ones and save those for another blogging day.
If Yall will, PLEASE keep my Aunt Dottie in your prayers for a fast recovery!
My necklace came adorably packaged in this Lilly wrapped tin. The tin now looks so pretty sitting in my jewelry box!
I chose the stamped initial necklace with a freshwater pearl (My June birthstone!) The fine silver craftsmanship is gorgeous. The charm looks like an heirloom handed down through a family with an awesome vintage feel.
Today at Lauren Nicole Gifts is 30% off of Hand Stamped Necklaces. Yall should go on over and check them out! They would make great gifts for those hard to shop for loved ones! Too bad my dad wouldn't appreciate an initial necklace! His birthday is this weekend and he is SO HARD TO BUY FOR! (I hope you are reading this dad!) Ü
Missy's Sister in law Michelle
On Saturday it was cloudy all day, but the sun came out JUST IN TIME for the wedding. I was so happy for Missy that it did! She looked INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL! Im not an emotional person at weddings, but this one almost got me... almost! I admit I got teary eyed, and I didnt even cry at my own wedding! haha Everything was pink and green and so cute! All of Missy's hard work certainly paid off!
Me and B

Well, that is all of the sneak peek you get! I dont want to ruin her fun and post too much! You will just have to wait until she gets back from her honeymoon!
I have also been having a hard time finding a new bathing suit this summer. I am usually a Target bathing suit girl, but target has disappointed me in the bathing suit department this summer. I found this suit on VS.com as well. It cost about the same as a target suit. Hopefully it looks as great on me as it does on Miranda Kerr! SIKE!
A few of my favorite Target things, are as follows!
How cute is this clutch for $20? My friend Missy in Pink got one, and I was a total copycat!
Even the interior is adorable!
I also got this cute seersucker skirt! (did I mention how much I LOVE seersucker!?) For only $20! Its much cuter in person... for some reason the model's legs look blue!
Well thats all Ive got for now! Adieu!
Is she not the most beautiful child you have EVER seen??
Pointing to her grandpa in heaven =,(
I could eat her up!

Adorable with pig tails
For mothers day we went out to our favorite restaurant Texas Roadhouse, and then had dessert at our house afterwards. I made my favorite Lemon Icebox pie, and B's favorite peanut butter pie. YUM!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
