organic louisiana – a wedding theme

Oh look it's me and sweet baby thangs :)

Oh look it’s me and sweet baby thangs 🙂

So being that I am getting married in seven short months it is wedding central around these parts!  Mimi, is in a craft whirlwind and the glitter is flying I tell you.  We call her “glitterball” because no matter what she’s working on she has glitter on her….like always.  Anywho, a lot of the posts over the next seven months will be snazzy tutorials on the awesomeness she’s making and yes my little budding maggies lots of it will be for sale in our handy dandy Etsy shop.

My wedding theme, and yes I have a theme, I couldn’t just stick to a color, is Organic Louisiana.  Let’s all sigh and think Louisiana, iced tea, squeaky front porch floorboards, fields and fields of blooming cotton and burlap wrapped bales.  And of course I will honor our fleur de lis and last but not least my magnolias.  Here is a peek at the overall theme and it is ALL diy, handmade wonderfulness.  Stay tuned for posts on how the heck she made all of this.  And I will introduce you to my sweet baby thangs too 🙂

Sidenote:  that picture was taken by my sister, super photographer, more of her photography to come!
