Photos Around Town

I like to take pictures of things I find strangely beautiful.  Like this building renovation …

… and graffiti, the carwash, bus stop stencils, and a hair salon …

… jeremiah’s love nest and a bug eaten leaf …

Pretty things are everywhere.

All photos taken by me.  Please give credit if you’re using.  See more here.

Wedding Guest Book Fun

We wanted to do something fun for our guest book, rather than just have people sign their names.  I wanted to look back and laugh.  I purchased a leather photo album with two picture slots per page and cut out different colors of card stock to fit in the bottom slots [for people to sign].  The top slot will be for photos.  We sat a few disposable cameras on the table, markers, a bunch of silly props, and some instructions.

I cannot wait to get the film developed because I know we are going to have some great shots … like this one of my Gramma Dorie!  Priceless.

Picture Window

I had found some old barn windows down in the barn [imagine that] and immediately knew I wanted to hang them from tree branches for the wedding.  In the end, I could only hang one [well, my Uncle Don and Mike did all the hanging] because the tree branches were higher than I thought and impossible to reach even with our ladder.

We removed the few panes left in the window [they looked pretty cool, but were loose and I didn’t want to risk someone slicing themselves on broken glass at the wedding], inserted a couple of eye hooks in the top of the frame, strung it with some clothesline and wrapped that around the branch.  I also hung a few vintage pieces I found in thrift shops on the tree along with an iron candle holder left by the original house owners in the basement.

I was quite pleased with the outcome and everyone [namely myself] had a lot of fun taking snapshots in the window panes.  Simple and pretty.
