a new day.. another flower

Hello my darlings, my dears!

Ahhhh antibiotics are a wonderful thing! I can breathe, though a bit sniffly aka... sinus infection is breaking up. EEEWWWW.

On a better note I am making hair accessory and flowers for my dress. I also made a boutonniere (I made to look up the spelling of that word... I think spell check was laughing at me) for Handsome Man for the WEDDING!! A thought just popped in to my head: Do I need to make one for Monkey Man?
He already wanted me to do his nails... ahhh the life of a young man in a house full of girls.

My hair will be swept to the side and this will be in the back/side of my head

Blush colored dress, a little plain, had to add something to it.

For Handsome Man

We are getting down to the wire.
Lots of cleaning, lots of preparing. Pedicures and manicures for me and the girls. We do our own here in the Dragonfliez house. Hair cuts for Monkey Man and Handsome Man... we do those here too. Jane of all trades here and trying to save as much money as we can.
We are just going to the court house to get married, but we have a photographer for after to take some beautiful pictures of us in downtown Raleigh.
Hoping for Beautiful weather, but NC weather I think has it out for us here... forecasted scattered storms! Rain is a good thing on the wedding day, right?

On a sad, sad note:
MY Dreaded stairs!!! I am so not happy. the paint bled through the painters tape, but not the frog tape.

Not good. do i take a dremel to it? do I just paint over it with a chocolate colored paint? HELP!!

Until next time,

Linking up

P.S. Happy Mother's day to all of y'all.


  1. Love the flowers! Wedding plans sound like they are going great! Best wishes!

  2. That flower is gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing! I'll be featuring you next week!!!

    As for your stairs. Don't dremmel it! And DON"T paint over it! Get a little paint remover, or paint thinner on a q-tip and just rub it off!!! Your stairs are gorgeous!!!

    And I hear ya on Jane of all trades:).. Love it. Have a beautiful wedding, I'll keep my fingers crossed for warm weather!

  3. So very pretty. Sorry you were not feeling well, but glad to hear you are on the upswing. Hope to see you later for the newbie party.

  4. Wow! Those turned out great! Hope you're feeling better!

  5. Just paint it over with chocolate colored paint - my 2 cents :) Thanks for linking this awesome post at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop. It's a great Mothers' Day present for me :)
