love letter bouquet

So I have been surfing wedding blogs more than usual these days because my fabfriend Fyns is getting married - for the second round - and being the faerie that I am, I am helping her hunt for inspirations and ideas.

Look what I found. My jaw dropped.

And in an instant, I remember my wedding (2004) bouquet: it wasn't what I had in mind. The florist had her way and made it into a gigantic ball bouquet. I remember how devasted I was. All we can do is take out the first outer row of roses to make it at least 10% lighter. It was very heavy. I didn't want to hold it.

Love letter paper bouquet! It would've been PERFECT for me, for us! Because my little love story started with letters - yes even if we were only 3 chairs away from eachother. Crazy silly people inlove! Why haven't I think of that before!? Oh I know because I was worried about the little girls' fairy wings, and hand painted flower on my flowerfriends' dresses, and a lot of other things! But you know, the magic of true love couldn't get a lousy bouquet ruin the weddign day eh?

Because I was so disappointed about DSF (see, only a bunch of items were on sale and they were all boring), I bought a funny footed tights by Claire's instead. Can't wait to go on a circus ride.

SENSE OF SIGHT : My Sister & I

Kahlil's "My Sister & I" clearly stood out from the rest of the sets. Maybe because it wasn't typical, or it surprises the audience with its technique. But I think it is because he taps reality boldly. It is such an honor to be part of his project. Well done Kahlil!

7 sets in 1 day.

Ok so I've made 7 sets in a row yesterday. Scary. It was a smooth-sailing shopping - all the great finds were showing up on my face and really all I can do is just make a story out of them.

Once upon a time, there were seven sisters getting all the pretty things in fashion. One day, the stylefaerie came to visit to play.

1. Sweet Grunge in July is heading off to a wedding. She is not afraid to mix the sweet and the edgy. Wearing her favourite boots on a pale blue vintage dress, she is the coolest bridesmaid I've seen.

2. Dull and Happy is very dull indeed yet pulls off her getup quite so. She tells me she is most happy when she goes around town looking for old things - books, toys, handmade jewelry. Today she's meeting an old friend.

3. Flaunt your love is going on a date. She talks a lot about how love can be very scary sometimes. She loves it when people stares at her, asks for her number, or offer her a ride home. She thinks she's the most beautiful among her sisters. She has the kindest heart. She wants to be a wife and a mother of 6.

4. Nightingale beauty is a classic chick. She has a rare talent of hearing animals talk. This scares her and prays one day she can hear no more. She keeps this to herself.

5. Wonderland is the most playful. She doesn't like to get "squeezed" in by whatever and whoever. She's always laughing and moving and making silly faces, yet very mysterious. She always remembers her dreams and talks about it the minute she wakes up. Sometimes she writes them down on her journal.

6. Good Mourning lost her goldfish today and so is not in the mood for any adventure.

7. No Secrets is the youngest and my favourite of them all. She is free-spirited and light. She loves life in general and respects the planet. She wants to be a fairy when she dies.

And they all had great time and live happily ever after.
