Fund Finds: Stacking Rings & Pillows

It's amazing how I find things when I'm not really looking for them.  Or maybe I just have ADD.  I was looking for a headband for my little girl Ginger.  We have a family photo shoot coming up and it's essential that she has some sort of hair accessory cause she is bald.  I mean she has NO HAIR and if I put her in something blue she looks like a boy.  But that's not the point.  The point is that while I was looking for a headband on etsy I found these other items that I love.  It has nothing to do with Ginger or with the photo shoot but who cares?  Cause they are simply too cute not to share.

Here are some adorable stacking rings by Olive Bungalow.  I thought they would be cute gifts for my nieces (who are teenagers) or maybe bridesmaid gifts?  You can even customize the one with the initials.

And this one can be stacked with others...but why?  It's just gorgeous by itself.

I was also looking for some pillows for Ginger's room.  The poor girl has been sleeping in a room of chaos.  One of my goals before the end of the year is to get her room put together.  So while looking for pillows I found these at Vintage Green Limited.  Super cute ring bearer pillows.

I also liked this one from Freshline.

And in case you are wondering, I never found a headband that I liked and would be shipped in time for the family photo shoot.  Which means I'm going to have to make my own. Some times I really drive myself nuts.  But at least I found a great tutorial here on how to make one without a sewing machine (because I really don't want to dig that out of the closet right now).  I'll post it once I finish it next week!

Playing Around

One thing I wish I had was more time to play around with flowers.  I usually have left over flowers from my weddings but I'm so focused on the next wedding - I don't take the time out to just be creative like I should.  So I made a point a few weeks ago to use the left over flowers I had and make some boutonnieres. It was nice to make something just for the fun of it.  No fuss and no pressure!

M+I Wedding { Bridges Golf Club } San Ramon California

Shades of pink with teal accents - you can't go wrong with that color combination.  Loved the bold colors that Mei and Ian used for their wedding.  They also had really nice personal touches like the children favors or "goodie bags" with toys and lollipops and a seashell for each place setting.   They got married in June - and June is one of the best "pink" months I can think of.  You can get all sorts of spring flowers in pink - peonies, ranunculus, dahlias, tulips, calla lilies...need I say more?  We'll let the pictures do the talking....
