Where'd you get that? Miscellanea.

Everyone must check out Miscellanea - the newest vintage shop on Etsy!

It has unique items discovered by myself and my friends Larissa (from Yours Nursingly) and Kaitlin (from Fully Pleasing). Definitely some good deals on totally cute things - even a vintage leather COACH purse and fun oxford shoes.

Tell your friends!!

Guess what blog-friends, I'm getting married!! Yay!!! I'm sure I couldn't have found a better guy for me, and I'm totally overwhelmed by how loved and blessed I am. The proposal was amazing, the ring is beautiful, and now begins a year of planning for a great wedding day, and and even better marriage. After months of gathering wedding ideas from tons of blogs, I finally get to put them all to use for my own special day! Here's a few pics from the day he popped the question...

Family came all the way up north for dinner - I had no idea!

Just discovered this online boutique called Ruche, based from California - but they ship to Canada! The clothes/accessories are vintage inspired, and really affordable, even with the shipping. Might have to order something sometime...

On the mannequin.

Guess what! I got a dressmaker's model for my birthday! More commonly known as a mannequin, except this one has an adjustable bust, waist, and hips. I just put it together - now to figure out how to use it...

Here it is modeling another recent creation. I found this blue paneled material buried on the clearance shelf at fabricland, only $3.50. And it was SUPER easy to make. I just cut out 2 panels and sewed the sides like a tube, then folded the top down at the width of the elastic band. Then I pinched in the waistband and stitched it in the same way (to the size of the elastic). I haven't even hemmed it, and I likely won't because it's jersey, so it rolls like a hem, and doesn't fray anyway! Maybe I'll put together a tutorial sometime...
