Just a Little Pit Stop in Blog Land...

Just checkin' in a bit.

I've got my checklist and I'm belting out pretty stuff for Daughter & Not-So-Plump Ernie's wedding. Our guests arrive Sunday night and the plan is Pizza with all the families on Friday the 14th and The Big Day is the 15th. ~smile~

I'm collecting Mountain Dew & Diet Coke cans to hang off their bumper with a big "just married" sing. I'm in the midst of polishing off 6 painted chicken wire baskets full of flowers for the picnic tables and making a rustic bucket to put some non-alcoholic champagne and glasses and ice in for the Bride & Groom's table. There's no alcohol allowed in the park anyhow but I thought they might enjoy a wee toast.

I finished my little place setting nests with m&ms in them. The big arch just needs some detailing. I've also embroidered flowers, beads and pearls on Daughter's veil. Very Pretty! (comes in handy havin' a Ma who used to work in a needlework shop. ;-) )

Before our guests come Sunday I need to finish all the centerpieces and make a cake topper and some signs. After they come I am making a big banner to drape over the shelter with white burlap flags and I'm making my white burlap runner-- Mom in law is bringing the burlap. She bought it and cut out 6 table runners and has a ton left.. so we're going to make good use of it.

Next week I also have to do the bouquet and the flowers for corsages and etc.. Those get done just a couple days before the wedding.

Between the crafty stuff and the running around to get things, I is gettin' pooped!
My poor garden is used to almost daily attention so it is being naughty and producing more strawberries than I can pick and lots of baby oak trees that I will need to pull out later. Maybe Hubby can help me pick some berries tonight. I'd hate to waste them. I am planning to make some syrup for a nice pancake breakfast when our guests are here. I LOVE strawberry syrup!

Well anyhoo... I don't think I'll post any pics here til after the wedding, too much time involved in that.

Just wanted to say hi and remember what its like to type.

Have a Pokeberry Evening!
