Party proposal poppin'

Behold, 'tis my turn to pop the question these days. Though paling in comparison to the perfectly poppin' proposal, my surreptitious scheme to propose to my bridal party consisted of embellished handcrafted cards accompanied by goodie boxes.
Each lovely lady received one of each upon which her respective name is scribed and stamped in a most personalized manner.
A poem characterized by lilting end rhyme was affectionately penned within on aged notebook paper,
whilst a doily stamped with the gal's name adorned the top.
After perusing the piece of poetry, the cheery chum decoded the highlighted message that read, "Will you be my bridesmaid?" followed by a heart cut out from a vintage novel and my signature.
A reminder leaflet stamped with the impending wedding date was sewn in for good measure.
Thence the amiable recipient peeked within the fabric-taped goodie parcel to chance upon endearing vintage fabric
enveloping a trio of deliciously divine macarons to entice her tastebuds.
I'm so honored they responded with a resounding "yes!" They are each so indubitably beautiful in their own way and have been such significant gifts from the Lord to me (and Alex). Thank you so very much, lovely ladies. God has used you each to greatly encourage and edify me for years to perceive more deeply the love of Christ and I dare not envision being up with there without you eight!

Dolling up

birthday parcels with sewn doily cards embellished with vintage buttons fit snugly within aged par avion envelopes, bakers twine, and pale-hued flora that emanate sheer whimsy is quite a strong predisposition of mine.

Weekend heartwarmers

materialized in the framework of an excursion to a neighboring flea market's debut,to which we were benevolently bequeathed VIP passes from the powers that be.I am propelled to lament: 'tis not a flea rife with the envisioned bounty of time-honored knick knacks, as expectantly flaunted at my habitual haunts,
though I dare not wager that the LA Flea Market was wholly devoid of tried and true antiquities,
even if honest to goodness vintage curios were more difficult to unearth whilst navigating
the sea of quality-defunct swap meet style oddities.'Twas more reminiscent of a telltale tourist trap in that aspect, especially with live tunes blaring
tangent to a fenced in watering hole for bougie characters,
and a chromatic line-up of the current yet transient Los Angeles fad
that is redefining culinary convenience - extravagance-brandishing food trucks.
The promenade lingered with an impromptu stopover at the bakeshop phenomenon named after the quintessential dessert complement, Milk,
for the mold-defying concoction of macaron ice cream sandwiches dunked in decadent chocolate.
'Tis times like these that I cannot help but to be convinced that God is so good to allow for such blessed and undeserved reveries in life's brouhaha.

Friday flashback

to a relevant sunbeamy afternoontide a smidgen more than a moon ago since I am bearing the brunt of the malady dubbed the crafting itch: the Renegade Los Angeles Craft Fairat The Cornfield, where proponents of the handmade lifestyle
including a convivial chum and myself, corralled from near and farto plummet ourselves in creative juice-motivated crafting workshops,handcrafted goody perusing and purchasing,and, to constitute the cheeriest part of the rendezvous, calling upon crafting queen chummies,Ruby,and Danni (whose handmade lovelies were incontestably the cream of the crop).
And, of course, traipsing the handmade wonderland with dear friends I miss dearly,and a couple of the most winsome kiddos in my merry microcosm.One of my far-fetched starry-eyed dreams (that I must admit I am a wee bit apprehensive to admit) was to show at a craft fair this year, but alas, God possessed other plans to monopolize my priorities. One day, prayerfully! Nevertheless, I do hope you'd be able to check off to-dos on your to-do list that you've been antsy to accomplish of late, whether 'tis rambunctiously catching up with a lovely loved one o'er a colossal cup o' froyo. Or tidying up thy abode to a spick and span state. Or progressing in the job prowl. Or organizing in a detailed degree thy life on paper. Or scouring the City of Angels for the tastiest French macaron. Whatever your tasks might be, do make certain to enjoy God immensely through it all in light of the cross. Happy weekending, genial gents and gals!
