Shelby and Zach's Rustic Wedding

This October I had the pleasure of designing a wedding for a sweet bride that I have known for years.  It seems like she should be 10 years old but, she is a beautiful young lady now and had some great ideas for a wedding in a barn type setting with a rustic flair.  I must add that all this would not have gone on without all the help of my most hard working daughter in law, Katie who also directed the wedding..........

The arch was so pretty, I did it with fresh and dried flowers, somehow I did not get a good picture of  it

lots of white pumpkins everywhere......

First time I have worked with succulents, these are so popular for weddings now, they were stunning.....

I love how the doors of the barn came out.

she chose to use chairs and hay bales for everyone to sit on at the ceremony, love this idea......... 

All in all it was a beautiful day and a beautiful on to the next one!!! Cheers, lauri

Marburger Farms Show Fall 2012

Finally I am posting some pictures of my space at the Marburger show in October.  Its always a fun show in Texas and this time the weather was unseasonably nice!  Of course, it was a whirlwind trip for me because I had a wedding on the Saturday after I returned so I had all my things shipped and I flew.  That part was nice.  but, it made for a crazy set up because I had forgotten about most of the things I shipped and then bought more when I got there.  Crazy!!!! All in all its always fun in Texas no matter what!!! cheers, lauri

I've been sent to spread the message, God Bless Texas!!!!

Hey y’all, as most of you who know me, I can’t stop talking about Texas, and all the fun to be had there.  This trip especially I was honored to be included with a group of bloggers to attend the second annual bloggers luncheon at Royers Café in Round Top, TX.  Now getting to go to lunch at Royers in an honor in itself, but the lunch also included the opportunity to hear an interview with the Master Decorator herself, Carol Hicks Bolton!  Wait I need to breath………I have loved her books for years and  her decorating style never hoping to get within 100 feet of her,  much less at a lunch with her personally.  Need I say more I am in heaven for real now.  Just to back up a little, Okay I’m in Texas, for me this is the best it gets.  Then I’m in Round Top, the cutest little and I do mean little, quaint comes to mind,  a place that just comes to life during the antiques shows and exudes this air of magic.  Yes the place is magical.   In fact, the little town itself is a site to see, with all of the little shops and don’t blink or you’ll miss it things to see.  The homesteads that surround the place are just like out of a novel, so unbelievable.  But, to get back to the lunch, such a fun time, it was hosted by Royers Café, and The Dallas Market Center.  A portion of the proceeds for the luncheon again were to benefit Dwell with Dignity. I can’t tell you how much fun the lunch was as well as the inspiring interview with Carol Hick Bolton, by Karen Royer.  I felt like a sponge just soaking up all her ideas and her fresh approach to doing was you love in your own way.  She was just an inspiration and I am so glad I had this opportunity. 

Me and Carol Hicks Bolton, pinch me I can't believe it!!!!

The Famous Royers Cafe from the outside.......

These are some pictures of Carol Hicks Boltons space at the Marburger Farms Show it was 2die4! 

How cool is this big ole ball, I wanted it.  Thank you Royers, Dallas Market Center and Michaela Webb for including me in this most special event!  Cheer, lauri

Marburger Farms Round Top, Texas or (Heaven)

Hey y'all, I'm finally getting time to post about my amazing trip to Texas, the best yet!!!! I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had this time. I think this is the first time I did exactly what I wanted to do with no schedule or plans just me and miles and miles of junk! What could be better. From the first day, I was in heaven, my sweet friend Shelley had found the most amazing bed and breakfast for us to stay in and it could not have been better. A real working ranch with all the horses, cows, peacocks and etc. Just amazing beauty at this place. Here is one of the peacocks one morning I was leaving. Yes, he was white, is this my kinda place or what!!!!!! Anyway here are pictures of my space as well as my neighbors..........
