ROCK WALLS AND BARN DOORS...

Today we went visiting to my sister-inlaws house. She lives on the other side of mt warning from us. This gorgeous rock featured garden wall houses there vegie patch and was made by her husband. All the rocks are sourced from there property up further and its still  a work in progress. I just love it and wanted to share it with you all.


The tree in the middle is a mt fuji cherry blossom tree and up until last season it did nothing was half the size and hadnt flowered....until they threatened to remove it and you wouldnt believe it out come the flowers and all new long branches...Do trees have ears..lol


This is a picture of the grand lady my warning..

IF I COULD GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN..

Do you ever dream of going back and marrying your husband again?
If you could have that special day again what would you change if there is anything to change what would it be?
For me it would be my wedding dress or maybe my will to loose more weight to fit into it properly. I gained a few kg's from boy number 2 and i guess i wasnt quite ready to part with it yet at any rate I had bought my gown before I found out I was pregnant, It was plain open at the back simple shoestring straps and the bottom had a layer of satin that came across the top part of the skirt down on an angle over tulle. But  because bub number 2 was coming into our world we decided to postpone the wedding for another year.
This is so adorable...


Now for the cake I was happy with mine it was a mint green three teired mudcake with embellished fabric roses and dragonflys on each teir, topped with a gorgeous gazebo housing bride and groom wedding topper. (will show some pics at a later date when i can download some onto computer). The only thing wrong with the cake was the lady was supposed to make it square not round.


Our wedding tables were covered with pink glitter and rose petals with a box of pink and white faux roses as setter piece. Each favour was a handmade miniture green and pink rose fabric/plastic covered handbag with sugared almonds inside, which I made, Now let me tell you we had 110 guests thats alot of mini handbags to make, they took weeks to do. But how orginal and cute they turned out. The guest list I would certainly change. Much much smaller and then we could afford to pay for more detail to the wedding.


Love this black and white theme. Ours was pink, mint green and white, as the bridesmaid wore gowns made by my mum One was pink the other mint green and the four flower girls, two were wearing pink the other green.

LOVE this bouquet of roses. Again I made the flowers of faux roses and lilys that flowed down with beads hanging from them. Looking back over this i dont no how i found the time to do all this and the handmade invitations to with a new baby, but that i dont think will ever change, I just love to make things and no matter how much I try to take a break from crafting and creating I just cant.

So at the end of the day i guess the main thing is we would all go back and change something on that day that we werent happy with but what really matters is the day was about each other and not material things around us.....Still wouldnt it be nice to marry our man again, something about a wedding that makes the heart flutter.
