roselabiche: très chic tees

{ orchid -- ruffled tee }

ok, this is only loosely bridal. i could make a case for a bachelorette night-out or over a simple white skirt at an uber-casual affair. but i have such an etsycrush on rose la biche's shop! and i'm *so* not a ruffle kind of girl.

french globetrotting san francisco-based designer lucy sounds like a trifecta of cool. i *heart* you, ruffly amelie tees.

trixiedelicious: alternative china

{ seven deadly sins ornate set }

have i really not mentioned trixiedelicious? her shop was one of the first i 'hearted' when i joined the crack den etsy community... hey, everyone needs a vice. or seven.

her work truly speaks for itself -- perfect visual irony, not for the dainty or blushing. wicked gifts! more hand-painted kiwi insouciance at

what's cookin'?

hello all! am cooking up a little something behind the scenes, more info to come. there just might be a lag in posting. or i might use the blog to procrastinate. like right now. {blink blink}

[can i just say: thank god blogs did not exist when i was in college. am dating myself, but seriously. i'd probably still be in my second semester.]

in the meantime, check out this great interview! offbeatbride and diybride have combined to form an awesome bridal voltron ... er, sorry. ariel offbeat interviews khris d.i.y. about the dangers of 'craftier-than-thou' syndrome' -- especially perilous for already-crafty folks who think: what the hey! i'm crafty! i could hand-quilt 175 leather and straw save-the-dates -- i can whip up four sets of bridesmaid jewelry the morning of the wedding -- no sweat. (one of those scenarios is true.)

cabin fever! spring thank-you sampler

Spring Leaves - set of six greeting cards and envelopes
{ spring leaves -- set of six cards + envelopes }

snow? rain? grey day? if you don't live in florida, (and aren't my mom, who *loves* to call in february and say things like -- hold on darling, i can't hear you over the pool pump) (gah!) you might also be feeling that crazy old yearning for songbirds, pastel sorbet colors, anything linen or open-toed, and -- for the love of god, a leaf! a petal! a single crocus! anything. usually it hits me mid-march, am a bit early this year.

in that spirit, here are a spring dozen of fresh thank you note sets, in varying numbers. many of the sellers can make up a batch in however many your gratefulness or etiquette dictates. especially nice for spring/summer weddings.

more lovely handwriting on etsy. while lhcalligraphy's is a brand new shop with no feedback as yet, several of laura's scripts look quite fetching, and she also does charming maps and place cards. more at

myrakim: custom headpieces

{ custom bridal hairpiece with veil, flowers, feathers }

i'm not usually a huge fan of the feather 'fascinator' -- they can seem a bit tawdry, or old-wild-westy. but myrakim's use of color and little bits of french netting (russian netting? fancy-foreign-netting) sets her graceful work apart. each is custom made: materials include silks, organza, tulle, feathers, alencon lace, and beads, and can be as tawdry as you like.
