V For Victory!

Lately, I've had gardening on the mind.  Since I haven't even planted grass, I've got a ways to go and no time to get it all done.  In addition to no time, I have limited space and no gardening experience.  My yard is actually just slightly bigger than a walkway, that stretches along the back of the house and down the side in the shape of an L.  I get discouraged from time to time, but I know I can create something amazing with any amount of space.  My inspiration?  The Victory Garden!  I just keep imagining all those World War II women, determined to do their part and use what they had.  Here are some vintage photos and posters that  inspired me.

Love is in the Air

It's that time of year when all those lucky brides-to-be get serious bout' their wedding plans, so I thought I'd share some inspiration from my own weddin' a couple years ago.  My wedding was a vintage-redneck inspired backyard weddin'.  The vintage being my contribution and the redneck my hubby's.  We put it together in 1 month, with the help of our loved ones.
