As a member of the bridal party I was unable to get all the photos that I wanted for my blog. These are from the photographer Jesse Boone from Finest Moments Photography. The Above photo was taken on the East 9th Pier looking over Lake Erie. Below, the cameo on the bride’s bouquet was from her grandmother, a fantastic was to incorporate something old or borrowed. Enjoy these photos of the most beautiful fall wedding.
A new addition to the family! I found this love-seat at an antique store on Lorain Ave. this weekend. At $100 this was steal, especially because it is in like new condition. Take that hours of searching on Craig’s List! I guess you find the things you need when you stop looking for them.
Here is an except from the 1958 edition of Good Housekeeping’s Book of Breads & Sandwiches. Not only does it serve as some good party or picnic inspiration, it is an adorable illustration.
Fiesta, a line of dinnerware made by the Homer Laughlin China Co., has a rich past and a thriving present. This timeless, sturdy dinnerware is a product of Ohio River Pottery. Its appearance has changed little since its 1936 debut in East Liverpool, Ohio. The signature ringed design graces everything from coffee pots to tumblers, pie plates, soup tureens, and sugar bowls in a rainbow array of colors. Not only can you find a piece of Fiesta ware in just about any antique or vintage store in Cleveland, you can view it on display in the Christmas Story House Museum in Tremont. (Think back to that ivory plate Randy Parker uses to demonstrate how a piggy eats.) Though Fiesta is still readily availble in most department stores, I recomend buying vintage peices or visiting the the Homer Laughlin China Retail Outlet located just over the the Ohio River. Purchasing a box of dishes from the JCPenny housewares’ department just doesn’t give the same thrill.
As you know just about anything your heat desires can be found on Etsy, but did you know they have furniture too? These photos are from SpruceHome, a great shop that sells refurbished vintage furniture. Please peruse their shop, I feel sure you will fall in love with their combination of carved wood and ultra-modern graphic prints. Even if you have no room in your home (or wallet) for these pieces, you can choose one as a muse for your next project.
