A Vintage Outdoor Wedding Theme

Hey all,

We’ve been so bad about posting with all the moves but I wanted to start a series on my vintage mountain wedding – you know for all of you planning for next year!  Let’s start at the beginning with or save the dates that Ashley made for us.

We loved the idea of using a vintage postcard feel for Portland Oregon – plus, we save on postage!

The front

The back that you can have customized for you – see the cute little message she put around the edge?

Stay tuned for more details from our wedding – you’ll LOVE all the DIY we did.

Wednesday Wants: Sesame Street Birthday Invitations

So Ashley’s not one to brag but lately we’ve been missing in action because of moves and extra side businesses (me with PDXWildlife and Ash with Intowee).  Yes you heard it right, Ashley started a new paper line on etsy.  Well OK, the “line” right now is composed of  these cute little sesame street invites that she made for Jax’s first birthday but she’s been steadily getting orders for that in between her school work.

She has lots of other really cute stuff too (like casino themed invites and my wedding stationary for a mountain themed wedding) that we’ll feature as she puts them up.

Go Ash!

FASHION FRIDAY: Returned from China, Meg & Dee

Meg & Dee are finally back from China!  And Jax & I are up visiting them!

Hopefully you’ll see much more of us after this week.  The transition for all of us (their return and our travel up north) has resulted in us being a little lax in our postings.

Here are some pics of Meg and Dee.

Hope you have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Here’s to the Dads

Here’s to all the dad’s out there who have made us all the people we are today.  I know Ash and I are super lucky to have a fabulous dad in our lives and to have fabulous dads for our babies now that we’re grown.   It’s amazing how much a dad can build you into the person you are and what minute silly details make the most difference in your life.  So in honor of Father’s Day I thought I’d share my favorite memory of my dad (well among many but this one just showed he cared).

Remember in high school when it was someones birthday and they got called to the principals office for a special birthday delivery? Everyone would be so intrigued by what they’d walk back through the doors to the classroom holding and awed by how many people loved them!  Not everyone was lucky enough to have parents that would deliver something special on their birthdays but my dad would always make at least one delivery for us during the day.  When we returned from the office it was always with a bouquet of roses in our twin colors – purple for me and pink for Ashley.  I’m not sure why this sticks in my mind so clearly as a favorite memory of my dad but I think it’s because it really set the bar for the men I would date in the future.  We were taught from a young age that it was the thoughtful gifts that made a difference, not necessarily the expensive ones.  You know, that perfect gift that shows the person really knows you?  I think that’s what those flowers always symbolized, that Dad had known us from the very beginning when we dressed in all pink and purple and he still loved us regardless of our poor fashion sense.  It was an “inside” gift and it always meant the world to me.

We love you Dad!

Featured Etsy Shop: Scissor Mill

We were so in love with these customizable beer mugs for our Father’s Day giveaway that we had to write Sara from Scissor Mill and see if she’d donate one.  Lucky for our giveaway winner, Sara agreed and a custom mug is now going to one lucky dad ;)

If you missed out on the giveaway don’t worry you can still get your custom pieces from Scissor Mill for all sorts of other occasions!  For example, if you’re having a wedding this summer why don’t you get your groomsmen personalized beer mugs:

Customize beer mugs with the names of your groomsmen.

Or if you’re attending a baby shower and want to spoil the mom or dad instead of getting yetanother burp cloth that they may not even use why not go for these “mom & dad” glasses (or even celebrating a baby coming into the world):

So cute for parents-to-be!

This keep calm and mother on wine glass would also be perfect for your moms birthday or a mother-to-be:

We got so many comments on this for the Father’s Day giveaway as a favorite item from Scissor Mill, I just had to include it!

I kinda love these customized baking dishes (I will never lose another casserole dish at a potluck again and since my large casserole dish has gone MIA since the last potluck I attended I’m seriously considering this cute owl):

No one will be mistaking this casserole for their own!

Sara designs and applies the etching by hand so each piece is really unique!  We hope you go and support her shop for your next unique occasion too!

Featured Etsy Shop: Spice of Life

If you’re a foodie then you’re probably obsessed with spices.  And high quality, organic spices can cost their weight in gold but Spice of Life provides these spices at a very reasonable price.  You’ll recognize this shop from our Father’s Day giveaway where one lucky winner will get to give their dad Spice of Life‘s magnetic BBQ Dry Rub Kit:

Summer BBQs here we come!

But you should really go and check out all of Tami’s fabulous herbs, teas, sugars and salts!  My favorite is the Chai tea kit (have I told you how obsessed Dee and I are with Chai tea? It’s a little ridiculous).

Ah I would just love starting my morning off with this set!

And of course since we spend half of our year in China the Asian herb and spices kit and the Flower Blossom Tea kit would be right at home with us in our Asian apartment:

I LOVE this picture, it really reminds me of the Asian zen gardens. Asian Herb & Spice Kit from Spice of Life.

Tea is a “go-to” in this house and we start off almost every morning with it. I love floral teas as dessert teas though! Yum!  Flower Blossom Tea Kit from Spice of Life.

Tami really does have something for everyone though.  You can get gourmet sugars and sea salts or even make your own kit from the spices she has available in her shop.

And if you’re having troubles with what to make for dinner or how to use all these wonderful spices once you’ve bought them as a gift or for yourself, just hop over to the Spice of Life Blog for ideas.

So go buy Dad some special herbs from Spice of Life and if you weren’t our giveaway winner can I suggest the BBQ Dry Rub Kit?
