Finding Inspiration...

Yes! Muy pretty!
That is why I couldn't resist!

Even though it's a "wedding" publication...

Any magazine that makes the effort to have a swirly embossed
back like this for each issue...gets my vote! YUM!

As you can see it's called CEREMONY ...which is not shockingly original...
but it is one amazingly gorgeous piece of eye candy!

I saw an issue at a florist's shop a few months ago and went on
the hunt to find it!
Although it only costs $6.99 an issue...{I have NO IDEA how anyone
can publish such a fabulous, nearly 350 page, wall to wall color magazine
for $6.99!!...they are obviously a money laundering front!} I was still
compelled...by the cheapiocity deep within my soul...to find it for less...
AND I DID! SAVE ON CRAFTS ...LOVE THEM...sells all the back issue
starting at $3.99! So, I bought well, what is more that a few and less
than all? Yah, that many!

Maybe it's the photography geek in me...but I could look at these pictures all day!



And inspirations on every page!

{once I woke up in a field with my hair something like this...
well, that's a story for another day...;}


Ok, the pink satin is a bit "gag me"...but the idea of the table
looking like a cake...I LOVE!



And for you hardcore "wedding junkies"...they feature about 40
weddings in each issue with details about how the couples met
and where he popped the question, etc!
I have to admit, I even read some of that stuff too!!

Also, for the pet in your life...
each issue comes bound with this bit of brown paper,
trash to the mere human...

Hours of fun for the furry loined beasts!

Hey, I said he was handsome...
I never said he was a genius! ;}
