Wow, this was incredible!! The best contest so far! Thank you so much everyone for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my lucky wedding elephants!! I had a blast and, yet again, many smiles on my face thanks to your sweet stories and kind words! After counting all your votes and getting to help,there are two winners of the March lucky elephant contest: a winner elephant and a winner person! (After all, I asked you to pick your favorite of the three featured bracelets, right? Therefore, it seems only fair to not only pick the winning person, but also the winning elephant!)

Here’s your No.1 elephant:

Vintage inspired GOOD LUCK ELEPHANT wedding bracelet with the most votes of all- No. 1 not only by one vote , or two, or three – but by far!!!

And, the winning person??… You ready? Ok, then, without further ado…

A tweet by Prettypearbride a few days ago reminded me of a Roald Dahl quote that one of my readers sent in during the last LUCKY ELEPHANT CONTEST How about that for the motto of the day (week, month, year, life??!…)?

By: Roald Dahl

Nod, nod, right?!

Thanks, Samantha, for sharing some perspective and making me smile!

Add Some Spring to Your Wardrobe

After these past couple of days, I have a feeling that my long lost, most loved season friend Spring might indeed be right around the corner, just waiting for the right moment to finally emerge from wherever (s)he was hibernating! Not sure about you, but my fingers (and toes for that matter….) are definitely crossed BIG TIME! No more snow, cold, frost, … pleeeeaaaase!! It’s been enough now! The white on the ground and the black on us people have got to go – it’s time for a big splash of color!!

So much fun to play around with all those pretty happy spring and summer beads! Perfect with this season’s trend colors!

One-of-a-kind Wedding

The more pictures I see of vintage weddings the more I wish I could get married again… If I could, I would totally, totally do vintage! So pretty and different! Just take a look at Lovejune‘s shop on Etsy! Wedding dresses that are just drop dead gorgeous! It would, of course, help to be as stunningly beautiful as the model in the picture, but even if not, the dress is a dream!!

Perfect, isn’t it? Thank God for Etsy and it’s amazingly creative sellers!!! Whatever you need and more – it’s all there! More beautiful and unique than you would ever be able to find it anywhere else – for a truly one-of-a-kind wedding that reflects your personality and style down to the last detail. And so convenient, too. One stop, a few clicks and you’re all set to wow your guests.
