Wedding Wednesday Etsy Find: Certainly Chic Hand Painted Parasols

I have a love for parasols.  I think they are so pretty!  I hand painted parasols for me and my bridesmaids to use at my wedding so maybe I am partial.  I like doing DIY things so it wasn’t a big deal to paint them myself.  If you aren’t a huge DIY person no worries.  Certainly Chic has you taken care of.  You can have her do the work for you and at a really reasonable price.  Below is a photo of the parasol I painted, I brought it along for Katie & Kevin’s engagement session!

Here is what she has to say about her shop: As I was planning my own wedding, I began to create items that fit certain details that I wanted and couldn’t find in stores. And now, I want to share my love for creating custom items to enhance any event with you!

The parasols come in a variety of colors too!  I obviously love the fuchsia color.  The robins egg blue is also a really pretty color.

Wedding Wednesday Etsy Finds: Alona Freeman

Today’s post is definitely a little late in the day, but it isn’t midnight yet!  Prue isn’t at daycare this week so fitting in blogging along with everything else is a little tough.  It might also have to do with the fact that Auntie Mel came over today and we made cookie stuffed cookies.  Yes, you read that right. I said COOKIE STUFFED COOKIES.  Mel made vegan cookies that spread a bit so it was kind of a fail.  I also had a mix for a oatmeal chocolate cookie so we made those as well stuffed with double stuffed oreos.  Below is a photo of the oatmeal cookies that held their shape a bit better.   So sorry that this post is a little late in the day, I am sure you now understand and can forgive me.  (these images were all taken with Hipstamatic, on Auntie Mel’s iphone)


Now that I’ve shared my excuse onto this weeks Etsy Find:  Alona Freeman’s shop

I think this is a great find not only for brides looking for unique & vintage style jewelry, I think lots of ladies I know will love what Alona makes from vintage pieces she finds.  Her jewlery would make a beautiful statement piece for the bride & you could also get some really great necklaces for the bridesmaids as well.

Here is Alona’s bio from her etsy page:

Sorry about not posting an Wedding Etsy find last week.  If you’ve read Monday’s blog post, you know we were all sick last week so something had to give from the to do list.

Creating unique personalized stamps with a twist that will add a fresh look to all of your papergoods. We offer both traditional wood mounted and convenient self inking stampers.”
