Denim and Pearls, Burlap and Lace Bridal Bouquet

I'm excited to share pictures of one of my newest bouquets in my shop! Last week, I created this Denim and Pearls, Burlap and Lace Bridal Bouquet. 

This was the picture that inspired the bouquet. I shared this picture on Instagram of my current favorite things and outfit of the day: denim jeans and a lace top with my layered pearl, turquoise and Farm Girl cuff bracelets. 

A few days later, I was driving down this stretch of back roads and it hit me! Make a bouquet with your favorite things, surely someone else will like the same things you do! I couldn't wait to get home and rip up an old pair of Wrangler jeans and get started on the bouquet.  The Black-eyed Susans have been so inspiring to me this summer - I could do a whole blog post on them alone!

So this is the bouquet I would want to carry, if I was getting married. Layers of lace and doilies along with miniature and full size blue denim roses, with tan and cream burlap roses, all accented with pearls. 

Rustic, yet feminine, a true country girls wedding bouquet. Perfect for the farm or barn wedding. 

The lyrics to Brooks and Dunn's song Rock my World (Little Country Girl) came to mind I was working on the bouquet.

This bouquet is Ready to Ship now, so head over to my etsy shop and grab her before she's gone! If you need coordinating bouquets for bridesmaids or boutonnieres for the men in your wedding party, please send me a convo and I can create a custom listing for you.

I must confess, I've never had sun tea before. Miranda Lambert's song Automatic mentions watching sun tea in the window, so it got me to thinking about my favorite drink. 

I'm on vacation this week, well staycation is more like it. Just hoping to catch up on a few things, spend some time relaxing, go camping, and make sun tea.  So today, I did just that! 

Spending some time relaxing in Miss Gussie, the glamper, watching sun tea. 

My fancy hot dog dinner ;)

Of course it's not all play, I'm working on some etsy orders and have a few new bouquets to unveil soon. This picture I posted on Instagram was I nspiration for one of the bouquets! 

I need to have a photo shoot soon, but for right now, I think a nap might be in order!

This week in pictures

This week seems like it's been busier than ever! Here are a few pics from my adventures and I'm kinda like our sweet puppy, I just need a nap. 
Loving the wildflowers on the backroads.
Meet "Durod"! Born a premie, he's needing extra attention and care to get him up to speed. But he's fighting hard and learning to nurse his mama. Hopefully bottle feeding days can end soon. 
Fog one morning on the country roads. 
I was very excited to get in coral burlap this week and created the first custom order with coral roses this week! It's been one of my most requested, yet unavailable colors, but not anymore. 
Coral and ivory pin on corsages. 
Coral and white boutonni√®res. 
I've seen 3 rainbows this week! This was the only "full" rainbow and certainly cheered me up to see it. It's hard to believe it's now June 1st and we've hardly had a 90 degree day. Usually we are already counting the days in the 100's. So thankful for the rain and rainbows this week. 
My office, one afternoon... Photographing and convoing from the hay barn
The larkspur and day lilies are blooming in my yard. 
A gorgeous afternoon at the farm, while feeding Durod. 
A little glimpse at Miss Gussie, the glamper. I keep adding layers of lace and started hanging stuff on the walls this week. 

Now, if I can only figure out where to squeeze in a nap ;)
