Wedding Plans....

Hi there.
Greetings from FREEZING Manhattan!

Grace and I are on a mission today...
We need dresses for a special occasion.

I made this last week on TV,
using one of the new Art Nouveau stamps,
  

a 6x6 Gelpress plate on its megamount,
a couple of Artistry ink pads
 and some lovely lace.
To be honest, today’s not the kind of day to be stripping off and trying to squeeze your jetlagged, white, needs-to-lose-a-stone-before-the zip-will-close body into anything other than a pair of fleece jogging bottoms.....

More will be revealed - literally!

Grace, let’s go and have coffee and a muffin first.
Then let’s make a list of what needs doing if this wedding is going to go well. I can see why people hire wedding planners!

Love & Hugs,
Barb

  5. My daughter always chooses things for me that I wouldn't go for and she is always right. I'm sure Grace will be a big help too. Lovely to take the opportunity to involve her. Happy stripping and shopping! xx

  7. Thought you might have gone to share wedding shopping with Grace. Mother and daughter time, very special. Julie had a big say in my dress for Greg and Amie's wedding last year. Freezing here too and we are out walking dog three times a day, only fourteen more days til they come back. xx

  9. Sounds like you will have fun with Grace. I am just home from Edinburgh, having had a lovely time with my daughter at her flat along with some of the family. Bed at 4am seemed like a good idea, but not so sure now!

  10. Saks on Fifth here we come! Almost, almost, almost bought a Philip Treacy hat there but the excess baggage cost stopped me. Enjoy your shopping trip. ;~}

  12. Shopping for that special outfit is worth all the effort of trying on lots of clothes. Coffee & a muffin sounds good though, extra calories needed to fend off the cold!! Have fun x

  16. New York must be one of the best places to find something fabulous for the wedding Barbara, and lovely to do it together with Grace, and the muffins are merely to provide the energy required for shopping and not because they are yummy..lol. Hope it is going well. x

  23. Hi Barb,
    Although I'm not a big fan of getting undressed, dressed etc for trying things on ( I'd rather buy, try at home and return!), I'm sure that you and Grace will have a lovely time, preparing for something so special. It's lovely that you can share this time with her. Enjoy your time in New York. Love and hugs, Alison xxx

    1. Thank you for your comment yesterday Alison. My sciatica is much better but my back is still painful, especially at night in bed. Haven't got a date for my treatment yet but couldn't have it yet anyway until after Pete's had his op and out of his sling, It's all a waiting game isn't it. Hope you get yours soon Alison, love and hugs Pam xxx

  27. Hello Barb, what a beautiful card, hope all your planning with Grace goes well, knowing how organised you are (and I am sure Grace has her mothers genes), everything will be sorted. Take care all. Bx

  28. How exciting for you both. I hope you find something you love, even if the zip doesn't do up yet. Stay warm x

  29. You’d better get Linda working on a parchment wedding gown for you Barb, just in case you don’t find exactly what you want in the stores! I’m sure she would make a wonderful job of it. Can’t you just picture it?
