handmade registry.

i was really humming and hawing over my registry. the martha in me wanted to register all proper with place settings and linens and a few kitchen gadgets. but something didn't feel right/ something was nagging at me. it just didn't seem to fit in with our eco-friendly diy wedding approach.
leave it to my beloved's shock and awe of the registry process to declare: i just thought you'd have a handmade gifts list.
a handmade gift list i repeated to myself.
yes- by job- that . is . it!
(yes, he is a gentle genius).
i looked around at wists and a few others and then decided to just set us up an etsy account and start picking favorites.
on our wedding blog we have link to our favorites page and viole:
all etsy.
all handmade and vintage.
all goodness!
i was smiling the entire night whilst clicking away and 'adding' to my favorites.
i love handmade-it has been so good to me.

oh the cougars.

this is my story.
i hate the cougar stamp. recently i rec'vd a save the date from a dear friend. what a lovely one it was. two birds on a branch. you couldn't please this mosey girl more. i flipped it over for the details and bam. there it was. the ugly, oddly blue, cougar stamp. i though to myslef then: couldn't they have picked a better stamp!
boy was i wrong.
the cougar is the ONLY postcard postage proper stamp they make. it took me 3 trips to various post offices and a phone call to make sure. my save the dates went unsent for days while i dilemma-ed over this. dismayed really. all the work that went into making them - all for a lousy cougar postage stamp.
call me crazy. i know my mom and alex already did. but i wasn't giving up that fast.
i went to the local post and inquired:
now what combinations do you have that make up 26 cents?
oh, yes i see.
hmm a clock, a teapot and a bird.
do you have enough to equal 140 twenty six cent stamps?

oh- they did.
and they even came in there very own glassine envelope.

location? check!

under the big oak tree i found so many acorns it would make a squirrel jealous.
