Nail Polish to the Rescue

Just a quick one today, to show how I saved myself a trip to the store...(and maybe you too, one day).

I ran out of little pink brads, so I brainstormed and came up with...


To put onto all of these...

YADA, YADA, YADA... : ) Have a good one!

P.S. If you missed the fun "engagement photo shoot" Post below (because of technical difficulties), I think I have the problem fixed.

Okay smarty pants...when God passed out creativity did he give you extra? I think so...I love the way you make me smile.

What a week...running after all the seniors has me loosing weight which is a good thing! I've been to the fair, on a boat, the library, shopping trips with them from here to Seattle and beyond and out to eat and in to eat...Pretty much exhausted coming home. Those 90 yr olds are hot to trot! A second wind bunch for sure!

Not just for painting the nails . . . Great tip! Wasn't it you, ML, who changed some of the color on a tea pot using nail polish? Ingenious!

The cake topper is FABULOUS! And the pics from the photo shot are wonderful. I bet everyone in your family is just busting with anticipation for this wedding.

Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great Sunday!
