Beautiful storm here in the high desert.  Time to snowshoe, feed the birds, bake cookies, and cozy up to the wood stove.

Vintage Wedding

This couple used the brocade pattern from the bride's dress for the canopy on their Wedding Certificate.  The design was filled in with pastels of their wedding colors.  Their rings formed the focus between their signatures.

Congratulations, Guth and Jess!!!!
