2011 was a joyous wild ride and we couldn't be more happy and thankful for all it 
brought and taught us.
Cheers to 2012!

Portland Bazaar

This past weekend Emerald Petals had the privilege of being invited to be part of Flutter & Eden's booth and Beam & Anchor's booth at the Portland Bazaar
It turned out to be a very pretty affair.
here's a sampling

A bit of yesterday, today and tomorrow...

Here, I'm just going to throw all this at you :)

~Just got some FABulous pictures from Tresa & Ted's wedding back on Sept. 10th.
You can check out more on Jessica Hill Photography's blog!

~Right now I've been up to my elbows making the last bit of Autumn pretty and Stand for Children's annual Beat the Odds fundraiser (more on this later).  
Having a hard time with the realization that I have less than a week left of gourds and pumpkins.... I may take the few I have left and give them a special home in our side yard :)

~We are so thrilled to be part of the ever growing push to SHOP LOCAL!
There are two fantastic pushes for next Friday ( Black Friday ) and Saturday.
First, Supportland is offering TRIPLE points both days, JOY!

Second, Emerald Petals and a whole bunch of wonderful shops are part of Little Boxes.  Which is offering awesome raffle prizes and 10% off when you show your receipt from one little box shop to another!

Phew! :)
