AB Designs - Frames for your Treasured Memories
A recent giveaway featured these gorgeous frames from AB Designs and now thru the end of July you can save 10% on your order with coupon code BWED0709. I've received one of these frames and while the photos of the frames online are stunning, it's simply breathtaking to see one in person. The craftsmanship is superb and instead of an easel back, they have 2 wooden dowels/pegs that go into holes on the backsides bottom to prop up the frame. Love this concept! You can also hang this frame from the wall if you wish as well.


A Wedding Video - one of the best I've seen
This wedding entrance video has been circling the twitterverse like crazy this week and yesterday morning I received an email with a link to it from my friend Karlene {whose DIY wedding I featured here, here and here last week}. For those of you that haven't seen it yet, I just have to share. I LOVE IT!!!

Now, of course this isn't something that could be done at every place of worship, but if you can, why not go for it? I would have loved to be in attendance at the reception if this was how the wedding ceremony started. I can't help but smile, laugh and dance along when watching the video.
