so exciting


My Dad made another amazing fireplace for me... we had a good chuckle the other day because this is the third fireplace mantle he has crafted for me, if you count the one in the little house! This one is simply amazing, made of red oak and stained to match my soon-too-arrive cabinetry for the adjacent wall. I love the dentil moulding...



... and see the dragonfly he made for the crest in the middle? It's made from the remnants of the titanium he used to make Ben's wedding ring(s). He made multiples of those of course, too. The joke at the wedding was what if the father-in-law-jeweler who made the son-in-law's ring put some sort of tracking device in it?




Also, my wedding photographer, Rachel Neville, a talented photographer from New York City put one of my bridal photos on her website! Check it out here! I have a black and white version in my family gallery framed in the smallest shadow box I ever found. That's not my real ring in there, just a replica. Don't panic. The real one has a tracking device in it.
