General Goodness

Photobucket

These illustrations by Penelope Dullaghan remind of the coming autumn. They have such a lovely quirkiness to them, and I love a good mary jane, don't you?

Also, we were so thrilled when Elizabeth featured the store yesterday over on Love is the Adventure! (it was a goody goody gumdrop kind of thrilled.) Elizabeth is adorable and sweet, and we love the sense of humor she brings to the blogging world. Stopping by her blog on any given day is a good idea: you will be instantly edified/ cheered up.

We were so thrilled to be even the smallest part of one of the greatest cancer fighting communities out there- Pelotonia. Cancer has touched so many of us here at Rose Bredl on a personal level, and we will do everything to support an organization which has one goal: to beat cancer. It is never too late/to early to give (every single dollar goes to funding cancer research)Please, please check them out and consider being a part of next year's race.

PS- we thought the video Outsider Entertainment made for Pelotonia's opening night was over-the-top amazing; emotional, heart-felt, and downright inspiring. (look for Mary at the very end)

We had such an amazing time celebrating the pending arrival of my nephew (due any day here!) Rose Bredl was the perfect setting; its already gorgeous and we had everything we needed on hand to throw a great party. I may never throw another shower/sprinkle anywhere else...

PS- sorry for the delay in posts. They may be sporadic for a time because my beloved mac BROKE!

I love these floral paintings by Michigan artist Margot Burian. They are part of her 30/30 project (30 paintings in 30 days) and are so simple and pretty. I would love one to hang in my bedroom, so sweet and pretty.

something we're sure about:

Photobucket
Mary has always pushed us at Rose Bredl to take our inspirations from all the wonderful places we find it: pinterest, the blogosphere, martha stewart etc, and turn these inspirations into something unique to our own purposes. "Thats so Rose Bredl" has become our favorite phrase.

A Friday Wedding

Remember those fabulous carnation poufs from last week? Those were for the adorable Donna's marriage to Jason! We were blown away by the bride's fun and flirty wedding style (lots of pink) and the bride herself was stunning. We had so much fun doing the flowers for this happy couple's wedding- check out more photos from their amazing photographer's blog, here.
