Garden Party Of My Dreams

Garden Party Of My Dreams

Garden Party Of My Dreams by joanniel featuring strappy heels

I'm not the party throwing type, but I'd like to have a gathering of some sort this Summer. If I could throw a garden party for close family and friends, this would be the theme. I love these colors. Enjoying some great food and drinks outside at Sunset, with candles all around the yard would surely make an impression. Me in that dress, of course. I better keep up my exercise routine. Especially if I want to have some of those cupcakes.

From The Archives

I was looking through some images of my past work and found a few of my all time favorite creations. I just wanted to share a few of them here. The most unique item I ever came up with was the ring on the top left. It is an actual dried blue rose with some multi-colored glitter. It turned out amazingly well. It is set under a glass dome and a vintage gold ring setting. The veins in the petals almost look like a scenery of tree branches in a night sky. Gorgeous! I only made two of them and I think I will make more. I have some pink petals currently drying but I really love the look of the blue petals. The turquoise hand painted wing earrings with Swarovski crystals are also a favorite. They are totally my style. The blue Swarovski necklace also turned out great, but then again you just can't go wrong with Swarovski crystals. They are such great quality and the shimmer is exquisite. Last but not least. My bird locket. This was my first attempt at image art and it was a bit of a challenge. Even so, I was happy with the result and the image looked wonderful in the vintage locket I chose for it.

Style, Glam, and Comfort.

You shouldn't have to sacrifice comfort for style, and yes, you can have it all. Flats are a great way to stay comfortable while looking your best. Crystals add a touch of glam and elegance. This day look is just right. Casual yet chic. Replace the jeans with a white pair of pants, add a vest or bolero and you can take this look to work or an evening out.
