Earlier this month Lauren and I escaped city life with our dear friend Grace, of Stripes & Sequins , for a weekend chock-full of sun and DIY. With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out - each so fabulous in their own unique way!

Last summer I told you how I was cutting up my wedding dress to make all kinds of fun (more useful) projects. I called it "I DO, re-done". It was supposed to be this big event and even had a button. Well as it turns out I'm not a big event person and although I love making things from the endless supply of fabric that is my wedding dress, I wasn't strict enough to do a month of just that. So here and there I share projects made from (yes my ACTUAL) my wedding dress.
