A Renewal of Vows

Mom and Dad renewed their vows up on a lookout point backed by the Sierra Buttes this past Saturday.  It was a snowy, rocky adventure getting to and from the point but the point itself was absolutely gorgeous and there couldn't be a more perfect place to celebrate their life together.  I don't yet have the photos from the photographer but I thought I would share a few of the photos that I took.

In classic Mansfield-Family tradition mom's dress is handmade only mom took it a step further and even made the fabric!  It's almost entirely nuno felted with silk/cotton voile and white merino wool.  Family heirloom laces and trims were felted right in.

Jill made mom's jewelry, Lisa kept us all very well fed and Ben played the guitar and Daniel, in the High Hand Flower Market, did the flowers. It was a lovely day with lovely people - I can't wait to share the professional photos with you!

Yay for walls!

Dad and his crew came in last week and whipped out some more walls for our little shop.  They will hopefully help in keeping the heat in the shop this winter plus they gave us SO much more room to hang our fiber art pieces.  A BIG thank you to Scott of High Hand for doing this for us.  We're one step closer to having a ceiling and being climate controlled - woo hoo!  :-)
