Do you see my header?

Well this is the lucky lady who's family pieces, love and ideas inspired me.

I have just received the most wonderful email from her... I'm sure she wont mind me quoting it to my wonderful blogger friends....

"I absolutely adored my bouquet and I had so many compliments, my guests were fascinated by the history within it and the memories it held for me. I rarely let go of it - when I did it was next to our brownies/cake and then next to the guest book in the evening so it could be admired by all!
I always knew that it meant a lot to me (and always will) but I hadn’t appreciated just how much comfort it would give me when I was faced with no family there on the day. I held my bouquet so tightly as I walked down the aisle for although they weren't actually physically there with me, I was holding onto things that bound us, and our memories, together. So I wasn't alone after all.

I can safely say my bouquet was definitely my most favourite thing about my wedding day and the bit that I will treasure and guard for the rest of my life (well, that and my husband of course!!). It is now proudly sat on our sideboard next to a wedding portrait and a dried hydrangea from our top table flowers. It twinkles in the light but is far away enough from the long haired moggie to be out of harm's way! I can't thank you enough for it, I loved it so much and will continue to as I grow old and grey with my new hubbie."

I really don't have to say anymore...I'm touched by her words...and incredibly proud.
Thank you Jude x

I am so honoured and lucky to have found the lovely Magpie to make my bouquet. The love, care and attention that went into it was incredible - I trusted you with so much of my heart and memories and you didn't let me down. You have a very special talent and I have no doubt it will continue to bloom and grow. Jude xxx
