Wedding Favors

I have been busy working on some boxes. Here are some wedding favor boxes...each is designed with the Wedding colors in mind and are personalized with the Happy Couple's names and wedding date on the bottom.

I've painted some shells that would look dandy scattered around the tables.....If you are getting married and would like some beautiful and original favors, why not contact me at Don't forget my shop where you can find cake toppers and bridal gifts!

A Beautiful Daffodil Weekend

First there was this daffy little Pug who came to visit us at Nantucket Bookworks
with his friend, a winner of the best hat contest! I agree...they are both stunning!

Flowers from Flowers on Chestnut

Wedding boxes

I am working on some boxes for favors at a wedding. They are little wooden boxes painted with the wedding colors and signed on the bottom with the couple's names and date of the wedding. I am working on a catalog of wedding favors to offer brides and grooms. I am also taking a copperplate calligraphy course...but it's mostly practice!
Here's a pretty fashion site and blog that I found today... A beautiful spring day here in Nantucket...xo

Evan B Harris

Evan B Harris is a self taught artist from the backwoods of Oregon. I love his work. You can see oodles of doodles here
I especially like his work relating to mermaids and nautical themes, but this is nice, too!
