Dinner with the Mad Scientist ll and Brooklyn Limestone Feature

Hello Brooklyn Limestone readers, and those still hanging around these parts! I’ve been a reader for several years and Stefanie’s decorations|party ideas knock my socks off, and I look forward to her Halloween posts with great anticipation! When she contacted me about a feature after I left a recent comment on the blog, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough.

We’re continuing the Dinner with the Mad Scientist theme from two years ago. Most of the usual suspects have returned and we’ve collected a few new pieces since. The previous post has information on many of the details we repurposed this year. I have also updated the Aged Specimen Jar Label DIY post.

Michael came up with the idea to add some Sharpie solution to the dark green I was using for the large specimen jars and the effect is delightfully eerie. We also played with a black light behind the jars while taking a few of the photos. (more…)

Painter’s Tape DIY Contest Finalist

A couple weeks ago I sent in my entry for the Painter’s Tape DIY Contest. I was thrilled to receive an email that my project was selected as one of the top 20 finalists (psst… it’s the painted planter)!

All the entries in the groupings are incredible and wow, I’m honored to be included among such great work. Please go look at the Group 1 and vote for your favorite from that group.

Thanks again, D*S and I’m already planning a project from Group 1.

I got to know Rachel through the OBT (Offbeat Bride Tribe) while we were both planning our weddings. She and her husband Tom are pretty badass. Our wedding was on Beltane and theirs was the following Halloween. Well, today I read that they’re featured today on Offbeat Bride.

‘Day After’ photos

or…
“We went to Dragon*Con and all we got were these stupid photos” – Stacey Bode.

It could almost be the ‘day after’ since we were married on a Friday and these were taken on a Saturday…four months later. :)

When Stacey and I started hatching our plans we talked about several locations, but she kept coming back to Historical Oakland Cemetery. Stacey has been itching to use this particular spot and knew me well enough to know that I’d go right along with her. I’m no stranger to participating in photo shoots at the cemetery and the last 5 years I lived in Atlanta were just a block and a half away. In fact, their annual fall Victorian celebration, Sunday in the Park is this Sunday, October 4.

I made a new bouquet for the shoot and was crushed when our florist told us that neither ranunculus’ or peonies would be available. I surprised myself by choosing the antique roses. They were stunning and for the most part, they held up well traveling from Charleston to Atlanta and the 3 days between pick-up and shoot. I combined them with the variegated pittosporum, and a lotus pod. I brought my feathers to use, but in the end we decided to keep it simple. I wrapped the stems in the same moss sheet/ribbon/acorn combo that I used for the wedding. I also had to remake Michael’s boutonniere because I dropped the original the week of the shoot and the wheat broke apart. Thankfully it took me a fraction of the time to make the second bout.

Stacey, as always, did a spectacular job capturing our personalities. I’ve known her for a very long time and she thrives in working outside the box. Her creativity never ceases to amaze or inspire me. When people used to ask me what I’d miss most about leaving Atlanta, I’d always say, “My friends, Gail K. Fabrics, and DeKalb Famer’s Market”. Stacey could be her own category.
