Necklace porn.

Etsy is so dangerous.  Every time I get on there to search for something, I end up searching through pages for hoursssssss, going off into so many different categories, from 'horror necklace', to 'bloodstained bathmats', to 'taxidermy insect necklace'.  And then I look at the clock and two hours of my night off have passed by and I haven't left myself enough time to get through my four hours of Criminal Minds.  SIGH.  Such is life.

Anywhoser, I'm not even sure how I stumbled onto this awesome shop on Etsy called London's Gate, but I'm glad I did.  Their designs are creepy enough without being to Hot Topic gothy, and they're still classy and well made.  I just received this beauty in the mail:

I hate bugs.  They scare the shit out of me.  Mostly just the ones with giant jointed legs and weird eyes and feelers.  Ew.  But something about little sculpted bugs that can't jump on me are so H-O-T-T-T-T-T-T-T.  So when I saw this necklace, I had to have it and it only put me back 25 or so bucks.  And it's a locket so I can hide creepy things in there, like pieces of Chris' hair that I cut off while he's sleeping.


So the owner of London's Gate offered me a discount on next purchases since I'm getting married (getting married rocks!), so now I'm looking at this little beasty for me:
...and this one for my bridesmaids (I think it'll look adorable with the dresses I picked out for them):
I can't wait to buy more stuff from them.  They have necklaces made from snake vertebrae. WTF.  SOLD.  Go check their shop out asap.

Save the Date!




Finished!

Kind of.  I think I've got about 5 or so left to write out, but I'm so close.  Every single envelope has been handwritten, which sounds terrible, but I've been lagging and doing 20 or so a day for the last week.

I just got the rough but completely awesome draft of our invites.  They're so perfect.  I can't wait to see them in person.  I'll post those as soon as I get a final and as soon as Chris and I can actually figure out what time we're getting married.

One issue I'm not looking forward to is figuring out how to tell guests we're not doing a plus one.  I can't even say 'I'd LOVE to have everyone have a date there' because I really wouldn't love that.  I don't want a bunch of randoms at my wedding that I've never met, and I don't want to spend time meeting new people all night.  I just want to dance with my almost husband, take photo booth pictures, eat, and spend time with people I care about and people I want there.  Plus, everyone we're inviting knows AT LEAST one other person there, so we won't see any wallflowers.  I'd be fine verbally telling all of my guests that... but fuck.  It seems like it'll be so much harder in writing. Who knows how it'll come off?  Ugh.  Oh well.  Maybe I'll just slip in something like this:


I think that'll work out just fine.
