these bouts were made for wearin'

You'd think after typing the word boutonniere at least 100 times, I'd learn how to spell it correctly. But no. My solution is just to shorten it to bout and rely on spell-check to catch my blunders. I'm also still learning the difference between affect and effect, so maybe I grammar and spelling isn't my strong suit.

Anyway, I'm sweet on these bouts I made for a lovely, late-summer bride. I think this color combination is so fun and lighthearted. Really, it's one of those pallets that fits just about all year-round, in my opinion! Plus, who can get enough of that red-and-white Martha Stewart twine? So what if I just ordered 300 feet of it...

Happy Monday!

On another note, today is my first day back to work after a lovely summer vacation. I am thankful for these past few months off, anxious about the coming school year, grateful for a job, and looking forward to having the first few weeks under my belt.

I too have trouble with affect and effect. I fear I always will. Oh well.

Hope you have a great school year! :)

Yes bout is much easier than boutionerre- or however you spell it.
Gosh those french words are tricky tricky.
