The Ode to the White Rose

One of my dear friends Jennifer is marrying her beau of 21 years (that's no type-0 yes 21 years) on September 19, 2009. Together, Jen and I are creating “roses” from clay. The roses will adorn the tables placed perfectly among the food and the drinks and tables that will be strategically placed around the pool patio area. Here are some photos (the whole process) and will post pics of the final “look” on the day of the wedding reception.

White roses represent innocence and purity and are traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings. The white rose is also a symbol of honor and reverence, and white rose arrangements are often used as an expression of remembrance.

I also included a photo of the “party favors” I made for her Bridal Shower. That’s right, birds with roses and small dishes with birds and roses too. If you haven’t guessed already she’s an avid lover of birds (mainly chickens she has 8) and roses! Oh and anything turquoise.

Random Curiosities (that are inspiring me this week)

Randomness is a concept with somewhat disparate meanings in several fields. It also has common meanings which may have loose connections with some of those more definite meanings. The OED defines "random" thus:

Having no definite aim or purpose; not sent or guided in a particular direction; made, done, occurring, etc., without method or conscious choice; haphazard.
