Tussie Mussies


As yesterday's post revealed: I have left my usual haunts of Washington State for a brief visit to Indiana. The heat and sun are definitely turning me a characteristic shade of pink. Whenever I'm in really hot weather I always feel the temptation to moan "I'm melting, I'm melting" like the witch in The Wizard of Oz (movie, not book).

I'm here for a big-time event with much of my extended family. Tomorrow you'll get the details on what that event is, but for now I'll just share one of the activities we've been doing in preparation. We aren't making tussie-mussies, although it would have been awesome and difficult to follow the language of flowers. Instead we just made pretty bouquets with a mix of different blooms. I have received special permission to share some pictures of friends and family for the special occasion; the smiling blonde is one of my (usually camera shy) sisters.

  4. Aw, I definitely see the resemblance between you and your sister (well, that's a given)! Don't you find Indiana to be pretty humid? You seem to be dealing with the weather well clothes-wise, that dress is adorable on you!

  17. What could the event be? A wedding maybe? Heheh.

    It's so cool to see one of your sisters and your dress is just perfect. The color, design and cut. Lucky you!

  18. I can definitely see the family resemblance with your sister around the eyes and in the smile. But other than that, I think you are two distinct beings with separate looks. You're both adorable, however!

    This is a great dress and shoes. I especially love the shoes. The look sturdy and comfortable, but also really chic at the same time.

    I hope you're escaping this crazy humidity and heat wave we're getting out east here! It was a sauna this morning when I woke up. A/C was working over time. It was 86F when I left for work. Crazy.

  26. I can see clearly that that pretty girl is your sister, the smile is the same :) and many face traits resembles you!
    the dress is really pretty and so are the sandals,

  27. Ooh. Hot, hot Indiana. I was in Illinois in May and it was sooo hot already! I used to live out that way and don't know now how I ever bore it (though the east coast, where I currently reside, is undergoing a massive heat wave). Hope you succeed in staying cool! I love your dress and that you managed to get in some field shots. The bouquets you're making are gorgeous; could be for a wedding? And you and your sister do look quite alike; she's so cute!

  31. Your nails always looks so great! It would be awesome if you'd do a tutorial on how you get them to always look good and on how you mix your own nail polish.
    I got inspired one day, but it just turned out a bit of a mess.
