sunday seller | hip and clavicle

when i was planning my wedding, i had this idea that i could get our names cut from vinyl and adhered to the wall, like in an art exhibition. i kind of have a thing* for vinyl because i've worked in various art galleries and the vinyl titling and bylines on the wall really make an exhibition come together. however...we chose the distillery district, which was capital f fantastic, but the buildings are very historical so the issue of vinyl on the walls was...not met with great excitement. so i needed to find something just as good...

jacqueline of hip and clavicle has been featured all over the web and the recognition is well deserved. her little butterflies come in every colour of the rainbow and lend a sense of whimsy to any room. i just knew it would look adorable to have these little butterflies swerving in curves across the walls of our wedding venue. i chose black and white - our colours, and i remember opening the box a few days before the wedding with my parents. we were in total awe at their petiteness, uniqueness and fragility. they were so sweet i think my father even said "awe..."

the neat thing is that jacqueline didn't keep things strictly business between us, she was so kind and even gave me some much needed business advice. it was a pleasure purchasing her product. and that ladies and...ladies** is why you should buy handmade.

the first image is from my own wedding and the rest are products offered in her shop. she may or may not still be on vacation when this is posted but be sure to go back and check out her little butterflies!







* not just any old thing, but a serious thing. a real commitment.
** because let's be real, there are like, two men within the blogosphere and they certainly aren't reading my blog!
