kmrbridal. Today I am sharing the beautiful wedding of Lisa and Matt who married

Today I am sharing the beautiful wedding of Lisa and Matt who married this summer. I had the honour of designing and making Lisa's bespoke lace veil. This stunning veil was made from a delicate ivory lace and was inspired by a family heirloom. Huge congratulations to you both! Beautiful photos courtesy of Scott Trickett Photography. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos Lisa. Our talented friend @hollowmeadowsflowers provided the lovely bouquet. #kmr #kmrbridal #kmrbride #bridal #bridaldesigner #dressmaker #maker #makermade #handmade #heirloom #familyheirloom #veil #laceveil #tradition #wedding #weddingday #weddinginspo #mrandmrs #bespoke #bespokebride #sheffield #madeinsheffield #madeinengland #madeinbritain #seamstress #realbride

Feels so good to finally be able to wear #mygrandmotherskimono. As you may have read in previous posts, my grandmother was a stylish lady who liked to sew her own clothes and had many kimonos. When she passed away about twenty years ago, her kimonos were handed down to me. I’ve held onto them because of my attachment to her, but also because I love nice textiles and hoped that one day, I could make something out of the precious fabric to honor her memory. It took quite some time to neatly unpick the pieces (as you can see from my exhausted assistant, Sophia with the unpicker!). As a winter piece made of wool, it was enjoyed by many moths over the years, so there was much inspection and strategic cutting to avoid the holes. Swipe to see the whole progression from Kimono to jacket, laying out on coral rocks by the Okinawa sea on a sunny day 🌞 #familyheirloom #kasuri #kimono #kimonoremake #upcycled #upcycledfashion #memade #memadewardrobe #makersgonnamake #sewing #sewist #grainlinestudio #tamarackjacket #indiepatterns #絣 #着物 #着物リメイク #着物リフォーム

A stunning burgundy velvet cloth with tarnished brass buttons. Detailed arms of carved cherry wood to rest upon and tell stories. Passed on from generation to generation this noble chair has beauty and grandeur. A special piece of art that will be passed on again and again. I find inspiration from so many things but the next ONE BY MARK OWEN piece is extremely special and is an amazing representation of antiquity. Get ready! #burgundyvelvet #antiquity #inspirationandartistrybecomeone #art #nobility #cherrywood #customjewelry #familyheirloom #oneofakindjewelry #onebymarkowen

My heart has been heavy the last day & a half as I lost my grandfather the other day. I skipped putting my village out the last 2yrs, as I had gotten rid of the long table it always went on. However, with him in the hospital & knowing it was most likely my last Christmas with him, I decided to squeeze it on a smaller table in his honor. He actually made every one of these glass houses & figurines by hand, himself many, many years ago & my dad grew up with it displayed in their home. My mom continued the tradition, & I asked to take it over in my home the year I got married. So very thankful I have this beautiful momentum to keep a piece of him with me always, but it is nothing compared to the amazing memories I have of being spoiled & loved by him. ❤️ If you are lucky enough to have grandparents still alive, show them some extra love & attention this Christmas, because you never know when it will be the last one you have with them. I was lucky enough to have my very, seemingly, healthy granddad come stay a long weekend with me a week before he went into the hospital. Thankful for that precious time & memories #grandparents #restinpeace #abetterplace #christmasvillage #village #christmasdecor #decorating #handmade #keepsake #familyheirloom #grandpa #grampy #love #family #christmas #appreciation #cherishthetime #designblog #lifestyle #blogger #lostinthelowcountry

Awesome Movie Proposal.⁠ ⁠ One of the most thrilling proposals in recent Australian history, took place, not in Brisbane, but in Mount Keira.⁠ ⁠ Liam Cooper arranged for a special screening at the Greater Union Shellharbour Cinema which let him ask his girlfriend Amy Smith to marry him in front of all of their friends and family.⁠ ⁠ He’d created his own movie to pop the question and even written his own score for it! ⁠ ⁠ Now, I am not suggesting that you go this far when you ask your bride to marry you but there are some good ideas that you can find in movies for how to pop the question. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #ringmanwingman #bespokejewellery #customjewellery #burgundybespokejewellers #familyheirloom #ringdesign #brisbanejeweller #goldcoastjeweller #uniquejewellery #engagementringideas #engagementideas #wingman #engagementwingman #secretsquirrel #wecreate #weddinginspo #showusyourrings #ringselfie #perfectproposal #proposalideas #proposal #mylove #brisbaneweddings #goldcoastweddings #secretmensbusiness #howtopropose #brisbanebrides #customdesign⁠

Based on Bha

Villinai Otha Puruvam - By Shri Subramania Bharathiyar . Based on Bhairavi Raagam (Carnatic Bhairavi), it is sung differently by Carnatic music practitioners. However, the maternal side of my family did not learn Carnatic music, and so, it got passed down in a more naattupuram-style. If you ask my great grandmother, she will say this is how it is supposed to be sung :) . I'd say this is closer to Smt DK Pattamal's style of singing the Kavadi Chindhu, yet not quite that. . . . . . . . . . . #music #folk #folkart #folkmusic #naattupuram #classicalmusic #indianclassical #carnaticmusic #carnatic #carnaticiscool #bharathiyar #mahakavi #subramanyabharathi #raagam #bhairavi #villinaiothapuruvam #singing #vocals #tanpura #asharp #familyheirloom

Our tree, once primarily stocked with vintage ornaments I’ve swiped from my family (of origin) over the years, is now HEAVILY sprinkled with kid-made or kid-collab adornments. If you have an excess of tiny kid/family photos around (i.e. photo booth pics from @townla or Instax shots) and corrugated cardboard boxes give one of these a try! **********🧡🎄⭐️❄️********** The first one (pictured) is 2 pieces of cardboard (cut in the exact same festive shape with the unfinished/interior side facing outwards) with a little frame cut out of the center of the top shape to exhibit the pic (you’ll get more precision with a utility knife but sharp scissors will work too). The bottom shape also would need a little pinhole that you can stuff a string/pipe cleaner through - which you can do before you decorate it. Then you just take some watered down Elmer’s glue and brush it on the cardboard and adhere little bits of tissue paper or newspaper (something thin) on the cardboard in 1-2 layers (more than that would probs warp the cardboard too much) and then brush another gluey layer on top (it’s like a mix of mod-podge/papier-mâché). When it dries, you can tape in your tiny pic and either glue dot/double stick tape the top and bottom (now fully decorated and dried) cardboard shapes together. It looks more legit if you wrap the paper around the edges & inside of frame (second pic for ref) **********💚🌴🌟⛄️********** The next one is white model magic stuck onto a gingerbread person shape (also corrugated cardboard) with some sparkly gems and a Pom Pom stuck into the modeling clay before it dried. I put out several pre-cut shapes of cardboard, the model magic and various gems/sequins/bling, and this was one of the results. The kiddos can do this one TOTALLY solo and it’s low mess 🙌 **********💜🌲🌈💫********** The last one is, YOU GUESSED IT, a pinecone covered in tempera paint and glitter with a string tied around the base. It’s messy + fun!

If you’ve seen me around since September 5th, you’ve probably seen this bright blue gorgeousness on my finger. While it’s downright breathtaking, the story behind it is actually far more beautiful. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You see, my mother received this from my dad the day she graduated Nursing school. It was a very monumental day in her life as well as our family. This blue ring signified accomplishment, love + pride and as a little girl I had just fallen head over heels. I remember my mom saying one day it would be mine when it was her time to leave this world.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Fast forward to a few weeks before our 10 year vow renewal in Greece, I worked up the courage to ask my parents if my husband could give me this blue ring because it had meant so much to me. I wanted to pass on it’s symbolism of accomplishment, love + pride thus creating a family heirloom. Without hesitation, they wholeheartedly agreed. My mom said it would mean more to live and watch me enjoy it than die and never witness it’s beauty being shared.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now while this ring is now a part of my love story, it will one day be passed down to one of my sons. I am forever grateful to both my parents for honoring me, my marriage and my future son’s love story 🖤⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 💍 Reset by our friends at @randrjewelers ⁣⁣ 📷 @thanosasfis ⁣⁣

I want to share an artifact that was gifted to me recently and now lives in my safe. This is a letter that my Aunt Taffy (YES, OF COURSE I have an aunt Taffy!! I had an aunt Bootsy too! Wanna fight about it??) wrote to my grandparents telling on my dad. Evidently, they went out for a date, leaving my dad (who would have been 13 on this date) in charge of his little sister, Taffy (8 or 9?). This is her testimony against my dad 😂. . . “November 24, 1958 Dear mom, Just in case I am in bed when you get home I’d like to tell you what I went through tonight with your son, but I didn’t say one thing. 1. He left the freezer open for five minutes 2. he got my medal and swunging [sic] it around Which you will find on the top of this 3. We got the cat and swung him and chased him. He scared to death of him. 4. He was shaving for half an hour. 5. He got the Philadelphia [non-Legible] and balancing it on his head. I’d like you to look it over. 6. He was throwing a statue in the air and hit the ceiling with it. It’s a wonder it’s not broken it probably is by now Your loving daughter -Taffy” . . #familyheirloom #tattletail

Still working. Always working. A trip to #sanantonio yesterday to restock my inventory and find just the right glass for a special order that will be going out in Jan to #newyork . Darker pinks are hard to come by, but guess what iridescent pink I stumbled across and brought home! Super excited to come up with just the right design. I completely sold out of my #chimes and #spinners this past weekend. I spent 3hrs sanding a 6ft piece of #cedar yesterday. It's been cut into lengths and sanded again. I hope to have a few ready to go early next week. #ayeneedtoart #stainedglass #localartists #shoplocal #smallbusiness #womanownedbusiness #familyheirloom #giftsthatlastalifetime #canyonlaketx #newbraunfelstx #homedecor #yardart #uniquegifts

I love these vintage die cut deer ❤️ They belonged to my great-grandma-Bula, aka Grandma Boo, and the deer are labeled in her sweet script with “dasher” “prancer” and “vixen”. I imagine she had the other five reindeer at one point too but I’m grateful her son (my grandpa) found these when she passed and knew I would love them. #myvintagecottagestyle #hohohoitsavintagechristmas #festivefridayvintage #vintagechristmas #diecutchristmas #christmasreindeer #bhghowiholiday #countrylivingchristmas #retroroulette #christmasdecorations #spokanechristmas #familyheirloom
