Think Outside of the Cake Box!

I love anything sweet, whether that be in a form of cakes, truffles, pies or whatever.  This will also give you alternative ideas of unique treats to serve guests at your wedding!  Think outside of the cake box!

Enjoy these beauties!  Hope it doesn’t make you too hungry this early in the morning.

Photo Library Update- Solution Found!

Remember my post on Thursday?

Bee Kim on Weddingbee just posted about a new Image Search Engine called TinEye.

“TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions. TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks.”

It is the coolest!  TinEye is relatively new and just building their database but be patient because this could be a lifesaver.

Enjoy!

If I could jet off to England right now…

I would buy this charming cottage and garden all day long.

MOORGATE COTTAGE, AYLSHAM NORFOLK

MOORGATE COTTAGE, AYLSHAM NORFOLK

For a mere £395,000 pounds, this place could be yours.

Here’s to the taste of Spring and to Friday Afternoons.

Cheers!

Photo Library Organization

Maybe you could help me on a little dilemma.

For years, whenever I find a photo online that that catches my eye, I always save it.  It’s a great source of inspiration and it’s fun to see how my taste changes year after year.

I have such a full photo library that I would love to use them in posting.  My problem is, is that I have NO idea where I found them! There is no way for me to look up the source of all these photos.  Due to legal issues and blogging, there is not way that I would post a photo without it’s source.

I have yet to find a productive tool that allows me to save a photo and document its location and where I found it {and save me time!!.}

Here is my process thus far:

I have folders on my desk top where I keep all of my photos.

Desktop

Next, I keep a journal where I individually categorize the website where I found the photo and assign it a number.

What else is a girl to do?

I have been going through all of my daily blogs from inception to present day, saving all of my favorite photos. {My god, has it taken so much time!}

I then rename the Photo and put it in it’s respective folder.
