Gretel and I

I came across these amazing doily coasters on Oh Joy! the other day and immediately fell in love with them. Aren't they sweet? I perused the shop, Gretel, and also found a plethora of other pieces I wouldn't mind owning...

White Cake Lace Coasters $19


Large yellow and White Omaggio Vase $98
Annie Antique Toy Pillow $22
Lovebird Rectangular Tray $32
Ursa Minor $85


I wonder if it would be rude that instead of using a traditional registry, I just gave people my blog link? After all, it's like one big wish list. Tacky you say? Eh. Maybe. Wouldn't be the tackiest thing I've ever done.

I think it would be marvelous... plus, wouldn't you rather have people buy gifts from fabulous little shops and support small business rather than buy random applicances from superstores for your wedding??

And I love this little shop... off to spend some more time there!

I think that is a wonderful idea...Besides the worst thing as a friend or family member is buying the bride and groom something they will never use. This way you really get what you want, not necessarily need...but wanting is better...right :) You rock by the way! I heart your sense of style... thanks for the inspirations!

The whole concept of a gift registry was once thought to be rude but, now most take it as easy menu rather than an obligation. Folks really do want to give you what you want.

So, yes...offer your link.

And still register at a few places that make the most aesthetic sense to you. Don't make then have to guess.
