A Rubies and Rust Update

Cindy stopped in to visit a couple of weeks back, and says she had a great year at the barn.  What barn?  The wedding barn known as Rubies & Rust, of course! (Click over there:  rubiesandrust.com, or click on the Rubies & Rust photo in the column to the right of this blog, for older posts from this site.)  Cindy says the barn is already booked for several of the weekends in the spring through autumn of 2013, so if you're getting married this year and don't yet have your venue chosen, scoop this one up quick!  Not only will you get the most charming space for a vintage or country style wedding, you'll be working with one of the most charming and warm-hearted women I know.

Photographer Danica Donnelly took these photos, which I can totally appreciate for many reasons, including the fact that to an amateur like me, this kind of space can be tricky to capture.  Her website is danicadonnelly.com

All kinds of couples love the quirky atmosphere of this barn with chandeliers! 

...and the guests love it, too!
What a gorgeous venue, huh?

And now, here's a shot of the constantly working Cindy, down on the main floor, where my little point and shoot catches the action.  Not exactly breathtaking photography, but this woman is the heart and soul of it all, and you might only ever see her in business clothes and think she leaves all the work to little minions.  As if!  Of course the main floor doesn't look much like this anymore, since Cindy is an endless whirlwind of creativity, and I snapped this shot a couple of summers back.  You better check out the Rubies & Rust website for the latest photos!

Slow down and grab a step stool?  So many ideas, so little time!  This woman gets stuff done like nobody I know!
Me?  This week, I'm working on the technicolor dreamscape mural featured in previous blogposts, more illustrations for the kid's book Fruit and Veggies Aplenty, and oh yeah, in my "spare time" putting together the spring issue of 365 Being.  If you are inspired by the things and people on this blog, our glossy, full (to bursting) color bookazine will give you tips and tricks and endless inspiration for creating not just the home of your dreams, but the life of your dreams, all bound up in four beautiful books every year.  365being.com is where you can subscribe or purchase single issues.  It's even more amazing in print, according to our readers, but you can get it in PDF, if you prefer.

And, hey, if you're inspired to say something here, SAY IT!  I'd love to hear your ideas, answer your questions, or have a conversation with you, and it's super easy to comment, by simply clicking the comment counter at the bottom of this post.
