No Sew Drop Cloth Bedskirt

Hello again, friends. Two posts in one week!  I think this is a record for us.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Four years ago (has it really been four years?!), Bryan and I got married in the little historic city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. We had only visited the island once before with a very special friend, and fell in love with the Plaza, the old cathedral dating back to 1670, and the historic mansion, Castillo Serralles, overlooking it all. Neither of us had any ties to Puerto Rico, but after that visit, we were hooked and knew it would be the...
