A Boot in the Ear

When my dad was younger, he lived with his older sister, her husband and kids - my aunt, uncle and cousins - for a short time. One evening, he was getting ready for a formal event and my cousin K was looking on as he talked with my aunt about pinning a boutonniere on. K said "yeah uncle Jamie, you NEED a boot in the ear!" Kids say the darnedest things!

The wedding craftiness continues so I thought I'd share my latest project...feather boutonnieres!

With the help of my friend, S, and my mom, we made 7 of these up at the cottage this past weekend. I kind of made it up as I went along but they all turned out really nicely. Another personal touch to our special day that I can check off the to-do list.
