I’m starting to think that everything in my wedding has been stolen off the pages of Weddingbee. The personalized ribbon, the wooden letters spelling out our name (not quite bought yet, but I want it!), and now… the ring orb. Thank you, Mrs. Bell Pepper, for showing me what I didn’t think I needed. And probably don’t, but eh, it’ll get more use as a coin holder than a ring pillow would!
Anyway, I saw the Scarlett Alley contest on Tuesday and entered. Assuming I wouldn’t win, I really didn’t care. I have my crappy Oriental Trading pillow ordered. Then, I came upon a post on the knot. Redshoegirl was trying to notify another knottie that she had received her orb. In her bio, redshoegirl also posted a picture in real life of how cute the box is and how beautiful the colors are.

So, realizing Impatience actually won the contest, (congrats!) I was smitten with the orb. Copper is one of our colors! And I need my something blue! Luckily, I have friends who can borrow it for their weddings, so it’ll get some use. I ordered the orb today, and called my mom to cancel the crappy pillow order. It didn’t match, anyway. The orb will be shipping tomorrow, hopefully it’s fast!
I had heard the orbs were too much work to make, and were being discontinued, anyone know about this? Anyway, I decided that it would be nice to lend this to a friend in Chicago who is getting married in September, thus resulting in her borrowed and blue! And of course, my blue. And new? Why not share the wealth that is this kickass orb!
Thanks again, Weddingbee for sucking me into something else!
