My favourite photo

This photo just came through on my email of my Dad. He just looks so happy on his bike - I love it! Dad is second from the right.


Finally I have been inspired by this gorgeous headband from PiperRiley. Her shop is full of bright and wonderful pieces. This headband especially caught my attention because of the lovely bright pink!

Looking for inspiration

Today I am having so much trouble finding inspiration. I have been searching through Etsy for inspiration but nothing is jumping out at me. Oh Dear!

Some more wedding inspiration

Came across these 'wedding scatters' this afternoon. I am trying hard not to like pink things so much but these cute little flowers byABeSpokeTouch are very cute and hard to resist.

I am currently researching florists, celebrants and in the process of booking my photographer Andrew Maccoll oh how I love his work!


Congrats to the giveaway winner for this week: LemonJitters

Your lovely earrings will be on their way shortly.

The next giveaway will be updated in the next day so be sure to check back on my blog!

Thanks for all of your entries!

morning goodness

I came across this Etsy shop this morning and fell in love with this little character. She is made from vintage beads and I think she is adorable. Handmade by variation.
Have a great day. I am off to FOG tonight so I will give you my report when I get back!

Flowers, flowers and more flowers!

I have been admiring this shop for a couple of weeks and it seems that I can't get flowers and weddings out of my head. This photo is my favourite! Check out more flowers, flowers, flowers at SouthernGirlFlorals
Oh and by the way - if anyone knows of a good florist in Melbourne let me know!

Wedding inspiration

Now that the engagement party is done I am moving on to organising the wedding. It is booked for March next year so I do have some time up my sleeves (it's cold in Melbourne). But I think I need to start checking off some boxes. Here is a lovely shot of a Lily to inspire me - also one of my favourite names! Next thing to do is the dress but I am having too much fun thinking about the honeymoon.

I will keep you all updated with my progress and other beautiful wedding items that I come across on Etsy!

This shot was taken by Tali Schiffer-Ore and I think it is just beautiful - check out her shop full of gorgeous prints!

Elephant Party!

I came across this cute shop on etsy this week. Given that my sister has just had a baby I am loving all the baby clothes on Etsy and buying new things for little Ethan. Since I was little I have LOVED elephants so this is my favourite piece from ModernClassicKids.

Watching Lance return to the Tour De France and even the Tour Down Under is so inspiring that I am compelled to post. He is not only an amazing athlete but a fighter, a cancer survivor and a brave ambassador for his cause.
I find it hard to even begin to talk about my personal experience with cancer but I proudly wear my Livestrong arm band each day which not only reminds me of the fight against cancer but also reminds us that everyone is touched by it. Livestrong Lance.

Lovin' this!

I discovered this funky woven bead necklace during the week by beadsandbobs - I love the colour combination and the lovely textures in the beads!
