It’s been a trying month: my MacBook completely died, taking my files with it because I’d not backed up (lesson horribly learnt there…), and the wifi and connection problems have sent my hair white. But, I’m soldiering on. I will not be beaten by technology. This isn’t Terminator 2 – technology is still an annoyance rather than an apocalyptic threat, so I can’t be too namby pamby about it all.
Flora gown by ktjean on Etsy. Phototgraphy by the brilliant Kym Ventola. I see a nod to the Wild West in this one, and it makes me want to whip up the skirts and dance! I’m a bit partial to this sort of behaviour, mind, and may have spent a good portion of my own wedding night disco doing exactly this. This design will be discontinued before the end of the year, I’m told, so I’d get in there quick if this is your perfect dress!
Super gorgeous and quirky crocheted cake toppers and favours from Cherry Time on Etsy. I love creator Mojca’s cute characters and sugary colours: so cheery and celebratory! She also makes baby toys, which I’ll be featuring soon on my other blog, Oh Bambini.
Polka dots and yellow – what a summery combination (I must really miss the summer because I’m going on about it in September!). This is the beautiful ‘Sarah’ invitation by Myrtle and May. Makes you want to go and get a nice Pimm’s and chill on the lawn.
I love this stationery! In fact, I love Julie Farrell’s entire range in her Etsy shop, Odd Lot Emporium, and her website, Odd Lot Weddings. You’ve got rockabilly, steampunk, vintage, tattoos and Dia de los Muertos. Love, love, love.
This is just the sweetest gown. It’s all feminine and youthful, and it looks amazing with the candyfloss pink petticoat and hot pink shoes. It’s from Miss Brache on Etsy, whose shop is full of rockabilly and pin-up styles. These beautiful pictures are by Danielle Capito, whose website is just full of the sunniest and happiest wedding photography.
I love Etsy success interviews!
I love discovering new blogs and the adorable people behind those blogs. One such gem is Jenny, who is one half of Everyday is a Holiday, which is my new absolute favourite blog!! It’s filled with the beautiful, the arty, the craftsy, recipes, DIY tutorials, and a little diamond of a post here by the love of Jenny’s life and co-blogger, Aaron. His post will make you have faith that good men exist out there.
Stuff and Things
Reclaim the weekend. Yes and yes!
Things & Ink issue 4. Loving the Ophelia front cover.
A look at 12 female tattoo artists showing at Under Her Skin on Creative Boom. Under Her Skin is the exhibition celebrating female tattoo culture, and it also marks the first anniversary of Things & Ink. A bit of a must-see.
Catch you later!
