[lovely midweek deliveries]

How thrilling is mail on your doorstep after a long day at work.
Yesterday we were greeted with two exciting packages.

The first was wedding invitation samples that I had ordered from Minted - a fabulous online stationary shop that Tina from Lady Chatterley's Affair had brought to my attention.

The second was the disc of our full engagement session from Sugar Blush Photography.
How lovely is the packaging...
It really is all about the details - they even have beautiful letterpress business cards.
If you fancy having a sticky at our engagement session, I blogged about it here and it was featured on Style Me Pretty here.
Hope you're all have a lovely week! Jx

[glass cloche curios]

A couple of weekends ago I was out and about shopping for a warm top for the chillier months ahead.
As per every shopping expedition, I gravitated towards homewares.
Glass bell jars or cloches were going for a steal.

How could I resist!
Now I just need to play around with what little curios I'd like to display.
Happy Monday everyone!

[farewell cuppa]

Mum is leaving on a jet plane bound for Italy with a side of France.
This morning we caught up for a last minute latte (and a warm slice of banana and blueberry bread - nothing like a second breakfast).
Bon voyage Jenny Jenny.

Where's your dream destination?

[happy wednesday night]

Happy State of Origin Wednesday!
Born in Melbourne, grew up in Albury, live and love Brisbane so I'm not terribly fussed about the whole thing (plus the fact that it's football).
However I do love the midweek catch-up with our fabulous friends!
And it's also given me the opportunity to bust out the new berry loafers - glass half full right there people!

[all done my deer]

He's all done.
Didn't manage to get him to the bride-to-be before she became a bride (she was a beautiful one at that!)
I painted him as an engagement gift.
I had taken my watercolours camping a few weeks ago in case the weather was unfavourable.
Lucky for me it pelted down all day which gave me plenty of in-tent painting time - not that my little deer had much to go.
Happy monday everyone!

[dreamy vintage style wedding]

Do yourself a favour and have a sticky beak at this gorgeous vintage style wedding on Style Me Pretty!
My favourite detail is the white cane peacock chairs for the bride and groom!
I do also love the little planter box-come-menu stand - so very clever!
The girl has taste too ;) ... that's the dress I wore for our engagement party on the left - the mixed bridesmaids dresses look fantastic!

Confession time: I've been spending a little time sitting on Style Me Pretty, waiting.
Today's the day our engagement shoot is meant to be featured.
How often is too often to refresh your browser?
Oh, and I just realised that we're officially five months to go!!!

[crunchy leaves in Armidale]

It was a long weekend here in Queensland.
The perfect opportunity for a road-trip down to chilly Armidale to visit a girlfriend.
The colour of the trees this time of year is breathtaking and there's nothing quite like rugging up and sharing a few reds in the warmth of a fireplace.
Here's a few shared Instagrams from our visit...

We had an ulterior motive - visiting this little possum.
Thanks little miss for a lovely weekend!
