Change of Address...

Just a quick note to let anyone who was possibly following this particular blog know, even though I highly assume I will be sending this out into the void to no one, I have had a change of address. I will now be posting all that is dear to me on dear-to-me.

Please come take a look! I've also given the blog a make over ("Clueless" style!!.... without the clogs and tartan).

Lewis wants to be all Daryl on our wedding day...

Can you really blame him?? Daryl Braithwaite had it right with "Horses"!

Lewis has been saying (pretty much demanding) since we became engaged that he desperately wants to have a horse in our wedding pictures. I think he's leaving the technical side of acquiring said horse up to me. I adore the idea as I love horses in general, but am finding it hard to conjure up any ideas of how we're going to pull this off. If anyone has any tips (...horses?) on how to help, please let me know. In the meantime, here's a little inspiration. Have to say, I think these pictures are divine.

Tick tock... The actual clock kind, not Kesha (... so fabulous... I'm just saying).

So maybe now that I have a dress organised, and I will actually have something to wear on the day, I am feeling a lot less "knotty" and a lot more excited for our wedding! Everything really seems to be coming together, and I really thought that there would never be a point where I could actually say that in our little less than a year of planning.

My mum and I went op shopping on the weekend to find some more vases, jugs, platters etc for the table "centrepieces" and for serving, and we seriously had THE best time. Letting her and I loose in thrift and antique stores proved to be a) very productive b) a little crazy, and as a result  c) scary for those around us and, if I'm being honest, us at times and d) highly enjoyable.  We were practically skipping out of stores, arm in arm, giddy with excitement, and when we returned home ("Hail! The conquering heroes!!!" - Genie), we were seriously chuffed with ourselves, and proceeded to unload it all for Lewis and Duncan (my brother) to admire! Which, to their merit, they did so very convincingly.

I desperately want to take photos of some of the antique pieces I've found in Paddington over the last few months, and also the new ones found on the weekend, but I'll probably end up being slack and you won't see anything until I put up wedding photos! Lazy, I know. If it happens, I'll be terribly surprised, but you never know! I may just find that little bit more time up my sleeve for creativity.

53 days until The Wedding

Death by tea cups. The best kind... Although probably painful.
