my monday...

This is what my monday looked like. Lots of lovely things waiting to be turned into pretty clutches. Oh and some yummy little heart shaped chocolates to help ease into the new week!
Vintage doilies, vintage brooches and fabric flowers mean no mondayitis for me.

Today was a bit of a stressful day, trying to get a million and one things finished. It was also my 29th birthday so I did manage to squeeze in a nice lunch with loved ones and a pink cupcake and cup of tea. Yum!

It was a bit strange as it's the first birthday that I have not spent the whole day with the Mr. since we got together (when I was 16!). Birthdays without him , it turns out, are not as fun.

But it was fun when there was a knock at the door and a nice lady presented me with a gorgeous bunch of flowers with a sweet note from my man. Isn't having flowers delivered divine?

I didn't have a chance to take a photo of them but they remind me of the gorgeous flowers I carried on my wedding day so thought I would post a pic of those instead.

'That Vintage'

Today I noticed I had a blog follower by the name of Sophie Hill. I clicked on her profile and then through to her blog and discovered a gorgeous Tassie resident who creates the most divine jewellery, much of it from Tasmanian myrtle wood, under her label 'That Vintage'.
If you like, you can check out her online shop.

A spot of upcycling...

How lovely is this table?

Upcycled from a vintage suitcase and table legs, it's the perfect place to store photos and keepsakes.

Unfortunately it's all the way over in Canada - but it serves as some wonderful upcycling inspiration nonetheless.

{twin set} gets homely

Yay! My favourite vintage clothing label, {twinset} has just introduced a range of homewares. Now I can buy vintage teapots and dresses in the one spot. Love.

Powering through...

Haven't I been a quiet little blogger lately? I am trying to soldier on through my bridal orders and not expire in the heat.
I will be trying to list some 'ready to ship' bridal and bridesmaids clutches over the coming weeks so that there is a selection for brides who don't have time to wait for custom orders. I hate having to say no to orders because there is not enough time!
But I can usually squeeze most people in, so if you're after custom clutches, drop me a line!

Pretty as a picture...

Today I am loving the photography by Yvette Inufio. So dreamy and lovely.

Moving...gotta love it...

Tape, tape, tape, pack, pack, dust, pack, tape, tape, tape. Repeat.
This is my life this week as our moving expedition continues.
So I am taking a moment to mentally transport myself into the pictured scene. I'm going to put my feet up and wait for someone to bring me some kind of icy and delicious drink.
Ah, I feel so refreshed.
Now where was I? Oh yeah...tape, tape, tape....
