Good morning! In preparation for next week's feature and giveaway (yes, we are pretty excited about this!) I wanted to share with you an article from Etsy's wedding blog on a number of lovely, handmade veils! Click here to read more.

create: flowers to brighten your day

Wedding flowers often cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars, this is why we love any tips on how we can have those creamy roses and exotic orchids without breaking the bank! We also recommend looking into Fiftyflowers.com for wholesale blooms.

dream: frolicks through the orchard

I can picture myself in a darling cottage in beautiful Napa Valley where I can drink wine and eat gourmet cheeses to my heart's content. So perfect.

These Melissa Sweet gowns are absolutely stunning and lovely in every way. They are so soft and ethereal and would fit wonderfully in a romantic vineyard wedding.

sunday feature: pretty pretty earthenware pieces

I love, love, love these beautiful, garden-esque earthenware creations. They would be perfect in a country, cosy kitchen among the mason jars and vintage hobnail vases. Can you imagine them in your home? I can.



create: yummy candy buffet!

The candy buffet is a huge wedding trend for 2009 and I was delighted to see that someone had created an article (including fun pictures) for what goes into creating one! I especially love the candy buffets that focus on a single color or theme and incorporate that into the table decor. I love the pretty roses that bring a touch of elegance to the table.

sunday feature: exquisite handbags and clutches

I came across these bags on Etsy and was delightfully surprised with the color and different design elements that went into each piece. I've featured a few of my favourites below, but I hope you will take time to visit Emma's shop and see what else catches your fancy! Happy Sunday!

pretty little things: a day at the lake please!

I saw this contemporary dress at White House Black Market the other day and fell in love. How much fun is this?!

sunday feature: classy ring pillows

I've been wanting to feature this particular Etsy seller's gorgeous ring pillows for some time now. I love how they are each unique in their own way and how they are designed so tastefully. The colors are especially beautiful. Enjoy!
