I tried on MY wedding dress today for the first time. It was a bit surreal, and now my wedding seems real. Not just some distant concept. Realising the other nights that it is next month was a bit scary too!!
I go to drop into a few of my favourite shops-I'm lucky I don't live close by I think! Blake and Taylor is one of my favourites. I wish I could have the whole shop, including all the beautiful furniture.
I also picked up two sweet clay charms, with french quotes on them. Not sure what I will do with them yet.
|There is only one happiness in life, it is to love and be loved|
I love you to the depth and width and height my soul can reach
|Love this-but would have to paint it to get it into my house!|
|Beautiful old wooden furniture!|
This makes me sad. My grandparents had this exact sideboard in their dining room, it was an oiled teak, with a matching table. I didn't want it at the time, and didn't think it was very practical-partly I was moving between addresses regularly, and they were mostly smallish share houses, and partly because it was so delicate-you couldn't put hot or cold things directly onto it, you couldn't spill water onto it... So it was sold. For a really low price, because we just needed to get rid of it, and it was in a country town. I wish now I had kept it.
|Just like my grandparents' old sideboard|
I'll be back again next month Paddington! :)
