I promise to share our wedding invitations + save-the-dates that I have been spending all my time on. I wouldn't mind carving out some time for a nap...preferably in some fields of green.

Fauna & Flora.

I received a wonderful little gift from a dear, dear friend: A Sophie Toulouse postcard book titled Fauna & Flora. Simply beautiful. I've admired Sophie's beautiful illustrations for some time now, and tonight, this little gift was treasured. Thank you so much Cheri*

Non-rosy Confession

I have a confession to make: I'm not really a fan of roses. I tend to dislike anything rose-scented: soaps, perfumes, candles, lotions, etc...and you can forget about anything that is imitation-rose scented. No way. However, I was walking V.V. through my neighborhood the other afternoon and I couldn't stop admiring all the roses in bloom right now. It was unbelievable actually, everywhere I looked my eyes met with a rose of vibrant color and intoxicating scent. I was so impressed that I vowed to take my camera with me, and now look at me, I'm making a post of it! Anyways, I hope that you too stop and smell the roses every once in a while. You can be ever so pleasantly surprised.

(I proceeded in pretending V.V. and I were walking through the English countryside for the rest of our walk).

Came across some of Molly Surno's Polaroids and these two stayed with me for a bit. Kinda nostalgic, very poetic...

A Little Goes a Long Way...

Yay! I received some pictures from my lovely friend Rachel Fleischer from the big birthday soirée for the wonderful interior designer! It was an enchanting evening, and because everyone seemed so happy with the flowers, I let the guests take them all home, vases and all! Why not, right? See some more here if you'd like*

I've been working really hard on our wedding invites and came upon these while researching flowers. Xylotheque means 'wood library.' Basically, pieces of wood cut into the shape of books with inscribed binding and set together to give the impression of a row of books. Such wood libraries flourished in the 1800s. What's even cooler is that some were taken a step further and turned into hinged boxes and would hold specimens of dried leaves, flowers, roots, fruits, seeds and twigs. Pretty neat-O.
