vintage brooch bridal bouquets

Sometimes I can’t help but check out the latest in bridal fashions, even though I have no intention of being a bride. While the dresses and shoes are always lovely, there’s one thing I keep seeing in wedding blogs that makes me pause and stare.

Wedding bouquets made from brooches.

From Fantasy Floral Designs via June Bug Weddings

I just can’t get over how smart these are. If I’m going to pay a lot of money for a bouquet, I’d like it to last.

From Gloria’s Laughter

I also like the idea of durable flowers, in case of wedding disaster.

from The Ritzy Rose

This one is just breathtaking.

From Noaki Jewelry via Green Wedding Shoes

I love how vibrant they are.

From Studio del Fiore

And of course, here’s a d.i.y. tutorial from Offbeat Bride. This is the end result.

What do you think of these bouquets?

ah, wanderlust: dreamy vintage luggage

Sigh. Doesn’t this luggage from GetReadySetGo make you dream of vacationing at some great places?

Like taking a safari…

Upcycled Vintage Train Case

These messenger bags make me want to travel to Italy, or anywhere in Europe, really.

I would love to take this on a fun seafaring adventure.

Upcycled Forest Green Train Case Luggage

Or maybe just take a trip to grandmother’s house. It may be boring, but at least you’ll have some attractive luggage.

Vintage Cream Suitcase Set

The owner of the shop has a blog you might want to check out.

etsy finds: dictionary prints

Aren’t these lovely prints on vintage dictionary paper?

Why, yes, lately I’ve been obsessed with alpacas.

I think the colored ones are beautiful.

Once again, I’m amazed at how cheap etsy can be. All of these prints are under $10. Sorry for such a image heavy post. I couldn’t decide which ones to choose.

Good Morning. Hasn’t it been such a lovely week? I’m always in a better mood when the cats decide to cuddle with me in the morning. It’s the best way to wake up.

Right now I’m loving:

These beautiful purses made from 50’s-era canvas mail bags.

This fabric slasher scarf. I’ve given up on learning how to knit and am now focusing on strictly fabric scarves.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I’m going on a tour of all the farms that stock our local co-op. I heard that there might be some Alpacas (in Florida?). I hope this is true. I love those things.
