Friday Wrap Up


Thank the glorious heavens. It's Friday. Did anyone else catch this incredibly stunning lavender wedding via Style Me Pretty this week? Sent in all the way from Australia (of course, they always have the most gorg weddings) every little detail was perfectly accented by the dreamy photography of Samm Blake. Don't even get me started on those lavender bouquets the maids carried too. I bet the air smelled heavenly all. flippin. day. long. I may have a new soft spot for the colour purple. And lavender. And Australia. Just sayin.

In other news, turns out Andrew and I didn't get the condo we put on offer in on two weeks ago (bummer) but are finally making the move to Grand Rapids, in just two more weeks. We found a little two bedroom apartment with a fireplace that will serve as our temporary home while we narrow down locations to build on. I've argued with him that it's neccesarry for us to build so I call wallpaper one of the walls in my office. Is that tacky? Or outrangeously cool? I think the latter. I've fallen in love with wallpaper these days. And in case you missed any of the gorgeousness around here this week, no worries. I've summed it up for you here. Lucky ducks!

That photo is a serious swoon.

I'm sorry about the condo, but this way you'll have complete control over every single dreamy aspect-and that is going to be one gorgeous house!

Have a wonderful weekend, darling!

Lucky ducks indeed - thanks! And is it strange that the moment I saw this photo I thought I smelled lavender? Hmm.....

Jennifer Rose said...

love those dresses :D so very pretty :D

hate wallpaper tho :/ such a pain to take off, especially if someone has just covered over the old stuff. painting is just so much easier for us to do in this house (first thing we did, painted over the horrible lime/snot green painted wallpaper)

I'm loving those dresses & bouquets. Sorry to hear about the condo.

Now that I am a homeowner, I have taken a huge interest/liking to wallpaper. I can't wait to gut our two retro 50s style bathrooms so I can pick out pretty wallpaper to put on the walls!

The lavender wedding is gorgeous! My wedding will be purple, too!

Have a good weekend!

Candace Boice said...

happy weekend!

Jess said...

Oh wow, the lavender bouquets adds such a nice touch! Hope you had a good weekend :)

Naomi Goodman said...

Something much better is coming your way...and no it's not tacky to wall paper one wall. I have an image I just found online that I've kept to wallpaper one wall of my office. This image {which I don't mind sharing} was of an actual home office.

BTW isn't lavender just dreamy? The smell, the color, and the flower is all perfection! Have a great week ahead!

That was one amazing wedding and those dresses are perfection!! Sorry to hear your condo fell through.. guess the perfect place is still waiting for you!

2 weeks until you move! Yowza! And building? It sounds like Michigan will be home for you all for quite some time.

I love the wallpaper idea! With all your creativity, you should look into removable wallpaper. That way you can keep it fresh. I almost put some up in my little apartment. (I just kept finding other things to spend $ on!)

PS. Love the lavender idea!
