I printed the little stickers on moo and the quality was great. We hung cones from the pews and my flowers were Boris Becker Chrysanthemums which I had remembered seeing and my florist kindly traced for me. I spent months searching for ribbon... I used 3 types - a simple polka dot or stripe on the invites and this amazing silk ribbon from Hyman Hendler in New York. One of our groomsmen ended up collecting it while on a trip there and spent 3 days trying to find the shop!! I'm pretty sure I wrecked his head but it was worth it when it arrived - it was used for the Bridesmaids bouquets and the cake. My stunning bridesmaids wore black fishtail gowns from coast - as one is very, very tall we had to add some length to the dresses and they turned out to be even more stunning.
I LOVED my dress - it's by Vera Wang and is now for sale if anyone is interested! My shoes were gorgeous snake skin from a little boutique in the Winthrop Arcade. I ordered this ring holder from Palomas Nest and I have since lent it to friends and I'm keeping a list and hoping to pass it on to many generations.

I came across these rugs before but lost the link - so I was delighted to find them again... only issue is I can't decide which rug I love the most, I'm looking for a runner for my hall and they are perfect for those with four legged friends as they are made from plastic and they are machine washable. Designed by Pappelina which has a great website. They are sold in Inreada in Dublin and online here.

Oh how I love lazy Saturday mornings - I'm usually more of a Barry's Tea girl but when I have the time I love to make nice coffee the old fashioned way - I've tried loads of coffee makers and while the Nespresso is very good I still think a percolator and frother from Bodum are the best.

Probably the first blog I check every day is that of Abigail Ahern. Her posts are witty, inspiring and fascinating as her life sounds so amazing - she runs Atelier Abigail Ahern an online store with 2 shops in London. I adore her use of color and eclectic style.

I'm exhausted but really happy - I finally got a weekend to spend on my house and I managed to get a lot done. I also got my digital slr so I hope to put up lots more pics - I just took it out of the box so lighting etc isn't great but above is my Stendig calender in pride of place in the hall and I painted my bathroom today and I love it!
