I just love a county fair, and this sweet photo sent in by a lovely customer is so classic!  I can just imagine the music, rides, and farm animals with their ribbon prizes.  And lots and lots of pies, like this one :)  Thank you so much for sharing your special day!

Inspiration: Southern Charm

Saturday, May 19, 2018

Two weeks ago we visited Charleston, South Carolina, to attend our cousin's magical wedding at Middleton Place.  We actually didn't spend time in the city itself, and though I'm sure I missed lots of lovely photo ops, wandering around the plantation - among the beautiful gardens and under thousand year old live oaks draped with Spanish moss - more than made up for it.  Below are two cake toppers that were inspired by our visit: "Sweet Tea", with vintage floral prints in champagne and rust, and "Magnolia", in spring green botanical prints with white on white damask.  Enjoy the photos and definitely visit Middleton if you are in the Charleston area!

Photo Friday: Dutch Florals

Bought myself these beautiful spring blooms this weekend.  They remind me of the flowers in still life paintings by the Dutch masters.  Have a lovely weekend!
