The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday all!  What fabulous things do you have planned for today?  We are back in full house renovation mode tiling, painting and sanding –  but I have to say the manual labour is a lovely contradiction to my usual glam day to day activities of blogging 😉

I have been reading a super book on intentions at the moment and this is something that I have been incorporating into the renovations more and more.  You might say the goal is for us to finish the kitchen/ dining room, but the intention is to create a social space that combines rustic charm with abundance and luxury, somewhere friends and family gather, a space filled with memories and laughter.

Or another application is when vendors submit a real wedding, their goal is to be featured on the blog, but what is their intention?  To provide inspiration for you, the readers, getting married at that wedding venue, to provide insight into a lesser known area through ambient images, or to connect with you the bride to be on the same style of wedding and photography you are looking for?

As a bride planning her big day, the goal is to get married and celebrate, but what is your intention?

I will leave you to ponder with The Sunday R&R….

We started this final week of January with the most intimate wedding at Chateau de la Chevre d’Or with just the couples’ parents as guests and photography by Greg Finck – see full wedding here

French Inspired Interiors

As the renovations continue, I love looking for French inspired interior styling items that match our style and theme.  I love these bubble jars, perfect for on the new reclaimed skaffolding plank breakfast bar, filled with treats for visitors. Available here at Minted.
