Only a couple of days now until Winter's upon us here in Oz and in a way l'll be glad when it arrives cos the sooner it's here.. the sooner it can be OVER :-) l know lots of people love the Winter especially all those ski bunnies heading off to the snowfields....but l just don't enjoy being cold...anyway it's coming, ready or not... hmmm now just WHERE are those thermals, coats and brolly:-))
l know the post title says a vintage wedding but first l thought l'd share this idea for the hanging shell "chandy" l found.... it may have been a pot plant holder in the 70's. l WAS going to paint it white....that is until l spotted this perfectly beachy blue.
l hung it from a tree branch outside and gave it two coats of "Creation Blue" spray paint.
Why, l'm not sure....but l keep finding old wedding bits and pieces on my junk travels lately, so l took it as a sign and put a wedding post together. This bridal mag dated 1962 was my favourite find. lt was such a blast from the past to see all the gowns and advertising from around the time my Mum and Dad got married.
A few of the other bits l found....a pink 60's bridal bouquet, wedding cake card and mercury glass goblet.
A dream job for me would be a wedding stylist...l'd totally love the chance to bring all the couples' visions and ideas to life to make their day extra special....especially if their taste was oodles of flowers, fairy lights, mismatched china and vintage table linens.
Long gloves made from soft fine leather....screw on earrings..(yowch!! if you've ever worn them you KNOW they hurt :-) and lucky horseshoe.
Vintage bride dress from the eighties.

Well.... l really hope you've enjoyed this post as much as l did putting it together:-))
Thanks so much for dropping by.
Til next time.
