Shades of purple and lilac

Shades of purple and lilac

Ah it’s Friday once again, how lovely! Today I wanted to share an amazing wedding shoot that I came across over on Once Wed and instantly loved. The incredible photography, the styling, the subtle purple palette, the blossoms, the chickens and goats, the dappled sunlight… sigh, everything is totally perfect. You can see the whole shoot over on photographer Tec Petaja’s blog, believe me you will swoon and perhaps if you’re like me, a bit of a country girl at heart, you’ll start thinking… Why am I living in the city when I could be living here! Please take a look, you won’t be disappointed!

 This weekend I definitely want to get outdoors while the sun is still shining, among other things of course, what are your plans? Have fun whatever you get up to!

    There are so many yummy favourites here!! I LOVE lilacs – they hold such strong memories of my native Sweden and mark the beginning of summer for me… and don't get me started on blueberries. I CRAVE them!
    Nature – yes, I adore the outdoors and find myself the happiest when in closeness with nature and the life in it. I grew up outside the city between a great big forest and a lovely lake – I need the tranquility of settings like that to feel in balance.

    Last but not least, what an amazing bed side pendant lamp!! Love at first sight – who is it by?? Do you know??
