Autumnal Bliss

Last week I promised some pics of the 1930's wedding dress that I had to purchase with the headpiece I wanted at the Salvos

I snapped up a pair of Rachel Ashwell new pillowcases on E-bay from somebody who wanted a quick sale for under $20 ......mind you it was 6am!

In the garden this week

Beautiful sunsets from the back door

coffee on the front verandah

Glory vine on the side fence

some days I swear I could touch the forest behind us

  3. Meg, that is so ethereal, isn't it? I bet you're glad you bought it now :)

  4. Hello Meg,

    Oh the nostalgic emotions which are stirred up by vintage wedding dresses. How one wonders about the wearer and the married life which followed. The dress has so many beautiful details and will surely look fabulous on when all spruced up!

    Your garden is a haven. How you must love it all.

  5. Wow, the wedding dress is beautiful. And your garden, and the surroundings, look idyllic. Fabulous sunset! Abby

  8. Such a delicate piece the dress is. it is lovely.
    Home grown beans are one of my favourites. The crunch and flavour cant be bought in the shops. x

  9. That's a lovely wedding dress. I can't wait to see what your plan is for it. You got an amazing deal on the pillows. Your surrounding is gorgeous and so peaceful. I can feel the Autumn air through your photos. Autumn is my favorite season.

  10. What a divine wedding dress! It looks just lovely on display in your room.
    It's weird to think of Autumn without Christmas being around the corner! xx

  11. love the dress and the pillow cases. I noticed on your side bar, you have a library card catalog. Did you do a blog on it? You dont seem to have a search widget for your blog

    Your 1930's wedding dress is wonderful and i like seeing those fat pretty chickens out in the yard
