Jobs ahoy!

Well I had a very productive weekend! I managed to cross quite a few things of the mega list with Adam entertaining Charlie most of the weekend. I found this hilarious jar yesterday at the market- quite ironic I thought, and perfect for my mineral water straws.

I made a simple little birdcage veil, using this tutorial. I made the flower from some antique lace and silk that belonged to Adam's grandma. I'm not sure I'm going to wear it, as I'm still tossing up between two hairstyles, but it's done if I do go that way.

I used the remainder of that gorgeous vintage atlas to make these sweet heart decorations. I think the new baby can have them hanging over his or her bed after the big day :)

I made individual name tags for everybody to tie onto the stem of their glass. I find at these kinds of things you are always misplacing and mixing up your glasses- I hate that! So this is my solution :)

I have a basket of vintage napkins wrapped in the lovely paper napkin rings my fabulous friends made at our crafternoon. Though I realised I'm about 30 napkins short.... oops back to the op shops!

I have my seed packet favours printed out, cut out stuck together and ready to fill. I used this ace free download. And I'm going to fill them with Peony Poppy Seeds.
I also made a backdrop for the photo booth, wrote my vows, sorted most of the music for the reception, and found time to my Kris Kringle contribution to our craft group Christmas dinner.

And I even found time to make myself a little skirt from a couple of pretty vintage aprons. I thought I could wear it this coming weekend when we are off to this festival for a child free weekend of music and relaxation.  It's been SO long since we've done that! It's our way of reconnecting before the wedding. Life with children, whilst planning a wedding and the building of a house, not mention being pregnant and tired- has meant we've not had much time or energy for each other lately. 

I'm so looking forward to a weekend of just us :) 

How was your weekend? Fabulous I hope! Happy Monday morning :)
