Moments to inspire you...



“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” 
 Jorge Luis Borges

Todays post begins with a quote that is currently hanging on my wall.
I thought i would share a picture of the art Katelyn did for me for my birthday because i really adore this quote...




Some new items to add to my increasing jewellery collection.
Some beautiful opal earrings and these gorgeous cuffs from Diva.


The beginnings of my ball dress lie on the living room floor as my mum begins the process of sewing together my dream dress. 
Here's a look at the fabric and the pattern...




What do you think? Can you guess how my ball dress is going to turn out?
Stay tuned!

  12. hahaha yes I can guess, but I am cheating because I know a lot about sewing myself. I just have to say I really love the fabric you chose, but maybe you should use the brown piece of the fabric it's a beautiful color combination.
