I am a big fan of Polaroids. I’ve always loved the anticipation of waiting for the image to appear and occasionally like to “shake it like a Polaroid picture.” I had a Polaroid camera at my wedding and encouraged guests to take pictures in front of our DIY photobooth fabric backdrop…and it was a huge hit! Now we have a huge collection of Polaroids from our wedding day, even if my husband and I did forget in all of the hub bub to take a Polaroid of ourselves!
I spotted these Polaroid collages over at Green Wedding Shoes and they made me swoon. Now I am dying to try to do these ourselves, because what is better than a Polaroid of you and your husband? A collage of Polaroids, that’s what! Time to throw that wedding dress back on (and hope it fits) and do a post-wedding Polaroid shoot. Check out the collages from sicoactiva via Green Wedding Shoes below.
I am a huge fan of Laura Hooper‘s Calligraphy and of her blog, A Lucky Orchid Wedding. She does fresh and feminine calligraphy on anything you can think of, but my favorite thing that she does are her custom maps.
I really wanted these for my own wedding, but they just weren’t in the budget. Maybe someday we’ll have her customize one of her Emotional Maps, or maybe she can do a logo for Oh Lovely Day or Tilde Designs when we are a super successful brand (here’s hoping!). But for now, I will continue to follow the blog and drool over the beautiful designs she does for others.
Living in Southern California but being from the midwest originally, I have become obsessed with lemon trees! They are so pretty and different than anything I was used to growing up. I recently made a lemon themed inspiration board, but was waiting to post it until spring. That was until I spotted this amazing feature at Style Me Pretty that looks like it could have come from this board. Now I can’t wait any longer…
With two weeks until Valentine’s Day, I wanted to devote some posts to all things Valentine. First up, some of my favorite Valentine cards and stationery. I’d be happy to get any one of these from my Valentine!
