{colour inspiration: buttercream}




. . . good morning! hope you had a lovely, lovely weekend; had the wonderful privilege of spending a perfect few days soaking up sunny rays on a terrace in the country, taking breaks only for ice cream at old stone cottages and glasses of chardonnay on wrought iron chairs at quaint cafés by the river . . . and today is so stunningly beautiful and summer-like, abandoning the indoors for a while for a few moments in the sun {such a lovely time of year!}, leaving you with soft and elegant, and always classic, shades of buttercream . . .

à bientôt & hope your week is off to a beautiful start,
xo

{p.s.} two new posts from late last week you may have missed:
* inspiration: summer, summer, summer
* two lovely things: entryways


* & one more day for the diamond give-away . . .

That sounds like the absolute dream of a weekend. The Bumpkin's highlight, picking fresh peppers in the garden, a late. late, stroll on the beach, and a fresh fruit Sunday morning brunch with My Captain! Life is good today :)
