Wedding ...

Hooray for professional wedding photos! Mine were just not fit to post!

These are some photos of my dear friends Alicia and Derek's wedding in August at Longview in the Adelaide Hills - I was tickled pink when they asked me to help them with the flowers and decorations.

The bouquets turned out so much better than I could have dreamed of!
I used big roses (from Kenya, how cool is that!), baby garden roses, pom pom chrysanthemum, and privet berries, wrapped up in dodder vine and strips of wedding dress fabric.

Baby rose bouquets for the gorgeous flower girls ... Alicia's niece Charlotte is a florist in the making, what a wonderful help she was.
Very simple romantic tables, but they looked smashing at night under all the fairy lights
On the cake table I used a huge vintage demijohn to hold the blossom and little vintage friand moulds as tea light holders
And this is my favourite shot - what a stunning bride!

Happy week, dear friends xx

Live ...

I think one day I'll live here...
Or maybe here... less boat parking space but more art ...

Either will do!


Pharmacy ...

Popped past Pottery Barn (online, that is) the other day and realised that they've been mimicking the W&W look!
The cheek of them!

Hehehe... I'm silly.

BUT, we do have an even better collection of pharmacy bottles over at our shop... we are slowly going through the crates and getting them ready for sale ... we mainly have to go this slowly because of the fumes we are breathing as we clean them...
There lies the evidence of authenticity, dear friends, noxious chemicals!

If there is a particular chemical you're after please let us know, I'm sure we have it!


Blindfold ...

Inspired to blindfold a couple of paintings at my little loft after seeing this gorgeous image above...

Forgive the deliberately overexposed shot - experimenting with my new Hipstamatic App... am I always the last to get in on these things?!

First shot from here... via my Pinterest


Set Love

I cannot wait to see this movie... for the set design of course! It's going to be spectacular...


Arty ...

So lovely... could take or leave the Barcelona chairs but the rest of it, yes please!
A little bit like my ship wall only so much better...

Fabulous new tumblr find ... Wit and Delight


Pre-Christmas Sale ...

I saw Christmas decorations on shelves while shopping yesterday and started getting very excited - only 12 weeks... eek!
Never fear, we've got Christmas covered... welcome to the first White & Wander pre-Christmas sale...!

For the month of October, we are very excited to offer free shipping in Australia on the entire range of exquisite Manifest Destiny candles, exclusively stocked in Australia by White & Wander ... so pop over to the shop and stock up for Christmas...
Customers are raving about them! Go get one, you know you want to...
My own testimonial?
I'm not normally a big candle lover as I think they usually smell so predictably sweet but I've been amazed at the surprisingly heady and unusual scents that these candles contain. Currently, I have Vintage Velvet (cognac and amber) burning and the scent still lingers even when the candle is unlit. Amazing!
And, after my last candle, Hunter's Reign, ran out ( 80 hours burn time) I now use the silvered vessel as a little vase by my bed - lovely.
There are 8 different candles to chose from so head on over to the shop and snap some up as gorgeous gifts. Limit of 3 per customer and yes, free shipping within Australia!

And don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for more gorgeous vintage stock popping up on the shop in the next few weeks...

Happy long weekend, dear friends xx
