Trucker ...

Bit of a whacko shot to finish the week.
I'd love to have a dog that could come with me to see clients and on deliveries... not that I deliver bottled water but you get my drift!

Happy weekend, dear friends x

PS - Kimbo's birthday was yesterday... hurrah!
Celebrating with lunch at the SFC on Sunday so the new giant clam shells will be making an appearance...keep your eyes on Instagram (whiteandwander) for photos xx

Blackboard ...

Here is shot from a wedding I did for a gorgeous couple a few weeks ago.
I have a new love... signwriting. 
All that rubbing out and perfecting the lettering is so therapeutic!

Roy V Photography - the man is a genious!

Tea ...

This picture from the latest Martha Stewart Living has my heart beating rather quickly...
Adoring the twiggy, mossy props but most of all desperately want to get my mits on that giant yellow tub of tea!
Friends will be laughing as they all know I don't really drink tea but I can't resist that stunning yellow and silver loveliness - would be a beautiful addition to my collection of props that are gorgeous but completely useless...

I tracked it down(i.e. read the article) - Bellocq Tea Atelier

Wet Puppy ...

This looks like a great day to me ... Sun, water and a big wet puppy.

Happy weekend, dear friends xx

Cheetah ...

221B Baker St, London - Holmes & Watson's quarters ...
Of course I love it - there's a cheetah skin casually strewn across the ottoman!

Yacht #2

Of course, if yacht #1 gets sold then I could probably settle for this.
It's a touch more expensive at 38,000,000 but she sure is pretty...

Still dreaming... clearly!

Yacht #1 ...

 Oh, woe is me, I've stumbled upon a site that I wish I hadn't ...
 Please be warned, if you're a daydreaming wanderlusty sailor like me I strongly advise you NOT to look at it... you too will be tortured for many long hours

I've been obsessing over renovating a boat interior for some months now after spying a derelict tug that had my name written all over it. Since the owners have decided not to part with it, this will have to do as a substitute...

Built in 1939, this darling old girl served during WWII as an espionage boat for the English Navy in the Mediterranean and is currently berthed in France - With an interior in need of the W&W touch, the necessity to sail her home from France and a scandalous history like that I think we are going to get along just famously! 

A girl can dream ...sigh

Elope ...

Our family was thrilled, surprised and of course a bit flabbergasted last week with the happy news that my twin sister Luce and her lovely fiance Ellis were eloping to New York City after becoming engaged just a few weeks earlier ...
This is just a teensy selection of the photos taken by Katie Jane who not only captured the happy day but also acted as their witness - how funny is that? Luce said she was amazing so if you're ever eloping in NY, she's your gal...

We knew Luce may not have thought of a bouquet after organising all the other logistics so we tracked down a florist via their concierge and asked them to put together this gorgeous bouquet and send it over the morning of the ceremony - I wanted it to look like Georgie's wedding flowers and happily it seems that it did!

What wonderful news ... we are so happy for them and I can't wait to see them next time they are home (or I'm there!)

PS ... Luce is a brilliant dressmaker and whipped this skirt up herself just a few days before they left for NY,  and topped it off with this Kate Spade number. How clever she is!

Weekend

Funny swimming pups - just like Mr H. He is a serious water dog...

Happy weekend, dear friends xx

Classic and Zany ...


Getting back into the swing of decorating interiors again... 
I've been thinking about mixing old school classics like silver framed ships and butler's pantry's with zany touches like this trumpet sconce... I think it works. Gotta have a touch of whacky in every interior.

Gorgeous x

Wed ...

Thoroughly successful wedding on the weekend, friends ... the design went beautifully to plan.
The event was full of love, life, food, wine and dancing... not even the bug invasion post rain could dampen the beautiful couples spirits...

My 'Mr & Mrs' canvas was also a hit - and lots of fun to make. As usual I've been too impetuous to take photos during its production ... classic Emma.

More photos to come ... this one is from Kim's Instagram - check it out!
