So I visited the annual Art In Action Show last week thinking it wouldn't really be my thing but oh yes, the sun was shining, beautiful grounds and a tent full of gorgeous textiles so of course I was pleasantly surprised.
Decked with lots of marquees in Oxford each one offering work from paintings to water colours to prints and sketches; there was lots to see and do. You could join in on life drawing classes or watch how to craft your own chair. Perfect for the kids and people wanting to do something different. I spoke to two lovely ladies, one who hand makes wedding dresses and other lovely frocks and another who designs her own beautiful jewllery line. Check out their websites for more. http://francescamarcenaro.com/ and http://www.allisonrodger.co.uk/
Here's just a few snaps I took so you can see how esqisite their pieces are.
I also had the pleasure of going to my beautiful cousin's wedding on Saturday. With a 1950's theme she looked stunning in a strapless gown with full fluffed skirt. Here's a pic of me and my lovely sister before the bubbly was served....not very 1950's but love this dress...it could be yours! A silk feel marble effect print frock with floaty skirt effect, short at the front, fanning out longer at the back. I teamed my Charles David silver and grey heels with minimal Nora Norway http://www.noranorway.com/ wrist band and black diamante studs. Black smokey grey eyes and soft lips. Love! My sister teamed a Great Plains frou frou flower silk skirt with a sequin embellished cream vest and gold peep toe stilletoes. Are we really sisters? So different!
I'd also like to wish my darling Natalie and Ben a very happy wedding anniversary. Can't believe it has been three years! Such a wonderful day!
So I'll leave you with a song I am obsessed with right now- Graveyard Whistling by Nothing But Thieves- have a listen. It's magical and oh so true...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCCAEcuOk_g
