Change is a very good thing.

This coming Wednesday, the Belle Memorie blog will move to its own domain: http://www.bellememorie.com! This will give me the ability to accept blog sponsors. For those on the ad waiting list and those who might be interested in advertising, I should have my media pack completed by the end of April and ads will begin posting the first week in May. Thank you so much to all of you who support Belle Memorie!

Wedding Wednesday: Peachy Pride and Prejudice Inspiration

To celebrate the 200th birthday of my favorite novel, “Pride and Prejudice,” I wanted to put together a pretty little inspiration board inspired by the Regency Era and in the vein of an English countryside wedding. I happened up this gorgeous gown by Papilio and it has the perfect amount of Regency Era inspiration without being mistaken for a costume.

I hope you have been enjoying the posts so far this week. Feel free to share your favorite novel. You just might find and inspiration board on it in the coming weeks.

Ow! Away for a day or so

Hello all. I’m going to be away from the blog for a day or so as I am experiencing a health issue. I should be back on Wednesday. In the meantime, take care.

In Memory Of…

Friday’s post was going to be dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting, and it still is. However, this morning, my dear sweet brother-in-law, Boe passed in his sleep suddenly. He was an amazing man who I loved and admired a great deal. Please keep my sister, Sandy in your thoughts and prayers. We have lost our parents and her husband in less than two years. We know he and our parents are in heaven together.

Friday’s Favorites: Wheat, Rose Gold, and Black and White Plaid Details and Gorgeous Bridal Jackets

Happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for this Halloweekend? Tomorrow, Mr. Wondermous and I are taking the kiddo up to Longmont for the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration followed by a trip to one of our favorite farms, Berry Patch Farms, to get pumpkins and enjoy their Harvest Festival. I know it will be loads of fun and I’ll do my best to take some pics and post them.

In other news, Belle Memorie is now on Tumblr! If you’d like to see more of wheat inspires me, head over to: http://bellememorie.tumblr.com/ and take a look.

This past week was full of wedding gorgeousness and it’s my pleasure to show you how you can take my inspiration boards and find similar great handmade and vintage items via Etsy. Enjoy!
