Weekend links are back! It took me forever to catch up on all of the blogs that I subscribe to, but hopefully now I’m up to speed. I’ve been enjoying Austin so far, but I’m still open to your suggestions for things to do, see, eat, so please shoot me an email or leave a comment. And in the meantime, here are some of my favorite links from around the web this week…

I’ve got a special post for you today! Instead of an inspiration board or a real wedding, I’ve got a beautiful tablescape, created by the talented Carissa from JL Designs, and shot by the equally talented Jasmine Star. French farmhouse elegance at its best – simple, beautiful, and timeless.

The ivy, the artichokes, the linens from Wildflower Linen and the beautiful cake by Sweet & Saucy… What’s not to love? And if you’ve been following Snippet & Ink for even just a short time, you’ll know this is one of my favorite wedding color schemes – classic green and white. Thank you so much to Jasmine Star and Carissa from JL Designs for sharing this lovely shoot with us today! You can see even more photos by Jasmine and hear about some of the details of the shoot over on Jasmine’s blog.

You know that light that comes toward the end of a summer day? Between afternoon and evening, when the sun is no longer glaring, but it’s not quite dusk yet either? Siesta time, maybe. Anyway, that’s the light that I was thinking of when I created today’s inspiration board. Soft and warm, and apricot sweet!

Mood: summer light and sweet
Palette: apricot jam, strawberry blonde, late summer green

My honey and I have a new deal, which is that neither of us is allowed to do work after 7:00pm. Which means that I’m totally late on getting this post up for you today! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this cool, quiet palette. It seemed like just the thing for 100-plus degree heat – like diving into a pool, or heading to the spa, or something equally refreshing.

Mood: simple, subdued
Palette: seaglass, chalk white, pewter, silver, slate

I know that for myself, I want to look beautiful on my wedding day, but I also want to have a great time, and don’t want to take myself too seriously. What could be better than the whimsical beauty products that Benefit Cosmetics has to offer. I think their motto says it all: “Laughter is the best cosmetic…so grin and wear it!”
