Hello lovelies! So we’re getting settled into our place in Austin, enjoying lots of good food, and doing some exploring. Thank you SO much to all of you for the great tips! If you have any others, I’m all ears. I’ve been without internet for most of the past week, so I’m way behind, but while I get caught up, here are some of my favorite things from around the web right now…

Here are just three of their lovely books…

Have you guessed by now that I absolutely adore vintage elements in a wedding? And picnics? Oh gosh I love picnics! I love that they require simplicity, and that they can be super casual or gourmet and elegant – and everything in between! I really hope you’re not bored of vintage and picnics, because this is certainly not the last you’ll see of them on Snippet & Ink!

Mood: simple vintage picnic
Palette: field, sepia
