A gentle kiss of autumnal bliss...

Another weekend we leave behind...days full of wonder await us. What they will be, only time will tell. But, the anticipation is exciting. I spent a relaxing weekend inside listening to the rain dance on the window panes as the sunshine burst through the clouds in stripes of glory. As if summer and Autumn are having one last dance with each other together before Autumn must take it's solo moment...the air is heavier and quicker like birds swooping up and down in the sky. Golden wonder is beginning to engulf the deep greens of trees like a rich blanket of prosperous grandeur. I enjoy watching this dance take place, I warm myself with cups of tea and get lost in the imaginative world of my books. The aroma of spice from little cakes to tantalize the taste buds...as I sit in this ripening cocoon of Autumnal beginnings....


Happy Monday beauties...Below are some photos from my birthday & some of the sweet presents that I received. I hope you are well & have a gorgeous day :)

{Below my birthday cupcakes - I wanted them instead of an actual cake...there was a mass of them, but they are all gone now *wink* On the right....my birthday meal, I went out for Chinese food, Yum}


{Below Left, a vintage slip dress & on the right a victorian-esque lace top. You'll see them both in future posts}


{Vintage paisley dress gotten from Beyond Retro, love it. You'll see this as well in a future post}


{If you follow me on instagram, you will have seen these. 2 beaded handbags from the 20's. I collect vintage bags, so they fit in nicely. The one on the left was handmade in France. So lovely}


{A new phone. This is the Sony Xperia Z. My phone before was a dinosaur in regards to phones, very dated. So, this is much better. I have instagram right on my phone and everything else, my husband said 'welcome to the 21st century, hahaha! I need to get it a snazzy phone cover now.}


{A personalized name necklace. I've never had one in my life - obviously when my name is rare. It was quite crap really growing up. So, I now finally have my name on a necklace - well nickname, thanks to Tatty Devine. I love their site!! I teared up a bit seeing my name on a necklace finally. You'll see it in a outfit post soon. I just love it}


{A leather biker jacket. Inspired by my niece & our infinite love for the tv show Supernatural & the fact that we both love & want a '67 Chevy Impala. But, it will go well with my vintage dresses. Just so you know, this is faux leather, not real leather}



And now....go into your new week with a positive mind & a happy heart full of hope & love!

  34. I love the inspirational photos Doll, they've all made me smile. So glad to hear that you had a lovely birthday and got some wonderful presents, that cupcake looks delicious, a little like something I remember having a while back and really enjoying but I can't remember where I had it from and it's frustrating haha. Also loving your Autumn optimism, in certain ways it's an incredibly beautiful month.

  45. I love everything about this post! You received awesome gifts. All of the clothes look gorgeous and those bags are amazing! I love that faux leather jacket. Supernatural happens to be one of my all time favorite shows too. I buy all of the seasons when they come out so that Tracy and I can rewatch all of the episodes in Supernatural marathons that we have. I want a 67 Impala too now. I wonder why?!
