Paper Love: Shepherds Falkiners

I've already written about Shepherds in this wedding sneak peek. However their products are so stunning, I simply couldn't leave it at one post. So I've picked out a few designs which really rock my world.

Dog Lovin': Funky Mutts

Now I'm not going to fib, I'm not a pet owner. I feel about animals the way some people feel about children: Cute and all, but they'd mess up my house. So I'm very happy to love other peoples dogs, but I'm giving them back pronto.

However. Would it be wrong to get a dog just so I could accessorise? I know the answer to this is yes, very wrong, but when you can get such beautiful things as are available from Funky Mutts, a girl could be tempted, especially as they do human accessories.

I'm not talking Paris Hilton type bling here. I'm talking honest to goodness gorgeous. Liberty prints, retro numbers, brights and subtle. Every dog (and even cats) deserve some pretty, and frankly, with a 7 1/2 month old son, I can think of my own uses for that fabulous poo bag.

Wedding Sneak Peek #2: Shepherds Falkiners Paper

I took a trip to Shepherds Falkiners to invest in some beautiful paper which we'll be using in various ways in the wedding. This shop is, quite frankly, heaven. Exquisite papers from all over the world, I could have spent far far more than I did. These are from their Florentine collection.
