...weekend inspiration

Happy Friday to all! ... my today's post is lots of  images come together to remind of  weekend pleasures, some i'm dreaming about right now -- like, romantic escapes into wild nature's arms, be back home with an armful of freshly picked meadow flowers or may be even a luxuroius roses bouquet from your own garden, fancy a cocktail in a fine crystal goblet or comfort yourself with a latte foaming lavishly over the mug's edges, or may be throwing a secret garden party starring fresh seasonal yummies, only for two!
KATIE STOOPS PHOTOGRAPHY  + TABLESCAPE PHOTO via MADEMADE.RU  + MAGNOLIA ROUGE featured florals + LATTE RECIPE HERE (a milk frother and a miscrowave will be needed to make foam)
MINT JULEP COCKTAIL by SIMPLY JESSICA MARIE  -- classical variant is made with bourbon, and here's a non-alcoholic, lemonade based, version for us, non-drinkers!ZIPPORAH PHOTOGRAPHY -- just love this pic, the peas... so amazingly green and round! :))...or, why not to make a CREAMY GREEN PEAS & CASHEW BUTTER SOUP?

Soft Moods...

...a very relaxed post for now - just hazy light photographies for a special mood. Today, it's all about being soft & dreamy!
↑ ... i love the mood here - a tranquil, pleasantly fresh morning... in expectation of a new, beautiful day! this photo is by a Russian photographer OLGA MAKAROVA, settling in Italy, Florence. 
↓ ...and these three are from PAPAYA ART lookbook. What a wonderful weekend morning it may be lounging with all these cute stationary and artistic accessories, e.g. working on current exciting projects!
...check their INSTAGRAM too for more inspiration!
...a lovely table setting by BICYCLETTE BOUTIQUE, rustic but  playful and glamorous!
...another way of making rustic so pretty & romantic - lots of charming details! alas, i've lost the sources of these :]
...photos of beautiful, unique tablescapes have become of my special interest recently! Each setting is a particular story to run through. The styling here is quite simple as we can see -- it is mostly a flowing textile and tall candles going along so well with the grasses what sets the whole story. PHOTO BY MIESH PHOTOGRAPHY
...love this one too -- a dreamy, succulent styled table with a retro feel. PHOTO VIA TUMBLR
...anything sparkling and glittering is my theme! :D! Taken by a Russian photographer TATYANA PRONINA.
...and the last one in the series showing one of my favourite flowers, lupine! By the way, i love the idea of potting or arranging flowers in water in enamelware. This beautiful photo is by a Lithuanian photographer LORETA JASIUKENIENE from ALL THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS

Cheery Cherry Summer

... have just found some cherry tree photos i took this summer when the berries only started giving their first blush. Though the quality is not what i had meant it to be (the pics were taken with a mobile cam), yet the happy summer mood is transmitted anyway... agree? ツ
