a real fairy tale


 Did you hear something about a wedding this Friday?
We're so planning on watching it. My four girls refer to it as the real-life fairy tale.


This brightly colored tea towel arrived a few weeks ago. Wouldn't it be sweet framed? Find it at Cath Kidston, if it's not sold out already.

My oldest doesn't have school that day, and we're planning a little party in honor of the event. I wish you could join us...


William and Kate seem so 'in love', don't you think?
Their wedding day will come and go, but their love will last forever... I hope.

'Whatever our souls are made of,  his and mine are the same.'

I can't wait to watch it either. I was glued to the tv for the Princess Diana and Charles wedding. This is just magical. Your tea towel is just lovely. I think I need one.

I can't wait either! I can't wait to see Kate's wedding dress.
I have that Tea Towel too, it was my gift from Cath Kidston, it's adorable isn't it.
I have those same CK cups too. I love your photos they are just too sweet.
Enjoy the wedding.

Your William and Kate tea towel is really pretty and it goes so perfectly with your dishes!! I did a wedding post today too, and there will probably be a lot of other people joining us this week. I can't wait for Friday morning! :-)

I have loved that towel since it came out. It is a beautiful design. I remember watching Diana's wedding. Because I realize it wasn't a fairy tale I don't have the same enthusiasum this time around. What a beautiful couple though.

Caroline Duffy said...

Looking forward to the big event, but not sure I'll get up at 4 am.... It's all very exciting!

blessedmom's simple home said...

I'm planning on watching it with my girls too, and apparently we have to be up pretty late here on the west coast. I think it will be an all nighter, or we'll have to set an alarm and get up in the wee hours.
The guys around here think we're a bit crazy :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

Where did you get your extremely cute cups.

Cozy Little House said...

I love your polka dots! Nah, I don't think I'll watch it. I was around for his mother's wedding and avidly watched it.

Makkie said...

Even in Holland evrybody on the radio is talking about the royal wedding. But if you don't mind tomorrow we have koninginnendag. Its allso a royal day. More important for me; many people sell their old stuff on the streets and I am always there to buy lots of nice old stuff! Realy exiting!!
But today I look for a little time your royal wedding on tv, to see the dress and hear the yes!
Nice day!

Hi Molly,

You were in my thoughts today, just thought I would hop on over to say, "hello" (again). Hope things are going well for you!

Your photos are a bit of a fairy-tale themselves - so cheering and unashamedly pretty. You really have a knack for presentation, and I'm proud to have those same napkins (the pink ones) as you.
