Our lovely friends Fiona and Tarek recently got engaged, and had an party yesterday afternoon to celebrate.

We took along a little engagement present of some of my handmade napkins.

The fabric I used came from an estate sale that I went to recently.  I’m guessing it’s probably from the late 60’s?  It’s an amazing cotton print, the purple watermelon is so cool.  I used an old sheet to back these napkins – that way they’re double-sided and they’ll last for ages.

Fabric napkins are perfect for picnics, dinner parties, and everyday use.  We use fabric napkins all the time at home- we just love them.

Congratulation Fiona and Tarek!  We’re so very happy for you both!

Today is Labour Day, so we’re enjoying a very pleasant 3 day weekend.  We just headed out for a short walk to enjoy this lovely spring day.

This dress is a vintage number I scored from a great little recycled clothing store on Crown St in Surry Hills called U-Turn.  It has a very Mad Men kind of feeling to it.  I love the cut of this dress – the waistline is just perfect.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
