Last weekend...


my gorgeous assistant (and niece!) made her First Holy Communion.

We enjoyed a lovely celebration where white -

and  butterflies -

and all things  pretty

were the order of the day -

Congratulations beautiful Niamh. May you will always look back upon this day fondly. So glad we could share it with you.

Happy Wednesday,
Stephie x


  1. Hello Stephie:
    Niamh looks so very pretty. Clearly, a most memorable occasion with so much care taken with everything to make for a perfect day.

    Our thoughts are with your niece that she may be strengthened in her faith as she faces life's challenges and rejoice in her faith as she faces life's joys!

  2. Hello Jane and Lance.

    We had such a lovely evening and it was so nice to do something "girly" although I guess butterflies really aren't that religious. Nevermind!

    I hope that this will be the case for Niamh too. Such a nice way to think about faith.

    Thankyou for your kind thoughts and beautiful words, Stephie x

  3. beautifully designed - I like the all white theme.

  12. Hi there! How lovely! Everything looks so pretty! Niamh is an Irish you have Irish roots?? Martina x
    PS...I played a stormer in my packing for it just right so was pleased as punch with myself! Looking forward to catching up on all your posts!

  13. Thanks Martina!

    I grew up a "Kelly girl" so there is Irish somewhere along the line! My sister is married to an Irish guy, although he has a Pommie accent as he grew up in England, and the name is something they chose together. I really love it although I am sure as an Australian she will spend a lot of time explaining the correct pronunciation!

    Glad you are back and I look forward to catching up with you too! Stephie x

    PS Congrats on the packing!
