A Very Happy Weekend..

So the day has arrived.. my bags are packed and sitting at the door and I'm off on a plane in a few hours to Brisbane to meet up with my beautiful travelling companions before setting off to New York on Tuesday! I must say I really, beyond excited.  It all seems a little surreal at the moment.. but I'm sure as soon as I get on the plane, it will all sink in.   There will be plenty happening on Her Library Adventures while I'm away. Flea Market Finds will be continuing on Sunday as always.  I also have some wonderful guest bloggers that will be popping in and sharing their travel inspired posts and if the Internet plays nicely, I'll be sharing my Big Apple adventures too! Here are my favourite inspiring bits and pieces for the week..

This beautiful Fall lookbook

And the delightful Autumn Roots and Feathers lookbook

Home made peanut butter (who knew it was this easy!)

The perfect cinnamon brownies

And I can't wait to try this vegetarian chilli recipe

This inspiring little post on 1940's hairstyles

This gorgeous Calivintage outfit

Loving all things Mad Men

Much Love
