Friday Memories & Mint Juleps

Friday Vibes | Sifting Memories & Mint | Molly & Beans | Australian Lifestyle BlogSome days we work back late into the evening, often until 8 – 9pm, but this Friday afternoon we decided to retire to the sunny front room at our house, whiling the day away making up batches of mint juleps whilst going through boxes of old photographs and books that were recently entrusted to us.  We converted most of the photos to digital and had been weeding out our favorites to put up a vintage photo gallery on the wall in here.  It was a beautiful afternoon, with the background sounds of a wedding in the shady park across the road, listening to the clinking of glasses, cheering, speeches, laughing and Ed Sheeran playing loudly. The sounds were wafting through the windows on the breeze into the perfumed room, which has been overcome by the scent of oriental lilies – the first flowers we had bought for the house in a long time.  Molly & Beans were rustling and tussling around the room play fighting all afternoon, I was admiring the vintage chairs I just scored – and can you believe it, one of the books I found was an 1800’s take on Harpers Bazaar!!
