Every summer I find myself wishing for small changes around the house. Unfortunately I´m a hoarder, slightly compulsive and lazy on top of that, so getting rid of things is not easy. 😉 I grew up with my Grandma, you see, and it´s in my blood to think I might need that particular thing again someday. Haha! So, except for the occasional selling or give-away at my husband´s pressure, my solution has normally been to move into a bigger home. Haha! 😉
Anyways. I found a couple of nice things I´d love to get from Etsy, hope you like them, too! 😉 Continue reading
I fell for the frail jewelry from HapaGirls on Etsy. I don´t own anything from them, yet, but I think their naive motifs are so beautiful that it´s just a matter of time. 😉 Especially now, that spring is slowly taking over, I find myself more prone to wear jewelry and I also feel more like going out. Hope you also find some seasonal inspiration here. 😉 Continue reading
Today was a truly nice day. I woke up late and had all the time in the world to cuddle with my babies in bed, reading blogs, checking instagram pictures and drinking coffee. Later on, I and Sam headed for a flea market with a friend of ours, mostly as an excuse to get out of the house (since the weather is horrendous this time of the year), but also to see if we find something cool. We did find a poster, a couple of fancy jars for my annual lemon curd gifting and a glass bunny that fits right in our living room exhibition. I had to have a chocolate cake bite and Sam got a sausage since he´d rather be in the woods than around thousands of noisy people, but he got some ear rubs, so it was all good. At home we had lunch- roast beef left overs from yesterday, eggplant salad that my mother made a week ago, baked sweet potatoes and focaccia. It was all yummy and familiar and somehow it took us back to Romania for a moment or two.
Now I´m in bed again, the cat purring beside me, and I´m gathering energy for tonight´s Christmas party with the Interpreters´ Union. I don´t always do well with strangers and I´ve only met a couple of them, so I´m a bit nervous. It takes a certain kind of person to join a union and I usually find them a bit loud, to put it mildly. Anyhow, I hope it´ll be less work talk and more wine, besides I must be a bit like them, too, since I´m in!
In the meantime, I´m dreaming of nice stuff on Etsy. It seems I won´t be able to shop for a while, so I might as well do some virtual gazing. 😉
Whenever I have a little bit of time on my hands, I enter the dream land of Etsy and let myself get carried away. I handpicked these rings for you and I love each and every one of them! The thing is I´m not so good at wearing jewelry, but I like to stock it and know it´s mine. Talk about Gollum syndrome! My precious! Grrr!
I´ve always loved prints, don´t you?! We´ve collected prints, especially lithography for quite a while now, but we need some small pieces of art to put on a tiny shelf in our bedroom. In search for some colorful and inexpensive decoration, I stumbled upon many gems on Etsy. The two first are funny, the following two are artsy, the fifth is vintage and I love it most and the sign is just too cool!Take a look!
