I read lately that the things we collect in our homes are a reflection of who we are..Why do we collect things? And what kind of things do we keep around us? Is it just to make our home prettier and trendier or is it because we love to surround ourselves with things that have meaning to us? I believe it’s the latter, i believe that a home is the place where you truly are you, where each object is special, and put together they create the atmosphere each person wants to live in. A home is a collection of memories, and those memories are found in the things you collect..That’s why i decided that each week i am going to post a picture of an object in my home, something that has a meaning to me personally, that shows who i am…
These are two paintings i did 3 years ago (i don’t know how to paint, truly!), it was in a stage in my life where i needed to let out something, and originally they are supposed to be my 2 daughters (they look nothing like that!), i was thinking of them when i drew these paintings…I smile every time i pass in front of them, i smile because it always reminds me that i really don’t know how to draw, but i still do love them!
Do you collect things just for the sake of collecting, or does each item in your home suggest a story, a memory?
I have been seeing this trend a lot lately, a big blown up picture in living rooms…It can very easily be a picture that you yourself took, on vacation, or of a building you specially like, a sea shore…the possibilities are endless. What do you think? Would you hang a big picture in your home, or prefer paintings?
As promised, my husband moved our shelving unit from one wall to another, so very proud of himself!
That’s a Scandinavian unit from the 70’s that we got about 3 years ago, below are 2 sets of drawers and a mini bar. Those Scandies are really geniuses in design!
Let’s have a look at what’s inspiring me this week
Joyful wallpaper! Still undecided about wallpapering one wall in our bedroom…
Notice the chandelier and the little gold shelf…
Bistro chairs, marble table, sloped glass ceiling, totally envious!
Where do i begin? Everything is perfect, and that yellow coffee machine is calling my name!
And finally what’s not to love in this outfit? Major crush…
On a side note…My weekend was greeted with great news on a personal level, news that gave me hope. And then it ended yesterday with a slap back to reality . My heart is so heavy i wasn’t going to post anything today. But then i remembered something someone once told me; when something brings you down, don’t wallow in your sadness, it will only make you sadder and it won’t change a thing. Get up, face the world and keep doing what you usually do, be strong, and the people who care about you will always be there. I’m trying my best….
Have a lovely rest of the week, xo…

Since i was young (er), i collected mugs, i used to get my dad mugs for every occasion, i even once got a plain white mug and painted for him! This obsession hasn’t abated with age, i still succumb everytime! Tell me what you think of my latest acquisition..
Truth be told, i fell for the box first! In love with my Rococo cup…
It’s friday, the weekend, let’s enjoy it!
Go out, have some fun, enjoy the weather! Will see you back here on Monday, xo…
Major jet lag! Leaving you to enjoy a beautiful kitchen…
Love the open shelving and those cutting boards on the wall!
I arrived home with ideas of redecorating and switching things…So the weekend will see my husband working hard on dismantling our bookcase and do some painting. I will be supervising!
