ciao and some delightful finds
Sorry my dear English readers for that I've been just typing here my little stories only in Finnish lately. Amidst painting and redecorating and spending my latest summer holidays here and there I've been just a little bit hasty and tired to write in two languages, that's all. But now my home embellishing is starting to be finished (well, it will never be totally finished, happily, but you know that temporary feeling it's done. Before a new inspirations comes again...). But now, just some little trims et voilà, pronto, done. Today I'm planning to go to buy some shelves and then when they are placed on the wall I'll be able to introduce to you my home-making achievements. Meanwhile I decided to show you my latest finds. Both from my own stashes and from an antique dealer.
My collection of fabrics is worthy of respect. Well, of course it depends on one's standspoint but taking into account that my home isn't any fabric store it is. Even me who lives here can't remember all the treasures which are hiding in my fabric boxes. So one delighted yell blared in the air when I found a perfectly beautiful linen/hemp fabric. It's lovely sturdy and really heavy. Colour is lovely, natural and sedate. The only stupid thing is that the piece is just two meters long. Two meters - what the heck I've been thinking when buying it, ten meters would be definitely more sensible amount of such a perfect "basic-fabric". Now I would like to use it somewhere here, not to forget it anymore. So I put it on a table for to look at and think about it. And to place pretty things onto it to take some photos.
I also found a pile of old summery photos. In fact I've been hunting those for many times after my moving in here. And you may imagine my face wreathed in smiles when I found those. As wide as a boy's smile in one of those old photos.
Then I found also that dark shades are so very beautiful here in my brighter whiter nooks now. Oh, how I like it. Even black is good now when the red floor is gone! Black coffee, black old stamp, blackened metal... I would like to have something very deep brown or even black here now. Yay, new ideas!
And the latest and the cutest find: four soup plates from my favourite antique dealer. With violet patterns. Prettypretty!
