Sparkly DIY projects

It’s no surprise I’m crazy about everything that is sparkly and holiday like, so I was delighted to see a huge collection of DIY glittery projects. For the home, for your Christmas party, even for your wardrobe – you’ll find everything your heart desires. The best of all, each project is linked to its how-to tutorial and we can all try our hands at making a sparkly banner or some cute Christmas tree decorations (yes, I’m all about holidays these days, don’t blame me!). So because I love you so much, I had to share my find with you!

Which project is your favorite?

Back to business :)

Hello, sweet friends! Do you still remember me? It’s been too long since I last posted something so if you forgot how am I – I can totally understand you (I do hope you’ll come back though!). So I had a baby boy about two months ago and I took some time off to adjust to this new role (which is much harder than it seems, by the way!). All in all, we’re good – baby M is growing up way too fast and already looks like a little man who laughs, ‘speaks’ his own language and makes us happy day by day :).

So today I’m here sincerely hoping I’ll be able to get back to daily posting (or a few times per week at least) and since Christmas is right around the corner of course I had to share a few inspirational, relaxing and pretty pictures with you just to put you in the right mood!

Christmas and the reindeer

There’s a tight connection between these two – have you noticed? Of course you have, a reindeer has been the symbol of a Christmas for a very long time now. I must say, when I see a reindeer next to a Christmas tree I instantly feel so much joy and holiday cheer and I know it wouldn’t be the same without the reindeer part. So no matter the style you’re going with this Christmas, put there a cute reindeer (plastic, paper – it really isn’t important) and you’ll add to your holiday even more festive vibes!

Decorate for a Scandinavian Christmas

Since last year I also posted about a Scandinavian Christmas I thought I would make of it a tradition and bring a bit of Scandinavian in your life every year. This year is a bunch of pictures to inspire you to have your own Scandinavian inspired Christmas, no matter where you are. I know I’d LOVE this year the Scandinavian Christmas tree, which is so much different than trees you can see in the States or Europe: with few decorations, with twinkle lights, in a bucket – these are the main details a Scandinavian Christmas tree shows off. Oh and don’t forget about the (faux) fur – it’s quite an important part of a Scandi inspired home decor (and not only for Christmas), right?

Christmas tree hunting

Don’t know how about you, guys, but I think Christmas tree hunting is just as exciting as Christmas tree decorating is! It’s some sort of ritual that helps us get in the holiday mood and it definitely can be fun and memorable especially when you share it with loved ones. That’s why the pictures I came across recently were just too cute to be ignored!

P.S. How does tree hunting look in your family? Do you all get involved?

Happy weekend

It slipped my mind yesterday to welcome you to December (really? is 2011 almost done?). I still can’t believe it, but oh well – one thing is clear – the holiday season is here! Just like I say every year, this is my favorite time of the year and I look forward to setting up the tree, to be snowed in and to enjoy this magical time.

What are you looking forward to? Time with the family? Presents? Perhaps writing down resolutions for 2012?

Have a wonderful weekend, sweets!

Mint & Teal Christmas {this year’s fave}

Hello, friends! First of all let me apologize for being absent yesterday, leaving you with no post (can’t remember when that happened before, probably never). I was out of town all day, helping my MIL with her exhibition. But I’m back now! I missed you and hope you missed me too :D. And yes, happy December! Oh my, isn’t it unbelievable how fast time flies? In just one month we’ll say bye to 2010 and graciously embrace 2011. And this means what? Exactly – holidays are just around the corner, with reasons to decorate (and some shopping of course!). People are asking me what are  my favorite colors for Christmas this year and my answer is always the same: mint, teal, emerald green! I’m astonished by this color combo for a few weeks now! And imagine my face when I saw it in the latest Rue, on a Christmas tree (I was blown away, seriously!). The combo is so gentle yet so vibrant and modern. Traditional? No. Boring? No way! Awesome? Yes, please! I love it and will definitely consider decorating my tree with these shades. What about you?

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow…

Hey everyone! I was just thinking couple days ago, it’s already middle of December and I still didn’t see snow…What is happening with our world?! Where are those huge snow hills? Where is the winter that we were having when we were kids?! For these questions I didn’t find answers, but I finally saw snow today!!! It was snowing all day long, snowflakes everywhere! I love this! Though I need to confess I don’t really like when it’s cold outside, snowflakes are making me melt and I don’t feel anymore that it’s cold, I just see the magic of the winter, the charming spirit of Christmas and New Year and I become happy at once!!!

So, actually snowflakes are not just small pieces of ice that we can see, they’re much more, each of them has its own world, it’s own texture and shape. And may be they seem so tiny, but they’re beautiful, because they’re all different and now I’ll prove this to you!

These are snowflakes if checked closely, with macro photography. Never thought they can be so beautiful!!!

And these are pictures which my husband took today, isn’t this gorgeous?!
