Childhood Memories

Aside from anything else i would have loved a horse bicycle from here.


My childhood bedroom was always filled with art, crafts, and books. I was a very crafty kid, always drawing, gluing, and putting things together. I have to say that my bedroom was probably not an ideal crafty studio or art space but at the time i loved it. Unfortunately I don't have any good pictures of the space, or me in it but I remember it being very small and cozy. The place to get away and do your own thing, away from school, chores and responsibility. The one thing that i loved more than crafts and art was reading. Reading was something I always did at night before bed, so that I could dream about the imaginary land that books took you too. But the one thing i always missed in my bedroom was proper bookshelves (hence perhaps my great obsession to phenomenal bookshelves, you can check it out here, here and here) . So i went on a search online to imagine what a perfect bedroom would be for me:
It would have an amazing archway or doorway, where I could have had my bed or a little chair to curl up on to read (or in the cub like below), with bookshelves stretching over the archway, and through the walls around the room. Like here and like here.


And then I would have an amazing little studio area just off the side of the books with all the art and craft supplies imaginable.

And a chalkwall like this on, so that I can doodle, plan, be silly....

I hope you guys enjoyed this…On Monday make sure to visit Monika's blog Splendid Willow and check out her childhood bedroom…

The Selby has posted a wonderful spread of the Louis Vuitton family home. If you notice, not that telling (as in not that many photos) but i love the attention to detail.

DIY Advent Calendar

So this year I decided to be crafty for christmas, and instead of buying loads of decorations and other stuff (crap) I wanted to be crafty! So first on the list is the DIY Advent Calendar with a modern twist.


I started with nice craft paper with great prints, which i made little envelopes from.

I used velum to print little number signs in different colours to attach with the little clothes clips, which would then attach the envelope to the string as well.

I also found these greta cork stickies at a craft store on Main street (at the time i had no purpose for them) that are perfect as little seals for the envelopes!

And what is inside? Well.....little love notes and coupons for my honey!

And here are the envelopes all before i put them on the string above the fire place!






I really loved the project it was super fun, although it did take me a while since i did make the envelopes from scratch etc. What do you think?

Club Monaco

Have I told you about my obsession with Club Monaco? Well there it is, I LOVE their clothes. They always seem to fit well, look great, and be surprisingly extremely comfortable!

Some of my favorite pieces right now are:
Great bag for any day!

These pants, to my great surprise, fit and look great on. Pair them with a nice heel, and you got yourself a sexy and classic look.

Love the fedora..am going to proudly wear after the snow subsides in vancouver. The shirt is a nice addition.
