Outgoing mail!

26 December 2013

First of all, I hope you had a great Christmas day with lots of food, presents and mainly with lots of love and happiness! As for this post, I hadn't written any letters in months so I tried to make these as beautiful as I could! I loved the idea of sharing tea sachets and I need to dry some flowers for the next ones!

Books wishlist for 2014!

20 December 2013

I guess I should have read some of these books years ago when they came out, but running short on money as always, I only bought two books in a while and these were always left on my Goodreads 'to-read' list! Lately I've read all kinds of genres, historical, mystery, fantasy, young-adult, period and fantasy again, so I choose a little of all types in this wishlist! I've already read and liked other books by Juliet Marillier, John Harwood and of course the god Neil Gaiman, whose new book I can't wait to get on my hands!

The WhitePepper - Les Parisiennes

10 December 2013

As you might have guessed, the whitepepper is one of my favorite brands/shops, I simply love everything they do! And this lookbook is just adorable (even if I feel this style is more like a Londoner instead of a Parisienne)!

Crafty Sunday: Wooden jewellery box!

17 November 2013

I had this wooden box on my drawer for so long, it was a green color I really didn't like and I knew I had to fix it sometime. I got two acrylic colors, an emerald and a white one, put only a little of the emerald and I got this mint color that I adore! The light wasn't really good so in some photos it looks light blue. I thought of  adding some flowers with decoupage but I had tried it on another box and it didn't turn out well so instead I added many tiny little stars! I love how it turned out, and it's very spacious!

Knitting project: Harry Potter scarf!

13 November 2013

I'm so excited with this scarf, I chose the easiest pattern (just knit) to get it done as soon as possible! I was looking again and again at photos around the web with people wearing Hogwarts scarves and I thought why not?! This way it's warmer and longer than the ones sold on ebay/amazon! The pattern says that the scarf is supposed to end with the crimson color on both sides but I didn't have enough yarn to do it this way, so instead I just made the tassels diferent!
* Nerd note: I was actually sorted into Ravenclaw (in Pottermore) but Gryffindor's scarf is more recognisable and has better-matching colors!
