New Year's Eve Mood Board

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful and don't forget to make some art. Write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can... and I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself!!!

Last Monday of the Year

The best way to start your week is...enjoying a hot chocolate while you are listening to Christmas music and smelling the fragrances of all the greeneries which decorate your home!!! The greenery composition of the photo is my brother's contribution, in his effort to wish me get better soon, as he knows that I love all those green things with the red touches!!! :)
Have a wonderful week my dears!

Sunday Morning Tales

It's finally the last Sunday of 2014... What are your plans for today? Personally, I can't go out as the last 10 days, a sudden intense backache plagues me, forcing me to stay home without being able to do  almost anything, except surfing the internet & daydreaming of being in an ultimate Christmas destination! Although this bad break, I don't lose my courage & I am planning a festive gathering with friends when everything will be ok...
I would like to try those two delicious recipes; Firstly, the apple, pear & brandy cider to help, keep ourselves cozy & then those embarrassingly simple goat cheese stuffed phyllo swirls with pomegranate, honey & pistachios... Mmm, they both seems to me so yummy!!!

p.s.: What I like also too much is the gift wrapping in the first photo...

Amaryllis vs Ilex

Amaryllis & Illex are considered as the two most popular kind of flowers/plants we use to decorate our homes during Christmas season, after the spruce branches or other greeneries
Amaryllis catches the eye with its wonderful flower and it is the right choice for chic & luxurious decorations, especially the red one... This is the reason why the majority of weddings taking place during December are mostly decorated with this fabulous flower.  There is also the white Amaryllis which fits perfectly to a Scandinavian style decoration (photo No 8).
On the other hand there is the thrifty Ilex which decorates perfectly every space with its woody branches ornate with those red cute berries. I love Ilex too and I find it as the perfect decorative plant for rustic or country spaces.

Special gift wraps for special people


It's only six days until Christmas & the majority of us we are thinking about the Christmas gifts we'll buy for our beloved ones... For me, the way you will wrap a gift is so important as its content itself!!! I like so much to give a special character to the gifts I offer every year to my family members & my friends either it is for a very expensive gift or for just a symbolic one... Here you can find some inspiration on how you can wrap your Christmas gifts!!!

Chic & Glamorous Christmas

If you are the kind of person who loves everything that sparkles, now it's the right time of the year for you!!! Decorate everything around you in golden hues with a good amount of glitter, but be careful not to do excesses! The best background for the golden ornaments & decorative objects is the absolute white... I strongly believe that this is the ultimate combination for the most glamorous yet chic Christmas decorations... 

p.s.: If you like the golden wood diamond ornament of the photo No 4, you can easily make it, following this tutorial.

Vintage Christmas

Do you remember those vintage handmade glass ornaments? Personally, every time I see a kind of those ornaments I remember the Christmas of my childhood... Amazing yet so fragile for a child to touch them... We still have a couple of them as a memorabilia of those years in our family house!

Glimmering houses

They are tiny & they can constitute a unique decorative for our homes, especially during Christmas! Everyone who loves lanterns & candlelight, will adore them from the first sight... Those little houses made from porcelain, clay, glass or metal, impress with their glimmering light and the shadows casted from the tea lights inside them, offering a unique atmosphere, comfort and warmth in our homes during the cold days of winter.
