This past week I have woken up only to stumble out of bed and look at the thermometer reading for outside, and it has consistently been in the 30’s! Buurrrr… Fall has left too quickly and I miss the smell of crisp leaves and bonfires. I know having a woodburing fireplace might be messy and a hassle to always have wood handy (or maybe this is just the perfect excuse to marry a mountain man!) but don’t these look so cozy and wonderful! Wool socks, cup of coffee, a good book while sitting next to the fire! That is how everyone should spend their day.
I woke up this morning only to discover that it is freaking freezing outside!!! All I want to do is curl up in my apartment and hibernate all winter long until the sun comes back to me. This is what I will need to survive:
Stay warm this winter!!!
While in Athens, I was able to go to the famous Monastiraki Market. It was my idea of a perfect Sunday. We woke up early, took the metro to the Monastiraki Station, woke ourselves up over a cappuccino at an open air cafe while watching the hustle and bustle of the market enfold right in front of us. People watching is one of my favorite past times so I felt right at home. Every Sunday at around 6am, antique dealers and local vendors arise early to fill the streets in hopes to sell their most treasured possession. It’s simply amazing. You will find the most intricate turkish rugs, pocket watches, candle stick holders, light fixtures, flower-pot, handle knobs, and the list just goes on and on. While meandering around all morning, I made note that the Monastiraki Market would be a perfect place to find those ‘rare finds’ when T&M takes off.
I will be back, just wait!
I moved into my apartment about a year ago and I still have a few empty walls to fill. I am in my 20’s and I won’t stay in this place forever, so I am always looking for inexpensive ways to jazz up some of my blank canvases. Here are some ideas I like:)
