Indoor Bonfires

Standard

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.

Perfect for a cabin

Modern

I know you can't see the full fire place, but these socks are incredible!

this is kind of enchanting to me.

simple.

Hibernation Mode.

Standard

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:

Well obviously I will be needing this bed!

Fireplace is a necessity. Wood burning is preferred.

cozy sweater!

This dress to romp around in.

This is multifunctional; stair stepper while expanding my mind!

Everyone needs a comfy chair to snuggle up in and this would be mine!

Coffee is a must., especially in that mug.

I love me some good smelling candles.

Stay warm this winter!!!

Monastiraki Flea Market

Standard

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.

Just the most beautiful pottery

I wonder what is inside?

I was obsessed with these. simply gorgeous.

Welp, I won't be learning Greek anytime soon:)

It would take a lifetime to get through all these

Only a matter of time

So many wonderful trinkets!

The perfect daybed

I really wanted this but the guy was charging 40 euro!

Lusting over.

I would love to put this in a child's room someday:)

obsessed with this pattern

Trunks!

I will be back, just wait!

besos:)

What to do with an empty wall?

Standard

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:)
