Random Happy Home


Pin It

There is not much going on at home, for the moment. I feel like I'm waiting for something - I think it's spring I'm waiting for. Lots of small stuff are piling up on the cabinets. Meanwhile, the rooms have totally lost their holiday decorations and are back to normal. This is quite interesting, because in the past few years you could see Christmas stuff even in the first days of March :)) The plants and flowers are looking good and starting to get new life.




Speaking of flowers, I totally forgot to plant my bulbs for the winter. I should have done it ages ago - and I clearly remember buying this hyacinth bulb on the 14th of October. It should have been in full bloom by now, silly me. But I always say, better late than never - so I shall plant tulips and hyacinths tomorrow.




Everything stands still in the living room. Having friends over last weekend means lots of poufs and pillows for extra seating on the floor. And far in the back, there is a box full of yarn balls. I feel like crocheting something for early spring, perhaps in mint shades.




And here is the proof, dear ladies: I finally took down the decorations from the white Christmas tree, put them in the Christmas box and stored the box up on a shelf in the balcony, until next time. That feels liberating!




Sneak peek of the orchid getting ready to burst out with an elegant crown of amazing sensual flowers. Don't worry, I'll keep you informed once they have bloomed :)




And a bonus pic: there is still plenty of snow outside. Looking at my outfit, I wonder why I was dressed just like the Christmas elf?!

    1. Yes, I clearly remember your beautiful pics. I think it's the spirit of the time; each year is different and WE are a little bit different, as well :)

    1. Thank you, Laura, but I must admit I don't have a fireplace. That is a vintage cabinet that belonged to my great grandfather :)

    1. Oh, Janne, you are the only one to notice picture number two (I am very proud of it, I was just playing with the camera but I wish that many of my pics would look like that). And yes, I run an "open house" where my (younger, unmarried) friends are welcome anytime they want. We basically listen to lots of music and laugh our hearts out ;)
