Never-Ending Christmas


Pin It

Hello, dear friends, it's great to be back online! I hope you all had a wonderful time during the winter holidays and that this new year is already on the right track for each one of you, with exciting surprises and new projects!
Please don't be alarmed by the title of this post, ha ha! I KNOW it's been 6 weeks since Christmas, but for me it feels wonderful even now, for a number of good reasons:
a) In January I've received many incredible heart-felt and hand-crafted gifts from my best friends online (and this post is all about the gifts!)
b) My circle of friends feels like the best family ever - and despite our real job during the week days, we've managed to spend lots of time together in impromptu evenings and long board-game session during the weekends. So my days are full;
c) Like any weather-dependent Leo, the grey skies and cold weather make me sleepy... and lazy (for which I am very, very sorry!).

So, back to my presents: the first one to come (pictured above) was from Ana-Marija from Carpe Diem, the lady with the greatest smile in the world. She overwhelmed me, by making these adorable softies just for me, go figure! The gingham cats are meant to be a window treatment, so stay around and I'll show you where these cuddly felines are residing in my home!



Next, another incredible surprise, which left me speechless: the whimsical heart with a twist, hand made by lovely Lisa from Lisa Sol. Dusty pink, delicate lace and a handsome button - this is now my key ingredient to my Valentines decor in the little apartment.



And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, here comes a little package sent by Ann from Love Making Things. She included a beautiful hand-printed card which makes me ready for the next summer, one of her famous handmade ornaments (yes: it is gingham, again - and it's a heart, again! The stars aligned...) and as a bonus the cutest gift tags. They were on sale at M&S and she couldn't help herself - I understand it too well, Ann!

So these are my presents from Croatia, Norway and UK. A never-ending Christmas full of wonder - I just put away the Xmas decorations like 5 days ago. I've taken lots and lots of pics (with my new DSLR, which I don't know how to use properly) so I can't wait to share the new details of my home with you!

    1. Ana, you are too sweet - Junior and Anais were very interested in the soft cats, but I called dibs on them and now they sit in the bedroom window, where my furry friends are not allowed anymore. And I'll post the pictures very soon ;)
