Fashionista Update!

I want to share some new things I did for Fashionista... I'm so happy this opportunity came my way, jeej!! I made this still in the theme "Around the world". For the pillow cases I used transfer paper (another easy peasy DIY!). Wouldn't it be nice to keep all your travel memories in all kinds of frames so you'll never forget what a great time you've had?!

I also did this Aztec bag DIY, it was so much fun to make this bag! The Aztec trend is still going strong & this would be a nice festival or picnic bag wouldn't it?

Attic Shots Part 5: Teacups

Hi there! Are you enjoying your weekend?
I've been working on a new theme that I named "Teacups" because the 3 teacups you see on the first photo, inspired me to use this color scheme. I loved the mint, the red dots & the gradient combined together so this was my starting point! In every picture there's an easy DIY idea... For the chair I only painted the seat & the back, I think this gives a nice touch to the simple chair. The white curtain I dip dyed in a Dylon navy blue fabric dye, it's so simple! For the third picture I collected some wooden candleholders at the thrift shop & painted some of them in fresh colors. And for the last picture I made some pillow cases with dip dye & potato stamping! Off course, almost everything else is second hand or re-used as always :) I love to read your comments so let me know what you think!

Sweet Weekend

I just wanted to share with you the sweet weekend I had! After a whole lot of rain, finally the sun is shining again! The sun always puts a smile on your face doesn't it? We ate a lot of sushi, had a tasty barbecue & visited my parents getaway! They discovered a small add in the newspapers about renting a little island for one year (or maybe longer!). You can get there with a little boat & just enjoy nature, piece, food & just doing nothing... How great is that! I would love to have a getaway like this someday... I hope you've had a great weekend yourself! Now, back to reality!

DIY Rattan Vase

Inspired by A Beautiful Mess, this weekend I did a DIY with this rattan vase (IKEA) which I painted white earlier. In Tokyo I bought these cords at Tokyu Hands & I've been dying to use them!! This is a very simple DIY, you just weave the cord through the rattan & you're done! It also would be nice to fill up the whole vase with one ore more colors, there are many ways to do it! Off course you can also use other materials like wool or Zpagetti. The fun thing about this vase is that it's also a basket, which one do you like better?
