First snow ... cozy lights...

Yesterday the first snow fell... (and from the look and 'feel' of it, it's gonna be another very cold winter *brrrr*)

The good thing is... I love the cozy lights of candles and Christmas decoration.

While cleaning out the cellar, I found dozens of old glass jars hubby's grandmother used for her home-made marmelade. Really tons of them. I decided to use them as wind lights throughout the house:)

This could become my favorite vest :)

...I've been searching for a Vintage-style vest for a while now... and found this one in an online shop :)

Doesn't this scream 70's to you :)

Ordered it straight away :) (together with the awesome print-shirt). 

This may very well become my favorite vest :)

Scandinavian Kitchens.... my new obsession.... :)

The next kitchen project my baby and I will tackle, will definitely be a Scandinavian style kitchen. I've been obsessed with this lately. Take a look a these pretties here:

 ...seriously... Izzzzz needs to have these  built-in seats/benches.......

....okay, don't need this kitchen... but can I have the chair and the doggie please?!?!?....

 ... a mirror in the kitchen... how awesome is that? (very!)...

... may I repeat.... Izzzzzz wants a bench! ....

...yup... I could totally go for this color scheme.... *happy sigh*...

(all pretties taken from the gorgeous blog of Susan Serra. Go here for more :)

Ad for the "Adobe Photoshop Day Cream" :))))

It's been a tough couple of days. My Mom was taken to hospital on Monday and had to have heart surgery. Once again, I realized how important it is to cling to hope and to have loved ones around you to offer support and help you to stay strong. 

Thanks, baby for always being there for me! Thanks also to all my friends near and far, for expressing their sympathy and for including us in their prayers and for all the well-wishes and good thoughts sent our way.

What hope means

Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day

Hope is to remain positive when going gets tough
hope is seeking more when others think u had enough

What hope means

Hope is dreaming of tommorow
Hope is simmering under sorrow

Hope is sparkles when tears are in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing and beautiful things never die

What hope means

Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together

Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost.....

I fell in love...

...with this GORGEOUS fake fur bag
by the Pittsburgh artist Suz Pisano...

Here are another two bags designed by her.
She's a genius....

To learn more about her and her art go here.

City Lights....

...Took an evening stroll through town...

(and yes... I'm a sucker for night lights)

Lamp by Philippe Starck...

I ADORE this outdoor lamp by Philippe Starck.
(Availabe via Dedon)

I think it would be perfect for my terrace :)
