Hello Friday.... too early for Christmas?

Living in the Netherlands means Christmas is somewhat surpassed until after Sinterklaas. A Dutch traditional festivity for young kids on the 5th of December. A good thing as kids love it but I am so ready for all the Christmas decorations, tasty food and inspirations. I will be going to Oslo this year to visit my sister and am looking forward to some Scandinavian Christmas input. 

I've put together a shopping Favorite Friday with things that have already caught my eye. Being it as decorations or as a present for under the tree... 

Golden Merry Christmas garland (HEMA) - Bamboo sun mirror (ENSUUS) - Golden stars garland (numero 74) - Rocky Mountain pillows (SLOOP) - Consilium vase (SCANDINAVIAFORM) - white light garland (IKEA) - recipe for fruit minced pies (DONNA HAY) - Fir Fir plate and mug (HOUSE OF RYM) - Glasilium vase (SCANDINAVIAFORM)

I am looking forward to continuing this path of inspirational shoppings for you. I find it excites me more at the moment than posting an image of an interior and writing about it. Will try to make it as global as possible. Happy Friday and happy shopping.

Hello Friday.... Shopping tips inspired by Pinterest

Whenever I squeeze my lower lip between my fingers my husband says 'STOP!, you are redecorating in your mind'. Guilty for sure!! So instead of decorating in my mind I will decorate on my Mac. Gives me the pleasure of venting out my thoughts and might give you some inspiration.

Let's start with a playroom on Pinterest that inspired me. I love the entire room and you'll find more images on my board. The nook that inspired me is here.

Plywood to make a chalkboard for the wall (available at your local DIY warehouse)
OYOY puzzle me
Liewood storage baskets
House Doctor wall lamp
Tiles rug from recycled PET bottles by Brita Sweden (nominated for the FORMEX award!)
my favorite poster at the moment Miniwilla 'Not a Black Swan'
Jotun paint colour 'Rose Basket' (love the way they describe this colour on their site)
The book 'This is not my hat' by Jon Klassen (oh please transform his images into posters I'd be a huge fan!!!)
the Odd couple by Danish Superliving
This sweet little chair by Mum and Dad Factory is the best!!

And walls covered in pictures. I have a square meter above the fire place covered with memories and little quotes I like. This image in the centre is one that I spotted on Pinterest by Urban Outfitters. When I spotted it I immediately wanted to gather some of my favourite prints online. Don't forget... I live in a men dominated household. Cars are very much a part of my day to day life.
