It's getting colder and I try to create a little bit of autumn ambiance in between all the mess I have on my shelves and dressers. We had to evacuate a lot of things from the floor because our baby started to crawl! Until we have found a new place for our plants and baskets with newspapers and magazines, they block precious decoration space :) But it's such a joy to see our baby like that! He is almost 8 months old and such a darling.
We finally got new wallpaper in our room. The off-white walls look very good, I just still have to get used to the taupe wall. It looks a little bit dark. But before our walls were bright yellow, it's not surprising that it looks so much calmer and more serious to me now. But I like it and it's a perfect base for the decoration I'm planning!
I also progress in the baby's room, it's almost finished now. I will post pictures next time, it became adorable! There are still a few shelves missing. And my sweet little boy will move in only in a few weeks, it breaks my heart to leave him in his own room...
Today I went to a "brocante", a flea market. Ahhhh what treasures they had! I forgot to bring the camera. I bought some wonderful old vintage postcards with babies, children and young ladies and gentlemen on them, some lace ribbon and some more old French books I use to make vintage crafts. I have so many ideas (and so little time)... I hope I will have soon something nice to show you.
I have to tell you something about the lace ribbons and why I was a little bit upset when I bought them. A few years ago, my grandmother gave me all her lace ribbons she had, and she had a lot, the nicest and finest lace you can imagine. She had a shop where she sold them in the 60ies/70ies. I decided that I would never use them and sold them on Ebay. The lucky buyer (maybe she's among you!) got them all for a very cheap price. Today I really regret that I sold them and that I have to go now to flea markets to find similar lace for my crafts...
Anyway, I wish you a wunderful fall season and enjoy your first pumpkin soup. We will, we gathered our huge pumpkin directly from the field two weeks ago!
