Long weekend

This weekend we're driving to the country and these pictures put me right in the mood for a long weekend and a change of scenery. Camera, a good book & long walks is the simple plan. 

Ah, spring, finally...
Have a gorgeous weekend!

Leaving Scandinavia behind for a while, how about hopping over to the South of France? Monte-Arena hotel near Uzès has been filed in my brain as the place to head for if I'm ever lucky enough to be in that part of the globe (oh I so hope so!).

B is for

...bath, bed, books, bubbles - perfect weekend treats.

I think often beauty lies in what's left out - old, half-empty spaces that kindle a myriad of thoughts, ideas, memories, dreams. And plenty of room to breathe, dance, lie on the floor & stare at the ceiling. I think that's why I love the feeling you get when you first tread the floorboards of a brand new home, before all the removal boxes are unopened and anything is still possible. 

(May this also serve as a pep talk for myself to start decluttering...)

A lovely weekend to you all, deep breaths. x

Today's colour ∼ white

Today's mood ∼ tranquil.

(My minuscule herb garden of laurel, rosemary & violets, and the point where wood & lino meet. We're lucky to have a large hallway/lobby, but for now it's in dire straits. At the moment the dream is to add some pale grey&white concrete tiles, something simple and subtle. And a huge old cupboard of course.)

(Miniyrttitarhassani laakeria, rosmariinia ja orvokkeja. Ja vilaus kohdasta, jossa puu- ja muovilattiat kohtaavat. Isosta eteisaulasta olen onnellinen, mutta retuperällähän tuo vielä on. Tällä hetkellä on haaveissa vaaleanharmaa-valkoiset betonilaatat, jotakin simppeliä ja sopivan rosoista joka tapauksessa. Ja valtaisa vanha kaappi tottakai.)

ColetteBream's Etsy collection looks so wonderfully simple, tender and dreamy - perfect for a little person's nook.

Sweet dreams...

Oh to be elegantly organised like this (or even organised...). 

P.S. Sorry for the silence as of late - just been caught up with the daily humdrum. 

P.P.S. Thank you beautiful Michelle for making my day 

P.S.S. Edit: just noticed I'd written P.P.S. in the sentence above, whoops :)
