The Great Outdoors

Since I have slightly neglected our little garden, we decided to go to the markets the past weekend, and grab bundles of flowers, succulents, soil, and clay pots that we needed for the home.

I also had an extra few hours the next morning to enjoy, because a scheduled meeting was delayed until the latter part of the day. So, I was very productive—hopefully seasonal crafting sessions will arise again soon. But, for now, I am working on some outdoor décor projects. If time permits, I will try to keep you posted on some of those in the near future.

Here’s another bold piece that I currently love from the Gudrun Sjoden home collection. This colourful Leo doormat is perfect for showing some style outdoors. It’s very durable and made from coir, the same fibres found from the husk of coconut fruit. We usually have an inside shoe rack to keep some footwear, so having this outside doormat will be very helpful for entries beforehand, especially for wellies or garden boots, etc. There's an elephant version of it here as well.

The Porla embroidered throw (seen below) has a plush feel to it, and even though it’s wool, it did not bother me at all like most wool. I took a very brief moment for a cosy encounter, and wrapped myself in the throw for a morning cuppa. This will also work well as a sitting blanket for a weekend outing or lunch in the park, or even as an inside accent alongside your room décor.

Have you done any home revamping or decorating lately?


*Lastly, I wanted to share a feature that I was honoured to be a part of this week. A couple weeks ago, I did an interview with Berlin online magazine REglam, which focusses on women’s health and empowerment. It was featured earlier this week. You can view it here.

  12. It must be nice to work on your garden again. The design on that throw is so charming and it looks so cozy and plush... perfect for snuggling on a chilly day. I've been revamping the storage in our home recently.

  14. I love the Camus quote and your throw. I'm always very careful not to buy wool which is itchy! I'm waiting to plant some winter flowers in our pots but it's been far too wet here this week. Hopefully the sunshine will return. Enjoy your weekend!

  15. That throw is lovely! I need to embrace the philosophy that fall and spring are akin--and do some fall reorganizing! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

    Liebe Madison, ich bin überzeugt davon, im Garten zu arbeiten macht glücklich und ich drücke Euch die Daumen, dass alles gut wächst! Wir machen ständig etwas an unserem Haus, zuletzt haben wir unseren Dampfgarer reparieren lassen. Leider war das nicht billig, aber ich finde es gar nicht schön, kaputte Geräte daheim zu haben. Die Türmatte ist sehr lustig :) Ich wünsche Dir eine tolle neue Woche!

    Alles Liebe von Rena
