Inspired by Emily Henderson - My Succulent Garden ;)

Hello Lovelies, 
I was inspired by Emily Henderson again;)

She made this video on how to create your own succulent garden, with some vintage planters.
Nothing extraordinary but I kind of felt inspired by all the greens.
And I am in need of some pretty greens;)
Here is the video and after you watched it I will show you how my garden looks like.


Great, right?
Love her;)

And here is mine...


My old planter, love em, I used this thin as a fruit bowl.
Some different succulents and some soil for the cactus family ;)


Put some "dirt" in it and place your succulents as you like...


some here, and some there...


And your garden is ready!


Love the result, the different greens and shapes.

I changed my previous table decoration and used the planter as a center piece!








I love, my pretty little garden;)
Now I have to make some more for the bedroom and studio!
What do you think of succulents?
Love em as much as I do?
Please tell me, I love to hear from you!

Kitchen at my client`s space, before and after.

Hello Lovelies, 
as I promised here are the before and after photos of the new kitchen.
At my client`s space of course.
Here are the before and during photos and of course the after.
( I apologize for some shaky and blurry photos, but I took them with my phone)

This here was the before, a tiny space, used as the library, 
unfortunately my client`s decided to get rid of the books,
 sold some and for some loved ones, 
found a new shelf.

This space would be the new kitchen!


You can see the old shelves on the left side of the room.
The old floor was a mismatched tile all over the space, including the living room, bedroom and hall.
So it is now covered with a nice wooden floor, which looks incredible pretty.;)

Here is the floor in it`s full glory;)


What we did in this space was simply covered the old tiles, 
painted the ceiling and walls.
Installed the IKEA kitchen, added some trim, 
build some shelves from reclaimed wood and changed the old ceiling lights.
And here it is! ;)




There you have a little peek into the hall.

Can you see the ceiling trim?
I love it.



Here are the shelves.





And the is the new kitchen.
Like I said in the previous post, this room need a cute rug and with it it will be finished and perfect.
But we haven`t found the piece yet.
So for now it will look like this;)

So, what do you think?
I kind of was not so pleaded with the cabinet`s color, but you get used to it.

Any suggestions?
I would love to read your comments!;)

First Project of 2015! ;)

Hello my Lovelies, 
lets start this year with a pretty simple and easy DIY!
Shall we?!;)
I think this was the easiest one I ever did.
Since I´ve sold my Jelly painting, I didin`t found a replacement for it.


The wall is used as a photo backdrop for my several paintings.
I wanted to braid a macrame for a long time, something like this...


As I got my yarn and stuff, I found some old fake capiz shells, already hung op an some strings...
So I changed my mind and made an "Capiz Macrame"!
Not braided of course but I gave em kind of a shape as seen above.
What I used:
A scissor, capiz shells a carved wooden rail and really thin wire.


I Simply put everything down on the floor and measured how log I wanted it to be, cut the wire and
rearranged the shells.
Than tied two loops which were former attached to the shells on to the rail and hung it up on my wall.
Simple and easy;)


It doesn`t look too perfect or even bit I like it that way;)


I love how the shells bounce back the light and the slight shimmer and glitz.




So what do you think of my latest DIY?
Like it?
Maybe I will braid one of the original macrame`s you`ll never know;)
Love to hear from you;)

The best projects of 2014!

Hello my Lovelies,  I hope you had a pretty nice start to this new 2015!;)
Happy New Year to all of you!


The year is over! What else to do as a quick recap!
Shall we?
I don`t know how about you, but 2014 was a game changer for me.
All I was interested in is getting better and healthier. 

(Many things in my diet have changed since than but I am still vegan and planning to 
write another blog on that topic, lets see how this works out...)

And that reflected on my blog as well.
I didn`t post as much as I wanted to.
And that is a thing I want to change in 2015 for sure!


So here we go, my best projects in no particular order...
just click on the photo if you like to see them again;)

First Project of 2014!


A quick and easy Bench remodel!


The Kitchen reveal!


The hall reveal!


My Exhibition "COLORS"!


Gold & neon Pink Brick Bookends!


The Evolution of a Door!


Begin to look like Christmas!


A cute little Santa painting!


Of course I made some more paintings and prints.

Please tell my what you like to see in 2015!
More DIY?
More Knock Offs?
More Paintings?
I would love to know!
So I can make this blog more interesting for all of you!


I hope you enjoyed this post tour and I want to thank you all my dear readers,
for support and interest!
 I want to thank you all, who featured my blog or posts in 2014!
That was awesome;)
Let`s open our arms to a new and exciting 2015!
Love & hugs

I know Christmas is over, but...

Hello Lovelies, 
I know Christmas is over, but I am still kind of in that spirit...
Maybe it is because we finally had snow and all looks so pretty, 
and the tree is still up, so, you may have to deal with some Christmas photos for a while...
Maybe till the 15th  of January ;)

Here is a little Santa painting I made as decoration for the buffet.



Cute, right?

And here are just some inspirational photos from around the web, maybe for the next Christmas?
Enjoy;)

A pretty table with some logs.


Simple but beautiful;)


Love the wreath!


This one is great too, just use clay to make these.


Or make these out of clay too!


If you like the painting, come and check out my ETSY shop 
and maybe you`ll find something more...
I wish you all a pretty start for 2015!
May the new year bring you everything you wish for!
Love & hugs
Lydia
