european mood


I love that photo to the right. I've been admiring it for months and of course it's no longer available. When I saw that 'C'est Manifique' wallpaper to the left my heart ached a little. I'm wondering if this is the wallpaper I've been waiting to buy and have framed. Not bad to have a European mood on the walls, gorgeous retro sketches that remind me that Paris, London and Venice aren't really far away.

On a personal note: I don't do sick well. I don't think I know how to be sick. So, this morning, instead of continuing to relax, I decided to paint one chair with white gloss paint. When I had finished the chair I moved on to the bathroom's door frame. And when that one was finished I ... ahem ... I kind of painted the bathroom walls. Then I ran out of paint so I didn't manage to finish them. But the chair, door frame and freshly painted walls are looking really good – I'm telling ya! This would be me recovering from being sick. I'm waiting to see the look on hubby's face when he comes home from work. And I have a speech prepared on how my behaviour is perfectly normal, perfectly.

Enjoy your day!

  3. ahhhhhhhhhh be still my heart. I NEED that wallpaper NOW. And I won't settle for just a small frame, I need to cover every single part of the house with it so anywhere I look I can imagine I am on the lawn, looking up at the eiffel tower. or the venetian canals. Now I"ll have to explain how THAT is perfectly normal to my boyfriend.

    Glad you're feeling better! I don't think I have that much energy when I"m NOT sick :)

  11. it's the reason i can't return to australia, i'm always in a european mood. love that wallpaper, might get it to frame.

    i used to be terrible at being sick, now i recognise it's my body's demand that i be still, for once.

    but it's nice to have all that painted!
