this should have been yesterday's post!

This should have been yesterday's post! Meaning: white wednesday's post! BUT... my son took over my computer!!!! His computer has been having some problems. So he asked if he could use mine for a while and i ended up not having it for the night!!!! (which is the time of the day i usually have time to blog and visit you!!!). Anyway i just couldn't say no!; could i?! You know! When they make those sad eyes and say those heart conquering "pleaseeeeees"???!!!!!
So... here it is today my white wednesday post, showing the final result on my winter outdoor decor for the more sunny days that follow ( i hope!!!!). Some of the things still need some change, but it is basically this. I'll probably change the heart shaped pillow for a new one that i will make myself!
Anyway!.... have been really busy making some pillows to sell to some friends! I'll show you some photos of course!!! I'm thinking secretely about some more stuff! - - chuuuuut!!! tell you later!
Hope you have already checked others white wednesday's things; if you didn't it is never too late -
Happy thursday!

2nd post today, PLEASE do check it!!




It's cold outside!!!

Now that the sun usually comes out more often and is a little bit hotter, i've uncovered my outdoor sofas and added a cosy wintery look to it! This is the result on one of the sofas. I've used soft shades of white, a splash of earthy brown and some furs to give it a "hot nest" touch. I have to say that they are very confortable and warm and that, when i light my outdoors mexican fireplace, it's my favourite place in the garden! I love to seat there and drink my after launch coffee chatting with my husband and watching my children play! Pure magical moments!...

What a glorious day we have today!!!! The sun is out and shining! Can't remember last time it happened!!! Spring is coming!!; and my flowers are starting to bloom! Sleeping beauty Verónica woke up in a good mood and i feel happy!
Last week spent time doing spring cleaning and getting the house ready for buyers' visits. I have a kind of old fashioned wooden floor.; meaning you need to deep clean it and than protect it with wax. The smell is irresistible, but it's lot of work! Anyway it's done and this week i'll spend time doing what i love the most!!! - decorating!
I also changed my outdoor decor!; but that will have to wait for tomorrow.
Meanwhile enjoy some photos from my garden and... .... ... thanks sooooooooo very much for all the sweet comments!Happy Monday!

lay on the sofa and relax...

I know wednesday is far gone, but i felt like showing you one of my favourite places on the house - my living room sofa!!! I love this sofa! It's a leather sofa that we bought before we got married!
My living room has a white decor based on different shades of white and textures for about 8 years now! BUT ... i love to change the pillows! This year bought on sale the shiny one from zara.
I love to lay there and relax: read, watch tv, put my baby to sleep, etc... But who wouldn't?! Doesn't it look cosy?!

here they are!

Here they are! Last photos on my baby's party!
I used old bottles for flowers and on some of them wrote a small childish text; hanged some butterflies from ballons and decorated the tablecloth. The hanging ballons were a hit!! They not only made a dramatic effect, but also completed the party!! Children spent the whole party jumping trying to catch them and than letting them lose to catch them again!!!
The gift bags were also decorated according to the theme and filled with candies and some small toys!
As my husband says:" the party was a success!".
Happy tuesday!

So... yesterday my baby turned 2 and we had a small party; invited some children and had some fun. I did a butterfly themed party. These are only some of the photos! I'll show you the remaining ones tomorrow.
I'm soooooo proud of my birthday cake! It turned out really tasty and looks soooo pretty, don't you think?!
Happy new week!
