This time of year always makes me wish I had a Country place. I love the outdoors and I especially love the Fall when all the leaves are changing colors and the sun surprises you with a warm day. Sitting outside covered in a wool blanket, having a cup of tea and reading a magazine or knitting is one of my favorite things to do. It makes me feel like there is an endless amount of possibilities around the corner...
This is Regina who was in from Brazil to meet her new granddaughter (her daughter is sitting next to her) and she created this gorgeous bunny with big pink ears.
This is an action photo of Isa (Regina's daughter) who decided to make this cute little Hampster. He's still a work in progress. Truth be told Isa's a bit
obsessive detail oriented when it comes to her needle felting so it took her a little longer.
and finally this is our teacher - the lovely and talented Samantha who is holding this totally real looking gnome (admit it, you'd scream if you woke up and saw him at the foot of your bed) . Sam is a fiber genius. If there was a Superhero that improved peoples lives with knitted and felted stuff Sam would be it. Hey she already does that so I think I'll call her "Fiberwoman" (sorry Sam for when you read this!).
Het Atelier has done some very nice projects but this one is my favorite. The combination of rustic and contemporary as well as contemporary and antique elements has my heart beating off the charts. I love the textured cement floor, irregular built in shelving and black accessories combined with all that marble in the kitchen.
This glass pendant light adds just the right amount of color in this neutral space!
Totally smitten with the wood plank flooring.
This powder room is just so cool! Refined, simple and ethnic all at once.
If I could re-do my small bathroom I would do it like this.

Last weekend I posted about the test flowers we bought for my brother's impending wedding. These are the three centerpieces that my soon to be sister in law Luisa made. Aren't they pretty! I just love the pop of color from the two tone roses. The last bouquet also has the pearl garland which adds a touch of wedding glamour.
I got up early this morning to meet my brother and his fiancée at the flower wholesaler to pick up some potential flowers for their wedding centerpieces. So many flowers to choose from but these are the ones we liked the best (so far) - there are some other flowers in the back that you can't see but I don't want to spoil the surprise so I'm only showing you the front....gotta leave something out for now.
