Weekend Orchid


It's Friday and I found the most beautiful white Orchid on my quick run to the supermarket during lunch. A different version of my traditional Friday flowers. I like it!

And the sunshine! Wow! I've got some serious spring vibes today! :)

Wishing you all a weekend full of sunshine and good vibes,

Melissa

Spring Blue(s)


Oh, wow. 
The last few weeks have been quite exhausting, 
but hopefully I will start feeling better and more energized
 as we move towards spring and lighter times.

With spring in mind, I felt like it was time to re-introduce
som blue tones into our livingroom. These serene and fresh shades,
together with some delicate grape hyacinths make spring feel just
a bit closer.

Until We Meet Again


 
"Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dream of
Dreams really do come true"
 
Rest in peace dear Honey

About that Zen-lifestyle...


This little white buddha is one of my favourite objects in our house at the moment. A great symbol of that zen-lifestyle I've been striving for over the last few years. Or well, I've at least tried to fit in as many zen-moments as possible in everyday life. The truth is, most days turn out pretty far from zen with kids, work, dogs, hobbies and everything else our lives are made out of in modern day society. But squeezing in a meditation practice, a relaxing walk in the woods or just sitting down with a good book is enough for me.

I actually took a pretty bad fall outside less than an hour ago. My palms were all bloody and my back took a pretty bad hit too. I fear my hands (and the rest of my body) will be pretty sore tomorrow. Enough with the ice and snow - I need spring and warmth!

Have a lovely Saturday evening!

Xo,

Melissa

Spring Ranunculus


Now if there is one flower that truly shouts spring for me, it's definately the ranunculus.
So innocent and precious - almost like a slight whisper promising warm winds
and soft rays of sunshine. 

Oh how I long for you dear Spring.

Please arrive soon breathing new life into all.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday evening and a great new week.

Apple Girl


So I went and upgraded my Iphone to the new XR. Took me a while to get used to the bigger size of this one, but now I could not imagine having a smaller size phone anymore. Imagine how things change! I just love having a larger screen ( or am I just getting older?! ;) and seeing all beautiful pictures in a bigger size!

I also ordered a lovely case with bright flowers for my new device. First, I was going to order a case with a more descrete pattern, but this one kept pulling my attention. Might have something to do with my current longin for bright colours that I recently mentioned here on the blog as well. And wow, this case really gives you that spring feeling! Exactly what I needed! :)

Have a great evening! See you soon!

Soft Tones


Hello February! 

I've grown very fond of carnations lately, because they stay beautiful for at least 2 weeks and come in such a great variety of colours. At the moment, I have two bouquets of soft yellow and one freshly bought bouquet of pink carnations.

These pics are from the dresser in our livingroom, taken last night.
Such lovely, soft tones.

Wishing you all a nice Friday and a great weekend,

Melissa
