Hello my lovelies!

Please allow me to introduce to you Mrs. Sierra at Ocean Dreams who is willing to give us some advise on how to achieve a Modern Interior look for our homes, using unique furniture, accessories and lighting.

Set Aside Time During
Your Holiday and Create a Magnificent Modern

If you desire to redecorate your home with a modern appeal
there are many accessories and design elements that you can choose from to
create the look you desire. Clean lines and neutral background tones are two
ideas that you can consider when redesigning your home and making it modern.
Offset your neutral tones with bright colors and add supporting elements such

Introducing Sherika at Passionately Perfect

Hello everyone, I'm Sherika over at Passionately Perfect! I'm so honored Olga allowed me to come share my lamp transformation with her wonderful followers!

I'm currently in a gold and wood stage in my life!

I either want everything glamorous gold or rustic wood, my husband is probably happy for the masculinity that has suddenly come in to play!

I have a few lamps around the house that really needed some sprucing up! 

DIY: Bottles & Jars!

The past few days I've been wandering in one of my oldest member's blog Eva's blog. She is also Greek as I am, and I'm amazed of how talented and creative this girl is! She has made so many inspiring crafts... I couldn't choose which one to post today! So, for starters I decided to show off her handpainted bottles and jars! Simple empty bottles of whiskey, milk, water, that in her hands are being transformed to real handmade treasures! Please, see for yourselves and enjoy these eye candies!

Simple Easy Wall Update

I was at a birthday party the other day that our good family friend Maria and her husband threw for their little boys. When I had first visited their house, their kids room had a simple, beige, boring wall color. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of this before wall (and why should I shoot a simple, beige, boring wall!) but 'm sure you can picture this in your mind!. So now when I entered the same room a surprise was waiting for me. The hubby had painted the walls in such a way to create a highway scene, used colours to create the ground effect and then placed some McQueen stickers on. So simple! So easy! So much impact! The boys were really excited with the outcome! And I was amazed by the result!

Feat. Joy-n-Jesus

Today, I'm featuring a very sweet girl with a very beautiful name... Jewels!
She is the author of the blog Joy-n-Jesus and is a very creative and crafty young woman!
Well, take a look here-below at what she's made for Christmas and then hop on over to her blog and leave a sweet comment. I know this would make her day!


Happy Friday! Don't you love Fridays? Oh, I do! They mean more time with family and it always gives me the motivation to do something fun! Here is what I did!
So After seeing my sweet and creative friend Tanya's Advent Calendar it inspired me to create this. I just love banners, and this was fun and easy! I started by digging through a past scrapbooking kit from Personal Scrapper, grabbed some papers and was off. I loved the polka dot one so I found papers that had the same color scheme and laid them across my kitchen table.  Then I measured my fire place mantel from one end to the other, which was about 63, and divided that by 25. With my measurements I knew that I could make each piece 2 to 2.5 inches and that is what I did and cut the triangle at the bottom for effect. Just like my girl "T." 
With all 25 spread across my table I cut the twine the length of the fire place mantel and placed a thin line of glue on #1 first and then slowly made my way down the twine: glue, twine, glue, twine...
 On the back we placed the activities we will do each day. Or if you don't want to plan ahead too much you can do a couple at a time. I adhered the 3x5 card with a small piece of scotch tape so we could remove on each day. If you want some great ideas for activities you can check out Little Joyful Moments or Tanya's post.
 And here is what it looked like all finished on the fire place. 

Have a blessed Friday and may the JOY of Christmas bless you and your family!

And there's more.....

Hey! Hey! Hope your December is peaceful and you are able to stop and take in the many Joys of the Lord this Christmas season!  I am sure the Christmas cards are starting to roll in and pile up on those counters. Today I want to share a simple Christmas Card Solution I created. I used twine, ornaments, mini stockings, and all the cards people send us. Check out the video below...
Christmas Cards are one of the precious joys in the Christmas season! Especially the ones with pictures!  Love the simplicity of a card, love that it is not overspending, yet it blesses others and 
expresses the true meaning of Christmas!

   If you are interested I picked up the stockings at in the dollar bin at Target (that's my spot lately) :) and also picked up the bling, mini, red ornaments which I love! Hope you enjoy!

Don't forget to check out the giveaway I am doing Here! Have a blessed day, and enjoy today!

DIY: Santa's Footprints & Christmas Crafts

First of all I wouId like to thank all of you my lovely readers for your support and for making my little blog growing steadily! Yesterday I reached 100 followers and I feel so grateful for this! A big thanks to all of you!

Now... onto Christmas season! Here is a little trick on how to create Santa's footprints, which is especially effective for the little ones! You just take some soda, or flour, or you can buy plastic snow and you sprinkle around the perimeter of a boot. Now, think of the children's faces when they get up in the morning and see the footprints next to the presents! I think this is an awesome idea and... well it is effective for me too! After all, aren't we all kinds during the Christmas season? This tip was found and created by my beloved Funky Junk Interiors.

House Tour: A House in Poland

I knew I had to share it with you guys!
Well, enough talk... time to check out this gorgeous house!

DIY: Tissue Paper Christmas Tree

Goodmorning my precious readers!

For today, another DIY project capturing the Christmas spirit. There are so many creative ladies out there with so many fantastic projects which I find in the link parties I visit every week.  I didn't know which one to choose. One is better than the other! But this one is really cute and easy to make and most important... won't cost you almost anything as it is made out of tissue paper! So pick your favorite design of tissue paper, buy a styrofoam tree foam, get some glue and there you go:

Oh! the weather outside is frightful 
but the fire is so delightful
and since we have no place to go
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Goodmorning everyone!

But until that time comes that we get to see Christmas and snow at the same time, I have something really really cute resembling to white Christmas! It is snow globes that you can very easily make on your own. They were found during my visits to the link parties and is made by the amazing blog It's Overflowing.

My Living Room

Today I'm not gonna show you any of those stylistic and great rooms that I use to, like those from my beloved Houzz. Today's room is not created by an interior decorator... it is made by me and it is my one and only simple and humble Living Room! The pictures were taken a week ago, before we decorate for Christmas. Notice the sunshine outside? It is 18C here in Greece these days! Hope this will change for Christmas. Oh I'm mumbling again! So see the pics below and then I'll tell you what I like, what I don't and what I need to change. So, please follow me and let me tour you!

A last minute's sort of Advent Calendar

Hello my stardusted readers!

Today it was a crazy day for me. I was super busy as it was my birthday and I had to prepare the house for some good friends and family that were coming over.Meanwhile I head over to IKEA for some stuff that I wanted and there I saw some cute Christmas little paper bags. I liked them so much that I had to buy them without knowing what I would do with them. When all the visitors left from our mini party (great cake by the way!) I came up with an idea! Since tomorrow - well...actually today - is the 1st of December I would make    a kind of an advent calendar! So, I put a number on each one of them, filled them with kid's stuff and... wanna see my creation?

I've been awarded!


Today when I opened up my e-mails I saw that I had received an award. An award? Me? For what? And from whom?

Eclectic Living

Are you a free spirit? Is your characteristic the freedom of expression? Are you the type of person who likes living outside of the box? Then most likely you enjoy living eclectically and most probable you own such a room if not an entire house. 
An eclectic style is full of unexpected items, including at least two or more decor styles. 
An eclectic room may be defined by play with color, shape or function. It is never boring. But you have to be careful if you try to attempt this style, as you need to pay attention to each object you include. 
Take a look at the following fantastic eclectic rooms for instance and see how it works. It may help you out and get some more ideas.
