Fall recap

Hello! everyone. It's been a strange month that had me take an unexpected turn. You know how crazy I am with style but I felt like taking a break of it since I fell in love with equestrian style. I was suddenly so satisfied with my looks that I felt I had no more to offer to you since my outfits are very simple and get a lot of repeat.

So there happened a shift in my interests towards home decoration and crochet. But I wanted to take a break from the internet and I wasn't sure how to demonstrate on my blog what my interests are at the moment.
It took me a bit of time to decide that the best approach is it . So here we go......

My necklace collection and the decor on my night table

From this old poster and frame this

I even found an incredible relaxing way to occupy my hands now that I gave up smoking and that's crochet. It's a whole new world for and is full of possibilities for home decor and accessories like bags and scarves.

I'm working on this lace piece to add to a curtain on my kitchen window

 And I made these pillows from burlap and lace ( this one is machine made)

I love how these materials match together - the harshness of burlap and the delicacy of the lace .
I have even bought a couple of magazines and I have so many projects on the way to last me the whole winter.
Things around here -politically speaking -are tough and it;s hard to live in a country that I feel it goes totally the wrong way and there seems to be no way to stop it.

That's all for now, I quess I have to post more cause I missed it and follow all you lovely ladies again.


  1. Nice to see you again! It's great when you find a style that feels completely right, isn't it? (I go through those phases myself, but they don't seem to stick.)

    I don't even know what to say about the completely idiotic and cruel austerity (for everybody but the super-rich, of course) programmes that are plaguing Europe, and Greece is getting it so much worse than the rest of us. I can only hope that eventually sanity triumphs, because this is not working.

    And now I also want to get out my crocheting supplies and make something!

  2. You have been busy, despite your blogging break!
    Well done for giving up smoking, crochet seems a great way to help that process, and I love what you have made. xxx

  3. So happy to see you look great! I understand completely your sentiments about your country...I do hope things turn around.

  4. Great to see you Angie, and you are looking wonderful. Hooray for you, quitting the cigarettes and taking up crochet! I like what you've done with it, it inspires me : >

  5. Glad you are back! And in celebration i have nominated you for a sunshine award! Go to my blog for details! Hope to hear more from you soon!

  6. Oh, I love the pillows of burlap and lace!

  7. Congratulations on giving up smoking! NOT an easy thing to do. Fashion and design are such creative and positive things to do when things are difficult. You look fabulous!
