Aren't those blossoms are enchanting?

Such a spring promise!

I found them on Saturdays farmers market and of course had to take them home.

They now fill a vase in our kitchen and I hope that more buds will start to open.

My Studio Space And A Little Dream

31 01 2015

I have my studio at home in a separate room.

It's working great that way because it gives me the most flexibility between family and work.

I also love to be able to close the door to my work space in the midst of the greatest chaos with no need to clean up every single day.

Meaning - it usually looks a lot messier than on these pictures :)

The past months have been great for my business. I am really grateful for having so many wonderful customers and clients appreciating creative goods.

I do worked a lot though with basically no breaks - even on the weekends - so I feel a bit tired right now.

At least I try not to be late for bedtime.

But what about a little day break, too? I know people who swear on power naps. 

The thing is, I can't imagine going to the bedroom for a twenty minute day nap.

Neither to the sofa in front of the TV.

Just the thought of it feels energy draining instead of fueling to me and it would make me feel all lazy and old.

I know, crazy, right?

BUT - if I had a daybed or sofa right in my studio THEN...it would be all different.

The nap would theoretically still count as "work" and I would not feel too guilty :-)

You think I am just trying to make up reasons to buy a daybed? Maybe.

Let me dream a bit...

I would move the wool rack back to the front right corner closer to the window where it had already been before.

And the printer could move into the little storage room right across my table to be out of sight.

Then there would be exactly enough space for a daybed.

With plenty of nice pillows.  

I like the simple look of this one for example. 

Plus it could also serve as a bed for a guest.

We do have these two convertible sleeping chairs which look fine but honestly are not really nice to sleep on.

Well - we'll see...

What about you - do you do daytime power naps if your schedule and location allows it?

Happy Day,

It's been around zero degrees outside (not too bad though considering it's January)

but with some tulips from farmers market it feels already like spring inside!

MacroMonday: Helleborus

12 01 2015

Christmas went by but the Christmas rose will actually bloom until early spring. 

Mine are from Saturdays market und the stems were long and thick like branches with plenty of foliage.

So far I have only known the petite ones but the flower lady said, these are Helleborus as well.

Helleborus, Christrose
