Lately

Oops, it’s been several months since I posted here. I haven’t forgotten about my 2016 planners, I will take some pictures and will show them to you next time.

I’ve been streamlining my life recently. The stress of trying to conceive got to much, so I have decided to take it easy this year. I want to focus more on little things that bring me joy and happiness, and at this time that means babysitting for family members (I love babies!), gardening, cooking and working on my house.

Here are the newest installations in the living room/sewing room:

An Ikea Varde shelving (the same one I have in my kitchen and also on my kitchen windowsill) for some of my books. This shelving can handle a lot as there are about 100 books there. And my little collection of magnetic butterflies. I am having fun putting them everywhere, like on that pink metal plant pot on the shelving).

I grew up in a household full of books (the norm when your father is a writer and a professor), so books are a treasure in my own house. At the moment, I am into spiritual books and wholefood cookbooks.

Do you also hoard books? Please share any of your book storage.

  1. Hi! The Varde shelving with the books looks really great, I never thought of using that unit out of the kitchen. Can I ask, How much weight can the Varde two shelf 5 hook hold? It doesn’t say online.

    Great ideas here, thanks for the inspiration!

    • Yes, you can use that Varde shelving in any room really. I don’t know exactly how much weight it can handle but it is very solid and can handle a lot.
