weekend pleasures



hey there, hope you enjoy your weekend.

it´s T H E weekend of the year for this region at least for those with the carnival gene, which I´m obviously lacking

instead I took a trip to the rummage and adopted some nice pieces for almost nothing.
- 2 chairs, not sure from which decade, maybe fifties/sixties (?) anyway I like the shape of armrests
- a little etagere/cake stand
- a small mirror with velvet covered back and golden lace
- and a large pinboard with a strong wooden frame (a little corner of the board reflects in the mirror)

also in the mirror: todays easy peasy 10 minutes craft project:
a holder for earrings, made from wooden sticks, cord and wooden beads

love this Hula Hoop Rug  and makes me think of Annes great Rag Rug

nice articel about bastisRIKE in the current Living at home magazine

I really like your new items, especially the chairs, but I must admit that I wish there were a Carnival parade near me. I miss Fasching.
