Don’t you think pets – dogs in particular – make a lovely addition to a home? Such a welcomed sight to come home to everyday.
While all my homely belongings slowly make their way over the ocean soon to be placed in nice new surroundings I have discovered H&M Home. I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
Animals with hats on, fake fur, cows, rabbits and chunky knit throw blankets are just my style and I am sure a pillow with a racoon in glasses should go unnoticed? Even though I’ve been threatened with death if I add another throw cushion to our couch or bed, which is fair enough considering we had to buy another couch just to accommodate all the cushions.
Friday afternoons are my favourite time of the week – not having a job at the moment takes a bit of the joy out of it but none the less – its a wonderful feeling knowing the week is winding down, everyone is kicking back a bit and two full days linger for you to do as you please. Relax, meet a friend for tea, sit outside in the garden, read a book, have a nice big breakfast, put the alarm off and sleep in for bit.
The Friday afternoon feeling is even better, I’ve lately discovered, in autumn when the days are getting colder and big mugs of coffee, warm cardigans and soft woollen socks are happily welcomed.
I just love weekends.
No longer affiliated with witchcraft, evil spells or the taxidermy of funky smelling hunters, skulls and heads are getting prettier and adorning the walls of some of the most stylish and beautiful homes around the world. Real or (preferably) recycled, a mounted head or skull adds charm and character with options in cardboard, paper, tin, wood, metal, pottery and even jewels and lace.
Not just for the walls, heads and skulls can look classy and sophisticated anywhere when done properly.
