Corners of my home

Primeiro fim-de-semana de Outono a sério. Nem quero acreditar que faço 41 anos para a semana e que esteve tanto calor até tão próximo do meu aniversário!...

Hoje de manhã tirei algumas fotos de alguns recantos de cá de casa. Esta semana montamos umas estantes no meu quarto - não ficaram lá muito bem, a madeira está empenada e, apesar de gostar e de lá querer estantes, ainda não encontrei as ideais. Aqui há uns tempos vi estes bonequinhos magnéticos numa fotografia e lembrei-me de que deveriam ficar bem no meu quarto, com os tons de vermelho que por lá predominam... Aquela moldura castanha também deve mudar de cor brevemente... :)


Na sala já só me apetece começar com as decorações de Natal - eu sei, falta ainda algum tempo, mas desde Setembro que penso nisso - nas maravilhosas bolas de Natal, que eu tanto adoro, nos arranjos que quero fazer com as miúdas, nas cores que vou escolher este ano... Queria muito ter uma taça de pé, branca, e fazer um arranjo com bolas e outras peças de vidro. Mas as que eu encontro e de que gosto são muito caras... Bem, com a ajuda da Carlota, já tenho um pequeno detalhe natalício na sala:


Alguns dos enfeites que comprei já este ano...
Some of the vintage ornaments that I already bought this year...


Mas a Conchinha também deixou a sua marca...


...e eu a minha! :)



E daqui a pouco seguimos para o Parque da Cidade, para apanhar umas folhas que a Carlota vai usar para fazer uma vassoura para a aula de Inglês - o tema é o Halloween. Olhem só as cores do nosso parque no Outono... são lindas!...

** aproveitem bem o vosso fim-de-semana!



This is the first real Autumn weekend here at Porto. Next week I'm turning 41 and I can't believe we've had such hot days so close to my birthday!


Well, this morning I took a few pictures of some corners of my home. We now have two new shelves in my bedroom, but they don't look that good, as the wood is warped. Still have to find the right ones... One of these days I saw a picture of those old magnetic kissing couples and I thought they would look good in my room - so here they are! That wooden frame is turning another colour pretty soon... :)

I feel like starting Christmas decor in the living room, although it's a little too early - don't know what's gotten into me this year, but I've been thinking about it since September! I love ornaments, especially vintage ones, and this year I'm planning on having some cute Christmas details in the girls' room - their little Christmas - so I can't stop thinking about it - the colours that I'll be using, sweets, beautiful displays... I also would love to have a footed plate in which I could display the ornaments, but the ones that I like are too expensive... Sooo, with a help from Carlota, we have this small deer in the living room, which is a nice Christmasy detail! :)

Conchinha also left her mark with the loose shoes and teddy bear... and I left mine, with another Mason jar display and a couple of plain bowls that I love.

We'll be heading off to the main city park in a while and I leave you a photo of its beautiful Fall colours...


** enjoy your weekend!

I love the little fawn added to the drink tray. It's always those little things.
