Summer Home Dream

Hi there!   been looking at these charming summer home by Minna helsinki in finland.
She is the author of a lovely blog Time of the Aquarius.
She bought this place in an ugly, dilapitated state  but with a magnificent sea view.  She with her husband and 3 children beautifully renovated this 1970's ugly duckling into a dream summer home.  And with a very minimal budget!
I truly admire Minna's simple but stylist decorating style...  I dream of having a white floors like that.   her style is unpretentious but so much attention to details.  I love the fact that she upcycle.  caring for the environment.

DIY TABLE when you are in a budget

I want a new table.  since my little one started walking,  our present table had became a hazard for him.   he had a couple of accidents , him running and bumping his head.   thanks god its not his eyes.   The plan is to buy a smaller one perhaps a round table.   I just love the idea of not spending anything on a piece of furniture especially dining table cost a fortune.    Anyway here's some of my favorite alternative DIY  table.

Check out this VIKA range from IKEA

My Study table used as a formal dining.....i  got  the    GLASHOLM table top and ULLRIK table leg with storage.

summer time in the city

Hello .... its been a while since i posted some of our photos.     
My little man is now a hyperactive toddler  and i am still a full time mom.  Its been a brilliant apportunity for me to have this time with my boy.  Truly a blessing....     I missed my former working life though...  the wages.....the incentives and the social life.    But i couldnt let this thing get me down now.      I wouldn't want anything in this world but watch my kid grow up.    Right now while im writing these,  he is behind me giving me a hug and nibbling my ears........Oh i couldnt get enough of these.
