What 's New in New Year? B4 & After

Hope Everyone had a great & peaceful New Year...
New Year, New SSS with a SUBTLE ones at D´Box

As I see... all you ladies, had a blast, goodbying 2010. My & your family gatherings, bondings sharing and giving, makes me so happy. I am so blessed to have my cousins & extended family in Sweden. I created my life with my family and friends, here coz I am away from home & dear family. I shared what I have and what I got. I am blessed, I found the blogging thingy, too. This makes my life easier. I can share my likes, my life and my world with you, my cyber friends. Thank you so much for all the inspirational words, the comments and the never ending visits. I do appreciate it. Thank you once again for being a friend.

In D´Box, I don't know what to start. I been into tablescaping and table top, the last half year of 2011 and or on & off. I missed SSS every week-end. It's too much to hang on. The projects at home grows fast too. And of course, I am a full-time career woman, a full-time housewife, a full-time mum and don't forget I have all my daily activities. I dance 5x a week and have my gym & classes at work too. Arrrgghhh... can I cope up all this? A matter of fact, I do, however, the question is, shall I manage, for how long? I do murmured "Hopefully, I do" The word I have in my mind is "PRIORITISE" and I do prioritise the things it need my priority. So, here was the busy life at home....

Remember, our house is absolutely, "petité"? It was a bit of a hard to do a DIY. I am not an interior designer and having one was not an answer either, or maybe my wallet was the problem, §:-) Anyhow, both me and GH gave a try, if it goes well, "fair enough", if it goes bad, though luck". So, then we started!!!

Well, simply said and we done the revamping:
Press the photo for a better & a closer look
This was the old bedroom we had, the ugly wall was hidden w/ lace curtains §;-)
GH started ripping off the plinths
OMG! it's not charming. I don't like dark stuffs
This house built in 1947 & old owner lived here for 25 yrs
Now, it looks like GH done a good job, don't you think?
Well, in progress?
Then, here was the wallpaper we both choose, for the backwall
And the headboard... TURQOUISE, so calm
I don't really feel at ease at first...
Or, maybe curtain misses? Rugs was changed too...
The standing cabinet was my first project "painted" whited

Well, as you can see, the photos are not the best. How I wish, I could share you for real. It's a kind of a cutie, though? Or at least, if you ask me §:-) The efforts GH had and me, who sewed the curtains, blinds and the pillow cases (not the white ones) was a satisfying outcome. Helping together sorting out the looks of our home, make our understanding and the bonding as man and wife get more stronger. We sat and talked about the plans. I plan, decide and he is the doer, uhumm... of course, I am the assistant. Keeping him accompanied.

To those who don't know me, GH is minimalist and I am more in to "que sera sera", what I like, I put it there, thing? And I am loving it. So, we both comprimes... 50-50 and we both gave a HI-5!

This is our on-going project the entrance, but that's another story!

HoPe YOU are in the best of everything dear bloggie friends.
See You All and God Bless in a Blessed W/end.

  3. Hej Chie
    Vilken skillnad, det kan man kalla renovering! Så fint det blev med sänggaveln och fondtapeten, ett helt nytt och vackert sovrum. Ska bli roligt och se vad ni hittar på men entren, perfekt att den är under tak. Där kan du hitta på mycket, bra men en händig man också. Ha nu en fortsatt skön helg.
    Kramar till dig vännen

  4. Kul att du tittade in hos mig! Tack för de snälla orden.
    Jag gillar verkligen ditt nya sovrum. Men det gamla var också fint på något sätt. Särskilt med spetsen så fint arrangerad på väggen.
    Lycka till med altanprojektet!

    Ser att du håller på att renovera. Sovrummet blev fantastikt snyggt! Gillar sänggaveln och tapeten. Så tjusigt och vackert.
    Jag själv lever i en renovering, men vi är snart färdiga. Visst är det skönt när allt börjat ta sin form!? :)

  11. It is hard to imagine whether an idea will work in a big project like this! You have done so well and the light colour scheme keeps the room looking as large as possible! A great effort!

  12. Hi you busy lady!
    Good work you've done...
    All the best for the end of the year! :)

  13. Good luck--and stamina--to you as the renovations continue!


    If I had a shadow the size of the sun,
    I’m not sure how fast I’d be able to run,
    Or if I could flee from its ravenous jaws,
    While keeping away from its razor-sharp claws!

  19. U always thought your home was very attractive before the updates. A place of style and family love...the new year is starting off quite well, Patti is through her cancer treatments, and her hair is growing back-yay! I was advised a long time ago, your home is where your children grow up. So no matter where life takes us, that is where home is. Happy New Year!
