Handmade makes a cozy home
As number one on my list for a cozy warm home is handmade goods. Number two has to be old worn furniture. And number three is the sign of life. Lets show the world a little bit of mess. Lets show the visitor that someone really LIVES here.There is nothing more boring than entering a spotless and perfectly arranged home... in my opinion.
I have wanted to make myself a cozy and warm home for... 25 years now. I still haven't gotten to the task. I guess I am a bit of a rootless person, always hesitating to take out the hammer and make a hole in a wall. That is the main reason why my collected hooks, shelves, frames and other interior decorating goods are stored in the attic in boxes and I don't really now where to start. Any advice on how to tackle this mission is welcome. I sure need advice...
Since moving away from home I have moved so many times... From one continent to another, one apartment to another house... Never really settled down with the thought of this being my home. But now... We have been in this house for almost 5 years now. It is time to feel at home.
This crochet pillow adds that little extra to my Scandinavian homespun/country/bohemian chic style. It came out of some "I-don't-have-a-clue-what-I-am-making" crocheting a couple of weeks ago, and turned out to become a real little sugar pie. I thought of putting it in my shop, therefor the label, but I changed my mind. I love it to much. It fits perfect in my home and it is bringing me one step closer to the really cozy feel that I want around here.
Instead I think I will make more pillows like this to put in my shop. Everyone needs something handmade to feel loved and comfortable. It doesn't matter what style you are - a crochet pillow fits in everywhere. Don't you think?
