My new chest of drawers...

Here it is!

Last week I saw this wonderful chest of drawers in a antique furniture store I often visit. I never seen a chest like this before. It looked so pretty and was calling "Nadine, please, do take me home.."

Not sure where it would look good and if it would fit, I decided not buying the chest and first find a perfect spot. 
At home, I kinda regret, I didn't took the chest home..

But I found the perfect spot in my living room, next to the television. So, a few days later, I returned to the store, hoping the chest would still be there.. Thankfully, it wasn't taken by someone else..

I'm so happy, I can call it mine now..!

Have a great Sunday!

Table runner in French style

A while ago I bought this table runner and matching placemats.
I just love the white cotton combined with the lace on the sides.

I also discovered the site of the Graphics Fairy and was looking forward to use one of her gorgeous French graphics. At Highschool I wasn't good in French, but I always loved the sound of the language, the writing, Paris, Chanel, the "old time" feeling I get...

The table runner was perfect for this transfering job.
So I bought transfer sheets and searched for a pretty, french graphic to decorate the runner.
First, I printed the graphic in reverse, then I cut it out and at last, I ironed it on the runner. Done :)

This is the result and I'm very pleased with it.

After the runner, I also decorated a placemat (one of the..).

Sundays ~3~

Just wanted to show you a picture of my living room.
This morning I figured I haven't done that yet..

As I moved in, the wall on the right was completely black, the floor was the same and the walls were already white.

The walls are painted in "bloesemwit" (blossom white). It's such a lovely, warm white. I love chandeliers, so there had to be one in my living room. In a Dutch magazine I saw a women who had placed shelves above the couch, I thought that was a great idea to show small things, that I want to see every day.
The seats are the famous Ikea seats. Love them.. 

My living room is almost finished (of course there's always some decorating to do or change). One wall (not shown) is empty and I would like to hang some pictures frames om that wall.

Soon I will take more pictures of the room, also showing the other walls.

Have a great Sunday!!

Birthday High Tea

Last Thursday (the 8th of March) another year was over..
I turned 27.

This time I wanted something to do else than a party in the evening. Ever since I moved in, I wanted to do a High Tea. This was the perfect occasion and I loved planning, baking and decorating the table! I also had help from my mom, who made the wraps and sandwiches with me.

My dearest girl friends were invited and we had so much fun..

It was a perfect birthday party! Here are some pictures of the "sweet high tea table".

Enjoy your weekend!!

The inspiration for my birthday cake.


Last, but not least. My girls and I <3
