I have this sort of urge to redecorate my home in some way. Where does this thought come from? Partly from my flickr-friend Moa Maria. Her pictures and blog make me wanna do stuff. There are also other sorces of inspiration on flickr and other places.
I’ve been wanting to visit this secondhand store not far away from where I live, after I saw an article about it in the newspaper. Up to now, I’ve never had the chance to do it. I forget. And I’ve had no time. I believe it’s only on saturdays I have time to go there, but in December I haven’t had one avaliable saturday as I can remember. The coming saturday, I won’t even be in Oslo, so I can’t go then. Maybe the first saturday in 09? I might be busy then when I think about it… Hmm.
I’m not sure what I expect to find in this second hand store, but I hope to find a few gems I can buy. What those gems should / could be, I have no idea of! I just have an imagination / dream to find something. And something can be anything.
This decorating urge… I don’t know exactly what I want to do. Not what I can do either. My apartment is quite small, with a hall, tiny kitchen, even smaller bathroom, large bedroom and ok sized livingroom. I don’t have any particular vision of what I want to do. All I know is that I want to do something. And as I said, something can be anything.
This is not very concrete. It’s all very blury actually. It’s all just a thought in my head. A balloon of creativity just waiting to burst. I just need to blow a little more creativity or thoughts into this balloon… and then – BANG!
One thing I want to do is to change the pictures hanging in my livingroom. I think I’ve written about that before. But that’s not something that is easy. Because I can’t make up my mind about what kind of pictures to hang up there. I did think about square photos, since I utterly adore the square format.
I also want new curtains in my livingroom. I’m a bit tired of the red ones I got now. I think I want something brown-ish. All I know is that they have to match my red sofa. Maybe I could find some new curtains on sale? That would be great. Because I know that January and February isn’t the best months money-wise. There is always so many bills to pay.
While we’re on the decorating-thought. I read a post from Moa on her blog where she had sowed herself a cloth. That made me really wanna sow too. But I need a sowing machine to do that – something I don’t have. So that is at the top of my list of what I want. That and a photo printer. To have a sowing machine would be so fun! I could make my own pillows for instance. I looked at some sowing machines online a while ago and I saw some that cost between 2500 and 3500 NOK. They were the cheepest. You could get super fancy ones that cost A LOT more. But I don’t need that. I want a simple one, but not too simple of course. I have to investigate more about this.
Well, I’m off to have breakfast now. Just need to wake up the others in the house. The cats have been awake for a long time, so no need to wake them up. I’m pretty sure they were awake long before me.
Until later… xoxo
