on the shelf

The shelf went on the wall a while ago, but the shelves themselves are still untreated. They’re waiting for me to fix the sander situation… Namely, to beg, borrow or steal one (no worries, I’m not really gonna steal it!) so I could start waiting for the motivation to begin sanding! 🙂

While the shelves wait to be treated with sandpaper and wax, I’ve been playing with stuff to put on them… and trying to take better-looking photos of the results. So far, so good, but there’s still a long way to go for getting them to look more pro!

Anyway, this green theme is a favorite so far, and I’m pretty happy with the photos too! 🙂

happy hunting


I went thrifting yesterday and lookie what I found! I couldn’t be happier! 😀

The candlesticks are Iittala Festivo and I already had 3 of them in different sizes. The blue/grey vase is a candlestick, if you turn it over… that’s “Mesimarja” by Tamara Aladin at Riihimäen Lasi. I love how the hue changes depending on the light.


This is a salt/pepper shaker by the Russian Lomonosov. And for once I also found a pile of clothes I liked! 🙂


And a free chair from the curb!  It’s a bit grubby but I’m sure it’ll clean up nice. This week’s bounty was plentiful indeed! 🙂
