ilove....this place

Is there a limit to what you should share with all your blogfriends? Yes i think there is. With this post i have almost reached that limit.I wanted to share some pictures of a "place" in my house i visit multiple times a day ( and yes i wash my hands afterwards:) It's a place that i can lock and be alone with my thoughts, without being disturbed. So i personally think that this "place" should not be neglected and styled properly.This is what i did to make every visit worthwile :0

I framed some pictures of the Kennedy family and a roadmap of the island  Martha's Vineyard. I spent a whole summer there when i was much younger,  and have very fond memories of it. It makes me smile everyday i see it. The thriftwood was given to me by my mother, she bought it in South Africa. Then of course to make my "place" smell good there is the Marseille soap....


I brought it back from our last trip to the Provence and besides the smell of the soap, ilove the pastel colors. There is also an old horseshoe ( huge size) wich i found at a thrift store in the South of Sweden and some advice to other visitors of my "place" to keep it clean and tidy. You see, my "place" is an everyday trip down  memory lane. What brings you down "memory lane" ?

Have a happy day.



  1. Oh Jaaa, I love this place too!!! Ga nog eens rustig kijken, zo veel moois te zien.
    Voor jou ook een leuke gezellige dinsdag! xx

  2. Ik lees nu je tekst, in jouw huis! Je hebt er een prachtig kleinste kamertje van gemaakt! Heel heel stijlvol. xx

  3. Wow--this is a very stylish "place"--haha! Mine's not nearly so fancy. My living room is my favorite place in the house, I think. It's really homey and there are tons of books and lots of color, and it just makes me feel so happy. Plus, there's usually a bottle of wine on the coffee table, which makes it even better. :)

  4. i wouldn't mind getting stuck in that "place" - it's very pretty! :)

    your place is wonderful, it really is.
    I would like to see more, every little corner of it.
    Thanks for sharing,

  6. What a beautiful house that must be (the pictures) Congrats on the horseshoe find, and visiting Provence!

  7. Love the framed pieces you've put together!! I would say that certain smells and photos take me down memory lane. I can immediately be 6 years old in my grandmother's kitchen with certain baked goods or Ukrainian dishes. One whiff and I sometimes cry remembering her!!


  8. Haha ~ love the little sign in your bathroom ~ too funny! One does spend a lot of time in the washroom ~ why not have a pretty one? Very lovely! :)

  24. Gorgeous...every time you share photos of your house, your blog's name makes so much sense to me! :)

  25. OMG...how pretty is your bathroom! im seriously in love with it!

    thanks for sharing these pics. have a lovely weekend dearie!


  26. Love, love it. I'm so glad you put this up. I'm also particular about 'the place' and yet find very little creative ideas on the net

  27. I love these pictures-
    May I be so bold as to ask: are you going to use your soaps? They are so pretty and they must lather pefectly- I would not be able to stop myself...

    I would use them with the thought that it's time to go back and get more as soon as they are used up!

    I love the drift wood- art made out of nature is my favorite.

    I would say that what 'takes me back in time' is some of the little figurines that I collected as a child that are now in my office/creative space.

    have a great weekend.

  28. It would make the room so nice that people would want to spend more time in there.

    Nice to display your fond memories somewhere you see them daily.

  29. So lovely. I love the stack of pastel soaps, and I wish I could smell it from here! haha..
