I finally brought out my jewelry supplies and manufactured me some homemade earry goodness. I love these babies. And I'm getting very excited about opening up my etsy shop again. Soon, very soon.
Here's the kitchen I share with five other girls. I am soooo happy with all my flatmates! We all got along instantly and we're having loads of fun together. I also love where our flat is. Five minutes from campus, five minutes from the famous Royal Mile, ten minutes from the Edinburgh Castle, and about eight minutes (OK. Exactly eight. I counted) from Princes Street, the huge shopping street in the New Town. There's also two bathrooms in the flat for six girls. So definitely manageable.
And now begins the tour of my room. My space. My haven. Also my mess. I think I'm finally happy with how it looks. I get a giddy feeling thinking about it so I guess that's a good sign right?
I bought these conventional-poster-alternatives at Paperchase, a shop I already blogged about here. These are actually sheets of wrapping paper, but the luxury kind that feels like cardstock and that, quite frankly, I always thought would be impossible to use as actual wrapping paper for all their stiffness. But they work quite fabulously as wall art I think. Very me.
A close-up of the one on the right and my personal favorite. Antique birdcages!
Here's the collage I made at the canvas collage workshop I did a few days ago. I made it to match the mask I decoupaged (visible below) the day before.
The extension of my vintage wall from home with a few additions. Check out that Scottish Highland Cow in the middle on the bottom. !!!
These two are from before I added all the touches like the vintage board and the collage over my bed. But you just had to see the poof in action.
Where all the blogging magic, err, I mean studying magic happens.
More tissue paper from Paperchase. I really should stay away from that store. Really.
So today is my first day of classes. I already had two lectures this morning and now I'm out for my third one. The scheduling really leaves something to be desired. 10 am, 11 am and ... 5:10 pm. Wait, you mean everything in life can't be perfect?? What??
