Lately I’ve notice a beautiful trend on my Pinterest and Instagram feed about Wool Weaving. A craftwork that must be dated hundreds of years back and remind me a lot about my South American and Portuguese heritage. However this new trend has been taken to another level by very talented artists in the recent months (like Maryanne Moodie), giving them a real twist, displaying them as wall decor and using gorgeous colour palettes and new textures.

There’s lots of simple DIY projects around the web for people like me that might want to give it a go but don’t want to buy the entire kit or wooden loom (just yet). I’m hoping to find some time this year to make one for my bedroom!  I love how they can transform a simple room adding lots of personality and colour.

These are some of my favourite finds:

Have you noticed this trend? is it something you would like to try? I think it would make a beautiful Xmas present!

Ah! it’s been so difficult to keep this beautiful series lately. We’ve been on holidays and the craziness of the new baby coming soon translates into a hectic life. To be honest I could write so many hilarious things Matias comes out with every day, this age is so adorable, they start to understand life around them in a very innocent way mixed with what they hear, read or watch (on the tv) and the combination is very funny.

Thinking on ways to bring Autumn to our home I made this very easy project and decided to share it. I like to use objects I have and give them a new purpose. I own a few wooden ribbon spools and have been using them to keep pencils in my desk, origami flowers in a shelve, or to display any other kind of treasure I found. I think they look very cute!

For this project you will need:

  • A wooden spool
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors/Knife
  • Ruler
  • A pretty paper of your choice
  • Glue
  • Autumn treasures (dry leaves or flowers, feathers, little branches, etc)

Cut the paper of your choice (I’m using some cute prints from this month’s Mollie Makes magazine) to fit the size of the spool and glue it around it. Tie a bow around using some pretty ribbon.

Add your beautiful autumn treasures inside the whole and done! Now place it on top of your fireplace, bedside table or in your favourite corner in the house.

Do you collect leaves or other natural treasures to decorate your home? What other ideas you have to bring seasons to your home? I would love to hear!

Last Friday we walked out of our hospital appointment with some big news, we will be welcoming a little sister for Matias early next year. I can’t describe the rush of emotions I’m experiencing at the moment, it was such a beautiful surprise for all of us, I feel blessed and very grateful for this gift.

This week was the first time in months that I needed a (light) coat to go out. That means only one thing, autumn has arrived for good. I find every season change refreshing, from the things we eat, the way we dress and the natural change of the surroundings . Not that I love facing the cold weather ahead, but the change always inspire me to do something different and to see things in a different way.
