lazy Sunday

Lately I've been feeling pretty uninspired by my closet. I don't know what it is - but getting dressed has been impossible and I feel like my outfits have consisted of the same few shirts/skirts/dresses rotated on a weekly basis. I'm watching three amazing blouses on ebay right now, they end tonight so - fingers crossed!!

So, since I have no outfit posts, or new and exciting happenings to share here's the little bits of clutter and junk I've been happy to look at every day. I'd show more but there's too much stuff laying around and it'd probably make you feel crazy at the sight of it!

I've been spending most of my free time by this window lately. The two pillowcases are from my gram's attic and the three quilts were found in the same room. I'm determined to find all my linen's from my gram's house and I'm sure that it won't be that difficult to do.



This is a little snippet of my bottle collection and only a small, small portion of my glass insulators. The big bottle with the stopper is my newest addition which was found in my gram's china closet.



Actually, I take back what I said about having a lack of clothing inspiration, it's just cold weather clothing that's gotten me down. Friday night I was taking a little nap and I woke up to Alice throwing this little house dress on my head. I think this is the best way to wake up from a nap and I CAN'T wait to wear this dress all by itself come warm days. I love antique malls in New Hampshire, and I love Alice.



This is one of the walls of our extra room which acts as my closet/work room .. it's totally unorganized but I've been working on the walls as a means to clear up clutter. I just put the clutter on the walls instead of finding a normal spot for it! I recently purchased that hat at Artifaktori and I can't wait until beach weather to wear it with red lips and big sunglasses. The top of my windowsill is also acting as a temporary home for my newly acquired wooden thread spool collection - also found in my gram's attic.



We found this set of wooden drawers at our favorite flea market. It used to hold little tools, now it holds all my shipping needs. And it's a nice place for my glass bottles and other silly junk.



My room, and all sorts of dresses piled atop each other.



I know I've already posted a photo of these suitcases but I don't think I've ever shown off the box in the middle. I found that when Sarah came to visit. It was purchased at the same flea market we got the drawers at and it's one of my favorite things! It's an old turn of the century tea box!



And then there's me, amidst more clutter and borrowing a camera from a friend since I dropped mine and now it DOESN'T work anymore. Luckily I have some very kind friends who'll let me borrow theirs for the time being - but, every penny I make at Mass Market is going to go to the New Camera fund.

Oh! These pictures are wonderful- that cozy nook with grandmother's linens and the lovely window look like the perfect place to while away a Sunday afternoon..
I have also been having a devil of a time getting dressed for the cold weather- I'm just no good at layering! It's hard not to feel lumpen- I miss being able to toss on a summer sundress and go!
Love your journal- I'm Angeliska, pleased to make your acquaintance!

what is your 'favorite flea market' where you got the drawers? Where is it located/what's the address :)

You have such beautiful items scattered across your house, really adorable. And I'm sure the inspiration will come to you soon, I'm going through that same kind of phase aswell at the moment.

i love your collection of glass bottles

I was just wondering to myself about where you'd gotten off to! Cold weather is very uninspiring! Even if you come up with something good, you have to cover it all up anyway, so what's the point? Your photos are so lovely! I hope you make a ton of money so you can get a really nice camera!

You live in a fairytale, I swear!

I can't imagine looking in your closet and feeling uninspired. Why is it that everyone else's closet always seem better than our own. Let's swap closets! I love your little collection of wooden spools. Your Gram's spools are mingling with my grandmother's spools in a jar by my sewing table. Thanks again!

Truly amazing! That dress looks so lovely, I can't wait to see you wearing it! I love the first picture, it looks so comfortable and warm :)

I love your suitcases! And everything, really. :)

Clothing inspiration tends to come in cycles, doesn't it? Hopefully one of those Ebay blouses will find its way to your wardrobe and revitalise everything in it.

jane said...

oh i love these pictures!
my closet isn't inspiring me very much, but I think that could be because it's summer (hah lets swap seasons),in winter it is much more fun layering everything for me ;)

Penny said...

your room is so magical and has so much character. i bet it is the coziest place in the whole world!

Betty Lou said...

i love your home! and those suitcases, and bottles ;D

Jessica said...

so beautiful and inspiring! i've been trying to dream up ways to decorate my room and apartment, but it just seems like i fill up any available space so quickly with un-pretty but necessary things. i really love how the littlest details (like the lace in the window or the colors of the bottles) make your space so beautiful.

kimvee said...

Your room looks so cute. I love the vintage suit cases that you have as well as the colorful bottles displayed. The pillow cases are pretty, i love lazy sundays, your bed looks so comfy to just lounge around on a lazy sunday hehe*

Shannon (A beautiful Dream) said...

What a gorgeous room you have and it suits you down to a t!

I love all your glassware, but I bet it's annoying to clean!

Rhiannon said...

I've been feeling the same way lately--I think it could just be the weather. Hope you start feeling better . . .

Btw, your room is about the most gorgeous one I've seen!!

Regan said...

wow! tea box! so lovely.

Missa said...

I'm a huge fan of glass bottles on window sills and lace curtains, so that second picture is absolute perfection in my book :)

It does appear that you live in a vintage wonderland. Good luck with the new camera fund!

Enfievre said...
