Long time, no see, dear friends. Life has taken over and absolutely been insane and chaotic lately. I have been trying to accomplish everything I can before my time in glorious Europe is up. My home has felt like insanity as well. I have decided to sell EVERYTHING I don't simply LOVE and all the things I brought from The States, so that I could do more traveling and stock up on some European antiques before I head back to America in less than a year. As of late, my home changes daily, and as soon as I get it how I like it, I find a piece I like better and sell other items to pay for it! I have been collecting decor and antiques since I was a wee little one, and to be honest, it feels good to get rid of all the things (that don't have sentimental value) that I have been lugging around for years.
I had the striped hall like this for about a month before selling my childhood dresser, but wanted to share with you how I had it set up! I got the painting at a thrift shop and it reminds me of the wine region along the Mosel. When you drive on the Autobahn you see dozens of little villages and steeples like the one in the painting. It will be a beautiful memory for us and a piece of my home here in Germany, all in a vintage painting.
Even though my style is a blend of antiques and contemporary pieces, I am collecting all the antiques I can while I am here. It would be absolutely ludicrous not to, since I can purchase them at a fraction of the cost as in The States.
I left my time-zone clock wall and eccentric art the same. To read about the meaning of our time-zone clock wall, click here.
I have also done some rearranging in my kitchen, living room, dining room and bedroom to add beautiful pieces like this hand painted and burned clock from the French countryside.
What would you do with your last little bit of time in a foreign country??? Would you travel and stock up too?
