Ever since Sanna Trotsmans magazine holder came out diy's of a similar sort have sprouted on the surface. Most recently I saw this one by Joyce which encouraged me to just do it. I went out and got the materials I needed; 1,5m of leather string and two wooden beads in the appropriate size. The how to part of this project is fairly self explanatory: simply thread the beads on to the string, tie each end with a knot, whip out a couple of your favorite magazines and voila! I had a spare nail already on my living room wall so that is where it now hangs. I love the look of the woods natural veins so I didn't bother painting the beads so that part is absolutely up to you.

For me, as soon as school starts that's when autumn is just about here. The nights are getting darker and longer, the temperature is dropping and whenever a new school year comes around I start digging for those chunky knits and comfortable sneakers again. Home vise, it becomes all about blankets and candle lights along with a nice clear out. This time around I am taking my kitchen cabinets through an overhaul - as I have already given my wardrobe a proper clear out. What do you do when transitioning into autumn/winter months?

It's one of those quiet days around the house. Planning next weeks dinner menu, preparing for the first day of school in the morning and cleaning the house up before a busy week and next weekends get-away. Coffee is mandatory. I did go out for a stroll down by the shore with my little one. We came home loaded with new rocks and shells, soaking wet shoes as well but that just keeps it even more fun.

Alki is a contemporary wooden furniture company whose journey began back in 1981 in the Basque Country with chairs as their main focus. Desk chairs, stools, lounge chairs, benches - they have it covered. One of which is the Triku Chair, design by the french Samuel Accoceberry, structured in solid oak or upholstered in eco-leather or fabric. Ahh - I am in awe with these soft, light round shapes.

Today is a one photo kind of day. After taking a long weekend out of town with my family to celebrate my grandfathers seventy-ninth birthday I am still in relax mode. This morning my son started his first day in his new kinder garden school and next Monday will be my first day of school. Whoof! This is how fast the summer flew by. Bring on the autumn!
