making the move

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

The move finally took place and it left me happier than I had expected. Finally the things that we worked on for the last month or so were there to occur in real life. I feel so bad for leaving you with no news nor new photographs for so long! :) I have been secretly shooting a new roll of film, stocking myself up for the weeks to come, and organising my new space with items, fresh flowers and positive energy and love and motivation to keep moving forward.

I also started craving for a new camera, not sure whether I will give in or not... I am more than falling for tulips this year. They are still somehow weak, as the cold makes them shrink and it takes few hours in my room for them to open up and show their beauty. I love having fresh flowers on my desk. Desk big enough to stock everything I need. Few things still need to be taken care of, and let me assure you, there will be loads of picture taking in the process. It's the time guys! New making it cosy posts are coming. 

Having to find myself in that new room, I tried to do it by decorating it all myself. One of my favourite new items would be those tree bookends, that hold my books steady and in a beautiful way. They were manufactured in Ukraine by Design Atelier ARTICLE, whom I might be helping with their new online store (so so exciting!). They have dozens of choices when it comes to bookends, but I felt like something delicate like those trees would be the best pick for my new white and blue room. This fox model was the close second choice though.

Then I stumbled upon Dror from Israel, who manufactures handmade pillow covers under the name of Studio Bornstein. It's just one of the patterns available, and they also come in three different sizes, so there is so much to pick from! :) You will have a better look at them in the following posts, because I just cannot stop photographing my new room! Dror too has an Etsy store, where you can look up her pillows but also other items like tablecloths or baby blankets. All made with love and of amazing quality! It's a yes for me.

I must say it was the very first time using the flash that I got with my Canon and I looove the opportunities it gives me! Time to stock myself with some AA and go shooting! As you can see below, my new flatmate's bf is keen on analogue photography himself and it was so nice to be able to talk all about our favourite cameras and films once we sat down and relaxed after moving my stuff from my old apartment.
