When we first moved in, we had wanted a wall where we could put up the pictures that we have taken. A mini gallery of sorts, if you like. Our style is quite Scandinavian – lots of sunlight, white walls, simple pieces and bold colour accents. No fancy schmancy feature walls with mirrors and panels for us, we wanted to make sure that the house is easy to maintain and has clean lines.
Almost six months after moving in, the photo wall has finally been created:
These are mostly my pictures because Mr Thick hasn’t been able to curate his photos (coughprocrastinationcough). He’s the better photographer so there will be more of his pictures than mine, eventually.
The other day, I popped back to my old home in Sengkang to see my GP. While waiting for the clinic to open after lunch, I was surprised to see that Daiso had opened an outlet at the mall across from my mom’s place. Darn, why couldn’t it have opened while I was still living there?
Being the avid shopaholic, I of course picked up a basketful of things for the house. A toy for Coco, two small jars of cinnamon and nutmeg, a heart-shaped silicon mould for cooking eggs (husband wanted it) and some cute and gorgeous decorations for the balcony.
Aren’t they just cute? I love it when I come across things unexpectedly and they just happen to be the perfect fit. I have a thing for chalkboards which husband cannot understand. But it’s just like how I adore vintage cameras and old school Olivetti typewriters. I still harbour dreams of having a display shelf full of such goodies, probably in our next home.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a kitten to catch. She’s biting off the leaves of my plants!
