Corner View: Unveiling, Showing your True Self

Tonight, for you ladies and gentlement, you're going to learn more about my true self. Here we go...I am a very positive person. I really try to see (as much as possible) the good side of things, I learn from my everyday little drama, trying to understand life's lessons. No, it is not always an easy thing, but it's my motto.
Sometimes I feel like I'm still 5 years old, I see little things and I'm almost speechless about them. I love to see things as if it was the first time I see them; we get used to our surroundings and I think it's a shame. Admire life's beauty, you'll see how good it feels.
I like so many various things, almost opposites, I guess you could say I'm eclectic. I love city life and country life. I love techny stuff and vintage stuff. I love travelling, discovering the world and stay at home to relax. I love the ocean and fields. I love classical and contemporary music. I love old movies and recent ones. I love, I love, I love!

Corner View: Places of Reflection

This week's Corner View: "Places of worship.. or places of reflection. A place you can go and just be." There are three spots at home where I like to be: my sofa (right there, in the corner),
my lounging chair on the patio
and my bed.
I get most of my (brilliant!) ideas in my bed either before falling asleep or in the morning, when I wake up. I like to take my time before getting out of bed. And I think about stuff. All kinds of stuff.

I enjoy sitting on the sofa, because it's kind of where people gather, not only to watch TV or movies but also to eat (Yeah, we eat in the living room. Often) and talk. We also bring the laptops over. You may think we are far from meditation and reflection in those cases, well we're not. I guess we're multitaskers ;-)

Finally, the patio. When the weather is nice, I like to go there to relax, read, enjoy the quietness (when the neighbours are quiet themselves), listen to the birds singing and think.
I don't really meditate, but I think a lot... A LOT!

Les Déglingos

Discovered a whole new menagerie at FAO Schwarz :
les Déglingos!Bigbos, the wolfe
So charming those softies made of simple yet original fabrics. There was the size "Pick me, pick me and keep me in your arms" Ronronos, the cat

and the other size "I'm as tall as you, 4-year-old".Nonos, the dog

Due to an unbelievable control of my finances (I'm very proud of myself), I didn't bring them all at home, but it was tough, let me tell you!
