Happy Monday everyone! Today is more of a business day to our vacation. We are apartment/neighborhood hunting today and trying to decide where we want to live when we move out here. I think we've narrowed it down to Uptown Mpls, Northeast Mpls, or St.Paul. Hopefully we can get a good idea so that when it comes closer to moving we don't have to take a whole weekend to sign for an apartment.
Agnes from Marysza is here to blogsit today. As bloggers, we can be quite nosy. It's totally normal! Whether it's a sneak peek of a project you're working on, a what's-in-my-bag post, or a peek into your home, we are always wanting to know more! Agnes has kindly decided to show us a little about her life and maybe inspire some interior design ideas along the way!
Hello! My name is Agnes, but in our enormous blog word I'm known as Marysza :) from this blog or this shop.
When Allison asked me if I wanted to guest post I was really in a deep shock! I was just a reader of her blog so I didn't think she would really notice me :) But I'm very thankful for this gesture!
Of course, I had no idea what could I write about.. Eventually I thought I could show you my room.. It's nothing special really, most things are handmade or really really cheap hehe :) The worst thing about my room is that it has to be a craft room, a bedroom, a study and a living room in the same time. It is hard if your room has only 3x4 metres.
I would like to show you few photos :)
I have 'separated' my room by two shelfs..
When you come in my room, first thing you see is my enourmous, soft chair with lots of pillows. It is a perfect place for reading books or studying, especially during winter when I drink my hot Yerba Mate on this little table next to the chair.. :)
I love pictures, photos, paintings etc. so as you will see they are on every wall in my room :) Below you can see some photos, my painting, marathon1981 painting and two embroidery hoops with colorful fabrics :)
On this wall you can see four A4 paintings on canvas which I made about 4-2 years ago.. My photo selfportrait and one of my favourite painter Egon Schiele's 'Seated woman with bent knee'
On the top of one of the shelfs there is a big canvas inspiration board. I destroyed my old painting 70x100cm and nailed a fabric to the frame :) An easy way of making a cute board to your room! :)
On the right, there is a painting of an unknown author.. I found it in the garbage of my art school when I was cleaning the class after my classes.. Isn't it beautiful? I can't believe someone just threw it out!
Oh, and here one of my most favourite things in the room (except my sewing machine of course!). Two typewriters! I love their colours and the way you write on them.. it is so loud but so pleasant and fun!
And the wall which I finished remaking today.. It consists of a little gallery of my old photos, two inspiration boards, chest of drawers with cosmetics and jewellery on top and my big desk with a little mess :)
This little gallery is a very simple and interesting way to fill a blank space on your wall. Just hammer two pegs, find a quite still wire and paint your wooden clips in different colours.. isn't it like super easy?
Ohhh and of course! There is a special place under my desk, for a wicker suitcase.. which is a space only for my handmade notebooks..
Thank you for a chance to show myself (eeek.. my room exactly!) here :) I hope you will like this little post and come visit my blog to see some of my sewing, scrapbooking, photography, calligraphy and drawing :)
Have super nice holidays! And don't forget to post about them! :)
Hugs for all blogaholics!
