I have (said almost with a sense of complete surprise) come to the decision I am actually a touch on the Bohemian side (there I said it).
Why it is a surprise baffles me, you just have to look around my home to see the not so subtle decor hints.... How I missed this major clue mystifies me too.
The amount of indoor plants that jostle for space.
The fact I have cats who
The suzani type floor throw I bought from a junk shop 15 years ago when we barely had two pennies to rub together, the lights and stars and feathers and stones
The lit candles and wafting incense.
Oh and the dangly earrings, the bangles and long skirts that fill my wardrobe.
Now I am obviously not a true bohèmien in the correct sense of the word - but I do seem to have great potential should I apply for the position full time!
I have recently hankered for a Scandi-style and as hard as I tried, I only seemed to have little 'spot-lights' of minimalist Nordic-cool surrounded by wild shades of terracotta, books and plants. Then, as I was searching for something** on the 'net a couple of nights ago and came across an image courtesy of Pinterest (http://bit.ly/1P0SNfl)
Eldest, who was sitting next to me, lent over and said 'that looks like our house'.
He was correct.
Except it doesn't have the pile of cats sleeping in front of the woodburner - but that is a minor detail!
So I am trying now to embrace something I have always been - apart from being odd, but then I knew that. I think I am rather enjoying my 'new' personna - long live Bohemia!
**What I was looking for (and this clue will seal it for you) was 'How to make a dreamcatcher' Yup - see what I mean?
Any hoo, in my new guise I have made my dreamcatcher and will post it tomorrow - *shakes head at the absurdity of it all - so a leopard can change its spots or rather, it can learn to love and live in its spots with pride :)
