Sideboard Sam

I had hard time figuring out what to put as title to this post. 
[ That is very common actually, I'd like to be more creative in that ] 
Well, these images are of my birthday present [ sideboard from JYSK - furniture store ] 
and of the person putting it together, which is my love / best friend / house mate = boyfriend 
living with me = common-law husband [ so funny to say that word "husband" when you're
not even married ] And somehow the word "sideboard" reminded me of The Simpsons 
character Sideshow Bob .. so the result of my "putting random things together" 
-kind of thinking with blog post titles can be seen above : D

Only the doors missing honey !

I've already decorated the table top a bit.
On the wall you can see photo of my little brother and silhouette image of my father as a boy.
Photo of Venice - taken by Amy - in vintage frames + paper lamp from Ikea.


- wooden box, containing some random trinkets
- green tea room scent [ JYSK ] and glass jar with metallic lid [ Sokos ]
- beauty book from the 40's [ thrift store ]
- small jewellery box [ gift from mum & sister ]
- our Easter egg surprises ! I got the pink velvet bunny 
& Samuli got a dinosaur. Triceratops, to be accurate
[ hehe my favourite dinosaur ! ]



I'm honestly happy and proud of this little assembly.
- glass jar candles [H&M] from my friend 
- grey lotus candle light holders [ JYSK ]
- small tablecloth is vintage, from my mum.

She has given me also other small lace and linen tablecloths,
and I've always wanted to decorate the house with them a bit. 
Now I finally have a nice surface to place those with candles 
and other items. Maybe even put some seasonal decorations
- which I didn't do this Easter but there's always another party
just around the corner. Like Labour Day; some serpentine
 and our white + black visor graduation caps perhaps.
Or Midsummer Eve; vase full of wild flowers and
branches of birch.. Just brainstorming here !

All places around the house doesn't need to be there for some purpose, 
they can exist purely for the show.


Suomennos:
Huima ajatuksenjuoksuni ja satunnaisten asioiden yhdisteleminen 
sai aikaan tälla kertaa tällaisen otsikon; englanninkielinen nimi senkille 
toi mieleen Simpsoneiden Sideshow Bobin ja huonekalua kokoaa 
poikakaverini Samuli .. Hahha :) Enää puuttuu ovet ! Ja olen jo vähän 
sisustellutkin tasoa. Äidiltä saamani liina ja korurasia, ystävältä H&M:n kynttilät,
JYSKistä lootus kynttiläkipot ja huonetuoksu, kirpparilöytö Kauneuden Kirja,
lasikippo metallikannella Sokokselta, ja pääsiäismunayllätykset - minun pinkki 
samettinen pupu ja Samulin dinosaurus [triceratops, joka on mun lemppari dino :D ]

Nyt kotoa löytyy vihdoin jokin kiva paikka, johon tehdä tällaisia pikku asetelmia
äidiltä saamieni pitsi- ja pellavaliinoilla, kynttilöillä ja muilla tavaroilla. 
Ja jopa koristella sesongin / juhlapyhän mukaan, vaikka nyt pääsiäisenä en
koristellutkaan niin aina on jokin juhla kulman takana.. Kuten vaikka vappu
ylioppilaslakkeineen ja serpentiineineen, tai juhannuksen koivunoksat ja luonnon kukat.

Kaiken kotona ei tarvitse olla käyttöä varten, jokin paikka voi olla 
ihan vain esittelyä/katsomista varten. Olipas hankala suomentaa oma ajatus hihi. :D

  9. Kivan näköinen senkki ja kauniin asetelman olet tehnyt sen päälle. :) Odotan innolla huonekalukauppoihin pääsyä, kun uuteen asuntoon tarvitaan mm. uudet yöpöydät ja pari laatikostoa. Kunhan nyt tosin saisi ensin tämän muuton alta pois.
