W.C. like Water Closet

I've always found the abbreviation W.C. a bit funny. I mean, a water closet is not something I usually have in mind when visiting a small toilet. There is water involved, for sure, but, by definition, a closet is something more of an organizing space with certain claustrophobic references. On the other hand, although these photos are really close to the literal definition of the w.c., they are too darn cute, don't you think? And, no wonder they have many similarities as they are both designs of amazing stylist Marie Olsson Nylander. The b&w design adds tons of character and sophistication and I really love the small details like the wire basket for the toilet paper, the enamel sink and the photo gallery above the toilet. No more having fun of water closets again, for sure ;)

24 ways to decorate with rosemary this holiday

24 ways to decorate with rosemary this holiday | My Paradissi

Rosemary, with its resemblance to the evergreen foliage and its probable presence in most gardens and balconies, is a great alternative to the usual holiday greens. Although many of us usually limit its use to our culinary activities, this little herb is way to precious when it comes to Christmas decorating. And, by precious, I'm not even close to suggest that it is expensive or of high maintenance but, quite on the contrary, it proves to be a dear ally to all our holiday festivities and crafts. Very easy to find and manipulate, rosemary can turn into a gorgeous wreath, play a central role on the holiday tablescape, beautify our gift wrapping and home decorations and even make adorable mini Christmas tree alternatives. As a matter of fact, I've gathered a whole lot of 24 ideas on how you can use rosemary for your holiday decorations this Christmas. Hope they get you inspired for some happy weekend crafting :)
