Quote of the day

Thanksgiving quote | My Paradissi

Quite truthfully, I'm not accustomed to the Thanksgiving day as we don't celebrate it here in Greece. But, the idea behind this holiday is really worth it, at least to make us pause for a moment and appreciate what we have and who we are. And, there are so many words to keep in mind apart from a simple thank you..

ETSY MIX of the week

ETSY MIX of the week Christmas Edition | My Paradissi

1 | Cutest baby knit set! Reminded me of miniature Christmas stockings, how sweet would they be as a holiday decor for a kids room as well? (Junikid, $29.30)
2 | Love the simple wooden cutout design of this deer garland, sweet yet totally chic and stylish even for a more contemporary decor (BotanikaStudio, $17+)
3 | For the love of garlands, this bold red felted one is too pretty to miss this Christmas too (CoutureByAyca, $10+)
4 | Nothing feels as cozy and homey as the smell of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, especially during holiday season, when the home has to be flooded with the warmest of essences. This pretty candle seems like a great way to do so (atlanticavenew, $20)
5 | This personalised Santa gift bag is sure to have a great impact on kids. Just imagine having one filled with presents under the tree. Oh my, I want one myself! (OldEnglishCo, $32.35)
6 | Love these teasing gift tags! Perfect for the youngsters but totally great for the older ones too ;) (PrintSmitten, $9.50)

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 ;)
