My Greek Island Home Guesthouse, Lesvos

My Greek Island Home Guesthouse by Claire Lloyd in Lesvos, Greece. Photo by Carla Coulson

I know, I know, I just got back from vacation and I'm supposed to start focusing on work and stuff but then the internet is so full of temptations I really could not skip this one. Carla, a dearest photographer and blogger, shared her summer vacation experiences on the island of Lesvos and got me weak on the knees. It might just be the amazing guesthouse, My Greek Island Home Guesthouse, owned and designed by Claire Lloyd (perhaps you know her from her book) that she stayed in, the stunning, full of sensation photography of Carla and her charming description of her blissful days there, or simply that I want some more days off that I really can't take my eyes off of these photos ;)

ETSY MIX of the week

ETSY MIX of the week | My Paradissi

1 |  Black and white grid is all about everywhere these days, I don't see a reason why not use it to wrap presents in style too (SketchInc, $2.91)
2 | It's all in the details and this black bare bulb pendant is definitely not your average one (studioPGRB, $295)
3 | Really cool espresso shots that resemble the authentic ones you find in typical italian osterias (MONDOCUBO, $26.58)
4 | Pure white looks so elegant with the first crisp fall days. Love this delicate knitted silk dress (CodeTricot, $252.49)
5 | This seemingly fabric yet porcelain flower pocket is such pretty and unusual way to bring some greens indoors (OVOceramics, $24)
6 | Just love how simple and practical these handmade accent tables look (BPistorius, $518.27)

The wedding

So, here's what's been going on for the last couple of weeks around here ;) Our wedding took place in a beautiful traditional cretan village right outside Heraklion and everything went by smoothly and beautifully. It was more like a feast for friends and family than a formal event, which made us feel completely relaxed and able to enjoy each and every moment of it. I never thought I'd say that (I'm not much of a wedding/party girl) but I wish it lasted for a few more days. Just to absorb the sensation and grasp the idea. Ha, well I guess, I'd have the rest of my life for that! 
Anyway, right after our wedding we got away for a mini honeymoon to our favorite southern destination, Lentas, where we did nothing more that gaze at the sea horizon, swim and sleep. Total (and much needed) relaxation!
Now, first day back at home, with tons of unanswered emails (so sorry about that), to-dos and laundry. We're doing some home redecorations, as well, so everything looks like a mess over here, but we are still utterly excited to start over our new life together in an updated environment. Can't wait for all those things to follow!
