a little peek inside my room

A lot has changed since the last time I took pictures of my room as you can see HERE. So I decided to do a mini tour with the help of my friend Bryan. :)
 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
The jewelry box was a birthday gift from my lovely friend Ashley
 and the lucky little elephant was given to me by my mom.






            The Bow necklaces were handmade by me and the Russian nesting dolls
were also a gift from my mom.


I LOVE owls, i'm always on the hunt for them at thrift stores. 
I have about 5 of them around my room  haha!
My beloved 100 year old singer sewing machine. 
When it's working it's magic it's louder than thunder but it works like a charm!

This record player was a gift to my dad a couple of years ago and later I found it in the basement! He said he didn't like the sound quality in which I totally disagree, so I decided to put it in my room and give it some much needed love.  Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorites albums!
 What i'm wearing:
Ralph lauren pullover
thrifted skirt
handmade necklace by me
 boots are from Shoegasm NYC

My room is the upper part of my parents house and it's a converted attic. I love all the space I have and when i'm in the creating mood, it sure comes in handy.
I get most of my room decor at thrift stores, yard sales, antique shops and occasionally IKEA. I prefer decorating with old things because I like seeing the potential that these items may have and give them a new home and lots-a love! 
Well I hope you guys enjoyed this little tour and thank you for stopping by!

  7. Okay, first of all, adorable outfit! Love how it's so simple, but also so chic and cute. Love the striped top and booties the most. Second, what a wonderful room! The idea of christmas lights in the closet is really cute, I might have to put up some in mine now :)
    I wish my room had windows, natural light is so lovely!
