Highly particular

How do you entertain uninvited friends?



Do you keep heirlooms?

Would you stick children’s drawings on the walls?
Do you like crafts?

Are you keen on colors?

Do you find vintage touches charming?
Do you match old with new?

Would you feel like an artist looking at the empty surfaces of your house?

Are you pleasantly surprised by unexpected items?

Do you give importance to details ?

If so, you‘re going to love this country house and its air!

The house you are visiting isn’t mine but for the regular readers
 this is the house to which the garden shown in a previous post belongs.
This is a particularly beautiful and inspiring house which bears
the signature of the owners.The woman is a lawyer,has two kids
and a husband who is often absent on business.
Nevertheless, she is able to transform this house within a few 
hours, to create crafts, to cook, to dig and keep smiling!
Where does she get her energy?

I think love is the moving force that helps us go forward. Isn't it ?

I know that for most of you Easter has passed.
For the Orthodox Church is on 5 May.
Thank you once again for your very sweet, generous
and clever (!) comments you leave on my blog.
I really enjoy them a lot !
I wish you sunshine wherever you are !


  1. What a lovely post !!......happy new from me....

  2. Wat een leuke post en wat komt er veel voorbij. Eerlijk gezegd vind ik het voor een woonhuis wel erg druk, aan de andere kant zie je veel mooie dingen voorbij komen. Ik heb in mijn huis wel erfstukjes van mijn oma en daar ben ik erg blij mee.
    Nog een mooie dag!

    Lieve groet,

  3. I am not quite as free a spirit when it comes to decorating my house as your friend is. I love that her house reflects her and her family but most of all you can really feel the love :o)

  4. Che meravigliose immagini dove si legge tutto il tuo amore per i dettagli!

  5. Your friends' house looks as delightful as her garden! I hope you have a wonderful time when you visit Scotland later in the year, we went last summer and loved it.

  24. Hello, Olympia

    I was just thinking about how I want to do something creative today. Your friend's home has such a happy spirit and oozes with creativity. I'm just starting to explore my own desire to make things.


  25. Wow Olympia, that looks FANTASTIC ! You know - I LOVE Color... It´s interesting to learn that Easter for you is at 05 May - I haven´t known yet. So you don´t have to look like we are the Easter eggs in the snow *gg* ! Thank for your lovely impressions and have a great week !!!
    Kind regards,

  26. It is quite evident that this beautiful country house is filled with warmth, personality and love. Colours brighten, textures animate, and shapes interest the eye, insisting that it roam around the rooms, observing a collection of whimsical collages, charming vignettes and lots of soul.
