Little changes and findings...

I love changes, I mean small changes at home and in my life.
So here is my new desktop.
Geninne offers every month a new desktop and the December one is amazing. I have it on my screen and love looking at it although only today it started being rather cold and windy here and still no snow. That's good because that way we don't spend money on heating.



So if you want to have the desktop on your screen go here.
I recently bought a new shower curtain for my bathroom. I had to shorten it, too. It looks good and clean and matches more the colours of my tiles.
Also recently we did a thorough cleaning at school and here is something I saved. An old woven piece of cloth which no one knew who had left it at school and they said they did not need it. So I took it, gave it a good wash and....

 ...and tried to use it somehow...on the sofa...
 ...on the armchairalong with my old cross stitched cushion from my childhood.
 Finally I put it on the table for Christmas.
I also saved these old pieces.Woven pieces and...
 ...an old frame of Manto Mavrogenous, a hero of the 1821 Greek Revolution. It is only a piece of paper framed but these old frames used to be in every school in Greece for years. I hate to see them being thrown away now. So I decided to save this belle.

Yes, I am going crazy commenting on all your posts!
Sea glass must be wonderful. One could do so much with it! I don't think Indian shores have any of it...
Hmm... it is unfortunate that you don't have more readers. Your blog is lovely.

Love your creative style, friend. :) You'd have a blast treasure-hunting in the States at yard sales, garage sales, estate sales, flea markets... :) Maybe someday...
