This time I’m going for fairy tale boho extravagance.
Feminine and romantic, soft textures with plenty of reusing and reinventing.
I’ve taken the necessary measurements and mapped out a plan.
The hanging sides are all good, now I just need to add the top with ties and trims.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
