Yesterday night I managed to create the red wine with spices I have told you about. Amazing drink…I was enjoying a glass of it, sitting by the fireplace and just admiring the lights of the Christmas tree. And then I saw it….

The small cute brown fawn on my tree was smiling at me! No…it was not the wine…Ι haven’t even tasted it by that time. I closed my eyes and opened them again…the fawn was still smiling at me! “Hello” he told me (it was a boy as you guess!), “Do you love white Christmas? Come and join me in a small trip… to Winter Wonderland!”. Ok..I do not know what would be your reaction, but I start laughing! “Why do you laugh? Winter Wonderland exists…and you, even if you are not a kid, will feel like being a child again! No worries, no problems, no tiers…just laughs and good fun and cute creatures and candies and… you never know… you might meet also Santa Claus!”. I stopped laughing and I make my mind… I was missing feeling like a child again, so I followed him… and it was amazing! In a magical place where Christmas are white and fairytale and full of joy!!! Dimitra had done a really great job!!!!!

If I had to use 3 words to describe myself and what I make they would be: creation embraces contrast. I am full of contrasting qualities; harsh, soft, sentimental, logical and my creations are exactly the same. A mix n match of modern with old, bold with neutral, simple with intricate, that in the end look balanced & pretty. At least in my eyes…
My home could be no different from myself. Chinese antique style furniture meets sleek couch, meets vintage looking tray with modern accents, all in a beautiful mess, like a nuthouse -thus the “Asylum” part- until they all find their place and look beautiful.
Living in a rental also means that you have to face quirks and issues a place have grown into, so, yeah, Asylum is definitely the word to describe our house! As for the “Decor” that’s easy: I am addicted to decorating 😉 The blog “Decor Asylum” predates my Etsy shop and I couldn’t find a more appropriate name for a shop that sells decorative items with mix n match aesthetics.
I love handmade because, in all honesty, I am too proud and a bit selfish to settle with copy paste(s). Handmade items are by definition unique and cannot be reproduced. Even the slightest movement when making something by hand gives it a totally new character and that is what makes it so special. You are sure that whatever you are using/wearing/looking at is totally unique and no other person has the exact same thing!
