On Monday we're heading over to the summer cottage. My mum and dad left today and I gave some decoration material for them to take there so I can personalise our cottage a bit. The colour scheme will be blue and the vibe will be romantic, a bit beachy and really relaxed. I also made a sign for the cottage which'll be my number one favourite this week...
1. I ♥ my new sign
I got a sign last year that spent the whole summer under the sun and was beaten by rain so it completely faded. I was left with a blank sign that I thought would be perfect for a little sign for our little cottage. The name comes from the dude who the cottage was ordered from, Pikkmets. It means little forest, I guess. My Estonian isn't very good (that means non-existent) but the word is so similar to Finnish that I guessed that it might be little forest. And because the cottage is little I thought it was quite cute as well as really funny.
It was really easy to make with the alphabet stencil and a permanent marker. I just added some lace tape at the end to make it more girly. And voila! Ready to be hung up on the wall.
2. I ♥ rope necklaces
Last week I was obsessed with neon coloured necklaces and this week it's rope necklaces. Maybe I could combine both... Ha hah! At least this gorgeous style that I found would work for both categories. You'll find the instructions here. Seems like my first stop next week is the hardware store as this one I definitely need to try and make.

This Dofta set from Ikea is a box full of stones, sticks etc. and it smells really fresh. I guess it's like poutpourri except more stylish. I combined it with some shells and sea stars that I had and I think they look great together. Lovely and very inexpensive.
4. I ♥ Suvi sur le vif
I have found an absolutely amazing blog! It's not particularly new but it is new to me. Suvi sur le vif has the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen! No offense to my other favourite blogs. :) She blogs mainly about food, flowers and interiors. And I could look at those pictures forever. I definitely recommend taking a look.

I used to have denim sheets when I was a teenager but after seeing this picture on Pinterest I'd love to get some again. They had them in Hemtex at one point but I haven't seen them recently. They just look so summery! At least in this picture. Anyone know where I could get some?!
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND EVERYONE!!!
