Paper garlands

We’ve made new garlands to decorate our living room. They were made out of the same paper bought at Tchibo: the big chain paper garland is made of 21×4 cm strips and the smaller ones of 10,5×2 strips (half the size of the first). The strips were simply taped in order to create a chain element, ensuring that the colours of the papers next to each other are not that similar. The last ones that we hang on the windows are made of 2 cm x variable length strips which were sewn not always along the center for a nicer mouvement effect.

Art gallery

DSC02632We like showing Gabriel we value his art creations. For this reason we hang his paintings (and lately drawings) on our living room wall. Seeing them everyday also reminds us of the different moments when they were created: in the kindergarten, with uncle Joao, the grand-parents, when grand-mother visited… We regularly exchange or add new art work.
