I’m not able to walk on heels at the moment but that doesn’t mean I don’t like them! I love them! I have a thing for nude (and gold) heels. They make your legs look so much longer. And who doesn’t want that?
It’s getting warmer outside and the short skirts are almost ready to leave our closets. And when they finally do, they would look perfect with a pair of nude heels. XO Wilma
I don’t no why, but I’m have a thing for gold at the moment. I love that it makes everything look fancy and chic. I experimented with gold spray paint, gold paint and of course gold leaf. So there will be more ‘golden’ DIY projects here at By Wilma! This project is made with gold leaf. You can buy gold leaf in kits like this one. If you are not planning on using it a lot, this might be the best option. When you are using it for more projects than only this one it might be cheaper to buy gold leaf and a good gold leaf adhesive separately.

Spring is in the air! There are flowers in my garden and I can go outside without putting my jacket on! OK, not for long, but still. I love how everything is changing and it’s strange to know there is still a change we are getting snow this year. With all the new flowers popping up I’m really in the mood for some ‘spring’ colors in my wardrobe. So today I put an outfit together that would be amazing for a spring celebration party. I love the coral color. It’s still one of my favorites. The necklace is just amazing! Love that one the most of the entire outfit. XO Wilma
Our kitchen is still waiting for a makeover. Our pretty 50’s stove broke and I needed a new one. I was sad about the fact that this beautiful piece of history was now broken but I also thought this might be the time to makeover the kitchen completely. I don’t like the cabinets (they are dark grey), I hate the counter top (really hard to clean metal) and the tiles are just not my taste. We also have some room left right next to the stove where we put a trolley, but it’s always a little bit of a mess because we have not enough cabinet space. I wanted a cabinet there. I thought if we needed a new stove, we could just as well do all the other things we wanted at the same time. Because if we do it later, I have to buy a stove now and later replace it for an oven and a gas cooker that we build in. Crazy right?
I’m also on the hunt for some new dining chairs. We are thinking about having colorful dining chairs like the ones you see above. Maybe all in yellow? We are thinking about painting the kitchen too, but we are not sure yet. We really love the DSW chairs. They are so pretty and classic! I absolutely love them! XO Wilma
