Gypsy days

For some inexplicable reason, today felt like a gypsy day…

It might have been the weather—uncertain and windy and with a gypsy song hanging from a murky sky…

Thus, Shakira’s gypsy song has been on my mind almost all day today… remember? “Walking gets too boring when you learn how to fly lalala, cause I'm a gypsy, are you coming with me… I might steal your clothes and wear them if they fit me…. lalala”.

Oh and I would too! I would certainly wear your 'secret garden’ frocks and magical jewelry… rings and bracelets and necklaces too—you know the ones… the ones you wear whenever the world gets too big for you, or too small or too crowded and you just have to disappear to some imaginary woods somewhere so that you can become one with Nature and be one with yourself again?  That's me.  But I hope you'll understand.  ;)

 Anyway, what was I saying? Ah yes that today I looked at myself in the mirror and thought I was staring right at Shakira on one of her worse bad hair days-roots and all?  So I colored my roots and then decided to change the look of my girly room as well.  To spice it up a bit and fit with the day?

I like to change and rearrange things around often when I get tire of the same… same look, same old boringness.

So I put all of my shabby chic beddings and pillows away and out came the gypsy in me...  

We are all wanderers on this earth. our hearts are full of wonder,
and our souls are deep with dreams.
 - gypsy proverb
Don't be afraid to sparkle...
and always-always look around you for those little joys
And remember not to forget the flowers blooming at your feet
while trying to reach the moon...

Love my little gypsy room...

And at the end of the day before you close your eyes,
be content with where you have been,
and proud of who you are…

Love you all!


  1. such a beautiful work you did with your room!

  2. Cielo, I love the vibrant colors, patterns and fabric - it definitely brightens a winter day! Oh and those gypsy shoes! I'm so looking forward to sandal weather. Blessings, Joanie in Michigan.

    1. Sandals... oh I can't remember what they look like anymore... ;) This winter has been so long... but I'm already looking for some cute sandals yes...

  3. Loved the post - such pretty patterns and fabric. The colors are so pretty.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Your Gypsy room is so telling of your spirit Cielo. It and you reminded me of something from long ago and I just could not remember what it was. Then it came back..remember when we were little girls and we loved to play dress up in our mother's clothes. Standing there in front of the mirror seeing whoever
    you wanted to be. That is still you and you have kept that pretend feeling alive in your here and now.
    Thanks for sharing and letting s stare into the looking glass with you.

  5. Ahhh Sherry I so love to see you here! You bring joy and dreams and friendship to my little world... you make me dream.... and I love it!

    Hugs a plenty
