# on my shelf - Wendy of Beeldsteil

as you might know one of my favourite hashtags on
 instagram is the #onmyshelf one
Love to admire all these beautiful styled shelves 
(or whatever used... tables, cabinets, cupboard)
 but most of all the added personal touch 
gives us the idea getting to know each other a little bit...
and that is what attracts me most

because it thought it would be fun to share and to be inspired 
by each other's creative ideas I have asked some of my favourite bloggers
 to share their "shelfies" accompanied by some words or a short story... 
don't we all love to share and to be inspired by each others 
creative ideas and knowing a little bit more about it ? 

this week Wendy  - very talented photographer, photo-/interior stylist and founder of 
 the beautiful and always inspiring lifestyle, photography and interior design blog
 "Beeldsteil" shares hers...

On my shelf – A first hint of Christmas

This year I'm late with the Christmas decorations compared to previous years. 
But slowly little hints of Christmas are entering my home. 
Starting on the open kitchen shelves Botkyrka by Ikea. Still favourite because of
 the simple design and the material it’s made of: powder-coated steel.

Like many things in my home, it’s all in the details. 
No striking and gleaming decorations for me. The X cup from Design Letters is 
a good example of a minimal yet beautiful Christmas hint.
 The wooden stars give a more graphic look and feel than
 the traditional festive season decoration.

My love for beautiful ceramics is still going strong. 
Lately I combine it more and more with used home accessories. 
Like the two glasses that I found on a vintage market in an old town
 in the Netherlands. Hand-blown from the late seventies.
 A nice contrast with the modern white tableware. 
Now they serve as a plant holder, next week I might use it for candles or wine. 
That's the beauty of open shelves and accessories,
 I can change it again and again.. Love to do that,  especially at this time of year.
 I could spend hours on styling and creating new combinations.

Of course a Christmas tree can’t be missed, the next few days
 I’ll search for the perfect tree. Not too big or too small and beautifully shaped.

Wish you all wonderful December days and lots of fun decorating!

Love, Wendy
