Treasures in My Room #2

My favorite thing in my room hangs in the window. I really like windows - it's one on the first things I notice when I see new houses, both from the inside and the outside. The window brings in the light and the view and gives a soul to the house. I really like deep windows with space for pillows and a butt, a cup of tea and a good book, but who doesn't?
Anyway, as my room is pretty small, most of the outer wall is a window, and I love you for that, Room. My window has light, airy, white curtains, letting all the light it want through.
I hate lit lamps in a room when I want to sleep, but I don't mind natural light at all. I love waking up at 5:30 am in the summer because of the sun beaming in at me. I believe in waking naturally, not sleeping in till noon waking in a black room feeling 30 pounds heavier and not knowing if it's 3 am or midday.

So, what is this thing hanging in my window?
It is this: The Glass Air Balloon.
I walked in at Out of the North at BCC and I fell in love. How pretty can one thing be?
It's only about 15 cm high, and the tiny little casket and strings attached are so cute and fragile. But the best part is the balloon itself; glass and with hand drawn squared lines.
I believe it is the glass shoe of the Air Balloon Ball and that some princess is running around balloon-less.

To bad, sucker princess! The balloon is MINE.

The reason why I love the airballoon I believe has to do with the fact that I really reeeeally really want to travel with one one day, but I'm scared shitless by the thought. :P
So, what to do? Face your fear and die - or long forever and ever...?


And my good friend Lisa is 27 today! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you lots and lots.

    Er det sånn at det går an at vi trommer sammen en samlet bestilling sånn at frakten blir rimeligere eller?
