Diamond jubilee picnic

I read on the newspapers that during this week end England celebrates the queen's diamond jubilee with lots of events, street parties and picnics...
...this is my way to join my british readers showing you my last little project...
...my picnic basket made from an old willow case belonged to my grandmother...
...just some hemp and ribbons...plates, glasses and wooden cutlery...
...and a paper union jack bunting! Happy week end!

My apple tree

A dwarf apple tree for a "dwarf" garden!




































I surely won't eat its apples...but I can enjoy the scented white flowers!


My pc has been broken for weeks...I'm posting from my daughter's one...but it's difficult to have it from a teen! Thanks for your messages!

Children of Cambodia 1

Cambodia is a very poor country....Cambodia is magic and rich of artistic and naturalistic treasures...more than 53% of the population are children under 14...that's the true treasure...the future!

Luggage...

This old suitcase belonged to an old uncle of my mother...














...the original old labels are worn...













...he loved travelling and surely it was more unusual than nowadays at the beginning of the last century...
















...it's time for me to pack my luggage! I'm leaving to Cambodia and I'm so thrilled!
See you in two weeks!

Pumpkin muffins

A new camera and nothing new to photograph...













...this morning a friend gave me a big pumpkin from her vegetable garden and that's what I made today...pumpkin muffins with goat cheese! Easy and delicious for the aperitive!


400gr pumpkin
milk
parmesean cheese
70 gr goat cheese (french chevre)
70 gr ricotta cheese
70 gr flour
1 egg
almond flakes
salt
pepper


Cut the pumpkin, boil it in milk and mash it with a fork.
Add salt, pepper, flour, almond flakes, 3 tsp of parmesan cheese, the ricotta cheese, the chopped goat cheese and the yolk. Stir the egg white beated until stiff. You can add diced ham or bacon too. Bake ar 180° for 45 minutes.

Yes I know... I'm late for Halloween but I still have a big amount of pumpkin and I'll find something more to do with it! I already have an idea...

..and dreams to realize in 2012!

Buon anno
Happy new year
Bonne année
Feliz año nuevo
Ein gutes neues Jahr
Gott Nytt År

Vosges Paris Concept Page

Ciao everybody!!!!
It's a so long time I have not been blogging that I quite forget how to do it! But today I received a message from Desiree and...here I'm!
When I started blogging, she has been my first friend and she gave me some suggestions about what blogging is and what to do to keep in touch with others...it's seems I forgot her lesson lately! Sorry Desiree!!! Anyway I'm fine...I still make my little decorative projects but not as often as before...and I'm probably a bit shy in posting again!
I thought it was a nice idea trying again and mentioning Desiree's new blog....


























































...every week you can win fantastic giveaways...you are a sort of Mamma Natale, Desiree!!!

Thanks for all your nice messages during these months...I haven't forgotten you!!!
I'll probably be back here...sometimes... I need time to restart!!!
Big hugs to you all!

Good morning Spring!

Sunny and warm days...
















...new blossoms and new lives...
















...pear-tree...
















...beautiful white flowers and fruits soon...
















...a candid cloud on the green lawn...
















...that's what I see from the windows when I'm at work...just to remind me that nature is awakening...and just to tell you all "hello" and thanks for your comments!
I'll be back as soon as my batteries are charged again!
Enjoy Spring days!
