Enjoy your vacations and be creative!
The pic-nic basket is lined with special fabric and linen to keep food and beverage cool during the hot days of summer...
I love the glass transparence! I usually buy old bottles and jars at the flea markets and then I etch them...i like personalizing most of my items...
Finally, I bought this Madonna at the last antik market in Lucca. I like this statue a lot...she is so sweet...

The Xmas tree, made in Murano glass by a famous artist, is placed in Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. In the background a sound and light show celebrates the 150° anniversary of Giacomo Puccini's birth.
With this postcard from Lucca, I wish you all Merry Christmas!!!

We usually buy bottles and jars at the flea markets and then we etch them.
We make by ourselves most of our items. That's relaxing and enjoyable and give us the chance to be creative! And this is very important for us!!!
Happy week end!!!

I bought this commode on Saturday. It's perfect for my new bedroom! I repainted it and gave it a patina to have a more charming look. I'm satisfied....when I'm creative I'm always satisfied of myself! I've also added some new items on my web-shop (http://lescotrions.it/) and I've made some Christmas decorations too.

The provencal food market in Antibes
This week end I was in South of France with my friend Paola. We love this area and we try to go there everytime is possible! I wish to move there in the future...but it's only a dream...
We visited some markets and for the first time...we made a vide-grenier! It was fantastic! We spent most of the time laughing...we'll do it again and again!
Nice antique-market...we're ready to buy!!!

I bought this Madonna statue at the last antique market ...I've been looking for it for a long time...that's strange but in a catholic country as Italy I'd difficulties to find it! I bought the table in Antibes some years ago...I've repainted it with the "patine" technique...I want to give a new look to some pieces of furniture...new home new look! I'm going definitively to move to my mum's home next Monday...the last effort before enjoying a well-earned rest!

Here they are two pictures of the bathroom in my mother's home. Her house is now a mass...all my things have to move there so we have to change the furnitures' positions and create new settings! In one way it's enjoyable, but also a bit tiring! I can't wait for some relaxing days!
Have a nice week end!!!
martedì 7 ottobre 2008
So many things to do...dismantling my old house and moving to my mother's one...boxes, furniture, objects to be packed and moved! And also a lot of things to do at work...I work in an art Foundation and we'll have three exhibitions to be open in the next 2 months! But yesterday was a sunny day and I enjoyed a cup of tea on the balcony...may be the last one...I'm not sad...a new chapter of my life will open and it may be very interesting!
I wish you all a great week!

My life is changing...it isn't the first time I must restart my life...every time it's difficult, stressing and tiring but I think that we can learn from every situation...we may lose something but surely we may gain something else... what it's really difficult for me it's "resetting" my mind..but I'm sure I'll make it!
I want to give this nice award Magny (http://magnyslillekrinkelkrok.blogspot.com) gave me, to some blog friends...I really love their blogs...they are a source of inspiration for me and they all are very nice and creative persons!

Holidays are over... it hasn't been a fantastic summer this year... many problems to handle... life isn't always easy, but we say that after the storm sunshine always comes back! I've neglected my blog in the last weeks, but I hope to recover my energies for my hobbies! Creativity is an important help for overcoming difficulties!

I've found these two old enamelled coffe-pots in my mother's loft ...they belonged to my grand-grandmother! They are a little bit ruined but... I put them on a shelf of my kitchen and I'm very proud of my old family memories!
I wish you a nice week end!

I love my bike! It's so old...and it has 2 very big baskets! I live in the pedestrian area, so I always use it to go to work, to do shopping, to visit friends...my bike is a part of me!!! I've bought some new plants for the balcony...it has been very hot during the past days and some of the old plants died!
I want to give this award which Iris gave me, to other three blogs I like so much! It has been a very difficult choice, because I really love all your blogs!
The first one I give to Desireé (http://vosgesparis.blogspot.com/). She was the first who helped me when I start blogging. Her blog is charming and sophisticated, a source of inspiration!
The second is for Marjolijn (http://somethingwhite.blogspot.com/). Her blog is charming and romantic and she is one of the first persons I met blogging!
I give the third award to Ann-Catrin (http://finthemma.blogspot.com/). I like the brightness and the joy of life of her blog!!!
I didn't understand what a blog was and how many friends it could give the chance to meet! Now I know! Thank you all!
Have a nice week-end!
