Ceramic roses and cotton sacks!

I made these ceramic roses...they're scented with rose essence. I've decided to put them in little cotton sacs decorated with the transfers. They can be used to perfume the linen in a drawer or in a cupboard or can simply be hung to diffuse their scent in the bathroom.

This sack is made in the same way but it's much'large enough to contain linge, bread or anything else...

Next time I'd like to make some more ceramic shades but scented with lavender!
New items for my web-shop!

Lilac, violet, purple, mauve...

They are some of the colours I like mostly....I gathered something I have in these shades... the anemones are the result of my last trip in the countryside and the plate behind I bought at a flea market in Stockholm some years ago!

It's a very busy week at work! I'm dreaming for a relaxing week end! There'll be a floral and plants exhibition on the ancient walls around Lucca this week end! I hope to take some photos and show you..if the weather'll be fine! Weather forecast isn't very optimistic!

Old treasures from the antique market!

I found these old treasures at the last antique market in Lucca.
The salade pottery plates are in a lovely cream colour. I like the shell shape too!

The old biscuit tin is from a pastry shop in Florence. It's a bit shabby but it's very decorative!

Two new items for my web-shop!
Have a nice week!!!

Olive tree wreath!

We have lots of olive tree branches during the Easter time...I like the leaves...they have a tender shade of silver green! I've made a wreath..I'm not very clever in this kind of works, but I must try to learn! On the Sunday before Easter we usually take some branches in the churches after the priest's blessing and we use to keep them at home till the next year. This reminds us when Jesus entered in Jerusalem on a donkey and people greeted him shaking palm and olive tree branches!

Olive tree is the symbol of peace I wish you all a peaceful and serene week end!

Old kitchen tools!

Some old aluminium pots and tools I found in a flea market...I like to play giving them another use than usual as a plant cache-pot or a candle holder...
