Coeurs et pampilles

Now that days are shorter, I spend less time outside... and because I'm always overactive, the only way for relaxing is making something new for me and for LC...



















...today it's been the day of "hearts and pampilles"...

















...I used vintage fabrics from my grandmother's trousseau...

















...transfers...

















...ribbons and old laces...













...new decorations made with old materials...a way to remember who passed away!
Wish you a wonderful week end!!!

hi vale,

same here.

it is really, truly, seriously interesting for me to learn the italian tradition and custom: i'd never heard of the day of the hearts and pampilles before. little things you made for the day are so sweet!

...i've just managed to catch up on your recent posts...oh, greenish lemons look pretty and i love all the whites you've posted this week such as the rose and linens.

even at the end fo october, it's going to be another summer's day (25 degrees c!) over here in osaka.

you, too, carry on enjoying the italian sun!

ciao, ciao,

ktxx

ps
many thanks for visiting my blog! no, i don't follow the american custom "halloween", either. it does exist in japan just commercially. there's no harm for kids to have fun, though.

Dear Vale,

I missed a lot of beautiful posts !!
what a lovely things you have made, and such beautiful photo's !!
I enjoyed them all this morning :-)
My father is still very ill, so i do not have much time for blogging...
they still don't know what is wrong with him, but he lose lots of weight, and is very weak (sorry for my bad English )we are very worried about him (my mother passed away already, so he lives alone)


send you lots of hugs, and i hope, to "see" you soon !
Have a nice weekend
