slowly

re-emerging from my dose of yearly bugs.
This time they hit hard.
even though, I've been
pinning, crocheting and drawing.
Distractions, an effective way to trick 
the mind.

collecting (for a shop update)

I'm collecting and making things for  a shop update.
Here few of the objects they might go for sale.

Inspiration comes from my surroundings.
Domestic landscape, everyday objects not so casually 
justapposed forming interesting patterns and colour 
combinations.

despite

she feels poorly, (with temperature and a bad cough) 
she wanted to celebrate her birthday anyway
and asked me to bake her this cake.

after I prepared the mixture for the carrot cake, 
about to go into the oven, I realised the oven broke down.

our neighbours kindly bake it for us and "saved the day".
:-)

have a nice weekend!

simple things

I like to stack my washed pottery,
to catch the shadows on the wall when a ray of sunshine sneak
through the window,
it only happens in sunny late afternoons and for a brief moment.

It's spring term holidays here in UK, 
slowing down the pace,
we embrace the here and now.

the woman who held together all the threads of the family'







collected

I've been collecting magazines for years.
I'm done with it.
I took me 4 weeks to edit 72 interior magazines!
2,3 magazines a day (and a good bunch yesterday).
Ended up with a pile of cuttings I'd like to keep.
Almost never read an article in those magazines,
only looked at pictures.

doodles

I started to draw again,
I've stopped 10 years ago 14 years ago.
It's a slow internal process.
