love

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

after ten-hours plus of work at the new pâtisserie, my needs are reduced to food, love, and sleep.

however, my head retained its ability to produce some of the best dreams ever.

right now, I want my boyfriend, his car, possibly some good wine. we’d go to the mountains, sleep in the boot, on an inflatable mattress, covered with warm duvet covers, listen to crazy music and laugh until our cheek hurt. or maybe, we could just go to london, get a nice cosy flat, and lie in bed all day.

right now, I also want my gremlin. just her presence would do me good.

ps. can you believe I just recently took yet another pictures of my window? damn, I do love those linen curtains.

early autumn

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

yesterday, if it wasn’t for the thirty-two celsius degrees temperature, I could have believed autumn was here already.

it’s all about the light. mutted tones. and yellow colours.

oh, autumn, I’m waiting for you and your rainy days, filled with cookie-baking, scarf-knitting, and cosy boyfriend-snuggling.

apparently almost a week went by since I last talked to you. but I have extremely good reasons. the pâtisserie has been busy. I have to take care of a five-month old cat, which is oh-so-sweet but also dam good at hide-and seek. I bought a terrific semi-pro printer to finally make some of my pictures available through my shop. I’ve restlessy scanned and printed some pretty polaroids. me and my bestfriend set up a new etsy shop, la moustache.

can’t wait to show you all the beautiful prints I’ve made today. xxx

ps. don’t you just love the new shop banner? I do. kites are the thing. I would normally put a picture, but it would mean that I need to open illustrator, and I have a hot bowl of homemade mushroom soup waiting for me.

I’ve always loved kate’s illustrations. to me, she’s the greatest. her style is unique and fun and so very delicate. so it seemed obvious I would pick her shop as the place where I’d buy my very first piece of art.

I’m so happy I did. the print looks gorgeous; and now I can’t wait to have finished re-decorating my bedroom so I can proudly hang it to my wall.

perfect. thank you kate!

today is a special day for many reasons. some of them being pretty obvious. happy voting us people.

on my side of the world, I enjoyed catching up with my favourite blogs and putting this image collection together. sweet.
I also spent a lot of time knitting myself a new scarf. can’t wait for it to be finished.

and I bought three linen canvases. hopefully I’ll have more time to paint when my room make-over will be done. fingers crossed.

due to the heavy rains, we had a major power cut today. four hours. in the dark.

I was at the pâtisserie, so we just hung out, speaking silly and playing cards; since we couldn’t make anything pastry-related. ovens down. mixers down… fun day.

spent the last couple of days in Nice. under the rain. I was supposed to stay there a day longer, but the weather was so bad, I felt sad for my cat Pirate. so I headed home and he was so happy to see me he kept following me around the house.

he slept with me. purring the whole time.

after two days spent without the internet, it felt good to read my favourite blogs again, sipping homemade avocado milkshake.
have you ever noticed how avocado has the earthiness of pumpkin and smooth roundness of banana?

it’s still raining. which makes me super*happy. I’ve spent the day -off- watching harry potter movies and getting wet outside from taking pictures under the heavy rain drops.

there I spotted those sweet clay hearts my sister made ages ago. they read A and F. love love love.

the clock rang five pm and I decided to go for a walk. a nice mountain village. soft cold wind. and rock stairs that lead nowhere.

it felt really nice and soothing. making me realise how lucky I am. for everything.
