Redefining some things and thoughts

I’m back! At least for today!
Just to let you know that the year which has gone by since my last post was full of ups
 and downs like the loss of a loved one and my retirement from teaching. 
This upheaval led to redefinitions of where I am and what I want from life.
In my previous post I left you awaiting some new plan. I had actually launched
 a kind of blog extension where I could provide handmade embroideries, old and 
valuable,to those who love and appreciate them. However, I gave myself the 
time to consider it and I doubt I have the profile of the dealer, of the seller. 
So, I decided otherwise despite this inconsistency. Nevertheless, I am showing
 you some of these embroideries now in case you are curious about my plan
 altogether.Even though I am not setting up an e-shop after all, I am still eager 
to place these hand-made pieces in good hands.
 So, if there is anyone who is interested, please send me a DM.

I wish you all the best for the New Year,

A project to carry out

Just a few words to announce that I’m working on a new project with the 
ambition to present it to you very soon. It’s a step which I have been thinking
 of for a while. It needs to be good enough before being uploaded, so please 
stay tuned and be patient. I deeply hope not to displease you.
 In the meantime here are some spring images taken in the country garden 
whose crazy blooms make my heart sing.
Until next time

Stay in the know

Between tea, fire and chatting

Vivaldi’s winter notes smooth the ambiance and strike the sensible chords 
of two human beings joining on a festively cozy kind of evening. 
Hot tea, the fire lit, Christmas baubles shining and the souls feel appeased 
and open up, beautifully shaping an otherwise mundane moment. A gentle 
soothing afternoon like their freshly brewed cup of tea. Not only chatting away
 but speaking from the heart, laughing loudly, sharing emotions… Nice and 
comfortable by the crackle of the fire.
My friend and I talked about sweet and sour, about how Christmas used
 to be celebrated once upon a time, about how we can go back to our roots
 and simplify our pace of life. Looking at our tree, I asked her how magical 
it would be if I had kept my mother’s decade- old Christmas ornaments. 
It would bring back happy and precious memories about the thoughts 
and love that went into them-recycling family tales through old cherished
 items. She mentioned how difficult it seems nowadays to resist consumerism,
 be moderate but also open to newness.
This was certainly my kind of evening where someone comes to meet that
 old feeling of nonchalance, this childish enthusiasm and simplicity, the purity
 so much needed in human relationships. I’m all the time urging to keep the
 authenticity of old ages inside me and coming across people who have
 the same sense of things, who conceive the world my way, 
makes me absurdly happy.

I wish you all similarly meaningful Christmas teatimes and not only.
