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 
and 
check out the post to follow!

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.

Impressions from Prague





















Have you ever browsed a map in search of a hidden gem that you 
were not yet aware of? This was the case with us last summer 
when Prague appeared as an option. So our choice was made.
 Spontaneously, without a second thought.
The city is definitely beautiful to look at, as is widely accepted. 
Strolling along the old pebbled streets gives you the feeling of being
 one with the historical past. Gazing at the sunsets between the towers 
along the river made me bless the moment we decided to visit
 this architectural wonder. 
The discovery of the Czech countryside added to this sense of marvel
 and filled me with images of golden balls of hay, cute vegetable 
gardens and vintage cars. Nevertheless, if you -like me- are imagining
 yourself posing by Charles Bridge as if a princess in a fairy tale,
 please don’t make the mistake of going there in August!
 You will be met with a never-ending crowd of tourists and scorching
 heat. Gladly, there will be plenty of that exquisite beer to save 
your day. It’s available everywhere and is even cheaper than water.
 If only the faces of those serving it, were a bit more cheerful. 
I wondered if the serious demeanor was a remnant of a bitter
 historical past. Could this past have affected even the people’s love
 for flowers? Where were the coneflowers, hollyhocks, dahlias, 
alliums, anemones, hydrangeas and all those gorgeous summer 
blooms that I was sure the Czech climate could afford? 
Unpleasantly surprised at the lack of abundance of flowers. 
Spotted some beautiful vases and splash of color though.
 Hope you like the time capsule I created for pretty Prague 
and I’m pleased to share it with you. 
 Wherever you go,
 whatever you may see,
 be sure to keep looking
 until you find the treasure you are seeking.
Until next
 O
