a touch of spring

gardening day

After about a week at home I finally end up going out and stopped at a local garden centre and bought this wonderful flowers to hang on a tree on my garden. It makes me feel really happy when i can touch soil and smell plants. The final result looks pretty.

It is almost full summer now! And yesterday was a really hot day (33 degrees), which is GREAT because i adore very hot summer days, and my son and husband were finally able to enjoy the swimming pool for the 1st time this year.

I saw this fairy at a fleamarket in germay,(we lived there for 2 years) and fell in love with it!! and... it does look great in my garden.
The 2nd picture is all about one of my greatest passions! oriental things!! here i mixed them with normal european handpainted pictures. I love to mix things you apparently should not mix.

I love going to local fairs! one can always find something pretty! About a month ago i found this birds cage. It was all black and full of dust, but after being cleaned and white painted it looks really beautiful. Now it just stays on this metalic bench but i intend to use it as a candle holder or with an orchidea inside and use it as a table centerpiece.

It is insanity to hate every single rose because one hurt you;because one sticked you...
give up all your dreams because one did not come true.

lose faith in all prayers because one was not heard...
give up all efforts because one failed...
it is insanity to condemn all friendships because one betraied you...
desbelief all types of love just because one was unfaithful...
it is insanity to give up all chances of being happy because one attempt did not work out!
I hope you do not make such mistakes in your way!
remembering that there´s always another chance, another friendship, another love, another strengh!

one of the most beautiful songs in the world

Música: FELIZ
Cantor: Gonzaguinha

Para quem bem viveu o amor
duas vidas que abrem
não acabam com a luz
São pequenas estrelas que correm no céu
trajetorias opostas
sem jamais deixar de se olhar.

É um carinho guardado
num cofre de um coração que voou
É um afeto deixado nas veias
de um coração que ficou.

É a certeza da eterna presença
da vida que foi, na vida que vai
é saudade da boa, feliz cantar

Que foi, foi, foi,
foi bom e pra sempre será
Mais, mais, mais
Maravilhosamente a.....mar

Que foi, foi, foi,
foi bom e pra sempre será
Mais, mais, mais
Maravilhosamente a.....mar

This is the entrance to my garden and house as it is right now, in full spring.. I´m symbolically opening my house to friends and to anyone who shares the same likes, passions and ways of life as i. I love every single thing that´s beautiful; from antiques to design; from people to dances; from languages to plants; from linen to romantic things; from pictures to books. If anyone shares the same "opinion" or not please...

do come in!!!! Enjoy yourself!
