white wednesday

It is white wednesday day!; and yesterday did these!
I was brought up in a very religious family! So what you see above were extremely common around my family's house since there were priests and nuns! In fact we used to pray every single day!
As i grew i got a bit aside of all religion! My opinion slightly changed and i stopped going to the church! One thing remained however! I love religious pictures! I got these antique ones from one of my aunts and as i have loads of them i decided to try and get them in a they can be easily displayed whenever one feels. I do love the result! What do you think?! I'll have some selling too! -

So SPRING IS HERE!!!!!!!! Can't believe it!!!!! What a LONG winter we had!!!! And the sun is shinning and my baby is much better and i'm baking easter cookies (although i still had no time to do the decor!!!) and i had such nice sweet comments from special people on my last post!
Just want to say that:
I always think that love should always be paid with love!; and i've seen you - Luiza -  sending presents to everybody! it was time for you to get one too!
I do think that there are amazing people around here! People that you never met face to face and still... always have sweet kind words for me (even when i do not have time to read your blogs and leave you a comment!) I always write something whenever i visit your blogs! I think i must do it! it's my way of saying thanks for allowing me to learn with you! and believe me! i've learned soooooooooooooooooooo much!; i've relaxed!; i've cryed; i've dreamt; i've traveled!... Isn't that a reason to say thanks?!

Wish you all a gorgeous Sunday!!!! Now?! Just gonna go outside and indulge myself with some sun!!!!

My baby was sick all last week!; so... no time to blog at all!!! No time to post new things!...; no time to visit you!!!!... sooooo sorry! She is now getting better and yesterday i had time to do this heart shaped lavender pillow for a very special friend! It's made of crochet and embelished with some of the things i love to use on the things i do! I think it turned out really sweet! Don't you?!
Got to run!... Long day today!...

Ohhhh! Last week i was really lucky! Not only won Luiza's giveaway and opened my own shop, but also found this HUGE piece of wood on the beach! I mean it's really hudge!!!! - ask my husband!!!!!! When he got home with it he was soooooo tired that 1st thing he said was: "OH Oh! this time you'll have to do something really special for me!!!!" I did!! I made him one of those traditional portuguese desserts with 20 egg yolks and tons of sugar, that he adores and that, because it's a caloric nuclear bomb, i seldom do!!!
The wood was standing there and when i put my eyes on it it just screamed at me:"take me! I am yours!" Would you resist it?! It's just beautiful and just perfect for something! By now it has some succulent plants that i hope will grow as bonsai. Maybe i'll add something else to it! What do you think?!
Wait until i show you what a brough from my parent's fields!!!!!! Let me be really naughty!!!! ... and show you on the next post!!! ok?!!!
Happy day!
