um ano! / one year!


One year has gone by and the pain is still sharp. I cried today. No one will ever fill  his shoes. Something broke inside my heart a year ago. It still breaks, every time i think about him. Just sadness is left.

olhar sobre o jardim / morning light on my garden




Algumas photos do meu jardim (parte de trás). Podem ver o meu local de descanso junto da piscina, o "solário",  parte da vista sobre a casa, os meus lagos com uma ponte que o meu marido fez! ´É a minha parte preferida!

Some photos of my garden ( part of the backyard): This is my favourite spot to rest. It's close to the swimming pool and it overlooks the whole garden, the pinetree field, the house and back porch. Besides sitting there you can here the water feature of the pond and you have a view on both ponds and the bridge that my husband built. Isn't it gorgeous?!!
On the next post i'll show you our "woods", our fuit trees (that already have peaches, plums and figs) and my son's tree house (also built by my husband).
Hope you like it! Happy new wk!

a sad day ...


Um post tardio para dizer que é uma tristeza profunda que um dos meus autores  preferidos se tenha calado para sempre! Eu sei! eu sei! toda a história da imortalidade!!!; mas é pena ...


A late night post to tell you that today it's a very sad day for me! One of my favourite portuguese writers is dead. Love his books! Our Nobel Prize for Literature is dead! only sadness is left... ... ...

o meu cantinho musical / my musical corner



Este é o meu cantinho musical no meu alpendre da sala. Adoro sentar-me lá fora e beber algo ou então ter a música a tocar enquanto jardino. Na foto podem ver a "rocking chair", que apanhei do lixo e remodelei, e mais duas peças que comprei na feira de antiguidades de Domingo passado: a jarra, que fazia parte do lavatório mas que resolvi usar para colocar umas peónias; e uma mala de viagem que achei um charme!
Bom fim-de-semana!

This is what i call my musical corner! It  is on my porch and i just love to seat there or have the music playing while i'm gardening! On the photo you'll recognize the rocking chair that i found on the garbage and recycled, and 2 more things from the antique fair i went to last sunday: the water "jar (sorry don't know the exact name for that) and the old travel suitcase that i think looks charming! You can also see the figure of a "madonna" that it's not really a madonna!?! In fact, it's a brazilian goddess called Imanja.
Happy weekend!

aqui está ela! / the antique basin refreshed!

Aqui está o uso que dei à peça que comprei na feira de antiguidades- Decidi usá-la no jardim junto da piscina. Acho que o resultado está muito giro! O que acham?!

Here is the old basin i bought on Sunday. I've decided to use it on the garden close to the swimming pool. I think the result is cute. What do you think?!
Wait until you see the other pieces i got!
THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT! YOU ARE WELCOME ANYTIME!
