I have been to East Dulwich today, to have a look at what was going on at Dulwich festival….What a surprise! I didn’t really expect it to be so well organised. There were a lot, A LOT of stalls, the food section looks delicious (I forgot my wallet and perhaps that was a good thing) and on the other side it looked like “Children’s paradise”. Anyway, get ready because I have a bunch of pictures to show you, enjoy! Anyone who is thinking of going….you should definitely do it, it’s worth your time!
Happy Saturday! Last night I've taken a tour (on the Internet) of crafty spaces around the world and it was so inspiring! I wish I will manage to set up my own space, possibly as nice (and as tidy...) as these, they are all so beautiful and if I had to choose, I know I couldn't. When I look at the pictures of these spaces and then I think about the corner where I sew, well...it's not really the same. Who knows me knows how messy I can be and it happened in the past that I found myself in the middle of the room, with the floor covered in all sorts of things: scissors, fabrics, threads, buttons, ribbons and so on. But at the end of the day, when you managed to make something beautiful out of your sawing machine and your hands, the satisfaction that you feel is way over the thought of cleaning up the mess after it. Anyway, now I will take you with me in these amazing places, here are some of my favourites:
This is the beautiful crafty space created by Jennie from Craft-o-maniac (only 20$ to make this beautiful paradise corner!). She wrote a post as a guest on Poofy Cheeks and you can find it here.
I found these two pictures on push-pins, they are originally from Vintage Cottage French but unfortunately I couldn't find the page.
This little corner, found on Chez Larsson, is one of my favourite because it's simple and organised, but it still looks special. I better go now, I am going to have a super Italian breakfast with a friend, yummy!! Have a great weekend :) xx
This weekend is the beginning of Dulwich festival and I can't wait to go! There are many events in the programme, from walks in the park to concerts and the beautiful "open house" where you have the chance to actually walk in the artist's atelier/house. It's very exciting and this year I am not going to miss it! I just have to make a plan because there are so many things to do and see....I need to check it on the website: http://www.dulwichfestival.co.uk/ Here's some pictures from the previous editions that I found on the Internet:
Good evening everyone, I had another great day, thanks to the God Sun and thanks to another fact: I have tickets to go to Italy in 2 months for my birthday! I can't wait to get a proper summer day. My birthday happens to be also my parents' anniversary, it's gonna be 33 years together this year, sweet.
Speaking of sweetness...I love animals and one of my favourite is the elephant, unfortunately though, I have never seen one live because I have never been to a zoo in my life (and I never will), but who knows, maybe next year I'll go to Kenya or somewhere else where I will see a real elephant, that would be amazing! Anyway, they inspired me in these super cute bookmarks :)
I hope you like them! My favourite is the pink one, I am actually using it for my book...now I have to think of a name for it :) Good night, Gibi
It's Wednesday evening, which means: half of the week is gone already :)
This week, I carried on with my bookmarks (I know, again, but I really love them!) but I didn't have the time to take pictures....sorry!
I've been particularly happy the past two days because of the beautiful sky and sun (oh my God, did I really say two? Yes, it was only two days of sun, as sad as it is....I can't wait to move back to sunny Italy <3).
I started to go to the gym, I am taking it more seriously than I have ever done and I am very proud of it!
This is the view on the way back from the gym; I get to walk through the beautiful Brockwell park, which is my favourite spot in London.
So, S. started to bake homemade bread and I am very happy because I am well aware that the sliced bread we were used to buy is very unhealthy, full of preservatives and God knows what else.
He now bakes bread almost every night and it's delicious! We took the recipe from the internet and the result is great, perfect for breakfast or lunch.
These are some pictures I took. Some days he puts olives or makes other experiments, it's always nice, but I have to say that for me there's nothing like a delicious loaf of plain bread.
I am trying to start as a freelance translator, mainly in Czech republic, it's not easy because working full time doesn't give me a lot of time for freelancing, but I'll try my best, I really want to go away from London as soon as possible, I need the sun, I need it for more than 2 days every 2 weeks.
S. was thinking of going to Brazil for 3 months and get work experience there. This would be doable if I get to translate while I am there, so that I can have an income and save a bit of money, even if Brazil is expensive....we'll see, who knows. For now, I hope in more sunny days :)
