|A Theater, in my city. A rough ghost that will haunts we citizens forever.|
Started and never finished. Politics... Argghh
I love small villages in Italy, especially Tuscany and
Umbria. I love the way they take care of their streets, decorating
the old rough walls with flower pots and hand made objects.
It fascinates me the fact that in this walls, there are
hundreds of years you can read just looking at
the changes that has been made.
... And I love these old, weather battered doors!
Mostly, because they are made in my favorite

|This is how I've got the parcel...|
Today, I've got these pretty little things from from Paris. There were: two vintage buttons, and another bunch in a bag, three tea bags, a cat bookmark, a beautiful notes book, a nice decorative tape some candies and a beautiful wood box.
Thanks Svea from http://swig-filz-felt-feutre.blogspot.it/ . !
The happiness for the gift has been spoiled, though, because it came to me ripped open... I was too happy for the gift to think about suing the italian mail service! I hope nothing is missing.
Anyway, through this humble blog of mine, I have the opportunity to know amazing people.
I am starting gathering things for the next on the list!

2500 years ago, the etruscan people dug
this canyon, one of the many that can be
found in Central Italy. An spiritual experience
in a magic place (this is in Sovana, Tuscany)
|Tuscany, on the way to Radicofani. Sweet Tuscan hills.|
|I love to find things like this!|

When I wasn't cooking or going around, I craft, craft, craft!
Old bangles recycled, with recycled materials: an old
silk tie and some broken jewelry.
|A blanket and booties for a baby who is arriving in North|
Carolina at the end of the month... I am in a hurry!
|Guns and scooters earrings|
|I love to do paper beads|
|My buttons collection... Finally I know what to do with|
them! And of course, paper beads and silk ribbons.
|Autumn is the best season to walk near my place.|
|Sigh... I've been cooking for some months with this|
view from my kitchen...
|Our Ciro... The cat who is supposing to fish (gatto che pesca).|
Almost 18 years, and still behaves like a kitten.

Ok. The blocks are (almost) squared. Now I have six canvases to play and try to find
the hidden world on them, searching on the triangles, squares, and round shapes,
and make them come out with embroidery floss, silk, lace and buttons.
Any suggestions or ideas?
|In case you are wondering about the location|
It is the door of a cave under an old stable
we remodel to use as a lab or to have
a barbecue with friends. The door was
made by my husband with salvaged
wood and painted inspired by Mondrian.

|1) Go to the market and get some fresh cherry tomatoes.|
|3) Wash the dishes.|
Ok. I know. Seems incredible that you need all this
pots and pans to cook for 2 persons. Not at all, if you
have married an italiano!
