Stay tuned, coming up unique creations....

The sea is a source of endless inspiration.
I confess I'm in love by the sea.
  I've done diving few times, and every time I get there the seabed is as if he entered into a magical world. sometimes I almost forget to breathe such is the beauty of our world.

You will soon view a new brand new collection, inspired by the beauty of corals, sea urchins, the colors, perfection and tranquility that only nature can pass on.
I hope that this challenge has a perfect ending. soon there will be in my shop, a tribute into the depths of the ocean, unattainable worlds and breathtakingly beautiful.
Stay tuned, coming up unique creations for the home and for us women who love what is unique and truly inspiring!

I know this is not my best photo, but I assure you it is a wonderful moment :)

Have a lovely Sunday

Enjoy relaxing ...

My Friday Night Outfit

I love dresses flying in the wind, giving a touch of sensuality and simultaneously mark the presence of a woman who knows what she wants, she likes her own and enjoying the moments.
 With a touch very own and special.
I chose this outfit because I identify with this style, practical, modern, feminine and with some mystery.

A Special Gift

In those moments when life is complicated, it is the small gestures that touch us most.

The gestures that put a smile on our lips and warm, inside the heart.

That's what happened to me last December. One day, when I opened the mailbox and there it was ... a special gift ... From that moment I was passionate about it, in such a way that I was not able to use it.

 Every day I touched him and put in special places, to be able to admire it and feel that smile on the lips and warmth inside me.

Meanwhile these last months, I have made some changes here for home, some necessary and painful, others, because I want to fill with color and joy all around us. In this way did a space to relax and be with friends.

I started looking for materials to be able to recycle ... pallets ... old wooden structures that I discovered, fabrics, colored inks and space began to take shape and positive vibes.

 You guys still wonder and surprise? what was the surprise???
I know!

The best surprises are always for the end :)

There is a shop .. a friend ... an artist ... that makes  wonderful journals.
I've always admired her work. The originality, quality, attention to detail ... all ...

and ..... she offered me a journal!!!!!!!

and now?
what to write on it? so many possibilities and so much responsibility, you can not just write something on a piece of art so beautiful.

Until ... I discovered ...
Every day I write a sentence that is strong and positive, that make me laugh and believe that dreams are possible.

When there are no more pages to write, I'll keeps him always in a place where I can see, and one day later I will offer it to my son, that he also always believe in the power of friends .. . even if they are far away!

The title is: Steps to a Simple Life

Thank you dear Baghy, for your generosity, for being as you are, by the talented artist and friend!

Look at her shop, and you'll be like me,  in  love!

But ...
Today is a holiday in Portugal, labor day ... and to celebrate it I and my son went to work in the garden.

We are very proud of the latest developments, because with the rain this spring, it seemed that nothing was going to happen in the garden, just a lake.
but we already have some biologic vegetables, ready to eat, and others growing.



more lettuce




 another Japanese type of lettuce, which I missed the name



And ... as the birds in the area, beautiful and friendly, ate all the ripe strawberries.

We had to make a scarecrow, and  is very sexy lady ... yes, because here we are a democracy, but the woman commands a little more ... :) ...for now ....

And we were exhausted, especially Buba, the dog, who got tired of making holes ... where it was not supposed to.

When we got back I had a pleasant email waiting for me.
Estella, our great friend and captain of europeanstreetteam, who was restless, as well as  Esther, her mother, and  organized the whole event raffles, to help me in the difficult time that I spent, and I'll never have words to thank ALL those who participated.

so ... Estela bought me some beads, and I can only thank the MUCH they had done,  with my work, and I offered them with all my heart, my one pieces.

Estella  took some pictures and put on her blog.
Estella is beautiful and I loved to see her with  my necklace :)

I feel so grateful :)
