Guirlandas Especiais

I took this picture of a window in London at Christmas time. It is such an elegant wreath!





 I simply loved these, one with spices and the other with cherries frozen in ice.

Wooden Fruit Boxes - Other Purposes

These ones I had done myself and I guess I have already shown them here before.
 They are so versatile.


 Also very interesting in shops.

 They look nice with lighting too, don`t they?

Seaside Inspiration

Well, this is nowadays one of my favorite themes. 
 Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
 Meanwhile I have done a few other things to decorate the beach home and I will show  you as soon as I am able to get there again.
 All the images are very inpiring and calming.


 Such a cute colourful spot!
 Don`t forget to enhance the pictures to chek all the details!


There is more of it on the index column on the right side of this page under NAUTICAL MOOD

Accidents Happen

I managed to break my foot!! I was playing hide and seek with my dog and ...you know, now I have a heavy plaster cast atouched to me. I am trying to get along well with it. I am supposed to carry it around for 45 days!!! No driving and no touching the ground with the foot, Jesus, I am a taurus!! And this is only the first day. I am scared and my patience is gone in the first day.
On the other side, I know I can`t complain, this is nothing but it really sucks.
Pois é, consegui quebrar o pé brincando de esconde esconde com minha cachorra, Agora estou com um gesso super pesado na perna. To tentando me adaptar com isto. Serão 45 dias sem dirigir e sem colocar o tal pé no chão. Pra uma taurina, sem pé no chão vai ser duro. Ninguém merece!
Hoje é o primeiro dia e eu já estou sem paciência. Por outro lado, sei que é uma coisa a toa , nem posso me queixar, mas que é uma chatice, isto é. Prometo que só vou reclamar hoje, ta?

I loved the one with the little houses.







Both done with drifted wood.
Loved the one with the flowers!

Family Tree - Arvore genealogica

I have been wanting to make my own family tree for a long time. The first step is to gather some cool ideas.
 I hope you like them.
 They seem easy to make, don`t they?
 I think it will also be easy for my granddaugher to understand where she came from.
 This one is specially cute.




 This one has been quilted.
 I guess this one could be painted with aquarell.


There is also a nice family tree HERE to download
I will show you mine when it is ready,ok?
