Although, the weather during  daytime is still warm, we all know that the Fall it's here. I really do not have a favorite season, but because of the events involved in the next few months, it will have a stronger meaning to me. It will be "that Autumn". Changing the job, opening my own store, moving, new plans, being able to create again and so on so on... I'm so grateful that I've accomplished so many things by now and to be able to look forward to what life will bring me next. I fought hard for what I have and I scarified many things, but I can easily say: It was worth it!!! I never thought I will say this so soon: I'm happy with who I become, I'm calm inside and I know that I'm on my way to become a better person with each passing day. It's possible and it's only up to us.

Paint on the wall

I love those houses filled with paintings, illustrations or anything that can be framed and look good. It gives to the house a personality and it tells you a lot about the persons in the house. A empty house = empty soul. This is how I see things. All the homes in which I was ( England or Ireland) I saw at least one paint and I wish that could happen in Romania also. That's way I will have a lovely collection in my store just for those of you who love and appreciate a bit of art in their space. I've restarted to paint and I feel great. So, those of you who read my blog- I know that most of you are Romanians - be brave and come visit my shop and let me know what would you like to have on your walls... I can help you choose or make one exactly how you wish. I look forward to see u in October. xoxox

Nora Rochel and Sabrina Meyns

I discovered tow amazing designer who transform the world of jewelry in a real ART. 

The first one is Nora Rochel who captured my attention long time ago and she still reminds one of my favorite jewelry designer. "Wearing Nora Rochel‘s rings turns one‘s hands into small landscapes and gardens"

And the second one is Sabrina Meyns. "Sabrina creates incredibly delicate and intricate jewellery and sculptural pieces using handmade paper and precious metals, crossing boundaries between these two materials by combining them in innovative ways."

Chester city

Sunday was a full day with Non-Stop walking. And as promised, I posted some pictures of this beautiful city called Chester. The architecture is stunning and rich in decorations. It's a great place to visit and take pictures, especially early in the morning before the streets get very busy and crowded. The shopping was great and my legs were killing me as I had to walk for miles to reach a big craft supplies store. But when I arrived there....ohh I forgot about thirst, hunger or fatigue. 
But that passed and here we are all starting our week.This day started pretty intense: I've been told that one of my favorite actors Andy Whitefield from Spartacus, died yesterday; and last night one of the cats had a "good" dinner in the living-room ( a crow- so imagine how the room was: full of feathers. Horrible view). What can I say: life can't be perfect. 
 I hope this week will be a good one for all of you and for me also. xoxox

Deadly comb- Shabby Chic & Antique

Here I am in UK (Frodsham) enjoying a cup of tea, some peanut butter and listening to BBC 2 who are playing beautiful songs dedicated to those gone on September 11. I can't believe that 10 years have passed since the terrorist attack. Many of you probably already read about it and everybody is talking now, so I leave this subject behind. I would like to share some photos from yesterday. As mentioned in the previews post, I am passionate of Shabby chic and antiques. And when I find them in the same spot, it's hard for me to resist it. 
I really envy British people because they have their entire country filled with beautiful stuff. Every time I come here, I definitely have to buy something. That's way I never bring a lot of money with me, otherwise I will spend them all. This time I was focused in finding nice framed paintings; and of course I bought 4 small ones. There were so many other things which I wanted to have but money and space are an issue for me this time. When I have a craft store just across the street from the antique stores, than I have a big problem - choosing which one is more important. This time I have to supply my studio with craft tools which are so hard to be found in Romania.
Last 2 days were amazingly beautiful: sunny and warm. So I walked a lot, I drank Gin&Tonic in the garden, I fell asleep in a huge hammock and I cooked Chinese; what a life !?! Today some more shopping in Chester, which is a beautiful city. I will take some pictures and posted. I wish you a beautiful Sunday.

Illustrated Books-Gabriella Barouch

I really admire those who still believe in poetry and books. The sensation of holding a book, the smell of paper and ink can't be compared  with reading online. I'm still buying old books although I can't read them ( they are in Russian or German) I still prefer to read classics from my grandmother's library, or to spend time in a antique store. One of the artists I would like to have on my shelf is Gabriella Barouch. She blow me away with her complexity and in the same time-simplicity. Not only that her drawings are amazing but she creates  an interesting infusion of texture, nature elements and creatures of any kind. I like her art a lot.
Till next time: have a lovely weekend and enjoy every second of it.

Free People

 I couldn't stop myself selecting jewelries that I like from FreePeople. They are totaly what I would like to wear. I like the Gold and silver combination with an indian look and how the metal is polished. I haven't seen before such beautiful stones and the colors are just amazing. Because I make jewelries I tend to buy items that are hard to make and definitely this are one of them. Like them?..I sure do.
