My Letter D

20170312_151222

Having a walk is relaxing and it makes you feel alive. Rule 1 is not to think, just breath and observe the landscape. And meet new friends. Yesterday I went walking and along my path I met a looot of new friends. Here where I live it is compulsory not to let your dogs out of your home garden,  except they are kept on a leash (I believe it is a world well known law). When they sense or see a passerby they start barking,  but usually after some warning barks they turn out to be sweet and friendly.  I love Them!

This is my contribute to Letter D for Cee’s challenge.

Meet my friends!

Enjoy,

Dom

My Etsy Dream

20170108_154031

 

Three years ago, after my third child birth, I was in search of myself. I know, after a birth, a woman is meant to be all adoring, and happy, and fulfilled.  The fact is that I wasn’t. Now I am, after three years. It has happened to me even with my first two beloved adored children. I think it is my character,  my way of being a mother.

However,  at that time I tried a full  adventure on Etsy and I even created  my “brand”, whom I have labels here at home and I sometimes use to create presents for my friends and my family. Here you can see it on the pic.

NY Resolutions: Sewing Machine & Elena Ferrante

thread-931889_1920

It is so relaxing to stay home for some days. Beside working (which it happens I like doing… despite all), I can find some time for myself too. After considering the thousand of little works always there waiting for me since ever, yesterday I:

  1. Finished reading Belgravia by Julian Fellowes, which I will write today a review about; embassy_home_night
  2. Have started reading L’Amica Geniale by Elena Ferrante  (after many books in English,  I have gone back to my mother tongue, hoping not to be disappointed after all this international ad on this series); 15c681eb-c76a-4803-952e-26be3a4a8988img400-1
  3. SEWED! I took out my old mechanical sewing machine and converted an old tablecloth in 5 small breakfast tablecloths, taking out my ETSY brand [manu’fatto], which I don’t create any more due to lack of time. What a delight! I so much love creating and reconverting old stuff in  totally new or partly new stuff. And I can consider myself satisfied with the result, which you can see here below. sewing-1332860_1280

And You?  If you are so lucky to have 3 days of holidays, what have you done to accomplish something you have dreamt for during the last time?

Waiting for you 💖

Dom
