Italian Snow ~ unbelievable but true

When people think about Italy, they imagine sun, sunny beaches and sun. Well, it is quite true but there’s a magic about my Country: you can also have tons of snow from November to April. This is in the Alps, and not only. Hundred of kilometers of magnificent natural landscapes from Winter to Summer.

I took the following pictures in Baselga di Pinè, Trento. A breathtaking lake with great surroundings.


If by chance you are going to visit Italy, remember there is not only Venice, Florence or Rome.

Embroidery ~ A Magic Handcraft Growing

One of my favourite hobbies is embroidering, specifically the so called ‘punto antico‘ and the Hardanger technique.

The magic of this art is that you actually see your works growing little by little till you can see the end of them. Maybe after some months or even years. It depends on how much time you have. It is always stunning! It gives me such a pleasure and I feel really confident and happy with my results.

Here below you can see the growing of one of my Hardanger kitchen table runners. Next summer I am going to work on my bathroom curtains. I am already excited about it!
