It was definitely a not week the past one. I had work all the time, and I spent the all weekend on bed. I'm not feeling well, I don't know why. I'm sorry I haven't make so much updates as I wanted to neither visit your blogs. Hope this week will be much better. At least I know I have some good news to tell you! :D
At least I could see a lot of movies, something I haven't done for a long time. I saw " Penelope", one of my favorites movies, not only for the story but for the theme: flowers and butterflies. I love the decoration of her bedroom and her clothes! I saw "Chocolat", "Ultraviolet" and "Brave".
Talking about "Penolope" I like very much terrariums. I never made one. Ok, I'm lying. I have made one with mosses. But the thing didn't go so well. They died. I believe the mosses I picked up weren't so healthy as I thought, and everything died. But my mother is about to make birthday. Guess when? In the 14th of February! So original, ha? And I think I'm going to make to her a terrarium with a little orchid, her favorite flower, inside him. What do you think?
I saw this ideas for terrarium and I found they are so good!
"A place for twiggs" is a blog of a lovely self-taught portuguese web designer. I have to tell, I find him this week, when I follow a link of a link of a link. But I'm glad I find it! She has the most amazing work! The most cute desings! She his really talented! And she even also has some free printables.
This has been a tough week. I'm sorry I didn't said a thing.
It rained a lot, again. I was soaked and wet everyday, and spent all the time or in the lab or working on excel. It has been rough!
Instagram recap of this week
But, I have a great news! Oh, yes indeed. This blog is on fire, and there it's going again through a new revolution, and has it is the second revolution it's going to be a double revolution. But, I won't tell now. You will have to wait for the next week. But, some of the features will be changing, I think. As I told you here, it was about time of "The Scy-thing" of the month, but and you will see why, it won't happen, at least this month. But I'm thrilled to this new change!
Yesterday I went to a workshop to learn how to produce mushrooms at home, and some ways to cook them. When I'll receive the recipes I'll do some of them, and share it with you. Yesterday, a chef from the restaurante "T4" in Braga, cooked bruchetas, tomatos filled with mushrooms, and a risotto with to type of mushrooms. About the prodution, it will take 6 months from now , and then I'll share with you how to produce it and the results. I don't want to tell know because I want to see the results, if I didn't make nothing wrong.
This brooch I bought this week on Springfield, has a little history. It was on the stores some time before my birthday, and I wanted to give it to me as a little present. But as I'm not very luck, it disappeared. But now on sales it came back, and less expensive, something that it's always wellcome.
Sales times are still here. Shana has cute clothes. For example, I don't like to see myself wearing leggings, and Shana had ones that I felt frelly to wear them. And I loved this shirt, with this little owls.
Polli has the most wonderful work in wood, and it's a company very environmental responsability with a low footprint. I think we should bought more to this types of companies/enterprises because his effort to do great job and knowing it's place in our planet, it's something that should be more valued. Don't you think their work it's great?
I think I've told you a lot of times, I like to draw. But the problem is I don't draw very well, and sometimes I'm afraid to look stupid drawing something that does not look like a draw. So, I love and stay wordless (and sometimes with some envy... but nothing bad ehehehe ) when I see illustrations from wonderful and great illustrators. Kris, has cute illustrations, and you can see only by her work that she also a cat lover.
I'm portuguese, right? And spite the problems and stupidities it exists here, I like my country. So, I have to share the great talents that we have here. A friend of mine, presented to me this page. I stayed mesmerized with their work. It's a group of illustrators that created a lot of clothes and decorations for home, and other stuffs, with illustrations of some fairy tales or some well know portuguese personalities as Fernando Pessoa. Check their page, I garanti you, you won't be indiferent. If you have a child and you are decoration his bedroom they have the most lovely things.
