CHRISTMAS BAKING TIME

Me and my husband had a fantastic night: we decided to bake something together. It was lovely. We prepared Christmas cookies to eat with some cinammon tea or caramel coffee.

BEST ALLIES AGAINST CHILLY TEMPERATURE

I've been on turnè in the north of Italy the past weekend. This is the situation we have found on the road: snow storms, polar winds, and chilly temperatures.











These are my best allies when it's so cold, but it's not possible to stay at home by the fireplace...

THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE

Do you know the tale from Oscar Wilde "the Nightingale and the Rose"? If you don't, my suggestion is to read it. It's one of the most poetic, heart-breaking and elevating tale ever. I read it yesterday for the fifth time I guess.
  " So the Nightingale pressed closer against the thorn, and louder and louder grew her song, for she sang of the birth of passion in the soul of a man and a maid" 

When I saw these earings I couldn't avoid thinking about that nightingale and her heart...
 You can find these beautiful earings on Etsy

WINTER NIGHTS IN FRONT OF A FIREPLACE

We should go back to our grandmothers' forgotten customs such as sitting by the fireplace during winter nights knitting. It's one of those things I would like to learn. But times have changed so: let's knit but let's make something fashion, and let's be trained by a design master. I love the knit kit from Kenzo!



With this kit it's possible to make or a scarf or a waistcoat, it's up to your skill, which anyway will be guided step by step.
I think it's genious: taking inspiration from old customs and dressing them up for fashion (victim) girls. Can't wait to buy a rocking chair and spending the rest of the winter knitting.

Stay knitting

GIFT MARKET ON A WINTER DAY

One of the things I love the most is when  a day turns out to be unforgettable and special in an easy way.
Yesterday we menage to be free, and to spend the day together. We decided to go for a walk in Perugia, the city where we live.
In Perugia every Christmas time it's held a "Mercatino delle Strenne", which means a Christmas gifts market. It was raining, it was cold, but our hearts were so warm and happy.
