Flea market

I love flea markets wrapped around holidays with triple dozes of toys.
And finally found a Nutcracker!

May you spend a Very Happy Christmas!

The Giant Apology

You know, most of the times Koreans use a pun to make an apology.
They say 내 사과 받아주세요 {please accept my apology} with an apple in hands, playing in this way with the word사과 which means apology but also apple.
I always wanted to try this, although no one around me,
with the exception of my boyfriend,
understands its meaning, nevertheless I find it endearing and quirky.
This idea clears the sky for me, the apple of discord loses its mythological power and becomes a simple apple offered with a genuine heart of regret. It’s fuzzy precious.
The end of the year brought me a giant apple so that I can begin with an apology to myself first, for being too lazy, too ill, for pricking my fingers too much, for being a bad friend to me and to others, for not studying enough, for not reading enough, for being a bad sister, for not sewing enough, for not eating enough fruits, for not waking up early enough, for being too indecisive and too shy.
And an apology to you for selfishly eating the biggest apple I've ever seen all by myself.
Next year I am going to do better. It’s not a promise. It’s an apple.

Hidden addenda {Part II} - Renegade Craft Fair London

I'm a little late in talking about this but anyway, I am going to do it.
Renegade Craft Fair wasn't the craft fair I had in mind, it was even better.
Calm and crafty atmosphere with artists smiling and working all around you.
Incredible item presentation and quality.
It was "a best" weekend spent in London.
I came back home with a doll from ninon. With beautiful long legs, amazing orange boots with a ribbon on top and a fancy mint lace as a collar. Her name is Gloria-Jean Dupré, according to the tag Tania attached to her but guess what? I changed it. Don't get mad at me Tania!
I named her Caroline.
She now lives in my studio. I might give her a miniature self-portrait one day. She knows how to thread needles and constantly gives instructions to the other toys in my studio to keep quiet while I am at my busy working hours. She has become and indispensable presence here.

Sticker Diary {my password to intuitive worlds}

A few months ago I started a Sticker Diary in a petit moleskine I bought from fabulous artist Danny Brito.

I just felt like revealing a few pages.

Hidden addenda {Part I}

So it was London.
Long walks. Big red buses. Busy colorful markets. No rain. People, many people and their mysterious words. A craft fair. Lots of painful steps but who remembers those now. Tasty Korean and Japanese food. Our Italian room neighbors. Busy streets with busy people who keep saying sorry. Any amount of books. The serious yet playful museum atmosphere. Interminable tube tunnels. London is a fun friend to be with.
London is also a frightening one. Close your eyes once and it swallows you completely.
London can feel like home too, for 5 days.
It calls me back year after year but London is not my home.
You know the saying "home is where your heart is." I decided. London can have my tourist heart, completely for now but it will most probably have to share it later.

London trip

Everything is about London.
Well not quite but the next five days are going to be.
We are leaving tomorrow morning, going to visit Renegade Craft Fair London.
I'm so curious about it!!!
Happy to meet the artists and to, once again, explore London. There are still a lot of places I haven't seen yet.
I cannot wait to see myself thrown in the middle of the hectic streets of London.
We will be back on the 13th October.
Talk to you soon.

Couple necklaces *커플목걸이*

Getting into Korean culture.
Our personalized couple necklaces are finally here.
Many thanks to Specially for U.
감사합니다 비아 씨!
목걸이를 너무 좋아해요!

Our word is 웃어봐.
Google translates it as "lighten up" but I like to think of it as "try to laugh".
Going to wear it everyday.
To cure myself from pessimism.

How does your garden grow?

crop image

First of October.
I am longing for a soft weekend. Soft light. Soft thread. I have been crocheting for the last two days. Nothing big, golden yellow actually. I am not done yet, I might show you. Meanwhile, my fingers are sore. It's not my first time but who said crocheting is an easy thing to do?

I have been in a confused state of mind. I want to do so much at once that I end up doing nothing. I want to buy a sewing machine, I want to learn how to embroider and I want to learn how to design patterns for miniature crocheting, plus there is my passion for felt. Ahh, this spiderweb!!! How do you stay organized? I am really curious. How do you do it? I am a mess, everything has to come first.

The calm before the storm. Fools me every single time.

Deconstructing first impressions


Hello Stranger.
the world I am constanly creating is not about patience.
is not about counting stitches.
is not even about counting stars because I prefer stormy nights.
so that you know.

In which we celebrate with books

One week outdoor feat:
intensive reading,
hot summer days,
lots of people,
lots of water bottles
and finally,

We took the books outside, celebrating the days of our small town Arad.

how do you make gifs

This is what happens when the wind gets angry.

Found a wristwatch, measuring time from now on.

I haven't been able to sew a stitch for the last 7 days,
still tired but
I am looking forward to the next week.
