Kids playing - (Bitter)sweet scenario

In my impulsive attempt to avoid the plant from falling I dropped a big and heavy cactus on my left hand two months ago. We were enemies from that day one but then again I reconsidered and brought him back near my window so that at least he can take sunbaths. We are good friends now, he takes care of me and I take care of him. Really good friends. And he brings me lots of luck too.

So, out of the blue, today I present you a Sweet Scenario on a Piece of Dark Chocolate.

Savoir se taire

Tăcerea a fost privită întotdeauna ca o putere. Stăpânirea de sine a fost privită ca o virtute. Există însă puține împrejurări în care această virtute se manifestă mai bine decât în tăcere.

Duck = swan

...crede-mă că, o dată ce ai să fii prinsă de îndeletnicirea dumitale, n-or să te mai tulbure asemenea gânduri. Sunt inevitabile acum, când te afli la limita extremă a îndelungatei tale sihăstrii și când populezi lumea cu figuri urâcioase, despre care vei afla curând că sunt la fel de ireale ca și uriașii și căpcăunii din cărțile de basme ale copilăriei. Nimic nu mi se pare mai ciudat în viață decât faptul că orice lucru pare să-și piardă consistența de îndată ce ajungi să îl cunoști îndeaproape. Așa se va întampla și cu ceea ce ți se pare acum atât de înspăimântător.

...Uită trecutul! Ai să te simți mai bine fără el! Îți vorbesc deschis, dragă domnișoară, pentru că suntem prieteni, nu-i așa? Socotesc că ziua de azi este una din cele mai fericite din viața dumitale. Înseamnă sfârșitul unei epoci și începutul alteia noi.

Broken flight

When you break your own wings out of ignorance you see only a one way road: death of the spirit. 
Let it burn till the very end.
The new beginning will be a more stronger phoenix.

A real dream

{In which Larry is curious about what is that Alice actually saw in Wonderland}

* Oh well, there is no secret, same things happen here too... wait a minute... is this really Wonderland or did I end up in the back yard again? I wonder if I really am a sleepwalker... *

Moral: * life doesn't happen somewhere else *

Misfit dreamer

I am preparing a new collection called:

Messengers of Miss Illusion

*waiting for the birds that come at my window every spring and wake me up at an early hour*

The first piece is not a brooch but a trio garland, 3 little fellows dreaming of a story.

How to become a goldfish in 3 easy steps
*Guide for exotic fish*

1. Early morning, meet a friend.
2. Listen carefully to all his/her unspoken words while taking a sunbath.
3. Go home at the end of the day looking exactly like the goldfish you have become.

Simulated memories of a friendship

The troubled girl of the Everlasting Waiting

You never write,
And you never come for birthdays,
You have never existed but...
I will always wait for you.

Spring rain

On a spring day, from a distant sky, the rain whispers stories in my ear, stories of fancy drops on faces.

A shop update is coming tomorrow!

Printemps je t'aime

How can you not love French when you discover a wonder book like this one?
It's weird how books always come to you if you know how to wait for them. All these years, living what once I had thought as surreal, made me grow seeds of quiet phantasmagorias.
Books don't talk unless you look them in the eyes.

I'll never stay away from you, books and flowers.

Hedgehog stories in tiny polaroid photos

*Interview with Larry, the hedgehog of my imaginary world*

The adventurous story of a quite conceited hedgehog

1. When was the moment you realized you have a special talent?

When I was a little hedgehog and I found the flower of imagination and decided to plant her in my heart, from that moment I knew I am not a common hedgehog. I must confess I was a great sniffer back then and it's not for bragging that I say this but I believe the present me is even better, if not the best sniffer in my family. It's true I aged a spine or two but I am still invincible when it comes to precision.

2. What was the road to your Garden?

As I have already mentioned, one day I picked the flower of imagination in my heart and since I knew she is a very pretentious little fellow my biggest wish was to prevent her from wilting. In order to do that I had to find a way for her to adapt to my heartbeats, that is to movable land. I watched over her night after night not knowing how to do that. It was a really difficult time for me but I didn't want to give up, I kept searching for an answer and then... one day I came up with the best solution, I taught her roots a few dance steps and voilà... problem solved. Since then my nights have been peaceful, my flowers dance and I sleep.
By the time my flower turned into a small garden I knew I had a great mission to accomplish and so, every year since, I have been taking part in the "Absolute Garden of Illusion" competition.
It's a high-class competition with gardens of all kinds in which I have always succeeded to take home the first prize. But with such a glamorous and big nose like mine it's very difficult to fail, don't you think? Actually, there is no weed that can resist me. (laughs)

3. What is your secret key to success?

I am particularly famous for the fact that I created an ingenious way to recycle weeds, nothing is wasted in my garden. I use my spines to knit unique garments, the weeds are especially perfect for the animals that work underground. They are very durable and protect the skin from getting harmed, I even started an one-hedgehog company called "Greenspine".
I have recently moved to a new neighborhood and have a huge amount of neighbor rabbits around me so in the near future I plan to make knitted clothes for them too. I think it will be a very profitable business, I noticed how
rabbit families tend to be so numerous nowadays.

4. What advice would you give to a young hedgehog?

Keep calm and grow your spines just the way you like it, there is no wrong direction.
And, for the fancy ones, don't forget that too much perfume will freeze your nose, be careful with that.

Thank you so much Larry for letting me embrace you.

Tada! A small needed change.
Printed word for my pins.
This is how the back will look from now on but I will keep the stylized flower too. I wanted to belong to my pins more. ^^
And I am actually very content with the result.
What do you think?
