When we build … let it not be for present delights nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think … that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor, and the wrought substance of them, See! This our fathers did for us! – John Ruskin
Breakfast and a good art book to enjoy and start the new August week!

“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.”
― Beatrix Potter
”The bee’s life is like a magic well: the more you draw from it, the more it fills with water” – Karl von Frisch

A fork is expression of the journey that goes from history to art, through gastronomy. So, the object of narration is also means of encounter among cultures, symphonies of sounds and natural light.
Eine Gabel ist Ausdruck der Reise von der Geschichte, über die Gastronomie, bis zur Kunst. So, ist das Objekt der Erzählung auch Mittel der Begegnung aus Kulturen, Sinfonien von Klängen und natürlichem Licht.

March just began and we started the weekend by painting a cute little wise squirrel. He sits peacefully on a log of tree in a field of rapeseed. Indeed, even though he looks in a relaxed mood for enjoying the weekend, he seems very interested in the subject of his reading. Very inspiring, isn’t he? <3

Hallo! We wish a wonderful 2019 year to everybody!
We heartly thanks everybody and wish Merry Christmas holidays!
Christmas is in the air and we are thinking about welcoming family and friends in our homes, around the table, enjoying soft atmospheres, pleasant conversations and delicious food. At this proper, have you alreday thought about particular table decorations for the special occasion? Any detail can work to make a great success of your dinner or lunch with your guests.
Nature is always a fantastic source of inspiration and few, genuine elements can decor the table with simplicity and elegance. During this third Advent, I enjoyed carving hearts of different sizes from pulpy red peppers. It took me only few minutes. Then, I made little sticks of carrot (about 4 cm each), in order to shape the pistil, and cut round discs of carrot. I used long toothpicks for fixing the hearts of sweet red pepper to a floral foam: a little carrot disc was to secure on the back side of the heart, while the little stick took place on the center of the right side of the heart. Indeed, as the work went on, the little hearts of red pepper looked like beautiful flowers of Anthuriums. I finished by adding different shades of green all around the bouquet, a couple of branches of Aquifoliaceae and fixed a candle in the middle of the decoration. I hope you like the floral idea for your Christmas table and you will enjoy trying to make your own bouquet with sweet red peppers.
Good morning, after Easter holidays we are back to work.
Wishing everybody a good day!
