On Mother’s Day

On Mother’s Day in Italy, I have chosen this picture I took some time ago for celebrating and dedicating it to all women and Mothers in the world, because the beauty in their eyes will never fade and will be always in the heart of their own children.

Im Garten

Frühlingsatmosphäre

Der Frühling

Die Sonne glänzt, es blühen die Gefilde,
Die Tage kommen blütenreich und milde,
Der Abend blüht hinzu, und helle Tage gehen
Vom Himmel abwärts, wo die Tag entstehen.

Das Jahr erscheint mit seinen Zeiten
Wie eine Pracht, wo Feste sich verbreiten,
Der Menschen Tätigkeit beginnt mit neuem Ziele,
So sind die Zeichen in der Welt, der Wunder viele.
Friedrich Hölderlin

Ein gutes Wochenende euch allen <3

Hibiscus flowers in January

hibiscus

“I was for a while troubled with the haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade—the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not know then that it was no transitory blossom, but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Sketching a Reindeer on the Hill

uppe på kullen

“Therefore am I still / A lover of the meadows and the woods, / And mountains; and of all that we behold / From this green earth; of all the mighty world / Of eye and ear, both what they half create / And what perceive; well pleased to recognize / In nature and the language of the sense, / The anchor of my purest thoughts, the nurse/ The guide, the guardian of my heart, and soul / Of all my moral being.” ― William Wordsworth

Wishing a good weekend to everybody!

Välkommen höst!

“Hösten är den andra våren när varje löv är en blomma.” – Albert Camus

The good fragrance of bread at Skansen

Skansen, Bageri

From my sketchbook.

This little bakery is a familiar place for those, who enjoy a walk in the open air at Skansen. This cosy corner is where to find crisp bread, soft golden croissants and typical fragranced buns. Add a warm cup of coffee and enjoy nature in Skansen!

Shades of blue

Plumbago

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

Little Stars in the Sky

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. – Stephen Hopkins

Small bouquets of flowers

Small bouquets of flowers tell their poetry through different art styles on this Sunday afternoon. According to Peter Rosegger’s quote: ”the flower lives and loves and talks a wonderful language”. Do you agree with it? Enjoy a good start of the new week, everybody!

In the Garden

A fork is expression of the journey that goes from history to art, through gastronomy.

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.

A cute little wise squirrel in a rapeseed field

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

Decor your Christmas table with a bouquet of red peppers.

Bouquet made of red peppers for the Christmas table
Bouquet made of red peppers for the Christmas table

   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.
