Here and there

The sounds of the children playing, laughing, climbing stairs, jumping and making noise makes me feel so alive and so amazed and blessed. They live the present and that´s what matters.

Yesterday I found myself staring at them and I felt the happiness of being there, with them, it was a special moment that we all shared ...



Last week, at home: piles of dishes and clothes were waiting for me every day...


and then something good happened when I went to visit my friend and she accepted some of my creations to be sold at her shop


a world of magic and creativity, imagination and interesting toys ...


It´s so good to be home in a quiet corner and look at little things that we collected after years from rocks, Christmas crafts, swaps , anything ... so many stories to tell and lots of joy!


In the morning the silence inspires me to take some pictures , randomly , here and there . I try to capture the beauty of the simple things around my home...


The baby quilt that finally has been finished and sent to a beautiful new baby girl...



and back into the living room , into the comfort of the Christmas season that has so many beautiful meanings for me.
This Christmas tree brings me lots of memories : special moments, friendship, family meetings , ornaments made by close friends... I really love this time of the year! And I hope you have some peaceful moment for yourself, for your family and friends.
