{this moment}

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Inspired by Amanda Soule

Sunday at home

Have I ever told you about my postcard swap?
OK, I must say that it´s so entertaining and fun for many reasons and since I love handwriting this was something that I always wanted to do, swapping postcards with people all over the world!

I receive 4 to 6 postcards each month because I am a beginner in this Postcrossing group and I can send randomly to someone in the planet the same quantity .
You can also take a peek on POSTCROSSING website and check out how interesting it is!!

The great thing is that I can list all my preferences and then I receive the most interesting postcards according to it , like these ones that I really love!

:: COFFEE ::

:: BEAUTIFUL STAMPS :: ( that could be part of another collection, should I start it?)




There is a blog about Postcrossing and many schools around the world introduced to their students to practice English writing through this activity so they can also learn different culture, tradition, people , they write as a group or individuals and I ´ve already sent to two schools in Germany.
This is a very cheap and easy way to do good things like writing to someone who is ill like this one where many postcrossers got in!

My little one loves to check out the mail box and when she gets one we sit together and I read and show her the stamp, the photograph and we look at the map to see the location from where it came from.

Wishing you a very relaxing Sunday with your loved ones and a great week to all of you!!! Thank you for stopping here, leaving your kind comments!!!

Welcome November!

This is absolutely cute and beautiful, isn´t it?
A very good friend of mine made it ( patiently) by herself to my little baby who is a BOY!!! By the time she was making it, she didn´t know so she chose pretty colors that could be used by a girl or a boy. And it turned out so beautiful! Thank you , CELIA!

A closer detail of the patchwork baby bed cover... It´s a lovely blue star, isnt´it?

And... our home was decorated by pumpkins and orange colors here and there for the Halloween

We love Halloween parties but unfortunately we do not celebrate that much in our country... But the spirit of this season is everywhere in our home!!!

I hope you had a great Halloween celebration and I wish you a week full of joy and inspiration! thank you for stopping by!!!
