joy of a new life

Each and every day my belly is growing!!! I had forgotten how it was , the only thing that bothers me now is at sleeping time , I´ve got no position to do so...

Anyways... I am so very excited and happy for this little boy that´s growing here inside and I´ve been making some things for him.

I went to my old books and magazines to take a look and I found out this pretty little banner that I made in 2 hours ( the time I spend choosing fabrics are the longest!) and finally I came up with this blue one!! It´s by Alicia Paulson ´s book and I really adore her and her creations!
Some friends had made beautiful handmade things for my baby and I am keeping all of these treasures in a small old fashioned trunk...

These onesies came from my Mom , pretty, hum? I like the pretty little alligators!

I guess I stopped sewing before going to Japan last month and now that I started making these banners I feel centered, something that keeps me healthy and focused... I needed that! It´s my second pregnancy but all those fears and doubts that comes with motherhood are back again...Plus , this strange feeling of the possibility of loving two children, will I love this one as much as I love my little girl???

I think it´s just a matter of time to get all the answers , right?

Wishing you all a joyful week with less rain , please...

Thank you for your patience!!!

What I like...

Fruits from the garden to make a really refreshing juice : Acerola Juice

The good old SUN after weeks of rainy days... It feels so good ...

Have a joyful week, my dear friends!!!

We went to visit a new place , a great tip from my blogger friend Shi , thank you dear friend! From our house it´s about 45 minutes by car and we were surprised for the good food, lots of things for kids to do like poney riding, a lake, mini zoo and playground. The next time we will take Camila ( today she went out to the beach with my brother).
This first picture is a traditional Brazilian food, it was crunchy and sooo delicious!! Polenta frita , Pastel de Carne and Mandioquinha

For dessert I chose these yummies... Pineapple, strawberry and Romeu and Juliet sweet which is very typical here.

This is the restaurant...

The view from the restaurant where you can see the lake and the owner´s house

This is the entrance

The property has many kinds of animals everywhere...

And a cozy chair to get some rest after all those delicious food!

Wishing you a wonderful and joyful week!!! thank you for taking your time here.

Rearranging moments

It´s Summer here and it´s getting warmer each day with lots of rain, too... But rain is good, look at these green colors outside in our garden,

and the pink flowers , so gorgeous!

the very red acerola fruits that we can make delicious fresh juice from them! I just love looking at the contrast of green and red!

This week , since Camila is on school holidays, staying at home doing lots of things like organizing baby´s bedroom with me, cooking , playing inside and (when it´s not raining) outside the house, I thought she needed a good place to study this year.

So , we rearranged the top of the stairs where there´s a mezanino and now it looks like this, with a blue desk with drawers , a good chair and lots of space for her studying time.

She loved her new little studying corner and everyday she writes her diary up here. Maybe we need some bookcase , hmmm, maybe we´ll a quick visit at the flea market somewhere...

By the meantime, while Camila is staying at her uncle´s house I took a time to rearrange this coffee corner in the kitchen. It holds everything I need: a coffee machine that we LOVE, capsules, milk , coffee cups and it´s all set!
Would you like some coffee with me?

Well, have a seat and let´s have a great weekend!!!

Happy New Year!

Hi there!!!
Happy New Year to all of you , I want to share my life with you this year again and thank you for all the support , kind comments and love you´ve sent in this little corner of mine.

We are back home, in Brazil under a lot of rain but fresh, comfortable days in our cozy home eating "eda mame" , soy beans that we bought at the farmer´s market this Sunday.

It´s raining a lot but we found a small corner where we could make our private barbecue , some fish, shrimp and meat.

Messy corner, I would say, but full of happiness and joy to start this new year.

Wishing you all the joy , love and peace for the first week of the new year!!!
