Good old times

Sunday morning, beautiful sunny day and it´s almost Autumn down here but it still feels like summer, the idea of staying home was great but going out somewhere with the kids sounded even better so we decided to go to São Paulo city and a very great spot was MASP , one of the most important art museum of this town and under its building there is the Antique Fair that I used to go when I was a teenager.

We could see so many interesting things and I loved this giraffe´s bag, so cute! And then, look at this woman´s outfit, doesn´t she look amazing? Well , let me explain this to you guys, there was some Clowns´ Parade at Paulista Avenue and I ´m sure she was part of it!

Look now at this amazing old toy, for Disney character lovers!

When I was born my dad was working at a toy´s factory called Metalma and there they used to make this kind of metal toys , this brought me some great memories of my childhood.

And my daughter was now looking at these "vintage" toys!

These ones reminds me my older brothers!

Old cars, trains and many metal stuff
This old gramophone is something! It still works out and the sound is amazing!

On the other side of the street we could see the craft fair and we took a quick walk because Camila was a little tired because she woke up very early this morning. There were whimsical decoration pieces like these colorful baloons!

And talented painters with dramatic colors, these are Ypê flowers paintings , they are very common in Brazil and I love the yellow ones that are amazingly beautiful!
And this was my favorite one: Trains and Sunflowers! I love them both and this painter is so very talented, too, don´t you think?
So, after a very busy week, this quick tour to São Paulo city was quite comforting for me and my family for the moments we spent together. This was such a perfect Sunday!

Wishing you all a week of joy and happiness with much love!!
