I have been in Paris for 4 days  heading to Rio de Janeiro tonight both are extraordinary cities but still I miss my husband. I miss his smile, his touch, his kisses, his tenderness and passion ...after 9 years of marriage i should be more independent but i am not and don't plan to be. All my female friends are the same i guess it runs on our genes then for the fortunates ones came the unconditional love for their children but i acknowledge everyday how women's life are bound to their man. A friend was telling me that she should be more assertive, that she should have more rules...which i replied that a woman in love function with her heart not her mental.
Nothing prevails the emotion of being connected, being united, feeling whole.
I will drink a caipirinha to love
Have a good week end

Online shop...Etsy

Eureka! I have open my Etsy shop come and visit me...
I choose the banner above for my shop so i'll know my grandmother and mother will keep an eye on me and will certainly show me the way with their inner intuition and wisdom.
Hope you'll like it. My first choice  is the  Once upon a time album who is very unique and special.

I want to thank  my artfriend Catherine Whalen Mitchel who deeply encouraged me to go for it! I know i have a true connection with the United States and my artfriends.
A new adventure begins...I am very enthusiastic about it. Wish me luck
Have a good week

I love my bed...

Arrived  from Mumbai this morning ... with the sense of longing and wanting to come back soon. Either you like or dislike India i don't get to see much in between...Just finished this superb book by Javier Moro the non authorized biography of Sonia Gandhi. What an extraordinary destiny! This italian woman coudn't envisioned the life that was ahead of her when she falled  in love with Rajiv Gandhi back in the sixties. She was eighteen and fought for her love against the will of her father who wasn't that happy to have her daughter to depart from distant India even to married a prince. The book is superbly written and we get to see both the life of Sonia and Rajiv and the one of Indira Gandhi. Not to be missed...
Check also on Katie Kendrick's blog joyouslybecoming.typepad.com her new mixed media video. I absolutely love it, can't wait for tomorrow to try her methods. She is so talented i am very blessed to know her.
Have a good week-end
I will plenty of ideas popping in....

Treasure heart album

 Just finished my Secret album that i am very found of. Don't know for you but my last work is always my favorite...till the next one. I am preparing my Etsy Shop trying to understand how it works and am receiving everyday their newsletter which is quite interesting. They are very structured and helpful. 
 Questions they suggested us to answer:
Why are you doing what you do?
Why do you pursue it?
Why do you think you can succeed?
What do you want to be known for, talked about?...Now is your turn to do the homeworks!
 I am "dating" Etsy shop for over a year now but haven't sense is the right time yet to plunge, maybe because i'm afraid of the extra work and how will i manage it all? But as time passes by i'm getting more and more excited with the whole idea... they are very challenging which i love
I realized that i value family above all things, within our family we are deeply loved, encouraged and stimulated and my treasure hearts albums are just that a reminder, a totem of who we are where we come from and where we want to go. My goal when creating is enlightening our past, bringing back good memories of this special recipe made by grandmother, when opening this little box Mom's perfume Shalimar filling the room, rereading my love letters with the same joy... having our own special and unique Life within the album and keeping it up with new photos new insights .....

Have you seen "the King's speech"? What an extraordinary movie very authentic and touching, hope Colin Firth will receive the Oscar. He sure deserves it!
 Raining a lot, feels like a good afternoon under the wool plaid with a huge book and plenty of tea is expecting me, cool....
Have a good sunday

Questo mi piace...

I completely fell in love with Rome...Like Venezia it's a magical city where beauty lies in every corner, every fountain, every church... San Pietro Coloseo Circus Massimo appia Antica via del Condotti Palazzo Farnese ... gelati tiramisu ristretto con panna montata... and the sales are awesome!
Hopefully i will return...i did send two cents at Trevi Fontain, one for a special wish and the other one to come back...let's see if the tradition is right?
Have a good week-end
Grazie tanto mille
