I wish I had enough time...

I wish I had enough time to:

*playing more with my pups
*reading books
*learning knitting and crochet with constancy
*editing my pictures
*sewing new clothes
*painting on canvas
*writing children's tales
*illustrate them
*make some quilled Xmas-tree decorations
I could go on forever...

It seems to be a very busy month this November.
My favorite month of the year.
The days are getting colder day by day and in the morning, the windows and the cars are covered in ice.

(Winter 2010-2011)

I'm working on some new Illustrations and walking a lot with my pups...
Reassembling pcs, eating tons of tangerines...
And so, my month seems so busy...


I'll be back soon... And in only 2 days my mate will be back.
I'm sorry he has to leave for a few time his sweetie...
That means I have to take care of him! :)

There is only one month before Xmas and I have a lot of stuff to do.
This Xmas will be a little poor... but I'll try to do some DIY little gifts for all of my loved ones
(and they are a lot!!!)...
I can't wait Xmas eve...In Italy is common to celebrate Christmas on 25 December but since I've german ancestry, we are accustomed to have a great dinner on 24!
The Dolomites all around are covered in snow (but not that much, only on hugh peaks). We are having a wonderful Fall and the weather here, is merciful. My thoughts are going to all the victims of the flooding and mudslides that are hitting the other regions of my loved Italy.
We are into very bad days here... But I don't want to talk about politics here, on my blog.
This place must be my virtual Island...
uncontaminated by negativity.


PS: My best Friend Gabriel is here, at home... And he will be there til the end of December.
I'm so happy :)

The Best Friend...

There's a lot of things that make me happy.
The rainy days (yes, rainy days!)
The Fall Season.
The smell of wet leaves.
My puppies jumping when I get home.
The Music.
Being with my Parents and laughin.
Talking with my Nick before sleeping.
The taste of sweetened fennel seeds.
The sparkling water when I've got fever.
I could go on forever.
But this evening I NEED to talk about my Friends.
I've always been a lonely girl.. or almost always and this led me to have few people around me, outside my family.
When I was a teenager I was sorrounded by people but very few of them where Friends. 
I suffered a lot due some bad friendships... I trusted too much of some people who just abused my love and patience. Such things still make me cry sometimes... I gave a lot... or too much.

But there are some Souls that were always sorrounding me like a warm embrace...
They are living very far from me... But they are here, every step of my way.

This is for you...
Maybe I said to you a thousand times that I love you from the bottom of my heart, but maybe I've never shown it to you.
I'm sorry I've never been the best Friend you deserve.
When you was here, I spent a lot of time crying on myself without seeing that you were right next to me.
I always taken the worst decision without listening your silent and respectful opinion.
You were here to dry my tears and not for saying you were right.
Thank you.

I remember today like light feathers the very bad days I had when I was in my early twenty...
I say like "feathers" because today the weight of these days seem so light, cause you were here...with me again.
You had my own needs but you could not count on me.
You've got a grip for both and after, you transformed the rot into gold.
Thank you for this...

I want to thank you for teaching me how to play guitar.
For teaching me English... You are the best teacher I could have.
Did you see today how I write? I'm sure my posts are full of mistakes...
But my "Eng" improves day by day.

Thank you for giving me all these CDs full of your music that you did also become my music...
Thank you for all the nights watching B-movies with Stephen Dorff or Juliette Lewis or David Bowie or Chapelle (whatever her name was!!!)...
But... I'm sorry... "Demonlovers" was awful.
And thank you so much for being always patient when I was in my "Roger Waters" mood.
Thank you for all the drawings, the written and the amazing phrases you wrote on every piece of sheet.
(But I can't forget the Chihuahua thing... Ahahaha!)
Thank you for catching on tape a lot of silly things with me (and Lumpi too). Sometimes I watch them and it feels like you were here.

Thank you for always being my brave best friend.
I'm proud to be your Friend.
Thank you for the "ma sono piccolissimi!" thing.
You are tiny, skinny and cute but I don't know anyone as brave as you...
The World is in your hands...
I love listening to your tales about your travels... When you talk about them I feel like you brought a piece of me with you.
And I love reading your novels. I miss them...
You have the power to create images.
And delicious japan food....

Thank you for having loved my Lumpi... and for sharing with me my mourning.
She loved you so much and you know she had such a temper...
She loved very few people and you were the only one outside my family.
My wary fat black pup...
I miss her every day and I know you miss her too.
Thank you.

And thank you for having the best boyfriend you could find on the earth.
You have a special person to your side, because you are special.
Special people are living only with special people.
I love that you two have become one because when I think about you I think about Matthias too.
And now I've got a beautiful brand new Friend!

I love you Matthias for being so funny... For being so tenderhearted and sensibile...
I love the way you talk in Italian, your humor, your being that caustic when you talk about Droghellos...
I love the Eau de Parfum you wear (it fits on you like it was made for you) and your collages.
Your incredibile comparisons...
I love the way you love Babi and for being that perfect with him!

Thank you for these wonderful days in Austria... and for the delicious dinners.
You saved me, last August (August? But... wait... was yesterday!!!)
I miss you so much, everyday... but you know what I mean when I say "you are here right now!".

We had very special times togheter mate.
And I am sure that we still have a lot!

So, dear Babi...

A huge hug to you and Matthias!
I Love you guys!

A brand new Illustration!

I think it's the weather...
But today smells like Christmas!
So, I had the whole afternoon for doing my stuff...
I did an Illustration for a special girl (be sure to follow her blog... it's AMAZING!).
I'm very happy she liked my little gift... and I'm so honoured that she posted the illustration on her blog!
(Thank you!)

Then I did a brand new Illustration.
I call it:
"Early Snowfall"

I started a new project...
I think a bone in my left hand is broken and it hurts like hell.
I hope tomorrow I'll have enough time for doing (or starting) new works...
My last week was very busy and so I had to put my blog aside... and so I had to do the same thing with my
Etsy Shop Project.
Well. This is "the thing".
I hope you'll like it!

Have a bright day World!

New Router!!! A little journey and... a new project.

I just came home! :)
I went with my lovely Nick to Rome and to the Republic of San Marino. We had nice time, nice food, nice evenings... So, this was a very little journey... Hit and run... I drove so so so much. I love driving, expecially when I'm alone or with a silent sweet company like my Boyfriend. We are twin souls and we don't need always to talk for being satisfied...
The Republic of San Marino wasn't in our project and we went in Rome only for doing some bureaucracy... Then when we were on the road I asked him if we was in the mood for a "little" detour. And he says "YES!".
Awww. I love that he never backs down in front of the unespected proposals...
Thank you for being so adventurous!


And I finally got my new ROUTER!!!

I can upload a lot of pictures... and surfing faster!
These are pictures of our wonderful Fall season.
I love living here.

Today is a great day.
Today we had an idea... 
We have a great project about our life.
Living among/with/in the Nature is something that we're sure, will make us happy and so
we decided to become a weird kind of farmers :)
We're young enough.
Strong enough.
Enthusiastic enough... and 
we have enough very good ideas!
This is something that makes me happy, thinking about a new great project of life.
Full of Animals, Plants, Traditions, Diy, Creativity...
Thank you Mother Nature for inspiring me that much, every day...

So, these are my pictures...
I hope you'll like it!!!

 I love you Nicola... You're the best thing about me
And I love that you love my puppies like they were your puppies...
They are OUR babies now...

I want to thank my new followers! You're so kind! Thank you very very much! <3

Fall, oh Fall...

I was into very busy days...
...and so neglected my blog! :(
But I had pretty fun taking pictures outside...
The Fall is now at his peak even in the morning the streets are wet and almost frozen...

I want to share my pics with you... But due to some internet connection problems I can't share all of them.
Friday I'll have my new router and so I'll be able to upload more of them.
I'm very happy about those pictures. I had a wonderful afternoon...
I brought home lots of acorns and buckeyes...
Fall in the Alps it's something unforgettable! <3

Today I'll leave and untill Friday I'll be in Rome with Nicola.
See you soon!
