Does anybody else wish they could bottle up these long hot summer days and save a few for January?
.
Mr CG hosted a friends stag do at our house this weekend whilst I escaped with the kids and had fun camping in the garden of my friend @iron_lamb The ‘stags’ were under strict instructions to only wee in our compost heap, with all this dry weather it probably needs watering! .

"And the raindrops kept falling like the sweetest music
leaving tears on the glass,
which is what music does to me
most of the time
but silence too. and rain."

it is raining and I am holding a brush in my hand, listening to the sound of a summer storm... Happy as I could be ❤ I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! 💕

[All you need is love]
Già e a volte ce ne dimentichiamo!
Basterebbe una carezza su una spalla, un messaggio di buon onomastico (come quelli di oggi) o un <ciao> per strada; tutto diventerebbe più leggero e piacevole.
Io inizio dal <ciao>. Tu?
⠀⠀
#baletter for all of us, for a good sunday.

The waiting game.
The moment when you hope for your newly planted seeds to grow.
You see nothing. Yet you must keep nourishing the nothing. 
And slowly, gradually, graciously, you'll see a miracle happen.

Il gioco dell'attesa.
Il momento in cui speri di veder fiorire i semi che hai piantato.
Non vedi nulla. Ma devi continuare a nutrire quel nulla.
E piano piano, con gradualità e grazia, vedrai compiersi un miracolo.

Surprises and daily joy from my garden
Surprises and daily joy from my garden
As I walked past this house everyone was chatting together, I loved how the house framed the people in it - so I stopped to take a photo.

As I started to frame the shot the occupants turned around and smiled and children’s cheeky faces suddenly appeared through the second floor window.

Walk like an Egyptian; then sit down somewhere. 
Happy Sunday!
Walk like an Egyptian; then sit down somewhere. Happy Sunday!
Happy Sunday, all ♡

The heat broke our sunflower ... The other day when we got back from the beach it was hanging limp and there was no way of saving it. So I took it inside and put it in my fab Olle Alberius 'Sarek' vase. Hard to imagine it was taller than me when you see Greta with it here now 😔 Fingers crossed, perhaps the flower will come out ... What do you think,  will it survive indoors?

Goedemorgen!!!! Heerlijk buiten genieten van het wat “frissere” weer.  Stukje zwarte bonen brownie erbij, heerlijk. Gelukkig weer meer mobiel dan gister, gaat de goede kant op! Fijne zondag! // Godmorgen på denne skønne søndag! Nyder solen, skygge, cappuccino og sorte bønne kage efter opskriften af @louisalorang i vores have. Mit fod er lidt bedre end i går, jeg gå lidt mere i have og hjem. Dejlig søndag! // Goodmorning Sunday! Enjoying the sun, shadow, cappuccino and a last piece of the black bean brownie in our garden. Ankle is a bit better than yesterday so bit more walking around in our garden and home.  Lovely Sunday! //

Ожидать, ждать так мучительно! Если бы все важные события случались разом, без временного интервала, периода, в который мы их ожидаем, жизнь была бы значительно легче. Мучительность ожидания - отвратительная штука.

A wise man once said: ‘He who would learn to fly, one day, must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying....’ True dat.

When a child is born it feels overwhelming — the days seem to march on and the responsibility on a new parent is huge and daunting. But before you know it, almost in the blink of an eye, they’re walking, talking, reading and writing.

My two little man-cubs have been on such a journey this year. They toddled into their reception class, last September, looking way too young to be starting school; but ran out on Friday full of confidence and a head taller.

I wasn’t going to post this pic today. I’d kind of decided to wait a couple of weeks, as it’s just a couple of days since I posted the boys in their pirate ship 🚢 
But — given the prompt from Instagram this week is #whplookup — today seems like as good a time as any!

This photo perfectly illustrates this year in the life of my little sons. It’s the year that they learnt to fly without their daddy and me. 
Thanks @fatface #ad for kitting the boys out in lovely clothes to wear on their adventures!

And thanks too to my lovely friend Anne @anneworlephotography for managing to capture a little bit of magic.

Happy Sunday folks! 🎈

Just because something goes wrong doesn't mean you don't deserve for things to go right ✨
.
I've had a tough couple of weeks so yesterday, I treated myself to a bit of retail therapy and it really made all the difference. So if something is going right for you now, take a step away from it and I promise you'll come back stronger 🙌
.
P.S Wishing you a wonderful Sunday! 💚

The best Sundays start with baking, in my humble, personal and totally unscientific opinion.

I was walking through a small rural village in Nepal when I came across this girl.
She was standing by a river, peacefully looking out towards it. As I raised my camera to my eye, she suddenly turned and looked towards the sky.
I am not sure what caused this quick movement, but I captured her as she looked up and something about the expression on her face really drew me into this photo.

Do you sometimes feel like LIFE is a race, or a competition?… I’m here to remind you that it’s not. Your life is an experience to celebrate. Enjoy every moment as much as you can, and don’t worry, it’s all going to work out just fine. Don’t go too fast. Don’t rush to “get there”… There is no “there”. All you have is now. Right now. That’s it. So you might as well slow down and soak up every single moment. Really be present and allow your senses to take it all in. 
Sometimes it’s important to roll up your sleeves, get focused and get busy working on reaching your goals. But other times it’s essential to take time off and make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing what cake to eat or which book to read when you kick up your feet and relax. You’ve earned it. You should be proud of yourself💁🏻‍♀️💗 Enjoy your Sunday lovelies 💫😘and let me know what’s your favorite way to re-charge and celebrate 🎉 life?

And if you asked me after a drink or three, I’d tell you I’d like to spend more than just the summer with him. I’d gulp the entire glass and confess that yes, hours feel like minutes and time is too quick to love him in moments, in fragments, here and there. I’d like to have it all but let’s start with summer. Everything in my life has always and will always start in the summer. This is another beginning and one I’d rather not think about ending

Have a great evening ❤.

Water your mind with creativity and new ideas every day. (and yes, that is a little woman‘s head planted with succulents 🌱)
——
And because of that I might stop posting every day for a little while, to refill my creative spirits. I just feel like I don’t really have a path anymore on which I‘m walking right now, regarding my bookstagram and I want to find my way back to it. ☀️
I‘ll still be active, I just might change some things up (maybe), but I‘ll always let you know how (just as I‘m telling you right now 🙈)
Have you ever felt like you still want to do something, but you just can’t see the point of it anymore? (it’s not completely like that for me but kinda) 🌲

I know I keep going on about this book (and I haven’t even finished it yet) but it is REALLY resonating with me and has come at the perfect time ✨ what was the last book that resonated with you?

Once again I want to raise the topic of the Book Hating.
⠀
Don’t scold the book! That’s my rule.
⠀
I’m not saying my rule is your rule, but I want to explain why I feel appalled when readers express the dissatisfaction with the book in such an intense way that I want to find that poor fellow who wrote it and apologize for all the rude readers in the world. In my opinion, it’s unacceptable.
⠀
Anyway, how do you manage even fully to read the book if you don’t like it? It’s not that you enjoyed it all the time while reading and then suddenly in the very end you’ve become convinced it’s crap. Why reading something that doesn’t feel like yours? Put it aside and take another brilliant story and enjoy it.
⠀
Yes, I read stories that disappoint me. But I’m sure that I’m not allowed to hate what I read as I’m not an expert in writing. You must understand that before you lay your hands on any book, it passes through so many stages of proofreading and approvals by experts, publishers, managers, adepts and so on and so forth, that neither you nor I can claim we are better experts.
⠀
I’m definitely not entitled to express my disapproval not thinking about the consequences as many people read my posts, follow my thoughts and unfortunately some of them measure the bookish world according to my reviews and opinion. I want to stress MY OPINION ON THE BOOK IS MY ONLY. You can’t just take it and say: If she likes it then I’ll like it too. It doesn’t work like that. But exactly this borrowing of my attitude makes me think twice before I start criticize and label a work of literature with hatred.
⠀
And I am ready to advocate each and every book that evokes being scolded and decried because the book itself is a declaration of someone's imagination and no one has the right to belittle the fantasy.

You must understand that before you lay your hands on any book, it passes through so many stages of proofreading and approvals by experts, publishers, managers, adepts and so on and so forth, that neither you nor I can claim we are better experts. ⠀ I’m definitely not entitled to express my disapproval not thinking about the consequences as many people read my posts, follow my thoughts and unfortunately some of them measure the bookish world according to my reviews and opinion. I want to stress MY OPINION ON THE BOOK IS MY ONLY. You can’t just take it and say: If she likes it then I’ll like it too. It doesn’t work like that. But exactly this borrowing of my attitude makes me think twice before I start criticize and label a work of literature with hatred. ⠀ And I am ready to advocate each and every book that evokes being scolded and decried because the book itself is a declaration of someone's imagination and no one has the right to belittle the fantasy. ⠀ #justsaying  #alisareads

HU: Boldogságom színhelye 💚 Ez az “Inhale confidence, exhale doubt” illusztráció @radics_aniko_illusztraciok munkája. Ideiglenesen helyeztem az ablakpárkányra, de annyira szeretem, hogy elalvás előtt, ébredés után és jógázás közben ezt látom, valószínűleg ez lesz a végleges helye.

EN: My happy place 💚 This “Inhale confidence, exhale doubt” illustration is the work of art of @radics_aniko_illusztraciok . I put it on the windowsill temporarily, but I love that I can see it before going to sleep, after waking up or while doing yoga, so I think it will stay there.

[AD] Sam and I got up super early today to have a breakfast picnic before the day got too hot. My @verivalbio orange granola was as delicious as ever. Then we hopped on a train heading down South. The train ride was hotter than hell so we had to have a post-train nap to recover. Looking forward to venturing to the Temple of Seitan for dinner! What have you been up to today? #verival #verivalmornings #wherevhavebreakfast

I simply want to share a photograph - not a particularly good one - that I was happy taking. I was strong and curious and content and hopeful and inspired and myself. The hydrangea heads were the size of tureens and abundant in their loveliness.

Holiday breakfast in the beautiful garden cafe in Wedding 🌿🌳 A place in a recently renovated old crematorium.
This chocolate cake and the avocado toast were just excellent!

ベルリンのヴェディングにあるガーデンカフェでブランチ。ここはベルリンらしいユニークな場所で、昔の火葬場をリノベしてカフェやコンサートホール、オフィスとして利用しています。
ケーキとアボカドトーストを食べたんですが、美味しかった!前回日本の友人と一緒に来た時、飲み物しか頼まなかったのを激しく後悔。
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
今日はテクノのイベントもあるみたいで、いい雰囲気です。

Waiting for thunder. ‘Waiting is erotic,’ Irene likes to point out.

I’ve lived in yoga tops and flowy pants, swapping them for jeans and a white tee when going places where other people might be. I’ve travelled far with authors of all sorts, and a little closer with family. I’ve swum in lakes, seas and swimming pools, and had saunas in several towns. I’ve had lunches in great little places and discovered my new favorite restaurant in a neighboring town. I’ve stayed up late, and gotten up early, and had long conversations with relatives and friends. I’ve decided it’s ok to live in white tees and oversized sweaters and jeans forever, with chipped nail polish and messy hair. I’ve gotten new armchairs for free and scored plenty at the flea market. And finally, finally I’ve realized we really don’t need to cater to anyone’s pleasure but our own.

It’s good to be back. How have you been this summer, so far?

Happy Saturday,  friends ♡

I haven't forgot, it just took me a while, to show you more of those beautiful antique Rörstrand flower plates I salvaged. This is 'gullviva' or cowslip. Isn't she pretty?! And I realised I already had those old white gilt edged plates from Germany and Czechoslovakia which are gorgeous together with her, don't you agree?! The six plates will be in the shop later this weekend. But if you're interested in buying them now just DM me (there is a chance that I'll keep them for myself....). You'll find the link to the shop in my bio.

I just loved that movie with Diane Lane! There is just something about sunflowers that always make me think of Tuscany. Let’s all go and meet up there this weekend!! 🙌💛🌻🌻

I would add the Sun to that!!!
On a crazier note when I was setting up this still the shutter fell over next to the whole vase of flowers that went tumbling to floor! Glass water and flowers everywhere!! 🤦‍♀️
