Hello Lovelies!

Today I want to share with you a book that holds a special place in my heart…it is on my shelves for quite some time now and I keep checking it day after day … It is the most beautiful decoration book I’ve ever seen (and I am not taking any money for saying that 🙂 hehe )

It is called : “Decorate” and I am sure some of you have heard about it…

It has the most beautiful pics and brilliant decorating  ideas (don’t know if you love decoration books but they are my favorite 🙂 )

It is the only decorating book that I adore from cover to cover…I’m crazy in love with every single page of it…

I bought it from a local book seller here but you can find it trough amazon here… (I think that the cover has been changed…I just noticed that when I searched for it on amazon to give you the link)

and the author have a lovely blog too… go take a peek (it really really worth a visit)

That’s everything for today…(It’s been quite some times that I wanted to share with you this lovely book , if I could I would shown you all the pages 🙂 )

See you next time for the big tadaaaaa day of my daughter Sarah’s Kaleidoscope blanket…Yes it is almost done (I’m crocheting right now the final border round) and it is, I have to admit, B E A U T I F U L :)) really really…

So, stay tuned 😉

Kisses to all!


P.S: For those who are asking about the GIANT Granny Challenge…Yes it is still going on and you can, of course, still join! There is no date limit for participating or for finishing the blanket! It is just a fun experience that we are all sharing together and you can post your pics here or here ! ciao ciaoooo

New wip :D:D

Good morning,

How’s everything today?

Yes, I know, I made a promise to myself to finish my MONSTER before beginning any new project…but I received some Japanese books and I could not resist trying one of the lovely patterns….

I can tell you one thing: The Japanese crochet books are FANTASTICALLY WONDERFULLY BEAUTIFUL (is that a sentence? :)) I knew this before, because some of you bought already, but when you have one in your hands it is a totally new magical crocheting experience…

and you will judge by yourself when I’ll show you some of the pages…

So, I began, a new cushion…

A Mexican cushion… That’s what my husband name it 🙂

…maybe because of the colors…

So, tell me, do you love the pattern? will it become a nice cushion?

I felt in love with this pattern and, the second I saw it, I began to crochet it:D:D

I took this pattern from this lovely book, I bought online from here.

Really really really if you love to make blankets, throws or even small projects I recommend this book…

I’m gonna show you some of the pages…yalla

This is a throw I will make for sure one day 🙂 (in the pic above) isn’t it beautiful?

So, what do you think?

Have a super tuesday!

How’s everything today?

Two days ago, I felt in love with a white lampshade, a very simple one but so charming with it’s round shaped bottom…I had to have it 🙂

I transformed it my way in my head before even I bought it … and on my way back home I was smiling and singing 🙂 (crazy woman, I know!)

So, I have to show it to you:


I adore the ball-shape-ceramic bottom:

and AFTER:

I took the pattern of these cute flowers from this lovely book that is a must-have ! I recommend it!

You can order a copy from here.

This is a close-up of the pattern 😉

I made it without round 5 which is a dc round 🙂 I am a lazy person…

Hope you liked my transformed new lampshade!

I am still working on my MONSTER but from time to time I love taking a break…

I am also making some paintings and it is really distressful ! I am enjoying it a lot, I’ll show you maybe something next time…

Have a happy happy happy week end!
