I love the month of December & and I'm hoping this one will be filled with lots of days like this one - crisp, chilly mornings & cups of tea with friends ✨ I am still obsessed with this wreath which I put together from a beautiful kit gifted by @narcissus_flowers & @lifestoryedin - I've been feeling properly festive since it's arrival 🎄

It’s raining and the fog has settled in making this Friday a gloomy, wonderfully grey, and welcome day. Thankfully, little me perked up yesterday evening and was able to perform in her evening music program so it looks like she’ll be just fine for her birthday in a few days. Hallelujah. x Today is for painting a little brown box with stars and a moon, drinking tea by the gallon, and wishing all leaves would turn into skeleton leaves. x I’ve been thinking: do you think ‘mob mentality’ affects how to review a book? If you happen upon a review of a book or someone’s opinion do you think it colors your own opinion of the book once you read it? . . . . . #fog #leaf #skeleton #thatvelvetfeeling #cherishandrelish #hygge #openuptoautumn #thischarmingautumn #autumn #gothic #ofquietmoments #myeverydaymagic #cozyvibes #cosy #aesthetic #folkandstory #myseasonalstory #gowildlyandslow #quietinthewild #amomentofwonder #simpleandstill #slowlivingforlife #calmversation #thehappynow #myeverydaymagic

The forest trail a misty autumn morning. I got up at 5.30 am, brewed a cup of coffee in my parents kitchen and waited for the sun to start rising. As morning broke I took my basket and headed straight out into the woods. In the distant I heard a hunter training his new dogs how to track grouse, apart from that, all was still.

Gli ultimi alberi a spogliarsi sono sempre il gingko e il melograno, che forse non a caso in giardino sono l'uno accanto all'altro 🍂 Ragionando tra una pagina e l'altra su quale potesse essere il fatto curioso numero 6, proprio le foglie che cadono mi hanno fatto venire in mente una cosa che avevo dimenticato: il finale originale di #UnaDomenicaSenzaScarpe è andato perduto. Come era prospettabile, del resto, non tutte le dieci audiocassette superarono indenni il passare degli anni: quella che conteneva il finale si è letteralmente volatilizzata, e tuttora non sappiamo che fine abbia fatto 😅 così abbiamo riscritto il finale solo sulla base di quello che ricordavamo! Per fortuna che almeno la storia la conoscevamo molto bene 😆 E a voi è mai capitato di perdere qualcosa a cui tenevate e che non siete ancora mai riusciti a ritrovare? #gioiedinatale #thequietwinter Buon martedì! ❤ #favoledistagione #quietinthewild #semplicecomeunsorriso #myquietbeauty #gowildyandslow #folkandstory #seasonspoetry #embracingtheseasons #autumnvibes #dreaminginpictures #thehub_vintage #slowliving #coloratamalinconia #silenzicolorati #aseasonalshift #ricordamilautunno #autumnishere #doortomywonderland #alritmodellestagioni #bookstagram #hoquestacosaconlautunno

This oversized coat made from canvas with its lengthy sleeves is a comfortable addition to ones tweed jacket underneath. And it is an excellent windbreaker on the chilly mustard fields in December. Does anybody know the technical term for this type of jacket or coat? I got it second hand in a very good condition and loved the simplicity of its construction and material. Collar and cuffs are lined with brown corduroy while the body is lined with tartan flannel. ——————————————————————- #mustardflowers #mustardfield #mustardfields #tweedcap #flatcap #mensjacket #vintagemensjacket #mensvintagejacket #mensstyle #vintageootd #vintagemen #vintageman #vintagemens #vintagemensfashion #vintagemenstyle #mensvintage #mensvintagejacket #thesweetlifeunscripted #vintageinterior #thelifestylecollective #myeverydaymagic #distractionsandinspirations #smallmomentsofcalm #awakethelight #tinytinymoments #thatvelvetfeeling #folkandstory #slowlivingforlife #simpleandstill #chasinglight

{ Growing up we didn’t really do Christmas. We had our own version which usually just involved eating well, pyjamas and spending time with family! And that’s definitely a tradition I’m happy to continue. ⁣ ⁣ Last year, we decided we would only give the girls gifts that fit into their stockings, which would be opened on Christmas Eve. ⁣ ⁣ This year, I caved and got them a little chocolate advent by @divinechocolateuk (who are sold on @oxfamgb ) and I’m totally fine with it! The girls are really enjoying learning how to say merry Christmas in different languages (there’s a different country behind each door). ⁣ ⁣ But! Up in stories I tried to explain what I’m trying in lieu of a home made of advent calendar. I have always loved the way that those branch style homemade advent calendars look and really appreciate the nature of the smaller gifts or giving back of those advents for sure! ⁣ ⁣ However, stuck between trying to find a way to celebrate respectfully in our own way and basically always running out of time, I’ve never done one! ⁣ ⁣ So, a short cut I’m going to try out this year, is to use the stockings to hide little presents or activities/good deeds in them. Not each day!! But every few days just to keep them on their toes! ⁣ ⁣ Anyway, have a nose of my stories and let me know what you think of the sort of things I’ve found! ⁣ ⁣ If you’re in a mixed race family, how do you celebrate different traditions? If you’re Muslim, do you take part in Christmas somehow? Lemme know below! ⁣ ⁣ #seasonspoetry #embracingtheseasons #stylingtheseasons }

You walk past the same place each day. One day, you enter. It’s a church. A place of reflection and sentiment. You stop. You look up. And there it is: suspended from the ceiling, the most uncanny surprise. It’s hard to believe, yet it’s real. What does it mean? And why does it generate an overwhelming feeling of compassion? This is what episode 3 of the podcast is about, and it’s the one that I most enjoyed recording up to now. Connected to it, I’m launching a question, in my Stories, about the simplest, yet best sign of compassion you have experienced. Come help me add a bonus to this episode. This is your voice. SWIPE to hear more about the jumper and to see it, fashioned by its latest owner, this afternoon precisely. In the third picture, it’s hanging from the ceiling. Also: thank you. For listening and subscribing, but also for all the contributions and all the shoutouts to #24daysofgratitude. So beautiful, so overwhelmed. #mybeautifulstories_podcast #mybeautifulstories @arabelladorman

Can we please talk about how perfect these are? #ChristmasFolkArt #epicfaerytales ••••• Posted @withrepost@olga_valeska 🍎The little elves & gnomes of the christmas collection are online ! 🐿(Follow the link in my biography to shop the last ones!❤) ...Little gnomes also known as.. my best assistants in my atelier ! 🤗❤ It might sounds funny I know, but I actually believe in elves & gnomes.. 😊And I often give them a glass of milk and some gingerbreads on the window with a candle, on cold, snowy december nights 🕯🥛 It's obvious they exists: the proof is that I actually... AM a little gnome 🤗❤ Some can find them a bit naive.. but actually.. I like everything which is naive. 🌟 Because I'm somehow very naive too... Christmas is all about innocence, memories from childhood, tenderness, and simple joys... 🍭 And that's what I want to spread through this collection 🙏 Well dearies, I hope you will like them, you my beloved little elves ! 🍭 Thank you again so much for all your purchases and your love for this christmas 2019 collection! ❤ You know.. packing & sending your christmas presents is such a dream come true for a little Santa's elf like me... 🐿 I send much love to each one of you ❤ Xoxo Olga 🍎 . . . . . . . . 📸 Photography, handmade creations, art direction & edit: Olga Valeska 🦌 ________ #folkliving#folkandstory#folktale#folktales#ofwhimsicalmoments #asecondofwhimsey#olgavaleska#cherishandrelish#aseasonalyear#myseasonalstory#aseasonalshift#capturequiet#faeriemagazine #forest_of_twinkling_fireflies #folktales #thebeautyinautumn #christmasmagic #christmas #christmasiscoming #noticingmagic #folktale #myseasonalstory #thischarmingwinter #christmascountdown #christmaspresents #christmaslover #magicchristmas #magicalchristmas

✨Day 4✨Where else can I be found✨. Well this Saturday and Sunday I will be at the delightful craft event @blackthorpebarn in Suffolk. I definitely prefer selling my work out in the real world, where I get to meet people (I put it down to my market trader genes). I also have an Etsy shop and list dolls when I can.

They aren't very fond of getting their paws cold, these two, but they're still curious about the snow. You can see the signs of the very short adventure in their pawprints in the snow. Sometimes we need to be brave like my kitties and try the new, scary thing. I've tried coaching my fellow creatives these past weeks, and found it to be such a fun, inspiring and fullfilling experience. And I've seen my clients hestitate as they approach their new projects, unknown and scary, and I've seen them start to move forward through that fear. New experiences are almost always a little (or a lot) scary. We don't get around that. But we're allowed to be our own biggest supporters, give ourselves space and judge our first wobbly steps with kindness. Or better yet, not judge them at all but accept them just as they are. So here's to dipping your paw in the snow. Because who knows, you might just love it.❄

{English below} Gâteau au chocolat. Le seul et l'unique et pourtant tant de recettes existent ! Celui-ci n'était pas mauvais mais ce n'était pas mon préféré. Donc j'en ai fait un autre qui par contre s'est révélé tellement bon que je n'ai pas eu le temps de le photographier ! La pâtisserie, ou la quête d'une vie 😀 Chocolate cake. The one and only yet so many different recipes! This one tasted good but wasn't a keeper. So I made another one but this time it tasted so good I didn't have a chance to take a picture!

1, 2, or 3? . . This kiddo loves to 'read' in fact its the only time she sits still during the day. Most of the time she is racing around climbing to the highest point in the room. . We have her in gymnastics and honestly she has so much natural power. But she has a hard time focusing and doesn't care much for technique. She has been begging for ballet lessons but I think she needs a year or two to improve her focus. . . Same with school she has so much ability and often a desire but most of the time she isn't interested in sitting through an activity. I've never been much for unschooling but naturally my child needs it.

Zdjęcia trochę spóźnione, ale bardzo chciałam je tutaj mieć. Szkatułka babci i kolczyki, które dostałam od prababci na chrzciny. Dużo czasu minęło, zanim do nich dorosłam. Musiały przeczekać epokę biżuterii z drewnianych koralików, plastikowej tandety szalonych lat 2000, równie tandetnej biżuterii z tanich sieciówek, magicznych kamieni, czaszek i rzemyków okresu młodzieńczego buntu i wreszcie epokę srebra, które uważałam za najpiękniejsze. Teraz nie wyobrażam sobie siebie i swojego stylu bez delikatnej, złotej biżuterii i mam nadzieję, że tak już zostanie. Jak dla mnie nie ma nic bardziej ponadczasowego. A jak to wygląda u Was? ☺️ Ciekawostka: zdjęcia zrobiłam późnym latem u rodziców w ogrodzie.

(🇺🇸 caption in the comments) 🧵🔮 Nelle ultime settimane ho provato la sensazione di dovermi imporre una pausa. Mi sono resa conto che nell’ultimo anno ho creato tanti pezzi - tutti adatti a combaciare- a cui però non ho mai dato una direzione. Non sono molto brava a condividere ciò che faccio, custodisco con gelosia il mio quotidiano e le persone che amo. Ma vorrei partire da qualche elemento per mettere insieme quei pezzi e costruire la storia che d’ora in poi vi vorrei raccontare. Nonostante io sia riservata, alcuni sapranno che sono una persona molto creativa. Creo tutto da me in generale...ma soprattutto dipingo e ricamo. Altri sapranno che ho creato Cinnamoon che - prima di essere un blog, prima di essere un brand, prima di essere una parola - descriverei come un sentimento. Cinnamoon nasce dall’incontro di due parole: Cinnamon - cannella- e Moon- Luna. Mi sono concessa il vezzo di creare un’imperfezione che aggiunge valore. Di giocare con le parole e di dar vita ad un altro mondo: il mio. Quello legato al potere evocativo delle spezie, quello ipnotico della Luna. Altri ancora, amici di una vita, sapranno che da sempre sono legata al celtismo, sono cresciuta respirando la magia di Camelot, mi sono circondata di leggende e antiche storie, ho percorso sentieri non più ricordati. Mi sono sempre chiesta come potessi mettere insieme tutti questi elementi, per me fondamentali. E la risposta è arrivata con questo libro. Il mito e la magia del ricamo. Paradossalmente ho sempre avuto la risposta sotto al naso, eppure non l’avevo mai vista fino ad ora. Ho sempre saputo che filare, tessere e ricamare sono arti sacre, fortemente simboliche -basti pensare alle Norne, alle Parche e alle Moire, tutte tessitrici del destino. Queste arti, attraverso la trasformazione, suggeriscono la creazione di qualcosa di potente che scaturisce dalle proprie mani e, ancora più a fondo, della propria essenza. Da un punto di vista storico/culturale sono arti prettamente femminili: la stanza della filatura e del ricamo era territorio femminile, dove nei mesi più freddi ci si riuniva a tessere e tramandare storie antiche.

Remember when we used to post selfies to instagram?! I haven't in so long, but I wanted to post this to freeze this moment in time. To give myself something to look back on & say, that was me, then. My feed is for me first and foremost after all and I'm not in it very much which is a-okay but I have been through so much this past year and I am so conscious of my evolving and changing and failing and trying and i feel as though I want to hold it here somehow. I've been on an emotional roller-coaster of sorts lately and my mental health hasn't been great but I am doing okay and feeling brighter than I have. I am so grateful for the people in my life and to those that reach out... And to anyone that has messaged and i haven't responded to, i apologise, sometimes it's easier to jusy stay inside my head but I've read your words and thank you ❤️ Winter can be a difficult time for so many and with Christmas looming i know there are many who are struggling for various reasons... So let's be kind to ourselves and let's reach out to others if they need it #itsokaynottobeokay And today I truly am okay. I have rested, which i needed, and i've topped myself up with tea and OJ and words (currently reading Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, the third YA book in a row 📖) I hope you're okay too 😘 #folkandstory #tinytinymoments #asecondofwhimsey #calmversation #thisis41 #memyselfandportrait #smallsolace #pursuitofportrait #lovewhoyouare #mentalhealthisimportant #poetryisalive #youareenough #poetryforthesoul #untoldvisuals #visualfolk #daysofsmallthings #poetryofsimplethings #thisismycommunity #thesimpleeveryday #thisismykingdom #littlebitsof_life #littlestoriesofmylife #bedeeplyrooted #notestoself #everysquareastory

Il tag di oggi mi tocca particolarmente perché seminare il bello, cercare di vedere il lato bello della vita, in tutti i campi è quello che faccio ogni giorno e cerco di trasmettere a Leo! Secondo me il bello è ovunque intorno a noi, basta saperlo cogliere, forse, anche per questo amo l’arredo e curo molto la nostra casa perchè vivere in un luogo accogliente, a misura di tutti i membri della famiglia, rallegra l’anima anche quando tutto è grigio. Leo sembra di aver capito perché ogni volta che mettiamo in ordine mi dice” mamma ora é tutto più bello e si sta meglio”, quindi cosa c’è di più splendido dell’albero di Natale in questo periodo? ✨ Day 5 #seminailbello & #gioiedinatale , partecipo al contest di @zuccaviolina 🎄🌟✨ #laraceresaphotography #blogger #lifestyleblogger #happiness #ritrovailbello #poetryofsimplethings #smallmomentsofcalm #myslowlife #myslowliving #esercizidibellezza #livebeautifully #folkandstory #poetryofsimplethings #hoquestacosaconilnatale #cosy #christmasdecorations #christmasiscoming #teamchristmas #christmastree #rivieramaison #ricordamiilnatale #vivodiparticolari #bastaunbriciolodimagia #myhome #christmasdecor #christmasiscoming #thewomoms

This is how I imagine taking breaks looks like. In reality, it's erm, a bit more like me hunched over a desk or squished up on a sofa glued to my phone. Reading for me is a real joy. It's how I feel most rested and I get into the zone - or the flow. . . But getting myself to actually STOP and do that is another matter all together. Are you better than me at taking breaks? I hope you are. I've realized though, I actually have to PLAN my breaks in my day, otherwise, they just don't happen! Relaxing on a schedule!? It's how I roll. Sometimes. What's your ideal taking a break situation? 🌿 Walks, naps, books, films, coffee? . . . . . . . . . #intentionalliving #liveintentionally #intentionallife #liveonpurpose #slowlivingrevolution #slowlivingforlife #fillyourcup #feelgood #reading #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #mindfulliving #mindfulness #slowliving #livingslowly #slowlife #slowlivingforlife #seekthesimplicity #seeksimplicity #tinytinymoments #folkandstory #capturequiet #myquietbeauty

Strolling the bumpy walkway after a heavy supper, she loved peeking at all the frosty windows with candles, warmly flickering, beckoning neighbourly welcomes. In her old Irish village, The Season of Light began at the first dusting of snow. When the fog lifted, snowflakes sparkled on the quay, as little boats became giant iced figurines. Her mama baked tirelessly, as Joanna sat at the table papa built, waiting to help. Scents of cinnamon and nutmeg filled the cottage. Mama taught her to not over roll the brown dough, then firmly pressing the dough with the special cutter her papa made from tin, at his workshop. She would close her eyes and imagine the gingerbread boys jumping right out of the hot wood stove, onto her plate, looking at their clove eyes, as if they were looking right back. Her long fire red hair, tied in a green cotton ribbon, glimmered by the candle's light. The village children would jump in excitement, anticipating the ginger cookie they'd each receive. During The Season of Light, everyone baked something very special for one another. Giving was the most important thing, and if someone had less, others would give them more. She shared many stories of love at her village. Of the old table where they ate Mama's daily baked bread. Where they said grace even when meals were not plentiful. Oh, how I wish they could have brought the table to America! Only, they were barely able to bring a few bags of belongings over the rough seas. So this year, and every year, we will bake gingerbread, just like your great-great Irish grandmama's mama. Our hearts will carry the flame that flickered in the old village windows. We will give to others, and share our stories of Christmases long, long ago~Deborah~ . . . #folkandstory #aseasonalshift #embracingtheseasons #verilymoments #simpleandstill #darlingmoment #bellagracemagazine #littlestoriesofmylife #tinytinymoments #alittlebeautyeveryday #calmversation #mystoryoflight #stillswithstories #alliseeispretty #smallmomentsofcalm #countrylivingmagazine #victoriamagazine #countrylivingmag #seasonspoetry #gingerbread #christmasseason

Home sweet home. It is always nice and I am always grateful when we get to getaway for a couple of days. For the time to unwind and relax and explore but I also love coming back to our humble home. There is nothing like your own bed, or the sweet purrs and kneading of the kitties that love us so. Nothing like an epsom salt bath and slipping into your own robe after a long days drive... 🎄 It also doesn’t make it easy to leave when the Christmas tree is up and the house is extra cozy with the twinkle lights. We had a wonderful mini getaway but I think we also realized this trip how much we love our cozy little space and this home we are building and creating together. Plus I know solomon missed his bestie Rahu and deep down I know Ketu loves it when all the boys are home, even if she does walk by them with ultra sass most of the time xx . . . . #interiordesign #interiordecor #designer #interiorwarrior #designdaily #visualcollective #provinciallife #interior4you #stylistlife #aquietmoment #interiordetails #decorlovers #interiorstyling #simpleandstill #momentsofmine #folkandstory #vintagedesign #thatsdarling #livethelittlethings #thatauthenticfeeling #aquietstyle #nestandflourish #gatheredstyle #interior2you #dslooking #trottermag #pursuepretty #lightinspired #myeverydaymagic #cerealmag

Preheating the oven as we speak ☺️ just wanted to repost the directions I shared last year in case you want to try this too 😘❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ YOU WILL NEED: oranges, bag of cranberries, popcorn, twine (or any string really), and yarn needle (it looks big but it really is just right!). .⁣ .⁣ FOR ORANGES: Cut up 5 to 6 oranges into slices about a centimeter thick. Place on metal cooling racks in a 225° oven for about 2-3 hours (varies depending on thickness! - thicker, more time) .⁣ .⁣ FOR POPCORN: 6 Tbs of oil in a pot on medium heat. Put a couple kernals in and wait for them to pop. When those pop, add in 2/3 cup of kernals and cover. It will take a minute or so to heat up and start popping. Shake pot periodically to make sure unpopped kernals go to the bottom. Wait til popping slows to 1-2 sec. between pops and remove from heat. .⁣ .⁣ String popcorn, cranberries, and oranges in whatever pattern you like on twine and hang! 🤗😘❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #homeschool #homeschooling #aseasonalshift #calmversation #alliseeispretty #colormehappy #thisishomeschool #charlottemason #charlottemasoninspired #handcrafts #homeschooler #homeschooled #homeschoolmama #homeschoolmom #wildandfreemama #farmhousechristmas

As everyone's in a race with the holiday decor, we're over here in snail mode, hiding from the rush of this time of year, maybe because we're not getting a tree or dressing up every square inch of our house. We're just cruising by the frenzy. So today I woke up slowly, gave thanks, took a warm shower, had my morning cup and sat with my girls while they colored. Slow and steady I say.....slow and steady.

Photo 1, 2 or 3? I think this is the last of the late summer photos. I got so behind in posting when we were away. Part of me didn’t want to post them because I liked holding on to that last bit of summer. Still, I try to be seasonal here, so I have to make the photo switch to winter. I have spent hours and hours in the last few days sewing up a storm. I made a Victorian bustle dress for two Victorian events coming up. One of them is tonight and the other is on Sunday. I can’t tell you how excited I am about it! I stayed up late last night sewing the last little bits of silk while listening to a Thomas Hardy novel and sipping tea. It really was quite perfect. If I could make every winter night like that, I might end up loving winter. I am dying to take photos of the dress, but my usual forest haunts are knee deep in snow, so I am either going to have to get creative or wait for it to melt. Lastly, I edited today’s photos with my Lightroom presets which are available in my Etsy shop. They work in the free mobile version as well as the desktop app. . . . . . . . . #verilymoment #ofquietmoments #thisjaneaustenlife #folkandstory #quietinthewild #prettylittleiiinspo #myslowandsimple #dreaminginpictures #reclaimingvulnerability #ethicalfashion #slowfashion #linendress

Kindergarten has been so different for each of my 3 oldest kids. I tend to brace for losing their devotion to me as they open their little hearts for more friendship and a teacher who guides them. So far it hasn't really happened that they've tossed me aside like yesterday's news in favour of more (I'm being dramatic, yes). That is, until this year when my 5 year old started school. He loves his teacher something fierce. Imagine a perfect kindergarten teacher - soft and joyful voice, smile of sunshine, full of life, and that perfect balance of adventure and boundaries - she is the epitome of it all. And I got a little jealous! There! I said it! It was subtle at first, his love for his teacher. At first just chatting about her and loving his time at school. And I was relieved! The other two didn't adjust as easily to school, so it felt like I could breathe and not have to worry about him. But then I noticed his sweet nothings and little love card drawings for his mama dwindled and in his backpack I would find cards meant for his teacher instead. He would come home and have actual heart eyes for her. Thoughts would circle - I gave you life! I feed you the food! I offer you cuddles! Where is your allegiance?! And then after going over this in my mind for about 30 seconds, I realized i sounded like a crazy person. logic came back. Overbearing mom status pushed away. and then I helped him with his letters as he drew her cards and I listened to his joyful stories of how his teacher gave him a great 3 hours of kindergarten that day. And yes maybe I hug him a bit too tightly before I let go of him as he boards his school bus... I can only be so big. And again, gratitude. I know how hard an adjustment to school can be, and I'm so relieved his has been smooth sailing. Dear teachers: thank you for loving our babies while they're away from us ❤

At some point I’ve explored the idea of reducing the amount of chords we usually ‘use’ to create and compose a song. Usually, a song can have a couple of them, like four, five, six or even more. I had already a few ideas of songs with two. In Portuguese we can call this ‘um sol e do’ - basically a ‘C’ and a ‘G’ song. Both major. Very easy, super basic. A lot of folklore songs use only these two chords. @juliajacklin used this interval of chords in a beautiful song called ‘Small talk’. You really really have to listen to this song if you haven’t already. The arrangements and spirit of the song really come through. The evening I started working on this song here called ‘Sundown’, I was having a smoke chilling on the floor of my little studio, did a tarot reading while I was high and then took my small travel guitar (which I forgot at home before taking the plane to come to Thailand 😆) and started to drift with one chord. In my mind I slowly went back to the roads we drove in the beginning of this year cruising around the southwest in the US. Magical moments. I saw these endless distances around us, these beautiful national parks, the sunsets... I later arranged the song with lazy guitars weeping, a steady smooth drum-beat giving us this ongoing feeling of movement, like a car transporting us somewhere. Please check out my link in bio and maybe listen to it again to see if you get what I mean 😛. Because it means a lot to me🙏🏻🤩✨. . . . #staycinematic#musicartists#musicianlifestyle#captarte#gerador_eu#liveauthentic#talentoportuguespt#independentmusician#bomregisto#thecreative#p3top#featuremyworld#folkandstory#selfproduced#portugal_a_gramas#aminhavisao#independentartist#musicianofinstagram#gominimalmag#portugalcomefeitos#livefolk#estouaquipúblico

“Si cucina sempre pensando a qualcuno...altrimenti stai solo preparando da mangiare.” E io mentre impasto penso sempre alla mia bambina e al mio compagno di vita... perché non c’è nulla che riempia di più la vita, che ti faccia sorridere, che dedicarsi alle persone che si ama. Fare la pasta fatta in casa è un’enorme dimostrazione d’amore eh!!! 😝🥰 . . . . . . #hygge #hyggehome #hyggetime #slowsimpledays #livemoremagic #hyggelifestyle #eatmoremagic #livefolk #folkandstory #slowlivingforlife #foodfluffer #tablesituation #foodrecipes #moodyfoodphotography #darkmoodfood #darkfoodcanvas #darkfoodphotography #foodwithmood #moodietablescape #darkfoodstyling #foodinmotion #moodofmytable #italy ##ihavethisthingfordark #igersvicenza #igersveneto #impastare

Die zarte Lärche gehört mi zu meinen liebsten Bäumen Das sagt das Baumorakel zu der Lärche : Die Lärche hat eine luftige Ausstrahlung und dennoch zählt sie zu den zähesten Bäumen. Sie sieht aus wie ein Nadelbaum, doch sie wirft im Winter ihre Blätter ab und vertraut darauf, dass diese im Frühjahr wieder neu wachsen. Wenn die Lärche zu Dir kommt, dann nimmt sie Dich mit in die luftigen Höhen und sorgt gleichzeitig dafür, dass Du nicht den Boden unter den Füßen verlierst. Die Lärche zeigt Dir zudem, wie wichtig es ist, altes loszulassen, damit neues wachsen kann.

𝘚𝘸𝘪𝘮𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘸𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴, 𝘐 𝘮𝘦𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶. A six word love story. #SixWordMemoir⁣ ⁣ To write your own follow these steps:⁣ 1) Make a list of the 6 most defining moments from your relationship (doesn't have to be with a romantic partner, could be with your best pal, your dog etc) - describe each event as concisely as you can. ⁣ 2) Look over this list. Are there any running themes or motifs you can play with contained within? (for example, Ben and I met in a swimming pool when I was living in the Caribbean, after we were married I became very ill and it forced us to get to know ourselves, & each other, in a different way. My 6 word love story plays on the motif of Caribbean swimming with the rip tide imagery of dragging water (a metaphor for illness). We met originally when swimming, then we met different versions of the people we are through the experience of facing illness together, so the 'I met you' of my story reflects both of these points.)⁣ 3) Start free-writing phrases that come to you from looking at your list. You want the concentrated truth of your relationship story. Drill down to the essence of who you both were when it began and who you are now.⁣ 4) Mark out the phrases you like the most from those you have come up with. Play with them. See how you can get creative with the words to make them fit the six word format. (e.g. 'swimming into the tide, I met you' became 'swimming dragging waters, I met you'.)⁣ ⁣ I'd love, love, to read your six word love story if you play along! Either drop it in the comments, or tag me if you post it elsewhere. I'll share my favourites in IG stories. :)⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #sixwordlovestory #storytellers #therebelliousstoryteller #Littlestoriesofmylife #everysquareastory #storiesonmypage #lovestory #truelovestory #radlovestories #belovedstories #folkandstory #anotherwildstory #radstorytellers #adventurousstorytellers #writergram #alifeofwords #peopleofbookstagram #writerslife #femalewriters #memoirwriter

Because ornaments tend to turn around on the tree branches, I like to cover the backs with cute calico prints. At least, that way if they twirl, you aren’t seeing a #hoopbutt 😂🎄 Hope your week is going well. For me it’s sinking in how close Christmas is and how unprepared I am this year 😩😂

Como diz a máxima da Casa Stark, o Inverno está a chegar. Agora no início de Dezembro, apercebo-me de que perdi uma estação inteira (e uma das minhas favoritas) numa clausura forçada. No final de Setembro estive no Parque Botânico do Monteiro-Mor a fotografar a paisagem e deixei-me encantar pelos primeiros sinais de Outono. Mal sabia que não o iria viver em pleno como gostaria. 🍁🍂

🎄 Вот кто-то говорит,что у него нет новогоднего настроения...Так его и не будет, нам ведь уже не шесть.И далеко не шешнадцать! Нам теперь нужно усердно трудиться над созданием нужного настроя внутри себя. Я вот,например,делаю всякие поделки для декора,с адвент-календарём запарилась (скоро покажу,мой внутренний перфекционист считает,что он ещё не доделан), слушаю новогодний плэйлист, рассказываю ребёнку про самый волшебный праздник в году, смотрю любимые рождественские фильмы.🎥 И настроение появляется. Да,оно не стабильно, да, жизненные неурядицы,да и просто бытовые дела легко могут свести его на минимум. Но зажгите свечи,включите....да хотя бы тот же "Один дома" и оно появится,точно вам говорю!🎅 . . . . . . . . . . . #tv_fadingbeauty#tv_stillife#tv_living#tv_neatly#simplethingsmadebeautiful #calmcollected#slowandsimpledays#vsco#slowlived #slowanglow#theslowdowncollective#stylingtheseasons#slowdownwithstills#folkandstory#hygge#hyggstyle#hyggechristmas#myslowandsimple#slowchristmas#asimplechristmas
