the beginning of the end... of the year!

That's the sweetest way to begin every day: pancakes, maple sirup, orange juice, coffee and my two loves!

The perfect way to begin the last day of my best year ever!

Happy New Years Eve, everybody! :)

hearts: completed! :)

that's the result of my ceramic work... i'm proud of them even if the color hasn't filled the whole hearts. i was undecided between red and white for a very long time and now my hearts have them both! perfect!!

i want to make more hearts soon... for next christmas... i love them!

christmas presents...

I found this original and ecological idea for presents... It's easy to make (if even I can do it you can believe me!) and the outcome is very nice!

you have just to cut some pages in stripes of 2 cm (i've chosen a very fashion one) and make 2 propellers

 and then create the bow...

 and that's the result!

I'm proud of that!!

delicious appetizers

saturday evening some friends have come for dinner and these were the appetizers: brioches with salmon and cheese. easy to prepare and absolutely good!

you need puff pastry, smoked salmon, creamy cheese (philadelphia) and poppy seeds. cut the pastry in slices, put salmon and cheese on a side and roll. put some poppy seeds on the top and bake at 180° for 15 min.
