A small step towards clarity…

I took an afternoon walk into the fields, just me and my camera (and, oh well, the bugs). It is amazing how nature has everything planned into perfection. Every little detail, every function, every curve and every edge. Nothing exists for no reason. I love how some delicate looking plants have such a strong pinch…

“Bugatsa” desert in a delicious version

In the midst of undoubtedly crazy times, hectic preparations, trouble solving tasks, some personal ups and downs and the usual unresting mind that keeps me company as the base of it all, I will put it simply. One needs sugar. And if sugary feelings lack, one needs even more sugar. That is when my dear…

Α butterfly for Danai-Vintage

But how can you spread your wings and fly? Will they let you? I often ask myself if I think too much or too little of the things I am “supposed” to do. That society asks of me. The unwritten “rules” and “regulations” with which I must comply in order for the others to feel…

Light, fresh ideas, and Danai-Vintage

Oh! the light, how it can change everything. Our ideas, our thoughts, the scenery itself. I enjoy the light. It is this time of the year again that everything starts appearing clear, as if the dark grey cloud of the winter moodiness is about to fade. And it is. Although it is the season of…

In bloom with Danai-Vintage

How about those old precious clothes? Filled with memories, moments, life and the occasional rebellious threads coming out of the seams? Sometimes, as everything in this world, they have completed their own circle in someone’s life and are ready to be freshly reimagined and re-owned. I am all about sharing clothes. Sometimes I even believe that…

Frid-esque

I have discovered a newly found freedom in expression. It is called, not caring for feedback of any kind. This alone is capable of releasing some profoundly positive energy waves and carry you from periods of pain to such of the brightest light. They won’t last for long, no. You will most probably relapse into your…

Mini Choco – Orange Pavlova’s for two …or one. (by Maria D.)

Well, whether you celebrate today or not (I mean even when being with someone), a Sunday is always a good occasion for some desert to go along with your late-morning coffee. I never really celebrated Valentine’s day, as in my mind it was always associated with those awkward days in elementary school, when the popular…

DIY Dreamcatcher and dreams…

I have always been a dreamer. I ‘ve mentioned it before. Lately I ‘ve felt inspired in so many ways and found so many new things to dream about, that I almost feel complete only by dreaming of them. Is that absurd? I think not, as I am sure that many people like me find a…

Happy Resolutions for a New Year

It is funny that we wait until the 1st of each year in order to make our resolutions. Maybe its the glittery feeling of the night or the sparkling wine in our lipstick stained glass that somewhat gives the impression of formality to all of this. It may be just another day, but it is…

DIY Christmas Wreath. Merry Christmas!

I met a lady in the train yesterday whom I know from the gym classes I take. She is lovely, highly educated, but so far unlucky in life. When I asked her how she was, she told me “these days are a bit difficult for me, being lonely and all”… I tried to change the…

Drying citrus fruits for decorations

Do you ever notice that some feelings are associated with smells?  Today it had to smell like orange. And clove. It had to be Christmas in every way possible around the house, as Christmas is the best anti-depressant for the moody winter days. Drying fruit for decorations proved to be much messier than I thought,…

Fragile dreams…

I have a soul that likes to hide. Half in the light and half in some very dark shadows. These two extremes have somehow found an ephemeral balance to the point of a certain kind of numbness. Never before did I feel so lost in thoughts as I do now. And never before did I…
