In sfarsit, parca se simte toamna un pic; soarele arde ca si pana acum, insa umbrele sunt mai lungi si mai reci, iar diminetile sunt mai racoroase. Odata cu vestile bune legate de vreme, apar si altele, tot bune: Simone a deschis noul ei magazin on line, plin de lucruri frumoase! click aici

Finally, the autumn seem to come; the sun still burns hot, but the shadows are a little longer and colder, and so are the mornings. And here is another good news: Simone opened her new shop on line, filled with beautiful things! click here

O alta veste interesanta pentru cei care vor calatori in Olanda la inceputul lunii septembrie este redeschiderea magazinului Johannei click aici. Am fost acolo inainte de renovare si mi s-a parut un loc minunat: atatea si atatea lucruri frumoase am gasit acolo, ca intr-un loc de poveste! Mi-a fost greu sa nu cumpar din fiecare coltisor cate ceva! Oare cum va arata acum?! Se redeschide pe 10 septembrie, merita sa mergeti pana acolo! 

Another interesting news for those who are travelling to Netherlands in the early days of September is the re-opening of Johanna's magical shop click here. I have seen the shop early this spring and I was amazed by the so many lovely things found there. When I entered the place I thought I was in a fairytale world! I had to refrain myself from buying one piece from everything! I wonder how it will look now?! It opens on 10th of September, it's worth visiting!

Am reusit sa conving aparatul de fotografiat sa munceasca un pic, dar doar un pic. A ramas la fel de incapatanat :-).

I managed to make the camera work, but just a little. It is as stubborn as it was yesterday :-). 


 
Vremea a ramas tot atat de fierbinte, dar acum pe seara s-a starnit vijelia. Poate ploua, poate ploua!

The weather is still hot as yesterday, but now, in the evening, the wind started to blow in swirls. Please God, give us rain!

Din nou suntem loviti de canicula :-(. Sa speram ca e ultima din acest an. Pana si aparatul de fotografiat refuza sa lucreze pe caldura asta, asa ca va pot arata doar roza vanturilor terminata, atat a dorit aparatul meu sa presteze azi :-))).

We have very hot weather again :-(. We hope and pray it will be the last time this year. Even the camera refuses to work on this heat, so I can show you only the mariner's compass, this is all what my camera agreed to do today :-))).



 Te rugam, toamna, vino! :-) Please come, dear autumn! :-)

Caldura zilelor de iulie a indus un soi de moleseala peste toti si peste toate. Acum lucrez o dantela care este asteptata peste mari si tari:

The hot days of July slowed everything down. Now I am working at a crocheted lace, which is to go abroad when finished:

La sfarsitul saptamanii trecute ne-am intalnit cu niste prieteni care si-au cumparat o rulota de putin timp si care abia asteapta sa iesim undeva in natura, sa petrecem o saptamana  in aerul curat si tare de munte. Drept cadou de rulota noua am inceput sa le lucrez o roza a vanturilor, ca o urare permanenta de a avea drumuri multe si frumoase cu rulota. Iata ce am lucrat pana acum, dar mai am ceva de facut inainte de a incheia micul quilt:

Last weekend we met two of our friends, who have just bought a caravan; they are eager to make their first trip with the caravan and we plan a one week stay somewhere in the mountains, away from the frying city. As a gift for their new caravan, I began working at something as a surprise for them, a little patchwork project; I still have some things to do before ending the tiny quilt:


Ne-am intors acasa cu bratele pline de flori:

We came home with a big bunch of lovely flowers:
