Cherry a go-go...

Hi, friends! 

Here in Italy is "cherry season"! Hummm... I love this sweet fruit so much!
The color, the scent, the taste...

We can use them for:
Cherry pie
Cherry marmalade
Dried cherries
Cherries in syrup......

Of course: I had to make some photos in our garden, using an antiche teacup.

I hope you like!


Agatha and the Spring

Agatha is this beautiful grey cat with magical light blue eyes...

Nature is amazing! Simple white flowers give to the garden a light and fairy atmosphere...

I love those colors... a gift for our eyes and souls.


A great inspiration. For an art masterpiece, a recipe or a simple craftwork.

Where do you find your inspiration? Have you tried to look around your garden, the park near to your house or the streets? Beauty is everywhere!

Let me see your inspirations! 
See you soon!


"Topolini da Favola (Fairy Mice)" - The wedding

May is the bride´s month... So, I want to introduce you this sweet couple: Titti & Tore.

They are inspired at 20´s style.

So graceful and cute!

For the vintage lovers... and the romantic ones!

"Topolini da Favola (Fairy Mice)" - Gigetto, the artist!


In my fairy mice world, there is an amazing artist - a painter called Gigetto!

He doesn´t have an special style to paint - he loves to observe what happens around him and trasnlate this to his art... coincidence or not, the same thing happens to me!

Well... this is Gigetto.

Gigetto says: Hiiiiiii!


"Topolini da Favola (Fairy Mice)" - Lady Teodora

For my fairy mice collection, I create Teodora, a cute little mouse who loves Tea!!

All dressed in light pink, she´s a fancy lady!

Obviously she always has a teacup and teapot with her... (we never know when we´ll want to have a cup of tea, right?)

This was the inspiration for Lady Teodora: an antique pink teacup from my personal collection.

Hope you like it!


"Topolini da Favola" (Fairy Mice)

I´m really in Fairy Tale mood this days... my new project is called "Topolini da Favola" (Fairy Mice).

Coming soon!


Lovely Crowns...

I just love Crowns - they remind us Royalty, Nobility...

Is amazing to put one to decorate a special angle in our home.

So... I thought: why not make a tutorial to teach the "craftwork lovers" an easy and fast way to make a Crown?

I made a facebook video (in Italian, but I believe that is really easy to understand the steps to create them).

I hope you like it!


Easter with flowers - "I Fiory di Miky" by Marcelo

I´m back!
OMG... How I miss you all!

I want to show you my Easter decoration for this year.

To do it, I need to tell a little tale, called "I Fiory di Miky" (Miky´s flowers in italian).
When I wrote this tale, I was inspired by my collection of dried roses - wreaths and bouquets.

I love to tell stories. I can imagine a child listening this tale and enjoying this decoration...

This is Miky, the artist hare!

Miky is all over the decoration! 

Delicious cupcakes...

And this bathtub full of flowers...

I choose the colors: brown, light blue and yellow for this decoration (inspired by the stones of my garden and the dried roses).

I bought this vintage hare at an antique market and made this crown in cardboard and the tie in vintage ribbon. This is Lepronius - the Emperor!

The eggs - handpainting, decoupage, personalized monogram and logo.

And Miky, of course!

I couldn´t forget to use an antique teacup from my personal collection...
(I love the napkin folded as a bunny ears)

And this is the complete result!
"I Fiori di Miky" - my tale has become real!

Thank you for visiting... I wish you a Happy Easter!!!
