Wintertime winds

I had decided last night that I would go out the next day and take fun filled pictures to give you an intimate look at my world.
Of course it rained, no problem I thought, a little rain never hurt anyone. Yeah, it started to pour then lighting came into the picture. Still I thought no use in going back home empty handed.
There's a pink house, beautiful and somewhat nauseating at the same time that I had been wanting to photograph for a while. No one lives there but it's pretty well maintained. I also kept passing by this small creepy little cemetery but the shots didn't come out as great ,as it had began to rain even harder the minute I stepped out to take a picture.
Still I had managed to take some nice stills the day before, it's these colors contrasting that instill a calmness in me and inspire me to come up with more designs.
I have yet to find a good art store here, I need some good quality water color paper. I think I might fill my sewing/ art room with my paintings , as opposed to "fashion" pics. I don't know why but I have never followed or been much interested in the fashion world, meaning buying vogue or checking out the latest Gucci design, what am I missing here? I feel at times like I'm not into it as much as these other girls, like they know more about it than I do yet it seems its my job to know?
I always used to get a bit shy when this crowd of fashionistas used to chatter about the latest trends and who's in what ,and what's out. I had no idea , it never crossed my mind to really care. I think that's where my discomfort came into play when I was working in the business, I didn't have the care or drive to research what was happening.
I was perfectly content with finding random inspiration from movies, music,colors from different leaves and plants,embroidery work ,or looking at an old painting. And now reading through certain blogs. I still am finding pleasures from all those things and will continue to work with them.
I cannot wait for spring, I want plants surrounding this whole house, even bought some macramé holders to put the plants in. I might also try and plant some cactus and my favorite flower,the ranunculus. In the meantime I'll enjoy the cold and indulge in warm cozy sweaters and hot tea.

Searching everywhere I go

Here I am, in my temp country life. All the pictures I have been taking in my trek here and my explorations of my surroundings.

I can't complain, it's peaceful and i have the most amazing view to wake up to every morning. Sunsets are the best too! The colors, they make me feel like I'm in the 70s , if that makes sense to anyone else.

My sewing room is almost finished, I haven't really set it up but I have managed to make some new designs. I have also gone about thrifting, now there's a true meaning to the word thrift out here. I'll be adding vintage items to my shop now, really excited about that.

Besides decorating I must admit I have been relaxing and nestling in my new home with my love. Watching lots of movies and documentaries , which explains my new found love for sir Paul and Linda. I've always been a George girl but Paul's openness on love is really inspiring and heart warming. His music always cheers me up and his sense of humor makes me happy.

More updates and designs will be coming up. I can't wait to show you.
