Artisan Cocktails with Atelier de Fer

When we see a project we always ask where it was born, where is the source of inspiration. If you think about it, the answer is often the same, and very simple: the idea was born by chance, maybe while doing something else or simply chatting. We should then be curious to know on what basis a newborn idea can grow and develop, how it can be supported and brought forward.

Talking to Fernanda Muniz (her friends call her Fer) from Atelier de Fer I discovered that from a simple cloth, folded and turned here and there, something wonderful is born.

daisies

Of women and flowers

Let’s try together to interpret this new trend; what do you think? Do you like flowers? Yes, but which flowers?

I’ve seen for a while this new idea on Pinterest, this new concept is also an original way of thinking about floral arrangements.

Is there a lover of flowers among you? Because I’s be glad to talk about it again, I really have a thousand questions.

Magical tents for cuddly moments

Photography by Jeltje Janmaat

 

I like the idea of featuring a post from my first blog that had a good feedback and was greatly appreciated, where I described one of the things that has more appeal in recent times: there is no home, room or corner where you do not want to recreate

We are here

From which part of the world do you read me?

I was wondering… each of us right now is behind the screen of a computer, a tablet, a smartphone: I write and you read me, but where are you?
I’m writing from Milan as you already know (see my about!) And you? Tell me your town, city and country and together we’ll discover that, near or far, WE ARE HERE!
Do you like this graphic? I would like to make some postcards so I can send them to all my friends, what do you think?

WE ARE HERE!

A house is… a Tiger box

Hello, I live at number 8, at Tiger house!
A few days ago on my Instagram profile (if you still do not follow me here is the link http://instagram.com/girotundo/#) I posted a picture titled “I got home”: it has red roof tiles, walls in pink and white stripes , a little flower on the window and a bird on the door. What do I want more? Ah, there’s also a cat!

Remember to smile

Let’s smile all together, will you? I’ll do!

Today I’ll show you some shots directly from my desk … I made this composition some time ago, I’d say it dates back to June, when I worked on the patterns for my new blog (by the way, have you ever noticed that you can customize my blog appearance by choosing the colors you prefer?), and so playing and experimenting I began to build these big letters with a “soft” shape… a “roundy” shape.

summer sweet popsicles

The popsicle melts

 edibleperspective

What was the star of this summer? Definitely the popsicle! And it still is… after all, summer is not really over.
The popsicle is a consolation, a shelter, a snack, a small moment of relief… but it’s not only this, it’s a set of fresh flavors and bold combinations that are new for you to discover, and why not try to prepare at home.
