Today of all days...

Today of all days...
I'll show you my grays

Happy Halloween!


Mar del Plata II


Some clouds didn't bother us


 Fun at the seaside, even on a cloudy day, even fully dressed (almost) and later very wet


Cafe at the Boston, a favorite of Pablo and I (Favorite book store a block apart was closed on a Sunday)



Real Birthday on the 21st with Plants Vs. Zombies Homemade card and his monster of choice as a present



More sea



 Lunch with spectacular view (another favourite)


 Our own wimpy kid was a little feverish that day



More Cafe at the Peralta Ramos Forest Neighbourhood (and alfajor- typical pastry of Argentina- filled with dulce de leche)


It was really chilly here



 And candle on yummy chocolate cake at night at the hotel with grandma and uncle Emi


Breakfast farewell on Monday morning

And farewell to the calm, shiny, serene, spectacular, very beloved Atlantic Sea- I hope to be back again as soon as possible!

Mar del Plata

And then, to celebrate Mica's Birthday (real B-Day on the 21st) we took a lovely little trip to the beach. Again in my dear MDQ: Mar del Plata.

Curious trivia: first time we get there driving on our own! (And we've been there 20 times easily!)


Ice Cream on a cloudy day





And Finally the sea



Breakfast at hotel #1 (we changed the following day)




And the prettiest cafe I've ever seen anywhere




Oh the light and the height of those ceilings...This is my dreamt studio...totally inspired!

And they serve this ice-cream




Such a lovely place! My mom and brother were with us too!







































More coming soon!

Model










































I've learnt a lot working in my last session with Leila, my pretty model (and former babysitter of the kids) . Happy with the outcome!

For the Holidays













I've been working in some new pieces for the Holiday season. I'm mostly thinking of delightful small items that will come out at a very reasonable price to make perfect stocking stuffers.

I'll be soon posting them on the shop (after I work with a lovely new model tomorrow)

Yesterday I did the photo shoot at the little backyard. I've finally managed to position my table in the right spot to have the kind of light that I really like and shows my pieces best. I was hoping that my new table was going to be the spot, but I don't have the right light there, the light with "an edge" that I need, so i improvised and set up a little table where I needed it.

VERY excited about: the new pieces, the photos that I managed to take and my new handmade props (a couple incredible cute boxes that I've painted- It was so fun to make those that I could start a shop selling them :)

Getting ready for Mica's Birthday, a scary themed party, of course! He's going to be 6 in a couple of weeks.

Sweet

A custom order with date on the ribbon and letter. Turned out very sweet and pretty!

Enjoying now...


Little Lemon Tree at my backyard is blossoming. Sweet scented flowers and blossoms. Some petals fall and I crush them gently inhaling the wonderful aroma. It must be exciting to be an artisanal perfume maker



The company of my dear brother and adored Uncle Emi. The gentlest soul you could cross paths with. Haven't seen him for 2 years now!









Mica's drawing progress. This is a Yeti, He's never drawn with so much detail and interest before! I love when they draw. It was my favorite thing t do for my entire childhood and youth. (a.k.a. the time before the computers now that I think about it!)
