Animals of the city

What a day! It doesn't seem to want stop raining. Gray morning in town ...let's have a look around and see if something happens.

The city looks desert. Very few people on the streets, but

there are all kinds of animals: a silver dog looking trought a window shop,

 two white hens  among the olive branches,

a cute bunny on a chest of drawers,

and a zebra.
The city wasn't  so desert!

Be good

My friends know how much I love animals. 
I have a particular fondness for dogs and chocolate eggs, and every year for Easter I can put together these my two great passions buyng my egg from the animal right association LAV.
I must say that the chocolate is delicious and, as every year, I have finished my egg well before Easter!

And this is the surprise I have found. Funny, isn't it? 


You can call it spring but low temperatures are back.There are clouds and it's going to rain again. What a pity! It would have been nice to spend a few days at sea for Easter.
I do hope that soon there will be sunny  days. For the moment I prefer to stay in my warm house, and make daytrips to the town.
It's better leave light clothes and, by the way, this is the green coat I was talking about last time.


A little black dress and a shirt of lightweight woll... pair of floral earrings, the pink necklace...

...and finally my Furla bag... I'm ready for my wonderful free day!

Green picks


Don't you find there is plenty of green around? I realise I haven't worn it often in the past but...if  I remember correctly, there shoud be a green coat in my closet...


...a different shade:this pale lime green is quite nice on skirt, sandals and purse.

Torino under the rain


As I was afraid yesterday, it started raining, and the weather forecast says it is going  ahead the same way for the whole week.


Temperatures were quite high in the morning and we  decided to go out all the same.
Most  shops were open and Torino was beautiful  under the rain.

We paused for our morning coffee...


...later I could not miss the opportunity to meet this sweet little lady. She is very elegant isn't she?

Today is cloudy  here, ( I'm afraid it's going to rain ) and the town looks like it was November. Just from  the shop windows you can get that winter is  over!
Today I am in the mood to wear neutral  colours.

I find that beige goes nicely with white, so I got out of my wardrobe a cotton skirt, a three-quarter sleeve shirt...

...and my extra large bag, full of ...I don't know what!!

I wish...


About things just cute...what do you think of this purse? 
I find it adorable. 


There are several of the same brand and them all have a funny sentence.
I realise that it sound as an  advertisement, but... it isnt!! I am just trying to imagine myself putting togeter one of these with my raincoat !
But If these bags are not for you, here are different ones...


...floral and very spring purses!

Spring is back! Here are three shots I have  recently done.
In my opinion, there is nothing more pleasant than a warm sunny day after the winter, to go around in search of something PRETTY CUTE.
Beauty is in flowers...


... in a poetic and graceful  way of arranging things...

...or in a bike, turned into a planter

Making things: a handbag


I find it quite relaxing to make things ( when I have  time! ). 
This bag has a floral MEZZOPUNTO enbroidery I stitched years ago for a pillow but I never used.
Here it has become a usefull pocket where I put keys, sunglasses and small things to keep on handy.
The bag has a wooden handle and a button to close.
I know, I know, it's far from perfect. . .


...but it was fun to make!

Two new outfits


I wasn't able to post in the last days because my Samsung Tab slipped off my hands and the touch screen broken. As a result I had to take it in  for repair assistance.
Anyway I am here again with two new outfits!
This time black and white for the dresses, high heels as usual and gorgeous handbags.

To make the look more casual I have chosen a denim jacket.


I find the result is nice, let me know your opinion

Not just a cup of coffee


There is a nice place in Torino where you can have a pizza, a delicious pasta or just a cup of coffee. If it doesn't rain you can sit outside...

...otherwise there are rooms inside ( one is upstairs ). If you go in, have a glance at the pictures hanging all over the walls: they are photomontages and are really funny!

Sunny day


Today it's sunny and temperatures are rising here. This require a change in my wardarobe.

I now, I now, rain and cold will probably come back but now I feel ready for some change!
So, let's start storing my heavy coat!
I'm always been a check lover and I find it perfect for every day life.


Today I wear this dress, with a cardigan of course!


I love floral earrings. These are a new pair I have  recently bought.
The necklace is peculiar: if you slide the pendant can use the gloss there is inside...


...and finally my old ( and a little dirty ) white bag.
Now I am ready for a new day at work!

Dedicated to...

Today a quite different post ...I would like to dedicate it to a lovely young lady I get acquainted with recently.
Her name is Ann and she lives in the U.S.A. An outfit of her ( inside the snow dome )  inspired my sketch.
( Serapian bag ).

Scent of Portofino


Some time ago my nephew and his lovely wife gave me a scented and soft bath foam.
My dry skin greatly appreciated it. In fact it is quite confortable to use thanks to  PH 5.5.
What's more, its name Piazzetta di Portofino evokes the place where famous people spent their holidays by the sea.  
I do like these little traditinal treasures.

Lovely Barbie doll

Those who have never had a  teddy bear raise their hand! What a tender friend! This one you see is an  elegant guy too!!

A delightful carillon...

and my own carillon.
But the only one, my super favourite. . . my own Barbie doll! Here she is : stilish as usual, in her little black dress!
I still remember the sunny summer afternoons I spent, as a child, playing in the courtyard of  my house

More colours


The incoming spring calls for more colours! And not just on accessories. In recent days I looked at the shop windows ( which are a source of suggestions! ) and I saw...


 ...a  charming yellow coat...


 ...a nice red dress...

...and a cute green jacket.


But if you are in the mood,  dare colorful stokings, leggins and socks too!

A touch of colour

Every year, at the beginning of March, I begin to perceive the arrival of spring even though the temperatures are  low. 
Clothes are still heavy but you can start adding a touch of colour with bags and shoes



there is a wide range of possibilities to choose from...


...that makes you look different
