Sunset

I’m tired and uninspired these days. Time from morning to evening seems to pass in an instant, without me accomplishing much. The middle of summer can do this to me sometimes, making me feel like I live at the edges of myself. Having to do some tedious stuff for a job related exam doesn’t help either, but I’ll finish soon with that and I hope to feel more creative afterwards. I’ve started a while ago a new embroidery, stitching a saturated orange paper to canvas. It will be a sunset with far away mountains, a scenery that I long to see.

The mountains

I collect vintage postcards from the Romanian seaside, but over the years I have picked up a few from the mountains, too. The postcards are from the fifties. The glittery skiing card was mine as a kid, but I think it was older back then, I think it’s from the seventies.

Linking up with Vintage Bliss Tuesdays.

Parma violets

From time to time, people leave plants for us in the urban garden my friend created next to our building. Some are plants meant to be planted outside, in the garden, but also plants that couldn’t survive outside are left to find a shelter in our home :). It’s always such a great surprise to pass by the garden and find there a plant, or even pots and small gardening supplies that people donate. I have written here.about a huge cactus and some smaller cacti someone left for us in the garden. Yesterday, there were three pots in the garden, two of them with pink Parma violets and another with a different leafy plant. All of them not suited to be outside in the hot weather, and of course not in the winter. So, we have now three new plants inside. I have wanted Parma violets for some time now, so I took the bigger pot to my room, where the rescued cacti 🙂 live, too.
