Once Upon A Summer ...

It is so cosy to spend nice relaxing evenings at home after work when everything around is calm and quiet and the positive and pleasant things come to mind... Today I was thinking that getting to know creators and crafty people and learning the best one can from them is probably one of the great things one can do in life. It is so inspiring! There are amazingly many interesting and incredible people in this world who are great talents - thinkers, observers, artists, creators... It is overwhelming knowing this and also the fact that it would take me more than one life to learn about all of them and admire all their work. This post is to the grand and unique ideas and people who stay true to themselves and keep creating and doing what they like no matter what!

These lamps were hand made and sold by a man on the street in Venice late at night - he couldn't have chosen a better time for the stunning light effect. The man looked simple and was accompanied by an old dog of his... And he was telling stories about his lamps...

What a charming scene. I bet his stories would have made you want to buy a whole lot of his lanterns.

Dear Olga,
I don’t know if it’s a coincidence but it looks that you read my thoughts. I guess you know why. All the different experiences that I’ve became aware among the net (for instance) are so much inspiring and it’s a pleasure to see other creative minds doing their blogs and their works. Each one with their own specific skills and interests, enrich us a lot, and it's a pleasure to follow them. Life would be so boring if we’d all have the same hobbies and interests in life, if all blogs would be about literature, or cinema, or photography. Diversity is what makes it so interesting and so appealing to follow. We follow a blog mainly because we feel it can add something to our knowledge. Your post is very interesting. A big hug. TI
