Although almost all of you are probably into a very autumnal mood, here in Sicily we are enojoying the last days of mediterranean summer.
Yes, we are still wearing t-shirts and sandals. It's still summer, but fresh air and some rain here and there are announcing that autumn is coming soon.
So this edition of "simple happy things" is about late summer, like last year in october.
I've collected some photos of little beautiful things that make me happy recently and I want to share them with you.
My favourite snapshot: this tiny bird called "african stonechat" ("saltimpalo" in italian). It lives in the (still dry) fields behind my home.
Tiny (but very hot) peppers S. grew in our garden:
Acorns! S. picked them up during our last trip to Selinunte archeological park:
If you want, you can look in my Flickr album at some snapshot I took in the western part of our region we travelled some weeks ago (Greek temples, Palermo, great panoramas from Erice ... you have to scroll down to the bottom to see them).
This acorns were green, but I wasn't enough fast in taking a photo, so now they are dry and brown.
A handmade paper rose S. brought to me after work (a colleague made it):
My first crochet-covered bottle is a good place for it, isn't it?
Books about craft bussiness on "patchwork pillowcase n.2":
Now that I'm out of work, I'm working to improve some aspects of my shop, but I'm also reading a very big novel by Ken Follett ("Winter of the world").
I'd like to listen something about your simple happy things in this period of the year. Leave a comment! :)
