week recap - April 04th-11th

Thanks for your feedback & comments on my last post, I certainly didn't want to make anyone feel bad or owing me something, that's not what I meant. If you read my blog from a feed reader, I understand you can't comment. If you can't leave a comment for whatever reason, I understand too. Maybe why not leaving a "like/heart" when you can't comment, that way I know someone has read my post & liked it but was unable to comment. It's like a little "free love" or a quick token of appreciation. What do you you think ?

always a faint memory

Today it snowed in many parts of Europe. London, Berlin, Milan ... and Montpellier too. But it didn't even stick to the ground (damned !!!) and didn't last more than a long hour. (shoots !!!) Oh well.

I only have these photos (and a couple of useless videos) for remembering it. I won't be able to say that it didn't snow in 2015 ... but really it hardly counts as a real snow day ! LOL

In case you missed it, there was another shop update yesterday, another line inside what I've decided to call the "Japan series" (Japan inspired accessories) Just see previous post.

Wishing you a lovely middle of the week !

beauty in the cemetery {1}

Before November got around, the boys, hubby & I, along my my inlaws, went to the town's cemetery, where hubby's grandparents (on his father side) were buried. It was a beautiful day, and the cemetery is relatively big, so we walked around with no particular reason. I am not religious but I am truly touched by the beauty that can be found in such religious places. I have taken some photos to share with you, I hope you don't think they're sad or that I shouldn't have taken photos there & that it is a lack of respect. I'm really thinking that as the contrary. It's paying tribute to all the persons, with such different lives & destinies. Some graves are removed on a regular basis, mostly by lack of room. (read more here)

I stumbled upon one of these (soon to be removed), and the old tin photo of the woman touched me so much I thought I'd immortalize her before she is completely forgotten by all. The leaf engravings were so beautiful & simple, I love these simple cement graves much more than the granit new ones.

Worn enamel hearts, so beautiful and painfully sad at the same time.

These were metal beads, and it made me feel like the time had frozen the day it had been put on this grave.

Completely weathered. Time & sun & rain erased it all.

Amazing antique textured glass on a very old grave. It covered it like a canopy.

There is so much to witness in a cemetery, for those who really want to see.

Just incredible to walk down the past.

Pine needles between the petals of ceramic flowers. They haven't faded one bit.

Seize the day, friends, seize the day.
