Esta sexta-feira amanheceu cinzenta e chuvosa, e assim vai continuar. Um dia perfeito para ficar in em vez de out, enroscada num cobertor a beber chá de menta, daquele que aquece o corpo e queima a ponta da língua.

This friday began grey and rainy, and it's going to continue that way. A perfect day to stay in instead of out, curled up in a blanket and drinking mint tea, of the kind that warms up the body and burns the tip of your tongue.

Na mesma tarde, duas coisas completamente diferentes.

Same afternoon, two very different things.

Lembram-se da feira em que participei há uma semana e tal atrás? Passei tanto tempo a conversar com o resto dos participantes (e até consegui ter tempo para tirar umas fotografias a esta casa) que acabei por tirar só estas fotos do evento. 

Remember the fair I participated in a week or so ago? I spent so much time talking to the other participants (and even managed to have some time to take some photos of this house) that I ended up taking only these photos of the event.

A certa altura, parei e fechei os olhos, só por um bocadinho. Não ouvi carros, sirenes ou toques de telemóvel, só o vento a rodopiar entre a folhagem e a fonte velha a correr sem pressa. Por vezes penso que podia viver ali.

At a certain point, I stopped and closed my eyes, just for a moment. I didn't hear cars, sirens or cellphones ringing, just the wind swirling among the leaves and the old fountain running without haste. Sometimes I think I could live there.

Shop update :: New bracelets!


Como prometido (e com um dia de atraso), aqui estão as novas pulseiras à venda na loja! Apesar de não me ter corrido muito bem, um dos grandes benefícios de ter participado na feira em Abrantes foi o ter-me inspirado a fazer uma série de modelos novos de pulseiras, e isso é sempre bom, certo?

As promised (and a day late), here are the new bracelets for sale at the shop! Despite the fact that it didn't go very well for me, one of the big benefits of participating in the fair at Abrantes was that it inspired me to create a series of new bracelet designs, and that's always good, right?

Na aldeia das minhas avós o outono é glorioso. As amoras estão já escuras e secas, as oliveiras dão azeitonas ligeiramente amargas, cheira a fumo da lenha que já povoa as lareiras, os caminhos cobrem-se de fruta madura e folhas de todos os tons de amarelo, e há árvores da cor do fogo.

In my grandmothers' village autumn is glorious. The blackberries are dark and dry, the olive trees are filled with slightlty bitter olives, it smells of smoke from the wood burning in the fireplaces, the paths are covered with ripe fruit and leaves with all the shades of yellow, and there are trees with the colour of fire.
