Some old premises at Limassol old town
Love this petite roundabout.
Awesomely renovated stone house, today a club.
Street art in Limassol old town.
Renovation project someone?
Chilin in the old carob mill premises.
Who marked husbands shoes?
Limassol old town is fascinating me. Lots of quirky old houses, some in really bad shape yet charming. Cypriots don't seem to be in a hurry restoring their old buildings, but it's made with great love once done. Municipality is driving renovations in the area, why several streets are really messy. But it's getting really posh where ready. At the renovated old carob mills we had some cakes assumingly sweetened with carob syrup. And papa noticed someone had marked his shoe with "papa". Just like he marks the kids clothes and shoes. Could it be Leo?

Head over to shabd to enjoy some stunnning clothing in the most beautiful fabrics.

Cuckoo hanging with us
2012: Lots of days to fill with beauty. Hopefully a very creative year; exploring and discovering new materials, techniques and ideas. Getting hands dirty and producing lovely things. What do you expect from this fresh year?

Beautiful things to drool after over at a Fab sale : Gold ball chain rings by Gabriela Artigas and Marlena Necklace by Fay Andrada.

I think 2011's been the busiest year of my life. How do I know that? I've knit so little last year.
Where the salt lake meets the Mediterranean
It's somehow fascinating how the mediterranean meets the salt lakes in Akrotiri this time of the year.

This winter has been unusually cold and rainy. Of course nothing like up north. The most significant difference for me has been the long winter days and the absence of my usual winter lowness.

The other day we almost panicked when we spotted mould in the top corner of our house. Quite soon we where calmed down when realizing mould winter time is a typical phenomenon in cypriot houses. Nothing that a bleeche and water mixture can't put a stop to.

I'm almost done knitting a cardigan that I can show you in a while.

Some favourite blogs lately: coco, a butterfly in my hair, via (in Finnish) and at swim-two-birds.
