Hurray! I have been wanting to travel to Italy for a long time and now I've got a chance, let's fly to Torino and meet Alessandra aka Ixela, the sweetest architect in Italy! Besides her architect work she creates beautiful accessories from yarn, beads and vintage jewelry.
Enjoy the Italy! :)
It’s 6.30 in the morning... I have just opened my eyes... the alarm has already rung in our little flat under the roofs... it’s already time to wake up... today my very normal day is going to be a special one... just because I’m going to share it with you all!... Thank you so much dear Heli!!!
Right away we have our breakfast... everything is already prepared (croissants and a big cup of milk and coffe)... my dear hubby always wake up earlier then me since he his not a great sleepyhead!In the meanwhile we take a look at the television news and the weather forecast... then a little peek at my Etsy shop to check the news... I adore to receive conversations... they make me begin the day in a good mood!
Then quickly I get dressed (my hubby says I’m a real land snail!), I put on all my rings (I never go out without them... I feel naked!), one last glance at the mirror and then...
... speedily to the tram stop... I hope this morning I won’t have to wait to much there in the cold!!!
When I arrive in the midtown the city is still awakening... I really love to walk throught these peaceful streets while reaching my office... a little apartment in the old town center.
Here I meet Elena... she is the owner of the architecture and interior design office where I’m working since September of the last year... we design especially alpine architectures and stylish mountain chalets.
After about 4 hours sitted at my workstation, I leave the office to come back home... just a look at some lovely shops before reaching the tram stop again and two steps along the river... near my house there is a nice footbridge over the Po, the most important italian river and one of the four rivers which cross Torino.
It’s already 14.00/14.30 when I finally arrive again at home... I switch on my PC and the TV (well I have to admit I’m a television addicted!), just two little diet snacks for lunch (I’m always on a diet... and I have always to lose weight!!!), and I’m ready for my afternoon “Etsy session”...
I answer to the Etsy convos, I listed/renew some items, maybe I grab a t-west or a big T, sometimes a little jump in the EST thread, maybe even a little chat with my dear friend Silvia (http://silvia66.etsy.com/) who lives in Modena or with Triz (http://triz.etsy.com/) from Israel, then I work a little bit on some new projects... today I have to make a blocking (don’t you know what is blocking?... you can take a look here http://www.knitsimplemag.com/node/17) for some items I finished last evening and to arrange my Thank You cards.
The afternoon is alreay finishing... my hubby has just back home... I profit on him to take some photos to my last creation... in the bathroom there is the only plain wall in the house that I can use as a backgroud for my pictures during the cold season.
We live under the roofs so, only few walls are high enough... and those too are all full of furnitures, objects, vintage toys and little funny things... we have no children, but we ourselves are a little bit children yet!
And now I’m going to prepare something good for dinner, then a little bit of TV while crocheting a new scarflette on my lovely couch and finally once again in my bed already thinking of the upcoming weekend... me and my hubby will go for some shopping with our little Mini which needs to stretch its wheels!
