some days ago I find a galup panettone at the supermarket and I fell in love 
with it’s new vintage packaging! it’s so beautiful!! it’s one of that things you think: 
I wish I made this! really, you could go on their web site and see it closer. galup has 
opened a new store in turin few days ago, the first one in italy, to relaunch the brand, 
but I think they made it yet with the packaging! the chocolate one will be 
on my table for christmas!

a splash of coffee

I know I have to write a lot of captions for the last posts, but I really have not 
so much time these days and actually… it is damned boring! so I hope you could 
wait another day or two and in the meanwhile appreciate this post about drawings 
made with coffee used as watercolor!

silent witnesses of time passing by…

I have always loved tree bark… the texture, the rough surface, the infinite motives 
you could find in its lines… when I was a child I use to read books as trouble for 
trumpets, gnomes and woodland stories and the illustration was filled of secrets 
and hide illustrations, like trolls, faces, animals…

strumming away on my uke! aloha!

our trip to perù has been great! but so hard… every night a different hotel,
the luggage alway packed, 5 nights at more than 4500 mts of altitude, hours
and hours by bus and plane to go from a place to another.

brown! yum! bow wow!

and here we are… it’s november! to me the month in the middle… 
well, it’s definitely winter, but summer is still so close in memory and christmas 
is coming so far! it’s like a bridge you have to pass, so you wanna pass it quickly 
to arrive as far as you can on the other side! but we could make it more pleasant 
enjoying some little pleasure… the soft warm feeling of a new wool 
cardigan, the I-need-this-to-survive-the-cold-of-winter priceless flavour 
of some indulgent sweets, the chestnut taste…
