↑ wild strawberries... they were so sweet! ↱ This is my grandmother's treasure! She did it herself -- ... let's say it's an embroidered babouche filled with plush strawberries! Many-many years ago someone might have sent her DIY instructions or, probably, she might have found some European magazine picture cut, and thus the treasure was born! It may be perfectly used as a ... needle-holder!
↑ Sweet cherries in a Gzhel basket-vase. When I stayed in Russia, a friend of mine gifted this to me. Gzhel is a town in Moscow area (about 60km drive from Moscow, if to be precise) which is famous for its Gzhel ceramics, traditionally hand-painted in blue & white only.
↓ ... and these are my two Geraniums -- scarlet and pink!
↓ ... and this is my new sunny-shiny Hibiscus!
↓ ...now, some confidential photos! 8) When in Russia, i stayed in a house about 1 hour drive from Moscow, so, you are going to see some pics from that house!
I don't know if the owners of the house wouldn't mind it to be displayed publicly, so I'll show it for a couple of days only for you to see and then delete it. So, be in good time to see! :)
↑ ... there were only ceramic tiles floor and wooden walls (ah, and a macrame oak too) given, and i bought all the filling -- a forged table, a banquette with a Turkish pillow on it, a vase with physalis from the garden and a framed painting. ↙My cat, Mansour bhai! :)
