A ‘cool’ photo of a rose kissing snow (love this shade of pink) with a two layered background, rose stems and bokeh. I didn’t expect a good result from this shot.  Photography is magic 😉

Ένα τριαντάφυλλο που φιλάει το χιόνι. Λατρεύω αυτή τη σκιά του ροζ. Με δύο στρώματα φόντου,  τριαντάφυλλα και bokeh. Δεν περίμενα ένα καλό αποτέλεσμα από αυτό το πλάνο. Η φωτογραφία είναι μαγική 😉

Happy New Year! May the new year bless everyone with love, good health, and prosperity.

It was a very rainy and windy New years eve here in Athens, but the weather didn’t stop the beautiful fireworks display from happening all over the city.

I am very glad to let 2018 go as it was a very challenging year for, not only myself, but for the whole world.  I am so thankful for this blog as it has helped me remain motivated and focused on my creative pursuits. Thank goodness for creativity!

The world can seem so dark,and life can be such a disappointment sometimes; people can be so cruel, but the beauty of art and nature balances it all out.

Stay strong no matter what the new year may bring. 🙂

 

 

November Rain

The month of November has long been the rainiest month in Greece. But, the rare ‘medicane’ (mediterranean + hurricane) that enveloped Greece this past Wednesday brought catastrophic flooding that took the lives of 21+ people, (many more have not been accounted for), and hundreds of people have been left homeless. This is the worst flooding Athens has seen in decades and it has left the country in a state of shock.

Global natural disasters are increasing by the day and whatever the cause, that fact is that we live in an unstable planet. Like our ancestors we have to adapt to the changes and continue to rebuild again. My sympathies and condolences to anyone who has lost someone to anyone who has lost a loved one the flooding, earthquakes and fires in recent times.

 

White Roses/Λευκά Τριαντάφυλλα

My fake white rose vase is a home decor project that I made recently. It is very simple and easy to make. Just get some coffee filters, pipe straws and painters’ tape, and green acrylic. The roses looked so real that my cat sniffed them! I was flattered 😉

As for the vase I hot glued beans on to the glass square vase and spray painted the beans with a  sliver metallic spray paint.

Το ψεύτικο μου βάζο απο λευκα λουλούδια είναι ένα άλλο διασκεδαστικό έργο DIY για τη  διακόσμηση του σπιτιού που έκανα πρόσφατα. Είναι πολύ απλό και εύκολο στην παρασκευή. Απλά πάρετε κάποια φίλτρα καφέ, καλαμάκια σωλήνα και την ταινία ελαιοχρωματιστές, και πράσινο ακρυλικό. Τα τριαντάφυλλα φαινόταν τόσο αληθινά που το γάτη μου τα μύρισε!

Όσο για το βάζο μου ζεστό κολλημένα τα φασόλια και τα σπρέι τους βαμμένα με μεταλλικό σπρέι.
