November Rain

blackrosebwrose2whiterose

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

Bouquetof rosestext

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.

White Rose In My Garden

The white rose is a favourite of many brides for their bridal bouquets. It symbolizes purity,  innocence and honour.

Το λευκό τριαντάφυλλο είναι ένα από τα αγαπημένα λουλούδια που χρησιμοποιούν οι νύφες στις ανθοδέσμες τους. Συμβολίζει την αγνότητα την αθωότητα και την τιμή.
