Converse All Star (Spring 2010) ... my retro phase :)

YAY!
Got them yesterday :))))



 ... and already took them on a stroll :)))

where I found out they set up a new, huge advertising panel right around the corner....



... and even though I tried the strawberry one the other day and it really wasn't good (too sweet and "artificial" for my taste), I couldn't help but feel a sudden, strong craving for cup-cakes :)
(guess this add worked after all :)

Barcelona Town House

I love this concrete and glass town house in Barcelona.
Love the feeling of open spaces...
...AND of course the terraces :)

Brand and Logo free Marketing :)

Skip the stylish brands on the shelves and overlook the stylized logos – this brand is speaking right to you in direct (and rather humorous) statements printed in simple font against bare one-color backgrounds.

Perfect Spring Day ....

Seriously... PERFECT!


Bought a new gas grill today :)
Took a loooong walk....



(love the architecture of this building down the road)


It just doesn't get any better than this... (Especially since the hay fever wasn't giving me grief!)

First SUNNY weekend throughout .... YAY...

It's amazing how much I have missed the SUN and WARMTH. This weekend really was the FIRST this year when it's been nice, sunny and warm throughout!

Finally the garden furniture came out and we had the first coffee/breakfast on the terrace outside :)

Here are a couple of impressions from our garden's "spring awakening" :)

(for NY TImes)
 
 A vast high-altitude cloud of volcanic ash continued to spread over northern Europe on Friday as airspace and Europe’s busiest airports remained closed and thousands of flights and millions of passengers around the world — from North America to Asia — were affected.

Kitchen Project - The Results... :)

We're done :)

(Lots of kisses to the best hubby in the world for tackling this over Easter! 
Love you, baby!)









(uhm... this was a GREEN glass Mickey... until I decided to put it into the dishwasher...
turned out, it wasn't GREEN glass at all, but plain glass with a green foil .. *head desk*)



Now we'll wait for the "new orange chairs"... I put our company's office supplier on it. He said he could probably get me some similar chairs to the one from that LA designer (Italian Design, which will be fine by me, as long as they look anything like the ones I "fell in love with". We'll see :)

Kitchen Project.... All in a Day's Work...

...feeling quite accomplished (and... uhm.... slightly paint-covered ;)

.... ALL but the ORANGE wall is done, it will be tackled tomorrow ...
(we have to wait for the other paint to dry first :)


I love the new color, so much warmer and cozier than the "harsh" white we had first...


I particularly love my new "little gallery"
of me and the "men in my life" :))))







... Afraid the menue for tonight will be frozen Pizza :)
