Number’s…they have such interesting meanings and associations. You could ask anyone for his/her favourite number, and they will all have one number already chosen. We choose our favourite number by our birthday, by its spiritual meaning or religious association… in each case, almost all of us have this particular interest or favouritivism for one specific number. I can tell you that my favourite number is 7, as for my brithday is on the 7th December… as simple as this!

Anyway, this is not about favourite number’s, but about a project that I began a few weeks ago about numbers. Actually, I started out two projects! {number’s editorial}… a series of interviews based on Numbers and Words!

And another one based on the Number’s I would find among my Photowalks… based on this idea by {littlebrownpen}

step-by-step recipes :: blueberry and strawberry muffins

After experiencing {number’s editorial}, I thought about inviting more and more friends over… but I needed a different subject this time. It had to be something that would allow the guests to share and teach something… and also allow the readers to learn something and delight themselves with the lessons learned. So, {shall we eat something?} was born. The next question was crucial… who would be the very first guest? Of course, our beloved Baking Queen :: Madhu. So, here’s Madhu’s contribution…

Firstly, baking is an absolute passion…”

{madhu’s lovely kitchem and nigela’s book}

We shall make something absolutely easy and delicious!! For breakfast, teatime or anytime!!

What shall we bake?
Blueberry and strawberry muffins

1/2 cup (4 oz) melted butter

Note from the baker: This recipe is versatile. Two cups of blueberries without the strawberries for blueberry muffins. I sometimes go overboard and add 2 1/2 cups of the fruits.

And now the m

odeling debut, with rivals cuppie tea towels!

As I mentioned earlier this is an incredibly easy recipe which is a keeper. I always have fun with it by varying the fruits…

{apple cinnamon with raisins}

{banana chocolate chip}

{double blueberry}

…and the list goes on… mmm… must try raspberries with white chocolate!!

Dear Kitchen, for me you are…
“…the heart of our home. You bring the family together. Love that you overlook the family area as I like being close to the sound of my sweet family whilst I satisfy my passion for baking.”

And this is it for now, dear friends!

I truly hope you try out these delicious muffins and share with us the results! If you have already tried, give us a note to let us know how it went!

Have a happy happy weekend!!!


{random} stories :: creativity sneak-peeks

…as promised…

In a moment where lightness and courage are feelings that must stay close to my heart and mind… I think it would be a good moment to remind me of the small things that really provide me with an amazing sense of delight and pleasure.

I truly hope I’m done searching for one thing. True Love.

Concerning other things… well… those I’m still looking.


{random} stories :: sweet feelings

… sweet feelings are warm feelings…

We feel warm when we feel comfortable… when we feel at home… when we feel close to our loved ones. We feel the sweetness in our days when there’s warm in our heart and thoughts.

These last days were not that sweet nor warm. Actually part of those days were exactly sweet and warm… but always with a dark cloud above me. I miss lightness in my days.

Have you ever felt like you must end something, although you don’t know when that end is happening… nor what is coming next?

Hope so. I would know that this feeling is not alone. 

Which ever answer you have for me… please let me remind you (actually… myself!) that you should have always the courage to put an end to bad moments in your life… to choose a different path… or just to look for a path that makes you feel happy and… light. 


film stories :: embrace random results

Oh boy… it has been a real challenge since last Christmas… when my dearest Holga came to my hands. I was thrilled! “Yayyyyy, I have my very own lomo camera!!! I’m such a special girl!”

 Well… special or not, I guess that’s really not the point, but what’s really important is…

{…to free yourself from all the habits that you engage before and…

…embrace random results.}

… sometimes it’s not that easy. Either because you forget to take off the lens cap (oh yes, that happens!), or you forget to advance the film after shooting, which means you’ll get a double exposure (which is ok, if you really mean it)… and because the final result will always, but always be a surprise.

Holga has her own and very special {personality}.

These are my {random results} so far…

{Well… but I won’t give up you, dear Holga.}
