Isn't she cute!

We bought this cute ''kittybank'' in Egypt. And no, unfortunately she doesn't have any money inside her :)

When I was in Salzburg

Cold and snowy Salzburg! But very beautiful!

We were there just a week before Christmas, so it was decorated beautifully and the Christmas Markets has started!

I do recommend seeing it, but I wouldn't go there in winter again...

Movie Thursdays: Precious

In New York City's Harlem circa 1987, an overweight, abused, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child is invited to enroll in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction.

A story that makes you feel all bad inside after you watch it...
Very good played (the mother played by Mo'Nique even won the Oscar) and an absolutely good movie! 
CAUTION It's not a Chill Out Movie.

If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it

Say hello to my little rings :) My ONLY rings that I probably will actually wear!

No, I'm not that much of a ring person... But, I think I should once in a while try something new....and that is making jewellery and wearing it...

The process is super easy, just gather some cute buttons and chop the behind down (or sand it with sandpaper) BUT be care full if you have a rock or maybe metal connected with that part, you just glue it on with super glue.

And then just use super glue again and glue it on the ring model.

My mom said they are very dark coloured....yeah, I can't dissagre. But I didn't have that many  interesting buttons which were more colourfull. And I think they can go with any colour :)

Tell me what do you think of them? I want to know your thoughts, suggestions! Comment!

Movie Thursday: Winnie the Pooh

We all know Winnie the Pooh and his friends living in the Hundred Acre Wood. But this time, they have a very important thing to do. They must find Eeyore's missing tail.

But something else happened in the Wood too! Their friend Christopher Robin was ''kidnaped'' by a Bakson. So they make a plan how to catch it. They dig a big hole and wait till the Bakson falls in. But nothing went as planned.

A lovely story with lovely characters. A film for relaxation. No need to say more.

I love Buttons!

I really do!

I have a couple of them...and I can not stop admiring every one of them :)
Buttons are can I say....special? Interesting? Fun? A piece of art?  

I would go with all!

So, I was wondering what to do with all these buttons... And I've seen this idea in a magazine.

And don't worry...I will share the idea and some my creations with you soon! :D

Movie Thursday: 3:10 to Yuma

A small-time rancher Dan Evans ( Christian Dale) agrees to hold a captured outlaw named Ben Wade ( Russel Crowe) who's awaiting a train to go to court in Yuma. A battle of wills ensues as the outlaw tries to psych out the rancher.
Two very hot men in a very good movie!

A western that I like and I'm sure you would like it too!

And I think I have a little crush on Christian Dale...

Part Two: Provence

Part One

Next it was Orange. We stopped to see the theatre, where they still act.

We saw a triumphal arch from the bus and I took pictures of it because I wanted to have at least one good picture...I didn't know we were in a rondo, so yeah...I've got it from all sides :)

Next it was Avignon, the city where had the Pope lived in the 14. century. The Papal palace is really magnificent. To bad they were renovating some of the parts of it, but it was still amazing because of it's size and interesting architecture. 

Of course we had to see the Roman aquaduct, near Avignon (at least I think so, hmmm...)

I immediately fell in love with this house

Only in Avignon I have seen lavender ''field'' and here is my post where are some pictures :)

On our last day, we visited the famous Cannes. You must know the city's film festival.

My brother is a big fan of Akira Kurosawa

We went to the beach to cool ourselves down a bit :)
And at last, we were in Nice. We went to the Chagall Museum, where his fine and interesting works are displayed. You can see more of his work HERE.

And that will be it...Provence is a beautiful destination to see...everything! I would say it is totally opposite of Tuscany (  if you hadn't seen yet, you can see my Three days in Tuscany post, not so many pictures tho...) because of the turism... But if you like bigger towns with more to see, I think Provence would be good for you :) Oh, and be sure you go to the countryside too! Don't be like me, and don't see the lavender fields...that is a shame if you do not do it...Trust me I know!

Well, I hope that you liked my little two part presentation of my short trip to France :)
