A little less than 2 months ago, I promised you that I’d announce some great news soon. Today, time has come to lift the veil. In about 7 months, we’ll be living in one of Europe’s southern regions, where the sky on most winter days is looking like this,

and have tea and write outside in early spring, without having to wear a jacket and layers and layers of clothes.

We will be living in a small village, next to the river Verdon and rather close to the city where you can see this mountain (in the background)

that has been an inspiration to Paul Cézanne for several times.

From next autumn on, French Provence will be my daily canvas. I feel so happy and grateful as I have been dreaming of emigrating for years and years: I love the country of ‘du pain, du vin et du boursin’, its diversity in landscapes, cities and villages, its poetical language, its adorable nature and its joie de vivre.

Since today, one thing is for sure: the birds in our French garden will have a home

as soon as we will live in our new house.

One of my Loves and Muses -and probably the most important one- is light: I love to play with it and it always inspires me. My absolute favourite is the natural one: that’s one of the reasons why I really like -and often feel the need- to travel. Evening light in the south of France is very different from the one we have here, nights in Ecuador feel magical because of the Southern Cross, the beauty of a sunset over the Mont Blanc is really touching. I could go on like this for hours and hours.

Not only natural light fascinates me: as I often treat myself with adding some changes to the in- and exterior of our little home, I also have a whole stock of lamps, little lights and candles at our place. The one presented above is the newest: Veritas recently sold some of its visual display props and I found a lot of treasures, e.g. this tube lamp that I’ve got in green and in purple now.

Warm greetings from one happy lady with a twinkle in her eyes

I haven’t been here for a while as life seems to have taken over.

Hope to be back soon on a more regular basis.

In the meantime, I wish you all the season’s delights!
