And the answer is...

Remember the geography quiz?

The answer is Verona, Italy!
The Pharaohs and Egyptian statues were the prop for Aida, the opera performed at the Arena.

Baking for the weekend

Pineapple upside-down cake

Melt 1/2 hg butter with 5-6 teaspoons of sugar until brown and pour in a 23cm (9 inch) round pan.
Drain 1 can of pineapple - keep the syrup, you will need it! - and arrange the slices at the bottom of the pan over the brown sugar.
1 hg butter
1 hg sugar
1 egg
2 hg flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
milk and pineapple syrup... until the cake batter is very soft.
Pour over the pineapples and bake for 40-60 minutes in a 200°C (390°F) preheated oven.
Let it cool down a bit, then turn upside-down on a serving plate. 
Cut a slice, eat and repeat...

Drink and knife

I had one of those weekends.
But don't you worry, I haven't used that knife... just the drink!

Yellow is for autumn harvest

pumpkin and pears

The soup has a creative touch: black olive croutons to add an intense flavor to the delicate cream.
Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Alien in a pond

A quiet pond can hide cute inhabitants, bright colors

and mysterious forms!

If there is a small lake or a pond in your town, go and take some pictures, autumn colors won't let you down!

Orange and brown

donuts and a cup of coffee... never enough!

Scream your love...


I am a big fan of stickers artists. They turn a simple stroll into a fun treasure hunt!

[this post is dedicated to two friends of mine... hehehe]

Venice Biennale, more favorites 3.

Liina Siib's project "A Woman Takes Little Space" - Estonian Pavilion, Palazzo Malipiero

I am so glad I went back to Venice to visit the pavilions of the participating countries I haven't had the time to visit in July. 
Siib's project consists of six rooms displaying photographs, installations and videos. Women are the focus of the artist's social commentary.

More of my favorites HERE and HERE!

Balloons, according to Venice

Blown in glass, of course!

Have a good weekend, do something fun and relaxing.
I will organize my new photos of Venice (AGAIN, I know, I can't stay away from that place!),
go to a multi-purpose party -- friends moving, other getting married,
bake a cake and read my favorite magazine.

Music for the weekend

On a rainy Friday morning, this is the music I want to listen to

so cheerful!

Vintage night

Last Sunday I wend to a spectacular vintage event in a medieval town! Sounds fun, doesn't it?
Now I want to organize a vintage party... just as an excuse to buy a vintage dress, of course!

Stocking up for the cold weather

hot water bottle for my cold cold hands and feet

Autumn colors

The first few days of autumn are displaying

chard with a mixture of stem colors, paragliding over treetops and baskets of dried fruits
so far, a very bright season!
