Summer festivals

Summer is not quite here yet, but what I see is a huge need of outdoor spaces, garlands, market food and laid-back friends.

Summer, we are ready for you!

A (very happy) birthday lunch!

Yesterday was my birthday (100% Gemini, indeed) and this is how I celebrated it.

Sweet peas puree with grilled prawns and edible spoon, grilled sardines (please note the super cute logo drawn with honey and poppy seeds!), mixed berry tart with Chantilly cream! If you are planning to visit the Garda Lake, don't miss a fine meal da Oreste. Now, diet! hahah And happy weekend to you.

The little things

Sometimes the little things are what make the difference.

A window table at Urban Vintage, my favorite coffee shop; their A M A Z I N G red velvet cheesecake; and the most whimsical zine, "i will feast on your whore heart" by M.K. Reed. Yes, life can be as simple as that, sometimes.
What are the little things in your life?

Mille Miglia Historic Car Race

Oh, the beauty of historic cars speeding (oh well, parading) through old Italian towns!
This is Mille Miglia (Thousand Miles), a road race established in 1927 that originally routed from Brescia to Rome.

On May 17th the historic parade visited Verona, Italy.
Shiny cars, leather helmets and huge glasses, what an amazing event!

New York Subway Art

I love seeing the world through Sophie Blackall's dreamy eyes and pencils. 
These are bits of a poster she created for MTA Arts for Transit project.

Oh, the way she beautifully captures the spirit of New York, its contrasts, hilarious moments and secret beauties.
Don't forget to check out her website and her brilliant book "Missed Connections"!

The lady is a tramp

A quite straightforward lady at the Brooklyn Flea!

I think she might need some cash for some body repair work ;)
