Petit Tricot Giveaway! [Closed]



From the very moment I saw this mint headband by Petit Tricot, I fell in love with it! I was lucky enough to see it while being created! Decorated with a cream bow on top, it's adorable and warm enough for the cold days to come!

Petit Tricot is a small effort, my mom and I started, to make handmade knitted items (from gloves to socks, and ornaments to jumpers) widely known and maybe challenge people to start creating their own knitted things! The brain of this whole thing is my mom, who is the creator of all these beauties! As for me, I still got a long way ahead of me to perfect my skills, but I am enriching our collections with tiny crocheted or cross stitched items!!


To enter the giveaway:
You must be a follower of my blog or tumblr and like the Petit Tricot facebook page. After that, leave me a comment with your e-mail and you're in! If you want an extra chance to win, reblog on tumblr or share via Facebook or Twitter and then leave me a comment telling me you did so!

 The giveaway is closing on Thursday, the 6th December!

 Good luck, everyone!

Cupcakes and letters..

cupacake and letter nights.

Nostalgia today hit zenith! I spent my day studying a teeny tiny bit, writing and sending letters, listening to some good music, reading F.Scott Fitzgerald, watching Downton Abbey and finally baking 16 wonderful cupcakes! Seems that I couldn't help myself, and despite the fact that there wasn't enough light in my room, I decided to take a photo! 

 Anyone passing by, can come over for a sweet little treat!!

And there, night came in.

Rose and words.

It was passed from one bird to another,
the whole gift of the day. 
The day went from flute to flute, 
went dressed in vegetation,
in flights which opened a tunnel 
through the wind would pass
to where birds were breaking open 
the dense blue air -
and there, night came in. 

 from "Bird", by Pablo Neruda.

Bois de Cambre.
Le Bois de la Cambre, Bruxelles.

I am back to my routine and I'm trying hard to adapt to my schedule! I left for one week to Belgium - it was my eldest brother's birthday! This time, apart from Brussels, I also visited Leuven, Waterloo and I went for a tiny 3-hour trip to Amsterdam!As always Brussels is a calm and easy-going city, but not as easy-going and vivid as Amsterdam!

 This time I didn't take many photos, since I was all day long with my brothers having a blast! Now I am back, spending time with beloved ones, trying to study, avoiding to study and read books, watch films, take photos, crochet or take a walk instead!Seems like my tumblr blog will be rather active again!!

 I watched Paraisos Artificiais (brazilian) and Poulet aux prunes (french) lately and they were both amazing and I recommend them! 

 NEWSFLASH! Next week I'll have a giveaway in my blog, so stay tuned! Until then, you can participate at a fantastic giveaway at Forest Dreams !!

Sunday mornings..

Sundays are a bliss - both during daylight or night. I passed mine rather passively, but listening to some good music, reading a good book and enjoying fresh fruits, is always a good treat, even if you have more than enough time to think endlessly..
