Happy 2015 everyone!!
I hope you all had a good time, celebrating with the people you love and I wish you all a most creative and prosperous New Year, with many blissful moments.
In Greece, the tradition is to bake a cake, called Vasilopita(St Basil’s Pie) and eat it just after the arrival of the New Year . Inside, there is a coin which brings good luck to the one who finds it, in his/her slice.
A little lady was the lucky one this year and she really deserved it because she had made a lot of work preparing for New Year’s celebration at home, with friends and family.
The beginning of a New Year ‘requires’ new calendars at home and at work.
So, just before the beginning of 2015, I spent some time making three new calendars for three female members of the family.
I used my beloved decoupage on canvas, some acrylic colour and varnish, and here you are:
A French style calendar for a country kitchen,
A more romantic and girlish one for a kitchen or room in hues of pink and pastel colours and
A garden scene, in different hues of green, yellow, ochre and red, which reminds me of lazy spring and summer afternoons, drinking coffee or tea, smelling the sweet smell of gardenias and jasmine.
Till next time,
