giant onion

Yesterday a reader of the blog, Annette http://myrosevalley.blogspot.com.es/ 
told me that we have many good products in the Mediterranean.
And it is absolutely true!
Today we went to my parents.
They have a small vegetable garden but it gives great products.
They grow many vegetables in a few square meters, especially now in summer.
Always have something to offer ... tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant ...
can never miss the eggs from their chickens!


 Today there haunted by a cousin of my mother, Benjamin.
He said "I go to my garden to collect some onions and now to come back."
And he's gone. And he has returned ...
has returned with a giant onions!


I have not been avoided and I made few photos.
Can not see very well the greatness of the onion, but I can assure you that is GIANT.


I've weighed in the balance will weigh on us, the bathroom.
The onion weighs ... 1700 kg!!!


Amazing!!!
 I have never seen an onion so great!
And the other two weigh 700 grams each ...
And most importantly: have a nice flavor and not much bite.
Yummy!

All straight from the vegetable garden to the table ...

The Mediterranean diet is great ...

One day I will speak of the oil that is produced for thousands of years
here in my country ... extra virgin olive oil,
the liquid gold for excellence!

Thank you for following me!

Thanks for visiting my world of wool and other nice things!

crocheted garland


Hello, my followers!
Every day I'm more excited with the blog!
Each new follower I am happy lot!
I want to thank you that you stop here for a while!
I feel flattered and I can only give you thanks ... thanks ... THANKS!!!

I continue with small projects.
Next month my daughter will be a year ...
I have seen many times crocheted garlands by Internet
and I decided to do something. Something simple, with square...


I think these are the colors of the Brazilian flag, right?
Belong together with the cotton of which I bought recently.
They are a little thin ... I would have done before work if they were thicker ...
But I like it very cheerful, crocheted garlands I think we can be good!


I still do not know what to write ...

"FELICITATS CARLOTA"
(CONGRATULATIONS CARLOTA)

"FELIÇ ANIVERSARI CARLOTA"
(HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLOTA)

"AVUI ÉS EL MEU ANIVERSARI"
(TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY)

For the moment I was knitting ...

after lunch ...
without noise ...
IS MY TIME!


I want to welcome new followers!

little bag of crochet

I do not have much time lately and I do small projects...
Yesterday after lunch, when they slept,
I began to do a test to make a flower and, finally, came this little bag of crochet...


I was very excited to start something and finish it in few hours ...
it is not much but I was promised to show you all my projects ... even this tiny!





What can I keep in this little bag of crochet?
tissues ... soothing cream for the lips ... house keys ... the mobile phone...
I will find something useful, the bags were always good to keep things!

You've made a bag so small?

Thanks for visiting me!

tragedy in my garden


Has been a disaster ... seemed the end of the world ...
Yesterday there was a hail storm.
My beloved garden ... my beloved plants ...
my succulent plants ... my ceramic ... my pots ...
everything was hit by hail ...
a total disaster ... 





Fell when the first stone I could shelter the four begonias.
Only this...


Began to fall very large stones.
I had to stop the rescue of plants.
Dropped stones the size of a tennis ball!!!
I had never seen anything like it!!!




My baby was crying because she was terrified by the noise.
It was a tragedy for my garden ...





This year I had cared so much ...
This year I had so spoiled ...
you had seen the lovely plants that I had ...
I'm sad with this bleak landscape ...
many hours of work I had invested in my little garden ...
to comfort us, we think that we are well ...
yes, but it saddens me to what happened ...


Well, today the sun rises and we must move forward ...

vintage shirt collar


I admit that since my daughter was born I learned to love the color pink in all shades.
I had never much liked the color pink, now I love the girl ... sometimes even for me ...



I also admire for a long time everything looks a vintage ...
I saw online that fantastic shirt collars inspired me.
With cotton wool that I bought the other day in Yvestown
I made ​​this vintage shirt collar.



Like you? Yeah, I know it's very classic but ... what you want!
I'm learning and I did not know how to do better ...
I will be brave enough to leave the street as classical?

before...

after...

Long live the Pink!

Long live the vintage!

I think that crochet has made me a little crazy ... yes, but always with joy!

Thanks for visiting me in my world of wool!
