I've just finished revamping my entry lamphade, what do you think? Some time ago, I bought an Art Rebels' Brakig lamp at Ikea (like this one on Bubblemint) and I found out that it was the same yellow than my old cylinder lampshade so I tought to insert the new inside the old and to play with some decorations. This is what I got!

With sunny days at the door, what's better than biking freely with sandals and flowers in the basket? And...if you need to change your bike's tires, you could use the old ones to make a stamp.

Have you seen Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel? I finally did and I was enchanted as millions of people before me. I'm also charmed by all the visuals projects realized around this movie, if you don't know them yet, take the time to visit at least the Akademie Zubrowka or to listen to Alexandre Desplat's soundtrack.
Here is the list:
The story is freely inspired by Stefan Zweig’s memoir “The World of Yesterday,” an autobiography that he wrote in exile in the early forties, soon before his suicide. More on The New Yorker.
Alexandre Desplat composed the soundtrack. More on ABKCO Records. Listen to it on Spotify.
Courtesan au Chocolat:
Learn to make your own Mendl’s Courtesan au Chocolat from here.
L'Air de Panache has been really bottled by Nose (limited edition).

Today is the International Workers' Day in Italy (...and in many other countries) so I'm leaving for the weekend but I leave you some tips to spend some nice hours:
- Don't let David Thorne amuse alone (surely he's not alone, he has millions of readers - I'm one:)
- Diy this genial suitcase picnic table and speaker system.
- Make some Meyer lemon meringues + Spring Spritzer.
- Organize a balloon party!
- Steller seems to be the app of the moment, what do you think? Leave a comment here or on facebook and if you have created a story with it, write the link.
- May is the month of roses and there are many events about it in the gardens around. Take the time for a visit. I will go here.
