My Favorite Book

This is my favorite book.

The favoritest…est…est of all.

It was absolute love at first sight when I first saw it.

I had instantly gotten amazed by its wonderful, vibrant colors.

And by the wonderful golden edges.

“Varázslatos mesék” means Magical Fairy-tales… this much I know.

And we are speaking Hungarian here, ladies and gentlemen.

Except, I don’t understand any other word inside the book.

Not a SINGLE word.

Because I just don’t speak Hungarian.

When I look at this page I see nothing… there’s no meaning to me at all.

… but this… this makes SO much meaning – the wonderful pictures and illustrations – it’s unbelievable.

The whole book is flooded with the loveliest pictures I have ever seen.

Some are really funny.

Some are dramatic.

Do you know this smart guy?

You surely do.

What a cute little girl.

And what a cute little puppy.

These lovely animals seem to be living in sweet and perfect harmony over there.

What a bliss.

I love these wonderful details – there’s an abundance of them in the book.

So cute.

Look – this is me… chubby and knitting.

Yay – me again, baking – that’s my thing.

I love to thumb through this book and indulge in its wonderful illustrations.

A big THANK YOU to all the people who have put this perfect piece of art together.

(P.S.: Have you noticed?… “Illustrations: Magda”.

Who are you Magda?… Where are you?… I want to be your friend.)

I Am Doomed

This is the last picture your dear Petra had ever taken in her wonderful life…

NOT!

Just joking.

No matter what this looks like it is a project.

A big, fun, well-planned project.

SNAPPING A SNOWBALL IN THE AIR, everybody!

With my lovely nephew Gaby being the co-operator in this big thing.

And let me tell you that we succeeded big time.

Because we are a great team…

That’s what we are.

Everywhere I Look I See Them!

Does it happen to you these days too?

I mean do you also see them everywhere you look?

OK…, you might not know what I am talking about right now.

Just try to examine the picture above that I took yesterday.

Do you see that odd man right in the middle of the frozen lake?

Because that is a large lake you are looking at.

I zoomed it in in case he was too tiny for you to identify.

Yes, that’s him – a snowman (and I’m trying not to pay attention to the crack in the ice leading from the shore towards the snowman and ending exactly next to him).

I just see them everywhere – the snowmen.

And don’t get me wrong here – I appreciate seeing them so often, because that fills my heart with joy.

In my mind, I always try to picture the happy kids who have build the guys.

When kids build snowmen they have to be happy – and then everything is all right with the whole universe.

So I’m slowly getting used to finding them everywhere – in gardens, in front of parking cars, on top of parking cars and, recently, on top of a restaurant table (the table standing outside the restaurant luckily).

Gaby, Blue Mittens And A Snowman

(Update: To see more of my patterns, please visit my ONLINE SHOP!)

 

Recently I’ve finished knitting these blue fingerless mittens for my dear nephew.

I asked him to be a model for a little while and wear the mittens for a teeny photo shoot.

He was very kind and professional and without any hesitation he agreed.

So together we went outside and took some nice pictures.

These mittens are made for some serious use.

They can endure a real tree climbing.

And once you are able to climb a tree you are a real winner!

Wow, what a gorgeous pose.

And what gorgeous fog around you.

And of course, how could we not strike a pose next to our beloved snowman?

Thank you Gaby, it was a pleasure to cooperate with you.

You are a precious friend indeed.
