I live for these pastries, where I live there is not much around, but about 20mins later down the hill there are all these commercial centers, which I normally ignore and must walk by every morning to get to the workshop, until one day I found a Persian Bakery, since then I go past there whenever I can, and always try something new, the flavors are to die for..
This is a photo of this morning where I live, here you can see where I usually sit down and eat,read or list from, and Luna coming over to see what I’m doing.
Have a nice Sunday! today I have a french movie that I’ve been trying to watch since Thursday called “Cache” with Juliette Binoche, supposed to be a really good and I will list here and there some new items in the shop..taking it easy have a long week ahead of me..
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a month now..
Few posts back I mentioned a new beginning
All happened so fast, until now I am really getting to enjoy it.
What happened is I moved to the little town I dreamed about, and I’ve worked for over a year to get to.
Not only that but I came here with the smallest expectations, I was hoping to get a little place one bedroom,room for at least my workshop.. and then thank you to an incredible god sent new friend , who didn’t only helped me to find the house but also to realize I deserved it..
I live here now:
And it’s by far the prettiest place I’ve ever lived on, back in CR I had a nice little house but it was empty , I was going through this minimalist stage in my life where I thought I didn’t need anything but my workshop,a fridge a stove and my bed..and I’ve been taught to be grateful for what I have so I’ve never asked for much.
I guess I’ve always had this little fear, everything I do , everywhere I go has to be with the money in my purse.. because of that fear of not selling jewelry anymore of something happening and having no sales to back me up ((( I know I shouldn’t think of this)))..
Since jewelry is my only income I live with that fear, but this last month living in this place, making it my own has actually given me the strength to have more confidence and not think about it..
How could I? , I am doing what I love in a place I love and have friends who lift me up and make me smile, I couldn’t ask for anything more and the realization of this I guess is what is confusing, when you’ve been working for years and running for years I guess you get used to that and when it’s time to enjoy what you worked for you kind of have that feeling of there is more to do.
I’m happy also because nowwww my friends and family are coming over to Guatemala! there is a place to stay! also a place I can tell people come over, drink coffee and search for stones! ahh!
Now there is nothing more to do for me, but enjoy and grow.. make better pieces and work with love.
And well I can’t show you the 239 photos I took of the house but my 2 favorite spots the living room:
And the roof:
I go up there every morning and every afternoon, there is this breeze that always runs through there and I look up and is just too much haaa!
That’s all, hope to be blogging more often have too much to tell you and show you.
I feel blessed
If I could get one like this would be the best choice hahaha! I can dreamm..
I’m looking for a house with room but I think it’s so annoying to move specially over the years more and more things come my way , so it’s more things to move around a bigger truck.. and fixing things up..
I think privacy is one of the most important things, walk around in whatever clothes if you want clothes.. put any music on, any scent on.. don’t wash the dishes until tomorrow if you want, have wine in the fridge and candles everywere..a house reflects taste.
One thing is for sure no roomates, I’ve had so many problems with people , one in particular who did a lot of noise with his girlfriend.. (not worth mentioning details)
I like peace and calm and cooking, and no people using my jewellery or conditioner!!! hahaha…!
So yes the search begins.. I won’t move unless I find something flawless. My last place the living room wall was a mirror all the way to the roof so not as I am a vanity freak but for dancing and yoga was like having a studio home..
I’m very positive with the changes this year!
