Raindrops in the garden

Spring rain. I took a walk in my mother's garden to capture the delicacy of the moment.
This is a lemon flower

and this is an apple blossom that in Italy is called "mela cotogna" that is almost impossible to find in the shops. It is a pity beacuse with those apples you can make fantastic jam or yelly or a spicy cutney that in northen italy is called "mostarda" and is fantastic with your simple stew or simply with ricotta cheese and rustic home made bread.

LACE TATTER EARRINGS - CITY GOTHIC BLACK

I have learened tatttering  long time ago from an old lady in Venice. In italian it is called "chiaccehrino" meanigng "chatting" because the noise made when you work with the tools is like that of lady chatting ( or gossiping) together.
I have made several centerpieces, but now I have applied this tecnique to jewelry for this City Gothich Black Lace. I think it came out very weel, a lightweigh pair of earring with a "precence" that will nto go unnoticed.
