EN: This year, although we waked a lot through forests and on the hills, the wild mushrooms yield was not that rich. And being nostalgic after this delicious forest gifts, I painted these earrings, also as a mini-guide for the foragers, a chic and fashionable one, too:)
EN: Anyway, my gatherer need was satisfied, I can not complain. Our apple orchard, although it didn't fruit that well, it still gives us plenty of delicious and various fruits and the sunny days took us out for picking them.
EN: Our little garden is still producing and the cherry tomatoes experiment proves to be a success. They are very strong plants, with little demands and they offer a lot of yield with little care.
EN:And with autumn being still young, I believe that the mushrooms will show up, so I can hardly wait for some trips in the woods of Bucovina.

EN: Sometimes (often), Valentin and I talk about how we will leave on the sea, towards a treasure island, in an adventure like the ones in Mark Twain's books. We will make friends to the pirates, party with the locals and sail along the shores, landing in the most exotic harbors.
EN: And before we venture to the sea (I still have some fears to deal with), we sail the country's roads, through these magical lands, that get me surprised each time: such various landscapes, so many different people.
EN: An enchanted land we found in the Apuseni Mountains, at Rosia Montana.
EN: I wished to see the sunset, from up the hill, but the quietness soothed by the sound of the cows and the crickets, topped with the fresh air after the rain, kept me in the land of dreams and that sleep was one to remember. Still, at 7 in the morning I saw one of the most beautiful views, with the mountain peeks reaching up from the fluffy fog.

EN: I painted a "hora" (it's a Romanian traditional dance in which people join hands and form a circle), as the symbol of community and collaboration, because I know and I believe that us, humans, need each other and we feel the best when we are together.
EN: Also together we enjoyed the last holiday days with the wonderful children from "The Fountain of Hope" and we celebrated the beautiful beginning of autumn through fun and creative activities.
EN: We shaped out of Fimo creatures from other worlds and had lots of fun creating stories about them.
EN: We climbed, we swing, because a little monkey business is always healthy:)
EN: We found the perfect recipe for the giant soap ballons
EN: We challenged our dexterity in archery
EN: We painted wood and ourselves
EN: And we closed this beautiful festival around the fire, with music, dance, happiness and fire baked potatoes.
