{Passion for Van Cleef and Arpel´s Necklace; Art is here}

{When will the Summer Light come?}

"I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils".

{Stacionary for Ladies}

As you know, stacionary is a way of show how much importance we give to us. I know it is not cheap, in "Smythson" you can buy it from $250 and if you send too much notes and letters you will have to buy stacionary again in only two months. But, anyway, that isn´t a problem because today you can personalize your stacionary with a good computer design program (I have used only microsoft word).One day i heared :“Writing paper for a man should always be strictly conservative.”

{A Paris Apartment Tour}

What type of lady do you imagine living here? I see a bohemian artist lady. I specially like the light of the apartment - essential for me- and the mix of pinks and antiques.

{My Favourite Film Ending}

“I realized what a terrific person she was, and… and how much fun it was just knowing her; and I… I, I thought of that old joke, y’know, the, this… this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, “Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy; he thinks he’s a chicken.” And, uh, the doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn him in?” The guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y’know, they’re totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and… but, uh, I guess we keep goin’ through it because, uh, most of us… need the eggs” — Woody Allen, Annie Hall
