My name is Vic and I live in beautiful South of France, Europe.

1) Five Happy Moments

* well I'm in love right now, so i feel very happy every day!

* but the small things matter, too: good music, fresh flowers etc...

* when learning something new

* when travelling to a new and interesting place

* this one is for future surprises!

2) Small Doses of Happiness

I drink water! when hydrated properly, i get less to no-headaches, and feel less grumpiness

i listen to good music, whether upbeat ou smooth, depending to my mood

i have fresh flowers every week from the farmers' market

i raise my eyes and watch frequently the sky, the moon, the clouds

Oh, and Happy, Happy Friday!

Hello Lovelies,

 "Together Now" source unknown

I haven't posted here in awhile... I was busy with my life, and my gearing into healthy livin' and all... Things that are important to me of course, but not very relevant for this blog!

I do recommend the SparkPeople site though! No fad diets there, just healthy habits for "making your life an adventure". and it's all for free!

I wanted to share with you this beautiful image (posted above) but was reluctant since I had saved it on my computer but forgot its source! Proper linking to the original source and crediting is very important to me, and it is widely discussed in the blogosphere right now, with pinterest and all!

I have found this great tip (scroll down to #7) on how to find the proper source of an image via the "Google images" feature. Will try it and will let you know... (edit: ooh! it doesn't work for this specific image!)

Enjoy you pet caterpillar, relax, and have a great weekend!

Many Loves

Hello Lovelies,

I just found online, on the Cabinet of Wonders blog, and by mere chance, a wonderful short video featuring the Book of Kells. This little gem reunites some of my many loves: love for Medieval manuscripts (I studied Medieval History and Art History in college), love for dandelion seeds floating around in the foreground, and for beautiful butterflies, of course.

The Secret of Kells - Aisling's Forest video

Of course the Book of Kells is full of swirls, spirals and vortex, which I love, too.

What I Really Love: Drawing Tea Scenes.

Hello Lovelies!

"Let yourself be silently drawn 
by the strange pull 
of what you really love. 

It will not lead you astray."


 Here is one of my newest tea doodles:

I am drawing my inspiration from this particular pinboard I created.
It includes the following image:

This is a kettle that I plan to draw/paint son (found here).

And my current motto is:
