The icing on the cake

One of the reasons I went to Paros was to visit  "The icicng on the cake".  It's the most amazing children's store that now carries my work. Maria Kavvadia, the owner, has two stores, one here in Athens and her flagship store in Paros. Most items in the store are handmade and organic, that she picks out on her trips from  all over the world!  I was walking by her Athens store one day, and  I was mesmerized by the storybook design. It reminded me of  a gallery for kids!!  I'm so glad I went inside!
 Ok, now I have to unpack my suitcase and get ready for my next adventure. Frankfurt..see you on Sunday!!

I had the most creative morning today! I discovered this cute cafe bar called "Pebbles" and spent a few hours painting in my journal. It was early in the day and I was the only customer there. Just me, my journal and jazz music playing on the radio!! Sheer heaven!
Isn't this the most beautiful church?!

All you need..

Yay!!!  I'm so exited to be posting from the beautiful Greek island Paros!! After that horrend heat wave in Athens, here I am, sitting in a cafe by the bluest water and feeling the breeze on my face.. just wonderful to be able to get away. It's a whole different world here on the island!  It's like a fairy tale! The houses are whitewashed with narrow cobblestone streets. So romantic..
My painting is inspired by a very old church here in Paros. I made a photo tranfer of it and was quite pleased with it. Hope you like it! It's also my entry for MMM.
Next week I'll posting from....Frankfurt!!  Can't believe my luck! Two beautiful trips in one week! My bestest friend is going to pick up an award for her company and make a speach and I'll be tagging along for..moral support,hehehe.  Thanks Myrto :)) I'm thrilled about this trip, since I've never been to Germany before!  And since all good things come in threes...please, please God let the next one be Milan or Paris!!
I send you my love, dear friend.


I'm so glad I was able to capture this picture with the donkey! The old man sells vegetables and fruits with a little help from his friend, mr.donkey!! 
I love all these old churches!!
That's me wearing one of my shibori outfits. So perfect for the islands!
What I love most here in Paros,  are the narrow cobblestone streets. Everything looks like it's from a fairy tale and very romantic..
