It was a delicious early Autumn day when we took these photos at Sa'dabad garden.

And today... 
I am struggling to neglect the pollution. I wonder if anyone else in this city has gotten used to it. Because no one even talks about it anymore.  But for me... it's too heavy to breathe.
I am so tired of you, Tehran pollution! So so tired ...

p.s. Thank you so much for your beautiful comments on the last post. This is really nice to have such wonderful readers/friends! :)

Everyday it starts when I open my eyes. When the first ray of light is felt. 
And when the air can be heard. 

It's another day.
And no, there is still no magic.

The universe is in current. The whole world is moving. 
And I am there just watching; static.

They don't wait for you. The world doesn't wait for you.
You have to throw yourself into the existence. You have to move. You have to act. And not to wait for a magic. There's no magic happening out there.

You have to accept.
Magic is in you. Magic is you. 

This photo is my favorite from a new developed roll of film. My mom's hands, everyday life's magic.
More film photos to come! xo

We spent our Yalda night with lovely family members and friends.
With pomegranate, watermelon,  nuts and sweets.
We spent our Yalda night missing ones who are really dear to our hearts.
With candles and smiles. Hafez and lights.

And today is the first day of winter. So happy winter to you all!

Unpublished photos from last year, Yalda night. You can see the post here.

Hello my friends!
Tonight is Yalda; the Iranian winter solstice celebration! And I must say it's been always my favorite night. :) 
I will update my blog with fresh photos so soon! 

May your longest night of the year be warm and full of little happy things! xo

Toast catalogue

After weeks of waiting for rain, it finally arrived and put a smile on my face. 
I opened the window, the cold windy rain touched my face. I breathed deep. And suddenly everything looked better...

Don't you agree that one can never get tired of colors in nature? For me they are always so inspiring to look at; so here is another "natural" inspiration board. To treasure the fact that we are all the same; we are all the nature. 

Have a beautiful day. 


Jodi ~ That's so good. I don't hate natural wood color but well... changing the trim is always the best! :) Love to see the renovation. 
kitchi ~ Yes, who wouldn't?!
Daisy ~ :-)
Julochka ~ Yes, so very Scandinavian. And I am a big fan of it.
Wendy ~ Thank you, and welcome! :-)
Caroline ~ Thank you! Hugs.
Sarah ~ Aren't white spaces so good?! I love them.

Looking through Per Gunnarsson's photos I found lots of inspiration the other day. White and light gray rooms with a little touch of color always catch my eye.


kitchu ~ That's right, but I guess there was really no pollution back then. It's getting worse and worse everyday. 
Caroline ~ Thanks! :-)
Jane ~ Oh thank you Jane. I will send you the address so soon. 
Valerie ~ Welcome to this little place! And yes I really need some oxygen from your snowy place! That would be so fresh and lovely. :)
Elisabelle ~ Thanks dear.
Lila ~ Thank you dear Lila. How is the air in Dubai right now? 
Amber ~ wow that sounds great! Maybe you can send me some rain but I promise I won't send any pollution back for you, just a little sunshine, deal?! 
Parisa ~ ممنون پریسا جان. با آرزوی باران

Two weeks of unhealthy pollution levels in Tehran has made everyone sluggish and dull these days. It's hard to breath, really. Asking for rain is all we can do right now. 
So... Extra oxygen, anybody?!

From Aubin & Wills almanac.

Hi blog world! 
I am back here after a very unexpected and long break. There were many problems to access the Internet in this new house. But finally solved! 

I hope you are all fine, my bloggy friends. It feels good to be back to you.

Hello beautiful readers.
We finally found our house, so I am so very busy packing stuff. 
Naturally I can't take any photos these days, but I will be trying my best to have good inspiration posts for you now and then.

Today I have these lovely Fall-ish photos by photographer Rachel Whiting. I think I am going to use beautiful Fall leaves for some little projects this year. It's already making me excited!

A lovely night out with friends.

Baharnaz, I know you're reading this. Why don't we have any photo of you?!

He said this is a long time no picture of us.
He was right.

The blog was going to be an impersonal type.
I didn't want it like that.

So here we are!
And we're happy that you are here too.

If so... please blog with your heart.

Thank you.

It's a beautiful Friday evening. I am enjoying the weather wearing a light cardigan, sipping my hot tea with milk and watching people through the window. It's weekend and families are going to the park. And kids have joy in their voices.
Happy Friday!

Hello lovelies! How is life there in your corner of the world? Here is a little messed up. We're slightly packing but haven't found the new place yet. So these days aren't my favorite. I am so looking forward to be settled down again.

Today I have some lovely links to share with you!

+ 2 BY FRYD is out! This is awhile that I am following this inspiring blog so her second online magazine made me totally happy. You can even download this lifestyle magazine.

+ Strawberry Mascarpone Cream Cake. Haven't tried the recipe yet, but that looks oh so very yummy!

+ Are you a horse lover? Or an Iceland lover?! These twelve photos will catch your eyes for sure.

+ Currently I look for home inspirations a lot. Finding this tumblr blog was a nice accident.

+ Painting on Books by Mike Stilkey. Neat!

Wish you a beautiful day, or night with a warm cup of coffee in hand and a heart full of joyfulness.
