Chairs on the brain

Posted by sol in art, I wanted to be an architect

chairs-on-the-brain.jpg

Inspired by my friend April‘s works, I gathered some paint chips and vandalized my 1000 Chairs book (Taschen) and some magazines. The result is rather enjoyable, don’t you think? I’m loving yellow these days, it must be the meds.

facing it, part II

Posted by sol in life

It took me a while to get up and go to see the doctor.

Rationally I knew there was nothing to be ashamed of, still it took me quite a while.

The hardest part was to acknowledge that my symptoms were real and not just my fault: to be irritable, lazy, totally unfocused, emotional, pessimistic.  I used to think that I needed to put my act together and stop whining about not having access to my belongings, a house (yet), a job, friends, money, etc. but I realized that not having access to one’s belongings, a house, a job, friends, money, is a good reason to feel scattered around.

I began taking a very small and increasing dose of paroxetine. The goal is to be less anxious about mh…. well about everything.

Just three more months to go, till our house is ready and we have access to our own life again.

My first birthday as a mother! how nice. My sweet pea gave me the best present: he started finally eating properly!!! Thank youuuu!!

My hubby bought my whole Amazon Wishlist, and I’m so exited I have many great books to read, do and cook.

My brother-in -law gave me the Eames Rocking Chair I have been drooling over for ages, and especially more since Damiano was born.

I’m posting some Eames RAR porn for everyone. Happy birthday!!!!

Miniature Sachers.

Posted by sol in cuisine or at least food on the plate

Tomorrow is my father-in-law’s and my own birthday so what a better occasion to bake some miniature Sacher tortes.

I’m in love with them.

I baked the cake on a large pan, then I cut out the circles with a cookie cutter. I stacked 3 layers together with the apricot jam.
They scream eat me.


They’re not flawless but perfection is boring.
