Trencadís class in Barcelona


Trencadis
The trencadís invented by Antoni Gaudí, is based on tile fragments.

During our holiday in Barcelona, I took a 2 hours class provided by the artist Livia Garreta.
It’s not so easy to arrange the pieces to fill a form. The time went so fast that I didn’t try to make a design … but I succeed in inserting the heart of my website!

I fixed a powerstrip under my desk, but it’s not ergonomic for devices that I regularly connect (laptop, sewing machine …).

With this box, I’m not ashamed to display a powerstrip on my desk and no contortion to use it ;-)

Chinese dragon cake


gateau dragon chinois 03
For her latest decorated cake my daughter had frustrated me “I want something simple.

This year she competed in her brother challenges:
I know you’re very strong (flattery) so I increase the level of the challenge : I want a dragon (ok)… Chinese (oh)… in 3D (gosh :shock: ). But I’m sure you will succeed. (flattery again !!)

I should mention that this year my daughter is 18 years old!
30 friends in a rented room, I must cook 2 Queens of Sheba.
