Here we are, back with the never-ending story of the soon-to-be media console.
Part I of this post was very long, but the preparation steps were quite hard and time-onsoleonsuming. This time though I’ll promise I’ll be quick. Continue reading

The new life of a thrifted dresser as a media console Pt. I

1 Sealinthefog The new life of a thrifted dresser as a media console

As you might have realised by now each time we stay in Italy for a bit we put ourselves in the position of doing some huge diy project that we manage to finish just few days before leaving. I am not complaining, at all: we love the things that come up like that, at the very end, without planning, just hard work and fun.

So before moving to Australia one of the various projects we tackled was a media console for Matteo’s mum. Continue reading

DIY dog bicycle basket

My mom (and sister, although she is studying in Padova now, so she is not living at home anymore) has a tiny little dog: Erica. She is a wire haired Dachshund Kaninchen, very tender and loving. She always snuggles on your lap and just wants to be cuddled. She is very little and very good-behaving, so my mom wanted to be able to take her around, also on her bicycle. Continue reading

Last Autumn, while participating at the flea-market of Brugine, where we got rid of as many things as possible before leaving Italy and where we were considered one of the cutest stands of the market (or at least this is what a couple of the other vendors told us: we still don’t know why but it was really sweet of them!), we also visited with a friend a huge and famous antiques market in the same area of Padova.

9 Sealingthefog Mercatino di Brugine Padova Dicembre 2013

As you probably read in this post with some months to plan our move to Jerusalem we were able to actually decide what to leave in Italy. The things that we carefully packed and stored are the ones that we ideally would like to have in our future house, the one we will hopefully have the day we’ll find a place we really like or the place that we wouldn’t mind calling home, at least for a bit.

Our vintage Willer bike turned yellow!

sealingthefog yellow bike 2

You might remember one of the bikes Matteo restored: it was a 70’s Willer bicycle. As you check on the old post he did quite a few things to make it shine, but he tried maintaining its vintage classical look. But then, when we decided to move again we couldn’t keep that bike as well (in addition to mine and his), we decided to sell it. Continue reading
