cassetto



Durante il fine settimana sono stata pigra, niente mini.
Domenica la giornata era troppo bella per stare a casa e infatti siamo andati sulle alture.
Nella foto potete vedere Genova dal campo pratica del Cus Golf. 
Per chi non la conoscesse vi dirò che Genova ha una forma strana: non  cresce intorno ad un centro ma si sviluppa in lunghezza. Infatti è stretta tra mare e colline.
Quella che vedete è a sua massima larghezza. Ciò è fonte di stupore per chi arrivando in aereo la vede per la prima volta : tanti non credono di essere arrivati ad una città.
Oggi invece ho finito di tappezzare il cassetto da tipografo per le mie mini. L'ho trovato, in pessime condizioni, da un robivecchi e come al solito il mio papà ha fatto il miracolo restaurandolo.
Ci sono tanti  vuoti, tanto spazio per nuove mini.

During the weekend I've been lazy, no minis.
Sunday was too much a gorgeous day to stay at home and we've gone to the hills.
In the pic you can see Genoa from the Cus Golf Practice Course.
For those who do not know Genoa I'll say that it has a strange shape: it does not grow around a center but it developes in length. In fact it is squeezed between sea and hills.
What you see is its maximum width. This is source of surprise for those who see it for the first time coming by plane: many do not believe they have arrived to the actual town.
Today I finished to paper my tipesetter drawer. I found it, in very poor conditions, in a thrifty shop and , as usual, my dad has worked out a miracle restauring it.
There are many empty holes, lot of space for new minis.

WOW, Rosanna, what a beautiful view! And SUNSHINE!!!

What a fantastic way to display your little treasures! I couldn't open the picture big though so I couldn't really see all the tiny little things inside the typesetter box :(

Beautiful!
Love your tray. I have one (very old) that I have not hung in years. I had it hanging in the hallway where I use to live and did not like to dust it, so gave that job to my daughter. :)

Mi piace Genova.

Ma mi piace più Firenze. È molto bella quella città.

La prima foto è anché bellissima. La seconda, scusami, non so.

Se vuoi, puoi visitare il mio blog (non so se già andasti da lì). Ora uso un'altra lingua: giapponese. Non aggiungerò più lingue, ora sono nove.

Spero che tu stia bene.

Oh, you lucky girl, I have always wanted a printers tray, but they are very expensive here. What fun you'll have filling it up!

Gorgeous view!
You did a great job on the printers tray, love the wallpaper in it. I just found my printers tray a few weeks ago in my parents attic. It is the first antique I ever bought, I must have been about 12 years old then. I will put it back on the wall soon and fill it with miniatures, just like yours.
