New website

Starting tomorrow Tuesday 27th October, 2009; I will be posting at
Clicking there will take you to a whole new website where my current website and this blog have merged.
So, just this time -pleaseprettyplease- update your Bloglines/favorites, etc and join me on the other site. Lots of new things going on there. Still working on some stuff but we are ready to roll...

We've moved! --->


Hello all!
Im busy finishing some orders and the website. I think this is the last week that you will come here. Soon, just typing you will land in the blog/website/shop. Much easier. I just need to fine tune the last details. I'm importing all the posts from this blog to the new one. Hopefully it will be done soon so we can have a give away to inaugurate the other "home". All these has to happen relatively soon since I'm leaving in a couple of weeks. Worry not, you won't have to miss me. I will be typing but from the southern hemisphere. Might even turn out to be entertaining and interesting. Different adventures.

Ok so... back to work. Have a nice monday everyone.

Remember, soon: for the blog/website/shop too!

Friday' s links

This blog has been quiet this week, but not because I haven't been working. In fact, I've been editting, resizing pictures, learning HTML, discussing with the desginer (aka my husband) and that sort of stuff because I've decided to unify all the blogs and websites I have into one thing. Intead of having Florcita's art blog (this one), plus florcita'news blog which comes attached to my website; I've moved everything to one place where there are sections with info, galleries...etc. So everything together, easy to navigate. Otherwise I spend so much time updating everything (or neglecting it) that... better get organized.

It's Friday again so here is a link for you all to enjoy. This is the trailer of a BBC/Disney nature documentary turned into a film. I saw it on tv when the documentary came out (2007 I think it was) and we loooooved it. We later bought the movie because it has great photography, beautiful scenery of the most far away corners of the world, my kid loves looking at the animals and most importantly it reminds us that we humans are not alone here. We are also part of an ecosystem we need to care for...because we depend on it.
I don't know if I'm the only one who cries with this nature documentaries but sometimes as the camera shoots a mama bear with her cub, I feel close to that female. I know, I sound a bit crazy. But we all look at our cubs with the same eyes.

Have a nice weekend...

Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Azul

Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Azul
Originally uploaded by Marian Florcita


Where I come from, in Argentina, people like painting their houses in bright colors. I could voice different theories such as "that helps bright up your city in winter when everything is dark and grey", "it's a way to show your individuality/creativity", "you are just showing off" .... :)
I don't know. What I do think is that -at least here in The Netherlands- life would be so much brighter in the long months of winter if there was some color on the streets other than the brown of bricks and the grey of the sky.
So I looked around in Flickr for some blue houses (the one on the top left corner, is Frida Khalo's "La casa azul"). And these were my favorites.

All the credit to the photographers who took these pictures. If you want to see the photos larger in with credits, click on the mosaic.

If you want to join the mosaic fun, follow the link to Mitsy's blog.

Remember that DaWanda has a discount week which I am joining. So from today until Sunday, there will be a 15% discount on all shops were you haven't purchased before. If you haven't shoped at Florcita now is the time!

Magnum Wrap and Dawanda discount

I've been busy this weekend. All of a sudden everyone is celebrating their birthdays around here so we are jumping from party to party... which is fun.
I did manage to squeeze in some work and I tried this gorgeous merino Kap I recently bought. Soft and warm...but really really soft. I wanted to make something simple... a few flowers in a field... just white and red and some accents on grey. That's it. It ended up being way bigger than I thought it'd be and it's a mix I think between a warm wrap for you and a throw for home decoration.

More pics here.

On other news, DaWanda has a discount week which I am joining. So from today until Sunday, there will be a 15% discount on all shops were you haven't purchased before. The discount price is already set on the webpage so what you see is what you pay. If you've never purchased from me and were waiting for lower prices...well, here is your chance.
