… well THAT’s an understatement! Bucketfuls of rain came pouring down, lightening bolts split the sky open and just when you thought it was all over, it would start again.
The Civil Protection Department issued several warnings for people to stay at home this morning as several roads were flooded, some of them literally turned into fast flowing rivers. In some areas rubble walls broken and debris lay scattered on the roads.
Uncommon sights seen due to the heavy downpours included cars being carried by the water down a valley and coffins floating away after an undertaker’s shop was flooded.
Unsurprisingly, it’s a very wet and stormy moodboard today:
Exciting news from Frances J Melhop who has managed to raise enough funds to travel from New Zealand to Italy for her residency. Full steam ahead now to help enable her project. Click on the link below to help her along:
I’ve searched for trees from the European Street Team for my moodboard today. Here are some of my favourites:
Shopping can be such fun, especially when you’re sitting comfortably at home and really helping someone out when you’re doing it!
I bought some really lovely embroidered buttons handmade by Deep Indigo and donated to the Europe For Charity shop last week, and over the weekend I bought two wonderful prints from an amazing photographer who has just been awarded an artist’s residency with the MIRA foundation in Puglia Italy.
It’s a dream come true for Frances J Melhop, already voted among the top 200 photographers worldwide, but a dream that she needs help to turn into reality, because unless she manages to raise enough money to fly from Earthquake-hit New Zealand to Italy by the end of this week, the dream will slip right through her fingers.
In an effort to rapidly raise funds for her project she is offering a Buy-One-Get-One-Free on images of equivalent value in both her shops. Check out her blogpost for more details and go shopping for something really special at Matchstickgirl and Enchanted Pond.
Once again my picks for the Monday Moodboard are all from the EuropeForCharity shop on Etsy. Lots of beautiful, diverse items to choose from. Have fun shopping and we donate all proceeds (less Etsy fees) to charity. Please visit the shop for full details!
I’ve just donated to the brand new EuropeForCharity shop set up by Baahar this weekend, featuring items for sale from artists and crafters of the Etsy European Street Team. Proceeds will be used for relief whenever a humanitarian crisis emerges.
