Latecomer of the colors, made out of Lapis Lazouli (mined in Afghanistan), extremely expensive to produce, used by royalty and rich nobility only by special license, blue was associated with wealth and power, serenity and virtue.

In Egypt, blue was associated with the sky and with divinity. Blue could also protect against evil and misfortune.It was used for the eyebrows on the funeral mask of King Tutankhamun and is still used to make the Eye of God amulet.

Blue glass was manufactured in Mesopotamia and Egypt as early as 2500 BC, and in the Middle Ages blue stained glass were installed in the windows of the cathedrals of Saint-Denis and Chartres. It was also widely used to decorate Byzantine churches,  mosques and palaces in the Islamic World.

King Louis IX of France became the first King of France to regularly dress in blue. The coat of arms of the Kings of France became an azure or light blue shield, sprinkled with golden fleur-de-lis.

No wonder that blue was and still is one of the most fascinating colors.

I’m just amazed of the intensity and richness of this blue, that looks like it hides well kept secrets and mysteries.

Asa…. si a venit si Mosul,¬† cu sacul plin, a coborat pe horn si a impartit cadouri pentru copii cuminti si nu numai,¬† a mancat biscuitii, a baut lapticul,si apoi a plecat cu saniuta trasa de reni ianapoi la Polul Nord sa se apuce de fabricarea cadourilor pentru la anul.

Sooo…Santa came with his bag full of presents for nice children, ate the cookies, drank the milk and left on his sleigh pulled by reindeers for the North Pole to get started on the next year’s presents.

Se spune ca atata timp cat exista iubire in lume si atata timp cat cineva mai crede in el, Mosul va continua sa existe si sa ne pregateasca surprize nenumarate pentru cei mici si cei mari.

They say that as long as there is still love in the world and there is still someone that believes in him, Santa Claus will continue to exist and prepare us countless surprises for children and grownups.

 

Unul dintre cele mai dragalase cadouri pe care le-am primit anul acesta este un fluturas verde asezat pe un fulg de zapada argintie, pe care l-am atarnat in bradul de Craciun si care a adus mai multa stralucire in casa noastra.

One of the cutest presents I got this year is a green butterfly that sat on a silver glittery snowflake, which I hung in our Christmas tree, and brought more light into our home.

Si ma gandeam ca ar fi frumos sa daruiesc si eu mai departe  fluturasi, care sa simbolizeze visele ce le vom implini in noul an:

And I thought that it would be nice to give away¬† butterflies also, to symbolize the dreams that we’ll make true this new year:

Unul din lapte si unul din  miere pentru mai mult timp alaturi de cei dragi.

One butterfly with milk and one with honey for more time spent with our loved ones.

Unul din cerul verii si unul din valuri de mare pentru marile aventuri ce ne asteapta, prietenii noi, locurile pe care le vom descoperi sipentru lucrurile pe care le vom invata.

One butterfly made out of the summer sky and one from the sea waves for the great adventures ahead, new friands, places we’ll discover and for the things we will learn.

Unul din ciocolata  si unul din caramel, pentru toate dorintele ascunse si nerostite, pentru rasfatul pe care o sa ni-l daruim in anul care vine.

One of chocolate and one of caramel for all our unspoken wishes, and for all the pampering we will give ourselves this year.

Va doresc sa va indepliniti toate dorintele si visele in acest an, toate sa va mearga din plin si sa va bucurati de tot ceea ce va ofera viata, lucruri mici, lucruri mari, si nu uitati sa daruiti celor din jur: un zambet, o mana de ajutor, un pic din timpul vostru.

I wish you all fulfill all your wishes and dreams this year, that everything will work out just as you plan and you’ll enjoy all the small and big things that life will bring, and don’t forget to be generous to other too: give a smile, a helping hand, a little bit of your time.

Va imbratisez cu drag si… ne reintalnim la anul!

Many hugs and… hope we’ll meet again next year!
