Dilyara Nassyrova, illustrator and painter also known as Dilkabear, turned her enigmatic characters into super delicate pieces of jewelry, for sale in her Etsy shop. The january’s header is one of her lovely drawings.


Retrospective 2010

The não me mande flores blog ends 2010 with over 200 posts, 103.000 visits and 13.000 comments. We had 12 months (and 12 headers) full of inspiration and beauty – and I wish the same for all of us next year.

Thanks for being part of this journey. See you in 2011!


Merry Christmas!

I wish you all a beautiful and unforgettable Christmas and that, at least for this night, we are able to find beauty even in the small details.

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons.
It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

(Dr. Seuss)


lovely bears

Would anyone have the courage to eat an entire family of chocolate and marshmallow bears? Yes, I would! This beautiful package was designed by Mzelle Fraise and can be purchased on Le Petit Ourson Guimauve website. Adorable!
