Summer caught up with me and I had to put the 3 Questions series on the back burner. But I’m happy to say I’ve been in touch with some great women to feature and will get the series rolling again. Up first is the lovely Anna of Speckles. She is originally from Spain but currently living in Germany. Her posts, projects and the general way in which she captures and shares the simple beauties of the everyday always impress me. She has such a great eye for color and print, which shows in the things she knits and sews. Visiting her blog leaves me feeling warm and cozy, like I’m wrapped in handknits and having a cup of tea on an autumn day.
What is the last vacation you went on?
My last vacation was two years ago (now we live in Munich and this summer we’ve come back home to home, so they were “homevacation”). so two years ago my hubby and I drove to Provence , it is very close to home (barcelona). The car broke down, but this is another story. We stayed in a country house ,the owner was a lovely woman, every morning she prepared breakfast on the terrace. I remember the pleasant evening walks by fruit trees. It was wonderful, I would love to live there, I’d love to live in a house surrounded by wildflowers and ivy on the walls.
What was your favorite movie as a kid?
I remember that my parents recorded a movie from TV on VHS, it was a children’s film with great music. Also I had the cassette, so I had the full kit.. I remember seeing this movie all the time, any time was perfect for it. Now I’ve searched the link I have remembered my father saying, “Anna, again, don’t you think you could see other things?”
What is the thing you like best about your work?
Although now I’m not working, my career is design. I’m a creative person, perhaps a bit chaotic, I need to be doing many different things because I get bored with monotony. Define the idea, shape it and to be able to communicate, that’s what I like. obviously I hate the bureaucratic part ..
