Sunday morning with fairies, mooncats and unicorns

Sunday’s art exhibit with Kate Fensom was an event I’d been looking forward to for so long, and an event that we’d been ‘meaning to’ organize for even longer. In the end it of course worked out the way it was ‘meant to be’ - perfectly. I had been admiring Kate’s work online ever since we’d met at an exhibition in her hometown Paphos several years ago and was ecstatic at the thought of her beautiful fairytale work gracing my walls.
 
The artist arrived in Limassol  early to give us time to get ready for the event, schedule for 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. It was a gloriously warm morning that felt more like spring than autumn as we started what was to be a most perfect day, happily chatting and arranging my bright and sunny living room - Kate in charge of the paintings, sets of cards, puzzles.... me of the tables, coffee cups, cake plates...

Bach flower remedies, human resources and art

And yet another weekend of a wonderfully eclectic selection of events. On Friday we learned about the benefits of using homeopathic, plant essence based Bach flower remedies, on Saturday we got tips on a healthy working environment and on Sunday we got to dwell in wonderfully mystical art.

Not your typical Sunday afternoon coffee chat

 

Sunday afternoon’s event was very busy and greatly  enjoyed by all - even though it was not your typical light-hearted coffee & cake conversation. We had Eva-Lena Hellmark, the manager of RightHere Cyprus Second Hand Shop, and several of her team members/volunteers telling us about the work they do under the umbrella of Wellspring Association to support victims of human trafficking.
 
RightHere is a second hand shop in the center of  Limassol (corner Anexartisias - St. Andrew’s Street) that is different. It is also a shop that wants to MAKE a difference. RightHere is part of Wellspring Association, a non-profit organization that is working for the support and restoration of individuals dealing with crises in their lives (due to prostitution, human trafficking, or other abusive and difficult situations) or who are in vulnerable/at-risk situations. Text taken from their Facebook page.

Meditation, Art, Charity and Cakes...

mary's dinner clubsLast weekend saw yet another unusual yet highly successful mix of events: A pranic healing prosperity meditation, an art exhibit and a charity afternoon tea.
 
Friday’s pranic healing prosperity meditation was simply beautiful and I was honoured to get to host it! It was lead by Chiara Perfetti who was visiting from Greece to give a pranic healing course at Glorious Cycles.

The beauty of Austrians, their cakes, their photography

Sunday’s event was created ‘on a whim’ when a fellow Austrian told me she wanted to launch her photography business Conny Kasparis Photgraphy specializing in people photography and natural portraits. We came up with a ‘plan’ right there and then. She was only free on Sundays, we both like baking Austrian cakes... The event ‘Austrian Kaffee & Kuchen with a complimentary portrait by Conny Kasparis’ was born.

Astrology and pumpkins for Halloween

What an amazing variety of events we got to enjoy this weekend - and yes, I do mean ‘we’ as several guests actually attended two events and one couple even all three - an introduction to astrology, a cocktail party and clothes shopping and an Austrian coffee and cake afternoon with a free portrait.  That’s in part thanks to my new home - super spacious and yet cosy. So perfect – people feel right at home!
 
We thus kicked off the weekend with Friday’s Introduction to Astrology with Al Davidian - an event which had seen quite a few bookings from the very beginning  - it appears to be a topic that continuous to have many wonder about how it actually ‘works’. So much so, that despite the early 7:30 start, everybody was right on time and literally jumped for a spot on my big couches the moment I suggested we settled down.

New friends, new food and new clothes

On Friday we experimented with yet a new combination - and it turned out to be perfect. Julie Bond from the used clothing shop The Wardrobe brought a selection of items from her huge shop in Episkopi and we gathered over nibbles and sparkling wine.
 
I had left the times flexible and guests arrived throughout the evening. Most of them even stopping at the clothes rack before taking a sip of their welcome drink - an all time favourite that has become a tradition at Mary’s - dry sparkling wine with a drop of passion fruit syrup. The whole evening felt more like a cocktail party, like a girls’ night out shopping.
