Café Gomb

I have not posted anything recently, because of the light circumstances - we have some dark, cloudy days, or sun, but then other reason occured.
So in order to keep alive this blog I decided to show some pictures of the places I really adore. (And if I can undertake those photos - please do not forget that I am not professional at all!).
First I would like to present you a tiny café in a renewed, gentrified neighborhood of Budapest - one time a real blue-collar area with slummy streets and desperated people. On its main square (Ferenc tér) you can find Gomb Café (means Café Button).
As I had my birthday on the 8th of January, I decided to visit them and make a pleasent afternoon there to chech their home maid cheescake and café con leche. The place looks like a living room af a bohemian girl, you can read books, old magazines, there are toys for kids, also lot of vintage objects ...and many decoration using buttons! The button pattern is also applied on cups and even their bisquits look like it. Such a nice idea!

Régóta nem posztoltam, mivel a fényviszonyok nem igazán teszik lehetővé, hogy fotók készüljenek rólam, ezért megmutatom a január 8-i szülinapomon készült képeket. Úgy gondoltam, ezt a nevezetes délutánt a Gomb Caféban ünneplem meg. Biztosan sokan hallottatok róla, egy picinyke hely a Ferenc téren, és jellemzően a gomb jelenik meg fő dekorációs elemként (még a kávéhoz adott keksz is gomb formájú), de a rengeteg vintage tárgy és régi könyv is otthonossá teszik.

Back to the winter

Blouse - customs made upon a Burda partner, pull - old one, denim - Vero Moda

Újra itthon... Az inget még a második terhességem idején hordtam, Burdából készült. A pulcsi még régebbi, akkor még egyáltalán nem volt gyermekem. (Bár nem sokkal a vásárlása után estem teherbe - nem most volt!) Valahogy most rájuk találtam. A hatalmas gallérral vicces variálni, hitrelen ötlettől vezérelve a kabáton kívülre is kihajtottam.

In Budapest again. I found that blouse and jumper in the deep of my wardrobe. Blouse was a pregnancy piece, the other is more older. It was fun to play how to wear the large collar.

San Telmo

San Telmo - where I rent my apartement -  is the oldest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires - the very first colony was settled here. Old casas are still standing, time looks being stopped. The district is lucky: untill now, real estate developers keept them theirselves away from the area, however, it is getting more and more popular.
This barrio is most known about its market fair, as well as the place where from tango origines. (La Boca and either Montevideo would disagree.) La Defensa street gives place for the Sunday art market - artists and craftmen sell their products all along the street. Here I met Telma, who also sale her fine, hand made cotton items on ETSY. I had ordered a tunic from her and she remembered me, since I was her only customer from Hungary! You can see her smiling in one of the posted pictures here!
Also many upcoming designer's shops, cafés, tango hostels, bars can be found here in the colonial streets.

My Buenos Aires home

This is my lovely BA apartement I rented via AIRBNB, situates in San Telmo, the historical and most charming neighborhood in the city. I allways wanted to live in a flat like this, so I enjoyed being alone there so much!
