Radi berete? / Books

Poglejte kaj sem našla pri Elizabeth: seznam stotih knjig. Po mnenju BBC-ja naj bi običajen človek prebral le 6 od vseh naštetih knjig. Preizkusimo se.... (ne da se mi prevajat naslovov, ampak saj jih poznamo, kaj ne)

Look what I found at Elizabeth from Bits of Sunshine

The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.

1) Preberi seznam in naredi x pri knjigah, ki si jih prebral./ Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read.
2) Znak % naredi pri knjigah, kater si začel brati pa nisi prišel do konca / Put a % after those you've read a portion of. 3) Plus + naredi pri knjigah, ki so ti noro všeč / Add a '+' to the ones you LOVE. 4) Zvezdico pa pri knjigah, ki jih še nameravaš prebrati / Star (*) those you plan on reading.

Najboljša / The best

Vem, da imate že vse svoj izvod varno na domači polici, robovi se že vihajo navzgor, kakšna packa čokolade je že skrita tam na deseti strani... jaz sem svoj izvod kupila nekaj dni nazaj...

I'm sure you all have a copy of it at home, the edges are twirling up and there is a chocholade stain on page ten... I bought mine few days ago...

... naslovka obljublja božansko poletje...
... a promise of a devine summer on the front page...

... mislite da bi imel moj brat kaj proti, če mu vrnem takole prikolico?
... do you think my brother would mind if a return him a caravn looking like this?

... kateremu pikcu bi lahko tole sešila?
... cute!

VIP


... gospodični G bi rada za rojstni dan naredila girlando. Na vsaki zastavici bi bila na eni strani izvezena ena od njenih risbic, na drugi pa bi bil kos njej ljubega blaga. Zaenkrat imam narejeni dve sliki - zmajčka in kužka... hmmmm....

... I have a plan of making a garland for Miss G for her birthday. I'm going to stich one of her drawings on every flag. On the other side would be a scrap of a sweet fabric choosen by her. I have already made a dragon and a dog... and a month to go...

IF Worn

Pulover: oblačilo, ki ga nosi otrok, ko je njegovi mamici hladno.

Sweater, n: garment worn by child when it's mother is feeling chilly.

Metulji / Butterflies

Nekaj dni nazaj smo si ogledali razstavo metuljev v Arboretumu
Few days ago we went to see a Butterflies exhibition in Arboretum

Metulji so prosto letali okoli nas in bilo je čarobno.
Butterflies were flieing free all around us. It was magical.

Gospodičnama je bilo najbolj všeč, ko je kakšen sedel njima na ramo. Žal je hitro odletel, ker sta od veselja preveč poskakovali. Na nas so se zadržali dalj časa ...
The best part was when a butterfly sat on us. Miss G was jumping around too much for a butterfly to stay on her for long, but we were a great slowly moving trunk.

Da pa imajo tudi metulji dušico, je dokazal tale lepotec, ki je čisto mirno sedel na dlani gospodične G.
But to prove that also butterflies have hearts -this lovely blue guy sat on Miss G's hand and let her to carry him around. She was so happy.

Gospodična N se je bala velikih plahutajočih kril in zato sem, vsa prevzeta od videnega, doma končno dokončala tega smeškota.
Miss N was a little afraid of the big flapping wings. I decided do, of course inspired by all the beauty I have seen, to make her a liottle butterfly. Actualy I finnished one. This funny guy has been on my desk since January. And there is still one more waiting for my attention.

Še en krilček čaka na mojo pozornost že vse ob marca. Potrebuje še kapico in potem vam ga pokažem.
There is another wingy waiting for me on my deck. Remember this?


Vesel petek vsem!
Happy Friday!

Rože, rož'ce, rožice / Flowers, roses

...sprehod po parku...
...a walk in the park...

... med rožicami...
...among roses...

... vsaka vrtnica je imela drug vonj... tale je dišala po limoni...
...they all smell different... this one smells like lemon...

... bolj kot cvetovi, so bile zanimive kobilice...
...catching grasshoppers...

... doma sem navdahnjena od vseh videnih cvetov, končno končala torbo...
...inspired by so many lovely flowers I finally finished my bag...

... v njej bom imela knjigo, zvezek in svinčnik... konec koncev je prišlo poletje...
...I'll keep my book, notebook and pencil with me... it's summer afterall...

Lep začetek novega delovnega tedna vam želim!
Have a great week!

Vilinki in borovnice / Two Fairies and some blueberries

... ptice so pele in borovci so šumeli...
...the birds were singing and pine trees were rustling...

... drobne borovnice so se sramežljivo stiskale k visokemu zaščitniku...
... big trees were offering protection to little blueberries...

... zaslišim smeh in pokukam okoli debla...
... suddenly I heard laughing...

... mali vilinki se igrata in smejeta...
... two little fairies were playing in the grass...

... hej, ne oditita še...
... hey, don't run away...

... spet se sliši le petje ptic in šumenje borov...
... and all I could here again was birds singing and pine trees rustling...

V gozd / Into the woods

...morda bomo v gozdu srečali kakšno vilo... to bi bilo lepo... morda nam bo pokazala, kje rastejo najdebelejše borovnice...

...maybe we'll meet a fairy in the woods today... that would be nice... and she might show us where the biggest wild blueberries grow...

Star top + novo blago / Old top + new fabric

... nova poletna oblekica...
... new summer dress...

...malo mi je žal, da je nisem prej sezula... ampak je vseeno tale slika mega...
... look at her moves :o) ... I'm sorry i didn't took her shoes off...

Potrebovala sem urico zase. V tišini delovne sobe.
I needed a time for myself. In a quiet zone of my studio.

... res mi je všeč tole blago... tako dekliško bonbončkasto...
... I really like this fabric... so girly candish...

... iz las v vodo... gospodična G pa k večerji in v posteljo...
... from her hair to water... and Miss G into bed...

Vikend fotke / Weekend photos

Ste me videli bežati? ne, to bo zato, ker sem bila tako hitra. Bežala sem pred volkom. Tistim velikim, sivim in lačnim. Tistim, ki je pojedel babico in sedem kozličkov. Nekako je splezal iz vodnjaka in ker imam tako volčjo srečo, je naletel točno name. Ampak sedaj sem v redu. Tako zelo v redu, da sem si upala celo na vrt in naredila nekaj fotk. Sicer se po gospodičnah pase volčji prehlad in se držimo bolj ob strani, ampak tudi ko smo sami, nam je lepo.Bolj malo časa imam za kakšno ustvarjanje, ampak nekaj ekskluzivnih fotk vam bom v kratkem lahko pokazala. Do takrat pa:

Did you see me run? No. Well that's because I was so fst. i was running away from the wolf. That big, grey, hungry wolf. The one that ate granny and seven goats. He somehow manage to get out of the well and because I'm so wolfy lucky, he found me. But I'm OK now. Actualy I even manage to take a camera and do some shots. Yay. Miss G and N are having some nasty wolfy fever, so we can't go out much, but our garden is lovely as well. I didn't have time for craft though, but I'm positive that I'll be able to show you some WIP photos. I'm working on somethink really special. It's in my head for now, but soon... until than:

gozdne jagode sredi stopnic / wood berries in the middle of the stairs

ribez / redcurrant

zajčica / bunny girl

radovedni prstki / curious fingers

mmmmm, paradižnik / mmmmmmm, cherry tomato

cel stroj rozik / pink

vranji mladič, ki še ne zna leteti in domuje na našem vrtu. Starša ga skrbno čuvata na vsakem njegovem koraku in dokler nista ugotovila, da nismo nevarni, smo morali držati gospodični na varnem. Njuni nizki preleti in jezno krakanje bi prestrašili tudi vas, verjemite.

baby crow. She still can't fly so she is jumping around our garden. Her parents are always around and we had some scary moments with them before they learned that we are no threat to their kid. Belive me, they sure know how to fly low.

Se vidimo kmalu. Jutri odhajam na tridnevni tabor z mojimi mulčki. Bodite lepo.

See you soon. I'm taking my pupils to a 'shool in nature'. It's just for a few days. Be well.

Se opravičujem za tole pozno objavo, ampak moji dnevi zadnje čase niso čisto iz pravljice. No ja lažem, morda bi se lahko povlekle kakšne vzporednice z občutji babice, ki jo je požrl volk ali kaj podobnega.

I'm sorry for my late post, but my life is so far from a fairy tale... oh well, not true - I feel like a granny eaten by a wolf or something.
