Trenutek za dihanje / A moment to breathe


Ste se kdaj ustavili sredi poti in se ozrli okoli?
Ste dvignili glavo, zaprli oči ter globoko zajeli zrak?
Kar tako, iz čistega užitka.
Ste obstali v tem položaju nekaj trenutkov?
 Ste začutili nežen dotik narave?
Čudovito je.
Moram si zapomniti, da je to obvezen del vsakega sprehoda.

*

Did you ever stop in the middle of the walk and look around?
Did you lift your head, close your eyes and inhale really deep?
Just because it's so wonderful.
Did you stay in that movement for few moments?
Did you feel the gentle touch of the Nature?
It's amazing!
I need to remember to do this on every walk.

Trenutek za nakupovanje / A moment to shop


Pri nakupovanju sicer redko začutim kakšno blazno navdušenje, ampak tokrat je bilo drugače. Odkrila sem namreč trgovinico z rabljenimi oblačili (a nimajo simpatičnega znakca?) in tukaj se najdejo tudi pravi biserčki.  Recimo dolgo črno krilo z izvezenimo zlatimi pticami po celem spodnjem robu. Uau, vam povem... malo mi je sicer ozka, ampak možnosti je toliko, da bo še nekaj časa visela na steni moje šivalnice, potem se bom pa odločila, kaj narediti. 
Ja, držim se svoje novoletne obljube, ne kupujem novih oblačil, ampak rabljena :o)


I rarely feel any special enthusiasm for shopping, but this time was different. There is a new  secondhand shop in Ljubljana (they have really cute sign, don't you think?) any I found few wonderful pieces today... like this long black skirt with golden birds on the lower edge. I love it. It's a little tight around my waist but I don't care. There are so many other possibilities how to use it.

Trenutek za igro / A moment to play

 
Še sem tukaj, tiha, zamišljena ... malce izgubljena iščem svojo pot... med iskanjem bom objavljala trenutke dneva, trenutke, ko sem začutila iskrico... in upam, da me bodo sčasoma privedle nazaj na mojo pot...


I'm still here... quite, thoughtful... a little lost... trying to find my path... I'll be sharing a photo, or two, each day here, a photo of a moment in my day... a sparkling moment... and I hope that those sparks will slowly get me back to my little path...

Simboli sreče / Good-luck charms


Tokratni izziv na CRAFT-alnici, za katerega lovim skorajda zadnje minute, da se prijavim, je imel za temo simbole sreče. Po pravici povedano sem zelo pikapolonasta, kadar je govor o znanilcih sreče, ampak sem si želela najti kaj ne tako zelo običajnega. 
Po kratkem brskanju sem našla tole stran in seveda, brez večjih presenečenj, izbrala za svoj simbol sreče še želod.
In ker je potrebno imeti srečo vedno v žepu, sem si naredila obesek za ključe. 


I'm participating in Good- Luck Charms Challenge at Craft-alnica.
My first chocse would be ladybird, but I wanted to make something not so common. After reading this and this text yesterday I decided, no surprise there, that I will make an acorn.
An luck is best to have in your pocket so I made a keyring amulet.

Medvedkov šal / Bear's scarf


 Rezultat dveh skavčkanih večerov je tako simpatičen, da bom naredila še žabico, lisičko, miško in... katero živalco bi si vi ovili okoli vratu?
Two crochet-evenings and a cute scarf was ready to warm up my little girls neck. It was such a fun project and now I want to make a fox, a mouse, a frog.... what animal would you choose to keep you warm?

Prekratko / Too short

 Prej / Before

 Uresničujem svoj drzni načrt, haha.
V šivalnici imam kar nekaj krilc, ki so občutno prekratka (le kaj sem razmišljala???!!) in kar nekaj časa že čakajo na podaljšanje. 
Prvo je že na varnem v omari in čaka na prvi sprehod.


I have few skirts in my studio that are way too short for me (what was i thinking????!). 
I'm planning to give them proper lenght.
First one is already in my wardrobe waiting for a walk.


 Potem / After

Puloverček pa je delo moje babice.

A sweater is handmade by my granny.

Umetnine na ledu / Ice art


 Sončne žarke smo danes lovile na ledeni plošči.
Na bajer sem se hodila drsat še kot otrok, potem pa je moralo miniti kar nekaj let, da sem danes zopet stopila nanj.
In to v novih drsalkah... hvala Božiček!
Drsati po naravnem ledu je čisto nekaj drugega kot drsanje po urejenem drsališču. Kdor je poskusil oboje mislim, da se bo strinjal z menoj. Poleg tega pa se nobea dvorana ali drsališče sredi mesta ne more kosati z drsališčem obdanim z borovci, brezami in trstičjem.


We were catching sun rays on an ice. 
I was skating on this little lake as a kid and then many years had passed... but today I put on my new skates (thank you Santa!) and it was fun!
I really like the natural ice for skating... much more than  skating rink. Besides, nothing beats the scenery around our little lake in the woods.

Ledena plošča pokrita z mehko odejo ivja pa je tudi čudovit prostor za risanje. 


Ice covered with a soft thin rime is also a great place for drawing.

 Upam, da ste tudi vi preživeli lep dan.


I hope you had a lovely day.






Izziv / A Challenge

Pravzaprav je vse skupaj zelo preprosto: celo leto ne bom kupila nobene nove reči... ahem, razen rabljenih in ročno narejenih. Odločitev ni bila sprejeta v trenutku, rojevala in preoblikovala se je kar nekaj časa. Lansko leto sem razmišljala, kako fino bi bilo, če bi celo leto podarjala ra najrazličnejše priložnosti, ob katerih se pač podarja darila, ročno izdelane reči. Izpod mojih rok. A sem bila reva in nisem znala cenit svojega dela, zato tega nisem uresničila. Sedaj še vedno ne znam cenit svojega dela, ampak mi je vseeno, saj mislim, da ga znate vi in me boste naučili, da ga bom znala tudi jaz :o) Poleg tega pa se ne bom omejila le na darila. Letos bo moje handmade leto. Nobenega novega kosa oblačila ne bom kupila in sploh nobene nove reči. Le staro, rabljeno ali ročno narejeno.
Vse skupaj pa ima tudi tradicijo, saj sem se s svojo odločitvijo pridružila izzivu Dottie Angel challenge of the utmost kind. Več si lahko preberete na njenem blogu. Sicer imam malo težavico, da v Sloveniji nimamo tako razširjene mreže dobrodelnih trgovin z rabljenim blagom, a sem si materiala z leti toliko nabrala, da mi bo uspelo.
To je to. Mislim, da bo kar zanimivo.



It's all very simple: for the whole year I'm going to buy only handmade and used stuff for my home and myself. And I'm going to sew clothes for myself... ahem, this should be fun :o)
This was not a quick decision. I'm thinking about this for a year now: first I wanted to have a handmade gifts year - I wanted to give only gifts made by me... but that did't work out very well, because I don't believe my things are any good. But I know they are made with love and that's enough for now. Slowly I'll learn to treasure my 'so called creations' more... I hope. 
And then Dottie Angel blog came along... it was one of the best blog finds of this Winter. She is amazing and I love her photos. On her blog I have found a challenge of the utmost kind. I was thrilled and it was like the last push I needed. So here I am, at the beginning of my handmade year.  I'm sure it will be fun and challenging :o)

Zima na Pokljuki / Winter views



 Preden vam razodenem svoj veliki letošnji načrt in predvsem izziv, naj vas malo ohladim (čeprav verjamem, da tega ob današnjih temperaturah nikakor ne potrebujete) s fotkami s Pokljuke. Ampak je pa res, da je tam poleg mraza tudi SONCE!!!!
O izzivu pa v naslednji objavi.



Before I tell about my big plan and most of all a challenge for this year, I would like to show you some photos from our New Year's fun on Pokljuka. It's not only cold up there, it's sunny too. Yay!
