DIY flower on a clutch/ Uradi sam cvijet na torbici


a closer look of the clutch and the DIY (the flower and the rest) I've posted about here. To be honest it didn't turned out the way I wanted it to, but there will be new attempt (or attempts soon).

Malo bolji pogled na cvijet koji sam naslikala ( i ostalo) i o čemu sam pisala ovdje. Zapravo nije ispalo kako je trebalo, ali nema veze uskoro će biti novi pokušaj (ili pokušaji).

strawberry cake/ kolač od jagode

nothing says spring like strawberry cakes

Lately strawberry cakes have been on my menu and let me tell you I have baked them in all shapes and sizes. I haven't really followed any recipe but as most of the time improvised. The key is to find good strawberries (there are many recipes online)! (Sadly the ones I have bought yesterday (at the same open market!) are not quite mature yet so I'll have to wait for tomorrow. Besides the strawberry cakes I have also baked chocolate ones and well all kinds (you might have noticed that I have a sweet tooth) .

U zadnje vrijeme su mi na jelovniku bili kolači od jagode. Baš sam ih pekla u svim oblicima i veličinama, mekše i tvrđe...ne po nekom receptu nego više po nekom nadahnuću (tako sam ovaj pomalo neuredna izgleda napravila vez valjanja jer mi se nije dalo čistiti stol). Čini mi se da je ključno za ovaj kolač samo pronaći dobre jagode (recepte možete naći lako). Jagode koje sam jučer kupila još nisu zrele (a kupila sam ih na istoj tržnici...nekad jednostavno nemaš sreće). Osim kolača od jagoda, prekla sam i svakakve nekakve druge, čokoladno itd...pa možda ste primjetili da volim slatko.

cage (illustration)/ kavez (ilustracija)



Again, another illustration inspired by  Tennessee Williams'  play. Cat on a Hot Thin Roof is one of his better known plays, probably due to the film version that has won so much acclaim. This would be one of the rare cases where I like the book and the movie equally. I'm sure that primarily has to do with the wonderful performance of Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor. The play is actually a lot more open and daring than the movie, that feels to some extent like a censored version, but as I said the suburb acting makes out for it. Rereading the play, I felt more than ever, sympathetic with the Maggie the cat character.


Maggie: I'll win, all right.
Brick: Win what? What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof?
Maggie: Just staying on it, I guess. As long as she can.


Ponovno jedna ilustracija nadahnuta dramom Tennessee Williamsa. Mačka na vrućem limenom krovu je jedna od njegovih poznatijih drama, vjerovatno zbog filmske verzije koja je bila toliko cijenjena. Ovo bi bio jedan od rijetkih slučajeva kada mi se film sviđa koliko i knjiga, a to je sigurno zbog sjajne izvedbe Paula Newmana i Elizabeth Taylor. Sama drama je puno otvorenija i hrabrija od filma, koji je u nekoj mjeri cenzurirana verzija, ali kao što sam rekla sjajna gluma to nadomješta. Sada kad sam ponovo čitala dramu, više nego ikad suosjećala sam sa Maggie.

Easter decoration (DIY): Uskršnja dekoracija (uradi sam)






They find God in each other... (illustration).oni pronalaze Boga jedni u drugima....(ilustracija)




Yesterday's illustration was dedicated to a writer who is no longer with us, but whose words are still here.... Today's illustration is again connected with literature.....and it contains a quote from a wonderful and sad play by Tennessee Williams. The green and the orange in the dress symbolize Sicily (in my logic all least), the island that all the characters in the play originate from. 

" You love your people but you don't understand them. They find God in each other. Any when they lose each other, they lose God and they're lost. And it is hard to help them" The Rose Tattoo, Tennessee Williams.

Jučerašnja ilustracija bila je posvećena piscu koji više nije sa nama, ali čije nam riječi ostaju...Današnja ilustracija je ponovno povezana sa književnošću...sadrži citat iz divne i tužne drame Tennessee Williamsa. Zelena i narančasta na haljini simboliziraju Siciliju (barem po mojoj logici), otok sa kojeg podječu svi bitniji likovi iz drame.

" Volite svoje ljude, ali ih ne razumijete. Oni pronalaze Boga jedno u drugom. I kada izgube jedno drugo, izgube Boga i izgubljeni su. I teško im je pomoći. " Tetovaža Ruže, Tennessee William.
