A painting and an outfit--- Slika i odjevna kombinacija
Here is a new oil painting that I have made on request. I made it in a hurry, but I still like it, the tree branch looks kind of surreal and that is what I was going for (Did you know that in Latin a tree branch is called a ramus...Now, isn't that a pretty word?). The rest of my paintings are in one gallery where they will be sold or maybe they won't be, we'll just have to wait and see. There are always things to put on walls in my home, as I have many framed photographs, so the house doesn't feel empty. Home decorating always keeps me entertained. In today's post, you can also see what I have worn on the International Women's Day (that is when the photographs were taken). Low heels shoes are my alternative to flats and these boots from Peko have proven to be quite comfortable. These two last photographs are kind of funny because I didn't realize I was being photographed, hence the surprised look on my face.
Evo novog ulja na platnu kojeg sam naslikala za nekoga tko me zamolio. Radila sam ga u žurbi, ali ipak mi se sviđa kako je grana ispala, ne baš realno i pomalo fantazijski, što sam i pokušala (baš mi se sviđa latinski izraz za granu ramus. Jedna od onih riječi koje su nekako lijepe po sebi) Ostatak mojih slika je u jednog galeriji, gdje će se možda prodati, a možda i neće, morati ćemo pričekati i vidjeti. Uvijek imam nešto za staviti na zidove u kući, uokvirila sam brojne fotografije, tako da zidovi nisu prazni. Uvijek me veseli uređivanje doma. U postu također možete vidjeti što sam nosila na dan žena jer su od tada fotografije. Niske pete su moja alternativa skroz ravnim cipelama, a ove čizme iz Peka su se pokazale jako udobnim. Malo su smiješno ispale ove dvije zadnje fotografije jer nisam skužila da me netko slika.
Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko.
I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern. The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …
You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?
As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.
Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…
With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts here, here, here, here and here. Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
