Once a book worm, always a book worm


painted and written on with textile paint

I'm no stranger to textile paints and I always enjoy using them. Painting on clothes is a lot of fun and a great way to refresh your wardrobe. Anyhow, today I present you with the result of my recent creative activities. Old bag made new ( I just love recycling stuff). I'm also taking an opportunity to appeal on behalf the flood victims in BIH, Croatia and Serbia. You can make a donation to the red cross  herehere and here.

Često se koristim tekstilnim bojama i baš uživam u tome. Uvijek je zabavno oslikavati odjeću, a uz to je to odličan način za osvježiti garderobu.  Početkom mjeseca sam oslikala par starih cekera koje sam pronašla...stare torbe postale su nove (uvijek me veseli iskoristi nešto nanovo).

Samo da još kažem kako je zaista divno vidjeti koliko su ljudi spremni pomoći žrtvama poplave...grozno je to što se dogodilo, ali je barem utješno vidjeti humanost na djelu. Dok imamo srca jedni za druge, ima nade!


  1. I definitely agree with you, painting on clothes is so much fun! I love doing this too, but I don't have so many ideas as you have, unfortunatelly. Sometimes I'd love to create somethign interesting, but I have no inspiration, my muse is lazy, seems to me:)
    That bag turned out really cool and original! Hope you will enjoy using it for a long time)

    1. To me inspiration always come when I don't expect it, when I'm tired and stresses...and when I do have time I don't always have the right ideas...Life is funny:)

    2. super, nice bag :)

  2. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)

  3. Super je, originalno i unikatno. :)

  4. I have have to have 3 extra bags just in case I mess up the whole thing, LOL! It takes talent and precision and I just don't have both!

  5. Ma che idea carina!!!
    Sei davvero creativa, tesoro! :D

  6. I love your blog,dear!

  7. Is this a bag! I love it, can I have it? So fun :-)

  8. Honestly I painted only my sneakers in the past and I can't remember that I ever had painted any garment! But the result of your painting is stunning and I like it - I like also the quote, now I know why I am a bookworm :)

  10. Prepoznajem se u toj rečenici ;) Toliko je slatko i divno da nemam reči. Non stop bih nosila tu torbicu :)

  11. I love the result ! Beautiful idea, I love this DIY :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

February recap / sažetak veljače

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…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

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 …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

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 herehereherehere 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…
