The spring of the river Tihaljina (photography ) / Izvor rijeke Tihaljine (fotografija)

Have I saved the best for last? I'll let you be the judge of that. This is my third and last post  (links for the first one and the second one ) from Peć Mlini and today I'll show you the spring of the river Tihaljina. This freshwater spring is absolutely beautiful. I was even fortunate enough to see a freshwater crab there, but unfortunately I don't know its scientific name. In vain I researched the internet, the name of this freshwater crab will remain a mystery to me. Nevertheless, it is another indication of how pure this water really is. Perfect place for a swim, my friends assured me!

Do you remember my posts about Trebižad river?  Anyhow, according to wikipedia, because of the fact that Trebižad river disappears and reappears many times, people have developed a total of nine names for it.In the past they didn't know it is one and the same river. Tihaljina is just one of those names. Isn't that fascinating?  Another fascinating information is that the area surrounding this magnificent water oasis was populated since the prehistorical times. Actually, it makes perfect sense. Who wouldn't want to live here?

Peć Mlini is in fact a part of the village Drinovci, located in BIH near the border with Croatia. The name of Peć Mlini, as fellow blogger +beate grigutsch  noticed, can mean 'furnace mills'. In Croatian 'peć' means furnace (or stove/ oven) but it can also be short for 'cave' i.e. pećina. I can't claim to know for sure the etimology of this name, but I think it is possible that in this case it can also mean the later because the spring of the Tihaljina river is as you can see located in a cave. In the first post, you had the chance to observe the ruins of one mill and in the second post I've included so many photograps that I decided to refrain from writing. This third post wraps it all up. I will repeat once again that I recommend visiting this place. Keep it in mind!

Jesam li sačuvala najbolje za kraj? Na vama je da prosudite. Ovo je moja zadnja objava o zaselku Peć Mlini (zaselku Drinovaca). U prijašnjim objavama pokazala sam pregršt fotografija pa i ruševine jednog mlina , a danas ću vam pokazati izvor vode. Izvor voda je tako čista da sam čak vidjela i riječnog raka, ali unatoč pretraživanju interneta, nisam uspjela pronaći njegovo znanstveno ime. Lokalno ga zovu škorpion i stvarno je divan, a ujedno još jedan pokazatelj čistoće vode... Ova je voda savršena za plivanje i rashladiti se, tako su mi rekli i ja to vjerujem mada se nisam odvažila.

Na internetu sam pronašla podatak da je rijeka Tihaljina zapravo samo jedno od imena rijeke Trebižad. Sjećate se mojih objava o ovoj rijeci? Pošto Trebižad izvire i nestaje nekoliko puta, narod ga poznaje pod čak devet imena. Zar to nije zanimljivo? Jednako mi je zanimljiv i podatak da je područje oko ove vodene oaze bilo naseljeno još od prapovijesnih vremena.

Ime ovog zaselka Drinovaca sigurno ime veze s mlinovima. Ruševinu jednog mlina mogli ste vidjeti u prvoj objavi. No, nisam sigurna na što se "peć" u nazivu odnosu. Možda se odnosi na peć, a možda je i skraćeno za "pećina" pošto je izvor kao što možete vidjeti u pećini. U svakom slučaju preporučila bi vam posjetiti ovo mjesto.

  4. Obožavam ovakve mostove, ali se također ne bi usudila ovdje kupati. No, s obzirom da je voda pitka, to bi sigurno isprobala :))

  10. Nice pics of a great location Ivana. I can see how the river disappearing and re-appearing would cause some confusion and it is amusing that it now has nine different names.

    I love that dress too. Stripes on the own might be too much, but breaking them up into patches like this works very well. You look great.

Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful pictures including the so cute white goats. You look also very beautiful on the pictures and it is really amazing that it has even 9 different names. Hope you had a good week so far!

  28. That is fascinating about the river having 9 names. It sounds somewhat fantastical and a bit sinister when I say it aloud. The River of 9 Names. Sounds like an old Kung Fu film. Such a lovely place and goats goats goats. So sweet! You look lovely, dear! And I can help with your search for the name of the crab, his name was Fred :)P

  37. You definitely left the best for last, Ivana! The waterfall and cave looks magnificent and it reminds me of a waterfall that I came across while trekking through Indonesia in my 20s. Miss those good old days when I get to travel more.

    just awesome!!! I love landscapes like this. In the past i travelling to swiss and wandering in such a beautiful environment - it was perfect.

    Like i see, you had also very much fun. Such a little creek in a canyon like this looks always gorgeous to me. This is really a peaceful place of nature!

    Thanks for these many, many pics.

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
