It is still a miracle / To je još uvijek čudo


 'I' do not matter. No word matters. But man forgets reality and remember words. The more words he remembers, the cleaverer do his fellows esteem him. He looks upon the great transformatons of the world, but he does not see them as they were seen when man looked upon reality for the first time. Their names come to his lips and he smiles as he tastes them, thinking he knows them in the naming. The thing that has never happened before is still happening. It is still a miracle. 

Roger Zelanzny, Lord of Light

 "Ja", to nije bitno.  Nijedna riječ nije bitna. No, čovjek zaboravlja stvarnost i pamti riječi. Što više riječi zapamti, to ga pametnijim smatraju ljudi oko njega. On gleda velike pretvorbe svijeta, ali ne vidi ih onako kako ih je vidio čovjek koji je gledao stvarnost po prvi put. Njihova imena dolaze na njihove usne i on se smije kad ih okusi, misleći da ih poznaje ako ih imenuje. Stvar koja se nikada prije nije dogodila još se događa. To je još čudo.

Roger Zelanzny, Gospodar svjetlosti 



This is quote from one of my all time favourite novels. If you get the chance, read it. So, that would be my book recommendation of the day. Today's post is a continuation of the last one. The outfit I'm wearing is almost the same, I only added another layer with this ski jacket. Location is well known to the regual visitors of my blog. Once again, I couldn't resist visiting Buna river (located in vicinity of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina).

Ovo je citat iz jednoga od mojih najdražih romana, dobijete li priliku, pročitajte ga. To bi bila moja preporuka knjige dane. Današnja objava je zapravo nastavak prošle. Odjevna kombinacija je ista, samo sam dodala jedan sloj s ovom skijaškom jaknom. Mjesto snimanja je vjerujem dobro poznato redovitim čitateljima bloga. Ponovo nisam mogla odoljeti posjeti rijeke Bune (koja se nalazi u blizini Mostara, BIH).

  20. Thank you for sharing this quote and your recommendation of book, I'll remember it and the quote is amazing :) I see that the Spring has come to your city and everything is blooming, honestly Ivana, I'm so jealous about that, because in Poland it's still very cold and it's raining, so I can't wait for warmer days :) What's more, I really like how you styled your ski jacket with the rest of your outfit, dear! :) Hope you're having wonderful day :)

  21. Najljepše je promatrati prirodu dok se budi u rano proljeće, vjerujem da ste baš dobar đir napravili :) Nisam čitala tu knjigu, ali sam si je zapisala da pronjuškam po knjižnici kad idući put odem :)

  32. Dear Ivana, many thanks for your book recommendation! And I see spring definitely arrived in your region! Further I noticed you are wearing heels again - does this mean your foot is okay now? Hopefully I'm right with my assumption. You are so spring ready with your lovely look and I love also the location. Enjoy this weekend!

  38. Aren't you so lucky to be able to fit reading into your busy schedule. Try as I may, I've not been successful. Perhaps in the Summer time. Wish me luck, :)).
    I'm looking at that tree growing out of the river and thinking how amazing nature is.
    And image number 6 is my favorite, so beautiful. I love how you mixed the prints, cute green jacket. Your bag is cute, Getting a fringe bag has been on my to do list for the longest time. Yours inspires me to do it soon.
    Spring has surely sprung in your neck of the woods. I see cherry blossoms all over my neighborhood and can't help but smile. It's that time of the year once again.
    Have a lovely weekend darling.

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…
