Details from my home (Easter edition) / Detalji iz moga doma ( Uskršnje izdanje)

Details from my home is not a very frequent feature on my blog (for a number of reasons). For one, the decor in my home doesn't change that often. Moreover, I often include photographs from my home when I do book reviews or when my publish my art. So, you see bits of my home anyway. However, this Easter I did some home made decorations so it seems like a good idea to share them here. In addition, I wanted to show you how I decorated my Easter eggs this year. I tried many different techniques but my favourite one is a traditional one. This traditional technique  consist from decorating the eggs with plants ( the eggs are placed in a pair of tights to secure the plants in place) and then cooking the eggs in onion peels so you get this (in my opinion) absolutely gorgeous colour. If you want to see the results of this traditional method, scroll down. 

If you want to see my previous post from this (Details from my home) feature you can check them out here, here  , here and here.

Detalji iz moga doma i nije baš česta rubrika na ovome blogu iz više razloga. Prvo, dekor kod mene doma se i mijenja tako često. Osim toga, često objavim fotografije iz moje kuće kada radim oglede knjiga ili kada objavljujem svoje crteže i slike. Tako da ionako imate priliku vidjeti neke djeliće moga doma. No, ovoga sam Uskrsa radila sam neke dekoracije sama pa mi se činilo kao dobra ideja da ih podijelim. Osim toga, htjela sam pokazati kako sam ukrasila jaja. Probala sam puno različitih tehnika, ali najdraža mi ipak ostaje tradicionalna metoda ukrašavanja jaja koja uključuje prislanjanje biljaka na koru jaja ( biljke ostaju na mjestu tako da ih se stavlja i zaveže u par najlonki) i kuhanja u kori od luka koja im daje (po mome mišljenju) doista prekrasnu boju.

DIY PROJECT OF THE DAY: 

How to refresh an old basket? 

My husband wanted to throw this old basket into garbage, but I decided to turn it into something useful. So, I painted it  white acrylic colours and used it as a piece of decor for this Easter. I don't plan to get rid of it. I'm sure I'll manage to find some good usage for it in my new home.  When it comes to seasonal decor, I think it's always a good idea to try to incorporate it into our homes. 


                                              

NAPRAVI SAM PROJEKT DANA

                                                          Kako osvježiti staru košaru?

Moj muž je htio baciti ovu staru košaru u smeće, ali ja sam je odlučila pretvoriti u nešto korisno pa sam je obojala s bijelim akrilnim bojama i upotrijebila ju kao komad dekora za ovaj Uskrs. Ne planiram se nje riješiti. Sigurna sam da ću joj pronaći neku namjenu u novom domu. Kada su u pitanju te sezonske dekoracije, mislim da je uvijek dobra ideja uključiti ih u naš dom.

DIY of the day


                                                    How much seasonal decor is enough?

You really don't need to have tons of seasonal decor. Sometimes a few small things are enough. The trick is in knowing to work with what you already have. However, there is nothing wrong in having tons of seasonal decorations if that is something you truly enjoy. Some people are very enthusiastic when it comes to seasonal decor and I actually think that's very sweet. Still, you shouldn't feel pressured to be one of those people. When it comes to decorating your own home, you should really think about what makes you happy. It's your home, you know. You don't have to put out a single Easter/Christmas/whatever decoration if that is just not your thing. 

                                                  Koliko je sezonskih dekoracija dovoljno? 

Zapravo vam ne treba hrpa sezonskih dekoracija. Ponekad je par sitnica dovoljno. Trik je u tome da znate upotrijebiti ono što već imate. No, nema ništa loše u tome da imate hrpu dekorativnih sitnica za svaku prigodu ako je to nešto u čemu stvarno uživate. Neki ljudi su jako posvećeni sezonskim dekoracijama i meni je to iskreno jako slatko. Svejedno, ne biste trebali osjećati pritisak da budete jedna od tih osoba. Kada je u pitanju ukrašavanje vašega doma, morate stvarno razmisliti o onome što vas čini sretnim. To je vaš dom, znate. Ne morate izvaditi ijednu uskršnju/božićnu/bilokakvu dekoraciju ako se vama to ne sviđa.

  1. Prelepa dekoracija, posebno ova korpica koju si modernizovala.
    Ja sam se baš ovog Uskrsa setila ovog načina ukrašavanja jaja, verovatno ću ga isprobati, ali narednih godina. :)

  9. We don't we really change up the decor in our home too often either and besides Christmas I don't do much seasonal decorating. It's always fun to get into the festive spirit though. I like your idea of keeping it simple and using what you already have. The traditional method which you have decorated your Easter eggs looks like a sure bet and the marbled effect is quite beautiful.

  10. Lots of homes are filled with treasures that the owners don't know what to do with. The term one man's trash is another's treasure comes to mind. I so agree with knowing what to do with what you have. I totally love what you did with the basket. Those eggs look so beautiful. I don't change my decor often but once in a while I run into a must have piece and I can't help myself. Hope your weekend was terrific Ivana!

  14. I meni se sviđaju pisanice bojane starih tehnikama: luk, vosak, listovi biljaka. Mi ih doma nismo tako radili vjerojatno preko 15 godina jer ipak smo bili klinci pa nam je to bilo dosadno i bezveze, ali moji djed i baka ih još uvijek na taj način oslikavaju.

  16. Dear Ivana, in the past I decorated a lot in each season! But I have to admit the older I get the less I do some decoration :) Honestly, I don't like to remove the decoration, maybe this is the reason. What you decorated for Easter is very lovely and now I want to try one piece of your cake immediately at it looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing this beautiful post.

READING UPDATE: PLAYER PIANO AND FAULT IN OUR STARS (BOOK REVIEWS)

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…

CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: MAKARSKA CITY, THE MAIN CITY SQUARE

Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…

JANUARY AND FEBRUARY HIGHLIGHTS

January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.
