A daughter is one of the most beutiful gifts this world has give to me.

Hi everyone, I am still alivel. Just trying to get back into blogging.
I came across this wonderful photos on net.

Original Allison Cosmos honeysuckle white door handpainted from page.
I paint sometimes, but to be honest I can´t imagine paint something like this. My paintings are "infantile".
I am addicted to colours, but I am not brave enough. I have got red sofa, orange courtins but white walls. So then I can affrod more colours in the interior and more "mad" pictures.
One of them: I made Goldilocks. In real there isn´t black background. Soon will be replaced. I try to paint a dandelion. I'm sorry I did not manage to paint lilak. All the time on flower I was in hospital. So maybe the next year.

Everybody´s room design for girls is like Ice-cream - pistachio in combination with pink. Almost the same.

I grab it there.I like this French-Themed Girls' Bedroom with Parisian accent, but as I said before the latest trend so everyone has the same. It is pity a armchair isn´t pink or white.
Of course you can´t go wrong with white, but as I have bought my flat and started buying things it looked like mission impossible.

Corn or corn potholder on two needles and crochet


~Chill Out Land of Beauty~

I am at home. After surgery I have bilateral vocal cord paralysis. In bilateral paralysis, both cords generally lie within 2 to 3 mm of the midline, and the voice is of good quality but of limited intensity. The airway, however, is inadequate. Vocal cord paralysis affects my ability to speak and even breathe because the air passage to the trachea is blocked. My nerves aren´t damage. I will be OK, but now I don´t know when.
I am loving this video, it is beautiful eye candy.

Happy Mother's Day ladies!

Thinking too of those whose mums are no longer with us, ... I hope you all have a lovely day with your children or friends.
Japanese inspiration for you.

Wagashi (Japanese cuisine) - a traditional Japanese confectionery, served with green tea. They differ from traditional confectionery products that are prepared exclusively from natural ingredients: rice dough, bean test, oilseeds, roots and similar zernoovoschnyh products, as well as seaweed agar-agar. In addition, the composition wagashi include nuts, chestnuts and dried fruits. Some species contain green tea, herbs, natural flower nectar. For the Japanese, as is known, is important not only taste but also the form of any product, including sweets. - here

In early June, when Japan was not yet over the rainy season, the tea is served wagashi translucent colored hydrangea with pale green leaves, symbolizing youth and freshness of nature. 
In the hottest time of тhе year - summer -  they served transparent or translucent wagashi on agar-agar.

The tradition of making proper Japanese sweets, or Wagashi, originates in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. when the Japanese learned to cook pasta with red beans and yam (sweet potato).
I do not like gelatin, but I guess I'll have to reassess my opinions, because it looks really cool.
Happy Mother's Day ladies!

I had a blouse from Tibet. I think there was used similar technique becouse it looked like there are mirrors inside the embroidery.

A tutorial: Fabric rose wallet - really nice idea.

I am considering doing something like this.
I also like this headbands
I will show you a result, I am not home.

Laozi, a great Chinese philosopher once said: "Every journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." That’s exactly what I’m asking you to do starting today. Don’t look at the huge "mountain" that you need to climb, but just concentrate on the path you’ve got to follow.

Have a lovely weekend and see you soon.

I LOVE this video

It's a celebration of femininity.

Adorable Pink Poodle

By: Nancy Anderson for Red Heart Yarn 

Incredible how fast the days have swept by. But now I am really glad, becouse I have been waiting for surgery. My thyroid is asymmetrically enlarged, inhomogeneous. There are two hypoechoic nodes 3 and 4 mm in the upper and one hypoechoic node 9 mm in the lower segment of the right lobe. Left flap permeated with one huge node. 
So now I have been looking for what to do in hospital. You will fall in love with this free crochet pattern the moment you lay eyes on it. This poodle is fun to have and make a great gift.

Royal wedding dresses: a history

Hi friends!
I really like this video. Have you been glued to the TV, watching the Royal wedding? I loved the Kate Middleton's wedding dress. Find out what the dresses say about attitudes to royal marriage, about the the state of the nation - and about the personality of the brides who wore them.

Hope you're having a great week wherever you may be :)

Thanks Gaby
