Week 8 - windows everywhere

My bedroom window is quite new but already in needs of new curtains - after I washed the flowered fabric a few times the pattern almost disappeared.

The view through the window above used to be my favourite but at the moment it's a building site - I pity those workers as they really have bad luck with all the floods, rain and snow.

 We couldn't make a triangular window in our new bathroom.

This is my favourite view but the photo is horrible - the weather was too bad to go out on the balcony to take it.

The smallest windows in our house are the ones in the staircase. They used to be round but when we renovated the house round windows were simply too expensive and impractical to clean.

These two wonderful shop windows are from Paris, I took the photos exactly four years ago. Paris is certainly not lacking in awesome windows!

Have a nice week!

Week 7 - shapes and week 6 - days 5-7

After a crazy week I have lots of catching up to do.

                              I tried to create some fluid lines with mosaic pieces on my mirror.

                                                I just love the diamond border stamp.

       polymer clay heart - made by Carol Blackburn (a gift at her workshop in Nottingham)

                                   My very simple and handmade models for oval polymer bangles.

                                               the triangle on my polymer clay desk

                                                          round bottles of acrylic paints

                                         My polymer pendant I wore last Monday.

Days 6 and 7 (week 6) - that was the first photo posted on my craft blog Mlin nakitin on 18th February 2009. I am celebrating its 5th anniversary in two days time. Even then the photo was digital and I have thousand of digital photos taken from 2008 on and also lots and lots of paper photos taken from 1993 on (the birth of my first daughter). I can't decide what I  like better.

Day 5 - the power of advertising

JAT was the most important airline in ex-Yugoslavia. They had a TV ad where one of their planes was landing with "El Condor Pasa" by Simon and Garfunkel playing in the background. To this day I can't hear this song without a picture of a plane landing appearing in my mind. And I never flew with them!

Have a lovely week, I hope to post regularly this week - we are on holidays!

Week 6 - media moments - day 1 and week 5 - winter views

Good evening from a country trapped in ice. I couldn't write during the week-end due to heavy snow and rain which caused electricity cuts as a huge number of trees broke because of ice. We are very lucky right now to have everything in order - a huge number of people are still cut off from the rest of the country or without electricity. Lots of schools cancelled classes today but not mine. That said I can show today's photo and the ones from last week.

                                           my favourite picture from Paris (Orangerie - huge paintings by         Monet where you can see the water and branches moving gently in the wind)

                                                   day 7 - my feet in hand-knitted socks

                                  day 6 - frequently visited place - the river behind my house

                                             day 5 - my favourite outfit modelled for me by my daughter

                                          day 4 - my daughters don't like to be photographed, which leaves my hubby playing on his flight simulator

                                            day 3 - sky view last Wednesday

                                                    day 2 - our favourite winter meal - lasagna

                                                day 1 - garden view last Monday - for today's view add lots of snow and ice (every branch and stem is encased in it)

Hope the weather is nicer at your places. It is February already and that is quite near the spring (says the eternal optimist).
Have a safe and nice week,
