I am just in the process of putting together a post about surfaces and backgrounds I like to use in my photography. As a part of that I have taken about seven zillion pictures of happy and colorful flowers. Pure joy!
I thought I could send you one of those pictures right now, tell you I love you and wish you a happy weekend too!
So, a happy weekend to you all! Love you!
This is my new ring.
It seems that I am slowly turning into a nature fairy with all the time I have spent at my parents’ house surrounded by nothing else but a wild forest.
I love the ring, except for the fact that to keep it nice and fresh I need to have my hand dipped in water all the time.
This was a story of a girl that might be going slightly mad…
P.S.: Please, don’t send help, send eggnog, please.
Let’s get a little girly now… let’s talk FLOWERS!
Not that I know much about them.
But still, I love them very much… and I want to learn.
I especially love flowers in pots. Bunches of cut flowers are not that much to my taste (…I really don’t want to say this out loud… But I somehow can’t get rid of the feeling that they might not be… hmm… kind of… living. Sorry. But then, that’s my own impression… my crooked, cross-eyed impression. So it doesn’t really matter that much.)
Luckily, there’s a special person in my life who understands flowers and is willing to teach me.
Yes, of course, it’s my Mom.
My loveliest, best-est, perfect-est Mom.
These are all my Mom’s new orchids.
It’s her new hobby – to grow orchids.
And when she starts something, she starts it BIG.
I love that about her.
Her collection is growing at rapid speed.
There are loads of buds and loads of flowers in bloom.
I got really amazed as I walked into the room and saw them for the first time – these beauties create a truly special and romantic atmosphere.
Oh… and then I took my camera outside to make a few snaps of the lovely flowers that my Mom grows in her garden.
A soul-warming view – that describes pretty accurately what I saw there.
I’ll be sending the pictures soon.
‘Cause you know what?
I just want to make you as happy as possible…

I love working with yarn.
I love knitting, I love crocheting… I just love everything that has something to do with yarn.
It seems to have some magic power over me.
The colors, the needles, the stitches – they transport me into a quiet, peaceful and happy universe.
And I am really lucky to be surrounded by people who like to use the things I make for them (except for my boyfriend – I just can’t make him like and wear slippers like these … and I can’t figure out why).
I made these for my Mom…
Flowers – they make me so happy.
I love to be surrounded by flowers – real or made of yarn – any kind of a flower makes my heart sing.
If you speak the crochet language and would like to create a flower like this, then I have a little surprise for you.
THE FLOWER PATTERN everybody!
And it’s really easy.
As you can see the flower consists of two layers.
They are both made separately – first, the top flower with the yellow center and red edges and then the bottom red flower.
These two flowers are simply sewn together afterward.
Abbreviations: Ch – chain, Sl st – slip stitch, Sc – single crochet, Hdc – half-double crochet, Dc – double crochet
The crochet language – so impressive!
Enjoy dear friends!
