Some of ideas which I like to share with you, my dear readers ((: This is what I have liked since my childhood. And as right now there are so many many possibilities (one can buy chalboard paint or even make it by oneself !!), it’s only one’s inspiration and realization ((: Myself, I have already little board on which I stick some photos of my dreams and goals, and do some notes. One friend of mine told me about here ‘motivation’ board and this really helps !! during one year I reached all my goals, so now it’s only decision of new ones and how fast I’ll reach them (: Anyway, coming back to chalkboards, as you can see from photos, it’s not only a means of studying or a decor part, one can make also little gifts with it !!!

Heee… Although this event had passed before few weeks I still want to share with you guys  :))

Kitchen is really the best place to ave a really nice chat. It’s the place there I can share my ideas and opened heart accept ideas from others. Maybe this is also one of reasons why I passed so much time in the kitchen this summer (or maybe not 😉 )

Actually, I had a very great cooker next to me 😉

    

 

 

So, starting with the very first dinner (still remember so firstly time good prepared shrimps which I tasted) , the Arabic dinner,  simple pic-nics, so cosy breakfast times, Turkish meal , Hungarian pancakes and finally amazing soups !! Everything was really really great, I really felt as I had traveled a lot  as with traditional meal we listened that region traditional music. So.. This is what I decided to make as a birthday present:

As you can see from photos the gift was accepted with joy. Unfortunately after the very first washing I saw my decoupage technique mistake: paintings were almost gone //: (still hope to fix this in the future). The longest part was making this phrase. But, I think this cred is worth this job ;))

So this is ho we work :))

Oh.. and honey, trust me, your pizza was really the best in the world !!! ;)*

I’ve had had trades before few months I got these vintage style shoes:

I liked these photos how they look like, but on feet it didn’t look so well, as the front part was too small and it was really uncomfortable to walk,  so I decided to change a little bit.

 

I added ruffles, little strap and 2 buttons as a decoration. The nicest part is that they are really comfortable right now ((:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another nice way how to reuse some items. This was the start of using decoupage technique. Actually I needed few boxes to put my clothes in the wardrobe as it was really too messy. And I didn’t want to buy them. I remembered that in one magazine there was photo instructions how to decorate with napkins but unfortunately I didn’t find it. So I googled and found instructions. Interesting was that there were only few people hooked by this technique and after 1 year it became a fashion thing. Still.. These were my very first projects and I want to share this idea: recycling, reusing, saving money and etc ((: Here are few examples:

  

This box I decorated using old newspapers. Wanted something black & white. I used white acrylic paint,  only sticked newspaper pieces  with special glue and used very simple acrylic varnish.

              

And this one was one of my firsts boxes: I mixes acrylic white paint with a little of blue gouache  and sticked over it (dry of course) few napkins and finished work also by using simple acrylic varnish. That’s all ((:

It’s a pity that right now I don’t have any free time: nor for new projects. neither for any private life and free time.. Well, won’t here put my disasters and tiredness.. Wish you all nice Friday ((:

Although I start working from today and I won’t be making some delicious joys in my kitchen, but still I wanted to share with you 3 cool recipe ideas which I found during my blogging.

Here’s brocoli cake, which I found here: http://www.notquitenigella.com/2011/02/16/broccoli-forest-cake/
This is such a great  idea for the Earth day or simply for nice dinner :DD I added this recipe to my ‘future preparing’ list.

I loved this idea how to make egg salad !! Really original and interesting solution how to surprise Easter event’s guests ((: Recipe is here: http://www.hungryhappenings.com/2011/04/fun-idea-for-easter-brunch-carrot.html And this is also another recipe in my future list :DD

I was making something similar mixing corn crisps with honey and nuts or caramel and a little butter. But seems to be more crazy, ha :DD Recipe is here: http://cookiesandcups.blogspot.com/2011/01/popcorn-cake.html

Hope you also like these recipes and they inspire you ((:

As I won’t be connected hole weekend (yes, this means ‘opening summer  job season’) I wish you to have a nice weekend ((:

So beautiful morning and day… Since very early childhood I knew that this day is special- it’s spirit, all traditions, games which we played. I remember how with brothers, cousins and friends we went asking ‘gifts’ in neighbourhood, games with eggs, all cuisine and that feeling of already come in spring (((:

Today we celebrated quite calm, only as always my parents made a revolution in the kitchen: prepared too many dishes ((: Here are few pictures from today’s table (which was really big): mom baked 2 pies, I like them very much, every time she uses different ingredients (berries, fruits, apples, etc..). Also we painted traditionally eggs with herbs. And I really wanted to try to make something new, so.. made tiramisu (really love it !!)  

 

  

I found it’s recipe here, it’s a pity here it’s in Lithuanian but as it’s really traditional, surely in net there are plenty of them ((:

Hope you also enjoy your Easter, time which you can spend with very important persons ((:

   

   

  

  

  

If…  If one  day I’ll have a tattoo , it will be one of these, for sure  (((:

Yes, finally the weather is quite good and I am able to make photos of my really latest works !!! So.. in my wardrobe found few T-shirts which were new, but.. I don’t like wearing them. I took really big one (size L), so soft material !! But in the back side was very big publicity note :

  

So I decided to cut out it.. I made opened back, removed sleeves and changed the front part. And made something new what right now I just love !!!

  

  

Hope this inspires.. (: I’m also very glad that today is so sunny !! And.. First time in my life my younger brother so easily helped me when I asked him to make photos :DD So really… miracles happens (:

Another taste of summer…  I was quite lucky to find a very cheap bikini. Unfortunately, the bottom part was too big for me.. Still I bought it as I loved the material- navy and dots !!! So I decided to try to resize it. I cut the long of the bottom and also narrowed it. As I didn’t like the top, I used something from my old bikini to make it more solid:

Here’s how it looked before and now:

I like the result how it looks now !! Interesting was that I have navy with white dots material and was searching for an inspiration to sew a new dress, one of my previous posts was about it !! Still I plan to make it but the funniest part was that after publishing this inspiration post I bought this bikini.. And finally today I have resewed it, quite easy way to make something nicer for summer  ((:

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the lovely and shinny morning !! Also, here’s the link how to prepare the heart cake, loved that idea and hope one day to make one by myself !! ((:
