Such a beautiful day- the first week in this autumn and so great, really love it !!! Although I have to study for my exams which rest for me but also don’t forget making new things. I had this bold blue color bolero  and I didn’t like so much so tried to change color into the black. Actually it’s between black/blue but I like it, right now it’s more comfortable, I can use it with more outfits. Only I didn’t think  at first that threads won’t change the color.. So at first I tried to resew it but finally decided that it’s more interesting with this mix of colors. ((:

Yes.. So fast came the end of the summer. Today I’ve talked with my dad that it’s really strange how the weather is changing here: now June u more used to me a month of spring and September is more hot, like a month of summer. Also every time and season has it’s own feeling and mode. I like falling leaves, rainy days, but I need something warm to feel myself very cosy and comfortable.  Here’s little of my outfits inspiration.               

 

I hope this also inspire you and you’ll also enjoy the start of fall.

Xo xo,
Domilė

 

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 ((:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really love this kind of dresses (shirt-dress) as they are very comfy. I didn’t want to buy one, but thought I could make one by myself. And this was my little inspiration:

  

But as I had less and less free time and I think to sew something like this needs a lot of time or actually more experience, decided this is not a project for a fast and quick result. I should say I was really lucky as I found very old mom’s robe which I didn’t like to wear but neither could throw away:

 

So I thought this could be great, only I need to  change the color and maybe to make it shorter, so I bought black paint for material and tried it, here’s the result:

The color is between grey and green, neutral. I liked it and actually this time it didn’t seem too long, so I didn’t make any more changes:

I like the result and how now it looks, and I liked changing color so right now decided to change more old clothes, will see how it will turn out. And what’s really surprising- that this costed me only 3 of Lithuanian money to buy the paint and well, few hours changing, that’s all ((:

I know this is not a project which I should be proud of but the result I like very very very much and it took only 20min to make it !!

It was a while I wanted new shorts, beige color. At home I had new pants which brought my aunt from France but I didn’t like them and never wore it. Instead of throwing it away I made shorts:

  

 

I finally have a little bit more of free time for my blog. Really sorry for those, who waited news so long- this summer is of work, life experiences and skills of foreign languages and communication with people adventure. Quite funny that I need always so much time to relax but right now it’s a little bit better, feeling that it’s only few weeks more are left before my vocation gave another breath of energy.. But right now about this new projects… 🙂

Ruffles ruffles ruffles.. Don’t know what actually happened to me but during this summer I started liking them very much !!

  

 


I found very nice and inspiring blog which idea I liked very much, here: http://tearosehome.blogspot.com/2010/01/tutorialruffle-shirt.html

I was very inspired and decided to change one old T-shirt which I didn’t like by cuting parts from another one. It’s a pity I don’t have photos how it looked before, but here’s the result:

I like it so much, that will try to renew other, also white T-shirt. I also have some new projects which will be showed very soon. Hope this will inspire you :))

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 ((:

During these days I’m really busy (uff…) : work, preparing for exams and studies but still hope to reach this period of my life !!

Well, recently I wanted to share with you one of my very old ideas by making very easy  and very simple earrings !!

  

   

I’ve just glued the little metal stripe to the back part of bottom, and  that’s it- easy and fast work  (: Also, I didn’t cut in the back part that plastic part of bottom but for me it was unnecessary as it doesn’t disturb me, but few friends of mine made this and they look little bit better ((:

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 ((:

This is one of the easiest but really cute projects which I’ve ever made. I don’t know if you remember but before few weeks I recycled old sweater:

  

So I had sleeves left. I didn’t throw them away (hm.. I guess in some cases it might look greediness than frugality). Still I had idea to use a part of them somewhere. And suddenly I got an idea: wristlets !!

   

So I cut the top of sleeve and sew it. Measured my hand and narrowed how much I needed. In the right is photo how looks the back of it.

  

I wanted to make some decor so added bows made of ribbon (once again bows.. 🙂 )

 

I like how they came out. Hope this will help you to make your own wristlets. Have a nice day ((:
