Winter + Summer

I love shooting winter clothes in summer! It's just so fun! And when you look at this photos in winter you remember the hot summer days...

This is a fun hand felted hat. Its form is very unique and fashion forward. This hat is very soft (made from soft merino wool) and light and perfect for fall-winter season! 

This felted hat will definitely add an edgy twist to your outfit. Also such accessory will bring you lots of positive emotions because it was made with much love and care.

This hat will soon appear in my Etsy shop. You can find my other hats here.

Best wishes!

Well it's Monday today (at least for me :) and Monday is usually quite a hard day. And I think something inspiring can give you just a little boost to go through the whole week! =)

So let's start! Today my Monday inspiration is:  
"Traveling back home" (ha, an urgent thing for me since I'm going from home back to studies :)

Globe Travel Necklace from lunashineshine
Travel Vintage Look Luggage Labels sticker A from fancyshop

Don't you think that coming back home from vacation is always such a special occasion? :) Your friends and family are meeting your at the airport (or somewhere else) and you are so happy to see them after such a long time! And then you show them all the different things you've bought, give some little presents and souvenirs, show pictures... And you almost go back to that places again :)

But I think the main thing is that when you come back home from vacation you always feel so inspired with everything you've seen and so ready to work for the rest of the year! Such a wonderful feeling!

Summer. part 3. Close to nature

As I've already said, the views there were fantastic, so of course we took lots of pictures of our felted accessories and toys)

It's amazing how natural felted items look in this environment.. May be they comliment each other so beautifully because wool is a natural material itself.

Inspired by nature

We were so glad to find these flowers which are so similar to the ones that we make! Don't they look beautiful together? ;)

And this little elf is like a child playing in the grass :)


Have a good week!

Summer. part 2. Sunsets

Here is my second post about our little vacation.

The thing that impressed me the most was the beauty of this place. The views were breathteaking!

One of the most amazing things that we did was meeting the sunset on the top of the hill. When you look down and can see how little our camp was, when you see small toy-like boats, when you can see where flows in the sea are, you just can find the right words to descrine your feelings. The only thing you can say in "Wow!"

Summer. part 1. Bereginja

Our vacation is over and it was a fantastic one! We did so many interesting things, met so many wonderful people and just had a good time :) I still haven’t unpacked all my stuff, but already uploaded some photos and I’m ready to share some of my impressions with you!

The camp where we stayed is like a big friendly family - we all come back to that place every summer so that's why we all know each other and we do a lot of activities together.

One day all the women of our camp decided to make a "bereginja".

"Bereginja" is a traditional Russian doll which symbolizes a female spirit in Slavic mythology. "Bereginja" is a  "hearth mother, protectoress of the home". "Bereginja" had a very special meaning. The word "bereginja" comes from the russian words "cherish", "guardian". She guarded the house from all the misfortunes. Its presence in the house scared away demons and evil spirits. So we made this doll in order to protect our camp and people who stay there from all the bad things that can happen.

The shape of the doll is usually very simple  - it symbolized the image man in general. But the clothes was very beautiful, bright and festively decorated (we did it with flowers, dog rose, riddons).

"Bereginja's" head is always covered with white cloth. The head symbolizes the spiritual essence of man. "Bereginja" never has a face. To depict a person forbidden, so the doll is not possessed by an evil spirit, which can hurt a person whom it is protecting. Also the eyes - a mirror of the soul - must be closed to protect the inner world of unexpected effects of the outer world.

The doll signifies the union of man and nature, solitude and our closeness to the mysterious forces of nature.

I have a good feeling about it)

Well, it's about 23:45 here, almoust everything is packed (wow, that was a hard thing to do!) and I'm about to go to sleep... Even though I'm pretty tired I'm not sure I'll be able to fall asleep quickly because I'm so excited about this trip! =) I don't know, I guess that's just my personality because it happens to me every year))))
