Sugar Easter Eggs


 Easter week was filled with lots of work, traveling and constant running. 
That`s why I couldn`t keep my promise I made in my  last post and show you earlier my new project - Sugar Easter eggs.

Uskršnja nedelja mi je bila ispunjena obavezama, putovanjem i neprekidnim trčkaranjem tamo amo.
Zato nisam stigla da ispunim obećanje iz prethodnog posta i pokažem vam ranije moj novi projekat - Šećerna Uskršnja jaja.


Eggs are made ​of sugar mixed with little water and food color and decorated with royal icing.
This technique has been long known, but it was new to me and very interesting.
Great thing is that eggs are empty, so you can put candy or note inside.

Jaja sam napravila od mešavine šećera, malo vode i boje za kolače i ukrasila rojal masom.
Ova tehnika je već dugo poznata, ali je za mene bila nova i vrlo zanimljiva.
Super je što su jaja šuplja, tako da unutra mogu da se stave bombonice ili poruka. 
Remaining sugar I used to made lovely sugar cubes!

Ostatak šećera sam iskoristila da napravim zanimljiv i neobičan šećer u kockama.


Have a beautiful start of weekend!

Želim vam divan početak ovog prazničnog vikenda!

Shabby little things


Do you like shabby little things at your home?
Romantic, delicate...
Yes, me too!
Da li volite shabby sitnice u vašem domu?
Romantične, nežne...
Da, i ja!
This little beauty is made of cart board ice cream box. 
You can see it at the bottom of the post.

Ova mala lepotica je nastala od kartonske kutije za sladoled!
Pogledajte poslednje dve fotografije na dnu posta.
Box is painted, decoupaged, and embelished with pretty pink and lilac roses, rose buds and white lace. I painted a little lilac on  the pink rose buds, just to color coordinate all.
Inside of the box is gold and shiny.

Kutija je obojena, dekupažirana, ukrašena ružičastim i lila ružama, pupoljcima i belom čipkom. Doslikala sam ružice i pupoljke lila bojom, tek da sve bude u skladu.
Unutrašnjost je zlatna i sjajna.
Blue and white patterned  bottom of the box has a little lace too. Blue coordinate perfect with the pink and lilac. Don`t you agree?

Plavo belo dno kutije je takođe ukrašeno malenom čipkom. Plava čini divan sklad sa ružičastom i lila, zar ne?
Love the simple beauty of flowers, both real one, as well as decoupaged one.

Uživam u jednostavnoj lepoti cveća, kako pravog, tako i onog dekupažiranog.
Ice cream box before!

Kutija od sladoleda pre!

Recycling is always so fun!
Hope you like it...

Recikliranje je uvek tako zabavno! 
Nadam se da vam se dopada... 
:)

Off to my next project I will share with you in a day or two!
Bacam se na sledeći projekat, koji ću podeliti sa vama za dan, dva.
Happy weekend!

DIY Cloche



Some time ago I had an accident and broke my beautiful candy bowl. Bottom of the bowl was broken and it was no longer usable.
Rather than throw it away, I began to think what to do with the part that remained intact? The idea was to turn a broken bowl into something beautiful...
For this makeover I needed just a bit of rope and hot glue gun.
Top of my new cloche was very sharp and dangerous, so I wrapped it with the rope and secured it with hot glue. Now it`s safe and lovely!For the end of this makeover I just added a couple of little flowers in the spirit of spring and there you have it! My new DIY cloche! Isn`t it lovely?!
Oh, this lily`s smells so good!! Sending you a spring greeting!!


Pre nekog vremena sam imala nezgodu i razbila sam lepu posudu za bombone. Dno posude je puklo i posuda više nije bila upotrebljiva. 
Ali, umesto da je bacim, ja sam počela da razmišljam šta da uradim sa delom koji je ostao netaknut? Ideja je bila da je pretvorim u nešto korisno i lepo.
Za ovaj makeover mi je bilo potrebno samo malo kanapa i pištolj za vrući lepak. Vrh mog novog zvona, koji je bio veoma oštar i opasan, sam obmotala kanapom i osigurala uz pomoć vrućeg lepka. 
Za kraj sam dodala par cvetića u duhu proleća i evo ga! Moje novo, DIY zvono za kolače! Zar nije slatko?!
Ah, kako mirišu zumbili... Šaljem vam prolećni pozdrav!

My clipboard featured on Hometalk

As we all know, the type of paint called Chalk Paint much is being said and written in the blogosphere. Easy to use and practical color that allows it to be colored in almost any surface without the hassle and preparation. Just what we need. The preparation is always the most boring part of the job, requires time and has nothing to do with the creative part of the work we are interested in. 

That's why this type of paint is ideal for all creative people, because it is applied to almost any surface, can be at any shade, fast dries, it can be easily sanded, and most importantly, the finished product looks good. But,well-known brand of Chalk Paint is quite expensive and not available everywhere in the world, so imaginative bloggers came up with a way to fight. They made it at home with stuff they already have, and star is born - DIY Chalk Paint.

There is a lot of different recipes for preparing this color on the internet and blogs, and opinions are divided too. In any case, it's worth to try because the ingredients can be found at very affordable prices and the preparation itself is very simple and fast. 

My research of the net on this subject resulted in a Chalk Paint prepared with calcium carbonate.  It can be purchased online and it`s very inexpensive. 
I personally tried the recipe on piece of furniture, so if you missed that post, all the details can be found here.
Liz Storch, Community Manager on Hometalk really loved that post, so she asked me to curate clipboard on Hometalk on DIY Chalk Paint tips.

The original board can be found on Hometalk here.
As you can see onthe beginning of the post, that board recived appropriate treatment, great pinnable graphic from the Hometalk professional team, and now my beautified clipboard is ready for publication and feturing on Hometalk email and social platforms.

I want to thank again Liz and great people on Hometalk for this great opportunity and wonderful cooperation!!

Kao što svi znamo, o vrsti boje koja se zove Chalk Paint mnogo se govori i piše u blogosferi. Jednostavna za upotrebu i praktična boja koja omogućava da se oboji skoro svaka površina bez muke i pripreme. Baš ono što nam treba. Jer priprema je najdosadniji deo posla koji iziskuje vreme, a nema baš nikakve veze sa onim kreativnim delom posla koji nas zanima. 

Zbog toga je ova boja idealna za sve kreativce, jer se nanosi na gotovo svaku podlogu, može biti u bilo kojoj nijansi, brzo se suši, lako se može šmirglati i što je najvažnije, gotov proizvod lepo izgleda. 

No, poznata marka ove boje je dosta skupa i nije dostupna svuda u svetu, pa su maštovite blogerke smislie način da boju naprave same i tako je nastao pojam DIY Chalk Paint. Recepata za pripremu boje ima dosta na internetu i blogovima, a mišljenja o njoj su podeljena. 

U svakom slučaju vredi probati neki od recepata jer se sastojci mogu naći po veoma pristupačnim cenama a sama priprema je veoma jednostavna i brza. Moje istraživanje interneta na ovu temu rezultiralo je izborom boje koja se priprema sa Kalcijum karbonat-om koji je moguće nabaviti online i veoma je jeftin. Pre nekog vremena sam recept i lično probala na jednom komadu nameštaja, pa ako ste propustili taj post sve detalje možete pogledati ovde.

Ovaj post se veoma dopao Liz Storch, Community Manager-u
Hometalk-a, pa me je pozvala da priredim jedan clipboard na Hometalku-u na temu DIY Chalk Paint. 
Originalni board možete pogledati na Hometalk-u: ovde

Kao što ste na početku i videli, ovaj clipboard je dobio i odgovarajući tretman, pinnable grafiku od stručnog tima Hometalk-a, pa je tako ulepšan spreman za objavljivanje i isticanje na Hometalk-ovom email-u i društvenim platformama.

Ovom prilikom želim da se zahvalim Liz i prijateljima sa Hometalk-a na poverenju i divnoj saradnji!
