What a day is today: it is my mother's birthday, it was Rudolf Steiner's birtday 150 years ago and is the the day of my 2nd giveaway. I wrote all comments and follows and did a draw. Here is the result:

This great strawberry necklace goes to my dear follower friend Mojca. Please allow me some days before shipping it, it is not finished yet. And please share a photo of you wearing it :)


My first award since I started my own blog

Yes, yes!!! Suprisingly, couple of days ago, came a sweet message of my dear Greek friend Mirsini that my blog was chosen for my first award (

 :) Anybody who tastes that colourful sweet piece of cake will begin thinking "sweet" and only beautiful things will happen to him.  

I would like to share what makes my life so colourful and sweet:
  • my family: my dear husband and my best friend and two sons
  • taking care for my boys, cats and lovely house
  • being creative: knitting, crocheting, sewing and felting
  • reading books (but not in the last months, now so many blogs take all of my reading time)
  • cooking vegetarian meals
  • shopping for shoes (right now I can't decide which one to buy from this site: Deerberg)
  • window shopping (I get much of this lately - strolling with my baby)
  • writing my blog
  • strolling with my friends and our babies
  • travelling around the world ...
And now I am passing this award forward to the ten blogs I like a lot:

Please continue the protocol of this award and give it to the next 10 blogs that you like!

Happy Valentines

Out of boredom came these birds. On a cloudy Sunday like today there is nothing more fun than baking. We invited some spring spirits into our home and baked the kamut birds.

The recipe is easy: kamut flour, spelt drink, some sugar and olive oil, yeast and cloves for eyes. I rolled the dough that has risen two times, made a big knot and inserted two cloves for eyes. I let them risen again and baked them for very short time.

Beautiful winter day

Clear sky, unusually warm for winter - beautiful day! We visited the Bled castle but forgot the camera at home. What a shame.

"Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 metres above the glacial Lake Bled is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia – Bled Castle. The image of the castle forming a dramatic backdrop to the romantic island and the church on it has earned the resort worldwide recognition through the centuries. Castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and the island, down the De┼żela area with Lesce and Radovljica and over to the mountain ranges of the Karavanke and the Julian Alps."

You can still some photos of it  but I wanted to share some details of the windows shutters or beautiful metal sparrows on the fence above the precipice. When we go there for the next time :)

And the Carnival is coming in a month. I am crocheting a helmet for my big "knight to be". We got some ideas for the knight's costume today, My husband will sew a small leather purse, he has already made the sword and the shield. I hope my son will stick to the idea of being a knght and not change to the pirate ;)
