random goodness


Hope all is well!
I got my samples of my new stamps the other day and I had to stamp them up! :) They are available for pre-order and I'm expecting the stamps to come sometime next week.

Fall is here in a couple of days so why not have a little 40% off my Autumn Blessings stamp set sale! :)

Today is my oldest son Marko's birthday!! I can't believe he's 12!!! How time flies! 6:45 pm I gave birth to Marko, weighing a little over 10 pounds and 22 inches long.....drug free delivery!!! OUCH! 

He and I watched the Harry Potter movies together (it was our 'thing') and since he LOVES to read I thought the books would be a great gift (I tucked in some šoldi (cash) so he can get himself something).

Poor thing is sad on his birthday for our budgie Booboo died this morning right after they went to school.
I know I'm his mama but he's so handsome! :)

friday favourites


Hope all is well! 
I made it through the first week of school!! I'm going to have to blog about it so you an understand my crazy schedule!! :)

On to my Friday favourites!

Fall is around the corner and here in Zagreb it feels like it's been here for a while! This outfit (except for the rip in the knee...I'm afraid my OCD wouldn't have it! LOL) is totally me! casual, jeans, grey, white (and black pretty much make up my wardrobe...yawn...but I like it!) and love dark nail polishes too! 


These handmade ceramic cups make me smile! :) 

Are words even needed...really...I think not!

Have a great weekend!

#tbt + Nikola Tesla


How are ya doing? Good I hope!

It's #tbt (throw back Thursday) here on the blog and I'd like to share a trip I took with my family two years ago! :)

My oldest son was learning about Nikola Tesla and we wanted to take him to Tesla's home (which is now a museum) in Lika...and I'm so happy we did (it was my first time).
Lika is special to me....my father's side are from Lika....it's the feeling I get like 'blood is thicker than water'....something I can't explain but just feels like home.


Who is Nikola Tesla?? Well he is the man who lit up the world of coarse!

Here's a photo of my hubby and kids walking towards the house where Tesla was born.

Handsome if I do say so myself! :)

Google Nikola Tesla and have your mind blown away! This post would go on and on forever if I attempted to write about his genius mind, talent and achievements!

His home

His father was an orthodox priest and this is the little church next to their home.

It was amazing to see Marko's reaction to everything we saw...he read and learned about Tesla and then to actually see a bit of history..magical!

Inside Tesla's home is a museum filled with photos, articles, books, audios, films and some of his inventions....BRILLIANT....you're not suppose to take photo's inside but I had to take some!

He was a bit of a 'mad scientist' if you will! :)

We hoped to visit this summer again on our way home from Vrsi but it was too late...but we'll be coming back again for sure. If you visit Croatia this HAS to be one of your stops...you won't be disappointed...especially if you're the nerdy type! ;)
