friday favourites!


I back with a little eye candy aka my Friday favourites!

This is true! A little challenging for me since I'm not a morning person! ;)

If flowers don't inspire you...I don't know what will!

I do love white kitchens but what caught my eye is the white and black stripped rug...I want to crochet a throw exactly like this for my bed!


I will be announcing the winner of my little giveaway on Monday...until then have a lovely weekend!

happy mail + sweet little giveaway

Hope all is well!
I screwed up my back (which is very easy to do since I have a bad back) yesterday mowing my neighbours lawn so a lot of moans and groans from me today! ;)

I received some happy mail yesterday! My sweet little pot arrived created by the talented (and super nice) Marina Marinski! This is my first purchase but not my last...I want to buy a plate to hang in my daughter's room and I need another little something for my office...or bedroom...

Marina's got an Etsy shop filled with her wonderful handmade ceramics.
Like I mentioned she's super friendly and her English is awesome (for all those non-Croatian folks wondering).

 You can find her sweet ceramics all the way in Australia (among other countries) and I just love following her success and creations! 

And here's my sweet little ceramic pot, perfect home for my succulent plant! LOVE her rosy cheeks! I'll have to name this pot...any suggestions! :) She's made her home on my kitchen window sill where I spend a lot of time.

Marina's also on facebook!

The latest I read is that you can now find her ceramics in Vancouver Canada too!

I had sent her some of my stamps a while back and she was sweet enough to send me this adorable ceramic brooch. I've decided to pass her generosity and do a little giveaway! :)

So if you'd like to win this Marina Marinski handmade ceramic brooch please leave a comment and I'll randomly choose a winner. Everyone is welcomed to play a long...so I hope you do! :)

Have a great day!

vrsi 2014

Update: For those who won my crochet heart tags, I'm so sorry I'm so late sending them...unfortunately my husband lost two relatives in a matter of couple of days and left for the funerals....it left me out of it for a couple of days. I hope you understand. All will be send this week!

And I'm back! Wish we could have stayed longer but grateful for the 2 weeks we had! :)

We stayed in Vrsi Mulo with my aunt (who lives in Canada and comes for the whole summer in her home in Vrsi Mulo). Isn't it just gorgeous!! Her house is the third up from the beach...1 minute walk people!! My Baba (grandma who is 92 years old and still going strong, she's got an older sister and brother too!) was born in Vrsi so when ever I go somewhere with my aunt I get introduced to family I am not aware of....it seems I'm related to half the locals there! :)

The beach is a mix of pebbles and rock and it's clean and beautiful!

I know I've got the skinniest kids!! LOL! Both my husband and I were skin and bone when we were kids. Don't have that problem anymore! ;)
My oldest is giving the thumbs up...the youngest is standing like he owns the beach! lol!

I wore this gorgeous blue nail polish by Essie most of the time called lapiz of luxury but I assure you it looks so much different in real life...here in the photo it looks much brighter than it really is.

I ate so many figs....I lost count!


My aunt took us out for pizza at this hotel/restaurant called Vukić which happens to be owned by my mother's best childhood friend and her husband(they were inseparable) so it was great meeting her and her husband. Their hotel is right on the beach...I don't know why I didn't take a photo of it so I found one online.

We had yummy pizza, ćevapi and fries! The kids told me to leave a good tip so that should tell ya something about the food and service! :)

I'll be sharing more pictures of our time in Nin soon!
Have a great day!
