Still Mad about Buttons: in Teal

Quite simple women felted slippers - hand dyed, with grey handmade felt covered button with seed beads. Love this variety of buttons - both simple ones and the ones with two holes.

SWAP: Early Christmas

SWAP, SWAP, SWAP.... Just couldn't resist this year and took participation in it - thanks to Daiva who organized all this! It's so fun to make gifts and it's so wonderful to receive them....
So, a few days ago, I've got a box.
 Quite heavy, really full of gifts!
 Something really sweet - Tahini dark milk chocolate, made in Lithuania.
 Very unusual card (love it!) and a letter... Calling me a "skilful fairy" (or "a fairy with golden hands" if translated word by word).
 A box with wonderful smell and beautiful angel:
 Let's see what the angels hides:
 Some home made tea (peppermint and lavender) for calm evenings (as if my Christmas elf knew that this is what I badly need at the moment....):
 A beautiful old cup filled with amazingly smelling wax:

 And one more thing - super tasty...

 Huge thanks to Karina!!! Couldn't expect a better gift!
To her words, Karina enjoys experimenting, trying, and dreaming. She loves strawberries on a grass stem, the smell of cinnamon, the beat of the sea, the breeze, the blinding whiteness of snow, reflections of sun, soap bubbles, freckles, story tales, eating with fingers, looking for new places and people, digging sand with her feet, jumping, doing stunts in her thoughts and so much more. Perfect words, the same I could tell about myself...

Hedgehog Story

In 2012 me and my friend made a deal - to take at least one photo per day and to post it on-line... So, it was 366 days or 2012: My Version. Not easy at all as not all days can be suitable for taking photos - due to the mood, the weather, the conditions and similar things... 366 photos were born. Some of them are not worth to be shown now for sure, some of them were just for fun, but some of them are working for me - can you imagine that? As, for example, this cute small African hedgehog. Here goes his photo:

by the way, I do hate how the photo changes after uploading it to my blog - somehow it darkens a lot... HERE you can find the original version, much better, to my opinion.
This small woodland creature found his place in people hearts for sure. And he looks good on the cup, don't you think so?

Still Mad about Buttons


100 % handmade pure natural beige felted slippers with original decoration made of turquoise handmade felt covered button, fabric and small seed beads. 
I'm still made about those handmade buttons! It takes time to make them - to felt a fabric, to cover the button base, but I still love them.... They are so beautiful and so versatile.
