A poppies talе

From a simple shoe care untensiles box to a passioned summer mood chest.
Now the question is what to treasure inside!

24.05. – Day of the Cyrillic alphabet

They call it Slavic, Russian mostly, Macedonians have some issues about territorial origin of it now, but do you know that it was given to the world from one Bulgarian monk, called Cyrill? Togheter with his brother Methodius, also a monk, he was working on it at the Balkans.
Today I’m proud to explain the world this small fact, this forgotten worthiness.  Because I’m reared with this pride.

Now some forget to read or just don’t want to …

I know people reading about love, hate, struggle, health, reading for fun, for relaxation … DSC_0276 (14)DSC_0327 (12)DSC_0057 (43)
… to keep the memories aliveDSC_0084 (44) again and againDSC_0085 (42)
or just because this is the way it is … DSC_0978 (7)

Now I see people reading going to work …

Sometimes to read slowly about emergencies …

… but also to rush for reading …

All this I began to see first though the Cyrillic alphabet. So, thank you, for the alphabet!

Happy mother’s day

One more contradiction for me today. At the Eastern part of Europe we keep a holiday for the mother at the International woman’s day – the 8. March.
Exaclty two months later, today – at the second Sunday of May, it is at the Western world the Mother’s day. Both holidays spring from international woman’s movements, both dated even before the cold war.
On the other hand today is at the Christian-Ortodox Chirch Thomas’ Sunday – 7 days after Easter. The day of Thomas the Apostle, doubting Thomas who reached up to India to baptize. And because the traditions of this Chirch represent a beautiful implication of heathen and modern cusums at the Christianity … we give away dyed eggs again. This time – for the dead. So, I would say I perfect occasion to think about our deceased mothers too.

This is my contribution to the celebration of the Western Mother’s day. Those greeting cards I made for fife teachers who are in some way mothers of many.

Lesson on natural dyed eggs

Here they are! This year: very simple. Single color, but not so simple – orange marble. And that’s fine! Only 8 eggs, that’s ok too. No rush, no worries, only natural dying with ease. It’s the making of that counts, that makes you happy! And so I can go closer to the idea that this is the connection between dying eggs to celebrate a Christian Feast that everybody is asking himself what it has to do with it, at a country that did this celebration a whole month ago as I wasnt even here.
This year is a perfect occasion to think about many things, why not about the simple natural things!
And today, like every day until the end to say ourslevs we were saved, from God, Jesus Christ himself, with his Love!

The making of:
I collected for about two months the onion skins of the used in my home for cooking onion. Now I can tell you a secret: this you can make the whole year long because you can use them for so many beneficial things you can find for example collected as links here:
8 Onion Skin Uses
Thank you, Trash Backwards!

First I thought I would use the especially washed lace tights with the running ladder from yesterday. Than I say: stop! This isn’t natural, you are going to boil some nylon and you pay attention to such things now! I seek without success the last year’s cotton jursey I cutted from an old clothing for this dying, in vane. I need something new, something natural to envelop the eggs and come upon the idea to use sewing-cotton and have acctually some natural on hand, not dyed whith who knows what. I can use the now dyed one and the not used lace tights for some creation later. And will let you know about!  DSC_0097DSC_0099DSC_0100DSC_0104DSC_0105DSC_0106DSC_0107DSC_0108DSC_0109DSC_0110
The eggs stayed at the water for the whole night. This is their morning beauty:
