Little Blue Owls

Greetings,

I am really liking this "Pretty Little Projects" posts. Especially since I am blogging about other peoples´ projects. I have a huge crush on this one. It is a super cute blue crochet Cell Phone Case with two little owls. Don´t you just love it? 

Danijela Grof made this one for her friend (I think) and the colours were chosen just for that person. I am not a fan of orange, but I do love blue. If this were for me, I would of chosen different colours - blue and white combination or maybe red and white. Can you picture it? :) I would even buy a huge vintage bronze button for it. Hmm.. It would fit in my purse like a charm :)


This week I am going for a short vacation. I am so happy I am going to spend some time with my family, barbecuing, having fun. This is my favourite part of summer! :) What is your favourite summer activity? 

Well, this was a short post, but I have some packing to do :D

Have a great week!

With love,

Do What You Love

Greetings,

it is Friday again! I guess for a last few weeks Fridays have been my "blogging days" :) I have a bit more free time on Fridays also I am excited about the upcoming weekend and happy - and I like to write when I am happy. It is all about positive thoughts, hope, love, expectations, family and everything good in life.

I have been reading a lot of positive thoughts for a last few weeks, because of my work. And I got really inspired in the process. So I got a few of new ideas for my future "Pretty Little Projects". I would like to try to paint on fabric. To make this unique designs, that are not printed on T-shirts but painted on. Did you try something like that already? I could use some advice :)

So..
Today I am writing about Crochet Pillows, yet another Pretty Little Project :) I love doing posts like this. To compliment someones efforts and make them feel proud about what they have done is always nice. This cute pillows were made by Danijela Grof. She is a very creative person as you can see. I love writing about her home made stuff because I know they are always well made and made with love. When she talks about her projects, she is always so excited about them, it is very inspirational. I love when people do what they love. A lot of people claim that they don´t have time for them selves, but maybe they just don´t make time. But Danijela does it all. Great job! :)


Different shades of brown and beige make this white pillows look great. In their family room, which is cottage cozy brown with a white palette sofa, they make a great addition. Cute little flowers are a good match with poppy flowers inspired art and photography on their walls.


Now this one is a lot more girly and it was made for her home office/room. I think a lot of girls would like to have this pillow. I love interior design and the things that make all the difference when you are decorating on a budget are these little details. It is something that makes a room look yours, to reflect your personality.


This one you have already seen. White guest room. Peaceful and cozy.
Which one is your favourite?

I hope you like them all.

With love,

Flower Crochet Curtains

Greetings,

Today I am sharing a very cute little project with you. It is not my work, I have to state that :) This cute curtains were made by Danijela Grof, who is also our photographer at lots of times. Also, my boyfriends´ mother :) She gave me these photos of her work because I really wanted to share her little projects with you guys.

I am not sure about this fabric. We went to buy fabric fur curtains together (I bought one too) but I'm not sure if she used that fabric or another one. Well, it doesn´t matter, really. I had plans to make a similar curtain for our bedroom, but.. I didn´t. Yet :) I will.. Once. Mine will be with little roses in deep red colour.

The process:
She cut out the fabric to to fit the window frame and hemmed the edges. Then she made small little crochet flowers and lastly sewed them on the fabric. Stems were made in the same way. It looks amazing, right? So simple, elegant and cute for a cottage look.

Guest Bedroom Curtain
This guest bedroom was once my boyfriends´ room. As we moved to out little apartment, we took his furniture and everything with us. So they were left with an empty room and a lot of makeover ideas :) This curtain fits with the look of the room, the furniture was home made out of pallet's. It is an all white wooden cozy little bedroom.

Guest Bedroom Bench
Here is an another part of the room. Cute, right? That two paintings on the right (you can barely see them) are mine :)

Kitchen Island Curtain
This is a small /half/ wall that divides a part of their kitchen and family room. They have an open space layout. This area looks awesome, because it is made out of bricks and white wall. They have a  small brown window frame (in the picture), it looks kind of rustic. Also, above the window there is a red house number address plague. And an outdoor rustic watch. Awesome :)

I hope you like this little project!

With love,
