Master Bedroom During Christmas Holidays

Hello Everybody! :-)

I've just finished with decorating in our master bedroom. I didn't overdo it this year, I just added some bits and pieces here and there :-) 

These Santas are hanging from the nobs on our closet. They are very old. Mum bought them when I was about 2 years old.

This is my favorite dress ever from my childhood. I was in a school play, when I was at the elementary school, and I got the part of a New Year. My parents bought me this dress and a diadem. That was a wonderful experience. Throughout my whole childhood, I was a regular tomboy, but on this day I was a lady with magical powers. I pretended it was real and that I could make some magic happen.:-)

I hanged it on the side of the closet, and it is part of the Christmas decor. It keeps bringing the good memories from my childhood.

I placed our white Christmas Tree next to my Love's side of the bed. I put a mirror next to it, too, because it looks great at night. I just added some purple lights on  it ( and the lights actually look red for some reason). Probably because of the white color of the Tree.

 These are our cozy pillows. (Yes, they are pink, I admit officially, I like pink color, now).

I put a white and gold butterfly on my pillow. I love butterflies. Especially in the winter when there's no any.

And a white and blue one is on my Love's side. He likes it a lot. :-)

This is the diadem I mentioned. I placed it on our headboard.  Isn't it lovely? :-)

Next to my side of the bed, there is this green bottle with some Christmas lights in it. I painted this wicker bottle holder this summer.

And this basket, too. I showed it to you, and I couldn't decide what I'm gonna be using it for. Well, I decided to put some of my favorite magazines inside.

Uh, I have to show you this. You see the magazine GRAZIA? With the girl in white? This number is from February 2011. I love this jacket and I had to take a picture.

Look at this golden, chain like ornament around the hood and on the sleeves.  This is some awesome jacket.

I found this, too. I would buy this one only if it's fake fur. Animals should keep their skin.

Enough with winter clothing! :-)
This is the rest of ornaments. I pretty much 'localized' them! :-)

Another, very old Christmas ornament.

Cherubs are still in their old position, nothing changed. :-)

Our little wreath.

And some good old ornaments in a bowl and on a cake stand. 

 Hugs, hugs, hugs!!! :-)

Little Decorations in Our Kitchen

I can't believe how busy I am. I guess everybody is busy these days. While I was cleaning yesterday, I decided to decorate just a little part of our kitchen. Mum's cooking these days a lot. Well, mostly baking. That's not good. No, sir. She always bakes as if she has to feed the army, and everything tastes so good. Before the snow, mum and dad often went to mushroom picking. I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but when you add the right spices... Yummy! I am the only vegetarian in the family (including all my relatives and friends). I also experiment with food a lot, and miracles do happen in the kitchen. Or catastrophes. :-) Depending on how concentrated I am. My mum is a chef and I learned from her that cooking is a form of art. I just remembered Richard Gere in "Autumn in New York".  When he says: ''Food is the only beautiful thing that truly nourishes''. True. Well, for the right kind of food. I would add love to this quote. :-)
Yeah... Definitely! Love and food, my friends. :-)

Some tea cookies, tea, and some decorations...


Nothing is better than a hot drink on a cold winter day.

Just some gold, sparkly decorations. And red color.

Mum bought this cloth in 1986, a year before I was born. I love this doggie (not to mention the Christmas theme).

My love bought me this cute bear candle holder somewhere around last Christmas. A bear in a booth, covered with snow... It makes me think of my love when I'm in the kitchen. Maybe I should move it... Burned food is not nourishing. That reminded me, I am out of this little candles. I guess I'll have to add that to the list.

This is a last year present from our friends.  A snowglobe in a sack, with Santa on the side. I love it! :-)

Just two decorations hanging from the nobs on the kitchen cabinet. I painted this five months ago. It was a quick project. It was dark brown before.  White suits it well, I think.

Surprise of a Day

This is what I saw when I got up this morning.

This Year's First Snow

I was really surprised. Somebody told me that snow might fall on Monday, but I didn't take that seriously. I was in Kragujevac for a couple of days, and this morning I had to go to my parent's house. I got up, and thought that it was raining heavily, but no, it was snowing! I screamed and woke up my love who was pretty much in a deep sleep. I LOOOVE snow. This is officially the beginning of the Christmas season for me. I really don't like when New Year and Christmas come and go without a drop of snow. And it happened a couple of  times in previous years. You see in the picture that it really wasn't much of a snow, and it melted fast on the concrete. However, when I got into a bus and rode out of the city, everything was covered in a thin white coat. It was so lovely! :-)

If you want to know how heavily it can snow here, this is a photo which pretty much speaks for itself.

The Last Year's Snow in My Front Yard

And this picture was taken twelve days after it fell. On the first day it was about two feet, seven inches tall (about 80 cm). My family and I were shoveling like crazy. We were also fooling around in snow ( we made snow angels, threw ourselves into snow, well, mostly my love and I, my parents thought we got crazy ) It was great, but I got sick afterwards. I hope for a great snow this year, too. I just love when everything is covered in white, when everything looks so clean and fresh. It's like you are rolled into a giant marshmallow.
