Finger less gloves in colors of autumn

The mornings get slowly colder and colder, the mist covers fields and the air smells to the fallen list- the autumn is here. I don't have a modern car with all possible accessories and I don't like to feel the cold driving wheel in my hands. The finger less gloves are great solution- you still have a good contact with your wheel, but in the same time warm hands. They are more convenient for driver as conventional gloves. These are decorated with knitted plait with beads. They are a fusion between the gloves and a bracelet. Available in my Etsy shop

Packaging idea for a present for a man

Just typed packing for presents on Pinterst, you will get hundreds of images, but they mainly are for woman- ribbons, flowers, pink, but how to make interesting present for men. The idea came from the present, the form should fit to the content, and the content was a piece of ham and a bottle of ham sauce. So the packing is related to the cooking- the garlic can be used to make a garlic butter.

Autumn/Winter 2014-15 offers a definite  distinction between the colors for Winter versus Fall where we see a rich tradition of autumnal hues. Colors of red and brown casted oranges, purples and neutrals abound offering a warm Autumn color story.
Sangria, a pretty berry shade, is a perfect base color to pair it with Cognac brown  or Aluminum
Aurora Red, an orange red, is a classic choice for fall.
Mauve Mist, a soft purple shade, can look almost neutral if you pair it with the right colors, but in combination with Sangria or Radiant Orchid it’s a super feminine shade.
Radiant Orchid, the Pantone Color of the Year, may be a bold choice in large doses, but it’s surprising versatile as an accent color. Pair it with the blue and gray shades of the palette for a cheerful, energetic look.
Cypress, a classic autumn green, will definitely make you think of fall when you pair it with Aurora Red.
Bright Cobalt is a color but together with Misted Yellow and Aurora Red, you’ll have a charming Provencal palette.
Royal Blue, a basic color at any time, pair it with bright white for a timeless look.
Aluminum, a warm gray, is a great choice and fits always.
Cognac, this season’s brown, is a warm shade that mixes beautifully with all the other  shades in the palette.
Misted Yellow, a soft golden shade and it is a classic.

Tulle skirt tutorial

VERY simple tulle skirt tutorial, would be cute for a slip under a too short skirt as well.


Alongside we all are  using email, it is still nice to send a postcard. There is a great pleasure in writing a postcard, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. And great pleasure in receiving real postcard, too.
