These paintings from artist Hana Púchová appeal to me so much! This style of painting is very close to me. In this collection she paints her friends´ interiors (living rooms?) and it feels so homey and intimate. This is exactly what I love in art.

I just read that Hana Zárubová (I´ve written about her earlier) has won Grand Czech Design 2012 price for her colection Panto.no. I LOVE it!!! I loved her designs earlier, but these looks appeal to me even more. I love those drapey dresses and high necklines. The whole collection can be seen here: lookbook. If I were a millionaire, I would buy one of her dresses. Now I´m thinking about trying to make something similar myself. Hmm... I still have some light cream colored knit. But I love the black dresses the best.

I love the mobile liza jane made for her baby. At first I though: I would sooo love to make something similar, too. I had the idea to buy an old store bought mobile and replace the animals (whatever it comes with) with handmade animals/figures. And so I did. I bought a second hand mobile (we call it "carousel to hang above the crib" here, it fastens to the crib, so that I don´t need to hang it from the ceiling, which is quite problematic here) and started to think about what to make. I was thinking about some gnomes initially, but then I remembered I really like wild animals like foxes, deers... So I started to make strange forest animals. At first there was a hedgehog. In fact, it´s hedgehog´s ghost (some of you may recognize this from one of my paintings :). Then there was a squirrel - yellow, because I didn´t have the right color of felt for it. The third one is a wolf. I´m also planning to make a fox and deer, as I mentioned above.
The only problem is I kind of started to like the actual animals on the mobile I bought :). And I don´t want to cut them off and replace them. Any idea what to do with these new handmade ones...?
Did you see the movie Julie and Julia? I saw it recently and I loved it! Ever since, I enjoy cooking and baking a lot. Well, in fact, I´m slowing down with the baking, because most times I just eat everything I bake... and let´s just say it´s not the best for my health and figure :).

Today I tried to do some sewing while Andulína was around, but it was almost impossible. She manages to play on her own only for a very short time, and then keeps just standing by my leg, yelling at me to pick her up :). Also I used to cut my fabric on the floor (there´s nowhere else to do it, actually), and that´s not possible with her, of course. Anyway, there are some very easy projects I´d like to finish soon - some clothes for Marie, so I´ll try to do that as soon as possible.
