Matchboxes

Hello dear ones!

Spring is almost here since the sun is getting stronger. My daughter just turned 23 yesterday... time flies without mercy... but its the most beautiful time for which I thank everyday! 
I made some small needle boxes from matchboxes, pastel colours, very springlike with lots of lace. Also finished a rabbit, covered in lace. :) 
Then I found some tiny glass beads in tiny glass bottles and I grabbed quite alot. Just look at all the wonderful colours! 

Today we have the academy awards so I hope everyone has fun!
Thank you all for the sweet comments that you all leave!

Witam Was moi mili!

Icecream pincushion

Hello dear ones! 

I was inspired by pincushions made by Viola. I made it with a crystal cut glass. Of course, I used white ace, since I love it. It looks a bit like an icecream scoop. :) 
I'm also working on a clown pincushion for my daughter who asked me for one. 

From pearls strung on wire I made a lace like thingie that's going to adorn a glass jar Im going to use for holding cotton balls. I love decorating jars with lace, pearls and all of mine look like this. 

My sweet birdie lately fell in love with everything hoop-like and mostly rings. Playing with them she is nice and quiet for hours and patiently waits for me to hand them over. When she starts screeching I tell her she wont get them and she hides her head under her wing and says "Hello Lola Im good." I cant help grabbing her and hugging her silly, then she gets her rings. :) 

Well dears, thank you for all your sweet words you leave on here and that you make every day happy! I wish you all a wonderful time!

Witajcie kochani!
Zainspirowana Violinowymi igielnikami zrobilam jeden na kieliszeczku krysztalowym.Oczywiscie w bialych koronkach  moich ukochanych.Wyglada troszeczke jak lody w pucharku :)

Lace bottle

Hello dears Ones!

As promised, the person who wins my giveaway will receive an extra gift, made especially for her in style and colour chosen. 
So this is what I created for Carol, who won! 
She loves pink so I tried to make sure the pink tones weren't lacking. Do you think she'll like it? I'm waiting for her opinion! :)

I also want to share a recipe I made for cookies. They melt in your mouth and are delicious and very delicate. I got the recipe from a friend that highly recommended  them and I finally tried and can say that hey are delicious! 

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving sweet comments! 
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

RECIPE: 

1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
1/2 cup (60 grams) cornstarch (corn flour)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (30 grams) confectioners sugar (powdered or icing)
1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Topping:
1/2 cup (60 grams) confectioners sugar (powdered or icing)
In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch and salt. 
In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. Cover and refrigerate the batter for an hour or two, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
When batter is firm, form into 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 10 - 14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies just start to brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 3-5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack that is placed over a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Put the confectioners sugar in a fine strainer or sieve and sprinkle the tops of the cookies with the sugar.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Witajcie mili moi!

Little bebe shoe

Hello dear ones!

So many blogs have got into the Valentine groove, so many hearts and all so sweet! 
So I too, decided to do something and came up with a heart collage and smaller hearts that I attached to clothespins. 
I got to creating a little baby shoe that is spring themed. I adorned it with pearls, crystals and roses, not to mention lace. :) 
This was created for a lady that loves pearls. Sonia my dear, do you know anyone like that? :) 
I'm just not sure what to put inside it to enhance that spring-y feel! 
So that and my first egg of the season! This is vintage lace that I blinged up with tiny pearls. :) 
It's snowing in Toronto and the temperatures dropped drastically so... winter is back?
I hope you all have the most wonderful week!

Witajcie mili moi
Na wzystkich blogach tak walentynkowo tak serduszkowo ,slicznie
Wiec  i ja zrbilam serduszko zawieszke i malenkie serduszka na zapinkach do prania.
