Sofa Table

Here is a project that I did a few weeks back, and just never took the time to get it posted. I found this sofa table at a yard sale for $15. In it's original state, it was honey colored, and very well taken care of.
Of course, me being who I am, I couldn't just leave it in it's original state:o)
 Painting this table was a 3-step process. I spray painted a base coat of Krylon's Peekaboo Blue. I didn't worry about full coverage b/c I knew that I would be distressing it. I had just a smidge of the chalk paint left over, so I dry brushed a thin coat on top of the Peekaboo Blue.
Once that was dry, I sanded it to death. It was still a little too blue, so I dirtied it up with some Valspar antiquing glaze.
I found these glass knobs at Lowes. They were a necessity since every piece of furniture needs a little bling:o) 

It fits perfectly in our living room....It was meant to be...sigh:o)

Clouds, rain, coldness ... long sleeves, pants ... Dear Summer, can you please come back?!
Today i choose light rose and fluorescent orange flowers, this carrot-ish nail polish, and powder blazer to cheer up myself. Casual outfit for a downtown walk with my sister.
Did i tell you how much i love hydrangea? :)

Četvrtak, dan kada idete sa mlađom sestrom u grad... :)
Biram cveće, rimljanke sa nitnama , boje koje dozivaju sunce... i ne dozvoljavam da mi oblaci i  kiša pokvare raspolož daaaam!
p.s. deka je imao veliku želju da okačim na blog i njegovo delo iz bašte, moje inicijale ispisane kajsijama... ispunjeno! :)

A Dress for S.R.

 Yesterday I got the sewing bug again:o) I have been on a sewing hiatus after my encounter with the bridesmaid dresses that I worked on. It was actually nice to take a break...but now I am back.
I have had a beautiful stash of fabric that I have been putting off using for far too long now. I came across 
dress yesterday, and new I had to make a similar one. It is so sweet:o)
So here is my version of the "Summer Dress".
 My mother gave me some baby ric rac and I had to find a way to incorporate it on the dress. It adds just a little bit more to the ruffle don't you think? The lace that runs down the center front is some vintage lace I had in my stash...also given to me by my mother:o)
I am so happy with the results! 
I love visiting Girl.Inspired. She always has the most beautiful outfits for her girls...she is definitely "inspired" and very inspiring!
I am hoping to get some matching "4th of July" outfits made for the kids today during nap time...we'll see how that goes:o)

In one of my previous posts i showed you a sneak peek of this gorgeous blouse/tunic/dress, that i got from our young and talented designer Lada Dragovic! When i saw it, i immediately imagined to wear it with big floppy hat, in some garden during the summer,  that's the reason for not showing you earlier . This weekend i visited vineyards from my uncle, and made a few photos, of course! :)
U jednom od prethodnih postova sam vam pokazala detalje ove divne tunike/haljine koju sam dobila na poklon od naše mlade i talentovane dizajnerke Lade Dragović,  a sada imate priliku da vidite i kako ona izgleda u celosti! :) Na moru kao haljina, u gradu kao tunika, savršena za leto!
p.s. iako se ne vidi, ispod nje je šorc ...  ;)

Super Hero Birthday Party Inspiration

As you all may have noticed, I have been M.I.A. here lately. This summer has been jam packed full of things. Playgroups, swim lessons, family gatherings, and cutting hair have been filling my days. The laundry room still isn't complete. I haven't had time to finish it. Next week should be a little slower, so maybe I will get around to it then:o)
I thought I would share with you all some Super Hero Party inspiration that I have come across here recently. E has begged for a Spiderman/Batman/Superman birthday party....a.k.a. Super Hero Party.
I have been scouring blogland for inspiration, and here are some of my faves.
For those of you who are new to this blog, I always start planning the kids' parties 3 months in advance....I LOVE PARTIES!!

Aren't these some great ideas? To check out more from these fabulous parties, click on the links below:

Hello girlies, how are you? Are you enjoying in summer? I have great news to share, last week i passed my last exam, and im on a good way to get my master's degree soon! :) That's the main reason for not posting anything these days. But finally, here is  new outfit post, combination for coffee break with my lovely friend Ceca on a cloudy afternoon. I chosen to wear stripes with white blazer, and electric blue sandals that matches with new clutch from Tasnarija . Do you like it?
Stižem i donosim opravdanje! ;) Prošle nedelje sam položila i poslednji ispit na masteru, i mogu vam samo reći da je divan osećaj! :) Znam da najviše volite outfit postove, i ponekad je stvarno neizvodljivo slikati se, ali ću se potruditi da ih bude što više u toku leta!
Evo jedne kombinacije sa mojim omiljenim belim blejzerom, prugicama, i Tašnarija torbicom! Veliko hvala Ceci koja me je juče fotografisala, nakon našeg kafenisanja!♥

Nadam se da će vam se dopasti! :)
p.s. hvala svim devojkama koje su rekle da su im moji postovi nedostajali!:*
