Pastel in Fashion/ В моде Пастель

Pale yellow, mintpale pink, sky blue ... Pastel attracts people by its nobility, purity, vividness and   freshness of color... 
The subtlety and elegance of pastels in combination with the unusual sonority of colors and textures create a rich world that  mesmerizes us. Lace, silk, chiffon, feathers will help create a sense of lightness and short skirts, open shoulders, translucent materials will help to avoid too naive way.
I can say that pastel really 
mesmerizes me! I love PASTEL!   



Бледно-желтый, мятный, нежно-розовый, небесно-голубой... Пастель  влечет к себе благородством, чистотой, живостью и свежестью цвета...

Тонкость и изящество пастели в сочетании с необычной звучностью красок и богатством фактуры создают мир, который завораживает. Кружево, шелк, шифон, перья помогут создать ощущение воздушности, а короткие юбки, открытые плечи, полупрозрачные материалы помогут избежать слишком наивного образа.
Лично меня пастель ну просто завораживает! Люблю ПАСТЕЛЬ!

Some of my new pieces of clothes for spring/ Немножко моих весенних обновочек))))

 Spring is just around the corner, in fact, it has come and flourish, and "flavor", and shines, and warms, and inspires us! :)))
It is not warm enough, sometimes it is still cold, but I decided to start preparations for the coming "heat")))
In general, trendy color of this season - pastel colors - are my favorite colors)))))), pale pink, "a delicate lemon"))) So, I have bought a pale pink jacket and lemon trousers))), I was even lucky to find two things in the same store which was Zara.

Весна уже совсем не за горами, более того, она наступила, и цветет, и "ароматит", и греет, и светит, и вдохновляет! :)))
Еще не совсем тепло, временами прохладно, но я решила себя начать готовить к настоящему теплу)))
Вообще модные в этом сезоне цвета - пастельки, это как мои любимые цвета)))))) нежно-розовый, "нежный лимончик"))) Поэтому с удовольствием приобрела нежно-розовый пиджачок и лимонные брючки))) даже повезло, все в одном магазине оказалось: Zara.





and here are my favorite SYL bracelets))))))

а вот и мои любименькие браслетики SYL)))))



My sweetie gave me this perfume as a present for the last Christmas ))) it has so pleasant aroma, and aroma which is right for Spring))) 

Любимый подарил мне парфюм на Рождество))) а у него такой приятный, как раз весенний аромат)))


 Comfortable shoes has not been canceled yet)))) I don't allow myself to wear high heels that they would rub my feet or make them tired, especially when I go just to make some shopping or when i am on a long walk)))
 Удобную обувь еще никто не отменял)))) Не позволяю себе стирать ножки каблуками, особенно когда иду просто в магазин или на долгую прогулку)))



And finally, my favorite  comfortable every day jacket))))

Market in Leibstadt, 24th March)))

 Now it is the time to share my latest events with you ))) And the main important event is the market on the 24th of March, where i presented and successfully sold a lot of my goods)))
The market was in Leibstadt, a small Swiss village ( the next big market will be in May in Baden). Despite being a very small market it was a really a good market. The day was really nice: the sun was shining, the first flowers were blossoming, we were surrounded by nice small Swiss houses, the windows of which were decorated by Easter rabbits, eggs, chickens and flowers, beautiful green landscapes))) For one second it seemed to me that the Summer has come)))) I even didn't need to wear a jacket)))

So, we were surrounded by such landscapes:

Настало время поделиться с вами событиями последней недели)))) А самое главное из них - рыночек 24 марта, где я представила и успешно продала многие из моих товаров)))
Рыночек был очень маленький, в маленькой швейцарской деревне Leibstadt ( крупный будет в мае в Бадене), но вокруг были красивенные домики, украшенные пасхальным декором, церковь, первые цветущие цветы, прекрасный зеленый пейзаж и, что самое главное, погода была просто шикарная, на секунду мне даже показалось, что уже наступило лето))) Мне даже не пришлось одевать куртку)))

Итак, вот такие пейзажи окружали нас)))


The market was small: around 20 stands, but it looked very nice and cosy )))) Do you see the car on the left? There is a stand aside. There was a young man who sold fresh delicious  apples, Granny Smith and Jataka ( Japanese apples)))) He also sold fresh fruit juice and cherry-mocca and cherry liqueurs...)))

 Рынок был небольшой, около 20 стендов...зато как мило и уютно)))) Видите ту машину слева сбоку? Там еще рядом стенд. Вот там молодой человек продавал свежие вкусные яблоки, Гремми Смит и японские яблоки Ятака))) у него еще вкусный был свежевыжатый сок и ликеры вишня-мокко, вишня и что-то еще...))


The windows were wonderfully decorated)))) And if see at the windows we will notice that children have decorated them with Easter stickers))))

 Декор конечно чудесный у них на окнах))) А дети там еще видно понаклеивали стикеры пасхальные на окна)))


The first blossoming trees and the view of the Church...

Первые цветения и вид на Церковь...


Here is once more a view on this nice house with beautifully decorated windows)))
You cannot see it on the photo but in front of the house there was a bed of flowers, and the owner of the house planted flowers in front of us)))) pansies and primroses)))

Вот еще один вид на тот дом с красивыми подоконниками)))
На фото не видно, но там еще была клумба перед домом, и хозяйка дома прям при нас цветы сажала потом днем)))) анютины глазки и примулы, так классно)))


This is the stand of my husband's mother. Her hobby is tea, tea pots and cups)))
Это стенд мамы моего мужа. Ее хобби- чай, чайнички и чашки)))



She prepared so nice packages with tea! And this tea is very tasty!!! She doesn't make tea herself yet, but she decorated everything herself ))))

У нее вот такие чудесные пакетики с чаем! а чай вообще очень вкусный!!! Чай она сама пока не делает...но вот все упаковывает и украшает сама)))


Beautiful cups and teaboxes)))) The cup with lavender pattern is my favorite))) and it was sold immediately)))

Красивые кружечки и коробочки с чаем)))) та,что с лавандой, моя любимая))) ее сразу же купили))))



And here is my stand ))))))

 А вот это мой стендик)))))))



My felt Matryoshkas )))

Мои матрешечки из фетра)))


Here you see my quilled works closer ))) and also felt birds, rabbits and  wooden handmade Matryoshkas)))

 Мои работы из квиллинга поближе)))) Птички, кролики и матрешки)))


And here you can also notice my cards, and some fimo decorations)  & Matryoshkas from Russia))

 А тут видны уже мои открытки, немножко украшенйи из фимо) Матрешки из России))


Guess, who is it? Of course, it is me and my works))))
Even if it sounds a bit strange, sometimes i feel pity that my works are sold, because very work is made with love and high attention to it))) But at the same time, my heart is happy and smiles when my works are sold and in this way i can bring some happy moments into other peoples' lifes)))) Smiles, admired looks and "Thanks" of my customers - is the main prize for me)))))

 Угадайте, кто это? Ну конечно же я и мои работы))))
Как не смешно звучит, но мне иногда даже жалко продавать мои работы, каждая сделана с любовью и огромным вниманием))) Но в то же время, радуется сердце, когда работы продаются, а тем самым я могу привнести радость в жизнь других людей)))) Улыбки, восхищенные взгляды и "спасибо" покупателей -  это главная награда для меня))))


Some more Spring photos ))))
Вот еще немножко весны)))


 Primroses were nicely planted in this log))))

Очень интересно в этом бревне были посажены примулы))))


 Once more a view on the window of the house located nearby)))
Еще раз любимое окошко рядом стоящего дома)))


On our way back home)))
Дорога домой)))



And here are our first Spring flowers))))

 А вот и наши первеы цветы))))


Как вам мой рыночек???

А как вы встречаете весну???


 With love,
 EM

С любовью,

Preparation for Easter: Table and Easter Tree Decoration

Ideas how to decorate an Easter table

 Everyone has preferences how and with what he/she can decorate an Easter table, from preferred flowers to the amount of decorations and the choice of the dominant figures: bunnies, chickens, sheeps, eggs, flowers, etc...i can offer you some ideas how you can decorate your table, and then you can decided whether you like my ideas, or not, and if yes, then i will be happy that my ideas will be as inspiration for you.

In my opinion, this day is associated with something soft, spring, when nature awakens, symbolizing the beginning of a new life. That is, it could be nice if you choose gentle natural shades for the festive decoration: green, and any other "green" shade, lemon, terracotta, soft pink, lavender, purple, white, the color of the sky and other shades of colors.
1. Festive table decoration in lilaс shades (Tischdekoration für Ostern in Lila), which is so popular in Germany and Switzerland, well, i see too often the presence of lilac and lavender colors in the decoration. It is enough to take two major contrasting colors like: lilac and white. Also, you can put on the table a couple of pots with spring flowers such as soft white or pink tulips, than in this case you can also get a little fresh greenery. It is not necessary to buy a classic lilac tablecloth and cover with it the whole table, you can just buy a narrow skater, which you can put in the center along the table. Thus, you have white plates, lilac tablecloth  and white and lilac decorations. It is also important to note here that these colors certainly match the white table, or any light-colored wood table. But they will not match any dark shades of a wooded table ... It will be also very nice if you put a beautifully decorated napkin on the each plate: for decoration of a napkin you can use a flower (if there is a top of tulips on the table, then you can also use a tulip for the decoration of the napkin), it can be a lilac Easter Bunny (if the napkin is white, use a lilac bunnies, if it is lilac, use white bunnies: never forget about contrast!!!). As for decor: it looks nice  if you buy the same figures for decorations, for example, lilac or white or lilac-white bunnies, and do not mix everything together: rabbits with chickens and with something else...So, this is the main ideas int his paragraph



I have chosen lilac...well, you can choose any other color, for example, you can take a contrast of white and light rose, or white and blue, or lights beige+ very light tender rose, yellow and blue colors, as you can see on the following picture: 



2. Another idea for the festive decoration is for those who like nature, natural colors and everything in the countryside...white, beige, brown, yellow, red and green colors))) Among subjects for decoration there can be chickens, sheeps, rabbits or eggs. it is very important, if you cover the table with a patterned tablecloths(  for the pattern there can be eggs, chickens, rabbits, etc.), the the napkins should be in the same style with the same pattern. Then everything will look nice and complete. Plates can be white or their edges can be beige or brown. Again, it is important that the figures with which you decorate the table would be the same as the pattern on the napkins and the tablecloths. 



3. The third idea ( suitable for those people who has a balcony or garden and likes to make a small basket lunch every morning...here you will sit at the wooden table which you don't even need to cover with the tablecloths) is to decorate the table with dishes in form of Easter animals. For example, the bowl can be in the form of a rabbit or a chicken or with the similar pattern.


4. Many people like modern style in everything: a bit cold, restrained style + natural light colors or very bright colors + some modern metal things.
Then you can just choose a tablecloths of some color you really like, for example, a light green color...brown will match it....then you take minimum of decorations, you can just decorate the middle of the table with some decorative eggs. White dishes will match all these colors and also metal dishes and decorative things. 

 Our chose was the following colors: green+ brown + white +metal silver...you can take, for example, white +brown +metal without green...or violet +white +metal...or white+metal+yellow-orange...minimum of decorations, everything restrained, and in stead of some decorative eggs there are bouquets of flowers on the table...


5. Finally, we can also offer you a nice idea for festive decoration which will be very suitable if you celebrate this day not just in the circus of your family, but also if your friends join you. You can choose a light beige or white tablecloths... white plates...and the you can create a real spring on the table blossoming with flowers...Don't forget about contrast and that too much different colors are not good. For example, choose just white and rose...the the tablecloths will be white, plates will also be white, and flowers will be rose and white rose...you can place ,let's say, 2-3 bouquets of flowers in the middle of the table and scatter some ( not a lot!) flowers everywhere on he table....you can also out some of the on the napkins...You can also create more romantic and elegant atmosphere and light up white candles...and also soem candles in crystal candlesticks...

We have chosen rose +white colors...you can take white+ yellow, or white+ blue...etc...

Well, i think that is all))) I hope my ideas were interesting and useful))) I wish you a lot of inspiration!!!!

How can i decorate an Easter tree?

For the Easter tree you can use a tree which you can buy in the shop, or you can buy some willow sticks and decorate them.
You can decorate your Easter tree in very different ways. It is as important and creative as to decorate a Christmas tree. You can buy decorations in a shop or just make them yourself. For example,felt rabbits. Int he next post i will show you how i made Eater let rabbits)))
What is important is to choose exactly the same colors as you used for table decoration. Everything should match each other and be in the same style. 
And here are some beautiful ideas for your inspiration: 






  Well, i wish you thousands of creative ideas and nice spring days!!! You still have time to prepare for Easter!)))) 
Hugs, 
Ekaterina Marmy

My choice: Autumn look - cool but chic
