What To Do On A Rainy National Holiday

It's national holiday in Slovenia. The weather has been horrible all day. Sooo, what to do? 


Make clothes for Barbies & Kens, of course :)  
What else?

Victorious Victoria

I first heard about her a few days ago. I was immediately touched by her story. She's about my age, and the little girl she'd lost was born just a month before my daughter. I felt instant connection.

I very much admire her courage and perseverance.

Victoria Milligan, you're my hero.

Brother Bear

My brother is an incredibly talented nature photographer. As we live in the area populated by brown bear I simply have to share some of his latest masterpieces:







And no, I've never come across one myself,

Up!

Ever watched the film "Up"? You may have never heard of it if you don't have children of a certain age (like teenagers at this point) ... Anyway, we did watch it many times, my boy is absolutely nuts about any animated film, to be honest, and "Up" has always been one of my favourites as well. 

It's basically a wonderful love story, presenting all the right values to its viewers. And the image of a house being lifted up in the air by a bunch of colourful balloons, well, let's just say that's exactly my cup of tea.

Imagine my delight then when I spotted this absolutely incredibly breath-takingly gorgeous piece of jewellery on Etsy! I know, I know, it's meant for little girls, but hey, who says I'm not one at heart? :)
