Black and White Feathers - silk scarf

This is my second hand - painted silk scarf, done in monochrome and inspired by Art - Nouveau style and feathers. I really hope you'll like it! I'm thinking of creating a series of this type of hand painted scarves, what do you think?

I didn't even realize how fun it would be to paint... I am an always have been a 'milion-color' artist, if you know what I mean ;) but lately I am drawn to this type of art.

Here's my Etsy Black and White treasury collection with items connected by one topic: feathers! If you follow the link you'll get the clickable version and you'll be able to reach each one of this great arts

All that Jazz - Etsy Treasury!

All that Jazz! Do you know this phrase? 
Lovely roaring 20's, got to love them! 

So much diversity, so much to tell!

This gorgeous piece of art by is very inspiring. Looking at this beautiful picture all I can hear in my head are songs from 'Chicago' musical, especially 'All that Jazz' :D 
This is a signed and limited edition of prints, so get it while it's still out there!

VallondesTresors - hairsticks and much more!

How do you feel about hairsticks? I love it, can't wait for my hair to be long enough for me to be able to use hairsticks again! Now, there's so many wonderful items on the web you can choose from, I did find this one especially beautiful:

This gorgeous hairstck is pearl white and decorated with jade. It is beautifully shaped, so delicate and famine. I'm absolutely in love whit this Ketylos. I think it will make a beautiful gift for a special, romantic girl.

This is my favorite, but you might wanna see more of those hairstick. You can find them at Etsy shop, along with other original items: cussion covers, beaded lace necklaces and aprons.

Stunning! I love turquoise with brown, it's so elegant. This pillow case is 40 x 40 cm, cotton decorated with lace. Flowers and birds - gorgeous combination!

Lady with a Book

I love Jane Austen! All books, most films and the famouls BBC series (I could watch it all the time). I would love to make a silk scarf with Jane Austen theme, so firstly I'm looking for inspirations. Here's some fabolous regency related items, all from Etsy... and of course the treasury 'Lady with a Book'

This fabolous work of art is literally made from a book! How cool is that? This is really a "triple layer of twirling fluttering loveliness" A great gift for a Jane Austen enthusiast, indeed!

So delicate and romantic picture! It really has this wonderful quality of regency time art - drawn with ink and then painted with watercolors. Digital print on high quality heavy paper.

 Lovely work of art in watercolor technique. Such a nice idea - pebbles in heart shapes. This is a real treat as you can buy the original watercolor! 


 All regency and Jane Austen items! 

 And now a scarf.... still looking for an idea!

Dreamming of May

Magnolia tree in our garden just bloomed... for the third time this year! It has very few flowers, but they're there! Great, dark pink, gorgeous flowers! In this part of the garden you may almost feel a breath of May... 

It inspired me to create a silk scarf with magnolia flowers, but first, the beautiful items in treasury...

 Beautiful photographed item, such lovely delicate colors. This lovely flower desings were collaged onto upcycled cardboard or handmade paper. Free shipping too - that's a nice touch!

 Beautiful painting (acrylic) on canvas, lovely and romantic composition, fantastic colors... I really love this original style, the women and the bird. It will look wonderful as a wall art at someone home!

 I love cherry blossoms! Do you remember this wonderful, spring fragrant? Can't wait, even now when the weather is great, can't wait for May and this gorgeous pink flowers!

Silk scarf Autumn Leaves... and a treasury!

Nowadays, I can feel autumn in the night air... the sun is getting colder and smaller on the sky. I just want to cuddle up at home with my laptop and good green tea :)
In our family garden, there's a beautiful maple tree, that has yellow leaves during the summer, and then it turns golden. It inspired me to create new silk scarf called Autumn Leaves in gold and brown colors.

The silk scarf 'Autumn Leaves' is quite big (90x90 cm) and it's ready to be sent!

I love this color set, so I decided to create a treasury inspired by gold - brown (and just a hint of violet) composition. Enjoy!

Magnificent photography! I just cant believe how beautiful it is! I love this strong gold light... can you see that this color is unique? Would love to visit that place. ARTIST: Scott Board

So absolutely cool! This shoes must be so cosy (hand felted). As the maker says:extremely wear proof and warm. Stunning and so delicate: amazing gold, brown and a bit of green colors. Important:
natural latex or rubber soles :) fantastic!

I really like this bracelet! It's so rare now to find a jewelery from wood - I think it's a wonderful material. I like the idea of oak and walnut (such strong trees, very meaningful) As the marker says 'the wood beads used on them are made of leftover woods' - very important!

And finally, here's the Warm Autumn Glow treasury - I love all the items, I adore the colors! Happy sales, everybody!

White and navy blue

My absolute favorite color set for clothes... navy blue and a bit of white. Of course there's always a risk of getting a "Navy look" something like a sailor costiume... so you have to be careful ;) here's some Etsy finds matching my Lord of The Rings silk scarf 'White Tree of Gondor' - hope you'll like it!

And here's my  blue - white collection of beautiful Etsy items! 
All of the items are really stunning, but I want to show you some of them closer!

This one is so beautiful! Very stylish dress, very ladylike, great colors. Could you believe it's only 20USD? Please know that this is a vintage item with imperfections (small, you can barely see it, I say)

Beautiful shoes, so blue and shiny! I love this type, yup, those heels look high, but still they look comfortable! This shoes are hand dyed, as the creator says: perfect "something blue" for wedding!

With this coat I fell instantly in love! It's so unique! yay. Made of 100% natural fibers including super soft wool, angora, cashmere, silk and cotton blends - that's a real treat.

Fast and Furious -Trendsetting Treasury Team experience

Yesterday, one of my scarves was chosen for promo item on Trendsetting Treasury Team in Fast and Furious thread. Such an amazing opportunity! I would love to share my experience with you all!

Here's the promoted item: Silk scarf JAPANESE GOLD 

Firstly I participated in previous threads named 'Fast and Furious'. 
This group game requires no more no less but to promote a given item. I faved them on Etsy, Tweeted, Pinned and anded a fav from my personal Facebook page. It's highly recommended to make a treasury with this item as well, but it's not obligatory.

After a week or so I was informed (convo) by a wonderful KimandMark from three1seven  that my silk scarf JAPANESE GOLD was randomly chosen for promotion on 18.08. 

I've received such a wonderful feedback! Lot's of views (going up to 100) hearts and lots of such wonderful treasuries, that I've decided to share some of them with you!

 ゴールド by Aubrey Wingo from WingoWorks 

Thank you all for support and help in promoting my silk scarf Japanese Gold! It was a wonderful opportunity for me, and I'm more than sure to take part in next Fast and Furious games!
I've shared most of the treasuries on my Pinterest Board - if you wish to re-pin it!

Black and White

Recently, I've painted black and white silk scarf with a feathers lineart in Art-Nouveau style. I'm more a rainbow-colors person myself, but this one was a real fun to paint! Hope you'll like it! I've found some more Etsy products in black and white and I fell in love with this simply, monochromatic color set!

This scarf was inspired by polish traditional art motifs, some tribal patterns... it took lots of work but I'm really pleased with it! It is shimmery and looks really exquisite because of the wonderful Habotai natural silk.

Just look at this dress! It's simply breathtaking! I am mesmerized! It's made of 100% mercerized Cotton thread. Fasionable, extermely feminile and classy. It's inspired by a 1950's shape but transformed into modern and unique fashion.

 Fantastic idea, also as a great gift! Photo print put into pendant tray, on a black necklace. I love dandelion patter and the nature feel. Lead-free and nickel-free - that's also important!

Recently I've found some really lovely items on Etsy... I want to share them with you! Be sure to click on them to see more pictures in the owners shops.

 Absolutely gorgeous coat! I love this delicate peach/orange color... and the fasion is simply outstanding! can you imagine how warm and cosy it must feel? It makes wonders with every siluette, I'm more than sure! It's made of wool, could it be better?

I love this pendant! Oh so blue, so beautiful, simply perfect with all this little orange drawings! It's made from polymer clay, and it's inspired by a mokume gane. I bet it looks gorgeous on every blue/gray eyed gal!

Astonishing! I'm in love with this design, with it's colors and patterns... and the fashion! It must be really comfortable. Very original look, hippie or bohemian, love them both! Made from cotton, so it must be soft :)

And finnaly - the treasury - hope you'll like it! It's a composition of peach orange & turquoise items, that I find lovely!

Still waiting for changes

Yes, they tell us that we have to make changes for ourselves. That should be true. So I did. And now I'm searching for reality's approval... huh, the others, world, reality... so much is not in our power, and we may struggle, and we may fight but still there's so little we can do. I see it now :( and I don't like it.

Anyway, that's pessimistic - probably there's to little sun right now and my brain just can't cope so the depression sets. Still, I'm trying. See those picture, it's my new silk scarf, for sale - obviously! Hope you'll like it! It god a huge feedback, but sadly, no buyers!

You can find it on
