Christmas Tree full of crochet

I saw it yesterday from my car, though cute white decoration, and drove forward. I didn’t even realize that they were CROCHET!! My friend Kamila read this in todays newspaper.
This is our Town Hall Christmas tree this year:

I think it was a great idea to decorate this tree with crochet this year.

I hope you got some great gifts from Santa today. I treat this news about Christmas tree as one of my gifts 🙂

Polka dot bracelets

Some time ago I bought a polka dot bag. I loved its pattern and even though it would not match anything I had at my wardrobe, I had to buy it 🙂 After all it always can be an interesting eye-catching addition to an ordinary outfit. As I got back home with my new bag, I decided to make a bracelet with this pattern. I can crochet it, so why not ?
I did some research to maybe get the pattern, but all I found was the bracelet with one bead dots, so had to design the pattern of my own.
Here is what came out from the bag to the bracelet 🙂

One is always to few for me, so I made another one in negative.

And then made matching one with glass pearls and shamballa bead.

I don’t recommand this combination, because shamballa bead scratched some pearl paint from the neighbour pearls while wearing 😦 Now I would use a Swarovski crystal instead of Shamballa or add not painted glass beads between them.

Anyway, I love to wear this set 🙂 firs with the bag and now without it, because I had to return it 😦 Unfortunately it turned out to be a really bad quality 😦

Neighbourhood

We live where the old meets new, the very beautiful place in Olsztyn Poland.
Last weekend we spent a couple of hours wandering around to see what has changed beside the leaves colours.

Since the new meets old here, this is a good place to start, so let’s go.

You can buy an old military detention if you want..

..and change it for something good, like this huge building

this one was taken here a years ago

and in front of tasteful metal “doors”

It is good that it is renovated, cause unfortunately others look like this

This is our neighbourhood too, but it will be for another walk 🙂
