LOVE & Tagged & LOVE



I have been tagged by Sarahtay of this lovely, newly discovered blog Simply Sporadic. Thanks lovely!

The rules:

Link back to the person who tagged you.
List six little things that make you happy.
Tag six bloggers and let them know they’re “it”.


Well, this tag shouldn't be too difficult, since I just LOVE so much ;)!

Note: The things in this list are in random order. So, number 1 is not the most important to me etc.

1. Creating little things.

I just can't get over how lovely it is to have your own, little shop.
It's not about selling tons of stuff or earning BIG money.
It's about creating the things you love, having that special feeling of really having something that's yours (the shop) and also offering your handmade goodies to others, of course.
I made some new things...and listed them on my shop!




2. The 'Blogging-World'.

I don't know if i can explain it properly, but it just makes me really happy.
All those blogs, all those beautiful things people show and write about, people sharing the important and ordinary, daily things about their lives....but the most important thing is the amazing KINDNESS, respect and true care people show for each other around here. It truly touches me and makes me really happy!
Thank you all for that so, so much!

It feels a little bit like this sometimes...



Or more like this?


(Cute birds By Ann Wood at Etsy)

3. Spending time with my mum.

Just being with my mum, while already living apart for more than 9 years now, is always 'Special Time' to me. This amazing bond we have with each other and the fact i can tell her everything means the world and more to me!
Also, it's so amazing we can share so many things with each other, because we are so alike in many different ways. My love for beautiful things, seeing beauty in lots of things, loving to create and decorate...i have this from her! I am so grateful to her for many things in my life, but this time for that special thing she gave me.
Mom, I love how we can share our love for the Beauty in the world!

Last weekend, I made some photographs of her stuff!
She really inspires me....that's just the truth, although i won't be surprised when she thinks i only say that to be sweet to her.








She recently bought this gorgeous skirt in Switserland!




4. W!

Not too many words here.
Because he's ALWAYS there.
And because he let's me see and makes me believe...



5. Collecting beautiful things!








Love these new fabrics...from a Thriftshop.



And my lace collection is getting bigger and bigger...



6. My latest 'obsession': ZAKKA!

I already heard about Zakka before and saw some things on Etsy and Dawanda that people called Zakka. A few days ago, I went on a big Internet search for Zakka stuff and I fell in love. Completely.





I found a lots of websites with a LOT of Zakka products, but since this Zakka things is Asian (mostly Japanese I believe) the websites are also in Asian languages! I searched my *** off, but I can't find a button on any of those websites to translate them into English! Google translator isn't really doing it's job well, either.

So, if any of you is, or can read Japanese or Korean, PLEASE HELP ME OUT, before I go completely nuts! I already emailed the people from two specific websites, but they don't mail me back...GRR!

This website is just heaven....in every single way...


(I am dying to buy this one! It says sold out in English on the website, but nothing else on the site is in English and i want to buuuuuuuyyyy things!!!)






Handmade Zakka items from Japanese blogs and websites...





In the meantime I DID find an online store in ENGLISH where you can purchase the dreamitems from 'and Spring...'.
Only....the store is located in Australia, so that means a lot of shipping costs.
However, no complaining, i finally found a way to at least purchase one of the beauties.
Oh, and they have some gorgeous wallpapers on the site to download!



The question is now: WHAT item shall I buy?

Luckily on both Etsy and Dawanda are great Zakka items for sale too!

For example at this and this Etsy shops.
And this and this Dawanda shops!

My mom bought some very pretty stamps in London...so i wanted to try them out too...

(While creating this post I purchased several things....bad me...and there's also a great stampset that will be mine very soon, co I can make lots of nice and personal cards to send with my orders!)



Oh, and don't forget about our good old Ebay!
I recently won these items, which are on it's way to me now! ;)




You must take a look at this amazing Ebayshop!
You just fall in love with the goods she sells...and the way the seller shows her stuff...she certainly did a great job! <3





^ Isn't this the sweetest? I really love it! :)

Before I forget!!
I hereby tag these 6 lovers to also do this tag:

Kim, Angelaaaaa, Heather, Hollie, Missa and Heleen db!

LOVE this little Bambi mom gave me!



Psst....Sabrina!
This is coming your way...

(and many, many more...)

I loved reading this! All the things you love made me smile a whole lot! I wish I could help you out with the japanese, but I only know so little, gomen ne! But that zakka stuff are really amazing! Your moms stuff is amazing too, I love the skirt of hers!

And the package! I really hope the mail people will handle it with care because it's so beautiful! And the lace... And the birdie... everything is so perfect and cute! I hope I get it tomorrow, I shall stalk the delivery guy!

Thanks again for everything!

Miss Fluff said...

Your mother has great style! I loved reading this, also. Though, I'm still a bit perplexed on exactly what Zakka is. I googled it too. Is it simply the fabric, that makes the items?

I love collecting pretty things too! Have you ever managed to walk by, and see perhaps the prettiest colored item (even if it's of no use), and pick it up? I often do, and then plan on using them toward my scrapbooking. I've named this problem of mine, "Magpie Syndrome". :)

joanita said...

all those materials! I love it!

vintageveggie said...

what a happy post full of so much love.

my favorite part is about your mother. i am so jealous that you have such a tight bond with your mother. not many people have that, including me, and although i am working on it, it's really difficult for some reason with us, and yeah, i just think it's really wonderful when people have that with their moms.

ABCDErica said...

I love those little cutesy things and pretty dainty, wonderful things. :)

Mila said...

Thank you all so much.
You wonderful girls..
<3

muchlove said...

your posts are so full of beauty and inspiration.
btw, I just checked out your shop - and it's gorgeous!

hollie said...

Thank you so much for the tag sweetie pie! I might do it on my new blog if that is ok?? www.littlelostlove.blogspot.com

There is a Zakka store near my house in Melbourne, Would you perhaps like to do a swap? I could send you a little gift and something handmade by me. Email me if you like (hollie@hokey.com.au)

Kisses, Hollie xx

Mila,
Halo von Deutschland! I love lace just as much as you! I actually learned how to make bobbin lace and have been doing it on and off the past 8 years. I inherited all of my mom's lace making books and lace making pillow...its not that hard to start...Torchon lace is the easiest to get started. Try contacting the IOLI international lace maker association.

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.Generic Viagra is a prescription drug, commonly used to help treat men having erectile dysfunction (ED) problems, also known as impotence. Generic Propecia comes in tablet form and should be taken only by men without liver problems. It should be taken regularly and needs to be taken with water - food is optional. Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.Generic Cialis is the buzzword prescribed for all patients suffering from impotence. Generic Levitra is an FDA-approved oral medication to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) in men.
