The vine suit

The vine suit is ready. Finally!!!
I don't like green. It was hard from this point of view. My eyes are tired and I feel nauseous.
I think it looks good.

My daughter has a violet turtleneck and a violet tights for this suit.
I must apply some little grapes on a violet head band and that's all.
I really don't know what to do on the back. To put or not to put something.

Flowering hats

Today I applied some of the flowers I made to my daughter's hats.
It's so cold outside and every time we must go out she wants only one hat because it has a flower on it.
 I crochet this hat for spring and isn't good for this time of the year.

I had the idea to apply flowers on her hats. Now she likes the hats with flowers. She has another hats but the flowers we have aren't for them. I will try to crochet some roses and to apply on the other hats.

Working to the second pillow

These days I was working to the second crochet pillow.
My daughter's room is white with a lot of pink and violet.

The first pillow was pink so the second should be violet.
I tried to choose the colors and in the end I decided what colors to use.
I think it looks good.

Hair tonic

1 cup of fresh rosemary tips
5 cups water

Place the rosemary and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes, then allow to cool in a pan.
Strain the liquid and use a funnel to pour it into a clean bottle. Use it immediately. Next time make another  tonic.
This hair tonic made from fresh rosemary can be used as a substitute for mildly shampoons. It is also effective in controlling greasy hair and enhances the shine and natural color, especially of dark hair. Use this tonic as a final finishing rinse after shampooing, catching it in a bowl and pouring it repeatedly through the hair.

Waiting for the winter

The autumn is here and the winter is near. What shall I do?
First I prepared the Sea Buckthorn. It's full of vitamin C and keeps you away from cold. I bought the Sea Buckthorn one month ago, I prepared it with honey and now I will use it.
This is my Sea Buckthorn:

Second step is to drink a lot of tea: nettle tea, green tea, anti fat tea. But always drink water and never juice. Only fresh juice.

Third step is sports. In these time of the year we tend to stay and stay because is cold and dark outside. This is not good for our body. I always do something in this period. 

Fourth step is my skin. The autumn is here from Sunday and my skin felt it. So I am ready to use a lot of masks, hand cream, face cream, body cream, oils, and so on.

The fifth step is to eat a lot of fruits, nuts, seeds, vegetables.
They say is good to eat seasonal fruits and vegetables.

And always have flowers on my table. They makes your life beautiful.
