Stylish Blogger Award 2012

It's June! ..half year passed. However, better late than never :)
Two months ago the lovely and very 'delicious' blog Villa-alps gave me a stylish blogger award! Thank you, Asta. I’m really honored!

The 'rules' for accepting this award are:
  • Thank and link back to the person who nominated you this award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Award 5-10 blogs you follow.
  • Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
So here it goes, seven things about me:

 1.I adore photography as it can say so much without words! It gives the infinite ability to express feelings, to capture the beauty of each moment, to archive whatever you want ..all the time. Photography inspires me!
My favorite quote about it: You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.  ~Ansel Adams.
 2.A perfect evening for me: a cold  glass of white wine + gourmet snacks +  friend with whom we feel comfortable, even in silence..
 3.I love high heels and I am still insecure about my height :)
 4.When I was a little girl, I used to spend my summers in my village Kernave(ancient capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania). Everything here was amazing for me: beautiful landscape and nature, church and chapels, people, the house of my grandma's.. As far as I remember myself, the archaeological excavations here were carried out each summer. Uh, it seemed so interesting!  I tried to imagine how people lived in ancient times.. and I wanted to travel to the past too.
 5.I am a bit fanatical about cleaning and organizing. But this desire to clean house is waning with each child  :)) Anyway, I like when things have their places.
 6.Don't try to lie to me! :) I have really good memory.
 7.I like  all summer things: meadow flowers and butterflies, cherries and watermelons, a lot of ice cream, dresses and beach bags, road trips and vacations by the sea, long evenings and sunny mornings..
And now I present the Stylish Blogger Award to 7 creative and talented bloggers:
I hope you find them as interesting as I do!

Prisipažinsiu, kad man pačiai mieliausia velti būtent tokio modelio veltinukus. Švelni, kruopščiai iššukuota merino vilna itin 'molinga', lipdai kaip tau reik, nei rankų kandžioja, nei įnoringa, lengvai išglostoma ir 'išmyluojama' :) Veltinukai lengvučiai ir žiauriai patogūs, o tampriai susipynę ilgi vilnos plaukeliai garantuoja tvirtą struktūrą. Ir spalvinių variantų tikrai nemažai. Siūlau derinti klasikines pilką, baltą, rudą, juodą su ryškesnėmis: įvairių atspalvių raudona, alyvine, oranžine ar persikine, samanų ar turkio žalia, dangaus ar karališka mėlyna arba rinktis dvi panašaus atspalvio vilnas.  Taip, kad jei vis dar abejojot kokių šlepečių norite, sklaidau visas dvejones - šios geriausios! ;)

I should confess, this model of home slippers is my favorite. Gentle, carefully garnetted merino wool is like sculptor's clay :)It's very moldable and pliable, yet strong and hardy as closely intertwined wool fibers ensure a solid structure. These slippers are lightweight and very comfortable. Also there are various colors available. I propose to combine the classic grey, white, brown, black with stronger players: different shades of red, lilac, orange or peach, moss or turquoise green, royal or sky blue. Another option - choose two similar shades of the same color. So if you were doubt about which slippers you want, be sure - these are the best! ;)
