Moss Terrarium - Mechové terrarium

Jeste nez zacnu z dnesnim prispevkem, chtela bych jen pripomenout, ze zitra 31.10. se uzavira nase akce "vymena chnapek". Zitra rozeslu jmena  kam vase vyrobky poputuji a pak se jen budu tesit na ukazky vasi prace. Zatim  vsem moc dekuji za ucast a priste uslysite vice.

Dnes bych vam chtela ukazat mechove terarium. Jako mnoho dalsich napadu a inspirace, bylo terarium na mem seznamu veci, do kterych se "jednou" pustim. Pred par dny jsem nasla tento podrobny postup a tak prikladam jen par mych fotografii. Ciste kaminky na dno na ne vrstva uhliku( ja je vybrala z polela ale prodavaji se treba v akvarijnich potrebach do filtru) a vrstva vlhke hliny. Na ni uz jen date mech, zastriknete vodou, utrete steny sklenice a umistite ozdobu podle vaseho vkusu. Ja mela maleho kolouska, ktery se velikosti do me zavarovacky krasne hodil. Nezapomente zavickovat, tim si mech udrzuje vlhkost a pekne se zelena a roste. Podle potreby roste (zavlazujte) a radujte se z maleho lesniho kralovstvi!


 Today, I would like to show you Moss Terrarium. It was on my  list " to do things "  for a long time, like many other projects and ideas. Couple of days ago I stumbled over this wonderful tutorial  . You can see the instructions there so I am just giving you few of my photos. It was fast and easy project. Because we live in the country I had everything on hand, I just had to step out in the yard and gather some rocks, moss and charcoal from the fire pit and within 15 minutes I was done. I do like it a lot, it's my little green forest oasis inside the house :)

Christmas preparations - Vanocni pripravy

Výmena chnapek zdarile pokracuje a kdokoli by mel jeste zajem, muze se pripojit.  Rozhodla jsem se vam ukazat barevnou kombinaci v ktere jsem mou chnapku uhackovala ja. Ke komu poputuje jeste nevim, vylosuji jmena na konci mesice pro vsechny ucastnice teto vymeny.........

Our  Potholder Swap is in full swing but if you are interested you can still join in. I decided to share the color scheme in which I made my potholder. Just a little sneak peek for you guys! I will draw the names to whom you will ship your creation at the end of this month........





 Vcera jsem zacala z vanocnim tvorenim, mam predplacene misto na dvou vanocnich trzich a nic na prodej, tak si musim pospisit :)

I have started making Christmas stuff for craft fairs, I already prepaid a spot at two of them and I have nothing to sell. I better hurry up :)


Takhle vznika prvni sobik, je to muj prototip a proto ta barevna kombinace. Nechtelo se mi hned napoprve strihat do novych lnenych latek  ( fotky priste )  a tak jsem vyuzila co bylo po ruce.


This is my first try to make this moose that's why the weird color combination. I didn't want to cut into my new linen fabrics that I bought for future projects so I used what I had on hand.
 


Jeste nema prisite nozky a "nekouka",  houpaci podstavec bude dalsi  nova zkusenost. Neil me koupil motorovou pilku ( tolik novych moznosti) na vyrezavani veci ze dreva. Ted si ji alespon vyzkousim.

No legs or eyes yet and also the rocking base is missing. Another new project, Neil bought me a scroll saw ( oh, the possibilities ) and it's time for me to try it out.


Take vam musim ukazat jak mi rozkveta Azalka. Dostala jsem ji minuly rok od pritelkine ale po odkvetu jsem myslela, ze je sni konec. Cele leto  byla venku, kde jsem ji poctive prihnojovala a ted, kdyz je zase doma se rozhodla kvest.


I have to show you this Azalea that I've got last year form a friend. I thought It was going to die after it bloomed. I put it outside for the summer and fertilized it religiously when I saw the new growth. It is back in the house now and starting to bloom. 



 Jak jiste uz vite, rada vam vzdy prinasim nejakou novou inspiraci. A protoze vanoce se pomalu ale jiste blizi,  tady je stranka z ruznymy napady.

As you know I like to leave you with some inspiration and because Christmas is slowly approaching  here is a page with holiday crafts ideas.

Hornby

Minuly tyden jsme stravili na Hornby, poklizeli jsme  a " zazimovali "  dum a zahradu. Neil si tam mimo sezonu casto " zaskoci", ja tam prez zimu jezdim minimalne.  Byla to take dobra lekce pro Dominika. Skolni autobus nam tady v Merville stavi primo u domu a cesta do skoly trva neco prez pul hodiny. Takze rano jede v 8:00 a v 16:00 je doma. Ovsem z ostrova Horny je to jine kafe. Autobus ho vyzvedaval v 7:00  a domu se dostal v 17:30.  (skola je  od 9 do 15:00)  Tak si moc dobre uvedomil, jak to mistni deti maji tezke. V zimnich mesicich je rano i vecer, kdyz se vrati domu  tma.
   Pocasi nam pralo, moc jsem bohuzel nefotila a tak alespon par snimku z nasi ulice. Aralia v barvach podzimu. Jmeno mi prozradila Jaromilka, dekuji!


We spent the last week on Hornby, cleaning and winterizing the yard and house. Neil  often goes there in the winter, I on the other hand  usually stay home. It was a good lesson for Dominik. In Merville, the school bus stops right at the end of our property and the ride takes little over half an hour. He leaves at 8am and is at home by 4 pm. ( school goes from 9 to 3 )  On Hornby he had to be at the bus stop at 7 am and wasn't back till 5:30 pm.. He also had to walk one street over. He did realize how good he has it, compere to the Hornby kids. In the winter months they leave and come back home in the dark, day after day :(
  We had beautiful weather  but I did not take many pictures. Here are few photos from our neighbors property, I don't know the exact  name of these trees,  but they are so gorgeous this time of the year. 









Take jsem nazbirala lisky a bedly a vcera jsme si na nich pochutnali v polevce.

I also picked some mushrooms,  we already enjoyed them in the soup I made yesterday.






A aby houbicek nebylo malo, dnes jsem v sekaci koupila tyto umelohmotne dozy.

I " picked " more mushrooms today at the thrift store. Funky, retro jars.







Vcera jsme se vratili domu a Dominik i ja jsme  pekne nastydli, cpeme se vitaminama, echinaceou a popijime caj. A co jste delali o vikendu vy?

We came home yesterday and both Dom and I are down with cold. We are taking  vitamins, echinacea  and drink lots of hot tea.  What did you do this weekend ?
