‘There are times when in order to keep ourselves in existence at all, we simply have to sit back for a while and do nothing’ – said by Thomas Merton and nicely call our attention again to this true by Arriana Huffinton, I found by reading all kind of things today …
‘Do nothing’ is one of the best things you can add to your to-do list. – she wrote in her capture.
but, I think, these thoughts only work if you yourself are turned on ‘do nothing’ mode.
anyway its true.
But how can I do nothing?
i’ll try it today. somehow.
I already know what I will going to do in order to ‘do nothing’!
I always do something when I do nothing. Automatic things which doesn’t need many attention as like washing the dishes, cleaning a shelf … useful things that I can resolve in 5-10 minutes. (I have special theory about 5-small-thing-to-resolve-per-day actions!
Being always engaged in something, creating accurate stuffs step by step, millimeter by millimeter, for me the ‘stop and smell the roses’ mode is … not easy.
Trying to DO NOTHING, today I organized my shops virtual shelves. New items, new search, new photos, etc. Amusing things, but still is not the BIG NOTHING.
So I tried to doodle my thoughts. What color has the nothing? How can I describe?
Here is my answer. nothing is almost WHITE.
after several days …
even my intention was to give you some informative thought about how I find my ‘do nothing’, I found myself doodling and doodling. That’s my do nothing.
try it. anywhere. anytime. (you know how boring some meetings are !
in the end maybe you’ll find yourself doing something beautiful.
Do n(o/a) thing.
These are some ‘do nothings’ of mine. Postcard, artprints , illustrations …
Some of them are for sale. 😉
more on my site here: www.clothchapel.com
p.s.: write me how do you do your ‘do nothing’. It is so difficult for you too?
This post is not about spying or something related. :—-) It’s about the trust, fashion and quality.
Even it could be interesting if we (girls) would have some stuff which would helps us to reveal information about our boyfriends, but – believe me – what needed to be revealed will be revealed soon or later.
Trust is necessary not just in field of love, but also of luxury and quality.
When I invented my first bracelet I gave it for my boyfriend. With love and for testing of love and trust.
It was a very simply stripy blue bracelet I made by very thin yarn. Destinated for everydays wear. Here is the first picture about it:
… and H e worn it days and nights, summer and winter, cold and hot, into the salt water of seven seas, dipping it in all sort of mud … You know how the b o y s are! .-)) –
It was there at Haiti’s ruins, deep in Cambodian jungles, scattered in sand of Africa, looking for Luxor’s hidden treasuries in Valley of Kings … so it knows a lot about my boyfriend and about world …
Turning know more than 3 years the bracelet still looks great and H e still wear it with love …
That is the T R U S T.
p.s.: Now He’s got an other bracelet. So comfy that he want to wear it day and night.:)))
This is a very unique one. I don’t want to make any similar bracelet anymore, but the Zé bracelets are very popular and are available also for costumers. Each of them has some tiny tricks that makes it different from the others!
Aw, I forget it! If you follow my Instagram account you can win a couple bracelet. Details here:

Searching for a good place for photo-shooting of this little white eco-smart bracelet wearing below, I realized how difficult is to find a really perfect place to express more than a stuff.
If you are a fashion-blogger, I’ m pretty sure you have a couple of places where you are crazy in looove to take pictures. Here are some of which inspires me a lot searching after new cool places.
Who has no taken a photos on/next/near/under… stairways? Stairs are usually so neutrals that every street-style goes well with them. Look at these cuties!
Even if the whole picture is almost gray, it’s so good to look at it. The stair seems quite old and rusty, but the smile of this model (Nina Schwichtenberg) and that amaranth red floral print on her pants are enough to bright up the whole style of this picture. Bookmarked by alb_fashionaire (Instagram)
There are limitless examples, but I think the stairs fits for everyone. .)
Tonya Smith and her style from www.themoptop.com
This picture is almost monochrome, but that simple t-shirt with red letters strikes this old-fashioned ‘postcard’.
Here is another fave-picture of mine. Oh, these ruined walls!
Blackberry-yoghurt-like patch composed between old greens!
Wonderland from themoptop. Again bc I like it! .)
I think this kind of organized ‘jungle’ is the most perfect place for photo-shooting a white dress. I love the trick of matching the colors of the model’s (Tonya Smith) hair with her shoes and the rusty power of that plant in the background. Lol! .)
Mention: This kind of arched windows as the old green doors have special place deep in my heart.
p.s.: So the background is always significant part of a good styling. Don’t mind the time to find the perfect one.

You can find many ways to mix the old styles with modern look. Just take a tour at Net for some smart style-guides or just listen to your inner taste.
I also prefer the vintage clothes. They are well-made timeless pieces. But maybe you are that person who feel uncomfortable in clothes wored by someone else in the past.
I’m making clothes and accessories exactly those who are in love with the well-tailored vintage clothes, but afraid to wear them.
Here some details from my last year works. Monthly moments of my taste. Get inspired and feel free to introduce some vintage-styled elements in your everydays outfit.
Enjoy the style! ;×

In that morning my face has got a new contour without any botox. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t noticed anything strange. I went to work as usual, but at noon a monster stared back at me through my monitor mirror. My hole forehead was like the Avatar’s navy rubbery mask … It was if something wanted to come out of my forehead.
People were moving around me slowly all day … they moved like usual used to move around a hangover girl. I was soooo frustrated by this incomprehensible caution.
Would have been cool if I had a pair of sunglasses, but just someones pathetic sunnies I found in hurry in the property room… Can you imagine how ridiculous I was walking wearing all day sunglasses? Indoooor !??? Aw! It was so so terrible, but I was afraid to took off it even when I had to go down to the hall for welcome the guests… I must to mention: I wasn’t hangover ever!
Down to the hall a few weeks-old baby smiled at me. Maybe the babies can see the humans aura, isn’t they?, I thought little relieved.
But this feel tooks just a second, because I realized: this little soul heard my voice before we met. That’s why he smiled so cute at me. I often talked with her mother by phone while he was still in her belly. Now, he recognized me. That’s all!
So, babe, you are a Monsterina after all …
Nonetheless I worked steadily by the end of the day and tried to avoid the eye-contacts and my colleagues’s funny remarks : “Hey, babe! Let’s face the true story of your distorted pretty face … you was beat up by your boyfriend, isn’t it? ” blablabla …
The true is that I slept alone that night …
Fortunately, the guests were so excited due to the casting they came for, that they don’t bothered with my alienlike-face. Or they considered as a part of the show … I don’t know … but I had no time for further explanations …
… The doctor found two barely visible bite-point. Spider, she said. I’ve got a Calcimusc injection (+a recipe that I never used) and a deeply suggestion of using of the vaccum cleaner. I told her that I’m an obsessive cleaniness-addict person, but I can’t hurt the spiders – although now I know that they have the ability to settle off the face of any human ….
But – of course – I was absolutelly curious. Who was that Offender and how does it look like?
When I got home, there was not much light in the room. First, I examined the mattress on which I slept the night before. Then I divided the ground into smaller districts. I slowly checked everything. But nothere a spider. Even a single bug.
I stopped in front of the bookshelves and lay down deep to the floor. I lighted up each corner with my phone …
Suddenly I saw a tiny, almost transparent something running in hurry away from me. It was soooo fragile that suddenly becomes ridiculous how I imagined it before. It isn’t a Monster, I smiled and caught him up with a glass. He was sooo tiny and scared. Oh, little boy/girl!
I put him under the magnifying glass. I google it. Based on his figure, I found a good website for details – http://department.monm.edu/biology/recluse-project/identify.htm – …. They has as signature a small, dark violin on the front half of the body. Also the hairless legs and the uniform color elsewhere on the body. They’re really pretty dull looking. Brown recluses have only very fine hairs that are invisible to the naked eye. Also, they are truly reclusive and so are not often seen. That’s why is interesting how I could met with one of them. And also it is hard to understand how it managed to bite throught my skin (twice!). Usually they couldn’t bite throught the humans…
A brown recluse spider (Loxosceles reclusa) from the cross spiders family? Hm…
A few month later of these happens, I started to crochet. First time in my life! And I am learned it very quickly. It is amazing feeling!
Here is my first creation: a modern-renaissance lace collar made by me.
When you are in hurry, but have no time to change your #officelook, but want to arrive in time on evening party. Furtunately this little #collar fits perfect for that event and it is so small that you easily can take in your bag.
Since then I opened my first e-shop: the Crochetedbride (ClothChapel) full of vintage-look modern bohemian accessories and frilly dresses.
Here it is:

Here is a short post about a new flatlay got from @daianafolea, the winner of my previous Instagram game: “Looking for a Cinderella”. I love so much her (inner)style.
If you also like it, please read her fashion-story (posted before) and find how she wins this fingerless gloves made by me.
Who would not be curious as to what is going on behind the doors of a fashion house? What could they do there?
Here is one of my workspace arranged for making my September fashion-film about one of my newest one of a kind gloves with funny little skulls on each of the fingers …
If you are curious about this, you are welcome anytime. But if it isn’t possible because of distance or something else, you can look on the keyhole now. We are in lucky have a wonderful sunny day. Enjoy it! 🙂

When we entered in the castle of the Schossbergers, I couldn’t imagine that our visit is not an ordinary one …
It was just an sudden idea to go there … in spite of this, we went around there for hours. It seemed to be there only two of us. We thought that … at least … until we heard a soft wispering gliding from the corridor. I was just in the Palm House and Z. was waiting at the narrow passage that leads towards to me, then that sound took a shape(s)!
Two small snow-white dove was appeared next to Z. They were so graceful! But as if Z. wouldn’t be there, they passed by him and turned towad me.
Paralyzed with fear, all that I was able to asked from Z. was … aaaaa “You called them here?” .)
The pigeons were scurried very close to me … Slowly, but my blood returned in to my veins. Gently I pulled out my phone (Z. too), and as these little creatures approached to me, I succeeded to record some pictures of them.
The castle is beautiful, of course, but these unexpected things happened there made unforgettable to me…
It was so touching , that even several month later my soul “went back” to this place… until I came up with a game with Cinderella…
Why Cinderella? Because somehow she made me think of the gone-by castle’s life. It is true that there is the figure of Sleeping Beauty too, but I really don’t like her so… In addition, Cinderella has done a lot for her own happiness, not just dreaming and waiting for somebody’s kisses! … aaaand, curse or not, I voted for Cinderella because she was never afraid to use her hands for dusty work … And here is the point!
But this time my Cinderella had lost not of her shoes, but her gloves … in a very very hot evening-party… aaaand she loose not just these precious accessories, but a little bit her mind too, because she couln’t remember of the place where that event was … But whatever happens, she must to find that place. She really need that gloves! Nobody have such an one of a kind gloves like her!
I published it in many ways and as much as I could that I’m looking for Cinderella … I was excited to find her, she was excited about to get her gloves, and so it went on for months.
Here are some puzzle-piece of my game:
etc., etc., ….
…and as true stories use to be, no one was able to answer, however I tried to write and show immense of information, pictures and videos about castle… Oh, but if I would have started with Angelina Jolie filmed here too !!! Or with “The Secret of Moonacre” scenes ?! 🙂
Once someone (maybe from Japan?) was so close to the right answer, but couldn’t answer precisely the question: “Where is this castle? ” I was sad, but also strict: she wasn’t the real Cinderella.
Until suddenly from nowhere came a rather timid kind of question-answer from a girl named Daiana: “Tura?”
Yessssss! Daiana, you are the Cinderella! The winner! Congratulation!, I answered her, and I was very very happy. At last I can write a nice tale ending!
…and right in that night I announced that I found Cinderella and finally she found her gloves, which will be sent her by pigeons as soon as possible.
A few days ago, I got this “postcard” from her.
Such a lovely gesture! I like this picture: the styling, the lighting, the shooting, the love. Made by Cinderella herself. She is unique! She wears unique! She’s a really badass! 🙂
p.s.: I loved this game and maybe I will return with an other. If you want to read more about it, please find me at instagram: @albert_csilla (click on the one of the sidebar’s picture)

Today is my birthday. I usually don’t make a big deal out of it. Of course, I am glad that I was born, but I’ve never understood why we should celebrate it… Exactly 369 000 babies was born worldwide at the same time with me on that Tuesday. Mathematically I wasn’t born on August 19th, but even a year earlier in November 26th. That day was my real big bumm! And is much more sympathetic day for me. Aaaaaand that is the the official birthday of my godson! 🙂
At the school – if it was someone’s birthday in the classroom – it was customary to bring a cake. I didn’t have to, because my birthday was always in summer school-break…
Only on my 30-th birthday get my first birthday’s cake. It was ice-cream cake! I never understood the 18-th birthday’s importance either. I remember exactly about my 18th birthday, because I planned it precisely. In that day I went to my grandmother. Consciously. I picked potatoes all day because no one came to help her.
Today, however, I feel that I deserve to celebrate myself a little bit. Because I deserve it! Today is the birthday of my new webshop: www. ClothChapel.com ! Yeeeee! Hooray! (In the background: falling confetti! :))
Great! In future I ’m going to celebrate it in every year !http://www.clothchapel.com/index.html
P.S. : I know some people who are celebrated of their birthday on this same day. Some of them are simply ordinary people, but there are those who left their mark in history. For example Madame du Barry, Gene Roddenberry, John Deacon, John Stamos, Matthew Perry, Orville Wright, Robert Redford, Malcolm Forbes, Bill Clinton and one of my favorite designer : Coco Chanel.
Happy birthday for every soul born on August 19th!
