Rainy days are pretty!

Yep, summer is officially gone and today's wheather proved it.
I managed to take a couple of pictures from inside the car on our way back from the gym and I can't wait to print and frame all of them! They just look sooooo magical!

i Love you!

When you have a special someone, you need to show him your love every single day, in a different way. When you have a special someone you somehow know you are even more special to deserve him or her. When you have a special someone, you feel inspired to create beautiful things all the time.
When you have a special someone, ordinary things like drinking tea become rituals of love and joy. Boring shopping becomes party at the supermarket. Driving is more like a secret mini-concert.
I had a great Monday just because my boy was at home. And how was your day?

Good Morning!

What's more wonderful than a nice cup of tea in bed on a Sunday morning? Especially when it's raining outside and you can hear the raindrops drumming on your windowsill. It's such a delight!
I l-o-v-e this time of the year, I love my boy, bringing me tea in bed, I love how Dexter snuggles up to me when he hears a strange sound... oh, how I love Sunday mornings!
What do you love to do on a Sunday morning?

Rainy days

I can't wait for the first real autumn rain!
I cannot seem to find the proper yellow umbrella I'm dreaming for though (like this pretty one!). I've almost fulfilled my fall wishlist (for clothes & accessories mainly), so I am absolutely ready for the changeable weather autumn brings!
So, what's in your fall wishlist?

My first pattern!

I've always wanted to know how to create patterns. Today I watched some tutorials and although I didn't quite get the main point, I managed to do something quite like it. The thing is, I don't want my patterns to look like this - all pictures in a line. I want them to be less symmetrical, but I cannot seem to find the way... Can anyone give me a clue? :)

Just the thought of the outside weather is inspiring in autumn!
It was sunny but chilly today and leaves were floating all over! The most beautiful splash of colours!
It took me like the whole day to finish this drawing (considering the hair details) but I love the end result! It's simple and "autimnish" - my 2 favourite things!
I have so many ideas in my head right now that I can't choose what to start first! I've left writing aside for some time, which means I have more time for drawing and taking pictures. Yay! Isn't fall just lovely?

Welcome, Fall!

It's the first (official) day of Fall and I cannot be happier!
I had a wonderful wonderful day with my boy preparing for the new season! We went shopping and (as hard it is to believe) I found everything I was looking for! I bought myself a wonderful trenchcoat, some really cute ankle boots (which I've wanted for a looong long time!), a nice dress and this lovely owl-necklace to welcome the fall with! Wow!
I also finally found the perfect cup for my tea! I've always wanted it to be a Starbucks one but I'd only seen coffee cups there... And I got lucky once again! I found this cuuute retro cup and even bought my boy one, too! Isn't that the best start of my favourite season?

Sail away sail awaay

I've been pretty busy lately with writing and I hadn't drawn anything for quite some time. But! The good news is that I'm really serious with this story I'm working on and I have lots and lots of ideas about the plot. Hooray!
My boy is off to another town and I have a couple of days just for myself so I guess I'll have time for both writing and drawing :)

have a wonderful weekend!

It was a special day today!

My boy just turned 22 today! Hooray!
Me and Dexter organized a party for three and it was so much fun! We decorated the whole kitchen and surprised Lazar and it was lovely! It wasn't anything special - we just had some cake and celebrated at home, tomorrow is the great party... Anyways - this is the third birthday I spend with my boy (and the first one with Dexter in the house!) and it gets better and better every single year!
I just can't believe how time passes by. Just the other day we barely knew each other, now me and my boy live together, have a cute-cute dog and dream together. I just hope that this will never change...
Happy birthday, cutie!

A day at home

I've been writing short stories and poetry since my first year in high school (or even earlier) and I've always dreamt about publishing a book. I remember writing a story called "The Discovery" when I was 12, about a group of friends who land on Mars (ha-ha!) but it's too bad I've lost the file. I've since written lots of poems and stories, but have never managed to write something longer than that.
A year or so ago I wrote a couple of chapters of something, but unfortunately I lost both files on my laptop and the flashdrive I had backed them up. I've never written anything too serious to be too mad about losing, but it's just sad I never get to keep what I've done. The only writings I haven't lost are those published in my other blog ( - it's in Bulgarian though).
Anyways, yesterday I decided I would no longer write on my laptop. I bought a nice notebook with yellow pages and since then I've written about 10 pages (which is A LOT for me!). I have this completely new idea and I'm so excited when I write! So please, keep your fingers crossed I'll be inspired enough to finish this story and not to lose my notebook and... who knows - you may see me signing books in a couple of years! :)

I wanted to do a little virtual tour of our home and here it is - a couple of cute peeks from here and there! I've been working really hard on decorating this place and making it cosier and prettier and I think I've done a good job for now (although I have a lot more to do!). I l-o-v-e treasure hunting for home decorations or drawing new paintings just to hang them on the wall later on or buying colourful sheets or more and more and more new books for the library. I'll never get tired of this - it's so thrilling!

picture include:
- cute little clock with legs!
- kitchen corner
- motivational painting + smiley bank
- reading place
- adorable strawberry pillow
- bedroom sneak peek
- fridge (it's an old photo... the magnets are A LOT more now... plus, i've added some beautiful photos!)
- a small part of the library
- comfy couch in the living room
- pop art wall in corridor
- key box
- my closet
- another corridor art wall
- dining room table

I spent days and days and days looking for it and I finally found it! The perfect tea box!
I've been so crazy about tea lately - I drink it almost all the time! I've been dreaming about a tea box for quite some time now but couldn't find it anywhere, so imagine me seeing it today in the mall AT LAST! It's Twinings' gift box and it contains 6 different tea flavours. I just can't wait to taste them all!

Where dreams are born...

I'm working on projects for our lovely art wall whenever I have the time. And here's the new member of the family!
"Where dreams are born" looks rather simple and ordinary, but is quite special and meaningful to me. It represents my life here, in Sofia, with my favourite boy and cute-cute dog. A lot of my dreams right now were actually born here and I am working hard on making them come true. A lot of my boy's dreams were born here, too; we even shared some. I bet Dexter has some dreams he doesn't want to share, which are again born here, in our little home.
So call it a dream factory, our home. It'll be absolutely true.

Read of the Month: September

My read of the month is called Juntacadáveres by Juan Carlos Onetti. It's a book from 1964 but I found it republished and I have to admit I bought it because of the beautiful cover. (I actually do judge a book by its cover!)
It's a dramatic story about a place called Santa Maria, where Junta (the main character) wants to open a public house but faces the resistance of the native people. I've only read a couple of chapters but it's definitely an interesting book to read before going to sleep!

New Layout!

I worked on the upper banner image for quite some time for purposes different than using it here on my blog. However, when I finished it, I thought it would be perfect for here. I then decided to cahnge the link images, too, which was waaay easier. So, here it is - my new autumn layout :)

just wanted to sketch something and use it later on, but without any effort it turned out to be a perfect little picture of a baby monster (trying to eat up the whole city!).

Happy September!

I really thought that the end of the summer was far far away but September came and proved me wrong. Just for one day the temperatures fell rapidly and I even had to bring out my scarf and hat just to go to the movies! Brr! Anyways - I love this time of the year. Fall is the most inspiring season of it all and I am so excited!
Today I made myself a cup of my favourite tea (Earl Gray), sat by the window and drew all day while the wind was blowing outside. Couldn't think of a better way to say hello to the Fall!
