...just another ordinary day....
After Marta goes to school(7.50 am) and Pablo to the kindergarten(sometimes around 9 am), Bianka and I usually go for a walk. Sometimes we go to the park, sometimes we do some shopping in the center's stores and at least one in a week we go to the market to buy some goodies;).
Market is very near, as all the rest of the most important stores and facilities, and this is one of the big advantages when living in the center of the city and I love it:)
I really can't imagine how it would be if I would need to take the car to do any of these things, and really prefer doing it all just walking:)
Anyway, yesterday, going to the market I happen to have my camera in the bag and took advantage of it by taking some pictures. Just the ordinary pics of the things I see and strongly admire everytime I pass by there....just some beautiful, mainly vintage and old windows, gates and structures.....having that "abandoned" or "wish you were here" or "nostalgic" sort of look, that is like talking to me and always influencing my inspiration even regarding kids clothes(I very often spot the place and than imagine in what sort of the creation Marta would look best taken in front of it,LOL).....
Belgrade and especially the center area where we live, that is called Stari grad is full of very contrasted things, and even regarding the architecture(that is sometimes very ugly view), having some very old and small and some freshly new and tall buildings one beside another...just like you can see the view from our balcony
Well, here are some pics...
here you can see our balcony behind that beautiful old building.
Also, for those reading my blog, this gate may be familiar when taking the pics of my Antique GOLD dress and in the backyard there are those beautiful stairways.
this one is one of my FAVs
I so wish that in front of this beautiful wooden gate there wasn't the iron gate that is always closed and therefore impossible to enter:(
this restaurant of the national cuisine is just in front of our building
and has these great vintage bicycles in the passage
Well, I think it is enough.....
So if you ask me what was the purpose of going to the market, I will tell you that I bought some great food for the stomach and lunch and also, some food for the head(some great laces and stuff).
And for many of you asking me if I'm preparing something for the Holidays, as it is quite a lot that I'm not listing anything, the answer is YES, and you can see some sneak peaks just and only here;)...the dress is an OOAK and will be offered only once.
AnthologyInc is having the Holiday launch next week on eBay, so stay tuned;)
