Inspirational Works

I do nothing and show nothing... But Sandra's decoupaged soaps look so lovely that I decided to give it a go! This is a result:

I've decoupaged some soaps once while making bathroom set but that time it was pure decorative.


But Sandra knows the way of making them practical, so that the picture stays intact while you use the soap (I checked!). It seems I am hooked and I will definitely make more!

And at the end I would like to show some pictures of my new hydrangeas. This hydrangea macrophylla Masja is a compact plant, ideal for growing in containers. I am not very keen on the macrophyllas, but I like the deep colour and tidy appearance of the plant.

This one is hydrangea paniculata 'Vanilla Fraise'. I do like the paniculatas and this one is stunning! When I got a new plant this spring I was disappointed with it's size - it looked more like a rooted cuttings than a proper plant. But by the August it produced three huge heads which change the colour from the pure white to the blushing pink. Looks absolutely great!
