One World One Heart 2011 and my Giveaway

Lisa Swifka started One world One Heart in 2007, as a way of bringing bloggers together from all over the world.This year is the final one.I'm participating for the second time.Here is my last entry.You can also join, meet new friends and discover beautiful things they do..

I'm Vesna and I live in a beautiful medieval European town Ljubljana. I like to travel and create different objects using materials such as wool, felt, fabric,paper and porcelain. I also collect lovely vintage pieces.I'm glad you stopped by for a visit.

For this year's giveaway I have two lovely handmade items for you. One is my needle felted Loving tree brooch/ pin. I used natural,brown, green and pink wool. It is soft and cozy.

Loving Tree Brooch/Pin

My second giveaway item is one of my retro inspired granny crocheted hangers. I enjoy making them. My giveaway crocheted hanger will be perfect for one of your special dresses. Just handle it with care.

Retro inspired granny style crocheted hanger

To get Loving Tree needle felted brooch or granny chic hanger you just write a comment about your creations, collections, hopes, dreams...anything that defines you or just anything you would like to write to me.

You can participate with your comments until February 17th. On the next day I will announce two winners, and then my soft crocheted hanger and the brooch can be shipped to them. Have a nice time, smile a lot and enjoy this special worldwide event.

Thank you Lisa for hosting this worldwide event!!

Letos drugič sodelujem v tem simpatičnem svetovnem blogerskem dogodku.Lansko leto sem tako odkrila kar nekaj blogov, ki so mi zelo všeč in jih spremljam še naprej. Podarila sem starega medvedka, ki je šel na Filipine. Letos podarjam filcano broško z drevescem in kvačkan "obešalnik iz babičine omare".  Napišite, kaj je tisto, kar radi počnete ali karkoli bi pač radi napisali....Komentarje sprejemam do 17. februarja, naslednji dan bom izžrebala dva, in sicer nekdo dobi broško in še nekdo kvačkan obešalnik.Lahko pa tudi sodelujete s svojim darilom.Vse podrobnosti najdete tukaj. Prijetno potovanje!

    Your pieces are beautiful.
    The only thing I truly collect is art & handmade creations from friends and artists around the world. I keep most of it up here in my computer/relaxation room. It makes me happy to look around and see it hanging from the ceiling or displayed on the shelves. It inspires me to create.
