It was the endof September inIstria, in thevillage ofBale. In the hotel named La Grisa with the best restaurant in Istria (2013.) with the same name. The food wasdivine. If you ever come to Istria go and visit this small village whereyou can hearthe silence.
The hotel is made of 6 or 7 neighboring houses with 2 entrances and restaurant terrace/foyer in the middle. Each room is furnishedanddecorated differently,in a modern way, butwith a touch ofthe originaloldhouse. I really liked staying there.

The last week was the day when I had 200th sale from my Etsy shop! Yay!!!! I think Idid quite wellin thepastyear. Who would havethought thata classicgarter belts wouldsellso well. Last yearat the same timeI had1327views, 128favoritesand1sale. Now I have 4264 views, 369 favorites (which is unusually low) and 19 sales and it's onlymiddle of the month.
What I do notlike aboutthis jobis thatI neverknow how manysuppliesshould Ipurchasedbecause eachmonth is different. That's why I'm alwaysin deadline rush,becauseshipmentsof coursedoes not comeat the timewhenI need to. Right now I'm waiting for a black Lycra, my No.1 supply . Fabric was dispatched a week before last week together with another package. So, the other package came last Friday and package with fabric is still not here (it's Friday again). Did package lost? What to do? Should I order another fabric? But then I'll have to wait another week to come. If it's still doesn't come until Monday I'll have to go to Zagreb and try to find an adequateblack Lycra fabric. Wish me luck. This weekI had tocancel theorderon bluegarter beltbecause Iran out ofbluestrap elastic. After a long searchI founditina Dutchonlinestore and I was sooooo happy.............untilthenwhen I sawhow muchpostageis required for25mstrap elastic......ridiculous€30. Elastic costs is €7.62.
