Istrian Seaside Break

It was the end of September in Istria, in the village of Bale. In the hotel named La Grisa with the best restaurant in Istria (2013.) with the same name. The food was divine.
If you ever come to Istria go and visit this small village where you can hear the silence.

The hotel is made of 6 or 7 neighboring houses with 2 entrances and restaurant terrace/foyer in the middle.
Each room is furnished and decorated differently, in a modern way, but with a touch of the original old house. I really liked staying there.

 Entrance II (our) with the original well
Passage between houses/restaurant terrace behind the wall. Local's were passing by and wished us Buon appetito! a good appetite in domestic Italian dialect :) Yes they are Croatians but with Italian heritage. Istrians speaks two languages​​. And right in the village of Bale people speak old Italian Latin dialect.
 old narrow streets

abandoned houses
wanna buy?

Sea view from our room window.......the sea is 12 km away....National Park Brijuni Islands
Brijuni Islands
with our friends
We rent the old rusty bicycles and it was really fun
and breathtaking
and fun again. The entrance to safari park opened the same way as Jurrasic park gate :D
 Rovinj again
Wind rosette...if you stand in the middle you can designate the name of the wind that is currently blowing.
 architecture is similar to the Italian
 searching for the best pizza in Rovign...we found it!
 The real seaside attitude
And finally my dear, my life companion and..... you guessed, my photographer.

200 sales on Etsy and Crying over the blue garter belts

The last week was the day when I had 200th sale from my Etsy shop! Yay!!!! I think I did quite well in the past year.
Who would have thought that a classic garter belts would sell so well
Last year at the same time I had 1327 views, 128 favorites and 1 sale. Now I have 4264 views, 369 favorites (which is unusually low) and 19 sales and it's only middle of the month.

What I do not like about this job is that I never know how many supplies should I purchased because each month is different. That's why I'm always in deadline rush, because shipments of course does not come at the time when I 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 adequate black Lycra fabric. Wish me luck.

This week I had to cancel the order on blue garter belt because I ran out of blue strap elastic. After a long search I found it in a Dutch online store and I was sooooo happy.............until then when I saw how much postage is required for 25m strap elastic......ridiculous 30. Elastic costs is 7.62. 
I really can not understand why they have so unnecessarily large postage. I could cry because of that. My husband says that it would be ridiculous waste of money.

It is better to put a large cross over the beautiful all blue Garter belt. No more. Nema više. No más. Keine mehr. Niente più.
Just to remember....
