Marine Advent wreath / Morski adventski vjenčić

Ove godine sam odlučila napraviti nešto "morsko".
This year I have decide to make "marine" like wreath.
Kupila sam bež svječice i ukrasni konopac,
pronašla slamnati vijenac i postolja za svijeće.
I bought 4 beige candles and decorative rope,
find my straw form and candles' holders.
Prošetala se oko kuće i nabrala tri vrste smrike,
odnosno obične borovice, kadulju, maslinove grančice
i grančice magunje, odnosno planike.
Za one koji ne znaju što je to magunja (planika):
zimzeleni mediteranski grm ili manje drvo,
ima crvene hrapave plodove koje zovemo magunje
od kojih se može raditi marmelada ili rakija, npr.
I took a walk around my house and cut some olive tree brenches,
some sage, hree different kinds of Common Juniper
and some Strawberry tree brenches.
Arbutus unedo (strawberry tree, occasionally cane apple)
is an evergreen shrub or small tree, native to the Mediterranean region.
In October it has red berries that we use for  mermelade
and brandy production.
 Grančice sam uvukla u slamu.
I put all of those brenches into straw form.
 Dodala sam svječice i mašne od konopca.
Then I put candles and rope bows.
 I dodala neke morske stvari;
And put some "marine" stuff;
 kućice od morskog ježa,
sea urchin,
 morske zvijezde, jednog volka (rplja, kažemo mi)
starfish and a winkle,
 školjke - to su kućice (po našu - kunjke)...
 some shells...
 Morski adventski vjenčić na moru.
Šteta što nije bio ljepši dan, ovako, bez sunca, sve izgleda sivo.

I am so sorry that this day wasn't brighter,
everything looks so grey now.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Advent wreath has 4 candles that symbolise 4 sundays prior to Christmas. Tommorow is first Advent Sunday and we will light up first candle during dinner. Next sunday, it is time for two candles to light, then three and the last sunday before Christmas, four candles will light.
In my house, it is family tradition that the youngest of the family puts out the candles, but not by blowing, but with wine-dipped piece of bread.
That is something that my grandmother thought me when I was a child.

  2. Prelep je. Obožavam venčiće ali nisam majstor za njih. Istina, nisam se dovoljno ni trudila da savladam veštinu poput te ili pravljenja ikebane, a volela bih to da znam.
    No, zima je duga, pa ako budem imala dovoljno želje, potrudiću se.
    Nismo svi rođeni za sve, ali kad vidim drue radove, tako dobijem želju da napravim nešto slično.

  4. Me too, I have never seen such a beautiful and creative wreath! I can understand your pain with the grey weather (here we had 3 weeks non-stop of heavy grey dark clouds) but even so the wonderful colors of deep green and silver green and ultramarine+green and the different shapes of the leaves are... amazing!
