Yes, she smiled and the sun appeared at last! I hope it will melt the snow and let the spring come! Who is Baba Marta? Have a look here .
There's a mess of red and white threads, beads, yarn and scissors at home! My husband and son made a lot of martenitzi for relatives and friends. These bracelets are for me...
They inspired me and I decided to make some beauties for our home....
В събота нашата театрална група проведе работилничка за мартенички както през миналата година. Процесът беше дълъг, но интересен - за малки и големи!
On Saturday, just like last year, our theatre group held a workshop for making martenitzi. It was interesting and exciting for the children and their patents!
Here are the results! I'm always in awe of the imagination and the natural sense for beauty Bulgarians have!
This morning I played the role of Baba Marta in a performance for the kindergartens! Unfortunately we didn't take photos, but the excitement of the children was huge, they sang songs especially for me and were thrilled and happy to touch me! What a feast we had!
Here are some details of my costume! I hope you'll like them!
Be healthy and happy, with red cheeks and a hunch for a marvellous spring!
