November! Sounds Like Holidays and Gifts!

November is a special month

It is autumn officially, but here on the west cost of the Black Sea we still expect some warm summer days. Usually they get as warm as making a short sleeve absolutely appropriate and thus illustrate the Indian summer idea - summer amid autumn.I have not given up on this. Despite the early show we had last week.

Apart from all the natural magic - the colourful tree's foliage, the vivid blues of the sea and all the domesticity treats autumn brings, there is more.

It is the holiday season start and holiday shopping season now

The moment you have to start shopping finally and get all these gifts you found year long or quickly come with all the choosing and buying all at once because holiday time is in about one month has come. Then comes decoration and gift-wrapping, and apparel planning and cuisine time fun... and holidays feel like a carousel - beautiful, interesting and exhausting. We end feeling like this more or less - excitement, fun and some exhaustion too. I am at the brought-some-Christmas-flowres-home stage now. They have not yet bloomed.

I remember, I once had to have it all ready by Nov 1st and I did it. It felt such a different holiday season. I can't do this for me now, nor I can help you do it yourself in any way now as we all a week after this day. What I can do is help you shop gifts, especially lingerie gifts.

Make someone happy with bespoke lingerie made just for them

It does not matter if is a friend, a relative, or yourself!, you will get the lingerie gift-wrapped. It will be made to measures, especially for this person and as it is magic time - you will pay just half of its price! This means buying one for you and one for your best friend and paying just one. Yay!

It actually does matter, isn't it? In every detail, with every well-being wish, with all the comfort and self-esteem details you can give in a holiday season.

So do it! Enjoy the sale and make this holiday season a happy, supportive holiday for you and your loved ones.
And handwrite these gift tags yourself if you choose to give bonboneva handmade lingerie. Or write your name on the gift your choose for yourself. You deserve it! And you loved ones deserve it too!

Or just cut and make a gift tag yourself, then write something special and make it a present itself as we can rarely buy presents for all the people we would love to. However good wish and friendly heart are priceless! Happy pre-holiday month!

Flower Power on a Lingerie Set - for the Love of Flowers, Colours and Lace!

This summer is bringing me back to last summer memories and this beautiful set. It is a unusually cold summer - so green and fresh, and rainy... the red flower extravaganza pops in my mind as a memory of something from the past, while still something, I like on a gloomy day.

Back on the Blog! Back to "Normal" life?

a typical spring table - tulips, lingerie packages and garden plannings extravaganza

Here is how this April looked a year after the last post. It seems this blog /and some major activities in my life/ have spent over a year in an on-and-off mode. April was actually the month which kind of started the recovery process for me. And my mom's tulips and David Asutin roses catalogues, plus my lovely customers orders helped a lot.

It is mid-July /or almost late actually. and I hope this stage is finally finished and "normal" life is back here again.

I am waiting the most gorgeous royal blue satin to air dry and I will start making a new style knickers with it, my garden is covered with colours and I have not been to the beach yet... This feels like a normal mid-July to me!

PS I live approximately 7km away from the sea and got used to admiring it from my balcony and postponing going to the beach for an amazingly vast array of reasons.

Skiping months and flipping lace samples...

Skipping lots and loads of news and insights here is what is on my table now - lace!
I will be back with news and almost a year of pictures soon. I now have to say good buy to a cold and get back to sewing. So here are my little joys on lace form for the week!

Spring brought new lace samples and new projects for the newest laces here. And what a better way to get back to lingerie than lace!

So here is a glimpse and details follow!

Waking the blog up!

Bonboneva Jewel Bikini Style Knickers
Hello! I am not quite sure anyone missed the blog after such a long break. It basically disappeared.
It wasn't an intentional break actually, but absolutely natural one. So many things happened in the last seven months, it feels like a year since I last post in late January.

To mention a few of the things that took place, a big moving of the studio plus completely reorganizing it, great reorganization of my work routine too, a well-deserved and still on-going shift to a bit calmer schedule, a short run-away to a colorful place I never though I will visit soon, and sewing many of these beauties shown above - the Jewel Bikini Style Knickers. Well, these are just some of the new things and I do enjoy each of them!

However I miss the blog, and the way it gives thought and plans a calmer and straight-forward manner. Well, I know this isn't obvious, but it works for me. I will dwell on organization/plans part in a separate post soon. I hope, I will manage to come back to the blog, and the newsletter!, in a consistent manner this autumn. Meanwhile, welcome to Instagram where I share daily bits form time to time. Being the quickest of all communication means, I use, Instagram become my favourite single media this summer.

Happy New Year!

It's high time I wished you a happy new year on the blog!
Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best in 2017!

It started with fireworks right in front our windows and its first minutes looked amazing!

New Year fireworks 2017

I have to admit, I promised myself I will be a good blogger in 2017 and not miss a week. I had to miss a few though. It was the coolest January in 50 years here. So definitely the coldest I have seen. This changed some things here for me. We rarely had a whole week of show in the last couple of years and hardly four weeks in total in the last five winters as far as I can remember. Well, we had a snowy January this year! We had roads closed and my city - Varna - was hard to reach for a week. Train was the only transport reaching it. I had to ship some orders later as Posts were not able to transport any mail and walk to buy everything /including new fabrics/ as I was not able to drive for a week /and park the car for another two weeks/. So unexpectedly the ice outside changed daily routines and tasks a lot and made me spend more time on thing I usually do much faster. It hasn't snowed for a few weeks now and still the fields are all white, as seen last weekend:

On a brighter side, the shop got new additions and I do love them a lot too. I was working on some pieces for months and finally finished, or almost finished them this January. New projects are on their way and February promises more news, which is absolutely exciting! These deep blue hipsters are one of the lingerie pieces in the shop - cotton and simple lines, a combination I love:

To make things even better, Valentine's sale is in the shop! It will save you 25% on most lingerie pieces and this includes sets too! It will be in the shop for a week now. Please note it is a bit too late to get your orders by Valentines now if you are outside Europe and maybe a bit risky if you are in Europe. Still more lingerie is always fun, so I decided to keep the sale going.

I will be back here with more details on January projects in February.
