The feeling of freedom and hapiness comes from the surrounding nature. Once more I thank the Universe for being born here, this place has so much to offer, to teach, to discover and to learn.

Волшебным образом мне удалось попасть на мастер-класс по обжигу керамики с загадочным названием «обжиг раку». На самом деле он состоялся еще в июне, но так как я почти сразу же уехала, то только сейчас решилась написать. Как говорится, самые настоящие воспоминания - те, которые помнятся по прошествии времени. Так как к керамическим горшкам я неравнодушна уже давно, достав пыльный обожженный горшок который я крутила еще будучи в университете, рванула на маршрутке в Листвянку. Начало мероприятия было запланировано на 11 часов утра в усадьбе Тюрюминых http://baikalsled.blogspot.ru/ . Это место само по себе загадочное и манящее. Здесь живут и трудятся увлеченные творческие люди: каюры, кузнецы, любители лошадей, а теперь еще и гончары.Мастер класс проводили мастера по керамике Татьяна Ерошенко и Сергей Пуртян http://vk.com/terraslon.

On the steep wall one may find petroglyphs - ancient rock drawings. When four hundred years ago, Cossack gangs invaded an unknown country and saw cave paintings, they decided that these were not just drawings, but letters left by its ancient inhabitants. That's why they called them "scribes" or "written stones." Indigenous people considered these rocks sacred places of their ancestors, drawings - works of spirits and surrounded them with
Krupenichka is a Slavic baby doll that attracts wealth and wealth to the house. Its main symbol is grain ("croupa" in Russian), which means a good harvest and profit. Krupenichka traditionally had no face, as well as other ritual dolls in Russia. Below you may find hand-crafted Russian Krupenichka-dolls made by me. Krupenichka is a doll with a special meaning. It was usually given for Christmas, Kolyada and holidays associated with the harvest. Such a doll was made of cloth, grain was stuffed into it, as a rule, wheat, buckwheat or several kinds of grain at once, so that the crop would be rich simultaneously for all kinds of grain. While making a doll, women read a prayer or sing songs. In Russia, porridge was very important, as it was mainly eaten, because porridge (any) has a lot of energy and is easily assimilated. Zernushka (or Krupenichka) is the main amulet in the family, she lures the house well-being and prosperity, and promises a good harvest a
