Ok. Please sit down. I have something I want to tell you. I think you already know, but I want you to hear it from me.
I'm buying a house. Yes. I have finally, finally, finally, found a house I like and that suits my needs and my budget.
Hence the looooong silence.
Time to soon start packing. Again! Still,there are matters such as drain, water and electricity that needs to be taken care of first;) Little faun shall play his horn in a new location later in the spring.

Had a very lovely weekend.
Yesterday I made lots and lots of pottery tiles. I became a factory;) Worked for eight hours almost non stop, with only a short lunch brake. Now I need to wait another two weeks for the tiles to dry and then burn them and then it's time to glaze them. I shall show you results later.
Today I took a long walk in the cold and beautiful weather. Then I attended a fun event, an exhibition with a talkshow. The guest at the talkshow was the artist, Jasmin Anoschkin, and in between the interview some of the favorite songs were performed by two musicians. It was a warm and intimate event.
Now I wish you a lovely new week. I'm off to Italy in a few days, so Ciao until the end of month!

I've never had a christmastree before, but this year I got one. A small tree. Previously I've had large branches in a large bowl.
I've decorated it with dried berries, tinstars (I made these from old tins, you can check out how to here, it's in swedish but there's pics so you will be able to make them even without the knowledge of swedish) crochet snowflakes (from Lundagård), red onions and on top I placed a votive heart.
I do enjoy this season. Hope you do too. I found this today, a lovely version and for me new lyrics.
Take care lovely friends!

Today the saddest of news reached us, one of the most beautiful and most brave souls has passed away. With love and with honor will we remember Nelson Mandela. His memory and legacy will live on. In us all. It was an unexpected flood of tears I experienced when I read all the beautiful words my friends had posted on facebook.
Today is Finland's Independence day.
Above is a picture of my plant I hung yesterday. I have no idea what it's called in english, and yesterday I had no clue what it was called in my own languages. But thanks to facebook I now know it is Kultaköynnös is finnish and Gullranka in swedish.

Dear friends, time has flown again. It is already december!
We've only had a little snow here, for the past few days. The sea is still open, only by the shore you could spot the ice taking form.
I've just been out for a lovely run. Had a shower and then had dinner.I seem to have a thing for almonds, roasted almonds. I add roasted almonds to almost any dish...hih!
Stay warm dear friends. I have been listening to this. It is not a new song, but for some reason I have now got this song on my skin. Mando Diao is more famous for singing in english, and also for a rather different gendre than this song. But I love this. Poem by Gustaf Fröding.

We've had a very mild autumn. No sign of snow. Yet.
Running, watergym, yoga, choir and obviously work, keeps me busy. And add to that, visits to the capital, visits to the theatre, a few gigs, exhibitions and spending time with friends. A very good life indeed. And I have no need nor interest to spend too much of it online;)
Above is my darling Muru on a new rug. She enjoys it very much.
Keep warm friends.

...is very good. I am happy where I'm at, what I'm doing and whom I get to share my everyday with.
Trying to sort out things to keep. Not sure about the tiny, hih, flowercolumn...it's of russian origin. I find it beautiful, just not an easy piece unless you have a palace. And by now you all go OMG, we thought she lived in a palace. Or at least, she has given the impression the cottage is of palace dimensions... I could always use it as a bar. To just hang by when I'm home. Where are you? Oh I'm just hanging in the bar...or then I could paint it a colour more suitable for the surroundings. Huuuuge dilemma. Huge!
And now, hold on to your hats. Guess what I did yesterday? I bodyboarded!!!! If you have never heard of it, here's a video. It was lots of fun. And one has found a few previosly un-noticed muscles.
Have a great Halloween!
