Black cloud

The person I am dating is going through a rather dirty divorce. His ex has made it public on the internet, on facebook and through her blog. Now she has even taken me as her target. She has violated my privacy. She has published my name and linked to my blog through her facebook page (which is public, one needs not be her friend to see her posts!) and her blog. She constantly reports where we have been spotted together. Hence I had to close my own blog for a while due to the violation of my privacy. She claims it is her right to write about her divorce, about her sad feelings, as she also claims I do nothing else but post about my love affair and my happiness on the internet. Surely everyone has their right to write about themselves whatever they like, but once you start writing personal stuff about others, you're off limits. She is a professional journalist and now someone has reported her action. I wish her no harm but I can also wonder how a person in her position, can forget the rules of how to behave online. But obviously it is her choise to risk everything, not only her dignity, but her profession too.

First of all, my blog is by no means public, very few know my real identity. Secondly, I have a life to lead, not much time to spend on the internet.

My posts will occur as often (read seldom) as before. But with the difference, I might have to close my Temps Perdu -account and invite you all to become readers elsewhere.

Life is otherwise beautiful and good. I have a lovely house that I am renovating. I love my sweet darling  Muru-cat. I'm on holiday from work, looking forward to starting work within a month. I have the most wonderful friends. I have a wonderful family. I am dating a beautiful person and I am happy. I am doing a lot of running, signed up for a running-school and I am telling you, though I really love and enjoy running, in this heat it is a challenge. But I am very proud I have managed to fulfill all the running miles up until now. And I am not going to let some summer heat stop me;)

The image above is a textile work by my friend. It is missing a frame, but I am currently keeping my eyes open for it in the fleamarkets, I think a vintage golden frame would look great.

Enjoy summer friends!

Happiness... a (borrowed) rowingboat in the reeds. I had planned to buy a cheap rowingboat and had already contacted a seller online, but whilst waiting for a reply sent a rowingboat-request on facebook, and as it happens a friend of mine had a rowingboat in their garden;) So we made a deal that I organize an official place at the harbour for it, and her and her family can use it when they feel like taking a boat-trip. Excellent! As I often think we could share many more things, things we do not use I am well pleased. And this is a glassfibre boat that needs very little care, as I don't have plenty of sparetime on my hands.
Took a first little trip on the bay last night, we had a mild breeze and wonderful scenery.
Later we watched a game of football and whilst cykling home decided to stop and  enjoy a skinnydip in the sea with the most spectacular yellow moon just above the treetops. Summer at its best! Enjoy!

Summer is finally here

My vacation has started and I am taking it easy for a few days until I continue full time on the renovation.


Above is an old chair in my garden.

Monday evening

Sitting on my bed, listening to a mixture of birdsong, purring Muru and Nina Persson singing. The candlestick I purchased in Berlin on saturday during lunch. The lovely little restaurant had everything for sale, this candlestick was in use at my table;)

Slowly, slowly

In the middle of the renovation a home is also taking shape. I just love the colours in the rug, the painted wooden floor and the surface of my wardrobe that is made the same year this house is built, 1900.
I have been busy renovating and taking care of a job to pay it all off with;)

Slowly a change of season has also taken place. Winter has slowly given up on us and spring is finally here, we have green shades, warm winds from the bay and light! 

Tomorrow I'm off to Berlin for the weekend. 

Take care!

This is going to be a blind in my house. Just needs to be fitted.

I'm busy renovating. But managed to squeeze in a trip to Stockholm, to see a play and to meet friends. It was absolutely wonderful.

Take care and pardon my absence!

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.

...and yet another weekend ahead!

I wish you a wonderful weekend.
I'm soon off for a run and then sauna with some friends and then dinner with the same bunch! Life is good!

Fog with her

The fog was so thick one could hardly see more than a few meters ahead at times. Beautiful and strange. How the air felt. The sounds became more distant.

Saw Her tonight. Made me go very quiet. Woke many thoughts.

First some showeling of snow, then coffee and lit fire and lit candles and invite Ane Brun to sing in your cottage. Right now she sings Words.

Ah how I love sundays.

A little greeting from Italy!
I have been blinded by the sun. I have walked for hours on end, enjoying the narrow streets, the beautiful buildings, the alps, the air, the sounds and the tastes of wonderful lovely Italy <3 br="">

Sunday thoughts

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!

Happy New Year folks!

Shadows on the blind from my chandelier. It has been a very gray day this 1st of January 2014. So I pulled the blinds down and put on some nice Ray LaMontagne, light candles and a fire, sip on tea and enjoy the relaxed mood.

Happy New Year dear friends!

A tree!

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.

Life... 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,'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!

A change of season took place behind the window. Autumn turned into winter.

Oh Love

Spent saturday with friends, and attended Ane Brun's consert in the evening. Magical night.

Now I have her music on my skin and feel content. This is sooooo lovely. I cried when she performed it.

And an other happy note, I have a new computer. Jeeeee!
