The Hamster on my Head

The Hamster on my Head

You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’? George Bernard Shaw Let’s draw selfies! Much more fun and original than taking them with your cell phone! Working on new journal with brown paper bags inside, but also in this one darling journal. There is […]

Eye Candy | big puppy love

Eye Candy | big puppy love

This is Giza, one of the Broholmer puppies that I visited last summer. She is still a puppy in some ways, but also a big dog. I love big happy dogs, whipping tail, drooling smile and all! Naaah! She doesn’t drool. But her tail is lethal when she is excited. I wish I could’ve kept […]

Spotted Photo Theme: Animal Love

Spotted Photo Theme: Animal Love

Cuteness alert! Puppies, cats, monkey kisses, and other adorable critters ahead! Like I mentioned earlier it’s time for a look at the themes that occur in our everyday photographs. I spot cute animals in many of the photos I’ve taken through the years, so for August I’m featuring a few of those here. Theme: Animal […]

A Grey Cat comes to visit and I get someone to talk to

I’m at my parents house, visiting. They’ve given away the budgie Raffe and the rabbit Tsatziki, so when I first came home the house kind of felt “empty”. I always talk to the animals, and notice them. I’m just that kind of person. I talk to birds when I bike, and stop to talk to […]

Valborg in the countryside

Valborg in the countryside

I’ve been sewing this weekend (pictures will come soon). And yesterday it was Valborgsmässoafton, a day when we celebrate that spring is coming to us here in the north. Finally. Valborg is always on the last day of April, to welcome May. We went to our friends beautiful house in the countryside and barbequed. Mmm! […]

Easter feelings

Easter feelings

As promised, some Easter Feeling photos today! Part of my breakfast on Easter Day: Mom thrifted new candle holders last weekend and I got candy and a present (new bag!). In Sweden we don’t have Easter Bunnies or chickens who come visit us and bring us egg. Instead the children dresses up like Easter Witches […]

A is for April Snow

A is for April Snow

APRIL is the cruelest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. Winter kept us warm, covering Earth in forgetful snow, feeding A little life with dried tubers. T.S. Eliot I adore this poem by TS Eliot. Adore it. It’s been snowing for days. I’ve […]

Cheeky but cute

Cheeky but cute

My friend Ellinor has started a kind of craft club, so this week we’ve had fika and a general craft night together. The only one not crafting, but asking for lots of attention, was the dog, Haddock. He licked my arm, whined and jumped around when ever I talked to him. Cheeky but cute. I […]
