Hi guys! I haven't been around much lately, so I just wanted to write a quick message to all my friends in the blogger world. I hope you still remember me. :))
First of all, I would like to wish you a very happy New Year! May all your lovely dreams and plans come true! I would love to hear from you! What's new in your creative lives? Come, share some good news with me, I really need them. ;)
For past several months I've been going through some rough times in my personal life. Dealing with a loss of someone is never easy, especially if you have never actually given a chance to get to know them. It's been hard, but I'm trying to get myself together.
So, as you might have already noticed, I've decided to have a fresh start. I've arranged my workroom, given the blog a new look, scheduled an appointment with a hairdresser and finally made peace with myself. Time cures everything. I just need to give time time.
Hope you'll stick with me. The content of my bog might be a bit different from now on, as I still don't have much inspiration for beading. But I promise to share with you all the fun and useful things that I come across.
Today we had a really nice time in the forest. I think Finnish forests are ones of the most beautiful I've ever seen - so fresh and untouched. We collected a lot of mushrooms (I made yummy sauce in the evening) and drained our dog. :D He's at that age now, when any amount of exercise just isn't enough. :))
I'd like to share with you some pictures from today.
Fairy forest. :)
A lot of trees.
And the dog, really enjoying himself.
A giant mushroom, almost like from Alice in Wonderland. :)
And a little one again. :)
Some really weird mushrooms.
And moss monster. :))
Here dog got a little tired and decided to rest.
And here he is looking for the way back to the car. :)
I just had the most amazing trip to my favorite thrift shop (actually, two of them). :)) I was lucky to spot some amazing things for my new workroom and also couple of little knick-knacks for my dollies.
Allow me to introduce you to my new love - vintage handpainted sewing box from 1943.
I love-love-love all the amazing details. I think this is the best find of the year.
I also got some nice wooden trays from old jewelry store, postcards, little beach chair for my dollies and two mini metal candlesticks.
And here are the trays in action. I will use them to store my stone collection.
Have you recently found anything cool at the flea market?
