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. :)


Little mushrooms.


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. :)


The end! ;)

Thank you!


Thrifty Sunday

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.

Flea market finds

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?


I'm back...

Hello, my dearies,

I am finally back to blogging and I have some good news - after almost a year my workroom is almost ready, I just moved in couple of days ago and I'm already back to beading. 

Here is a little fun brooch that I made just yesterday. :)

And here is another thing that I'm currently working on. Do you recognize the beautiful painting by my very talented friend Nancy? ;)

I hope I can dedicate more time for my beading from now on. And I finally have a real place for it. Yay! 

I am not going to show you much of my new room quite yet, as many things still need to be finalized, but I will show you a little corner of my beading table just for a little taste. :)

What do you think about my crazy wallpaper? :D I decided to make it really bright and fun, but still stick to some classic shapes. Love-love-love those funky tulips! 

More photos coming soon!

Oh, I missed you all so much!

We had fun holiday. The weather was beautiful and we spent most of the time outside gardening, cleaning the yard and playing with dogs. Here are some pictures of our fluffy friends. :)

Big one...

Do you see two dogs in this picture? :))


Did you enjoy your weekend/holiday, too? ;)


My Creative Space

There is still renovation going on in my workroom, but I think I can see the end. :) I just need to pick the paint color for the walls, put the wallpaper up, paint the window, put in the floor (my hubby will do that one) and then it's ready for furniture, decorating and organizing. Yay!

Just look at my new door and pretty wooden ceiling! Very happy right now! :)

Have a great rest of the week!


Spring in Finland

This is what I saw in the morning from our bedroom window.

Looks like spring has been canceled in Finland.

I hope it's much warmer at your place!


Flea Market Finds

I went to a flea market today and got some nice treasures.

Bag of fabric scraps, silver plate, tiny stone box, handmade fabric storage bin and jar of buttons. Lots and lots of buttons. :)

Very happy about my finds. :)

My Creative Space

Getting a bit more organized around here.

The blue vintage knitting needle tube is from my grandma's craft basket and floral organizer set I bought from Fabricka. Now all my knitting needles and crochet hooks are in perfect order.

Other creative spaces you can find here.

Have a happy and organized Thursday! ;)

Love you all!


Flea Market Finds

I've had some great finds this week. Take a look at my new treasures.

My Flea Market finds this week include:
  • beautiful porcelain cake tray that I'm going to use as jewelry display;
  • black wire napkin holder (maybe I'll paint it white, but haven't decided yet);
  • Muurla vase (I have bigger one just like that, so now I have a set). Yay! :)
I also bought some pretty cool items for my dolls, you can see them at my other blog - My Doll Cabinet.

And a bonus photo - it's not easy to take pictures with dogs in the house. :D

Other beautiful finds at Her Library Adventures.

See you next week! ;)
