FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE week 41 - a gratitude list

New shoes and pretty autumnal colours

On my way home from work, the view can be breathtaking! 

the big Tribal Fusion gig is approaching.
The outfit is only partly finished.

Sewing, sewing, sewing,


FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE week 40 - a gratitude list

Me and Tea, our association's president, collecting food for homeless animals.

Mt T. and I went to see this exhibition of surrealist postcards from the early 20th century.
They had these "tinttamareski" (I don't know how they're called in english) things there
and of course we had to have a go :)

A necklace I'm making.  Beading makes me so happy.


the ticking of the Kit Cat clock, the scent of coffee and the playful look in the kitten's eyes,

FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE week 39 - a gratitude list

We attended four workshops by Manca Pavli (Slovenia) in Turku. Wow, she really did kick our asses, in a very positive and constructive way. So much new information, new revelations, and pretty sore muscles, just how I like it! We also performed at What the Fu****!? show there with my flapper sister Ane.

The clicking of zils, sparkling beads and sore muscles,

FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE week 38 - a gratitude list

Roope, Hexi and Tittis doing their thing

Engaged for six months <3
We celebrated with pizza and red wine.

My second attempt with tempeh, it turned out pretty well again, though I'm still trying to get used to the texture.
Tempeh, mashed sweet potato, button sprouts, marinated garlick cloves, beets in vinegar, sweet chili sauce and garlic sauce.
Vegan, healthy and yummy!

We visited Mom's grave on Mabon/ Autumn Equinox

Notebooks, new pens, scribble, scribble, scribble,


FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE - week 37 a gratitude list

(these are SO late, I'm sorry for all who've been wondering where I am. I've been in the busy-land again)

This week was all about rehearsing for an upcoming Tribal Fusion show, making beadwork and arranging a happening with our Animal Welfare Association where about 20 cats were neutered and got microchips.

Dancing, dancing, dancing

I'm making headdresses for a Tribal Fusion show

Two kitties asleep, waiting to be neutered.
Cats sleep with their eyes open when they're sedated, it looks freaky

Dark chocolate kisses,
