{mustaa ja valkoista}

I bought a photo album for my Project life pages. Black cloth. I added a Marimekko Focus print on the front.
So many circles. I'm in heaven! :)

Finished another page for the album. I love the 6 x 6" pages.

Siis voi että miten paljon tykkään Finglishistä. Niin hauskaa. :)

We've had +10C days lately. Snow has been melting. Sun is shining, which is pretty typical* for where I live on most days. I'm sure we'll still get some cold & snowy days but I can't help but feel like Spring is just around the corner. So this morning I made some butterflies for our wall.

Talvinen temppelikuva odottaa edelleen vaihtamista. Liian kylmä kuva mutta kun sain sen anopilta lahjaksi... Mutta aion silti vaihtaa sen! Kunhan muistan ja jaksan tsempata. :)

*Last September we had ONE rainy day, for example. It was mainly sunny.

 Lately I've been browsing houses that are on sale. There's a great website where you can see the houses that are on sale in any area of the city. Pictures of the inside & outside. As I was browsing the houses, I couldn't help but get a bit bummed out. The houses here are so not my style. Everything is traditional. I didn't find one minimalist, modern house. :(
So I spent some time browsing Scandinavian blogs and dreaming of a house/home like that. Needless to say I've been having black and white on my mind a lot.
I don't know if I could ever have bright white walls again. I do crave for color in my life. For warmness since the winters here are usually cold and long. But if you asked me right now, I'd paint everything black or white. :)
Then I'd add some deep purple or olive green or warm smokey gray or wood to the mix. Silver too.
I could do a lot with our current house, of course. But for some rotten reason, I'm just not a renovator type of person. Wish I was.

Cute, tiny summer cottage. :) Would make a fun art studio as well.

Haluan mustan himmelin!

    Ihania nuo kotikuvat. Millon aloitat himmelin tekemisen? Mustia pillejä vaan ostamaan.

  2. jep, jep. :) pitää muistaa aina välillä säilyttää hauskoja keskusteluja. pitää patistaa jay tekemään musta himmeli. jay teki aikoinaan tavallisen himmelin (se on jayn vanhemmilla nykyään). ensin pitää löytää niitä mustia pillejä...


Thank you for taking the time to comment! :)
