Walking home

Yellow and red leaves everywhere! The air is really cold now, this morning we had to scrape frost from Rasmus car windows.

A movie

Anyone seen the movie Mister Lonely?
I just saw it a couple of days ago and I loved it! The movie came out in 2007 and I can't believe i missed it.
Seems like it got quite hard critics though, some people hated it. I admit that it was a bit weird sometimes but in a fascinating way. And very, very beautiful.
I recommend it to anyone who haven't seen it!

A party

On Friday we went to our friend, artist Ulrika Ferms birthdayparty which was held in a flat in an old soapfactory. The flat belongs to Platform gallery and is a space for Artists In Recidence. It's a huge and lovely place, one big room. I wish I could live like that one day!
Besides that, the soapfactry now contains several studios for artists.
(btw. I don't know if these soaps have any connection with the factory, but perhaps)

Finally, the party was great, good food and good mood:)

The entrance

Old typewriters and such in the hallway.

Today: working and eating on the floor.
Why can it sometimes be so hard to work (in my case, paint) for somebody when you're free to do whatever you want? That should be easy peasy but not for me, since I don't know these people.
I feel like it would have been easier if they had given me a theme to go after.
Tomorrow I'm going to send in some sketches and wait for their answer, wish me luck please:)


Found this at The function key, Alphabunnies-poster designed by Malika Favre.
Pretty cute, I want it! (press the picture for a bigger view)

Thank you very much:)

The third and last little post for today.
Here are some lovely soaps which are handmade here in Vasa. Sea buckthorn, tar, lingonberry and apple. They smell so good and old-fashioned. The tar-soap reminds me of my great grandparents, they always had one which made the bathroom smell of tar:)

Have a good week everyone!


The season is definitely over for this little waterpark in my town. I find it quite inspiring when it is deserted like this.
Right now it's so cold outside, yesterday evening I had to wear my winterjacket and still I was freezing! Brrr!


The weekend passed so fast, it's already Sunday!
I won't have much time for blogging this following week, I've got so much to do! Therefore I'll just post some more today:)

Eva Eun-Sil Han, I like!

Colour map

Today I've been making these, which are finally going to be a big colour map for oil colours. It will take some time to fill them with paint!

Now I'm drinking my green tea and wondering about the fake big bang experiment that the Cern-scientists started today, it is all kind of surreal to me so I don't know what to think of it.
Do you think it could transform the whole world into a black hole? Hmmm...it's weird.

Yesterday we went to my familys summercottage which was quite relaxing. And cold too! There's no electricity, only a fireplace and candles. In the evening it got very dark and I actually got a bit scared to go outside! I sat inside doing crosswords while Rasmus was outside doing a timelapse of the stars:)

What's on my wall

I was tagged by Sasha to show what's on my wall! So here it is, some of it:) I think it's fun to see what others have on their walls too, so I'm tagging Lisen, Alice and Sandra.

A closeup of my old beloved commode which we painted turquoise. It used to belong to my great grandmothers sister and has been white and light yellow before. I think it will be seen in at least one other colour.


I'm going to school and work for two days and will not be at home = no blogging!
See you on Thursday:)


Today is my last day off! Tomorrow I start working two evenings a week again plus I'll soon start to do a part of my practical training.
The sun is shining for once so I will quick do the things I need to do at home and then bike to town, enjoy the sun and meet my cousin who is here for a few days!
