Marche des Fiertés, Pride Paris. Hundreds of thousands of people marching for love and equality. What’s not to love? I wrote about the march at a Finnish blog called Tämän Kylän Homopoika and you can read it HERE (if you can read Finnish that is). There are also some more photos if you are interested.

Summer Lovin': Weekly Photo Challenge

If you wonder where I’ve been, I was in Paris. Where I found these lovely flip-flops. The beginning of summer was supercold here in Finland. Not anymore. Temperatures knock on 30 degrees celsius. Even in Lapland. Not complaining though, not too soon the weather will be miserable.

My Friend Is a Foodie

I think I’ve mentioned my friend Niko one time or another over here. Our conversations usually involve fashion, men and food. That’s it. I try to be his political conscience but his eyes glaze over if I try to explain something more complex to him.

Yeah, I love you too ;D

Anyhoo, couple of weeks ago on my last thrifting trip I called him ex-tempore if I could drop over since I was quite close to him. Well, I called before I left and he said no but then a styling job thingy he was supposed to do got cancelled so I was again welcome.

After our usual banter of insulting each other in various ways, Niko brought forth the best of himself and FED ME! He really is the hostess with the mostest.

There’s a point to this story. Niko is getting a new grill this year and we are already planning an All-Day Grill Fest. One day of just eating, drinking and being merry!

I’m submitting this to this week’s photo challenge because I think this portion is work of art. Maybe I should start putting some effort in my cooking? Just a thought.

Work of Art: Weekly Photo Challenge

french, chair, chateau fontainebleau WPCWorkofArt2

Art is not the only thing that can be art. These chair frames are an art by themselves. These ones can be found at the Chateau Fontainebleau near Paris. Neat tip: If you take the bus from the Fontainebleau-Avon train station, the Paris metro tickets are valid for the bus. 

If you are interested, more Works of Art can be found HERE. Personally I’m keen to seeing pictures from museums all over the world.

Some frames I may or may not use for framing my favourite vintage fabrics, some more :D vintage fabric, and yet another silkscreen. The dark fabric is yardage, there’s about 6-7 meters of it. The mustard coloured fabric is a pair of curtains. I paid about 25€ for all of these.
