Endurance: Weekly Photo Challenge

art, chateau fontainebleau WPCEndurance2

Sometimes I wonder how much really has changed for women. It seems that our lot is just to endure whatever men and powers to be throw at us. It has always been this way and will be so for the unforeseeable future unless we actually start doing something about it.

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘Endurance‘. Rest of the interpretations can be found HERE. My earlier challenge entries are HERE.

Adventure in the Olden Days

Do you know what this place is? I’m going to give you a hint. It’s in France.

It’s the library in the Chateau Fontainebleau.

Can you imagine the kings and aristocrats planning their worldly explorations in here? Having audiences for the brave people who wanted to find new worlds? True, now we know that those discoveries turned into genocides but the stories of adventure still tempt us.

Adventure is this week’s theme in Weekly Photo Challenge. The rest of the interpretations can be found HERE. If you are interested in my other challenge photos, they are HERE.

Doggie Dialogue

This summer I visited Paris. Again. One day I was on a walk with my friend and we walked past a florist shop in a fancy ass neighbourhood. At first I thought nothing of it but then I saw these two little cuties:

Two doggies in Paris

I called them in Finnish and they seemed to understand. The owner, however didn’t appreciate it and called them back inside. Our dialogue was cut short but at least I got this cute photo. This is my entry for this week’s photo challenge ‘Dialogue‘. If you are interested, the other interpretations can be found HERE. All my entries, past and present, for the WordPress Photo Challenge are HERE.

Pinteresting vol.XXVII

Pinteresting by Thrifty Finn

So how’s the autumn coming up in your neck of woods? Over here it’s raining, raining, raining, and one more time, raining. Mixed with thunder and bouts of sunshine. Just the right mix of all the possible weathers to make sure you are always inappropriately dressed when you leave the house.

Of course, I don’t ever leave the house but that’s not the point here. If I did, I would be and that’s what aggravates me. But I digress.

Did I use the phrase ‘I digress’ correctly?

I digressed again.

Anyhoo, this past week I’ve been pinning like a Crazy Pin Lady and here are some of my favourites. As per usual, you can get to the original source by clicking the image.

Christina Ricci. I’ve been fan of her since Addams Family and was gutted that Pan Am was cancelled. Her character in it was great. She’s a quirky, doe-eyed beauty with a lovely dark edge. From the board Beautiful People.

Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Don’t stop. A wonderful series of motivational posters. From the board Graphics & Illustrations.

There used to be a time I hoarded every font that I liked even a little on my hard drive. These days I’ve gotten much better at controlling myself but I’ve lately felt a little bored with my current collection of fonts. I think it’s time to add some more. From the board Font Book.

Harrison Ford, Blade Runner, Stephen Vaughan

Harrison Ford. Just because sometimes you need to feel all hot and bothered. This photo was taken at the filming of Blade Runner by Steven Vaughan in 1981. Oh how beautiful he was. From my board Beautiful People.

Have you been pinning lately? Do you have any good boards to follow? Leave a link in the comment section and I’ll come and have a look :)

P.S. How could I not post one doggy picture? They be derping so hard! From the board I Want a Doggy & Other Cute Animals. A mouthful, eh?

Fray: Weekly Photo Challenge

sneakers, levi's, style

These are my lovely sneakers. I bought them from a friend who had bought them from New York. They have a nice, thick sole. The fabric is strong canvas and they have the right balance between the masculine and the feminine. I really do love these shoes.

Then one day I decided to leave them in the basement when I got home because I didn’t want to drag dirt through the building. The same day that my neighbour/landlord left their dog there because the dog needed a cool space to recover from a heat stroke.

Oh how he recovered. Very well indeed:
