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.

Work of Art: Weekly Photo Challenge

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring!

I feel that we should be already posting about summer themed photos. I can’t remember the last time Finland was this green THIS early in the May. Anyhoo, I went thrifting today and on my way home I spotted this pink tree. I don’t know its name so I’m just going to call it Thrifty Finnimus Amorus:

Today’s weather was very freaky. There was sunshine, there were clouds and then there were hails and soon after sunshine again. Unfortunately the sun was gone by the time I got home, so I decided to run these images through some Instagram-filters to put some sun in the pics:

Lovely. Me thinks. If you are interested, you can find more interpretations HERE.

Cinq Natures Mortes

Few days ago, my cousin did that annoying Facebook thing and challenged me to do five pictures in five days. I obliged (after some whining) and here they are:

espoo, yellow flower, dandelion, nature, Finland

Dandelion. Well, I presume it’s dandelion. Help me out here. Is it? It’s a coltsfoot.

indiska, cushions, pillows, home decor, coral

Two new, lovely cushions. I bought them last weekend to reward myself for sticking with Treatless April. I have a plan for my bedroom and these go with it perfectly. And you know what the best part is? These were on sale and then there was another 50% off! Ooh, how I love a good bargain.

paint job, DIY

Remember when I said I was planning to paint my red mirror frame white? Well, as you can see from my stellar handiwork, I should have spraypainted the frame. I have to sand it and re-paint it. Although, my friend said that he was going to say that it looks really good because he thought I had tried out some new plastering style. Apparently no one would have known it was an accidental paint job.

selfie, Thrifty Finn

Well, not a nature morte but I do have a quite horrified facial expression. I was actually dead tired when I tried to take a selfie and the result was ten images with my eyes closed in them. Then I decided it’s better to try to force them open, hence the frozen facial expression. Well, I guess it is a nature morte after all.

window

Finally the last image. I got home and remembered that I still had one more picture to take and I was too tired (again) to think of anything clever so I snapped a photo of my window. This picture doesn’t do justice to my bedroom/study. Even as I type, it’s flooded with sunlight and I love it. And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take a nap on that sunny spot on my bed.
