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.
P.S. If you are interested, the rest of the interpretations to this week’s theme can be found HERE and my second Summer Lovin’ photo is HERE.
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.
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.
On the move. Barely. My recovery from my second surgery in December has been really slow and I wasn’t able to start working out until now in May. I swear, my first exercise day was brutal. I walked out of the gym seeing things double. After yesterday’s leg day, I took the bus home so that I wouldn’t have had to walk the stairs to the train platform, even though I had to wait longer for the bus. (I also wore my short workingout pants and people kept staring at my hairy legs). Sexy lay-dee, I am.
Anyhoo, I’m on the move again, how about you? If you are interested, you can find more fascinating interpretations of this week’s theme HERE.
P.S. Those crumbs on the left are croissant crumbs.
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.
