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.
Spring, spring, springety, spring! The weather has been amazing over here. Well, not today, today is miserable and cold but in general the summer is definitely on its way. Not a moment too soon. We need sunshine and picnics and other summery things!
As per usual, I’ve been pinning away and here are some of latest pins:
I thought the Tom of Finland-stamps were cool but now Finnish post office was outdone by the crafty community. Australian based company Pearler designed this kit in collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation.

Different kind of fierce but fierce nonetheless. The blues, the bling and the flamingo. And talking about birds…
The fabulousness continues…DIY boudoir chair. (I refuse to use the s-word as in my mind it begs the continuation word ‘sample’).
I love the sentiment but more importantly, it came from a board ‘Your Sassy Gay Friend‘ by Pinterest-user Brad Jacobsen. I guess the first pin influenced all my pin choices today ;) Here’s one more rainbow for the road:
Did I get excited about this week’s theme or did I get excited? I’m a font hoarder extra-ordinaire. I even have a Font Book-titled Pinterest board. Do I use all the fonts? No, I just like to have them.
So what is my approach to the theme? How about some words I spotted at last year’s Rovaniemi Old Market Square Fair?
Now I wish I could hear you peeps trying to say that :D If you are interested, you can find more photos and interpretations HERE.
