Not so very right, but…

One day you’re enjoying the Indian summer, the other day brings you the joys of winter. Well, we were in short sleeves about 3 weeks ago…

But recently it’s long sleeved ones on even indoors… More than that, we just had a chance to touch a real white snow. In October. in London. And I’m not shocked. Nevermind the negative sides of the snow so early, so unexpected, so uncommon here and so not right – you can’t help it, it’s beautiful, white on green…

I guess kids are the ones who are really honestly happy about the snow. You see little half melted snowmen everywhere and lots of beaming faces, snowballs flying and wet mittens drying later at home πŸ™‚

Something else to look at.

Happy Friday!

A new day

Yep. This is snow and I saw it this morning outside our windows…

I have nothing new to show, but other people have.

Enjoy your day!

Tiny creations

Some felt food for our littlest cook πŸ™‚

I’ve also made some plain pancakes, croissants, bisquits (all from a lovely felt) but was too lazy to take pictures of all of them…

Instead I will show you what’s comming to my shop soon. I’m working on boxed sets:

a custom order

and bears

Once these are done, the next exciting thing planned – sharing my patterns here with you, so you can make what I make πŸ˜‰

The weekend is here. Have a great one!

I’ve been given a chance to open up a little about my very important self by a lovely Kyoko :).

1. I have two kids, but still would like one more.

2. I’m 5.9 feet tall and I could count on my fingers how many times I’ve worn high heels so far.

3. I’m not too much into cooking these days, but give me a reason to bake… For eating what’s baked I never need a reason, just a will to stop πŸ™‚

4. I’ve sown a proper fully lined winter coat at the age of 17 and a long evening dress at 19, both entirely by hand. I’ve been told it looked really god. I would still wear it if I would have it and would still fit in it… eh.

5. Having a choice of spending an afternoon in a spa, being pampered or to buy something that lasts – so far I haven’t doubted – I’ll buy a chair over 2 hours of full body massage. The only exception is food πŸ™‚ It doesn’t last, but I’ll not say ‘no’ to a good treat.

6. I often have at least a couple of books that I’ve started reading and will choose one depending on what mood I’m in to. Usually it’s either uplifting fiction or medical books. I’m obsessed with natural health topics πŸ™‚

7. If I would have a choice to go back in time it would be the 1920s.

I pass the tag on to:

Autumn is probably my favorite time of the year. I love spring, the warmth, the blossoms, the sun high in the sky, life bursting all around and the smell. But autumn has this sentimental, melancholic yet so cozy and comforting atmosphere. And the color… I love earthy shades. And how they change.

Autumn brings so much harvest. It’s beautiful. Don’t you agree?

So that’s what my neighbourhood looks like at the moment πŸ™‚

Some favorites from our recent trip to Den Haag in Netherlands. It’s our second time at the Todays Art festival. Last year we met some really lovely people there and generally had a great weekend. I love The Hague, it’s small and cozy. And the festival itself makes me wanna do big things….

Compagnie Retouramont – three dancers in a mid-air choreography

My husband was participating this year again, so here is his master piece

A truly amazing urban installationΒ  – Augmented Space by Pablo Valbuena

all of these beautiful visual effects caused by the movement over glass or plastic are by Bram Vreven

our friends LAb[au]

White Line by Olaf Bender

Going to events like this as a family has its highs, our boys enjoyed themselves and hopefully it widens their horizons that creative possibilities and ideas are endless… The lows of bringing little people to a 2-day festival is that we only really managed to see maybe half of what we could have seen. There were quite a few modern dance, dj performances that we would have loved to have seen. Next time we go there, we gonna have a different plan πŸ˜‰

Two girls – two swaps

I enjoy making things (a lot!), especially if I know they gonna have a concrete ‘owner’ to go to. All of my toys are intended for kids and I always hope that my little creations will be played with, so having neglected unsold toys standing on my bookshelf is not the result I hoped for. I still have two ladies: Isolda and Isabelle, who really need to move from our home to somewhere where they will be appreciated. So I’m offering swaps this time. Nothing big. To you from me: my elephants, some other mini goodies that I’ll add according to what the winners will be interested in and I would hope to get something small in return. Anything you would love me to have. Simple and hopefully fun πŸ™‚



If you’re interested – drop a line in the comments (pls name the elephant you would like to own) and I’ll pick (next friday the 10th of October) two swap partners for myself .

Have a great weekend!
