A Library Find

I love libraries, and I'm grateful that we have great (and free) libraries here in Finland. Last time, I found this awesome book, Making a House Your Home, The EssentialGuide to Modern Day Homemaking by Clare Nolan. 

If you have a chance to buy or borrow this book, do it! The book is full of beautiful photos, plus the text parts are not the usual blah blah. Great tips and ideas.

This is our chocolate labrador retriever, Tilli, meeting her new pal, Unna, for the first time. Her expression is pretty funny when she notices Unna sleeping on the floor.

Painters I Love

My 5 favorite painters. Click the name to see their art.

                   By Mae Chevrette 

Helene Schjerfbeck

I love how her work is rugged and very delicate at the same time.

Ilya Repin

I love how his paintings are full of stories. When I look at them, I can't stop thinking "what happened?" "why?" "who is she?".

Edgar Degas

I love his beautiful ballet dancer paintings. 

Claude Monet

I love how he uses color

Beatrix Potter

I love her soft color palette. And her characters, of course ;)

Easy Ice Lanterns

I made these super easy ice lanterns, or ice bowls, whatever you want to call them. 

All you need is balloons, water and a freezer(or just freezing weather). If you let them freeze naturally, meaning outside, the ice will be more transparent.
