A break

 Just want to wish you all a great weekend!
Maybe I come back again later, but at the moment I'm happy with a break from blogging.

'There was nothing to say...'

Today I was suddenly thinking about a poem I once wrote, as a part of my final exam at the AKI Academy of Fine Arts in Enchede, Holland. It was a short poetic 'career' that ended there, back in 1999.

'There was nothing to say...'

There was nothing to say today.
The wind walks by and I can't 
forget that moment.
It was like a naked foot on my stomach,
like water in my hands
that would not drip away.

There was nothing to say, no secrets,
nothing to hide.
The wind walks by,
the moment is still here, still close,
it could never be sketched with foresight.

I have nothing to say today.
I'm just going, the silence is here,
it has become quiet.
Light rain in my hair,
it does not feel wet.
I just go for a walk, my feet bring me somewhere,
it doesn't matter where.

With a sketch by foresight,
could never be found.

Dreaming of blue flowers

Ever since I had to spend a few weeks in hospital, and I saw this wallpaper for the first time, I could not get it out of my head. I was very sick back then, and found comfort in looking at beautiful interior blogs on my computer (and of course, I think I got one example of every interior magazine they had in that small hospital shop). It was at that time I found this lovely blog vihrea talo,  and this wallpaper designed by Birger Kaipiainen in the 1950's. Finally I got to order a sample, and finally I understand why I could not get it out of my head. Even more beautiful in real life color.

A new dress

Working on finishing this dress I've started on a few months ago. Of course it's a 1940's dress. I love the 1940's fashion. I'm not sure if this fabric is the perfect one for this style because of the soft draping around the shoulders. Otherwise I will try to improvise and hope for the best results. 
Anyway, sewing is meditation.

'New Dawn' Roses

Enjoying the very last roses of the year.

 It's like poetry, hidden inside of climbing branches. 
Soon going to sleep. A deep, winter sleep. 
  Waiting for next years New Dawn.

Sofa Makeover

One of those simple, not so special sofas. A couple of hours and a couple of cups with coffee later, a perfect furniture for mye 12 year old and her almost finished, new room. She selected the upholstery and cusion fabric herself from here.
