The Flea Market Stuff

I had my dear friend Linda visiting yesterday. It was so good to see after a looong time. After catching up on each others' lives, drinking coffee and eating ice cream, we went to the big recycling center/ flea market, which I live nearby. She found a lots of nice things - lanterns and pillows etc. I found those nice yellow yarns (first photo) - don't know yet what I'm going to make but I loved the color. It's perfect for incoming autumn. 
In that place there is also a small shop U6 - Uusix, there is a lots of nice ideas how to give a new life for all kind of old stuff. Here you you can see some. I bought those magnets (second photo), honey! and enkeli (=angel.)

And then this chair! I just got it. I don't even know from who, but it was left in our staircase and I wrote a note on it, that if they were going to throw it away, I would love to recondition it. And they gave it to me! It was my happy day:) I'm studying upholstering in school so this is going to be a perfect project. I love that chair!

Some new things to home

We found this board whit those wise words from AmandaB-shop.I like it :)

Just a simple, little box for breads.

I dyed my hair really dark brown, almost black.

And my lilies... I have a big bunch of white lilies on my kitchen table. Those are absolutely one of my favorite flowers!

This is our balcony. We bought that white table and the chairs from sale this week.  I going to make some nice pillows on the chairs as soon as I find some nice fabric :)

What a lovely holiday!

I had a nice and quiet holiday with my boyfriend in my grandpa's summer cottage on a small island. That's the place where I've spent part of my summer vacation almost every year since I was 8-month-old. The place is full of memories. It's a big lake with lot's of islands - big and small ones. And it's so quiet there. It's so different, so relaxing, after living in capital. All you can hear is birds and waves. Every now and then some boat. 
We read books and magazines. We slept a lot. We swam and watched the rain. It was good.
Tomorrow back to work.
How is your summer?

I have this summer feeling

I have to post this few pictures from our summer cottage. I've taken those at Midsummer but didn't have time to post them before.

One more day at work and then we are going on holiday for a few days. So, see you after a week!

Listening this.

This busy summertime

I haven't really had that much time for blogging that I would like have. This summertime seems to be pretty busy. At least every now and then I have time to post something :)
Welcome all readers, it's nice you have joined here. It makes me happy!
Next three days I'm going to work and at Monday we bound for Eastern Finland. Yay!

Have a good end of this week <3
