my first Ikebana

October 13th, 2017 by BLOGitse received 7 Comments »

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

Hi everyone!

 

About leaving a comment.

If you’re a Blogspot blogger you see this kind of list of options

for others to leave comments:

 

name:URL option commenting by BLOGitse

 

Here I click name/URL option

and after that it looks (sorry in Finnish!) like this

 

I'm not a robot by BLOGitse

 

So here – as a human being – I need to tick that I’m not a robot.

If you get nasty/bad/saddening etc. comments

they are written by other human being.

But don’t worry, just ignore, delete them.

 

Or publish them!

I have a wish for Blogger bloggers:

most of PPF bloggers do NOT have

name/URL option to leave a comment.

Because I have self-hosted blog that

option is the only one for me, please change your settings!

(I don’t use google, wp..or any other options)

 

If you don’t/will not have this option please tell me why not?

 

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

this and that after holidays…

Hi everyone!

Now it’s over – all summer holidays.

We came back on Monday from Greece + Spain holiday.

I tried to do some drawing, painting but I couldn’t really concentrate…

So I forget September’s 29faces challenge this time.

Here’s one I did for fun, one line drawing of Einstein 🙂

 

http://www.blogitse.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Einstein-with-one-line-by-BLOGitse.jpg

 

Theme Art challenge in September 2017 is
’let’s start’

 

Teemakuun haaste syyskuussa on
‘aloitetaan’ ja minähän aloitin jo lomalla,
tässä lämmittelyä lyijykynällä ja väriähän oli sen jälkeen lisättävä.

 

#1 & #2

Next day I was inspired what I saw at the end of the pool…

 

Seuraavana päivänä uima-altaan päädyssä ollut palmu

innoitti piirtämään. Olen siis päässyt jo hiukan vireeseen! 🙂

Málaga Spain hidden paradise by BLOGitse

 

In Málaga we noticed the smoke in the mountain and hidden paradise?! what???

Here’s the truth of that paradise in the city center…

I hope this is for private use not for airbnb – you can take nice photos but what a shock it

would be to experience this kind of paradise…

It’s nice to be at home again!

 

I hope your life is safe and good.

Too many catastrophes are going on right now…

Hi everyone!
How are you? Did you have a good summer?
My summer was great even if the weather wasn’t perfect…hubby had six weeks vacation so we had time to do things at home and a couple of short trips etc. And tomorrow we’ll escape for two weeks. First one week in Greece and then another in Spain. Can’t wait sun, good food and wine, swimming, being…

I’ll try to draw 29faces too. And to take a lot of photos! 🙂
