April 24th, 2015 by BLOGitse received 9 Comments »

 

 

Hi everybody!

I can feel it – spring is in Helsinki!

Even if it’s not very warm yet

you can see some flowers, green baby leaves

and

evenings are longer,

today sunset is at 9 pm.

By the way, I like practical  time and date site!

 

 

Here’s my forest collage for

 

Paint Party Friday

 

Note!

If you want my comment

check you have name/URL option on, thank you!

The mute swan (Cygnus olor) /kyhmyjoutsen

If you want to see my old posts from Seurasaari,

write ‘Seurasaari’ in a search box. Old posts from 2009 look so cute :)

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

March 27th, 2015 by BLOGitse received 7 Comments »

 

Hi everyone!

 

After a long and interesting holiday

I’m in Helsinki again.

 

It was soooo good to sleep in own bed, aaaah!

 

I will post several weeks about our trip –

I took over 1.000 photos! and some

of them I want to share with you…

 

As you know I couldn’t really paint

but one day I put a rubber glove on

and started to play with watercolors – better than nothing!

 

 

These are for

 

Paint Friday Party
