wow, that’s true,

this is 1490th post!

 

Last weekend we visited our friend’s summerhouse

(used all year round). No snow.  The sea looked cold.

But I found some really green spots and grey beauties…

I can’t wait brighter, lighter days!!!

 

26 days for winter solstice

 

How many hours do you sleep at night?

 

Normally I sleep 7-8 hours…but now I notice it’s difficult

to get out of the bed in the morning even if I’m awake…it’s sooo dark!

and

 

Theme Art challenge November

 

‘there’s a window’

 

I call my entry ‘Six can be one…’

 

 

 

Marraskuun teemakuun kollaasi ‘On ikkuna…’ valmistui kerralla.

Työnimi on ‘kuusi voi olla yksi’

On ikkuna keltainen

tai kultainen niin kuusi voi olla yksi. 🙂

It’s November again and time to beat it with Lepis from Parralel Lines.

 

This November is full of happiness

 

aesthetics of everyday life / arjen estetiikkaa

 

 

‘According to Richard Shusterman we can find everyday life aesthetics from

nature, human body, rituals, sports, fireworks, popular culture,

home decorations, tattoos, cave drawings, cosmetics and so on.

It is to be found from colorful views and inspiring happenings that enrich our lives.’

 

 

Here we go, day 1 and 2

 

how-to-survive-nov-2016_1-by-blogitse

 

In Finland we can drink tap water – no need for bottled water…

When it’s cold outside it’s nice and warm inside…

 

 

More aesthetics of my everyday life coming soon.
