Happy happy

I have an idea, and I just can't wait to make it come true!! Exciting. I love spontaneity (when that happens to me, hehe...)!

Btw. England last weekend was best ever. Partly because I won't need to wait long at all until I see him again. Only 9 days now :-O!!
Love is groovy at the moment! I'm doing lots of different things, and I have wonderful things to look forward to!
Take it easy, xx

Thinking like Anne Shirley

I'm thinking and dreaming a lot. It makes sense: I'm a thinker and a dreamer, and I mostly keep it to myself. It can make the day the worst ever, or it can make the day really inspiring and wonderful.

Either way, those days when all the thoughts rule my life a bit too much, I escape to the world of music, and I think about Anne of Green Gables. It gives me comfort to read the quotes, and even though she is just a character, it feels good to know I'm not alone in being like this.

For bad times:

"My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes. That's a sentence I read once and I say it over to comfort myself in these times that try the soul"

Marilla Cuthbert: "You set your heart too much on frivolous things and then crash down into despair when you don't get them".
Anne Shirley: "I know. I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset... almost pays for the thud."

"I don't want any of it to change. I wish I could just hold on to those days forever. I have a feeling things will never be the same again, will they?"

And good times:

"I'm afraid to speak or move for fear that all this wonderful beauty will just vanish... like a broken silence."

"I feel as though someone's handed me the moon... and I don't exactly know what to do with it.

"I went looking for my dreams outside of myself and discovered, it's not what the world holds for you, it's what you bring to it."

A funny dream

I had the weirdest dream last night. And it was funny, coz everyone, including me spoke English. I was at my old school, in a classroom, 15 years old. And my teacher asked me to read something from a book (everyone had the same). So I started, but I had the sunlight from the window in my eyes, so I stopped quite a lot coz I couldn't see the words. The teacher got upset and said "You always want to be so different, right? Reading in that kind of way!" and then she let someone else read the rest. I interrupted her to explain, but she just accused me for lying.

Later on, we watched a film in the classroom, and I went to the toilet quickly. When I came back (we were sitting in a sofa, only 5 people or something) she said "where is your bracelet?" and I said: "what? I didn't have a bracelet!" she: "Stop lying to me!!"

A few minutes later , she went to the toilet to check, and found a bracelet, came back and said: "liar!". "But that bracelet is NOT mine!" I said. She still thought I was lying, and sat down in the sofa. I argued with her like a typical teenager, but said "Please, please, please Mrs!!!!!!" She then thought I was trying to act older than her and got even more upset. Suddenly, my classmate picked up new socks from her bag, and handed them to the teacher, and then a fiver to me: "here you are, stop arguing now!" The teacher went out of the classroom again, for just a few seconds, and when she came back she said: "it wasn't yours". And of course I knew that, so I told her a million times "I told you so!!!!!!!!!!" and then "can you believe in me now, please?!?!". She just muttered and the dream ended.

Also, in the middle of the dream, I woke up by a sound, and saw that I had knocked down the lamp by my bed! It didn't break, only the lampshade fell off. I must have hit that teacher or something? ;)

My first studio photos!

It's really cool being in the studio with Karin and Samuel. I'm learning a lot, and it's very nice. A few weeks ago, I practiced taking photos in the studio for the first time, after been reading and learning from Karin a lot. My first guinea pig was my mum :), and here's the result. She got the pictures for her birthday the other day!

Check out
the studio's website btw! :)

Green Wedding Shoes

In one way, I'm not sure if I want to reveal this treasure I've discovered (in fact, my friend showed me...). But in another way, I just need to share it! These pictures and ideas and couples are incredibly beautiful, and so inspiring. I'm in my dreamy mood, and I just can't wait for the day when I'll get married.

Spring fever

As a winter lover, it's weird to admit that I'm longing for spring now. But I do like spring a lot as well. Especially all the light, bright colours everywhere.

I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring

- Frank Sinatra

Flea markets are the best

It's cheap, good for the enviroment, unique, and the best thing about it: the things you find in there are the the most beautiful ever!

So yesterday, I went to one with my sister for the first time since long before Christmas. For 80 Swedish kronor, I got all these things!

Two pillowcases, one small bird to my collection, and a sugar bowl in the same style as a few other things I have!

A glass jug, and... wow, a very, very old abacus! When I showed my mum, she said her mum had had one when she was a child! So glad I found it!

A nice, green tablecloth.

And last but not least, this incredibly pretty skirt in yellow, green and blue! (It looks purple on the pictures...) It's gonna go very well with my new yellow blouse that I got from James, and a yellow cardigan that I have!

Spring, you're welcome!
