I can do this another day…. 📷😊🎨

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I know I’m not the best “blogger” or writer the world at the moment 📝, but I will update you in a couple of days with “a why”. or maybe “a what”, is probably more correctly, I haven’t had the best time to keep my blog and texts “updated” during the last days, weeks or month. And it’s also something I can do another day, write in my blog- isn’t it? 😉

But I think I just start with some “easy” posts/ textes first, maybe even a bit boring posts first 😅 now in the end of November- and before I will “take you through my daughter’s story” in a couple of days.

So today it is about painting, painted glassbottles I really need to be better to just be “totally” finish with, when a bottle is finish painted – and not just “wait to another day ” with the totally finish, the last, “easy” rest- like take some video and do a tiny little “photo shoot” of the finish painted glassbottle 🎨 .

With that means- it means to be better to “organize” my finish painted glassbottles- take the photos and movies I want to take, and put on a title note on the bottle too, and special on the bottles I’m going to “put out” for sale one day. Because that’s a part of my plan, to give my bottles a name and put them “out there” for sale. But they just “disappear” a bit faster then I had in my mind now and then – so there’s still no one for sale yet 😅.

It doesn’t takes to much time, to make this videos, take the photos and put in a tittle note, but it still takes a bit of time, and to be honest,- I think like many of us do – “I can do this an other day, it’s not in a hurry”. But obviously, like I mention, I really need to be better to just finish a bottle when it’s actually is finish 😊.

It’s not just the photo session of my glassbottles I think like this- “I can do this another day” – also for example when it comes to clean my home- I wait because it’s not sooo dirty or messy around me. But if I get guests I get still a bit stressed because I want it to be clean and nice 😊. If I have not “delayed” my “house cleaning day” , I didn’t need to be a bit stressed out 😅. Or wash some clothes as long as I have clean clothes I can be a bit good to wait a bit more days before I to put on a washing machine with clothes. Or do some food shopping if I actually have some kind of food in my fridge, I’m actually not running to the store to buy some more. I wait until it’s more necessary.

So it’s true- many things in our life we actually can do another day, at the same time as there are many things we just can’t wait to do either. Like what I have used ny time during the last month. It’s not all things in life that can be put “on hold”- but my glassbottles actually can. It’s not a big “crises”- it’s just makes it a bit more difficult for me to get a good “photo shoot” of my glassbottles after I have give them away 😅 – if I put the photo session of my finish painted glassbottles a bit “on hold” 😊.

Finished glassbottles- but not for sale- gifts to my family in Norway 🎁

It’s not the first time I just in a sudden are given away or selling a glassbottle or more, I wasn’t prepared on to give away or sell at in that moment. And of course I haven’t took any video or good photos of the bottle or bottles before they suddenly belongs to someone else 😅. Like for example with the 24- 25 bottles I did deliver the Casa Barella/ Natasja, or the one I gave to Irene or just some weeks ago, when 3 bottles was just sold in a hurry 😅.

The blue one I was actually totally finish with and have also shared in my blog, at Facebook and Instagramas well, but the two other once …well this is the only photos I have from them- in their new home 😅

I need to admit I get both supriced and very happy when someone like my painted glassbottles. Actually like them so much that they just not want to buy one, two or three, but actually order some as well 😊.

So I have taking videos and photos this weekend, created a “not for sale” table and a “for sale” shelf, and of course have a desk with different glassbottles “under process and production”. And made a plan over my photo sessions when every bottle is finish 😅📸

I like to paint and I like my glassbottles “production”- it has just been a couple of “challenges ” lately- my time has not been to much available to paint lately. But hopefully things in life will “calm a bit down” now in December.

Do you think “I can do this tomorrow, or another day” when it come to different things in your life? Or do you do your things “there and then” no matter what it is?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

I’m trying to organize my glassbottles a bit 😊 Finish gifts to my family, ready for sale and under process and production

A little baby knit for a little princess 🧶😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

In between work and job and a couple of unexpected other things I have manage to knit a bit clothes to a sweet little baby princess.

A very good friend of my got a baby girl some months ago, more exactly in the beginning of July this year. So this little baby girl starting to get older and a bit bigger too, and it’s also starting to be colder here in Spain. So hopefully some knitted clothes will keep her a bit warm during the wintertime? ….if they fits…😳😊

I’m not sure if the clothes actually will fit this “sweety pie” because she is growing up so fast and she is already soon closely 5 months, and I have been knitting in size 3- 6 months 🧶. Maybe it will be baby- doll clothes instead ?😊

Some knitted baby clothes for the wintertime to a sweet little baby girl 🥰.

And to be honest,- I have been a bit slowly with my knitting too because there has been a couple of other things then just work I needed to “deal” with to during the last months. It’s an other story and I’m going to tell you what has “kept” my time and days busy- when the time is right to tell.

A jacket, scarf, two hats in different sizes and trousers 🧣

I don’t think one of the hat will fit, not either the trousers, but probably the scarf and maybe the other hat and the jacket.

A yellow dress- maybe this will fit? 👗

My friend and her baby girl are in Norway at the moment and visiting their family and friends so it’s a bit difficult to try the clothes on her daughter too 😊.

She knows her daughter will get this clothes when they are back home in Spain. And she also know that maybe they can be to small.

I have started on something new to the baby princess – in size 6- 9 months…..just in case 😊

I do manage to do a couple of other things in between work, job and unexpected happenings in life- like knit and paint too. I need to – just to relax a bit in my mind, a tiny little timeout from “all and everything”.

A “cozy suit” for coldwinter days – maybe this will it-but I’m not sure.

The photos are maybe not the best, but I can’t manage “it all ” 😅.

And when it comes to the knit recipe- I’m using Norwegian recipes created mainly to use different kinds of Norwegian yarn. And I knitting with Spanish yarn at the moment. You should think it shouldn’t be any difference, but it actually are. Even when I’m trying my best to follow the knit recipe there’s some different changes when it comes to the size in the recipe I’m using and how the product is when it’s finish. And of course also the size of the knitting needles are also a crucial factor for the garment to be correct in size.

Do you have something you to when your mind and thoughts just need to rest a bit?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon I hope 😊

A soft dress in pink ❄👗. The last one for this time is a soft dress in light pink. This one I actually think will fit the little baby princess 👸.

In between work, job and a bit unexpected happenings in life I need to take a “timeout” I need to just let my mind and thoughts rest for a tiny bit- and then it’s good to have some knittin needles and yarn to “play” a bit with 😊🧶.

Let’s the time be growing and flowering ⏳🕰🥀

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

In between my jobs I have also managed to paint a painting on a canvas to Natasja’s birthday 🎁. And also got the pleasure to be invited to her birthday party, and celebrate her together with her friends 😊🎈🎉.

I called the painting “Let’s the time be growing and flowering ” ⏳🥀. And it’s more then one reason for both the title as well as the illustration in the painting.

“Let’s the time be growing and flowering”- size 40*40 cm. Art.nr : LSA 084

It’s a clock because for some reason Natasja really likes clocks. And it’s mainly in pink, also because she loves the colour pink, and the flowers,- well,- she actually like them too 😅. And if you look a bit closely at the painting you can see that some of the numbers, four of them to be correctly, are painted in an other colour. Can you imagine why? And what the numbers stands for? It’s not very difficult 😊.

But it’s more “behind” this painting then just the colours and illustrations painted just because Natasja likes it. In my mind when I painted the painting this is also about “the time”, the time we have,- every second, minute, hour, day (and so on). The times goes no matter what, it doesn’t stand still or stops, even it can feels like that sometimes.

So let’s try to create a tiny good and positive memory in our time, the hour or the day 🧡. Then the time will get another value then just be ” the time”. Because it’s important to value the time we have,- and we do not know how much time we have.

If you look a bit closer one more time at the painting you will see that theres one big a large pointer on the number 12, and 12 smaller pointer.  One refers to each number, one refers to each hour. Each hour in a day ⏳. It’s for the same reason,- the value of the time. Our value we give our time, our day 🌹. Can you see the time is actually sparkling in the watch?

The time changes also, all the time. It can be small changes and it can be big changes. It can even be some challenges, as well, in our time, our day. Challenges are sometimes some hard knowledge to learn by, but not always. And the time gives us knowledge as well, all the time, even when we don’t notice it 😊. The changes does it to, but maybe in a different way?

In my imagination this watch also is a kind of dream catcher. Not all and everyone can see that, but I can- and it’s a dream catcher to Natasja. A dream catcher that will send out all her good dreams, wishes and goals, and create them to reality in it’s own way in her life, in their life 🏵. Because it’s not always our dreams, wishes and goals comes through in the way we did or does have in our imagination, in our mind- just because that probably wasn’t the best for us to have it quite that way or that moment- but in some or another way they actually comes through- it’s just difficult to see it,- because we did had another image about how it should be 🧡.

The flowers are growing and flowering around the clock, the watch, the time. They are growing and flowering around the watch the way I really wish the time, the changes, the challenges, the knowledge, the different opportunities, the different experiences will be flowering and growing in a positive, exciting and marvelous way and direction for and in Natasja’s life, and of course also, her husband, Klaus too 🧡. In all their era in their life, not just for their cafe Case Barella, but in every era,- like love, their home, their health and so much more 🧡.

And to the end,- the flowers are growing around the watch, like they are taking care of the time. Can you see that? It’s because I really hope and wish that there will be growing and flowering so much great things in their life as well as I really hope and wish that they will take good care about the time, the memories, the knowledge, the experiences, the opportunities they have, and I also know they will get in their future 🧡.

This is the way I see the painting, this is what I did try to paint into the painting,- but it’s not sure you see it? Maybe you see something else and something different from this? Just because we see things in life differently 😊🧡. And also because we can’t see the whole picture at the same time, we see different things and parts, and little by little we put them together to a picture that in it’s own way makes sense for us, our mind and soul and thoughts, our time- and what we see and feel 😊.

We will always use and understand the time differently, but it doesn’t matter as long as the time in some or another way gives value in our life 🧡.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you- it’s your time 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon 😊

Some parts of the painting,- maybe a dream catcher or maybe just some arrows?

I have manage to paint a painting inbetween busy days,- and I have called it “Let’s the time be growing and flowering” ⏳🥀. And it’s a reason for that- we use our time differently, we fill up our time with different things too, and we understand the time differently as well ⏳. Even this painting will we see and understand differently 😊.

The blue ocean on some glassbottles 🏝🌊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

In between my work I have manage to paint a bit. I need to paint a bit to get a tiny little bit of a kind of a timeout, get my mind and thoughts away, just let my head in it’s own way relax and rest a bit🎨. But it, unfortunately, haven’t been so much time for the painting either as I wanted, but I did manage to paint some glassbottles with the blue ocean on 🏝🌊.

So why did it became the blue ocean? Because the bottles or bottle was to Irene, my oldest son’s girlfriend 😊. She has helped me with a couple of things and I wanted to give her something personal as a “Thank you” for the help- gift 🧡.

I did ask her what her favourite colour was and her favourite images or illustrations was. And it was blue and the ocean 🌊.

I was actually not sure how to do that one,- but in some way I did manage it 😅.

I did paint three different bottles, and she could choose all three if she wanted, or just one, or actually non if she didn’t like anyone of them 😊. I don’t expect “all and everyone” to like my glassbottles even I like them 😊.

Three different glassbottles with the “touch” of blue and ocean in some or another way 🌊🏝

Irene did choose the one in the middle, the one with the waves,- and to be honest I actually did though so too. That one was the most difficult to paint, even that one has “less” kind of “illustrations” and colours on. But in some way I needed to try to get the waves “move” a bit, give them a kind of “life”. And to manage that I needed to paint a couple of times before the painting was to dry, , and also use different colours of the blue combination 🌊.

An othe direction from the photos I did send to Irene when the bottles was finish.

Of course Irene did see all the bottles “live” before she did choose one, but at the same time she already have did up her mind after the different photos I did send her 😊. And of course she got the stinght light too put inside her bottle 💡. It’s just me that forgot to take some good photos from the glassbottles this time 😳.

Irene’s bottle in her glass cabinets in her home 😊. Taken by my son or Irene- I’m not sure😊 Not the best photo,- but better then no photo at all 😊

I’m going to paint some more glassbottles with waves on,- even it was a bit difficult to get the correct “touch” of the waves, it was fun to paint, and I did like the results of the painted waves too 😊. And maybe next time when I’m visiting Irene I will remember to take a better photo of her glassbottle with the waves too, and show you 😊

So even it has been some busy days and weeks lately because of a lots of work, I do manage something else in between working, eating and sleeping, and sometimes even socializing 😅. And little by little I will manage more things too,- it’s just not easy to turn around into a new routine or change the routines I have,- but I’m working on it. Step by step 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog 🧡.

See you soon I hope 😊.

An other different direction from the glassbottles with blue ocean in some or another way 🌊🏝.

In between busy days I have manage to paint some glassbottles with the “touch” of blue and the ocean in some or another way 🏝🌊. To paint the waves and give them some kind of “life” was not the easiest painting I have done,- but still really fun. And I’m going to paint some more glassbottles “touched” by the ocean and the waves one day … very soon I hope 🌊🏝😊.

Welcome to my little private backyard cafe ☕🍪

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m so inspired over Natasja and her husband’s cozy and charming cafe Casa Barella in La Cala/ Mijas that I wanted to have my own tiny little private in my backyard 😊.

I can, of course, visit Casa Barella, and when I have the possibility to visit Casa Barella I do that too. But I haven’t any car at the moment so it’s a bit more difficult to just drop by the cafe now and then 😊. I need to take the train and then the bus, and when I’m working closely every day it’s, unfortunately, takes a bit of time this travel from Caravajal to La Cala.

I need to admit that Casa Barella it’s much more cozy and with an other atmosphere then in my “private” cafe,- but something is better then nothing 😊. And now I have “created” “something”, a cozy private cafe in my backyard 🥰.

My private little cafe in my backyard 😊. It became a bit cozy with candles, lights and plants.

The first month here I haven’t done anything in the front of the house, where my private little cafe is now. It’s just the last days I have had energy to “create” an welcoming atmosphere here. But Rome was not built on one day either, so good things takes time to create 😊.

This is the front page, ie the entrance to my temporary home. Pretty cozy, and actually very private at the moment. Totally perfect for a home and completely perfect for a holiday home.

It felt a bit better and also more welcoming now when the entrance to the home is created on a cozy and welcoming way, as well as with an relaxing atmosphere around. And I like that my guests, my family and friends feel welcome to me and my home 🥰.

And I have already have some guests in my “cafe” too 😊. Of course all and everything I serving in “my cafe” is for free, but there’s not very much on “the menu” to choose between. You get what I make and serve 😊. Well,- in general it’s a bit more “freedom” to choose between what you want to drink then eat in “my backyard cafe” 😅. But when it comes to the food,- it is what it is,- and this week it has been homemade Norwegian waffles and homemade Norwegian apple cake muffins,- that’s it 🥞. But I can promise you, and also reccomend you, it’s so much more homemade food to choose between in Casa Barella. There is actually a perfect menu to pick between so many great and tasty food and dishes 😊.

Homemade Norwegian waffles and homemade Norwegian apple cake muffins 😊

What will be on “my” menu next week? I have actually no idea yet, but in general I think it will be something homemade from probably some of my Norwegian recipes 😊.

It’s actually quite nice to sit in “the backyard cafe” in the afternoon when the sun is shining and it’s a bit hot around the corners 🌞. It’s a bit more cooling air, and much of the reason is enough because the sun only comes to a few hours, and the surrounding brick walls are cooling and create a cooling atmosphere.

But in the evenings it can be a bit of mosquitos, to be honest. The solution is to find some lemon and claves, or use some lemon candles, or just lemons, but in general I actually “run up” to the roof terrace instead in the evenings 😊.

It’s really nice to sit there during the evenings,- I will show you a bit more from the roof terrace an other day 😊. We can’t take it all and everything at ones 😊.

Look at this,- it’s a bit of a place I’m renting 🥰. It’s in a way 3 floors if I’m counting with the roof terrace 😊. All this “white house” is the place I have been so incredibly lucky to rent🧡

I can’t understand how lucky I’m so have got this incredibly possibility to renting this nice and cozy holiday home with it’s own typical Spanish atmosphere and “touch”. And all the different possibilities it’s in and around the home as well as in the area 🥰.

And little by little I’m going to show you around in this home as well as in the area 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

My private backyard cafe and from different “directions” 😊.

I like to create it nice and cozy around me,- and this week I have had the time to “create” the entrance to my home welcoming and cozy 🥰. I have in a way created a tiny area like a private little cafe in my backyard area as well 😊. And I have even had already guests in my “cafe” too 😊.
