To a little baby girl 😊🧡

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

This weekend I visited a tiny, very new and so incredibly sweet little baby girl 🍼🧡. She is so beautiful 🥰. And of course I visited her mammi too. Her mammi is my great (Norwegian) friend, Line 😊. And it was so good to see them both 🥰. All is fine with the newborn and the mammi, and the daddy as well 😊.

And I’m the first one, except from the mammi and daddy, and of course the nurses and doctors, to see, meet and hold this little wonderful baby girl 🥰. I feel a bit honored over that, I need to admit that 🧡. And I’m really looking forward to get to know this little sweetheart 🥰.

I started to knit a baby blanket to the baby, I think in the middle of May, and I really wanted to be finish with the blanket as well as give it to Line before the baby was born. But I was not sure if I would manage it inbetween moving, jobs, glass bottles painting ( totally 27 🎨) ,and a bit more too 😅. But I did,- the blanket is finish, and Line got it just some days before her and her boyfriend’s baby was born 😊.

The blanket is knit with 100 % cotton so it’s nice and soft for the little baby girl. Maybe a bit to warm to use inside at the moment, or even outside too. Because we have some warm summer days here in Spain at the moment 🌞.

The knitted baby blanket- knit by me 🧶😊

I have started on some baby clothes too to this little baby girl. But in size 3 to 6 months, and 6 to 9 months. It’s a bit to warm for some knit clothes now, but there will be a colder Autumn and a Winter when soft and warm clothes are good to have 🧶.

And it is so strange to knit baby clothes. They are so tiny and small, and it goes so fast to knit them too, then to knit to adults. I’m actually finish with a jacket and a couple of trousers already to this little sweetheart 🧶🧡. But the baby will get them a bit later together with something more clothes. She doesn’t need knitted clothes like that at the moment, and it can be good to have some “bigger” clothes to choose between when the Autumn and winter is coming.

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 😊

The finish baby blanket knit in 100 % cotton 🧶. I actually forgot to write down the size before Igave the blanket to Line, but it’s more then big enough for the baby for many months 😊.

I didn’t thought I was going to manage finish the baby blanket before the baby to one of my great friend was born,- but I actually did 😊🧶. And this weekend I was so incredibly lucky to meet this little baby girl and her mammi too 🥰.

It feels like the time just flies away 💙🎈🎁

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

Today it’s 27 year since I became a mammi for the first time in my life,- to a lovely baby boy. The most fantastic, sweetest and gorgeous baby boy I have ever seen 💙. It was a marvellous moment, and in it’s own way still is 💙.

I still remember that day, 27 years ago, and it’s a day I’m probably going to remember with joy and happiness for the rest of my life 💙. I was so proud, and still is 🥰.

A so proud mammi to my first born child 27 years  ago- a friend of my in Norway did take this photo when she visited us in the hospital 💙

The feeling to hold him in my arms for the first time was fantastic 🥰. I felt so deeply in love with this little baby boy it felt like my heart was going to explode 💖. And this love has not became any less during the years, not at all ❤. Just bigger and stronger for very day 💙.

The love I feel for him is so strong, so unconditional- it’s impossible for me to explain with any words. There’s no words big enough to manage explain my love for him, and how incredibly proud I’m to be his mammi 💙. And how incredibly proud I’m of my son, my oldest son, my first born child 💙.

He is not a baby or child anymore, he is a young adult man. I do forget that sometimes, actually a bit often now and then too. He will probably always be my child, no matter how old he is 💙.

He goes his own ways in life, and that’s so fine 🥰. I see he is happy in his life, he works hard, and he reach the different goals he want to reach. He loves to entertain, something he always has liked to do.

He is helpful, and help out as best as he can if anyone close to him need some help of any kind 😊. And he really love to live close to the nature, and enjoys his life in the mountains 😊.

It’s getting a bit more difficult to find good and useful birthday presents to him as older he get 🎁. He manage to buy what he need on his own now 😊. But I really want to give him something that in it’s own way represent the love I feel for him. The proud. The best wishes for him in his life.

If I could, I have probably given him what ever he wanted and wish for, but I can’t. I can give him my unconditional love, and something that shows my love for him 💙. So this year it became a painted winebottle, but not a empty winebottle. A winebottle with wine inside. A winebottle, one of a kind, just like my oldest son 💙.

It’s the first time I have painted on a winebottle with wine inside. It was a bit different to paint, because the bottle was heavier and the different reflections became different then I’m use to. And I was so worried to loose the bottle when I painted. I really didn’t want it to break.

I have actually looked around in different stores to find a winebottle colour with blue glass, and lucky for me I did manage to fine one after a while 💙.

In case I could not remove the label on the bottle I took a picture of it to be able to show my son what wine is inside the bottle.

I did manage to remove the label, and put it together with his birthday card 😊.

The birthday- card to my oldest son- with the label from the wine too 😊

I have been working with this winebottle for a while, but still I was a bit worried I shouldn’t manage to get finish to my son’s birthday. But I did 😊.

Some few details from the winebottle to my oldest son 💙
The winebottle in different “environment” 😊.

And of course I wanted to try to made the present so “special” as I can and have the possibility to do,- so I found a bit cool winebox to the painted winebottle too 🎁.

Look ,- a bit cool ,- isn’t it? 💙

And of course I made the favourite chocolate cake I always makes to my children’s birthdays 😊🎁

The chocolate cake/ birthday cake and the birthday gift to my oldest son at his 27 years birthday 🎁💙.
And here you can see the winebottle “all around ” 💙

I should actually painted the winebottle in different violet colours, because that’s my oldest son favourite colour 🎨. But since the kids was small I have “created” things and stuffs, like for example clothes in different blue colours to my oldest, in different green colours to my middle son, and my daughter, – she was a bit “luckier” with the colours because I switched a bit between red, pink and violet in different varieties 😊. So then it became blue winebottle to my oldest son 💙.

And my oldest son has got some different knitted things in different violet colours so I think he know I know what’s his favourite colour anyway, and they all three know I have this “habit” to still give them things “touched” with the colours from their childhood 🥰.

So it’s actually and really 27 years since I became a mammi for the first time today 🥰. It feels incredible, – the time just flies away. I feel so incredibly grateful and lucky, and so proud 💙.

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 😊

It was not easy to put lights inside a not open bottle, so then it became a bit lights around the the bottle instead 💙

Imagen it’s 27 years since I had this tiny little baby boy in my arms and felt so deeply in love 💙. He will probably always in a way be my child no matter how old he is 💙. In my post you will find my birthday gift to him this year, and if you want to take a look, you are welcome to do 🥰.

I have painted too 🎨🍾

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

Of course I have painted winebottles during the Easter too 🎨. Actually I have painted at some canvas as well, but they are not finish yet.

Some years ago I painted a painting on canvas, more and less like a almond tree in bloom 🌸. My daughter’s best friend in Norway “fall in love” with the painting already before it was finished 😊. So, of course, when I was finish with the painting I sent it to Norway to her 😊.

Unfortunately I haven’t any photos from the painting when it was finished, but I still remember “the touch” this painting had, and hopefully still have 🥰. A soft touch of the Spring, and a touch of happiness and joy. I did like the painting very much myself 😊.

“The Almond Tree in Bloom”- under process 🎨

And I wanted to try to “catch” the more and less similar “touch” on a painted winebottle 🎨. So then I did try 😊.

The painted winebottle it’s not quite similar the canvas- but still I need to say I liked it 😊

At the canvas there’s the moon and at the winebottle is the sun. But still its almond flowers, – because it’s this time of the year the beautiful almond flowers are in bloom 🌸.

I’m going to sent this bottle to Norway too, to my daughter’s best friend up there in the north 💛. I’m not sure when it will be posted, and maybe my daughter can bring it to her as well when she is travelling to Norway for holiday next month? Anyway,- a solution will drop by in one or another way 😊.

Here you can see the whole motive all around the winebottle 😊

It was not the easiest bottle I have painted, but it was very fun to do. So maybe there will come some more bottles like this?😊

Some few details in the painted winebottle 🎨

And of course there’s lights in this bottle too. But it looks so much better in “the real life” then with my to not good mobile camera 😊.

The winebottle with lights inside – so much better “live” then on this photos 💡

I need to admit that I like this bottle as well as to paint in a bit different way and direction then many of my others glassbottles I have painted and created 🎨. That’s one of many fun things with create and paint, – I can play with colours and illustrations as I want. Create my own image and imagenation the way I want and suits me “there and then”. And there’s no “correct or wrong” when it comes to art. That feels good too 😊.

I hope my daughter’s friend will have the same joy with this bottle as I had when I painted it, but if course still a joy in two different ways 😊💛.

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

Look at this colorful bottle with a touch of the Spring of almond flowers in bloom 🌸

The Spring time is the time when the beautiful almond flowers are blooming. And I have try to “catch” the soft Spring- feelings the almond flowers gives with their soft colours on a winebottle 🌸.

Happy Valentine’s day 💘

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

It’s already Valentine’s day again, and I feel the last one, last year was closely just around the corner 😊. It’s strange how fast the time goes at the moment. It’s like the days, weeks and months just flys away at the same time as there’s not to much that’s happen….except from corona and Covid19, and all the different restrictions we need to follow because of this. Anc maybe a bit more 😊.

I’m actually not use to “celebrate” Valentine’s day. It took a long time before this day was a day when we gave each other some romantic attention 😊. First time they ( a Norwegian newspaper) tried to give Valentine’s day a kind of attention was in 1887, without to much luck. Then they (this time the mail company) tried to give this day a kind of attention again in 1998 as well as in 1999, also this time without to much luck 💘.

In 2004 70% of the people in Norway still didn’t knew what Valentine’s day was. But in 2010 this day started to be a bit important day for couples. And in 2015 actually 73 % of the people knew what Valentine’s day was 💘.

I’m not sure when I started to give Valentine’s day my attention, but probably one time inbetween 2004 and 2010. In general I haven’t “celebrate” Valentine’s day very much, because in general I have been single this day. But I gave my kids a tiny bit attention when Valentine’s day started to be more popular in Norway. My kids got a tiny card, hearts and chocolate from me. They are anyway my biggest love in my life,- so why not give them a tiny little Valentine’s day attention? 💘

I have got some attention myself now and then like a red rose, a card or a Valentine’s day regards. I have also been invited out for Valentine’s day and when the Valentine’s day arrived my date actually did cancel the invitation and the date 😳.

But last year, last Valentine’s day was actually really, really nice. I was invited out for a cozy and nice dinner, red wine and a red rose and even a bit of attention too 🥰. It was a really nice experience and nice to experience Valentine’s day like that. I think it’s the best Valentine’s day I have experienced so fare in my life,- maybe except from the Valentine’s day when I gave my kids a tiny bit extra attention 🥰. But that’s still different, last year was actually a bit about me. And I did like that, and I hope I maybe will be someone’s special “Valentine” again one day 💘. That would be nice 😊.

This year,- well,- I gave my daughter a tiny bit Valentine’s day attention with giving her a small painting with a painted heart 🎨🧡. It’s actually a bit cool painting I did painted in 2018. So it’s some years ago, but it’s still a cool painting 😌.

The painting I gave to my daughter this Valentine’s day 🥰.

I gave this to her because I think she need a tiny bit more “touch” of the believe in love then her brothers at the moment. But when that’s said, – my daughter is doing incredible well after her bad experiences in December 2020 😊.

I have got two Valentine’s day messenge today,- that was a nice “touch” over the day. The city borders are still closed, but I don’t know if I have been invited on a Valentine’s date today if they had been open.

Me and my daughter has had a nice day today with some work, and some “garden” things. It has been a touch of summer here in South of Spain today, so we have been fixing a bit with the plants and flowers and the patios outside 🌞. No date, no special romantic attention,- but still a very nice, cozy and relaxing day 😊.

I’m not sure why or when Valentine’s day started, but I know about 3 different stories from why, where and when the Valentine’s day started. One story is from the end of 1500. It is a story that the birds began to mate on this day.  Therefore, it has become a romantic marketing on love.  Another story is about a martyr named Valentine who signed his last love letter to his girlfriend with “your Valentine” before he died.  The third story is from the Roman celebration of the goddess Juno representing women and marriage.  And February 14 was the start of a week-long Roman fertility party.

I choose to believe there’s something from every story that has created the inspiration for the “celebration” of Valentine’s day we have today 🥰.

Valentine’s day is about love and romance that’s for sure. It can be the love for your children or a romantic date or attention to and from someone you like a bit extra, have a good eye too 😊.

I hope you are happy with your Valentine’s day with or without any specific romantic attention from anyone 💘. We can create nice days for us self too, even we are single and don’t have anyone special to date or get some romantic attention from 😊.

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 😊

This painting I gave to my daughter today as an Valentine’s day gift is in size 20*20 cm. A sweet, small painting- perfect to my daughter 🥰.

I don’t have any special “my Valentine” this year,- so I gave my daughter a bit attention instead 🥰. A painting with a sweet heart 💘. I hope you all have had a nice Valentine’s day with or without any specific romantic attention or a sweet date 💘. It’s possible to have a nice Valentine’s day even when you are single 😊.
