To two of my neighbours 🏘😊🎨

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

Like some of you know I’m moving from the house that has been my children and my home during closely 7 years. Something that means that we also have had some good neighbours during this 7 years too 😊.

It’s mainly three neighbours I have had the best contact with, a couple and a man, and I really want to give them some thing for a good neighbour relation 🎨. And then it became some painted winebottles ( of course) 😅🎨.

I was actually not sure if I was going to manage finish the winebottles before I’m moving, but I actually did. Well, closely,- the painting in one of the bottles is still not totally dry. Hopefully it will try a bit during the next days.

But I started on two different winebottles first with different decorations, imagine and illustrations then the results is now. I had a imagination in my mind about what I wanted to paint, but when I was halfway the illustrations was not “correct”, (if I can explain it that way,) for the persons I’m going to give this bottles to. So then it was to start over again on two new bottles 😊🎨. And now they are the way I want them to be 😊.

One of the winebottle I’m going to give to one of my “old” neighbours 😊

The couple I have painted a winebottle too is a married couple. She is from UK and he is from Spain. They have a country house too, where they have different vegetables and fruits, and even hens. And I have got so much fruits, vegetables and eggs from then during this years, so I really want to give something back.

Well,- they have got something now and then like homemade cakes and cookies. Made by Norwegian recipe. And I have also knit a bit to them like hat, scarf and elf- socks 🧶.

They have two grandsons too, and I have knit hat and scarf to the boys as well 😊.

I like to give, and I like to show the people around me that I really presage them and also what they give me,- if it’s friendship or/ and fruits 😊.

This is to the married couple- 3 red roses with lights inside 🌹

I have packed this plate I use to turn the bottles around with. So it is what it is at the moment. But I hope you still will get a kind of impression how it looks like?

It’s this red roses winebottle that still have to dry a bit. Hopefully the next days will help a bit 😊.

A bit more from the red roses winebottle
And just some details 😊.

My other neighbour is living very close to me. He is Spanish, and he work as a policeman in Spain. We are actually living like “wall to wall”. I don’t think it’s possible to live closer to someone without living together in the same house.

I know his favourite colour is blue so then it became a winebottle with “the touch of blue” 😊.

The winebottle to my closest neighbour 😊

He has helped me a lot with different things in my home as well as actually been together with me to the doctor when I needed a translator. ( my family doctor speaks “andalucia” and he speaks incredibly fast too, so I have big problems with understand him 😅). And he has made olive oil to me and drove me “here and there” as well when I needed a driver now and then.

We was also close in the intim way for closely 3 years. More maybe like “friends with benefit”. But it was the 3 first years I was living here. The four last years we have just been neighbours. But….he has started flirting a bit with me again..(and yes I do flirt back a bit too- it’s actually a bit nice with the attention)… So maybe when I have moved into my new home we can be a bit “friends with benefit” again? We see what’s happen in that area- but to be honest, I don’t think I will mind to much to have him as a “friend with benefit” again. I see what’s happen. Im mot stressing “this” flirting at all. At the moment my focus and energy are work and moving 😊. ( ….but I’m still “allowed” to dream…😉).

Some details from the blue coloured winebottle 🎨.

The winebottles I started on, I still have them, and I’m going to finish them both as well. But probably not before I have moved.

And, – I have painted a bit more then this 4 winebottle during the last closely 6 weeks. Like I mention in a text for probably a month ago,- I wanted to give something back to Natasja too, just to show her how much I presage the opportunity for renting their holiday apartment. And I mention it could be in the colours of pink as well as “contain” winebottle or bottles 😉. But I needed to ask her first if “it” could be a gift she wanted. And she did…..I’m not telling very much more today, but I will tell you and show you when I’m finish 😊🎨.

Of course pink bags to Natasja 😅- but the gift is not quite finish yet, but soon 🎨

So as you can see,- inbetween packing and eating and sleeping and working during the last 6 weeks I have also been painting 🎨😊. It’s a incredibly good “timeout” for me to just paint and “calm down” a bit inbetween, better then I actually thought 😊.

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 as soon as possible 😊

The two winebottles I started on to my neighbours- they are not finish and the creations became “wrong” for the ones I wanted to give the bottles too 😊. They are going to be gifts to someone else when they are finish 😊.

I’m actually a bit surprised over myself and how much I have manage to paint during the last 6 weeks 🎨. But obviously it gives me more effective “timeout” and energy “refill” then I thought 😊. And the “Thank you for being so good neighbours”- gifts are closely finish and ready for “delivery” 🎨😊.

Oh, I got more glassbottles and I didn’t need to drink the wine either 🍾🥂😊

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

Like some of you know I like to paint on glassbottles like for example winebottles, beerbottles , cavabottles and a bit more 🎨. But since I don’t drink different kinds of alcohol very much myself I can have a tiny challenge to actually get different kinds of glassbottles to paint on 🍾.

My daughter did actually had a back bag with her on the New Year Party she was at in the new year evening 2020/ 2021😅. And brought home different kinds of glassbottles to me 😊. But my basket with glassbottles are starting to get empty again 😳. Then what to do?Start drinking a lot or send my daughter to a new party with a back bag on her back? Or actually invite my best friend Natasja to visit me and ask her to bring some empty winebottles from her cafe in La Cala? 😍 I invited Natasja 😊.

Look at my soon empty glassbottles basket 😳😊

It’s not totally true that I actually invited Natasja to visit me so I could get more winebottles. It’s over 3 months since we had met, and I really do miss her. And at the moment the city borders are open, so I invited her to visit me for a nice chatt before the Easter is showing up and the city borders are closing down again for the Easter. And I also wanted to give her the glassbottles I have painted to her 🎨. Hopefully we can met up a bit more then every 3 month after the Easter 🥰.

It was after I had invited her it actually did dropped my mind that maybe she could have some empty glassbottles of different kinds after her guests in her cozy cafe. And she had,- actually a bag of empty glassbottles to bring me 😊. And PS,- if you are in Spain and La Cala, – it’s worth to visit the cafe Case Barella for some great and tasty food, good drinks and a very cozy atmosphere 🍔🍷.

I’m very happy for all the empty glassbottles I got from Natasja, but I’m more grateful for the visit 🥰. It was so nice to see her again, hug her, chatt up, just spend some really good quality time together 😊.

It’s strang how this corona- situation has changed out social needs. Not the habits, but our needs. Our social habits are in so many ways controlled by different restrictions, something that also, of course, changes our social needs. But I should think and believe that we would get an ever stronger and bigger need to “meet up” when we had the chance? But it’s actually not quite like that for many people. It’s, unfortunately, the opposite. For many, including me, and some of my friends too, it’s more difficult to “move my ass” from my sofa and home and socials then it was before the corona- situation.

I’m not sure why it’s became like this, because it maybe should be, like I mention, the opposite? It can be different reasons like use of mask, or worries for the coronavirus? I don’t know.

But I know I’m very grateful that Natasja wanted to visit me 🧡. It was so great to see her again and talk about about “all and everything”, and actually not to much about the coronavirus. It’s really good to take a break from that “subject” now and then. And we are good to take a break from it and find some other, better and more interesting subjects to talk about instead 😊. I’m so grateful for having her in my life and for this vist and “timeout” 🥰.

And now I can take my own break too from the “corona- situation” and “drop” down in more winebottles and paint and create and be creative 🎨.

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 😊

Look at this,- a bag filled up with empty glassbottles or different kinds – just ready to get some new illustrations from me 🎨

My basket with glassbottles is starting to get empty, but after a lovely visit from one of my best friends my basket is filled up again with a lots of possibility for me to be creative 🎨. But the best thing was still the visit, a great “timeout” with good chatts, laughter and great conversations together with my friend 🥰.

A fairytale blue flowers forest 🧚‍♀️🌲🧚‍♂️

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

I’m finish with another glassbottle and this one is actually not painted to any special or specific one. No friends or no family 😊. I just painted it in between my other glassbottles when I was waiting for the paint to dry a bit 🎨.

I have been thinking a bit about maybe paint some glassbottles for sale too, not just to give away as present to people I care about 😊. And even give the different bottles a name or title?

I have remember to number most of the different glassbottles I have painted and give away. In case I became “rich and famous” on day 🤭. I have even a book I’m writing down the numbers and the name to whom has got the different bottles from me 😊. But I need to admit I was a bit lazy with this “kind of work” and numbers at my first glassbottles because I didn’t knew I was going to enjoy the painting at glassbottles as much as I do. And I had no imagination that I should been painting so many as I have done so fare 😊.

I have also been thinking about create a bit more different and a bit more creative photos to my glassbottles then I have done so fare. At the same time as I like to try to show how the bottles looks like in the light and also with lights inside 💡. The colours and design, the motives and illustrations. But it could be a bit boring to just use the white background all the time, at the same time as the white background gives in general the more “correct” colours. But today I did try out a bit other background with the glass bottle I’m calling “A fairytale blue flowers forest” 🧚‍♂️. It looks good, doesn’t it?

“A fairytale blue flowers forest”- size 25 cm high and 24 round 😊. Nr. LS AB 022

I think the name suits this winebottle perfectly 😊. In my imagination it looks like a fairytale blue flowers forest 🌲🥀. And I did really enjoy to paint it to 🎨.

Some few details from the winebottle 🎨

I like to try to paint different illustrations and images on my glassbottles as well as canvas. But often I’m “ending up” with flowers of any kind, or heart in different ways, settings , “shapes” and forms 🧡. I’m actually not sure why, and I’m actually not stressing to find any “why” either 😊. It is what it is,- and I have a great time when I’m painting 🎨. It’s relaxing and it makes my mind fly away, and it’s a kind of timeout for me too.

The winebottle around and around and around,- so you get a better imagination how it looks like 😊

Look how different at the same time “similar” the bottle is in different lights and “settings”. Pretty cool? 😊

The bottle with anx without sun, as well as with and without lights inside 💡

I actually really like my “A fairytale blue flowers forest”. It makes me smile and takes me to a nice and cozy fairytale where things are just relaxed and peaceful. What do you think? Does my winebottle looks like “A fairytale blue flowers forest” for you? Or does it create some other imaginations in your mind? 😊

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 😊

“A fairytale blue flowers forest” in the dark evening and with lights inside- nice?😊

Then pink it is 🎨😊

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

It’s often during hard and difficult time and situations we really see, feel and experience who our real friends are. And during December 2020 I did see who really was my daughter’s friends. Not all of them, but some of the closest she has here in Spain. She have some great and close friends in Norway too. And also a couple more here in Spain, but there’s two young women that has been around my daughter a bit more then others during the lasts months 😊.

The circumstances my daughter was in during December is not something she has shared with “all and everyone”, but I was allowed to write about it from my point of view as a mammi during a situation like that. And she also went to some good friends of her here in Spain for some great and supporting conversations 💛.

Like I mention, there’s special two of her friends that’s has taken a bit extra good care for my daughter during the lasts months, and I wanted to share my gratefulness for being there for her during a not the easiest period in her life. So I have painted one bottle each to them, and in pink. Because both of her friends favourite colour is pink 🎨.

Two painted winebottles with a “touch” of pink 🎨

I like to give, give people I care about something that shows them how grateful I’m for having them in me and my children’s life in some or another way. To give I don’t necessarily mean give gifts. It can be serving a nice meal, or just let them feel very welcome in my home with some tasty snacks and good drinks and good conversations, or let them borrow my air if they need to talk, give a good hug, or some other kind of attention. But it can also be small gifts like a painting, a knitted scarf or a painted glassbottle. It’s depends a bit on the different situations and also the people I’m together with.

I like to share and show that I presage my friends and family. I’m not good enough to show how much I care about my family in Norway, but there’s some suprices for them all “under process” too 🥰.

And I really wanted to share this two young women, my daughter’s friends who my I presage the time they have spent together with my daughter the lasts months 🧡. Anc then it became too oil painted winebottles with a touch of pink colour 🎨.

The same painted winebottle with lights inside 🕯.

One of her friends have also been “babysitting” my daughter a couple of times during the last months 😅. Sounds probably a bit strange since my daughter is actually 20 year old 😊. But I had just started my own “travel” in my own life when my daughter moved back home in a hurry, and I just needed a tiny bit time alone during this time as well. A bit “adult- time”, a bit just “Laila- time”. Sounds maybe a bit selfish, but I think maybe someone who already has been through the “children- moving- out” process and actually did like their new adult time and the life on their own, know what I’m mean, without being a bad mammi 😊.

One of my daughter’s friend got also some knitted stuff like a hat, scarf and elf- sock. And her dog got a blanket and a scarf too 😊. As “Thank you” for “babysitting” my daughter 😊.

My daughter has no hard feelings for this “babysitting” situation 😊. We had talked about this, and we both needed a bit time a part from each too 😊. It’s just a bit fun to call it for “babysitting”, because I have actually asked for a tiny bit time “off” for being a mammi and time for just be me, the adult me where just my “needs” was in focus for a tiny bit while 😊. And a timeout from being a mammi create me also to a better mammi 😊. Even when the children are young adults 🧡.

The other winebottle without any lights inside 😊 This is to a young woman called Cecillie 🎨
The winebottle with lights inside 🕯. Not the best video, but better then nothing 😊.

I hope you too have some great people, family and friends in your life you know are there, will be there for you,- special during difficult times, as well as good times 🧡.

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 😊

Then it became two pink painted winebottles for two of my daughter’s close friends here in Spain 💛. Because I wanted to show them how much I presage the time they have use together with my daughter during a bit challenging time for her 💚.

A small glass bottle exhibit 🎨😊

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

I’m finish with 4 different glassbottles to a very good friend of my, Natasja. I’m not sure when I will be able to give them to her, because she lives and work in another town then me and the border between the cities are closed at the moment. The borders are not closed in emergency situations or if someone need to go to work between the cities borders, but except from that they are bit closed for the rest of us.

I have already shared the videos and photos of the glassbottles with Natasja 😊. So she knows what she gets before I share it with you 😊. I think that was the most correct thing to do 😊.

The first one I was finish with- and eith lights in the bottle.
The bottle without lights

So today there will be less text and more videos to share with you from me 😊. But now you can see some of my leisure activities with oil painting on glassbottles. It takes a bit time, it’s a bit of a process, but I’m really enjoying this way to paint 😊.

Nr 2 – tiny small glassbottles with lights inside
Nr 2 without lights inside

I started to paint on all the bottles in the middle of December 2020, but they was not finish at the same time. It’s depends on the size of the bottle s well as the image or illustrations I’m painting. And oil painting also take a bit time to dry.

The third glass bottle without lights inside

It’s not always I wait to the painting is dry before I continue painting. It’s depends a bit what I have in mind with the colours, the mix of colours and the different illustrations on the glass bottle.

The third glassbottle became a bit different, from the rest. But difference is a bit cool I think. Because we all are different, but still so colourful in our own way 😊.

The fourth and last one without any lights inside

The fourth glassbottle took a bit longer time to finish even it actually was not a big bottle. It was the flowers that took a bit time to paint. To get the correct structure and colours I wanted them to have. But now all four glassbottles are finish and ready for a new home, Natasja’s home, as soon as the city borders open up again 😊.

Natasja has actually now 5 glassbottles painted by me, and all are feeled up with a lots of love, joy, happiness and good thoughts from me to her. I filled the bottles with this when I painted them all 🥰. Like I general do when I paint something to someone 😊. Because I’m enjoy painting and I in general like the people I’m painting to it’s very easy to paint with joy and happiness and fill it all up in the bottle 😊.

Here are the four glassbottles sample together in a photo 😊 The fifth is in Natasja’s home already. I gave it to her last summer 🌞

You probably need to be “prepared” that there will come more postes and textes like this with my art 😊. A tiny art exhibition now and then of different kinds, both glassbottles and canvas 🎨. I have more under process and production, – actually 12 more glassbottles at the moment 😅. So I’m really not bored that’s for sure 😊. And it’s a perfect time for doing this painting too, because we live like we do at the moment because of the corona- situation. And I’m really enjoying painting 🎨. It gives me joy and happiness in its own way 😊.

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 😊

All four glassbottles together- around and around so you can get a better impression of them 😊.

4 oil painted glassbottles are now finish, filled up with love and joy, happiness and a lots of good thoughts to one of my best friends 🥰. And they are ready for delivery as soon as the city borders open up again in our area 😊. And you are very welcome to take a look, visit a tiny little art/ glassbottles exhibition in my post today 😊.
