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 😊🧶.

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 🌊🏝😊.

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?😊

Does my winebottle looks like “A fairytale blue flowers forest” for you? Or does it create some other imaginations in your mind? 😊 (ps- it’s more photos inside my text 😊)
