A tiny basket with a touch of the Norwegian wintertime ❄😊

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

It’s not very much snow and snowflakes during the wintertime South of Spain ❄. But it has been snowing. So fare not this winter, but last winter and actually the winter before that too it did snow for a tiny bit here in the area in South of Spain ❄.

Still the snow wasn’t quite the same as in Norway. Maybe because it felt like to have the beach covered with snow didn’t felt quite correct?

I admit I like the summertime best, but at the same time I need to say there’s something peaceful with the snow, the snowflakes when they are falling slowly from the sky.

And everything seems a bit lighter for a while when the nature is covered with white snow everywhere ❄. And it’s beautiful too.

It’s wintertime in Spain too at the moment, but without this white, soft and so cold and fresh snow. And even I don’t miss the cold, the snow, the Norwegian wintertime it’s still something and sometimes I do miss this peace the snow now and then brought ❄.

So I created me a basket with a touch of the magic wintertime in Norway ❄.

A oil painted basket with some snow crystals and snowflakes ❄.

In general the wintertime in the West coast of Norway wasn’t very magical. Mostly is was rain and wind, and snow that was just lying on the ground for just a tiny bit before it became to ice and in general more coloured up with the grey colour then the white.

But when the snow first stayed for a while and covered the nature in soft white colour, and all the sounds in it’s own way a kind of “disappeared”- then it felt like magic. And I need to admit I now and then do miss that kind of magic during the wintertime here in South of Spain.

I’m not going to bother you today either with a lots of different images and photos and movies from my painted glassbottles- but if you want to take a better look at each and one of them you will find the glassbottles in my Instagram account ArtByLailaS. And of course you are very welcome to take a look 😊.

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 basket with a touch of the magical wintertime in Norway ❄

The wintertime in the West coast of Norway could be magical when the snowflakes was falling softly from the sky and covered the nature with something that felt like cold, soft cotton. I miss that kind of winter magic now and then,- so I tried to create my own winter magic ❄🎨.

A little winter warmth with a “touch” of summer ❄🌞🏖

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

It wasn’t just some glassbottles to some of my aunts and uncles I did sent in the mail up to Norway yesterday. I did also send up a couple of more glassbottles to someone who had and have helped me and my children more then they actually know during this years we have been living in Spain 😊. Something I’m incredibly grateful for.

So I did sent up something warm for the winter with a “touch” of summer ❄🌞.

Two knitt blankets to two young children and a glassbottle with sun, summer and beach ❄🌞
The knitt children blankets and the oil painted winebottle 🧶🎨
And “the beach” all the way around 🏖
Some details from “the beach” 🏖

This is to a family that have helped us, my children and me, with our things and stuffs we still have in Norway 🧡.

And then there’s also someone that have helped us a bit with the mail/ address in Norway,- something we also are incredibly grateful for 🧡.

And they will get some “powerful” red coloured flowers 🥀.

With red flowers 🥀
All the way around 😊
And just some few details 🎨

In general I don’t actually reach the post office on daily basis because it’s open when I’m working, and closed on Saturdays. So when I have some time off, a day for example, I try to manage to do the different things and stuffs I in general not manage during a week- like go to the bank, the post office and other public services or offices that’s just open during the week and at daytime 😊.

I’m not sure when the next day I have off from work and can do different “office things” so I did squeezed in as much “office visits” and other things yesterday I’m not available to do in general in a normal working week 😊.

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 😊

And to “the end”- of course this one too with some lights inside 💡.

In general the different office like the post office, the bank and other public offices are open during the time I’m working 📫. So yesterday I did squeezed in a bit time “here and there” at different offices- but I used most of the time at the post office for sending “a couple” of glassbottles to Norway 😊. And I did send up some “touch” of summer as well as something for the winter ❄🌞.

Maybe a nice surprise to some aunts and uncles? 🎨🌹

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

One week before Christmas I did send up some gifts to my family in Norway. Just painted glassbottles, but still something personal to each and one of them 😊. The gifts are still not arrived to Norway yet 😳,- but I did check with the post office today- so I know they are under transport- phu 😊. Just some delayed delivery with the transport- and that was good to know. The gifts will probably be in Norway next week 😊.

So then I took the chance today and sent up something more- but this time to a couple of aunts and uncles in Norway 😊. Painted, personal and one of a kind – and glassbottles of course 😊.

I have actually in a way 8 aunts and 8 uncles. But that’s not quite correct. My mam have 3 sisters and 3 brothers, and my dad have 2 sisters- and they are all married- so then I in one way have 8 aunts and 8 uncles, but some of them are married into the family 👫. And of course I also have some cousins too.

By the way,- one of my “uncles” did past away some years ago, so it’s 7 uncles and 8 aunts now.

I don’t have contact with them all, not all my aunts and uncles, or my cousins either. But there’s a couple of aunts and uncles I have contact with, and they have always ment something special for me, since I was a child, and I wanted to “show” that to them in form of a personal gift 🎁. Maybe they will like it, maybe not. And they don’t know I have sent anything up to Norway to them either,- so I hope it will be a nice surprise for them 🤞. And if the post office gave me the correct information today, my aunts and uncles will receive their gifts in around 2 or 3 weeks 😊.

This is to one of my aunts and her husband,- I have always “looked at” her husband as my uncle.

This glassbottle represents and remind me about one of my aunt and how happy, sparkling and caring she is. Then it became something in happy colours together with some sparkling effects 😊.

The glassbottle “all the way around” 😊
Just some few details from the glassbottle
And the glassbottle with lights inside 💡

My next aunt is also happy and caring as well as with a soft harmony mind. So then it became something with soft harmony- in a colour I have got an impression that she likes 😊.

Pink painted small roses to my aunt number two, and of course her husband too 😊.
And then “the all around show”- with a bit “shaking” start 😊
Some few details
And of course also with some lights inside 💡

And my third aunt is not my real aunt of blood,- she is married together with one of my mam’s brothers, but she have always felt like a real aunt for me 🧡. She is also gentle and kind, caring and in her own way so powerful,- so then it became a glassbottle with some “powerful colours” 😊.

Look at this glassbottle with the different powerful colours 😊
And of course a tiny “all around look” 😊
Some few details as well

What do you think? Do you think this will be s nice surprise from me to some aunts and uncles I have in Norway? 🎁

I feeling lucky and grateful for having this aunts and uncles in my life,- even it’s “ages” since I saw them 🧡.

I’m going to send up a couple of more glassbottles,- but that will not be before probably during February or March- and then it is to some friends in Norway that I think deserve a tiny bit “special” and personal attention from me. But one thing at the time- it takes a bit of time to paint the glassbottles too 😊🎨. And I think I want to ask my friends two questions before I start working on glassbottles to them,- and that’s their favourite colour and favourite image and illustrations 🖼.

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 😊

And the last one for today- with lights inside 💡

Today I sent up some more oilpainted glassbottles to Norway. This time it was to some aunts and uncles I care for 🧡. So in a couple of weeks I hope they think they get a nice surprise in the mail box from me 🎨😊. If you want to take a tiny look,- you will find the different glassbottles in my text 😊.

To my two sisters, and to my parents as well 😊🎁

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

It’s just not four of my nieces I have sent up some “one of a kind” oilpainted glassbottles too. I have also painted to my two sisters and my parents as well 😊.

I’m the oldest of three sisters, but I need to admit I’m not always feel like that 😅. It seems that both of my sisters have a bit more and better control and overview over their lifes then I have 😅. Anyway that’s the way it is.

My youngest sister’s favourite colour is blue, so then blue it became 🎨. Blue roses 🌹

Some few details from the blue rose glassbottle to my youngest sister 🌹
Snd here you can see the bottle “all the way around “
With lights inside 💡
And the basket “filled” with glassbottles to my youngest sister and her four daughters 🥰.

I forgot to ask my oldest sister about her favourite colour 😳. But I know she like to drink both red wine as well as white wine,- so then if became a white wine glassbottle with red wine grapes 🍇🍷.

Some details from the glassbottle
And also this bottle “all the way around” 😊
And with lights inside too 💡

I didn’t ask my parents about their favourite colour either,- but maybe I paint one glassbottle each to them one day, and then they can get a glassbottle each with their favourite colour. This time it’s just a glassbottle with a touch of soft harmony 😊.

Look at this- just soft harmony – to my parents from me 😊
And of course,- a tiny “all around watch” on this bottle too 😊.

Are you tired of “reading” about my oil painted glassbottles now? 😅 I’m going to give you a break from my bottles after this post,- but it can be a bit “glassbottles- posts” this year- just so you know 😊. But I’m going to give you a tiny break now from “painted glassbottles textes” that actually contains very little text, but instead some photos 🎨.

I still hope you are enjoying my art in one or another way. And I really hope my family in Norway will have some kind joy from this gifts. It’s a personal gift to each of them, unique and one of a kind- just like they all are unique and one of a kind 🥰.

The gifts are still “on the road” on the way to Norway, I’m actually “traking” the post daily to make sure the gifts will arrive safely to each and every one of my family members 🧡. But it have take a big of time, closely 4 weeks since I sent it 😳. But it’s probably delayed because of the “Christmas traffic” with Christmas gifts sent “here and there” 🎁.

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 😊

And some details from the painted winebottle to my parents 😊🎨

My youngest sister’s favourite colour is blue- so then blue it is 🎨. My oldest sister like both red wine as well as white wine- so then it became a “touchy” painted mix of both of it 🍇🍷. And my parents- I’m sending them a lots of love and soft harmony 🌹. Do you want to see? You find the different “creative creatures” in my post 😊.

Maybe it’s time to say Thank you to December and Welcome to January too? 😊❄☃️

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

December is over and we have already both started on a new month as well as a new year 🍾. And that feels very good 😊. So fare January has been peaceful, just the way I hope the rest of the month will be, actually the rest of the year, to be honest 😊.

December- the Christmas- month 🎄. It didn’t quite felt very much like Christmas time this year (either), but it still became Christmas with a tasteful traditional Norwegian Christmas- dinner too 😊. I manage to send some Christmas gifts to my family in Norway this year as well 🎁. And that feels so great.

The Christmas gifts are just something I have made and created to my family, something personal, but it cost a bit to sent it all up to Norway,- and to manage that was one of my goals in December- and I manage that one 😊.

I’m going to show you what I have created to my family in Norway in my next posts 😊.

December was a fine month with some “touch” of stress, but not the “normal” Christmas-stress. I didn’t manage to stress my self up with that one too 😅. Not very much homemade Norwegian Christmas- cakes and cookies this year, not very much Christmas decorations in the home either 🎄. It was what it was,- and I’m fine with that 😊. It became a nice Christmas celebration anyway 😊.

I did manage more and less the different private goals I had for December and I’m happy and grateful for that 😊. Some very few is just a couple of weeks delayed 😊.

So I actually just want to say Thank you December 2021- all in all- it wasn’t to bad at all 😊.

And Welcome to January 2022 🧡. My birthday month actually- but I’m not going to do very much out of my birthday this year either 🎁. And the winter month too. A winter filled with rain or sun, or even maybe snow? It was snowing last year here South in Spain, but I’m not sure if it was in January or February?

At the moment the days are a bit cold, but still sunny, and without any snow ….. and wind 🌞❄.

Some winterbottels I have painted ❄ , they are “sourrende” by sand and not snow 😊

I’m not sure what I can expect from January. I haven’t made to many plans. I think I’m going to focus at my (3 😳) jobs and my painting 🎨. Be a mammi for my daughter, and of course my two sons too 💙, but they are not living in my home so I’m “mammi-ing” for them in a bit different way 😊. And maybe I’m going to socialize a bit with friends too? It haven’t been very much time, or energy, for to much social life the 3 last months during last year 😔. Hopefully there will be a bit more time for that during the next weeks and months 😊.

I can tell you why I have 3 jobs at the moment. My plan was to save up money to different things I both need and want. But as most of you know I suddenly got an extra month to feed in October, so my extra money has been to help my daughter as much as I could. Now, maybe, I can have the possibility to put away some extra cents, even euro to and for myself? 😊

But to be able to get and have extra money I also need to work a bit extra. My costumer service agent job on the phone- (that’s my real job)-, do cover all my living expenses like houeserent, household, food and so on. So then to try to manage to save up some extra money I have 2 different freelance jobs as well 😊.

I need to go to the dentist, so there’s one “saving goal”, and it would be nice to be able travel to Norway too. I really miss my middle son and it could be nice to visit him. I also want to get our last things in Norway moved to Spain, and a couple of more things too, I want to do. But then I need to work a bit extra so I can be able to do some, or maybe even all of it 🥰.

Like I mention in my last post,- at the moment I just take things a bit day by day, and week by week. I didn’t manage to do to much of all the different plans I had for 2021, so I start a bit careful with not to many and to much plans this year, and then see how things goes and take it from there 😊. But of course I have some different plans and goals, I just don’t take the chance to do to much out of it yet 😊. Or tell or talk about it to much either, because I know thing can change fast and different challenges can “show up”, and then I need to change and reorganize my plans and focus a bit too.

At the moment things seems to be peaceful in January, but I don’t know what can “show up ” or happen 😊. But still January 2022 is very welcome with the different suprices of different kinds, but hopefully not to much and many at the moment 🤞😊. And I really like to write 2022- I’m not sure why- but it feels just so great to write it ✒.

I wish you all a wonderful January- and I will try my very best to drop by with more textes this year then I did last year 🤞✒😊.

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 bit more painted snowflakes on bottles ❄. My wintertime bottles 😊❄

So fare January has been soft, nice and peaceful- and I really hope this will continue 🧡. December 2021 was what it was,- but after all not to bad at all 😊🎄. So Thank you and Goodbye December, and Welcome to January, one of the winter months and so fare a good start on the new year ❄.
