Gooliope!

by , in
It is Friday and weekend is here! I am sitting here after our dinner, pasta carbonara, and just surfing the net. The girls have survived the week at school and hubby is still at work - he will be home later this evening. 

On Wednesday I took the bus to the city with the girls. The younger one had her lesson at the theatre and the older one wanted to come with, because she had seen a t-shirt at H&M that she wanted. Luckily she found it. I was on a hunt too. Had not so much hope to getting lucky, but it is almost always fun to go looking in shops.

It was about 6 months ago I saw the Monster High Gooliope Jellington at Toys r us and my first thought was that she is huge! That day I just looked around and made some future plans when it comes to the collection I have with Monster and Ever After. But after that this Gooliope have grown in my mind and when we came home from the cottage I started to look after her in stores, mostly on the internet. 
She can not hide!
Sold out. Nothing in stock. Nothing at the supplier. So, I thought that she will not be in my collection. It felt rather sad, but I gave it a last try in the city knowing that I have two toy stores there. At the first one, they had almost nothing and surely no Gooliope. Tired after being in the city for some hours walking around and shopping other things (thread, limo and so on) I said to my oldest daughter that let's take a look at the odd toyshop and....
She is home
....lucky me! There she was! But just a few! And on sale! What a feeling. Contacted my hubby and said that I found her! Oh my, buy! was his answer! 

You will meet her, again, later on.

Meet Pierrette Fayanna

by , in


Confidence. Trust. Belief.

This is Pierrette Fayanna, with a deep inner desire to create and to express herself and she prefer a public role when she does her magic. She is competent and have big dreams. But those dreams come in second hand, because she has to focus on her role in the crazy circus called Circus Lunaire.

A walk and a photo shoot in the forest

by , in
There is nothing more soothing for soul, mind and body to just walk in the forest and enjoy what ever you see, hear and smell. One step, one breath and then one photo. This interest of mine combined with the tendency to get lost - even in my own navel, can be rather hazardous. I have not feeling of directions or were is left and right, north and south. I can wander and easily get lost. And as proof, I say that I got lost in a small town called Hjo. I had to phone my husband and he had to guide me, so I found the place I had an appointment at. So embarrassing. 
Someone chopped onions with the ax.
Zipporah found Lingonberries.
Well, gladly I had my husband along when I took a walk in the nearby forest. He sat on a smaller pier and I could see him when I wandered of with Zipporah on my arm. He suggested that I could take one of the dolls with me, we could take a road trip (we just loove those road trips, yes) and we could have some nice hours in the nature. We had luck with the weather too - sunshine and rather warm. Today and for the rest of the week it will rain! Rain and rain and rain. But that is September. In a way I do not mind the rain and the darkness. I embrace it.

All those small roads in the forest,
just make me want to wander of.

I have picked up my sewing machine. I would love to get some time over for sewing new clothes for Esther, Zipporah and Noomi. Have to plan that and find some patterns. I managed to write a pattern for a knitted short sleeved jumper that I am pleased with. So much counting and measuring! I found some lovely yarn at the cottage, so I took that with me home. 
She is so cute, even without any hair. I am glad
that I could get here, as she is a LE.
The ordinary life has started. Kids at school and all such things. Hope that you have a marvelous start in this new month! Autumn is here!
