I health has been real bad during last Autumn, Winter and Spring. I started to recover on February and now I’m in a quite good condition. Not able to do crafts yet, but playing my favorite on-line game by IGG is possible.

This is one of my characters in the game.

So now I can also update my blogs one by one. Kitties are fine and Ari too. Summer was quite cool and rainy so we came early back home.

I will be taking photo’s from kitties and flower’s I brought home from our Summer house.

I hope all my friends are well and happy.

On the 1 of June we visited my friend Minttu at Loppi near Helsinki. It was nice to see her and see how beautiful finish countryside looks. Summer is so beautiful and green here.

Minttu has this lovely flowerpot on their steps. Those wood seem so cool beside the flowers.

This old storehouse is at their yard. This is typical for old finnish farmhouses. There slept workers at summertime and there they stored linen and clothes in the old days.

The view from the yard is beautiful and green. There is a small river nearby.

The river makes a little pond.

There is a sauna near the water. This seems like everyones dream here in Finland.


Minttu gave me a beautiful needlepillow.

and two cross stitch magazines.

this one with that beautiful little sailing boat and

this with cute Christmas patterns.

I got also a bag full off oat grains so that I can make me a pillow that can be warmed and put to my aching shoulders. I have some linen towel that I inherited from my mom and I plan to make it from those towels.


We moved to our summerhouse! June 8, 2007

We moved to our summerhome on Saturday. At first there were only Ari and me. As we had to cut the grass from our yard before we could take our kitties with us.

here Ari is cutting the grass with our new second hand lawnmower.

Here are the wooden storcks the live on our yard.

There is also a stone cat that watches over us.


He looks very angry.

There is also another cat that says Welcome. It was broken until I fixed it on Sunday.

I also toned it abit as I changed the way this welcome was attached to my wedding present cat.

I also toned ourĀ  windchim that had broken. This isn’t just what I wanted…. next time I will change it a little more.


Yesterday when we came home I found a package inside and that made me so happy. Now I have beads for necklaces and Finmollies for the summer as the store here goes for vacation.

Here’s another photo from them.


I also heard from Wendy that Vanessa has gotten my little angel and that she loved it.

I think I will take some beads to our cottage so that I can make those little angels for others too.

Today started with an energy to clean my beadcorner. Yesterday I cleaned my computer corner as Ari my hubby made changes to my beading table. So today I wanted to make it as I want it to be. It need more toning during time…. Even so this is better than good for me.

This is the left side of my corner and my view out.

this is how it looks on the right side.

This is on the left side of my table and there is still room for boxes. I only must buy more of them and I will get them in time.

These shelves are for me and my beading stuff. I have also four drawers on the left side of my table.

Here is my old keyboard self in new use. Help to keep my works in process out of Welho’s reach.

Here is my new silver solding that I bought on Friday.

I got this from Ari last week as he found it at a shops sell off. I have been dreaming of this vice for a long tima and I’m real happy to have it now.

I have been wanting to get a cleaner for my solding iron. It’s always been out of reach for some reason or other. Last week I sent Ari to get us a cleaner pads called Pata-pata. They have the claning sollution in them. Ari borought me two steel casting balls. I wasn’t glad at that moment.

Last night as I was solding again I thought that a cleaning pad would be so easy sollution to help me. I desided to get one. Then I remembered those balls. Espesially the one not used yet. I could use it.

Would I have a small dish for it. I did look from my mothers things and found a little candle holder that was just the right size.

So here it is a real luxus cleaner pad for my solder.
This candle holder is made from pressed crystal.
