RUSTLING EMERALD GREEN



Last summer I was visiting my brother for one week. While he was working, I was building his birthday gift, an evergreen tree, on his wall. Some days it was hot and I had my tea breaks on his balcony. Some days were very cold and I wore his huge woolen socks while painting.

Even it is hot today, I am wearing woolen socks, the best socks ever, knitted by my grandmother. She called me yesterday and told me that she had seen good looking strawberries by the square market. "Me too", I said. She had passed them, as she thought that the best ones come from my parent´s fields. "Me too", I said. Then she had seen some peas. "Me too!" She could not pass them. "Me neither," I said.

It is wonderful to read all your comments, thank you for saying hello and playing the game of give away! It is still open for one day, so is the shop.

Evening greetings,
see you tomorrow!

    Ihana idea ja huippu toteutus! Minä niin tykkään tuosta ja tästä sinun sääpäiväkirjastasi... Löysin tänne sattumalta ja olen aivan ihastuksissani! Vielä kun tunnistin sinut...

  7. So lovely! I painted a tree on my friend's wall once also, and then I was always jealous that I didn't have it on my own :) Loving your work, as always...

  9. I have a good friend who uses only 3 Crayola crayons on his walls. I don't know if I would have the guts to do it. I suppose I would just have to do it and not judge it until I was done. Yours is looking beautiful.

  11. Aivan ihana seinämaalaus! Uskon, että veli oli tyytyväinen. Hieno idea.

    Täältä ei saa herneitä torilta. Saispa! Niitä vois nyt napsia.

    Kivaa juhannusta sinulle :)

  17. in january, i bought lovely sage green cashmere socks from edinburgh, and just this morning realized i'm still wearing them to bed mid-summer.
    i never ever put mittens away for storage either.

    bought the first strawberries today but i'm holding out for my balcony peas...
