Salty face, splashes of the sea in the wind. Sandwiches filled with pecan nuts, green bell pepper, onion, olives and sweetest cucumber in a small grey backpack. Mind is still on this small island (and ears still hear the wind and the roars of the sea), hands painting on a satin cotton paper.

Have a pleasant weekend with a strawberry cake!


  1. hi anna, is this you at the 3rd pic? - so cute:)

  13. Hello,

    I found my way here for the first time just as you went off on holiday, but I loved what I saw... gorgeous paintings and photos and everywhere lovely airy, sea-ish colours... too lovely! I just wanted to say hello. I hope your travels were as lovely as they look to have been.

  14. Hello dear Lotte,

    That is me hiding under a big scarf from the noon sun (: Feeling the happiness of travelling is very nice, hopefully you can dream of nice places and can reach them too!

    Hei kultainen Liivia,

    Nämä on Kanarian saarten Fuerteenturasta, löysimme sieltä mukavan salaisen rannan.
