Have I told you ...

Have I told you ... by Landanna

Over the last few weeks I have been thinking, jotting down notes and writing with Lisa about a new project. Had two false starts, chose the wrong material to work on but I have the feeling that I'm finally on my way again. Which means I have something to share again. Have a wonderful day with a lot of stitching. Elizabeth

Just have to share this with you

Why, oh why

do I live in a house of brick

when

each time my heart melt, breaks and comes to live again

by looking

at the warmth of wood touched by hands so capable.

Thanks Julie for sharing!

Have a wonderful day.

Another card

Now and again there is a sentence whirling around in my mind, sometimes it end up on a scrap of paper that is laying beside my bed or in my notebook. There is a sentence that turns up time and again lately. Maybe because of the little reminders, like this one, this one or this piece of music and then again maybe none of them, maybe I'm just reading too much newspapers. Anyway, a new card is made with the sentence and it gives us something to ponder over a little bit more.

Monday's music

Last week my favorite movie turned up twice in a conversation. Once is a beautiful movie filled with a passion for music and therefore I want to share it with you today.

Monday's music

Last week I was a little bit early to pick up my little one and I heard some music. It sounded so beautiful that I had to find out where it came from. Silently I walked in a schoolconcert, the children were all sitting very still totally captured by a gorgeous voice. Today I want to share that experience with you.



Have a wonderful start of your week.

Carl Gustaf Bernardson

Målning av CG Bernhardson 

While being in Götenborg last year I visited Bohusläns Museum and saw these gorgeous paintings of Carl Gustaf Bernardson. He lived from 1915 til 1998 and was a Swedish folkpainter. After he died his 526 paintings were given to Bohusläns Museum. Unique for his paintings is that he wrote on the backside of each painting with a pensel about the scene he had painted.

What I liked about these paintings were the subtle colors and especially how he painted the blue sky, the water and snow.

More information about his life is available but only in Swedish, here is the link and you can also see more paintings by just one click. (Scroll down and click on one of the red words.) If you have the chance to visit Bohusläns Museum I promise you, you will be surprised by their collection.

Have a beautiful day filled with inspiration.

Monday's music

We all drink to forget
Some of us more than most
When reality gets too real
And the fires of hell to close
But I'm here to let you know that
That you can make it through
If you believe that someone is watchin' over you

And call it an angel
Call it a muse
And call it karma that you've got comin' to you
What's the difference
What's in name
What matters most is never ever losin' faith
'Cause it's gonna be alright
You're not alone tonight

We all have our days
When nothing goes as planned
Not a soul in the world
Seems to understand
And for someone to talk to
You'd give anything
Well go on and cry out loud
'Cause someone's listenin'

Yeah, and call it an angel
Call it a muse
And call it karma that you've got comin' to you
What's the difference
What's in name
What matters most is never ever losin' faith
'Cause it's gonna be alright
You're not alone tonight

Keep your faith alive
You're not the only one

Yeah, and call it an angel
Call it a muse
Call it karma that you've got comin' to you
What's the difference
What's in name
What matters most is never ever losin' faith
Yeah, you're gonna be alright
You're not alone tonight

Oh you can cry if you want to, go on 



Have a great start of your week.

Embroidery of children

Today I have some pictures for you which I forgot to post but are simply to lovely to be kept in hiding.

 
The two embroidery pieces made by two children hung also in the Bohusläns Museum. I visited this museum last year while we were in Sweden.
.

Hope you are gonna have some wind in your sails today.
