Trying new things..

Lately I have been playing with some old photo´s and some new editing. I have completely fallen in love with textures and brushes, and the freedom it gives you. It feels like I am creating again. Something I have longed for for so long!


A stroll around the Charity shops..

The boys and I went in to town today, to have a little look around the Charity shops. The love it too, but mostly because of all the books and toys:)
I found some great things today! Some days there´s just nothing to be found, and other days you get lucky. One of the shops was unfortunately closed when we got there, but I HAVE to go back in in the morning, as I saw something nice through the window;)
Have a look at my finds


Ohh and then my parcel came today as well! Look at the beauties that arrived
Oh how i LOVE retro...

What a great give away!


Is it a plane.. A bird... NO it´s the DANE! I am BACK :)

Helloooooo! My goodnes it has been a long time since I have done any blogging what so ever! Sorry about that (in case there is actually someone out there who looks at my page lol)..
So much has happended in my life, all positive things!
I have now got myself a lovely business partner who I have started a Photography business with (can´t stop jumping up and down with glee)
She has worked in Marketing and she was just what I needed! We are a brilliant team, and I am forever grateful of doing what I love the most (and even getting paied for it too) he heee yay
If you feel like taking a look at my website then here´s the link www.lonerosephotography.com

I have been driving for almost a year now and I LOVE it! Ahhh the Freedom.... sigh! Nothing better than putting  on radio one, Chris Moyle´s show in the morning, and have a good laugh by yourself. I wonder what I look like from the outside..

At home, we have had the whole of upstairs redone, it looks great! I will post some photo´s when we´ve had our new bed delivered etc. Right now it´s just empty. Empty but Gorgeous!
We are also in the middle of having our new kitchen fitted, but unfortunately there´s a "few" problems with that and the  kitchen fitter left 2 weeks ago (without finishing our Kitchen!) Anyway, it´s going to look amazing once it´s done!

My eldest son, Noah, needs glasses now (he squints).. We´re picking them up today and then the "battle" begins, of getting him to wear them!

Oh oh oh, and I have come off my antidepressants!!!!! Woohoo to me :) I started to forget to take them, so I figured I might aswell try quitting it. So I did!
Although the meds have really helped me SO MUCH, I do feel like I have just stepped out of a bubble. A very soft and protective Bubble. I can suddenly feel everything again, my sensitivity has come back and I really enjoy it. I notice all the small things that I used too. Sparkly dust flying around in the sunshine, smells of Spring coming, Beautiful cloud formations.. ahhhh.. Loverly..
I also suddenly had a wave of creativity come over me, and I have been sewing and drawing again. I will show you a bit of what I have done in the last few days (it´s not much, but it´s just great to be back)
2 pairs of Trousers for Emil, and the foot stool from IKEA had a new coat of Paint and some retro fabric put on (I am so chuffed with that one) Fabric is SO much better to use that paper!



One last thing.. Look at my 2 gorgeous boys fast asleep <3

The power of now.

Is the title of a very good book I am currently reading, written by Eckhardt Trolle. It´s hard to explain in a few words what it is about, but I can definately say it changes your way of thinking!
The book is about how to really learn to live in the now, and thereby avoid a life full of unnecessary worry. He talks about how most people today only identify themselves with their mind and forget to really see the beauty and magic in nature etc.
When you DO learn to let go of all your thoughts, and really dive into the now, you will feel amazing for a brief moment (as you get better at it it will last for longer of course). Well I had one of those moments the other day, and that´s what I wanted to share with you.

We were at some friends house having a barbeque. The sun was shining, the kids were playing and the adults were chit chattering. I was stood in the middle of it all, not participating in any of it, just watching, taking it all in.. Suddenly I noticed a hoverfly just in front of me. It stood still in the air, then it moved off very quickly but came back again and again. It did this a few times but then it stopped just in front of my face. The sun was shining from behind it and gave it a beautiful light - I could see the fuzzy body and the wings looked like they were glowing. It was sooooo beautiful, and when it happened it was like the world stood still! I had no thoughts, all became silent, peacefull and still. It might sound silly to you, but it was amazing to me! Now it´s just a memory, but I intend to have many more of those "enlightenments".

That brings me to a photo I took today, of a bubble. My kids looove bubbles and so do I!
These fragile but stunning soap wonders fly off in the wind - glowing, shining in the colours of the rainbow, only here for a brief moment, but loved by everyone.
I always feel like I want to take one and keep it or push the pause button and walk around it, admiring its beauty.. Well today i succeded in getting a picture of one before it was forever gone. Now I can always look at it and get that happy feeling in my tummy :)
If you love bubbles too, then feel free to stare at this photo as much as you like :)

I forgot to show you..

My latest summer dress. It was a gift for one of Noah´s pre School friends. I really hope she likes it!

Lullaby owl... again!

Here comes the sun... Here comes a new baby - very soon! This owl is flying to Denmark very soon. I hope he will land in a loving new nest :)
