It's a windy but sunny here today
weather is constantly changing
but no matter what
I'm in summer feelings
and I associate color red with summer season
cherry red, strawberry red, red roses...
here is what I found from my Flickr contacts today

What are the colors you connect to summer season?

Welcome Monday!

We got a beautiful, warm weekend
I enjoyed the sun in the garden
Today is very rainy but of course
the nature loves rain so I'm not complaining

Tonight I have a chance to see Yann Tiersen
Did you see the movie Amélie?
Yann Tiersen composed the theme for this film
I loved the movie and the music as well
Looking forward to tonight's show in Helsinki!

Happy Friday

Hello Friday!

Looks like it will be a lovely and sunny weekend here
can't wait to do some gardening and enjoy outdoors life
I've been thinking about throwing a poll so that
I could improve my blog a bit
will figure out more how to do it this weekend
and let you know soon...

I browsed my Etsy favorites and
felt like sharing some sweet prints I love

How about your weekend, do you have any plans yet?
I hope you'll have a nice one filled with sun and good times!

The days are running fast again...
this week I have spent lots of time
searching and ordering supplies for my post earrings
new wholesale orders are waiting
I'm so happy my little earrings are loved *smile*

This is a little bit boring but
I haven't created all that much this week
here are just my newest additions to
Karuski's Etsy shop: earrings, necklaces + bracelet

vintage velvet cabochon adorns this long necklace

these lovely Japanese stones are getting rare these days

vintage red velvet cabochon sits on a hand painted setting 

sweet brass locket is the focal point of this long necklace

large satin rose and vintage beads make this bracelet

Weekend Hello

Dear everyone,

This must be a record
no new post for a whole week
Many things have happened
after the fair which took place
last Saturday and Sunday
I travelled to a design seminar
both Monday and Tuesday
then I got really sick
the flu gave me signs already on Sunday
I should have given up earlier

I still haven't recovered
just wanted to say hi
despite of this nasty flu
I'm feeling grateful
Thanks again for everyone who came to see me
last weekend at the Recycling Factory
Myself I purchased sweet earrings from Ainokainen
Love them a lot!

Ula watching me photographing a necklace on a mannequin

I hope you're all fine
Have a nice weekend...
