Perfectly imperfect

I saw that you were perfect and so I loved you.
Than I saw you were not perfect and I loved you even more. 

I had already deleted these...

So many reasons

I tell you it's been an exhausting week! In so many ways... But we had survived, it was finally Friday and I would have taken any reason to celebrate a little. And at that point I realized we had so many reasons.

Well... It was Friday, we had survived and it was Minea's name day. I don't know if it's actually an international habit but at least in Finland a name day is a tradition that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one's given day.

Nothing too fancy. But some flowers, pink bubbles, small pastries and a little present...

Floral Love {Crocus}

Welcome to Floral Love

Week passed by so quickly I almost forgot to put up my Floral Love post...
I suddenly realized it's Thursday and I haven't got any flower pictures. In fact I haven't been taking any pictures... So I had to run to take a picture. Crocuses are here!

I'm a little bit in love with... Mondays!
A fresh start. New beginning. Sweet everyday things...

Floral Love {Muscari Blue}

Welcome to Floral Love!

Thank you for being here...   
Remember that Floral Love will be running weekly again. So link up your Florals!

It's April! It's Spring! I have so much going on right now... busy times. This happens to me every yer at this time... I'm all over different projects; creating, planning, dreaming... Spring Fever! So it may happen that I won't be around to comment your beautiful flowers but I will be looking! Thank you for sharing.

It's spring fever.
That is what the name of it is.
And when you've got it,
you want - oh you don't quite know
what it is you know,
but it just fairly
makes your heart ache,
you want it so!

- Mark Twain

Roses & Stuff

Spring that finally sprung. I bought pink roses to celebrate the weekend. 
The golden hour sun was beautiful and warm and we really stopped to smell the roses.

Floral Love {Anemones}

Welcome to Floral Love!

Once again - I'm so happy to have you here...   


And I'm exited to announce that Floral Love will be running weekly again.
So link up your Florals!

I'm sharing some pictures of my anemones... my favorites. Only they seem to be quite hard to find around here. I love white ones most but this spring I haven't found any! But I'll continue searching and meanwhile enjoy these beauties!

In between..

We are between Winter and Spring. The nature is quiet. The birds are already singing but their voice remains small. The surrounding stands grey and brown. Not in an ugly blown out way but in peace and stillness. The Spring will happen very soon. Now we just wait. Silently. Even tough we're more impatient than ever.


If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant:
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
-Anne Bradstreet


Just wait. And look closely.


Hush...

Friday Find

My Friday Find... a few lines...

Someday, somewhere - anywhere,
unfailingly, you'll find yourself,
and that, and only that can
be the happiest or bitterest
hour of your life.
