hot - or not?

My family is very outspoken.
Today I wanted to see how this carpet (which actually is not a carpet, but a thick, woven curtain on top of a cheap carpet) might look like for a design project I'm working on. There were not many positive remarks from my family...(ahhm, actually they were 100% negative ;).
What do you think?

craving a little „Bleu-Blanc-Rouge“

The norwegian people choose the same three colors for their flag in 1821 as the french for their tricolore.
There are all kind of theories what the colors refer to.
Anyway it definately is a nice color combination :)

Happy 17th of May!

Getting ready for summer... even though we had full storm and icy winds the last days :).

I painted this sign on an old lid from a trailer (?), which I took home with me last year from the roadside not far from our house. (I had it seen laying there for many months, so I figured out nobody wanted it anymore).

It's going to be used in my upcoming project :)

(the picture is not related to the project :)

I'm working on a project... something new for me.
More news soon.

Happy weekend.

1st of may

my favorite spot on the island

it's called "fredtun" - yard of peace

a secluted little "valley" at the rocky eastern shore
(we live at the western side of the island, with a steady wind from north or west)

here it's calm

years ago the place was used for childrens camps

yesterday it was just us and extended family
and the sun

the boys played soccer all afternoon

while she wished there would be water in the swimmingpool

enough water here

climbing is fun, too

dad and the boys down there

the view down to the chapel

a wonderful place 
with my favorite people
enjoying God's creation

Welcome may!
