Monday Moodboard

End of the summer, almost.
Shorter days, still there is a great light in the air... change of the seasons, ends and new beginnings, the circle of life... 
Good Monday to everyone out there!
Even the melancholia is beautiful in summer =)

The woman goes to the woods

The woman goes to the woods and asks to walk 4 or 5 km walk quietly, silently, searching the ground for chutsáj (chaguar) , also other varieties, to make thread.She finds a place where there are rather large. All its outline is thorny, like hooks. She boards an amount, makes a bundle and takes it home. she holds one butt and the other with her hands to begin to get the fiber. Hits, wash and dry the material obtained. Does the thread slowly. Everything is a ceremony, a knowledge as old as time made rite of gender. Then she goes back to the mountain to find seeds, shells, resin, to make dyes. She doesn't count stitches. She just dreams the design and weaves it directly. It ends in a purse or backpack which carries a single seam.

this story is so real as the sun and the days which pass by

woven secrets of wise women: holy and ancient crafts

love the summer

What a strange, haunted summer here in Sweden!
It's not exactly warm, it's not exactly sunny, but it's not winter!

It's hard to explain what's the summer here in the very north of the globe... if I should put it in ten words, should be like: strawberries, wild flowers, birds, bees, long days, eternal twilights... it sounds interesting, doesn't it?

Anyhow!! here come some pics from my last listing... I love it, I hope you love it too: 

A Rose is a rose III headband or necklace in delicate pink and olive shades

(you can see the wild flowers in the background, not only those I crocheted and the rosy, gorgeous model)

Love the summer, enjoy the small things!

haunting beauty

another great tool to a happy life is, clearly, great music

sorry, I don't like Celine Dion - neither Titanic, by the way!

There is something very personal about the music we like. Something with roots in the soul, our chidlhood (what our parents used to listen when we were kids, for example) and memories and symbols as well... the music is a map of our lives: it shows a lot to those who know how to read it.
Personally, I like many styles and rhythms. It depends of my mood.
I prefer though those sounds with mystery and a special beauty and when I find some new artist, I feel happy as a child at Christmas =))

Let me introduce you to my latest find, the amazing, stunning, haunting Ólöf Arnalds from Iceland

and here links to two songs - she sings in English but I prefer her singing in her mother tongue: it seems she is flying far away to some enchanted and far away place

ok, I have to correct that: even when she sings in English, she sounds amazing

enjoy the sound =)
