Lanterns for autumn nights

It's been raining for two days. The summer is definitely over and so are the lazy days when I was just thrifting and searching for inspiration. I should really get on with my work now, the duties are piling up.

Here are some unfinished collages I've been working with for a while. They are getting ready slowly but surely. Well... they'll have to be ready in five weeks, when I have a small exhibition. Making collages is like wave movement, sometimes all the parts click together very fast, and sometimes you just need to let it rest. Usually a little pressure is good though. If I did'n have any deadlines, I'd get nothing done.

This is my "Physalis alkekengi". I think it's called Chinese lantern plant or winter cherry. Anyway I like it a lot, it really brightens up my balkony.

I actually like autumn..
soon the trees will be full of colors, nights are getting darker and I can light candles. I just wish it wouldn't rain so much. It's not funny to get soaking wet every time I ride my bike. And I do that a lot because I don't have a car! Maybe I need to buy a nice colorful raincoat that'll make me smile every time I wear it.

Oh boy!

This cute fellow is my parents' new puppy. He's a handsome little Tibetan Spaniel. So now, instead of doing my collage projects, I'm just gonna have to go to my parents house for the weekend and play with this adorable creature.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

I took part in Hiekkaoliivi's ATC swap for the first time. The theme was birds. I sent these four cards:

...and I received these beauties:

They are from Jansky, Ansku, Anne S. and Elina. Thank you for everyone! Kiitos!

Loveliness from the mailbox

I got these beautiful handmade goodies from Ellene today. I'm actually wearing the necklace right now. It's an altered domino and the dots are on the other side. I love it!

Sorry for the unsharp photo, my camera has very poor zooming qualities.
