Halloween edition muahahahahaha :)

It is Halloween! πŸ™‚

Since I won’t be doing anything related this year, it is reblog time! I was really pumped up about it last two years because it didn’t really catch on here as a “holiday” up until last few years… So, I carved pumpkins. And I planned costume and went to Halloween parties, but I am yet to be something scary for Halloween. I went as Audrey Hepburn, maybe that’s scary for someone. πŸ˜‰

I had no blog then, but I did last year (it was 4 months old awwww) so I posted about it. Enjoy πŸ™‚

First I sketch the outline of mine carving of choice – cat silhouette. Then I realised that I have placed it to high, erase everything with sponge and sketch again. πŸ˜€ Second thing to do is the most annoying… Taking out the inside of the pumpkin. I have no proper tools, so I used knife and spoon, and later on smaller knife for carving. After about an hour my pumpkin was ready for carving. Despite…

Goodbye autumn… :)

Goodbye autumn... :)

The weather forecast for this week is temperatures below zero and snow in most of my country so the title is appropriate. πŸ™‚ I made this photos as part of my Halloween edition, before I got to work of carving the pumpkin πŸ˜‰

I collected things like leaves making sure I have variety of colors… I imagined a lot of things in the picture, a little bit of chaos, and chaos I got indeed. :mrgreen:

I saved hazelnuts cocoons from cleaning and shells, everything. I was in nature that week so I collected some extraordinary leaves, acorns, briars and stuff like that. It was a puzzle piece making itself in my head that week…

The day I was supposed to shoot I went outside with huge plastic bag and put in it as much leaves as I could. Red, green, dry, brown, yellow, wide, big, small… Everything. It was awesome to look at confused people passing by and watching me collecting my treasure. πŸ˜€

Tell me what do you think, do you like it?

Despite being veeery careful, I have managed to cut off one ear. πŸ˜€ Luckily for me, I had glue and voila! Cat had two ears again. πŸ˜‰ It took me about two hours for everything, but when I placed candle inside and shut of the lights… it was worth the trouble. πŸ™‚

Do I like fall…at all?

Do I like fall...at all?

I’ve been feeling kinda sick lately… I say kinda, because I’m not laying in bed with temperature (yet!), but my head hurts so much that I can’t blog as much as i want to. 😦 Oh the joys of changing seasons, the autumn is coming and with it so are colds, flu and other gifts of nature… πŸ˜•

Fall is really depressing, at least for me… Coming after awesome warm summer, suddenly it’s raining all the time, it’s getting colder every day and sunlight is rare and slowly giving the crown to the night more and more… Autumn has always been my least favorite season, I guess because school is starting, college is starting, responsibilities are starting. It was like an old guy telling me at 4 am that the party is over and he needs to close the club.

So, I was thinking to myself after I was caught in the rain yesterday with no umbrella, what do I LIKE about autumn?

I made a list. :mrgreen: It’s not a long one, but it still has more numbers than I thought it would have.

1. Colors. *.* I looooove autumn colors, the nature’s own decorations…

2. Tea. Fruit tea, green tea, mint tea, herb tea, mmmmm…. With lemon and honey. I cannot begin explaining how much I like tea… I don’t drink coffee, tea is my medicine. Since it’s to hot to drink it during summer, I return to him faithfully when the colder days arrive.

3. Watching rain falling. From inside! πŸ™‚ Or maybe going for a walk with umbrella.

4. Smell of rain in the air. Pure freshness. (Like a commercial)

5. Chestnuts roasted on fire… Awesome.

6. Watching movies under a ton of blankets, all warm and cosy…

7. Watching a storm. Again, from inside. Same as with the tea, I am a huge freak when it comes to storms, storm clouds, lightnings etc. I can watch trough window for hours just enjoying, watching how the wind goes through the trees and cars passing by… When i was just a little girl, I would do the same. We even lived in a place without lighting rod, but I was never scared. I have been photographing for years the clouds but now I finally have a place to put those photos. πŸ™‚

8. Halloween! Muahahahaha… It has been few years since we “adopted” this holiday from USA, but it is really a joy. We still have our own masquerade in february. Halloween is more fun for adults, no one goes trick or treating on Halloween, but everyone goes clubbing under masks. πŸ˜€

9. And the most important thing… Christmas is coming! Soon, the city will be filled with decorations and festive lights. Delight!

10. With Christmas there comes a New Year, and it seems that I love looking in the sky because I adore fireworks. This is not fall anymore, but it is certainly something I look forward too. And I wantedΒ to end with number 10. πŸ˜€
