So, life lately has essentially been... hasty! Hasty, busy, active - only name it because practically every synonym of "energetic" goes fairly well. But I also believe springtime stands for working hard anyway and therefore I'm not complaining at all. On the contrary - currently we are creating this fascinating box garden (wikiHow link; initial photos further below), in particular raised vegetable garden boxes which will have to accommodate our beetroots, carrots, herbs, leeks, onions, potatoes, radishes, strawberries, zucchinis and even more. We're also preparing for the arrival of our very first greenhouse so yeah, "busy" definitely is the impeccable term in this very horticultural situation.
However, on April 19 we ruthlessly shirked from all the gardening and drove roughly 140 km in order to get to tiny Järvakandi borough where E's paternal grandpa was celebrating his respectable 81st birthday. Besides the traditional and always obvious (and often excessive) eating a decent stroll happened. Or actually I pretty much dragged E outside to go on a sunny walk and discover some seemingly endless forest roads surrounded by a beautiful bog that was carefully hiding behind those protective trees. It was a great power walk and I only hope that you, guys, can sense and enjoy at least some of that greatness through those sunny photos below and above.
And last but not least come a few fresh, mostly thrifted home related goodies, proudly posing on top of our half-ready box garden. The only non-thrifted item is that oh so dainty Sensuelle soy wax candle from Joik. It smells like coconut milk, ripe figs, brown sugar, musk and cembra pine. In a word - celestial! But now my decorative thrift finds: a ceramic tea bag container (€1.50), a vase (€1.50) and those incredibly colourful cup mats (€0.50 the whole set). I tracked them all down on Monday while visiting my favourite local thrift store and what can I say - must love thrift shopping! In fact, I still have something thrifted from Diesel and from Karl Lagerfeld in store for you. Something extra awesome for summer, both €1! Exciting, huh? ;)
But for the time being enjoy today's wide-scope springlike photo flood and let me know your thoughts because I truly appreciate your feedback, each and every comment. Till next time, sweeties!
