Inside the blouse

Hello. The autumn makes headway and the weather gets colder a day by day and if I'm honest it feels that I have lost my cold resistant completely. In the morning while going to work I have trembled crazily, but the good thing is that I have still managed to keep myself healthy. Many other people around have suffered from the cold like my beloved so I've tried to isolate myself from the disease nest in my best way.  

One outfit which I have worn a lot recently is the huge dress or shirt and it's very lovable and easy to wear. It needs just tights on and some heels and looks good enough. I especially like those sleeves which are enormous. Material is fairly thin so the dress needs some pullover with it now when the temperature is close to zero. It's a shawl that the period, when it was possible to walk outdoors without wearing a overcoat went over so quickly. 
It seems that the simple graphic garments have come to stay in my life. I would lie to say that I miss more sophisticated clothes into my life.

Art experience

On Sunday evening we were adventuring around my old corners and stopped by this art center which actually was very unfamiliar location to us both. I lived close to it before and have passed by it several times, but I didn't know what that place really keeps inside. It's an old mental hospital or at least I have heard a legend of that. These days there seems to act an art center and they coincidentally had an exhibition going on. I was just going to see the coffin which was filled with the books ( a new kind of library), but people there invited us to see also inside. And so we got a tour which revealed a time machine,  famous toilet and art workshop to name a few. Awesome  place. I do hope that the city won't ruin this. 

 Typical clothes which I have worn recently. It starts to be quite chilly weather especially in the mornings. An old false leather jacket is still one of my favorite coat and huge knitting under it. Both are many years old.
This character greets you every time while walking on the street. 
 The coffin was to my taste and obviously it catch an attention from others too thus there was people wondering it with us.

Dying nature

The most inspirational season is at hand and to me it means a lot of candles, wine and hanging out in the nature with a camera. A week ago I woke up early and left the lake to see the nature in the morning light and it was quite relaxing to spend a few hours by walking around the lake when the rest of the city was in a tight sleep. I also visited a bird tower, but I saw nothing from there. Wildlife photography interests me more and more and I have even dreamed of the better tele lens for a good time. My old lens is quite poor and it doesn't face with my standards. Unfortunately I had to buy a new washing machine a few weeks ago and that naturally  ate a bit of my budget. 
 It's quite green still, but I can't wait for the nature starts changing its color into the shades of orange.
 Only birds which I saw were the crows. I know there lives a couple of swans, but I wasn't able to see them at this time. 
Unfortunately this weekend was too busy that I didn't have time to go to photograph. I have a million things at hand all the time and it is a challenge to find a time for everything. Now I have three different sewing projects going on for my beloved. Yesterday I was dead tired after gym and went to my friend's housewarming party in the evening. Naturally I slept late in the morning and now I'm again going to see my beloved and hopefully we will spend a relaxing evening with a movie or something. A rolling stone gathers no moss they says.

Von Nottbeck's cemetery

A  little bit over a week ago I visited the cemetery whose existence was revealed me in the spring. It's a tiny, much smaller as I thought, closed  and private area which belonged  to the local family who influenced a lot the local economy on its own era. Over the summer there was arranged open door days and this Sunday happened to be the last of those days in this year. Normally you can't get in, but you can surely observe the place through a fence!

There was a guide who told us about the family and about the burials which were made there during the years. It was really interesting to feed the mind and get the new knowledge of the city. The fenced area includes twelve tombs (if I remember correct), the first burial was made in 1885 and the last in 1997. More burials is not coming in the future because there is no one left of the family in this country, but there is still distant relatives left abroad. 
In addition to the graves there is also a small chapel which is made of the bricks. 
 The fence and the gate are really beautiful. If I had a yard, I would like to have something like this as well. Unfortunately there was so many people that I didn't manage to take a decent picture of the gate.
 This place is fairly hidden and it's difficult to find it if you don't know about it. There is also a couple of mansions in the city which belonged to the family and they are also really charming. A head of the family was a chief of the cotton factor which stopped acting in the early 90's. He and his wife and their four sons are buried here and  also their offspring.
