I put a spell on you

Hello after a few week's absence. I've been too busy with celebrating Halloween that it's been impossible to find time to open blogger. Busy days at work and for the past three weekends I've spent in the clubs by listening to some great music except one weekend which went with burlesque. Carving of the pumpkins has stolen its own time as well. I would have liked to decor more home with horror theme, but because I'm busy lady I simply don't have time for it. I had some nice diy ideas, but perhaps I will implement them in the future. I settle for the sweet pumpkins this year!
 Nearly two weeks ago I was fairly efficient. Early in the morning when the sun came up I was photographing outdoors. Later in the day I went to the amusing park where was a horror zombie theme; what else? This was the first time in the amusing park outside of the summer and I need to admit  the roller coaster ride was quite chilly. But the zombie attack was worth it. After this experience I rushed to the club to see one of my favorite Finnish band: Lasten Hautausmaa. The day was busy and I was quite tired after it, but it was worth all. 

Last weekend I went to see my old favorite band: Sara (and Maj Karma). Both sounded good and it was a pleasure to see them again. Finnish alternative rock is nearly dead, but a few good projects still exist. 

It's my birthday this weekend, but I have a deep plan to stay home for I've been going all the time. Perhaps I drink a glass of wine, but no special plans. I was about to take a new tattoo as a gift, but it seems that I'm badly late. Perhaps I try to sketch over the weekend so that I can go to make a reservation. 
A carved pumpkin is rotting in the balcony. I've lit the candle inside of it every night. The new lantern is a finding from the flea market. 
As you probably know, I'm not a fan of kitch and usually I round far while seeing some plastic ugly decor products in the stores, but now I wasn't able to resist. This owl globe stole a piece from my black heart and I had to bring it to the home. 

I wish you all happy Halloween! I go to drink some tea and read some magic ;)

Something they called horror

Quite a hectic and kind of full weekend is behind me. I was busy doing all kind of different tasks like reading some law text which is fairly exhausting (yeah, I'm dreaming of making the second uni degree, but I'm quite insecure if I have time for that. At least I try although right now it feels I'm mostly struggling. I'm not sure if there is any sense when I'm already over educated, but I like to develop myself and learning new things is rewarding). I'm very good at arranging more things to do although the time is very limited affair. 

But not all weekend passed with studying. On Friday evening we finally watched the Vvitch with my beloved. That film was released in 2015, but  only now we managed to watch it. And I liked it. The atmosphere was magnificent and also it was visually to my dark taste. I'd actually re-watch it even immediately. However my beloved said that there was overmuch Holy Spirit in that film. Whatever, now I can cross out one film from the list I have "movies you should watch". 
On Saturday a bunch of awesome burlesque performers entertained us in the event which was sold out. A few beers (literally only a few) and loony nuns and devils made our night. Awesome show again and quality performers. Definitely worth every penny. 
 I was dressed in this age-old skater dress which is partly worn out, but I haven't done any new party dresses in a long time. Perhaps there would be a need for one new? I do like to wear quite simple dresses these days even in the party and there are a few favorite models which I nearly almost pick up. The skater dresses are nice, but also a  sleeveless slip dress works. Long satin gloves and hat give a festive look when the dress is simple and even workaday. There was a horror theme in the event, but like always I didn't have energy to put effort into my look although some zombie look would have been very charming. 

Sometimes death do not us part.

Can you hear the breath of trees?

The autumn runs forward and I'm worried it goes over too quickly. The best "orange phase" is right now and I've tried to capture it through the lens as much as I can (not enough though). I spent time in the forest last weekend and it felt super comfy place to be. Finnish nature is one of those best things in this country in additions to the changing seasons.
This sweetie occurred to say hello. I was hoping to see some deers or mouses and I started being already quite desperate while sitting in the bush. I was about to leave until this only one appeared from the woods. (And I do hope to get the new better lens at some point. I'm saving up for that all the time)
The new dress was on for the first time. I made it some weeks ago. It's made of the stretch and white lace piece which is a part of the second hand top. I'm quite happy with the result. 

The week has gone very quickly and it's again the weekend... The coming weekend will include some burlesque after a break.

Art worshipper

We paid a visit to the church on last Sunday, not because we wanted to praise the lord, but we were interested in hearing the game music when it was played by using the organ of the church. The organ is the fine instrument and the acoustics is always special in the church. In addition the church is very magnificent, it keeps inside an artwork from my favorite artist (or one of them) : Hugo Simberg. I definitely recommend to visit here if you are around the corner.  I'm not at all religious person, but the churches represent me the art pieces in itself. 
I was dressed in the trench coat, suede boots (from Vagabond) and beret. The coat is many years old and I have not worn it much in recent years, but now I brought it from the basement and I've started wearing it again. It has been the very chilly weather and the warm clothes are quite much needed. 

The Garden of the death and the Wounded angel are my favorites. 
I love the shape of the roof. The church is not that big, but it is very elegant. 

A life of mine has been quite busy (what a surprise) and the blog has spent again some silent days. I have a lot of material and I hope to find the time to share them with you. I have a great inspiration to photograph and I've spent much time in the nature. Also the sewing machine has stolen the time which is of course awesome. Creativity is blooming and I'm not ashamed of that at all.
