a poem, a birthday, a new shop & soon a new decade!!! 🌸

 hey beautiful lovelies🌸

(update from a january 7th of 2020, 
from this year i am to exploring creating my monthly blogposts 
on saturdays instead of tuesdays, 
so i will meet you january 11th🌷)

it is december!!! 😍
it's time for all the magic of anticipation, arrival of christmas...the birth of jesus christ and all celebrations that comes with that. i am so excited since i am going home to uddevalla, sweden to be with my mom aunt and other dear ones i love and hold dear at home💜💜💜

we have experienced a whole november though:) how was yours? for me there was my birthday, i too opened up my new shop where i sell a tiny selection of my fine art prints ( soon to be a bigger selection) and i got the new magazine "kyrkobladet" by the swedish church in london; where my self portrait and poem was published (which i will share with you in this post😊). 

something astounding occurred to me this morning, in about 4 weeks we have finished a whole decade. i have been so focused on entering a new decade that i forgot the one we have just devoured. ohlalala what a ride this decade has been. i say thank you!!! thank you universe/ god for all that you have taught me (so far). 
soon we have finished a whole decade
there is so much work to do to protect and love our planet earth🌸🐣🐢🐒

anyways
...
here is a print i am soon to add to my shop
it is a composite from a couple of self-portraits (from 2014 and 2015) and a couple of still life of roses from this past november.

i am dreamingly longing for you my dear sisters

she is thriving while cleaning the air in my flat:)))
her name is jenny christina
she is named after my adorable friend 
the artist
(whom was a partner in crime getting the baby seed of this beauty)

this candelabra a neighbour of mine had decided to toss away this morning, thanks!!!
 i think it looks perfect here in my flat:)))
 i plan to decorate it so it becomes more flowery and victorian
 (we'll see if that actually happens...💜😊maybe i should leave it clean?)

 my (first goal of 2020) project for next spring is my
 "le spectre de la rose" short film. 
one where i will be dancing a tiny variation from a ballet. 
i might mix it with some of my prose/ poetry. 

here is the first pair of ballerina shoes i worn out for this project

of course a lot of play with the beauty of the rose
