{this & that}

enjoyed another gorgeous sunset. picture taken through our bedroom window.
when i first came to canada, i did not get dr seuss children's books at all. now i'm so into dr seuss! :) these books are cool. we've had so much fun trying to find all the wacky things on each page of "wacky wednesday".

simple writing helps children learn how to read.
fun tongue twisters. sienna is so good at rhyming now. sometimes she wants to play the rhyming game first thing in the morning. tickle, giggle, wiggle, jiggle...

good thing we read this one. we just about bought a walrus for jay for father's day. :D
we read two to three books to sienna each night at bedtime. some books are more enjoyable than others. especially after you've read them about hundred times before. :)
katsokaa mitä sienna toi minulle kun kävi sunnuntaikävelyllä jayn kanssa. valkovuokkoja heinäkuussa! niitä ei ole täällä yhtä paljon kuin suomessa mutta näköjään muutama löytyy silloin tällöin.

{the world's most famous hips in action :)}

then something funny i read on facebook:

if only mosquitos sucked fat instead of blood.

ihana olisi. :)

and i like this one:

'pay no mind to those who talk behind your back - it simply means that you are two steps ahead'

happy monday everyone!

{ei mitään ihmeellistä...}

muut ottaa hienoja kukkakimppukuvia. minä näitä macrokuvia vaan aina.

todella usein saadaan nauttia upeista auringonlaskuista. parhaiten ne näkyy meidän makuuhuoneen ikkunasta.
muuten elämään on kuulunut:
auto-onnettomuus mutta onneksi ei käynyt pahasti. joku ajoi melko mojovasti meidän takapuskuriin. minun niska on ollut kipeä (parin päivän päästä on onneksi aika kiropraktikolle) ja autoon tuli naarmuja. pakettiauto joka meihin törmäsi sai isot lommot.
eri leikkikentillä oleskelua.
uudessa spray park:ssa käyty. vettä ruiskuaa vaikka miten. mahtava paikka hellesäille.
löysin uuden lempiruuan ravintolasta jossa ei oltu käyty aiemmin. ihanaa curry penne pastaa kanalla jossa oli omenan siivuja, sipulia, paprikaa sekä vaahterasiirappia...
siennalle olen järjestänyt monet leikkitreffit. joskus ei ole kiva olla ainoa lapsi. sienna onkin todennut monesti että haluaa siskon. mistä nyt sellaisen sitten keksisi...
"do unto others as you would have others do unto you... even if they never, never do."

{magazine clippings}

love the art by rafael lozano-hemmer (as long as the writing isn't something rude :)).
love the O duve cover & O night lamps.
w.o.w.! can you imagine waking up to this view?
this home had a helicopter landing area as well.
i'm still loving this pink christmas tree. funky shmunky. :)
so many O's! yey. :)
love this bedroom.
do you like this idea?
i guess it wouldn't be bad if all the swimmers had great bodies. otherwise... oy! :)
mainio idea kesämökin huussiin.
it's not as easy as it looks to make a painting like this.
artist: pat steir.
love, love, love this one! it wasn't clear in the article who the artist was though. :(
one of my favorite paintings ever! love it so so much!
artist (in the picture): rachel hovnanian.
a detail.
love this font
love this painting by kim atlin.
orange & white painting by james nares. again - this looks easy to do but trust me, it isn't.
these are pictures of magazine clippings so the quality is not what it should be to show the art.
i don't buy as many magazines as i used to. same old stuff in most of them. but i love it when i find new artists whose work i like.

{canada day facepainting}

"i'm the princess of canada."
i'm getting faster at facepainting. i just don't stress about it anymore. it doesn't have to be perfect.
i used a stencil for the maple leaves.

{leffa suosituksia}

it was so good to spend time with bella & edward & jacob and the gang again. Y
my only criticism about this movie is that it wasn't long enough. that's why the books are so much better, you get the little details that are missed in the movies. i'm so happy that they're making two movies out of breaking dawn (the last book in the series).

i usually never recommend movies that have bad language etc in them but i have to make an exception with this one. this movie totally surprised us because it ended up being a very touching movie. great message that we never expected at all. so if you can hack some bad language and don't mind fast forwarding through a sex scene, then do watch it. this movie will squeeze your heart in a good way.
