Guest post from ‘London’!


Vof vof vof, I’m ‘London’ and I’m very happy to meet you! Teje asked me to tell a story today …

I tell you a story from the spring. I go to this little beach every day and some times I take Teje with me.

from Greece

I love water and I could stay on the beach all the day playing and enjoying the water! I’m happy also just sitting there and watching the seagals flying around … fishermans on the rocks … boats more far away.


Some times – in fact every time – I find interesting stones …

green stones

… one fisherman has forgot his boat there … and his apple …


Why we never find any fabrics! But one day we saw something else … in the water … it was so quick that we couldn’t get photo. We thought that’s not a story if we can’t show anything … but after few days we went very near to the big rock …


… and we found a proof for our story! Do you see something long in the middle on the rock? Look closer …

snake's skin

Don’t be affraid, it’s only the empty ‘skin’ from the snake. And the snake was water snake and they are not dangerous.

I think this was very exciting but I haven’t told yet to my mom … I don’t know what she would think and if she would let me still go to water.

So what happened the day before … we were walking on the beach and suddenly something was moving in the water, but it saw us and left very quickly.


There are interesting views on our way …

in Greece

You can see beautiful things and places every where if you just look …

Some times the sea is so rough that I can’t swim …

Then I just walk and enjoy the sea air, waves, sand …

Summer was very hot and I was so happy to visit this beach and to swim every day! Now it’s autumn and not too hot but still warm enough for fun in the water!

I hope you enjoyed my story even I didn’t find any fabrics!

Kisses from LONDON!

from the Greek beach

Thank you ‘London’, for your visit and for helping me to tell this story! You are so sweet girl and wonderful company!

My small part of this post is this fabric basket. I made a test how the bigger fabric basket works and it’s great.

I think big fabric basket would be fun with this fabric …

Thank you for joining us today and thank you for all the lovely comments!

  13. I’m very jealous of where you live! Is it warm there now? Chilly here in Canada!

    • Thank you Sara! It’s warm here! I always enjoy seeing from Canada in tv because it looks the same as in Finland! Usually it’s already colder here and can rain, but this year it seems to be that summer doesn’t end! x Teje
