Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Happy Friday


Hi dear friends! Looks like happy days continue as today we meet at Penny’s ‘Happy Friday’! Come and join the fun sharing your happy moments! Penny made me think what made me happy this week …

Paint Splash

Quite many things make me happy every day, even ‘everyday’ it’s so easy to forget those things. Often they are something we see so often that we don’t see them anymore.


Last time you where thinking what Nero and Hanna saw on the other side of the wall. It was in fact our terace and they can see to the sea (above) and to the ‘White Mountains’ (below) …


… but you can guess that they don’t look the sea or mountains but the cats, dogs and any one, any where around!


Today on my way to meet my sweet golden friend, I realized that where ever I go, I can see mountains or the sea! White mountains are now so gorgeus when the sun makes the snow shine!


Nero and Hanna make me happy. Every morning Hanna gives me very gentle kiss before I get up from the bed. Then she goes the stairs down singing and seems to be so happy to start a NEW day! They get piece of bread in the morning. Nero takes his bread and runs and jumps (always) to the living room to eat it.


Nelli still finds NEW thing in this House and makes me smile. I think she’s most happy in the evening when I go to the bedroom, finally settling in one place and she can watch tv for a while with me.


Colours and colourful things make me happy and these triangle mugs – you understand that I had to take them – how often you see mugs with quilt pattern (at least here, not often)!


This ‘piece’ was supposed to be a part of one project with the paper pieced paint tubes, but that didn’t happen, so I made it mini quilt for my new sewing room. ‘Paint Splash’ and bright Kona solids make me happy.


For me this photo has almost too delicious colours. I can’t explain how much I enjoy those happy colours mixed together … I think I need to print this to put it on the wall. I wish I had time to make a happy painting!
