jag hade låda efter låda fylld med vykort & fotografier, tidningsurklipp & printar
och en stycken mosaikbård som jag inte var alldeles förtjust i, 
på den fina lilla gästtoaletten här i nya, gamla lägenheten.
det var därför art for mosaics blev till,
med 20 minuter och en rulle washi tejp till hands.
kom in, - den är stor nog att trängas två på, minst..

runt, runt, överallt där bården fanns på ett ungefär, tejpade jag upp bilder.
eget arbete, vykort från runt i världen och vackra tidningsurklipp.
här är ju fantastisk takhöjd med stuckatur överallt
och alla fönster är de där magiska jag tjatar på Er om,
för att jag är så barnsligt förtjust i att de dras upp, som på film.
vaskar, toaletter och kranar är gamla och fina,
men vi hyr bara än så länge, så då får man hitta på
tillfälliga lösningar där man vill göra det till mer sitt eget.
till och med kroken jag inte gillade toppen på tejpades för, med mästaren
roversi's vackra fotografi, för att följa linjen runt i rummet
men ändå kunna använda till de där halsbanden som åker allra mest av och på.
till sist kom koushi lampan upp, med hjälp av lite klättrande och
nu är jag där inne, på gästernas toalett, mer än jag egentligen behöver.

ingen hjärnkirurgi till förändring direkt.
men konst kan vara många saker. det tycker jag är fint.

med en hel massa kärlek,

i had box after box filled with postcards & photographs, newspaper clippings & prints
and one mosaic border that i wasn’t too fond of, in the beautiful little guest toilet
here in the new, old flat. and that’s why art for mosaics came to be.
20 minutes and a roll of washi tape at hand.
come in - it is big enough to crowd two people, at least..

round and round, roughly wherever the border was,
i simply taped up images. my own work, postcards from around the world
and beautiful newspaper clippings that i’ve saved.
we have an amazing ceiling height with stucco throughout
and all the windows are those lovely ones i keep hassling you about,
just because i'm childishly fond of that they pull up, like in the movies.
the sinks, the closets & the faucets are old and beautiful,
but we only rent this place so far and that makes for having to find
temporary solutions, that make it all more one’s own.
even the old hook i didn’t like the tip of, i covered, with the master,
- roversi’s beautiful photography, - to follow the line around the room
but still be able to use for those necklaces that come on and off the most.
finally the koushi lamp shade went up, with some wobbly climbing
and now i’m in there, in the guest bathroom, more than i really need to.

it’s not rocket science, this make over.
but art can be many things. and that’s beautiful to me.

with love,

  1. Vilken toppen idé, älskar att så enkla kreativa medel kan förändra så mycket.
    Såå vackra bilder!



    1. tack, goding..! :) jag med !

      .. och tusen tack, alltid, för fina ord..!

      en hel massa kärlek,


  2. A wonderful solution. I done something similar in my dorm room at university, I used National Geographic postcards to add colour and interest to the prison like grey walls.


    1. yes, isn’t it, - & exactly; you really c a n
      arrange everything that comes your way,
      as much as you can at least, - & spread
      some color, light or loveliness around,
      even prison like rooms. they need it all
      the more.. :)

      thank you for stopping by..!



  3. Jag tänker komma & gästa den där toaletten alldeles snart ... det känner jag att jag nog måste.

    Himmel vad du fattas mig


    1. jaaa..!!
      det är inte som natt-mat framför brasan
      i studion, men vi kan klämma in oss och
      tända ett ljus och dricka, ähum, drinkar.

      och Du mig, alfred, - himla tur att det snart
      är dags..!

      stor kram, mitt hjärta !

  4. You weave that magic darling!
    I remember doing a similar thing
    in our U.K. bathroom
    - the place had wonderful bones,
    but as a rental
    there was nothing we could do
    about tiles and carpets...
    I remember covering the floral bathroom tiles
    with favourite quotes and poems.
    Our current home, our own,
    on the other hand,
    is still full of things that we haven't got round to doing
    despite being at freedom to do whatever we want.
    Somehow over time you kind of get used to seeing
    the not so nice bits,
    not a good thing :)
    But once you get motivated to work on something,
    it kind of gets the ball rolling further afield.
    Hopefully after the summer :)


    1. that’s so sweet to hear, my lovely,
      that you did the same thing ! :)
      exactly that.. lovely bones.
      but aaah, the carpets, the carpets
      are what kills me.. i promise you my
      fingers actually i t c h to save the floors
      underneath.. *smiles* (especially after
      some detective snooping in the entrance’s
      little cupboard.. where i found what floors
      are, as expected, underneath here..
      worn. old. wide. wooden planks. with. large.
      seams. *sigh* that i can’t even accept. *smiles*
      i mean.. everything we put in here furniture-wise
      would look so amazing, if only...

      we’re looking to buy though, and i tell you,
      i can’t WAIT ’til the day i get to sink my teeth
      into a flat like the ones around here..

      yes, let’s dream, - until your autumn and
      my hopefully not to far into the future..



  5. Yep, this is the perfect "Hanna style"!
    What a lovely guests bathroom, full of beautiful details.
    Hmm, my little make-up bag added to it? Fits really good ;-)

    Hugs to you dear friend,
    Sirka x


    1. thank you, sirka, - that’s so sweet of you..!

      oh yeah, that was actually slumped there,
      since i used it, and i thought it added some color
      to the otherwise monochrome shot, so left it
      hangin’.. *smiles*

      wishing you a lovely end to your week..!



  6. Vilken toppen idé, älskar att så enkla kreativa medel kan förändra så mycket.

  7. I so much love your style....and it´s always a pleasure to have a look into your home...
    it´s a big Inspiration for me and makes me want to do creative things.
    (again a big thank you, you Sweetheart!!!!)
    by the way, I did something similar in my old house several times...
    in my entry, in the kitchen, wherever I feel the Need for a Little change -
    but not a big, more a small Change.
    so now I am thinking about to print some of my Pictures
    and decorate the walls...I mean - why not?!
    Have a very happy Weekend, Honey!
    How is the weather?
    We have a heat wave in my side of the world
    and I think I should send you a large bundle sunrays!

    x, t.


    1. thank you so much, darling t,
      - that’s really sweet of you to say !

      lovely.. yeah, - do it again..! *smiles*
      it’s always beautiful, i think, to surround yourself,
      in different ways, with things that gives you a good vibe..!
      important too..

      i wish you just the same, - & thank you, - sunrays indeed
      needed here..! *smiles* and a bundle too, mmm..! :)

      enjoy the heatwave and stay beautiful,
