Summer Heat & Knitted Fashion

Hot sun is keep digging in my skin and I have feeling that it goes right to my bones. Let me tell you, I'm looking forward to autumn again. I think it's my favorite time of a year anyway, well maybe spring could be concurrence. I spent my last september in Canada and I miss the weather those days here. I know, I'm back, but I'm leaving the last day of August, so maybe I'll miss nice cool weather here. Well, whatever.

At least I started to learn knitting, cooler days will come soon and I have to be prepared. 
Which reminds me another thing I wanted to share. I was reading through and found out that knitted goods are very actual for this fall/winter season. Right on time, don't you think?

Canada, Wild Animals and Sweden

 So as I previously mentioned, I'm spending my summer in Canada, again. 
I won't be talking about what I've seen already, what I'm doing here and what I'm planning to do, because also I still want to keep some things just for myself. Let's just say: I'm practicing my english and eating fruit. Lot's of fruit, because, man, it's so delicious here. Not like those frozen grown strawberries without any flavor, sour peaches, that you don't want to eat them anymore. Hmmm

School is starting soon and I have chance to enjoy my last summer with all benefits it brings. Relax, got little bit of experience from other culture, open my eyes little bit widely.

But let me tell you something about my obsession last couple weeks. I became really amused by wild animals. I'm not talking about lions, tigers, elephants. I mean more like forest animals from up north. Did you ever noticed how gorgeous deers are? And birds? And now try to imagine it as a design in regular life. Sounds like a kitsch? Well not to me anymore. 
I took those seagulls pictures at the waterfront of Ontario lake and thinking about hanging it, once I get back to Prague and I would like your opinion people. Is that something you might want to have at home? 

And now about Sweden. I've never been there, that's something I must tell first. We would have a chance at my secondary school, because every year one class goes there. We were probably that bad , they didn't take us there and rather take other class. 
Anyway, thinking about this country makes me wonder how they are so successful in everything they do. I mean look at Ikea, H&M, ABBA... But what I think Sweden is most successful in? Design. 
I'm reading some design blogs from this country, let me correct myself, I'm not reading, just looking at pictures because as much as I want to, I don't speak their language. It's very inspirational, so if you're now in design, home reconstruction, I have some links for you...

My Biggest Apologies

Dear readers, 

I've been a bad blogger. I don't write that often as I should, got little bit lazy and with no inspiration. I admit that, to you. 

It has been couple weeks and I've been busy by making and finalizing my portfolio, which I'm not sure if I should post, and traveling across the ocean, which I'll mention later. Now when I got ill, the weather, my mood finally pushed me to post something. 

Enjoy a little bit from my history... you know portfolio and stuff...

Welcome 2010/2011

Pictures in this post by R.G.

Well so it's finally here and I'm officially not unemployed, I am a Student! I got ISIC, my health insurance is being paid since now, and it feels... GREAT. Finally my life has a meaning again and I became part of something. After my parents divorce, me living with my sister I really don't know where I belong. Now I know. 
School starts October 4th, so I get 3 months of summer holidays, even someone could consider my last year as a big holiday.

I almost forgot to tell you, dear readers, that next week I'm flying to Canada for two months. I get to see my "american family" , friends and most important, my darling will show me his country. You have no idea how excited I am now. 

Being busy for last couple weeks I haven't write how my knitting story continues, but I'm about to finish this week, so keep your fingers crossed.

Happy Summer My Dears...

P.S. For those living in Canada, Happy Canada Day!!! With delay...

The Day

Morning everyone.
The day is finally here, day, when I became a student again. I'll go to my school with nicely collected require papers, money and photo. High heels, electric blue dress, confidence.
So fingers crossed for me and I'll write about it later.
