- tag -

I was tagged by Ritva from Lumetta blog. Here are the rules of the game: 

1. Respond & rework the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own. 

2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

What is your current obsession? Constantly dreaming about travelling. 

What are you wearing now? A cottony dress, woollen knee socks and my favourite woolly on my shoulders.

Do you nap  lot? No, not that much I'd like to. I'm a sleeper, a dreamer, I would need naps more often.

Who was the last person you hugged? Laura, my dear friend.

If you were a tree, what tree that would be? A willow. Bends but doesn't cave. And it really knows how to cry.

What's for dinner? Spinach soup.

What was the last thing you bought? 1 meter very cute, flowery and dotty, the 40's style cotton batiste. 

What are you listening right now? I fancy about them like a teenager :) Grizzly Bear.

What is your favourite weather and why? Sunny in spring. Because light and colours then feel so perfect and amazing after winter greyness (which isn't bad either). And my feelings on springtimes are somehow wild, vivid.

What time you usually get up? My sleeping rhytm is rather irregular, no usual getting up time. I feel the best way to wake up when light wakes me, unfortunately it's not always possible.

What is your most challenging goal right now? To decide whether to start to study something or just concentrate on work. But now I'll ponder it very carefully and calm, not hurrying.

Say something to the person who tagged you: I'm curious about you. You seem to be a very fascinating person.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where you wanted it to be? Difficult to choose. Copenhagen, Stockholm, New York, Kioto, Amsterdam  for example.

Favourite vacation spot? France, Sweden ... any place where one can find fabulous flea-markets or brocantes :) And Italy right now, because I have got a little taste how very lovely country it can be. And in my dreams, United States.

What movies can you watch over and over? Many  French New Wave films, the most I love Jean-Luc Godard's the 60's films. And then,  Fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain. And Reds, maybe not over and over, but many, many times. I love costume design in it. And last but not least Antonioni's Blow-Up. It's a movie I constantly return thinking and remembering.  

What is your favourite tea flavour? Earl Grey, I'm addicted to bergamot scent. 

What are you reading right now? Sven Delblanc: Samuelin tyttäret ( I think it's not translated in English, sorry). I love a repeating theme in his books: conflict between human freedom and overpowering social system. It's the theme I always return thinking.

What is your current quilty pleasure? Just dreaming, not being efficient. But, to be honest, I don't even take it so quilty.

Where is the landscape of your mind? In an old, wild garden, much pathways, moss, shabby atmosphere. Mostly sunny garden but one can find also dark shadowy places over there. Maybe even a baroque one, but declined. 

What is the latest quotation which made you impressed? To me it is Albert Camus' "In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer."  

The tag flies from me to: Mette, Aino, Maijja, Pia Jane Bijkerk, Matroskin, Livy, Lobster and Swan and Maria.


  1. Olipa ihania blogeja noilla ihmisillä , joita haastoit.

  2. Eikö olekin! Haastoin ihailemiani ihmisiä.

  3. Minä olen nyt kuva kuvalta entistä enemmän lääpälläni näihin sinun otoksiisi! Tuo alin on ihan huippu, kotisi on kuin koru!

  4. mitkä kuvat, kotisi on tosiaan jumalainen! ja vastauksiasi oli innostava lukea.

    kiitos haasteesta, teen tämän enemmän kuin mielelläni.

  5. Sanctuary, oijoi, kun kehusi tuntuu mukavalta ;) Ei tämä kyllä vielä ihan koru ole. Mutta siihen tähtään, tietysti!

    Aino, ihanaa, kun otat haasteen vastaan. Aina kun ei tiedä, miten kukanenkin suhtautuu näihin. Kiitollisin mielin sanoistasi.

  6. hei tanja,
    mielestäni jätin jo sinulle viestin, mutta se on kai sitten kadonnut taas ulkoavaruuteen...
    kiitos ja halaus!
    upeat kuvat ja mielenkiintoiset vastaukset!
    hieno sitaatti!

  7. Ritva, ulkoavaruuteen on tainnut mennä, ei ole näkynyt. Tämä tosiaan oli kiva haaste. Kiitos!

  8. Ritvalle vielä, tykkään muutenkin Camus:n ajatuksista! Mutta tämä iski nyt tähän saumaan mulle kuin nakutettu.

  9. It was lovely to learn a little more about you and I love seeing glimpses, of your gorgeous home.

  10. Tanja, kiitos haasteesta, otan mieluusti sen vastaan jahka kerkiän! Kotisi näyttää kauniilta. Ja kyllä on kummaa tämä telepatia... juuri vähän ennen postaustasi mietin onko sinulla vielä tuo ruusumekko! Muistan kun ostit sen.
