availspace Available Space: Harvest

Monday, October 16, 2006


Last week was autumn break here in Norway and we ventured out the latter part of the week and spent a fantastic weekend at a cabin in the mountains. We harvested blueberries and had delicious blueberry pancakes for dinner. There were many bonfires to be had as well and I used my American heritage to teach my very Norwegian kids how to make smores. I do my fair share of complaining about living in this small country but when I can pull over my car, jump out with an armload of food stuffs and proceed to roast marshmallows, I think, how can it get better than this!

Yesterday, Sunday, we headed home like many families after a mountain break and were met with traffic. Oh no, not THAT kind, but Goat Traffic! Remember, I live in NORWAY. This is quite normal you know!

And, I have gotten many of these small collages made for the sale next month. I love these little frames - it makes these 4" canvases look just a tad bit more finished. Have a good week!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I wish I ran into goat traffic now and again. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog the other week.

sorry i haven't been by in a while. i love the photo of the goats--what gorgeous scenery. roads are the unfortunate blemishes of our civilization. but in this photo that seems kept in check somehow. the natural beauty overpowers.

Love the frames!!! Those are rad. And those goats. . .I so love goats! Our neighbors have two goats they rock - they are soooo naughty!

Lovely, lovely. The collages ... the goats ... the blueberries ... the little hands ... the life. A lovely, lovely life.

One of the things I love about you is that you know how lucky you are--and you so enjoy your life.

It's inspiring.

What a great picture of the goats walking down the road! It makes me want to come and visit SOOO badly!! You are so lucky to be living in such a beautiful area!

And to think that I got excited seeing Buffaloes walking down the road in Yellowstone Park..LOL!!

(Love the idea of the frames around your collages! It really finishes them off and showcases your work nicely!!)

It looks beautiful! Have ever milked goats? We use to take care of our neighbors' animals when they went on vacation and milking the goats was the most stressful at the time and most pleasantly memorable now. I even liked drinking the milk but not use to the slight aftertaste! Your art is wonderful. Do you weave? I have a great Norwegian tapestry loom. Molly
