It's been a while since I showed you what's going on in my life during just an ordinary day. I'm planning for a post like that soon, but because I've been so busy lately with the theatre and everything I have almost exclusively taken photos with my iPhone instead of my Nikon. Here's some glimpses into the last couple of months, seen through my phone camera.
Autumn came and the cemetery looked so beautiful on my evening run. I haven't had the time to run for some time now and I really miss it. I need to buy some better running clothes before I get out again though because the weather is getting too cold for my flimsy pants and hoody.
A bit fuzzy, sadly, but I love this photo! I desperately wanted to run through the leaf pile but I thought of the poor person that would have to rake it all up again the day after. I hate being a grown up sometimes. Children don't care about things like that! Or maybe they do. I don't now.
Can you think of a more beautiful place for running in the evenings? I sure can't.
One evening I spotted a spider web on the balcony.
I have edited a LOT of photos lately of my jewelry. The shop is looking gorgeous with all these new photos!
I bought a Jackalope brooch from the amazing etsy shop Hungry Designs. Isn't it so beautiful! It looks lovely among my other brooches as well.
The leaves started to look pretty and I spent most of my time outside looking for the brightest most colourful leaves I could find.
One evening the red traffic light painted David's face.
On our rehearsal weekend a couple of weeks ago I brought my lamp and kitchen chairs to the theatre as they were part of the set. Here I am waiting outside for the rest of Teater Esther.
It was a lot of work to get get everything in order but it is such a great feeling to know that we made all of it by ourselves with some help from amazing friends. Up on the ladder is Hanna, and Lisa is the one makeing sure Hanna won't fall down. On the stage behind is our light and sound guy Joel.
One morning I was all out of coffee filters. I had a Lelaina moment and used some toilet paper instead. For those of you who haven't tried this and wonder about the taste: it works surprisingly well! Especially if you use a non fuzzy toilet paper.
I made approximately 180 cookies for the play's intermission. It's a recipe from my grandmother and it makes the best cookies in the world. People went crazy for them, one man even went back to the kitchen just before the play was about to start again and knocked on the door because he just "needed more of those cookies"!
I have a post planned to show you more of that, if you're interested.
After opening night and everything felt AMAZING! It is the best feeling in the world when a play you're in is a success. It feels like flying!
Autumn is just perfect clothes weather! This over sized cardigan doesn't get used enough since it's white and only fits the weather a few days a year it seems but I think it's so pretty!
Feeling dramatic in my cape the day after opening night. Still a bit high on life and theatre.
My sister came all the way from Stockholm to see the play. It was nice to get to hug my niece Alfred again who, as you can see, is a penguin.
A selfie in the lounge just before the sunday show.
Intermission. Lovisa explains something really important to us. Lisa listens intently. I love the contrast between Lovisa's colourful clothing and Lisa's more neutral ones.
And this is from yesterday. I have started working on a new pair of shoes. I found a pair of plain white cotton shoes this summer and finally got to work yesterday. Sparkly purple and shimmering pearlescent. They look almost completely metallic today!
Love them so far, and just ordered a gazillion shoelaces on ebay. So excited to see how they turn out!

I'm soon off to work the evening shift but after that I'll be having a week off work and that is going to be just great!
Hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you.

See you soon!

Hello Hello Hello HELLO!
So I've been away from here for FOREVER it seems, but now I'm back -with photos!
Last thursday was opening night for the play Sårskorpor with my theatre group Teater Esther. We had shows on thursday, saturday and sunday and all of them were sold out! Such a great great feeling!
It was a fantastic few days and I can't believe it's already over.
David came to our Dress Rehearsal and filmed it so I might show you a few clips another time but he also came to one of our rehearsal days just to take photos.
I have been thinking of showing you these for a while but it just felt wrong to let you see them before people had even gotten to see the play.
So I waited.
But now, NOW I can show you!

Matilda making sure the amplifier is working as it should.
Some hugging it out before the dress rehearsal and me fastening the mic on Matilda's cheek.
Lovisa as Max, Hanna as Timo and me as Doris. In this play every actor had several roles each.
Timo and the excentric Virve getting to know eachother.
Matilda singing about the sad and lonely Isa, played by Lisa.
Doris wants to get into Joda's pants.
Lisa's other role Rolle is angry with everybody.
Joda all sad and lonely after Doris had her way with him.
We ate a lot of hotdogs in this play...
Sometimes you're just so frustrated you need to lie down on the ground and scream.
Lovisa as Dante on a date with Agneta, my other role in this play.
And the measuring tape had a small role as well. Here handled by Robert as the character Ylle.
Rolle and his friend.
Sometimes it's hard for people to meet. Sometimes it's even harder for people to want the same thing.
Hard to find a perfect fit for you.
And sometimes what you think you need isn't what you really need.
This play is a weird, fun, tragic, sweet story about friendship and love.

I know these pictures might seem really cryptic to most of you but I am so very proud of what we in Teater Esther have made and it was such a success that I just wanted to show them to you anyway. And hopefully you can see how fun we had.
We've been working on this for such a long time and it feels so strange that it's over now. We are talking about maybe putting on extra shows but we don't know anything yet, it's all about finding time you know.
I've been so tired these last couple of days and filled with a combination of complete joy over what we accomplished and sadness that it's over.
It's a weird, weird feeling, I tell you.

Autumn has been going on outside the theatre and it's been a wonderful beautiful colourful autumn this year. I feel like I've missed it because my camera isn't filled with red and yellow leaves!
I have a few things planned to change that soon though. Hopefully the last leaves stay vibrant a couple of days more so I can capure them before they leave for this season.

I've missed blogging so I hope to get back to it in the coming weeks. I have so much I want to blog about!

Oh! And don't forget! Use coupon code NEWANDFANCY to get 20% off your order in my shop! All through october, so only a few days left now!

Tjingeling!

Hej hej!

Today I wanted to show you something that's been taking up a lot of my time lately. As you probably know I'm part of a theatre group called Teater Esther. We were formed two years ago and gave our first play, Människor i solen, last october.
Now it's time for our second play. This year we have been rehearsing a play called Sårskorpor (Translates to Scabs, as in healing wounds) written by the playwright Maria Blom. It's a fun, sad, music filled, weird show about friendship where all the actors play more than one role each.
The opening night is october 17 so only one month to go now!
I will definitely tell you more about this later but for now you will have to make do with a picture of me as Doris and Agneta, the two ladies I will be playing.

Vem var det egentligen som kom på att man skulle bygga såna här konstiga hus där man bor över och under varandra utan att man faktiskt träffas? Om dom tänkte att man skulle träffas för att man bor så nära varandra så kan man verkligen påstå att de misslyckats.

En korvförsäljare kommer till kvarteret och som en skänk från ovan börjar relationer växa fram vid den nya samlingsplatsen och i husen runt omkring. Människor som blivit sårade, som isolerat sig och som haft så mycket framgång att de tappat bort sig själva börjar plötsligt mötas. Kanske har korvförsäljaren ett finger med i spelet.

Sårskorpor är en musikalisk, dansant, ombytlig, surfande och korvpropagerande komedi med tragiska undertoner. En kärleksförklaring till vänskapen och en hyllning till det mod som krävs för att faktiskt mötas.

KOMSI KOMSI! Jag lovar att det blir en toppenföreställning!

Tjingeling!

This past weekend was a hectic but fun one. The theatre group I'm part of had two days packed with rehearsals, light fixing and planning. It's getting real close now! Only 6 days until our premiere!

Here is some photos taken by David during our rehearsals yesterday. And yes, I'm the evil looking woman in a black wig, if you didn't recognise me...
Nu är det inte långt kvar hörni! På lördag och söndag (6,7 oktober kl 17.00 på Backa Kulturhus) spelar vi i Teater Esther vår uppsättning av Jonas Gardells "Människor i solen".
I förrgår fick vi tillgång till teaterlokalen och helgen har varit späckad med repetitioner, riktning av lampor, fix med scenografi och rep rep rep tills vi nästan har stupat.
Det känns så himla bra, ska ni veta! Det finns inget bättre än när man arbetat så hårt på något under en så lång tid och sedan se resultatet falla på plats.
Detta är vår första föreställning tillsammans och det är verkligen en gemensam ansträngning. Om en vecka är allt över men just nu ligger det framför oss och spänningen byggs upp för var dag som går.
Jag hoppas att ni kan komma och se oss. Det blir en väldig massa svart humor och dramatik, det kan vi lova.
Läs mer på vårt Facebook-event och boka era biljetter genom att maila till bokning@kulturtunnan.se.
Priset för biljetterna är 100:- vilket ju är oförskämt billigt.
Kom och se!
