July Memories & Pure Picturesque - Free Printable Calendar {August 2014}

Holiday greetings! I'm popping over to share a little July memories... I can't believe it's about to end. 
Luckily our holiday still continues for some time.


I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

And here is your free printable calendar template for August.

Inspirational Finds {Links to Love}

Shining bright! Finally. And they say it's getting warmer. Finally.
I'm ready to capture every beam, shimmery dust and golden moment.
Let's get inspired!

summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. you can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.

-Deb Caletti

Floral Love {Goodbye}

Welcome to Floral Love!

I'm sorry to say that this will be the last Floral Love Linky. At least for awhile.
I've enjoyed this a lot but now with being so busy this just doesn't fit in my schedule....

I'm thanking you from the bottom of my heart for having been here and sharing your gorgeous work!

I hope we'll stay in touch and I'm sure I'm going to have some meme again in the future. So, please stay with me. You're also all welcome to visit me anytime on my Facebook page - feel free to post your florals, texture works or anything else on my wall!

Dive for Dreams

“dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)”

E.E. Cummings

My June was about dreaming under my covers, reading comforting lines and favorite poems, picking flowers, daydreaming and baking. It was a cold yet beautiful month. Reflections and rain drops.

Rainy Day Ramblings

Those who are all fed up with rainy and cold summer will probably want to get me hanged... but I had been waiting for it. A whole Sunday with constant rain! It's just what I needed. To stay inside, snuggle with children, chill, read, edit...

I had it all figured out. We would sleep late but not too late to waste the day.

We would enjoy the dusky look of the nature today.

Gloomy yet green and beautiful.

We would curl up in a children bed - me and my girls - open up the curtains and watch and listen the rain beating the trees and window.

We would bake cookies and have them on the living room carpet with milk.

And in between showers I would run outside to capture the rain.

Smell the fresh air and summer flowers.

... and I would grin to think that it's not my holiday yet (what a horrible person I am). Mine will come after two weeks with sunshine.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential and fight for your dreams.
-Ashley Smith

Have a good week ahead

Inspirational Finds {Links to Love}

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
 - Rabindranath Tagore

We are still waiting those summer days and sun shine. This week I've found inspiration from the sky. 
I just love sky photography!

If you wanna get inspired as well, I've got some suggestions for you.
You could visit my Sky Love Pinterest Board and feel free to suggest Pins if you are on Pinterest.

If you are fond of textures, overlays and editing, you should check out Jessica Drossin Cloud Overlays. Even if you are not willing to spend any money on new products at the moment, these are worth of  taking time to just admire!

The Gratitude Collaborative Top Ten Skies is full of gorgeous sky photos!
This image is from Jasmine Keath Photography.

Also I just updated my blog header with a template by Angie Marie Photography and now it shows a little piece of sky there as well.

I'm happy to have a day off tomorrow! I wish you all happy weekend

Midsummer Feast

This year relaxation took over celebration. Which is pretty much all the same when you start to think of it really...  So it was all about being home in the quiet neighborhood just with the family. Sunshine and rain, naps, flowers, new potatoes, cherries, sauna, the heavenly scent of birch and a good night sleep in the midnight sun...
