night for big fires







Tonight we celebrate Valborgsmässoafton here, with big bonfires. I just came back from Slottskogen, smell like a whole fire myself.

The fire was lit, as a later addition to tradition, by the witches from Abunda samba school. They do their best scaring the kids (who love it) and I even saw one of them steal a hot dog!

Strong artist women is needed this night. A while ago Heather shared this link to inspiration:
Squeak Carnwath

and Masala Chai this:
Tayeba Begum Lipi

Now, summer is officially invited.

Hej Bibbi!

Vilka fiiiiiina bilder, som vanligt, blev man ju sugen att vara en del av det du visar... Tyvärr var jag hemma och städade, vilket jäkla göra på en valborgsmässoafton, men ibland kommer högtider och firanden lite galet i tiden, passar liksom inte in i det man själv "måste" göra.
Härligt att se/höra att utställningen verkar gå bra... Har tyvärr inte hunnit gå förbi, men sett det genom fönstret, men det räknas väl inte???
Ha det så gött och jag kollar in med jämna mellanrum, även om jag inte har kommentars tid alla gånger.
Kramkram Paula
