listmaker // 1st week as a polish citizen

Big trees in a big open field. The beauty of nature! & the big blue sky & the beautiful green mark. Wuaw! It's even more beautiful when you look through your eyeball & not just an iPhone 4a lens.

..as a born&raised scandinavian you are not used to the men being very.. "gentle". No offence! The blame probably goes a lot the culture, BUT when you then come to an eastern-europe country like Poland.. You feel like a freaking princess!👸🏻 Here's a little story about some polish gentlemen that made my day..

I went out for a little bikeride, but quickly discovered both tires were flat. Some men were working on the the neighbours house, laughed a little & started babbling in polish to me, I asked if he spoke english, but he just kept on speaking polish (lol), he then made a sign for me to follow & he quickly found a pump for my bike & the other guys who worked on the house joined & started pumping my bike. Ain't a lucky one? Oh yes, I felt like a princess. I said one of necessary words you need to know in any language: dziękuję. You guessed it? Well, it means "Thank you". He repeated the word a couple a times, chuckled & continued speaking polish. Oh well, can't wait to actually understand what they are saying, but until now I can only smile & wave goodbye to the nice gentlemen. Being nice, no matter how - just make the day. Even more when it's to strangers.. credit to the polish people!

So.. after this cute little story, to make you feel warm about the heart & hopefully a little smile.. I'm gonna continue with a little list of what I like about Poland so far. So if you ever wonder about going to Poland this could hopefully be a little helpful for you :)

  • since we're on it.. The polish Gentlemen !!
  • when you're from Scandinavia.. Poland is extremely cheap - mega PLUS. I've even heard it's one of the cheapest countries in Europe. 
  • they have HUGE cheap second-hand stores with line upon line upon line upon line upo.. yeah, you get the point - filled with clothes, clothes & more clothes + some smaller cute ones. I once found a leatherjacket for only 12 zloty or a shirt for only 3 zloty. (you figure out the valuta, hah!) So new wardrobe for me. (which sounds like a dream when you have been living in a suitcase for about a year..)
  • they have the weirdest, most random tastes in gum. But it's goood. I love trying new tastes & it's cheap. It's a win-winA little polish lesson for you: gum is guma (go-oma) in polish. You're welcome!
  • since we're talking about weird combinations of tastes'n'stuff.. The juice is with every fruit and every mix you can think of + 11 more.. I'm telling ya. My tastebuds are defiantly on adventures down here. 
  • They've got flipping tictac MINIONS!!! if you're not following my instagram, first of all: shame on you! Second of all: you missed the epic photo of my new mini-minions friends in tictac-version!! But I've got your back ;) Click here too see the photo.
  •  I get to use & see the letters C, Z & W a looot more.. cause we don't use'em much where I lived before.. unless you were in a WC-zone? But who is? I haven't even heard of it. Anywaaays.. Next!
  • New nature, cities, places, buildings.. To explore! I love exploring. New places to bike, new places to photograph, new people to meet, new houses to get inspired by, new food to taste.. I'm just trying to enjoy the magic of new beginnings. #wanderlust (some small travel guides may appear on the blog sooner or later)
  •  Street-entertainers. I don't know if that has an 'official' word or name? But that's my word for it. They have those in Scandinavia too, but it's just like they have a little more here.. & then the creativity flows a little more. At least there's this bubble-guy. Who makes huuuge & beautiful bubbles who attracts every child & uh.. Childlike-soul like me :)
This beautiful garden is polish nature, my friends. My new favorite place to bike too.. Soon I'll bring my real camera, but for this listmaker-post all I'll give you is a iPhone-shot. You're welcome. It looks like a winemark, but idk what it is.

inspiring places // fabrikanterne

In one of the many towns I've lived in Vejle, in southeast of Denmark, is a city who is defently starting to earning it's right to a second glance. Why? Well, one of them is a place I'm gonna highlight a little today. The place is called:  Fabrikanterne.

They are a bunch of creative people and artists pursuing their dreamsI Super friendly & always open for a chat. They gladly tell you about the story behind and give you a little tour into where they make their magic happen. (The woman over is one of the creative souls behind this project)

Long story short, I asked to take some shots and make a blogpost and they clapped in their creative hands and gave me free space to invade their beautiful world. Here's a little taste of what their world looks like through my lens.

Not only do they make art. Their place is ART. I mean.. look at this - it makes my interior-heart happy!

A pillar is not a threat. Put some painting on and voilá!  More art for the world

They've kept some of the old walls from the days where this place used to be a discoteque filt with grafitti and history which makes it original, raw & creative, but still new and stylish with the white-painted walls. Here's a little shot of some of the 'cuter' grafitti art <3

The creative woman behind @patternlike was one of the strong women I talked to. I'm featuring her inspiring story in a blogpost - coming soon - where also more of her art is coming up!

I just love the humor in this place - I mean.. CUT THE CRAP.

I will forever&ever be fascinated by the patience, hours and precision, that has been put in to these beautiful, handcrafted small castles and mini-worlds. I'm forever a fan! If you are hungry for more of the amazing work by this incredible artist Li-Yu, then here's her Instagram so hurry up, GO & follow her already!

& ofc if you are a creative soul you need creative books to read and find inspiration from. I'm a book- & library-FAN so everything book-ish needs to be captured - you have been warned!

More books (I already warned ya) and art - what a lovely combination.

"Did somebody loose their lips?" No, no, no.. this is what I call creativity on a high level. These lips are in every colour you can dream of - & these are CRAYONS. @lucyreadart has used her OWN lips as a model - go follow her for more creative lip-art!

A little shoutout to @bordingaardkeramik for amazing so beautiful ceramic - I would love to have a couple of those on my kitchen table filled with fresh springflowers!

Woah, there is nothing polished, 'perfect' or mainstream about this. This is unique, handcrafted, raw and absolutely incredible beautiful - and just my taste & I'm not even a diamond-girl. So @lundbladgraa you surely did something right! In love with your jewelries!

One of the things that I love about this place is that it changes all the time. New art, new styles, new people, new interior, new decor.. It's a place where there is new life and always something new that catches your eye.

YES, admitted. I like yarn. & I love colours! Especially when they are displayed in RAINBOW!

UNICORNS - 1 more reason to love this place!

YES, this is just INCREDIBLY AMAZING !!! #enoughsaid

Here's a mini shoutout to a beautiful woman @kirstinefalk (<- follow her instagram for more pretty art) I love how she draw simple and a childlike lines in the most beautiful way. I'm a fan!

"TAK FOR IDAG" - meaning "thank you for today" in danish.

& last but not least - Again, the humor in this place! I can't even. AHAHAHA! I need my iPhone-emojis now. Imagine the crying-laughing-smiley ;)

 

There are many many more artists to discover and admire in this place - obviously. So sorry for you guys that I missed - maybe next time! But most of the art and the artist can be found on their heir homepage & their Instagram - all of their work are truly amazing and no doubt about the awesome artists - so watch out for more post coming about this place and the people there!

I hope you enjoyed this snaps, got some new people to follow on instagram and last, but not least got a little inspired.

Over & out
