What have I been watching #22

 Hi guys! Time for another film/TV post....stuff I've been loving lately:) Guys....I've been obsessing over European crime drama shows, especially the Nordic Noir genre . Images form imdb.com  (streamed from Netflix or Amazon unless otherwise stated) 1) Sorjonen ("Bordertown" on Netlfix) A great show, with a lead who's the Finnish equivalent of Sherlock Holmes, with his own version of Moriarty (the character of Maasalo). Not only does this show have great crime plot lines, the personal drama is pretty awesome as well. Love love love. 2) The Valhalla Murders Too bad there's only one season of this show. Love the lead actress Nìna Filipusdøttir who played the policewoman Kata, and her crime profiler partner Arnar (played by Björn Thors). 3) Shetland Not really of the Nordic Noir genre, but it has the same kinda vibe. A great crime drama series, with an awesome Scottish setting. (As a knitter, Shetland has a special place in my heart:D) 4) The Raven As an Edgar A

Celebrating the little things

 I know these past few months have been super hard for the whole world, but I have to keep reminding myself that every day we are here and alive is a blessing. (Being able to post these silly outfit posts is something I try not to take for granted.) This year's Mother's Day, we were still unable to get together, but we were still able to drop by and see my mom's and my husband's mum. Even though it's not the best situation, I am still glad that we were able to "celebrate" it. old dress from Urban Outfitters, Muji shirt, Vans slip on Luckily, my mom and in-laws have been vaccinated. YAY! How was your weekend?

 I can't believe it's May already, you guys! Ack! This year is going so fast and so slow at the same time, if you know what I mean.... Anyhoo, I thought that since I'm not buying a lot of new clothes this year, I might as well wear the stuff I made more often. This sweater was first featured in 2018 here , wearing the EXACT. SAME. OUTFIT. Hey! If it works, right? LOL sweater I knitted, BDG jeans, Vans slip ons Do you find you're buying less clothes/shoes and accessories f because of the pandemic, or is everything pretty much the same? PS I did acquire a new easel (thanks, hubby!). Here's the video I did showing my first impression of it:D

Just for the heck it

 Wearing a dress for the first time since...well...forever, it feels like. I figured....why not? old dress I sewed, worn with old leggings, Ecco boots Had to pick up my new prescription eyeglasses. So weird, you guys. There's no one in the mall because it's only for essentials now. It's actually good to see people and establishments taking the stay-at-home order seriously (although we still have people here in Ontario having anti-mask/anti-lockdown protests and such. I can't even😔) What have you been up to?

Inspiration: Jeremy Mann

Jeremy Mann is one of my fave artists, you guys! In case you don't know who he is...  " Jeremy Mann (b. 1979) is an American artist living and working in San Francisco, California. He graduated Cum Laude from Ohio University in 2002 where he received his BFA and in 2008 he received his MFA from the Academy of Art University in California. He is exhibited and represented both nationally and internationally. His paintings have been featured in a wide variety of publications including American Art Collector, and a documentary has been made about the artist and his work, entitled “A Solitary Mann” by Loic Zimmerman." - from gallery1261.com He is known the most for his figurative works and city scapes, but it is his paintings done in plein air (paintings done outside instead of in a studio) that have really spoken to me. all images from redrabbit7.com A sample of his works Here are my two YouTube videos, where I show his two plein air books. It is these two books that really m

 We are back in lockdown again, so no going out, even for church or anything like that. What does that mean? More Tv watch time! LOLZ Here are some shows/films I've seen lately that I like/love: (all images from imdb.com)  Godzilla vs Kong Love love love this film! My kiddos and I are big fans of both franchises, so this was a no-brainer. The fight scenes were the best part TBH. The human acting...not so much...LOLZ (although it does have Aleksander Skarsgard, so.....) His House An awesome psychological horror with brilliant acting from the two leads: Sope Dirisu and Wunmi Mosaku. Wunmi is in the upcoming Loki series so I'm so excited to see her in it! Slaughterhouse Rulez A pretty gory horror/comedy, but it has Michael Sheen and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost...can't go wrong with these guys.      Staged Speaking of Michael Sheen, I finally had a chance to see the show Staged...and oh em gee....what a freaking hilarious show. I've always loved them both in Good Omens, so it

 Belated Happy Easter to those who celebrated yesterday:) Last year, Easter celebrations were cancelled. This year, our church was allowed to have 15% of its congregation. We were lucky enough to have booked tickets (yes....you book tickets for church now). It was probably the smallest Easter mass I have ever seen, but nonetheless, it was great to be able to celebrate it, and also...the one time we all got the chance to dress up (well....me for sure anyhoo) :D. old Zara jacket and jumpsuit I sewed, Ecco boots How was your weekend? Did you celebrate Easter?
