I might declair Monday the official Black and White photography day, I am just so inspired by this "new" perspective. Today was the first day of Fall vacation and since I needed some felt for a custom order the children and I took a trip downtown to Oslo.
I had my old trusty compact camera along and as always we enjoyed the views on our journey.
Noway Design had a new window display for autumn.
Finally we arrived at Husfliden for some yarn for my pjoning project and thread. This is their pretty symbol outside the shop. My children had behaved so wonderfully and were perhaps even a bit unusually well-mannered... until we got to Husfliden. While I had my back turned looking at some yarn I hear my 8 year old tearing through the shop after my 4 year old. I had to stop that. I couldn't be banned from Husfliden! They now offer ever 9th ball of yarn for free!
By this time we were hungry and the park bench in front of the parliment building was the perfect spot for people watching, a bite to eat, and to rest our weary feet a bit.
Lilly seems mesmerized here by the birds that were flitting around close by.
Oslo is a beautiful city. Here it is 11.15 am and our bellies are full as we head down the main street to Panduro Hobby shop for a half meter of felt. We had a lovely trip to the city.
These jet black buttons that I have been dying to show you and have you ohhh and ahhh over with me are perfect for my Monday B&W theme. I bought handfulls of these pretties and even have an idea of what I would like to do with them!
I have a few sets of several, some pairs and many many singles. Most of them are different. I was lucky enough to find a button collector at the flea market we went to in Maine. He had such gorgeous ones and picking was no easy task.
