Back in the old days


, , , , , , , ,


Nothing is more exciting than visiting an old Norwegian log house in Modum where the old buildings from the mining and industrial company, Blaafarveværket is located.

It is fascinating to see how people used to live like just a hundred years ago. It is easy to see how hard it used to be back in the old days, but the houses and items from these days are really beautiful.

Purple and thorny, but not a rose

I bet most people like me would call it a weed. I do not even know its name, but even though most people would say it is ugly, I think it is beautiful in its own way.

Photos from Håøya


, , , , , , , ,

Hi there!

Here are some photographs from our sailboat trip in the Oslofjord. We visited an island called Håøya; a magical island in my opinion!


While exploring the island we discovered two fawns hiding in the grass. We were very close and they did not move at all until I was finished shooting pictures of them. I was so exited and my hands were shaking. I did not want to scare them. Taking a picture of them was hard, and most of the photos are blurry. :-D This is the best photography.


Since I was a little child I always enjoyed collecting crabs from the beach. Here are some having a little photoshoot with me.


Wild strawberries are the best berries in the world. There are plenty of them on this island.


A cool looking log.


Colorline Fantasy making huge waves. We had to run away from our spot not to get hit by the massive waves. :-D


There are 160 (?) goats on the island where they graze to reduce ticks. The farmer runs a shop on Håøya where he is selling bread, yoghurt, cheese and other stuff made with goat milk.

Do you recognize this owl. It is my owl drawing!Owl_mug_drawing_zazzle_Maria_Christina_Heidemann

I have a store at where you can buy stuff with this owl drawing print. I made it a while ago and have been selling some few stuff. This is the first time I buy something from myself. It is really cool to have something with a print from my own drawing. :)

Hope you like it!

Being up in the mountain, turning my phone off and just live. That is what I have been doing this Easter. It has been a good Easter.

Thought of You


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

The best inspiration in the world for me is this short film. I think it is a great piece of art. The animations are just amazing and the story is actually really beautiful.

This short film has been my favorite inspiration for a couple of years now, and it is more special for me today. The story in this film is a sad story. One of the reasons I remember this story so well is because of the end. And the truth is that I kind of never really understood the story and its end util I experienced the story in my own life. Falling in love with someone who really worked hard to get your love, and when you finally fall in love in this person, this person do not want you anymore. This was my biggest fear for many years, and I knew this would happen to me someday. And it did.

To be honest I am more than happy it happened to me. I have never been happier in my life. Today I wish it happened to me earlier. This is the reason why I love this film so much.

Everyday when I have a bad start at work I always turn on the song from this film and then everything feels a bit better.
