Location, location, location

Have you ever wondered why all the classy magazines have their spring/summer-collection photos taken in fancy places like Bahamas, Jamaica or Miami Beach? Well... I am sure there are a few things differently (and I am not saying better) there than in exotic place like Finland in beautiful (ha!) January afternoon. For example there's probably less...

Snow



Wind (and wind+snow)



Both models and the photographer wearing not so glam rubber boots



Blurry pictures due to snow, shaky freezing hands and foggy lens



Running after the objects supposed to be photographed (gone with the wind)




Oh dear. Maybe I just need to wait a day or two until the weather is more spring-ly. If anyone has an extra share of sunshine or otherwise beautiful days I would be interested in purchasing. Please contact me asap.

Happy Thursday (come rain or shine)!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Mia, I have just got home from my Mum and Dad's. No cheery sunshine there that I can sell you but I did find a snowdrop peeping up in their garden, that's about the best I can do for you my dear. Dull and dreary here but the temperature got up to 13c today...almost The Bahamas...no perhaps not ;0)
Keep warm, it looks SO cold still for you.
Love Jane x

Oh dear Mia! I think you need to fly off somewhere tropical so you can photograph your creations, strickly for work purposes of course!!! ;)
We had about 10c today but damp and dismal I'm afraid.
Love the new bag!!
Have a lovely evening. :)

You should definitely be allowed a budget, which enables you to fly off to sunnier climes :0)
Love the beautiful new bag Mia.

Love your bag whether rain, snow, wind or sunshine! 18 inches of snow in Vermont and sun trying to break through, but it took all day to come! Loved your photos as always!! xoRobin❤

Kerry said...

Funny! Our snow is long gone but I ache for more light and some sun x

Lyn Armstrong said...

Keswick was almost tropical this morning at 11c - most unusual.

Mia said...

Hi Jane,

A snowdrop or two would cheer me up but it'll definitely take SOME time before anything will grow in our garden *sigh* as they've "promised" very cold for weekend again (-25C)... So I am just dreaming of your 13!!

Have a wonderful weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Viv,

I think so too! It would be lovely to go for week or two and see some sun...Oh, one can only dream!

Have a lovely day too and weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hi Helen,

I actually got a few good ones too (when taken very near to our house - the wind didn't get me there) but many, many of these too :)

I am happy to make you smile!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Thank you, Clare!

Happy greetings from snowy Finland!

Mia said...

I know, Jill, I know! Bahamas for a week or two would do :)

Have a wonderful weekend coming soon!

Hello Robin!

18" is quite a lot, I think we have some 21" or so, and most of that came today :) or it feels like it.

Have a sunny day and fantastic weekend soon!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hi Kerry!

Is all the snow gone? Wow! But I agree, it can be quite dark and gloomy if it's all gray, at least our landscape is pretty and white!

Have a good day!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Oh dear, Lyn, that sounds like The Bahamas to me, our weekend will be again around -25c... *sigh*

Enjoy your beautiful weather and have a great weekend coming!

Yours,
Mia

Teje said...

Hei Mia! Sorry but I think you need to wait more than few days...I try to send you soon some sun! You have made lovely bag - those colours look very 'January' for me!
See you soon and keep inside your lovely warm home!

Mia said...

Thank you so much, Teje, it actually shined today for couple of hours!!! So the sun you sent arrived!

Have a wonderful weekend and please keep
a) sending more sun
b) posting sunny pictures at your blog

Thank you :)

Yours,
Mia

Oh dear, you sound thoroughly fed-up with it all. We have moody dark skies and rain at the moment, it has rained most of the week and doesn't look set to stop. Hope there is a break in the weather for you soon and the sun peeps through! Have a lovely weekend. Bethx

Mia said...

Hi Beth!

It shines as we speak!!!! It shines!!! It's -20c but who cares when sun shines!

Happy and sunny weekend to you too!

Yours,
Mia

periwinkle said...

We had a tiny bit of sun and blue sky the past few days but today it's all grey and rain and Billy Windys is blowing a gale .... I think snow would be loads better than this .

Mia said...

Sorry to hear your gray day, Lisa :(
It's not snowing here now but it's again quite cold, -22c, huh. Spring, please!

Have a happy weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Pam said...

Hi Mia, hope the weekend brought you a little sun, if not warmth. A glimpse of Spring here the other day - brightness, no rain or snow or ice, and a desire to start on the garden.
It didn't last long, but reminded us that this winter will not last forever!
Love the new bag,
P xx

Hi Mia- another blog award for you! Hidden in the post, scroll down! http://verykerryberry.blogspot.com/2011/01/catch-ups.html Kerry x

Mia said...

Hi Pam,

Thank you for the hope :) that the spring will come eventually! It storms/winds/snows again here but it's more and more light each day. So little by little...

Have a great week!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Thank you so much, Kerry!

You're too kind, happiest week to you!

Yours,
