Second sunny day in a row today! (I can't recall when that last happened!) Quite windy, though. - Anyway, I decided it was a good day for taking the bus across town for some errands (which would include a bit of walking outdoors as well).
My Christmas gift from my aunt was an annual entrance pass to this colourful place - which is a privately owned art museum. She has "contacts" there so had arranged it so that I could pick up the pass at the reception desk. Today I primarily had a look at some temporary exhibitions that won't be going on much longer.
Here are two favourites - one from a textile artist (Inka Kivalo)...
... and one from a collection of b&w photos from everyday life at a farm (photographer Christer Hansson).
Afterwards, I went over to the shopping mall, where I found Santa's reindeer still reigning - and offering 20% off on already reduced prices.
Just as well I had made no New Year resolutions, like to completely stop shopping! ;) I actually came home with four items from the sale in my favourite clothes shop. In my defense (if defense is needed), they weren't really impulse purchases (except perhaps one). I did know pretty well what I was looking for. I found one pair of trousers which are more comfortable (i.e. more stretchy) than they look, two wintry tops that match other items already in my wardrobe, and one glittery black bolero sort of cardigan that I hope might give new life to other already existing items. (Photos some other time, perhaps - when the light is right.)
