I've been tagged by lovely Kim, otherwise known as slinkymalinkicat. Thank you Kim! So here are my answers:

What is your current obsession?
Vintage lace.

What is your weirdest obsession?

What are you wearing today?
Jeans and a pink top.

What's for dinner?
New potatoes, curds with sour cream and dill from our garden. Very Latvian.

One Hundred Years of Solitude.

What's the last thing you bought?
Jade green bandana. Bandanas, head wraps and hats are another obsession of mine.

What are you listening to right now?
Birds through open window and humming of my computer. I seldom listen to music when at computer.

What is your favourite ice-cream flavour?

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
I think of Kim as very open and kind hearted. I admire her for relocation to the middle of nowhere :) and I adore her Etsy shop.

If you could have house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Right here where I am, in my little home town.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Any sunny beach.

Which language do you want to learn?
Would love to improve my French.

Who do you want to meet right now?
Friends in Rīga.

What is your favourite colour?
Red, white (my summer colour) and green (it's slowly growing on me).

What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
Anything linen.

What is your favourite magazine?
I read magazines only occasionally. Depends on mood, cover and content.

If you had a £100 now, what would you spend it on?
Books. In a bookshop there's always something I want to buy. Or I could donate it to the local animal shelter. Decisions, decisions!

What is you favourite time of the day?
Evening. I'm especially fond of long evenings in May and June.

Do you admire anyone's style?
People who remain positive in the face of adversity. I totally agree with Kim on this.

Describe your personal style?

What are you going to do after this?
Mix some paint.

What are your favourite movies?
Ed Wood, 3-iron, Dead Man (and the list goes on).

What is your favourite fruit?

What inspires you?
People. Anything people do, say or create.

What music do you like this week?
Traditional midsummer songs and the new CD by Latvian post-folk band Iļģi. Here's their newest video:

What is your dream job?
Travel journalist.

What is stopping you?
Nothing. I'm keeping this as an open option for the times when I'll get tired of what I'm doing right now which might never happen though.

If you could change something in the world to make it better place what would that be?
I would cure all the sick. Wish I had superpowers :)

Something about yourself that makes no sense?
I don't like gluing.

What is your favourite tool?
Brush. I don't mind paining walls, but smaller surfaces are fine too.

The rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.

  1. Great answers! Thank you for tagging me. I don't always fill these out, but you caught me in a ponderous mood. ; ) Have a great weekend.

  2. I agree with you - the right mood is essential! It makes sense only when it's fun :)

  3. It was lovely getting to know you better Rasa. Kaleidescopes are beautiful, so are sunny beaches .....
    Thanks for the nice things you said about me, and my shop!
