Happy Friday

John and I have been trying to look for new spots around town to take pictures. We are still getting to know this place and there is always something new to discover. Yesterday, after I got off work we went to a local recreational park. The fresh smell of rain in this woodsy terrain still in the air, a soft forest floor and serenity. which was very much needed this week. This incredible property was owned once by the late Anders Jahre, a Norwegian shipping magnate. The city purchased it quite a few years ago. The mansion itself has been made into a museum which we'll have to visit some other time.

Here are some pictures I took of this incredible place:

Sculptures in the middle of the woods

An exhibition of marble sculptures

Rocky terrain

Exposed roots

Berries still green

The mansion on the property. It is now a museum.

Sandefjord used to be a whaling town.

The most beautiful view of Sandefjord in pretty fall colors. Hard not to get inspired by this pretty place.

Bronze statue

Little paths leading into the forest

Luscious moss 

The gate in front of the entrance to the mansion.


I'm enjoying a three day weekend! There will be some new earrings on their way to the Etsy shop sometime this weekend!

How has your week been so far? What are your plans?

Enjoy your friday!
