His mania

He bought 40 new different dishes on fleamarkets in the north. And new cups. And soup-bowls. Our car was like one of a gypsyfamily. And after first day at work he came home with a secondhand-bag shouting "I´m sorry". It contained this last beauty and six cups. I try and be hard and make it not getting too crazy, but, I must admit, I love them too.

For me, for you

Ye-haa! Finally my necklace from Kate Miss arrived. I am so very happy about it, and so is little Otto who loves to play with it whenever I hold him. Kate is very talented, and I got to know abou her through the blog. She lives in Brooklyn, wich I miss a lot, so I feel I have a piece of lovely New York around my neck! Check out more from For me, for you here.

Good day

Friday was a good day. I went to my favorite papershop Map, bought two pairs of Italian leather shoes I shouldn´t have but couldn´t resist, and played all day with lovely little Otto. Later on lovely Maria came over for a really nice, and looong meal and way to much Calvados.

The IKEA wonder

Took little Otto and went to Liljevalchs Art museum to see the exhibition about Ikeas history. They really are a unique, and have produced so much cool design I had no idea was IKEA. Specially the stuff fom the 50´s. Loved it, although I have a love-hate-relationship with Ikea today.

the House

I simply love this place. This is the house where my grandmother was born. It´s remote. She had to walk one hour through the woods to school everyday. The house has a wonderful energy, and it´s right near the water. It´s full of old treasures, like her old shoes I found under the stair. The old match-labels, and great-grandmothers craft-diploma from 1944 that she recieved for her weavery. It´s like a small museum of my ancestors. And a different time.

Going North

Should´t have...

Couldn´t resist them. Sale on minirodini and Snogg. No later than last week I said "No more suff ", but I seem to forget it everytime I run into something like this. They aren´t even anything for him to grow into so double-sin for me this time. Oh well. I will enjoy seeing him
in them.
Other sins I have is my craving for cinnamon-rolls. I can have a latte and a cinnamon-roll everyday. What is your?

Myrica Design

Going to Göksholm this weekend for a crayfish-party. Hopefully I will see sweet Myrica there, and I got so inspired when I saw her latest news just now. Supermario is the name of her new plates and headboard. Love it!

August sky

At grandma´s again, on the island. The sky in August. Every single evening is a different scene. Theres really no point in taking pictures of the sunset, but you know - sometimes it´s just hard not to.
