Bits of my weekend

So, this weekend turned out to be quite busy. M went away all weeken and Otto and I was by ourselves. Lots of coffee with friends, playtime in the park, nice dinners every night (forgot the camera though) and today nice glywine-party. I did have some time to craft as well, as you can see on our dinnertable. I am making reflect-broches, perfect for the dark winter! And earrings.

Blanca Helga

My next couple of posts are likely to be about my inspiring trip to Madrid! Returned yesterday very content and happy. First out is my encounter with lovely Blanca Helga whos work I found so inspiring. She shares the studio with my dear friend Andra. To my surprise, I found a picture of my friend Elisabeth Dunker on Blancas wall, wich brought a lot of laughs and conversation. More from Madrid to come, stay with me the next couple of days.

Father improving

Fathers day.
The hospital.
Joy. In small, small steps, he is improving.
He got his swallowingfunction back and can now eat.
So happy I had to bake him muffins.
He is the only one in the hospital who cherish the food.
Could be he hasn´t eaten for 4 weeks. 12 kilos less of him.
But his ability to show feelings and his great sense of humor
takes him far.

Lovely, lovely little dad. How proud I am of you.

And I have realized what an amazing person you are.

Lovely pets

Check out Have you met miss Jones posted by Maaret over at Visual Notes! I love how the porcelain-pets are placed in the drawers. Made me laugh.

For inspiration...

Some excellent persons I visist as often I can; (from left) Dear Sara Blohmé who I seem to constantly long for, Sandra Juto who is in Lula but who I funnily never have met, Kate Miss illustraions on photos and whos necklace I wear everyday. I only know her through the blog but she brightens my days. Dear Elisabeth Dunker who I was in the same class with for three years at HDK, and Lena Sjöberg, who I don´t know but admire for her precise illustrations. Let these girls brighten your grey November-day!

Visiting friends

Lunch at dear Lisa. Her and her husbands homebuilt kitchen is lovely! So simple, yet stylish.

While being in the neighbourhood, we also visited Annis and Johns new place. A lovely, light dream in blocks to envy. The litle boys hit it off right away. Such a warm and inspiring afternoon. I thank god for my friends. I cherish you all!

Longing for light

So, winter is slowly taking over our corner of the world. This means days being shorter and nights longer. The sun sets at 4 pm right now and this really affects people. Being used to the sun set at 11 pm in the summer, this is quite a change. Every year, the same. We curse the darkness and cherish light. As if it´s something new every year. Luckily, I have my little sunbeam, Otto. Or should I say rainbow?
