Bits of my weekend...

...Lisa and I flew to the lovely island Gotland to visit our friend Joel. It was such a good time to walkby the ocean, talk for hours, spend time in the specious apartment they have been so lucky to find, and relaxing. I lived there for several years. I took a nostalgic walk to my old studio, the graphic workshop. How many hours haven´t I spent there, making prints? Recharged and back in Stockholm.

Violet on the wall

Look how lovely Studio Violets poster became as wallpaper.
Unfortunaetly, I can´t remember where I found this picture, so I can´t give cred,
but perhaps somebody can help me out?

A year ago

Looking through my archives, and this is a glimpse from our home almost one year ago. It gives me a feeling of spring. It better be here soon, I´m so tired of this never-ending winter.

As soon as I turn my back... Our happy and energetic boy climbes everything, loves to pour out water and calls everything Bajs (poop).

Oh, here you also get a glimpse of our half-made bathroom. We did it a budget-way, we painted the tiles black with floorpaint (actually turns out really nice, I can recommend it) and put decals on the blue board. The bathtub we found at Nacka byggnadsvård, a place that preserves old original building-parts and original decorations.

Team Hawaii

Josefine from Nu Agency, a Stockholm-based illustrator-agency visisted me at work this week and showed her wonderful creators. I particularly fell for Team Hawaii. Check out NuAgency for great illustrators!

I´m so in love with this new restaurant that just opened up in Stockholm. BAR is a place where you choose your own fish/meat and have it cooked. The commodities are excellent and the french inspired ware-house interior as well.

50´s dress

Next weekend is fancy family-dinner-time. Sick of my black clothes and the winter so I really felt like being bright. And to my happiness (a bit of an indian expression there) I found this lovely dress at Sivletto! The shop, hair-salong, garage, café at Malmgårdsvägen in Stockholm never disappoints me. I am fixing my camera at the moment so I´m borrowing some pictures from their site to let you know what a mecka it is for rock-a-billys and lovers of the 50´s.

Soon I´ll be back with some pics of my own.

Great lights

Here are some lights I found in a shop in Madrid. Just regular shades on different sticks. Good idea isn´t it? Would like it in our entrance at home.

This is low days for the blog. I´m sick at the moment and my camera is broken. I´m trying to give you guys inspiring stuff from my archives, and yummy links. I hope you won´t get bored and leave. I am very happy to have so many new followers. This months you are twice as many visitors and t makes me so happy. Promise to do a better job as soon as I and the camera has recovered.
