I will not pretend that I have time and energy to write a long post. I do want to share some recent photos though. Picturing work, friends and life.

I just love our studio neighbor Birgit & Benny’s dresses. The one below Eivor is new for the summer. The one above is called Rut, I’m thinking of getting it in black. Don’t miss to check out their turbans as well

Flowery Berit.

Swedish Midsummer and daughter leaving for USA

The longest day of the year, Midsummer. Herring, potatoes, chives, pie, strawberries and cream, a cold lake, beer and schnapps, sun and rain.. Sweden – as Swedish as it can be.



And she. Ungen min. Dearest daughter is leaving for California for a couple of weeks. Follow her blog here.

Lush green, Kinfolk and gathering

This time of the year. The flowers, the soft air, mom and my young niece. Best time of the year. Summer.


And on top of above scenery, a new issue of Kinfolk Magazine. The appealing Kinfolk spirit “simple ways to spend time together” seems more relevant than ever. At least if you listen to trend oracles like Li Edelkoort (does anyone?). ” Trend Union’s new season for summer 2015 is called GATHERING“. Trendy or not that’s how we want to do it, spend time together.

Summer sweets

The summer fleas are opening. You see them all over on the country side – the flea store signs “Loppis”. Every year there are more of them. In old barns, gymnastics halls, private basements, garages.. People want to get rid of things. And then there are people who just can’t get enough. Hoarders.  Gosh I’m not one of them, am I? Don’t act compulsive anyway. At least I don’t think so.

This flea, Ullas loppis in Järbo is a favorite. More of my finds here.

A tipi, and Klara

The mini gathering we had today me and Klara. Shooting for the shop. Cold coffee, a few mosquitos and fresh spurce buds. Gosh they taste good, a little bit like sorrel.


Klara brought a bag with cones, I brought a dotty swimsuit, for Klara. I rarely swim in cold Swedish lakes. The tipi was actually nice to sit in.


The rug is called Commedia dell’Arte.

Swedish summer

Sweden is magical this time of the year. Just can’t get enough. None of us. More here.

Before and after. Small home redo over at Design Sponge. Happy to see Mr Pirum and my yellow guy Apple Papple here and there.

Sandals I need.

We went for a ride

To the Ocean valley if you translate it weird. What a beautiful place. Peaceful. Grand. The sheeps where fun too. Soft and friendly. Have a nice weekend folks. I’ll blog some more children’s books.

This weekend in my neighborhood, wow.

Tråkigt för tallarna.

Evil rock and laundry

Single mama this week too (hello husband). Yesterday was just one of those days. Catching up on laundry and picking up the house. Well you hear. So we took the car to visit some friends instead. The kids played all day. Then, on our way home, an evil rock suddenly turned up from nowhere on the sand road and cut big hole in the deck. Luckily there was good climbing trees near where we was stranded as well.

Did the Gibson roll via Sara Lynn Paige’s great tutorial today. Much steadier than my originally.

I like Tiger Hellström’s blog Hello Kiddo.

(More children’s books are coming.)
