So in love with this bracelet, made by my friend Carina Östlund aka Chanelta & Love my bib.
If you are a sucker for fences you might want to visit Svenska Gärdsgårdar and follow their Instagram account. Magical.
The traditional Swedish round pole fence, Gärdesgård/Gärdsgård is built with natural materials from locally grown timber, using sustainable methods:
“These traditional fences almost disappared from the landscape during the 20th century but somehow the handicraft managed to survive, and now its steadily getting more popular again. Svenska gärdsgårdar builds fences in the traditional style and stay true to the old fashion way of building, only using wood throughout the whole construction, which gives you a environmental friendly fence without a single nail in it! A well built gärdsgård fence is beautiful to look at, and stands for many years, aging with grace.”
Looking forward to November when Mimmi Staaf Möbelmakeri & Betongruvan will come to us and hold a macramé workshop here in Gothenburg! And I will be talking about the Fine Little Day book.

Mogu Takahashi. N o o n e can understand how she can keep up the massive outpouring of imagery she produces. Drawings, paintings, dolls, sculptures, installations, ceramics etc. And its not just quantity we are talking about, but quality as well. That lady is amazing.

This kind of re-design. Stumbled on the work of Gothenburg based furniture designer Emil Roiivar the other day. Actually his studio is based in the same house where I live. Hope to be able to show you more of his work further on!
You know the amazing chairs I wrote about a couple of days ago, similar ones are to be find for sale at Bukowskis this very moment and for about 19 hours ahead (thanks for the tip Aja). Turned out that they are theatre chairs from Malmö Stadsteaters lilla scen, Intiman designed by David Helldén.
A new online venture Print all over me. Read more about it at Sight Unseen. And see nice collection here. Prints in this post by New Friends.
Incredibly happy right now. Look at the present Carina brought back to me from “over there”. Birch paper straws! Must have been made for me only. If I ever do a list with the greatest presents of the world, these ones would have a good chance to qualify in the top three.
You readers are not in to comment that much these days. Last post got 12 comments though (well one was from me). Too many steps I know. Seems easier in Instagram, more direct as you say. Yesterday I asked for help in a desperate post and got over 230 comments in just a couple of hours. Wow, Instagram sure is the shit. Don’t know why it took so long for me to realise that, although I was quick to get it a couple of weeks after it launched (important to me to state that). Anyway I got new glasses and I got the coolest straws in the world. Even if you too have good friends, maybe you don’t have that kind of a friend who realize the value of a birch paper straws present. So get them yourself here.
