Happy Weekend!


The house is decorated for the holidays! This year I’ve again kept it very simple but still with that Christmas feel I love so much. String lights, paper stars, white and greenery. And here’s what I’ll be listening to when I ‘ll light that first candle on Sunday. We’re not religious at all, but it’s a nice tradition and count down to Christmas.

Happy weekend and Advent 1st!

A Collector


On Saturday Sanna and I went to the Christmas market in Gamla Stan and after a nice stroll went back to her place for dinner. I brought my camera and snapped away while there.



Both Sanna and Sebastian love growing their own herbs and spices. both in the courtyard below the apartment and in the kitchen.




But most of all they love collecting. Avidly. The scour the auction houses and car boot sales on weekends and have some awesome finds.



Like this amber, jade groupe on top of a 1930’s cabinet.



And this 1960’s image of a mother and her baby which is one os Sanna's favorites and she's created a cute arrangement of matching objects around it in the bedroom.



I love this vintage bon-bon tin. Sanna does too, so much so that she has two!



In the living room she keeps her ever growing collection of all things turquoise & co.



Many of the finds are from Småland where she and her family spend summer holidays going to auctions, estate sales and flea markets.



Sanna likes all things vintage as you can tell so when she happens to come across a magazine from 1969 with her mom on the cover she picks that up too:).

Advent Calendar 2012


I’ve said it before. An eighteen year old doesn’t NEED an advent calendar. But I still wanted to make him one. Last year’s was such a success with scratch tickets so I repeated it this year. He didn’t win a whole lot but the calendar still lasted all the way until Easter with small wins, new tickets etc. Fun!

This year, I used the alphabet stamp set to stamp 1-24 on little envelopes and added a few stickers to the front of an old refrigerator ware container.

Fingers crossed Wille gets rich this year!
