Grey tones

I bought a linen towel with birches on, think it's meant for the sauna(you know, to sit on:) but I will use it as a kitchen towel. A blurred kitchen picture from yesterday when it was a beautiful sunny evening, today's not.

Oh how I wish I could afford a pair of Manimals moccasins right NOW! I really fell in love with everything at Manimal when I first read about it at Lena Corwins blog.


An old picture which I've posted here before. But they are for my friends Stine and Thomas baby Olivia has finally arrived!! Grattis!! En riktig liten söting;)

Have a good day everybody!

Black hat +

Some of my plants I sowed last week (spinach, artichoke, parsley and chili among the pelargoniums) I'm going to plant them outside soon.. Or does anyone of you grow spinach indoors for example?
It rained for a while today when I took the picture, was cozy to sit inside and hear the rain drip, but after a while it turned in to big snowflakes:(( Luckily it did not snow too long and now it's sunny weather again! Crazy varying weather.

(The breakfast picture: I've been wanting to take a picture of soft-boiled egg with the tip off for a now I did it ;)

Eating & wearing

I just love this hot habanero & honey mustard, got it from my dear friend in Switzerland (Emma om du läser det här så måste vi kanske beställa en burk till snart!)

Today I presented my final exam/work to the judges (evaluation?), It went well! At least it felt so.. SO good that it's over:) Now I only have to do a presentation in front of the school, but that's next week.

The days and evenings are getting nice. Yesterday we moved up the balcony furnitures!

Documenting hundreds of shredded envelopes

I made a little documentation of the project today. This is not the finished result, more of a test and quite bad non edited pics.
It was tricky to hang them i the trees, luckily I had my sweet little sisters + dad to help me. They were a lot more happy than they seem in the picture haha (tack igen kära ni:)

I have now 4 days left to finish them up + do all the rest for the installation before I will hang it in my school.
This project has been a real challenge to me because I consider myself more as a painter. But so far I'm happy with the result, let's see how it feels by the end of next week. Yikes..!

"They are floating connected and have opened up so that they spew their insides. They are dreams, torn up by the roots. The roots are growing into each other, over and over. Like streamers after a big party."

Did you notice that the snow is almost gone! :)

THIS is so amazingly cute, I wish I was the woman sitting there:)

Spaghetti & skeleton

My day: I woke up early, shredded envelopes, worked a lot, ate something good and saw a mysterious skeleton. How did your week start?

In the air

A cute shirt I borrowed from my sister and breakfast at my dad's

Weekend is already over! I must admit I hardly have time to blog now. I have two tough weeks ahead of me, have to work like crazy to get my whole graduation project finished!

I really miss reading all of your blogs:/ Looking forward to be more active with that when all this is over! Actually there's lots of things to look forward to right now, the spring-air makes me think of one big thing: S U M M E R !

Ps. big thanks again for your answers!

Lemon verbena

I'm so in love with lemon verbena! Got these twigs from our friends, and now I want to grow my own. I heard it should be easy to grow but hard to survive our long winters. Anybody who knows the best way to grow it?

A thousand thanks to you who have answered my questions!! There's still plenty of room for more answers so please write if something pops up in your memory/mind;) THANKS!

Questions and building blocks

- How did you perceive the world when you were little?

- Can you describe your dreamland/world? (don't have to be realistic)

+ bonus question if you want:
- Is it important for you to have big dreams, even if they will never come true? why?

I would be very thankful if you could answer these questions. Feel free to write anything! Anonymously if you want, in English, Swedish or Finnish(I totally understand finnish but will answer in english)

Cats, flowers and at Granny's

A week has passed! Easter was here and I met friends who were at "home" over the holidays, fun! I also slept a night over at my grandmothers place, it was a long time since I've done that;) Some of the pictures are from her place.
What have you been up to?

Tomorrow or later this week I will ask you one or two easy questions that has to do with my final thesis! So stay tuned!
