Flower of the Month and Free Shipping Offer in the Shop!


Every month here on the blog requires a flower so this time of the year it's time for tulips (again)! I see them everywhere now, and I don't know how many boquets I've already bought since January but they have indeed been a ray of sunshine to the very grey February days here. The last few days have indicated that spring seems to be just around the corner, but one never knows since the weather is so unpredictable during this time of the year here. ;)
 
I'm getting myself very excited and ready to host my first workshop next week and then I'm off to Paris for one week. So in the meantime I thought it would be nice to have a free worldwide shipping offer in the shop! Just use the code "spring" when you checkout and you will get free shipping on your order. The minimum order amount is 96 sek (excl. VAT). Please note that since I'm going to be in Malmö and then in Paris, that orders made after February 27th will be shipped out at March 13 at the earliest when I'm back at the office again. :)

Oh, and if you have any Paris recommendations (especially for cosy cafés and flea markets) I would love for you to share them with me in the comments section :)

Spring collage for the clothing brand Jumperfabriken!



A while ago the Gothenburg based clothing label Jumperfabriken asked me to do a collage for their website with one of their garments from their Spring/Summer 14 collection. I was so happy that they asked me to do this, since I absolutely adore their beautiful garments. Above you can see the result of it. :)

Their current collection is inspired by Paris and I wanted to capture a romantic feeling of a Parisienne's style in the picture. I feel very happy about the way it turned out and I hope you will like it too! :)

Speaking of Paris, I'm actually going there next week! So if you have any recommendations for places to visit I'd love for you to leave them in the comment section! Thank you! :)

This time I think I will take things a bit slower, relax, take lots of walks and visit museums and cafés!

See you soon!

New Year, New Plans and New Things To Come



Hi everyone,
it's been a while! December was such a crazy month workwise so I've been keeping a bit of a slow pase during the beginning of this year. I'm slowly coming back to my normal mood, making developing plans for my company, feeling inspired and grasping that a lot of exciting things are happening during this year. I will tell you about them as the year moves along :)

It's still snow and winter here, and we've had some sunny days now, finally! Last weekend I longed for a bit of a spring feeling so I visited the Palm Tree House in Gothenburg, located inside The Garden Society. January is the month when the camellia flower blossoms and it was absolutely amazing to walk around inside and look at these stunning beauties. The Palm Tree House is really a great place to go to when you need calm and to clear your thoughts. I sat on a bench there for a while and just grasped the atmosphere and the scent of soil, water and flowers.










If you happen to find yourself in Gothenburg during this month, don't miss out on the camellia flowers, they bring much joy and a feeling that spring is just around the corner. I hope you've had a good start of 2014. See you in a little while! :)

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas all my dear readers! I hope you are having a beautiful holiday and spending it with your loved ones! And I hope that you've had some time to rest in between your Christmas preparations! :)

The last few days in the city have been chilly and sunny and last weekend I finally got myself a tiny little Christmas tree! I've been working until the last minute, packing orders and finishing things in time for the holidays. Yesterday I left my studio in Gothenburg and enjoyed the sunshine and the beautiful landscape along the highway with music in my ears during my three hour bus ride to southern Sweden.

I'm at my parents' place now, cuddled up in an armchair with a cup of coffee. I'm planning on getting a lot of rest, eating good food and spending time with my family and friends while I'm here. This year has gone by so fast and it has been absolutely amazing! I hope that 2014 will be just as good. :)

Above: a picture of my little Christmas tree in my Gothenburg apartment :)

Enjoy your holiday! :) See you soon!
