Mom is Happy When we went to the Craft Market in Dalarna (the area Dalecarlia in Sweden) this summer I sat in the backseat of the car by myself (no brother!) and created! I brought a big plastic bag filled with magazine clippings and my big Art journal, and then I sat there and cut and glued. I’m so lucky that I don’t get carsick! The trip was over way fast because I had so much fun in the car! It was like a traveling mini studio! Plus we did all kinds of fun stops in cute towns (Säter for example) and at small thrift shoppes along the road!

I bought this heart shaped mini bowl:

Thrifted metal
Isn’t it lovely? And also a tin can in orange flower bliss:

Necklace I boughtAt the market I bought a necklace with different colored stones that hang down – I adore this style of necklace! I also got a white candle holder with some incense oil that you poor in a little plate on top of the candle – it will smell lovely! And this hand carved coffee spoon:

Isn’t it a beautiful spoon? I love it so much. It’s tiny and was way too cheap for the time it must’ve taken to make it!

This is a spread I did last week in my diary:
Diary spread
A few drawings and some writing from the exhibition at East Asia Museum (?stasiatiska in Stockholm).

Also thrifted these green books that I won’t read but recycle:

Green covers
I make notebooks out of the covers! Love these green covers so much! I was so happy about the covers that I even forgot to look inside before I bought them. I was happy to discover that some of the pages has fun illustrations that I will use in collages (more recycling)!

I got the big one, and I will use it to store… pens or something like that. Something to create with I think, hehe.

What I got at the museum:
Mirror me
A mirror with a lotus flower and these Chinese cell phone charms that is just so darn… charming!? Tiny treasures makes me smile.

Happy thrift summer!
