Collecting Snow Globes

Collecting Snow Globes

I have a very small collection of Snow globes in my Christmas box, that we take down each year in December (although not last year because the living room was a mess after moving here. I think that Snow globes are such a darling cute thing, and I’ve always liked them. I don’t think I […]

Feeling the Christmas Blues?

Feeling the Christmas Blues?

I have had forbidden thoughts… Because lately I have felt like Christmas is not very interesting any more. I felt like I couldn’t get into any kind of Christmas joyful mood. And without kids, what’s the point? It’s super dark outside, and if we get snow it melts straight away and creates iced streets or […]

We’re in the best season for list writing so I put together a little list for you that might be useful when you go shopping next. In my very modest way I’m simply calling it the Ultimate Gift Guide for Artists and Creatives of all kinds. I’ll only recommend things I use myself, and things […]

Illustrating Christmas

Illustrating Christmas

I have been illustrating Christmas in two recent paintings. They are not elaborate in style or detail, or even very thought through, but they’re my try at doing some kind of “design”, illustrating the season of Christmas in my own way. I follow a few illustrators on social media that has been filling my streams […]

Eye Candy | The Red Christmas Chair

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. Jean Cocteau I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, like the one we had in 2012 when these photos were taken… But alas, it’s raining here in Sweden, and it doesn’t feel very Decembery at all yet. So I […]

A Miniature Christmas Tree

A Miniature Christmas Tree

I’m popping in to wish all of you a Merry Christmas today! It’s Christmas Eve and we celebrate Christmas today around here. My tiny Christmas tree is out, a gift from the glass blowing island outside of Venice this autumn. But even though it’s a tiny tree the celebration is not tiny, nor is my […]

Spotted Photo Theme: Winter Trees

Spotted Photo Theme: Winter Trees

One thing that I really like about Christmas is the tree. My favorite kind of fir tree is the snow covered tree, growing in the forest. So far there hasn’t been any snow at all where I live (last night it was raining for two hours!), but I’m still picking the fir tree as my […]

Christmas Food Odyssey

Christmas Food Odyssey

The Advent Candles are burning down and Christmas is almost over. I took some food photos, since I am @sweden this week and I feel responsible to share what I can! I thought you’d want to at least see some of the traditional Swedish food we have at our table every year. A few things […]

Merry Christmas from @Sweden

Merry Christmas from @Sweden

I’m off to celebrate Christmas (which we do on Christmas Eve here in Sweden) with my family (because Christmas is a family affair after all), but just wanted to take the time to once again, after my massive art journaling post yesterday, wish you a great day! AND ALSO, to let you know the big […]
