Thrifting in Sweden

Thrifting in Sweden

Today let’s visit a Swedish Thrift Shop together, and take a look at what can be found on the shelves. I find vintage things beautiful, and full of inspiration.

Swedish Easter Witches

Swedish Easter Witches

This is the Easter table I prefer, filled with paint, fabric, glue, feathers and other craft supplies.

Art Doll Emelie with an ironed on face

At Easter I printed some different faces on fabric (my parents has a great printer) to use for my art dolls. But the art dolls turned to be totally different than the previous ones… This is Emelie, she doesn’t really have an iron face, right? I think she looks very happy and sweet. Like candy! […]

A long and crafty life

What is the ingredients in a long and crafty life do you think? Same as in any long and good life, plus the creativity perhaps? :-) Healthy food, exercise, friends, inspiration, love? I dunno. I have to think about this one some more. But it is a good title for a post, right? Related PostsWatercolour […]
