Inspiration from Syfestivalen in Stockholm

Syfestivalen is Swedish and means “Festival of Sewing”. These days it is actually called Sewing and Craft Festival, but I think I’ll just keep calling it the short and sweet Syfestivalen for ever. It’s arranged twice each year in ńlvsjŲ, just outside Stockholm, in a big convention center there. We went this weekend, and those […]

Eye Candy | Flower Power

I believe in flower power – the power of nature in garden form. There is so much beauty outdoors right now that I find it hard to sit down by the computer to write a blog post or two, even though I as usual have a lot I really want to communicate and share with […]

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 […]

My Favorite Eye Candy | Hey Girl

Basically we live in a culture where how little sleep we get is like a badge of honor that somehow shows our work ethic and dedication. But what it really shows is just a profound failure of self-respect. Because sleep affects every waking moment of our livesóour moods, our receptivity, our pleasantness, and our ability […]

Eye Candy | big puppy love

This is Giza, one of the Broholmer puppies that I visited last summer. She is still a puppy in some ways, but also a big dog. I love big happy dogs, whipping tail, drooling smile and all! Naaah! She doesn’t drool. But her tail is lethal when she is excited. I wish I could’ve kept […]

Eye Candy | Peonies at home

Don’t bend; donít water it down; donít try to make it logical; donít edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
