I don’t even remember when or where I bought most of the frames I have in my house, but I know that this pink oval one is a thrifted find. It is made from polystyrene according to the yellowed back-paper… I love this type of frames, but most of them are black. To find a […]
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it. Henry Ford Dear Photo Diary I am not taking as many photos with my big girl camera anymore, because of phone. It feels sad looking back, so sometimes I pull myself together and take some […]

My last post in a series of Snapshots of a Creative Life posts that I call Creative Snapshots, was posted way back in October when there was a Nip in the Air. Because I love this series so much I think it is high time to get back to it! It is kind of like […]
Wednesday I stay at home. With the camera set on the tripod I use the beloved clicker quite a lot to get myself in the photos more! I love the clicker. It becomes a day of errands, walking to town and having time to listen intensely to an audio book while moving around.

Look for happiness under your own roof. Gretchen Rubin My Nine Years of Blogging is a big part of my personal Happiness Project, much inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s blog and her first book The Happiness Project that I’ve mentioned before. I got her sequel, Happier at Home, for Christmas along with a bunch of wish-list-books. […]
Hearts being created and painted around here. I call it Paint and Paper Love, and it’s what I’m into right now. Totally in love with it.
An important part of a cozy home is the greenery, don’t you agree? The indoor greenery makes a room feel like a home and not a naked hotel room. Some plants in your home will create a warmer and more alive environment. With lots of plants you can create an indoor jungle or forest, or […]
My Easter decoration efforts make me happy. I love the colours and figures of Easter. The Easter twigs (of birch tree) is a Swedish tradition that I ♥, especially this year when it was snowing outside. Then we bring spring around anyway, and it bursts into bloom indoors. I love that we celebrate with little […]
I have had this white metal house for years, but not until tonight it occurred to me to open the bottom and stick a candle inside it. I’m so glad I did. I have an endless fascination with the lit candles and the way light moves, reflects and warms us. Especially in a dark Swedish […]
