Flying Tiger Traveler’s Notebooks

Flying Tiger Traveler’s Notebooks

Every time I’m in Stockholm I visit a shop called Flying Tiger Copenhagen. It’s a chain store of cheap but cute Danish design originating from Copenhagen. I first discovered a store in Gothenburg, but for a few years now we’ve had one in central Stockholm and a few others popping up around here in suburb […]

Inspired at the Haberdashery

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didnít really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. Thatís because they were able to connect experiences theyíve had and synthesize new things. Steve Jobs Have you […]

Field Notes from IKEA

Field Notes from IKEA

IKEA is one of my favorite stores, not only because it’s 1) Swedish and 2) cheap but also because I find it inspiring (although tiring) to walk through the big storehouse close to Stockholm. And now they’ve got the most beautiful line of paper goods, including notebooks, washi tape, wrapping paper, boxes and more. Related […]

Week in the Life: Fabric store browsing

Fabric store browsing – with camera in hand for the photo documentation project Week in the Life. Thin airy cotton fabric. Polka dots that feels like spring.

Sommerfuglen yarn shop

Sommerfuglen yarn shop

Sommerfuglen is Danish for butterfly. I found this yarn shop in Copenhagen when I was visiting a few weeks ago. It’s a beautiful little shop with walls covered in inspiration and materials. Bulging with yarn. Exploding with colours. And the button section, oh my oh my, just have a look inside with me… Related PostsMy […]

An Artist Date in town

An Artist Date in town

One day last week was spent with a friend in town. We had lunch, exchanged gifts, talked and laughed – and then went out and looked at pretty spring things that are in the stores now. I had my camera up all the time and snapped a lot of pictures. A self portrait in every […]

Greetings from Knit Cafe in Stockholm

Yesterday my friend Inger finally lured me out of my secret cave into the big world outside. It was just what I needed. I went to a knit cafe in Stockholm for the first time! It is open every Sunday and was located in a big yarn store called Knit Lab, close to Södra station, […]

100 % wool – a yarn shop visit

These pictures is from a newly opened yarn shop, 100 % ull in Torekällberget owned by a danish lady who knits and felts beautiful things with yarn. I’m so glad I brought my camera because when I see yarn shops in other blogs I just smile, it all looks so… great. The whole shop smells […]

Treasure Hunting at the Flea Market

Treasure Hunting at the Flea Market

Thrifting, bargaining and looking for second hand stuff is like being on a treasure hunt. It’s so exciting because you never know what you’ll find, where you’ll find it and what you’ll pay for it… Going into a regular shop you will know if they carry clothes or food, and you’ll have an idea of […]
