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. Sometimes they’re not that old, but still, they’re here on the shelves waiting for a new home… So tempting, so very tempting. When I started this […]

A Box of Papers and autumn in Sweden

It’s autumn in Sweden. Well actually, today we are going into Winter Time, setting our clocks back an hour to get more lights in the mornings… But where I am we haven’t had any snow yet, so I’m enjoying the autumn still, as best I can. I do not like how early it gets dark […]

Summer is my favorite season

Summer is my favorite season

I haven’t been blogging much lately, and I’d like to (at least partly) blame the Swedish Summer for that… I love that Sweden has four glorious and specific seasons. I love all these different seasons, because they signify change and movement. But I must say I think that Swedish Summer is my favorite season. And […]

Stockholm from the Waterfront

Stockholm from the Waterfront

Asking ourselves, ‘Where am I right now?’ gives us a chance to step outside the internal dialogue for a moment of peace. Look around you, take a deep breath and notice what you see, hear and feel. Present moment awareness is the point of power and choice. It frees us from our compulsive thoughts. Laura […]

A Stockholm Must See: Spring in Kungsan

A Stockholm Must See: Spring in Kungsan

Is it just me, or have spring been unusually beautiful this year? And long, stretching for weeks with blossoms in every tree top… At least I’ve been walking like in a haze, looking up at the tree tops most of the time. Maybe it was because I started spring of early by making a visit […]
