Already back in August with 25 degrees outside we shot this piece on Christmas, the traditional way, for interior magazine Allt i Hemmet. Styling by me & photo by Helén Pe. Only two more weeks to go now.
I actually like December a lot but when it comes with the cold from hell I´m doing my very best to project that happy face to mine. The fact that I might be mistaken for Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer I guess I will just have to accept.

Dearest readers! This day and all days of the year I am so very grateful to have you as companions and followers. The only difference is that the magic change of 2012 going 2013 reminds me of actually saying something about it. This is where I collect, organize and often just throw out what inspires and captures my eye. If that in just a brief moment inspires you too that is enough to keep me going for another year and so I really hope it does.
A lot has happened since last year. My dream of changing profession has with lots and lots of hard work and many no´s turned into opportunities and positive surprises, I´ve moved into an office with two lovely ladies and feel inspired (almost) every day, I get to work a with people I admire and respect, and the things that are not done is not because there is nothing to show but a result of the lack of time to expose it. Major improvement.
I have two amazing kids and a fantastic husband who, without getting too unique, are the biggest and most important part of my life. And I have a family, friends and scenery that I thank whoever is in charge every day for. But don´t get me wrong – of course my life like everyone else´s also has it´s share of people I love being ill, days that are heave like there was no return, unfairness, frustration and the general feeling of just being too tired. But this is not what this blog is about. Maybe that sometimes turns out too impersonal but for me there is a lot of me in the blog anyhow. Every post says something and I really hope you like and enjoy it as much as I do when creating it.
Thank you all for being a part of what I love and staying with me for all this time. Wishing you the very best of 2013!
I agree with Pella, things are always a bit too crazy in December & all you want to do is to finalize everything and get into holiday mood. But with loads and loads of work to be done before Friday, no gifts even bought far less wrapped and a house that is up side down – all I´m hoping for is a bit more time. I don´t even have enough to go to the office and respond to friends calls and emails = being a bad friend and colleague. But I´m guessing we are all in the same boat so let´s give this week a last kick in the but before checking out for in a very near and attractive future.
Since the snow is here now I thought I might as well welcome it and so a bit ahead of tradition all the light decorations are now up and I can´t wait to get some more things in. The weekend will definitely be dedicated to more of that. Voilá, the first post that is actually according to season!
Putting spring on hold for a while and taking winter out for another spinn. Going up north for a week for the last days of snow. Really looking forward to milking the last of it and then coming back to milder days with homecoming birds, snowdrops & nice shoes. Please take care of Spring for me while I´m gone xx
