Many things are going on here at the moment. Changes, pretty big ones as well. Looking forward to it all, it’s positive changes. But first some news coming in. As you might remember my colleague Anna and I went to Tunisia, October 2011 to meet the lovely couple Rym and Zied. Our trip ended up with Anna and me creating the brand House of Rym together with Rym (yes her name is Rym) and Zied. It sure has been a journey. And that journey is still in progress. Actually our new collection for House or Rym is about to see daylight any day now. Even though there will be only parts of the collection available in the shops at first you will be able to see most of it here in advance. So if you are curious about what’s coming be sure to peep in here and there. Tomorrow for example, or the day after that (depending how much time and energy the new week has to offer). I might show some at Instagram as well.
Two of our new porcelain parts (and wooden salt & peppar mushrooms) premiered at the kitchen table today with Quorn vegetable stew and cheese sandwiches.
Nice plant theme in Potipoti spring/summer collection 2013. I especially like the potted cacti scarf.
Not only have I become attached to plants and long walks in the park these day but also to cloths. Digging them out from the closets and make the trouble of finding them in forgotten boxes in the attic (don’t iron them though). Is it just me? Apologies for the rather wild middle-aged look in my eyes.
News from the The Knife finally, A Tooth For An Eye.
Step back. Observe?
I do it, not always through a camera. But sometimes through several. Look at the difference, here and there.
There is so many shoes out there.
The kids have winter holidays. I run around. Met Isabelle from Dos family the other day.
Take a look at the Swedish design duo How are You‘s Mini bar “It’s raw, it’s neat, it’s made for keeping liquor in”. Remember their nice pillows?
New issue out, Lille Nord.
I’m meeting this and this lady today, you?
Box Box Box, vintage packaging
Illustrator Jonna Fransson
A friend, a fika, a book. Look how romantic life can look like with a bit of shallow depth of field.
Also quite romantic, this little house at Hemnet.
Artist Lisa Grue has made a bunch of new, nice prints.
Sunday. Is nice. Sweden got light again.
So, what has happened since last time? The cat got sick (under control now), finally I’ve started running (again). A n d, as the curious one I am I’ve joined Vine the micro-video sharing service that Twitter launched last week. Can’t give you a link to mine though since I don’t know how to find it on the web. Do you?
Keep coming back to Grandma Moses paintings.
So what would I like to say with these photos? Well, only that this was my yesterday. A slow day. The cat and I slept long in the morning, then rest some in the sofa. Did a bit of laundry and started reading a new book.
I was interviewed in in the Danish online magazine Keiki (page 79-81). Now and then-questions. I never remember any names of favorites films when someone is asking. Today I remembered one though. This one, the only VHS movie I couldn’t get rid off even if it was several years ago we owned a VHS player, En kärlekshistoria, by Roy Andersson.
Alex Palenski seems to have made new mobiles.
The teenage daughter, soon 15 (swoosh), wants to change bedroom. She would get checkered floor, this and above wallpaper if we agreed. We would get wooden floor and white. And big muscles.
Anne Dokter, Storyteller.
This year in the shape of my parents in law’s house. See a glimpse of the house here (gosh Hiro was thin then). Indoor glimpse 2 here.
Last year we made gingerbread copy of our country house. One year we did a Moomin gingerbread house. Did you made one yet?
Happy to see my Gran pillow case included in the Holiday Gift Guide: For the Scandinavians at Remodelista.
