I never thought I would write this. Our house.
Our love. Or maybe mostly my (and my husband’s) love.
This would be our third year. If. But we have decided to sell.
I know that the kids will be older, and maybe they would appreciate it in the future. But the thing is the location is a bit in the wrong direction for us. That is the two. Reasons.
My family (mother, father, siblings) are living in the north of Sweden. My husband’s family are living in the south. Our house is located somewhere in the middle. Småland. How I love Småland. Literal ‘small land’. The land of the thousands lakes.
This is where we have spent the last years of summers.
It is a bit odd post this. Because the decision is kind of taken. But on the other hand we are eager to that the house gets good new owners. Want to tell a bit more about this amazing place. Tomorrow.
We do not necessarily worry, but we are thinking a lot. About how things will be when the little one comes. As I understand it Brittish Shorthair is a tolerant and “easygoing breed of cat”. And the Devon Rex prefers company. The prospects are good, she is a she + she is a kitten. We will phase them together, step by step. That’s how you suppose to do it, right?
I’m also wondering if the Monstera leaf will survive. It’s been a week now.
Take a look at Mogu Takahashi’s doodle’s and be inspired!

A new line of beautifully hand printed duffel bags, by Laura Spring.
An old Lundby dollhouse. Perfect patina, great wallpapers. Unfurnished still. Someone has carved “here” in the door.
I’m browsing my new (returning) sponsor Napa’s channels and stumble over this, what it looks like, exciting project Napa & Paja.
“Napa & Paja is a jewellery designers’ studio & shop with Napa‘s artists’ bookshop. Paja features a varied selection of hand crafted jewelry by Elli Hukka, Kokoru and Bird of Passage. Napa’s bookshelf features a special selection of artists’ books by Napa, Corraini, Nieves, mmmg etc.”
What really takes my breath away is these ceramic creatures by Jenni Tuominen. Gosh, must be the best since this project. Related in a way.
More great over at Napa, the pencil necklace!
I just love these new (and old, below) Foutas by Anna for House of Rym. I take them everywhere, to the beach, the picnic, use them as a cloth or a scarf. Well the bigger ones we even use as a bedspread. Of course available in the shop.
We have sunshine here today, had it yesterday as well. A n d it looks like the weekend will be sunny as well. Things are looking good + we have something very good to look forward to by the end of this month.

I recon that it is the dollhouse feeling in these photos that speaks to me. Such great shades of brown. Love the wall papers, the Virrvarr table, the lamp and the washing mashine in the corner. Even the curtains looks like something from a 70′s Lundby.
This house, for sale here. Two more dollhouse-like ones here and here.
The Polish kids brand Miszkomaszko has a sweet new children’s collection out.
Gothenburg is a nice town. Actually, I had only been visiting twice before I moved here 1991–92. Once on a school trip in sixth grade, and once on a school trip in high school. Gothenburg is a big small town. With a lot of creativity, and a lot of nice people.
People like the ever clever Lotta at Drömma, Lisa with the beautiful dresses Up The Wooden Hills, my dear friend Carina who makes the cute Bibs, Pia who runs the excellent shop Once upon a time, Klara Bothén with the gorgeous mittens of course and many more.

There will be a vintage- and design market here in Gothenburg today at Drömma’s backyard – Up The Wooden Hills, the new brand Bib and above Anive for the Minors among others. I’m going!
