..I am a photographer. Today I´ve had a photosession right here in my livingroom with
my "barsel-gruppe" (group of mom with babies that are born in the same periode).
We count 8 babies and 8 moms so it´s been a busy day. I will show you some of the photos
on my shop when it´s done (soon). Here´s a test-photo of Alma,
she knew just what to do :)

The norwegian name for this flower is pigs ears, must be because of the leaves. Funny name for a nice plant. I love the bright pink.


Lovely Maaret over at Visual notes has a home tour from our house at her blogg. I love the way she put my pictures together. Thank you! Her blog is really worth a visit!


Theese pictures are from the latest issue of ROM 123, photo by Siri Møller. Scary and fun at the same time!

WE HAVE A LITTLE THIEF.. our family. She steals hearts and blankets.

The other day one of the retro-blankets for my webshop was done and I hanged it over Almas bed. While I was working on some of the dresses I could hear her "talk" and laugh, such a happy baby! When I went over to watch her, she had taken the blanket and was so pleased. My little sweetheart. So one less blanket in my shop. Alma bought it with her smiles.

p.s. Thank you so much for all your nice comments on my upcoming litle webshop, it makes me even work harder.

...Mathea went to my sisters house, they´re gonne have a girls weekend. My sister 33 1/2, Helena 5 and Mathea 5 1/2. I had butterflies in my stomach because I know all the fun she will have, I think she had some too. This morning she asked me who decided that we could not burp at the table, was it Jesus....or was it...hmm...Jesus, mom? I tried not to laugh.

My man is at the stadion watching fotball. Heia Odd. I could hear them roar while I was out walking up and down our driveway, getting Alma to sleep. It´s really windy outside and flowers from the morellotree is blowing in my hair. The smell of spring. Life is good.

I bought theese two wonders at the fleamarket, old schoolchairs. They were actually not for sale but set out for seating. I think they will be perfect behind the counter when my store is done.

Early stage. These are white and makes the most delightful lemonade.


Puzzel for versatile use. Mathea was so proud, that sweet little (big in her eyes) girl.

I HAVE A PLAN.. make a webshop. This is what my livingroom looks like for the moment. I hope the shop is ready before May is over. And I hope you´ll like it, it´s a bit scary.  


The morello-tree (thank you Torill) is just fantastic! I´m so happy that we got this old tree in our garden.
