Yes it´s soon Christmas. One month till 1. December.
I must admit I love that.
I love this time before everything.
I give my self time to create and craft, alone and with the children.
And yes I get stressed!
Only because I don´t find time to do housework and all the things that I really should do.
Lucky lucky me, I have a husband that do not mind doing that part! :)
M is not feeling well today and is upstairs listening to music and playing with Barbie.
A is outside sleeping in her stroller.
Me, I´m thinking about taking the vaccination and what to make for Christmas.
I leave you with a link from last year. I love these Frobel stars.

(brush brush and you will get a kiss)
Alma is brushing her teeth that she does not have.
She don´t mind.
Just happy to do the same things that mom does.
And yes, she got piggy tails.
I cant stop smiling.

At least these ones. I think this is some of the nicest things I have ever seen.
Beauty like this makes me so happy! It´s Margie from the nice blog Resurrection Fern that makes them.
Visit her and take a look at her wonderful photos over at flickr.
I will have a smile on my face the whole week just thinking of these stones :)

I recently bought this wonderful necklace from Tamar over at Nest Pretty Things.
I found her through Decor 8 and I´m so glad I did! Take a look at her breathtaking jewelries. I´m in love with my piece.
You can buy her stuff her and her.

Meet Lu-lu from Paris. I love her style and I hope she´ll stay. Alma can´t get enough of her and has already tasted on her hair :)

...again. This time being an artist. I´m not done. I have to look at it for a while, until I decide what more it needs.
I wonder what Katta thinks.

And my new lampshade. This one took a while to make. It used to be a plain lampshade. White plastic and green fabric.
I dressed it up with gold-leaf, bronze-powder and a new fabric. The time was worth it. I like the way the light reflects.
So warm.

That is, I got tagged by Mette.
Showing 7 pictures from my home with the color teal. I usually end up not doing this, what do you call it, chain activity?
But this time I had to! I think Mette knew, that one of my favorite colors is teal.

And then I have to pas it forward; so here you are ladies (if you want).

Kaspara - orange
Portofritt - brown
Huset ved bekken - white

One wonderful shirt, love the fabric. Three plates.
One old china box. Two "grytekluter".
One vintage apron and one sunhat.
All this for 100,- (10 euros) Lucky me!

I wanted a new layout for my blog for a while now, but I never find the time. Cause it takes TIME! But today I did, find some time. Usually I
play with Alma and I tend to pick her up in the second she asks for it. But not today. She´s been playing alone so happy on the floor. Taking
everything out, and I mean everything. She´s been everywhere!
I wanted a change so I could show you larger pictures. I´m getting there.
My little tornado is now at sleep and I have to hurry and do something useful. Like taking a shower or clean up her mess before the rest of the
family arrives.


This weekends teamwork. The girls has been busy.
They are so sweet with each other.

We call this beautiful flower for china-lantern her in Norway.


Here´s a small idea on what to buy for a birthday present.
I have done this several times and with happy faces.
I make my very own artist-bag from "søstrene grene".
They have the sweetest bags and a lot of fun for a small (and big) artist.
Mathea loves to give these presents away :)

Finally, our new couch. Love it! The picture-wall is not ready jet,
still some work to do. As you can see the chairs are still pink :)
My old dress that my grandma made for me. I love the bright pink.
I´m on my way making one for Alma (with some softer yarn).
Trying to figure out how she made it, and that means I have to
count....and count...and count!

Meet Mr Plystre. A tiny person made by me with love. I even gave him a hat, he told me that he loves it. He is so sweet, different, but sweet. I like him.

But the other day he disappeared. He was gone, until I opened my small cabinet where I keep my matches. There he was, sad and lonely. Not trapped, just lonely.

He told me that he felt like he did not belong here, that he felt different and that he knew where to go. I told him that I would always love him and that he had to do what felt right for him. Poor thing.

So he told me, he was going to Gøteborg. To Camilla Engman. He never met her, but he loves her work and he had a feeling that her characters would understand him. I hope they do. He does not need much. If I know him right he will be happy just getting a place in a drawer.

So of he went the next morning. My Mr. Plystre. The sun was shining on his hat.
