some unique pieces

The making of the creations with vintage embroideries always takes me a lot of time. not the actual making, but the process of combining, picking the right piece...that's what takes the time. sometimes i put down a combination in my studio and it needs to lay there for a while before I allow myself to make it. it just has to feel right, the combination, the colors. one's cut, i can't change it anymore... but my new mini collection feels good. they are available at my shop now.

saying goodbye again

was so happy we had a reason to visit one of my favorite thriftstores in stockholm. kate is moving back to austratlia, which is the sad part! but eline and i had a good reason to take her for a last visit to one of our thriftstores. found such a nice silver necklace and beautiful thread and some nice books...have to go back soon! but unfortunately without kate!

sometimes I can't keep up with all the birthdays, new borns, marriages. and living abroad makes me feel like i have to put in more effort. i try to make a lot of the gifts myself, but sometimes i just don't manage...but in that case my viking stamps from herzensart do the job.
