very exciting. I won my very first bidding at an auction. here in stockholm we have bukowskis market. you can visit the place and see all the stuff and then place your biddings on internet. i found this nice piece of art of stig lindberg, he mostly designed for gustavsberg. so happy with our new piece of art!

spring where are you?

let the spring begin!


together with madeline from POM-amsterdam  I organized a sale at our place. it was a lovely sale and very busy. when everybody was gone, we sat in the sun (with a big wintercoat!) and enjoyed some rest ;-)

in sweden the thrift stores are great! this time i was lucky to find a whole lot of dmc thread and a delft blue pottery, which matches my small collection of delft blue potteries perfect. and some wooden beads always useful.

with the dmc thread I tried to make some friendship bracelets with this tutorial at honestly wtf. jilles wanted the colors of the dutch flag and orange...happy he still feels so connected to our home country.

moose from sweden

this thursday i will have a sale at my place together with a friend, she sells beautiful shawls from POM amsterdam. very excited about it. so i needed to make some more stock and examples. most of my embroideries come from france, but every now and then i find one in sweden. this moose was a lucky find!

last week i didn't feel well and because of that i didn't have the energy to do much. today for the first time I felt better and more energetic. I finally finished this blue bird cushion for yeliz! hope she likes it.

for kris

a friend organized a great ladies dinner! it was so lovely to have a night with friends. thanks kris. I made her this zipper bag. for the first time I sewed with the leather my father gave me. I combined it with linen and it came out surprisingly well.
