Fika, chocolate cake, cream & cherries 

Midsummer weekend with friends, new and old, lots of food, laughter, drinks and swims. We started the Friday with an exciting (but secret for now!) happening. We then had some bubbles by the sea and walked back home with the picked wildflowers. Dinner, open fire and friends until the small hours. And what an exciting and beautiful weekend it was. So much so, that when Sunday came I was absolutely exhausted! So after a long walk in the…

seven flowers & midsummer in Scotland

Midsummer - oh what a joyful celebration. Last year we picked flowers, swam in the sea, drank way too much champagne and laughed too loud. And what a beautiful day it was. The truth is that I've never been good with holidays like Christmas and midsummer, they've always made me anxious. I think it all boils down to there being so many expectations that it should be this fantastic day. And sometimes, it just isn't. As I've grown…

Heading to the beach

On Monday the sun was shining and the warm air was lingering so we decided to head to the loch for a swim. With my amazing Pure Pam bath towel packed in my bag, I managed to pick some of these lovely wildflowers that had to come with me back home. A lovely start to the week. Now getting ready for tomorrow's Midsummer celebration. As always, do press the little heart if you like this post – it…

Garden makeover and top tips from landscape architect Natalie Coquand

Garden anxiety - is it a real thing? Who knows! Yet it is one that I have had for years now. When we moved into the house the gardens (yes plural gardenS - one at the front and two at the back) were OK, nothing special, fine, but, you know, JUST an outside space to sit in IF the sun was out. My first thought was that OK just buy more plants. So the "dotting" process started. I…

Friday tunes

My friends, it's Friday, I'm drinking coffee and listening to this wonderful playlist. One to have coffee to or an apéritif in the sun this afternoon - I know I'll be having both.   As always, do press the little heart if you like this post – it brings me so much joy to know that you are reading and liking what I’m writing.

A very french morning

  Salut mes amis! Yesterday was a day spent in the garden, sorting the garden, potting, planting, putting down gravel, digging up, digging down. Anything and everything you can do in a garden - we did! After a year of garden anxiety - haha yes garden landscaping is somewhat of an enigma - I called my dear friend Natalie, who coincidentally is an amazing landscape architect, in a panic and for some help. We had a long chat…

Lifegoal: hammock på kolonilotten

Jag är så himla glad över vårt senaste inköp till kolonilotten. En hammock! Det har varit min dröm i många, många år att ha en hammock. Även innan vi hade en kolonilott haha. Igår kväll cyklade jag iväg för att hänga där några timmar själv. Hade med lite vin, köpte middag och satt här och lyssnade på senaste "En varg söker sin podd". Om det var härligt? Jo men ganska. Det var magiskt. Hammocken hittade jag på Blocket,…

Then came the last days of May

I recently got yet another cancellation email, giving me the devastating news that my flights back home to Sweden were yet, again, cancelled. I received it with such sadness, having looked forward to seeing my family and friends so very much. Being able to go back home doesn't just fill me with an immense amount of happiness, it also gives me so much inspiration. So it got me thinking that the past years have been years of learning…

Förvandlingen av våra ytterdörrar

Inlägget är ett samarbete och innehåller reklam för Jotun. Jag har velat måla om våra ytterdörrar sedan vi flyttade in i huset för fyra år sen. Och nu blev det äntligen av - och till min stora glädje i samarbete med Jotun. Valet av kulör föll på två nyanser som går i lila och som plockas upp i de röda detaljerna på vårt hus som ni kan se längre ner i inlägget. Lila var ingen färg jag överhuvudtaget…

Våren på kolonilotten med blommande plommonträd och tulpaner

Hej från kolonilotten! Igår var vi där en sväng och det var 21 grader (!) och otroligt! Jag rensade bort kirskål (nåja försökte i alla fall) från hallonbuskarna och försökte jonglera en liten Selma, 1,5 år, samtidigt. Hon tycker det är väldigt kul just nu att 1. rycka bort blommor som växer ur vår rabatt 2. rycka bort blommor som växer i grannens rabatt 3. springa iväg när man ropar "kom". Haha ja fullt upp var det. Men…
