Swedish tea towel love

Whenever we got to Sweden or Norway my first port of call is always Åhlens. I cant resist
all their cute kitchen stuff and their fantastic selection of fabrics. I LOVE the mushroom fabric,
I also bought myself an apron,a tea towel and a cute little tray in the same pattern.

Columbia rd (part 2)

Sunday morning mooch on Columbia rd

You cant beat a little wander around the flower market on a Sunday morning. We dragged ourselves out of bed nice and early this morning and wandered around taking in the sights and smells (bacon rolls with HP sauce, yum) returning home with armfuls of lovely flowers.

I have always had a bit of a love affair with Sweden and Scandinavia in general and was thrilled when I found plane tickets to Stockholm for only £2.99, so on Friday we headed over for a weekend of hot dogs,cinnamon buns and shopping for lots of Scandi goodies. I could really see myself living in Stockholm.

Cosy Sunday

As soon as I opened the blinds this morning I knew the type of day I wanted to have.
The rain was pouring and there was a winter chill in the air.
All thoughts turned to getting
snuggled in with lots of tea,a blanket and my
new stack of books.
The wonderful Jeu de Paume Stockholm collection and the very
A year of mornings

Quiet week

Henrik's cold went on for the whole week and I felt on the verge of catching it
but luckily Im cold free so far. We went for a wander around Marylebone this
morning as the hubby had cabin fever, did'nt allow myself to spend so much money
(just a little owl from Cath Kidston and a Marimekko tin from Skandium) as we are
heading to Stockholm next weekend for a Scandi shopping bonanza! woo!
