What’s happines May 2021

Easy, a vintage (TM) display cabinet. We (read I) have searched for five years after the perfect cabinet to place here. Got it. Full credit for helping us out (making it happen at all) to Malmnäs Möbler & Interiör, who found it and delivered it.

I couldn’t help myself

Last week spring arrived and with very high temperatures. Now the weather is back to below zero during the nights. And even if the sun has been shining today and the temperature in the sun is quite OK, the wind chill and the shadows are not warm at all. But still I couldn’t help myself….

There is a time for everything

Two summers ago the Mr and I stood by the ocean while our kids were swimming and playing in it and asked ourselves; “Is it time to move back?” 16 years ago we left the Mr’s home town to move to the other side of the country. Two years later we were looking for a house to turn into a…

Christmas tree

So, it was time again to decorate the annual Christmas tree. The two boys and myself did it. Found us a tree (no, not chopping one in the woods, more buying one at the lot outside our supermarket), got it home and decorated it proudly! This year we went for the white and silver combination….

Christmas in da house

Before and after

Today’s disturbance of circles

You know, we all have them. Things that you have a really hard time living with. The Mr have a hard time when ladels etc points at him at the dinner table. I, I have really hard time when you make the bed with unmatching bed linnen. When the pillowcases don’t match the blankets. Apparently…


THE couch arrived! Finally the whole family can hang (and I mean hang) together in front of the TV. Heck now just three of us can hang with enough space. Me is very happy.

The best thing

The best thing with buying something new is that you need to by more new things. So with the new couch I realized that I need a new sideboard to have behind it for different important things, like candles. And the best thing with me is that I am soooo good at planning and searching. So…

Help wanted

OK, I need to know where I can buy a COMFORTABLE, lay-down-to watch-TV sofa ( I do not need a sofa where granny can get up, she can sit in on the kitchen chair) for a family of 4 (where of two members are growing taller, while the other is growing wider) and an occasionally…
