1. New desk and shelves in Eowyn and Ester’s room. They are very happy about it and want to paint the desk half orange and half purple (their favourite colours). Inspired by “Rum för kidsen”  (http://dosfamily.com/2014/03/yes-our-book-is-now-in-the-stores/) by Isabelle and Jenny I’m thinking why not? It’s their room so the most important thing is that they like it, isn’t it? 

     

  2. They fit. :-)

     

  3. Voilà - the first item sewn at my new sewing desk. A pair of overalls for Ellis. Haven’t tried them on yet, I’m keeping my fingers crossed they’ll fit. 

     

  4. Happy saturday!

     

  5. At our apartment today.

     

  6. As I mentioned before I’m a much more frequent user of Instagram at the moment. I mostly post pics of my family and our daily life, but if you don’t mind that, please visit me there. Here’s Ellis and his friend Jonathan playing in Ellis’ room. 

     

  7. It’s been some time since my last post. I’ve been busy with a lot of things lately, mostly work, family and a little bit of sewing and knitting. So this blog hasn’t really been a priority. But we have a lot of new plans for the apartment, as well as the summer cabin that I do want to share, so I’ll try to get into the habit of blogging again. Here are some pics from this afternoon to start with. Isn’t it great that the light has started to return? It’s no longer pitch dark when I get home from work.

     

  8. Getting ready for New Years Eve. The kids got a mirror ball for Christmas so I think tonight will be really festive! We’re having some friends over for dinner. Time to get the playlist ready. Happy New Year!

     

  9. Hope that everybody’s had a nice Christmas. We sure did, and now we’re fortunate enough to have two more weeks off before we go back to work. Here’s some kids room inspiration that I stumbled upon. I like keeping the books piled up underneath the bed.
