1. Happy saturday!

     

  2. At our apartment today.

     

  3. This weekend has been a perfect mix of fixing stuff at home, and hanging out in the sun (spring has arrived in Gothenburg!). The sewing machines has gotten a permanent place, and three shelves on top holds most of the fabrics. This made room for a lot of other rearrangements in the apartment, for example a new (old) cupboard in the girls’ room, a bigger play table in Ellis room where they can build Duplo and play. 

     

  4. It’s tough to get into the habit of blogging again. Instagram has taken over a bit for many of us I guess. 

    Anyhow, this sunday I’m making plans for a new desk in our living room, where I can have the sewing machines. I don’t like having to put them away every time I’ve sewn something, even though we have a big table that we mostly use for crafts and sitting with our laptops/iPads, the sewing machines tend to take up too much space. So a separate desk for them seems to be a good solution.

     

  5. 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.

     

  6. Some more pics from this weekend, which was a very good one.

     

  7. In an attempt to keep the tiles (which I really don’t like) in our kitchen, I’ve started re-painting the grout in a much darker shade instead. I really think it makes a huge difference. The new grout color is on the left and the original color on the right. I wouldn’t have picked these tiles anyway but now I think I can live with them, almost kind of like them. :)

     

  8. We’re getting ready for the weekend over here. Johan is away on a trip so I’m preparing for a fun and action packed (and probably a little bit exhausting) weekend with the little ones. I bought some tea candles, magazines, diet coke and chocolate today, so I think I’m all set (although I’m not sure that I’ll get around to use all of the above..).

    I wish you all a nice friday!

     

  9. Yay weekend. 

     

  10. For quite some time we’ve been thinking of doing a small kitchen make over, to make it more our own. The kitchen was quite recently renovated when we moved in, so we haven’t done much to it (just replaced the fridge) but now that we’ve lived her for almost 4 years I think it might be time for a change.

    High on my wish list is to change the tiles and then maybe paint the walls in some other color than white (I’m thinking some dusty greenish pastel). Or perhaps change the color of the kitchen cupboard doors and drawers. I would also like to do something about the floors, make them darker. 

    Since most of our projects stay on the drawing board for some time, it’s not likely that any of these plans will happen any time soon. But you never know. :)
