Food Hallelujah Amen | Vrångö, Sweden

SVENSKA - Älskade La ska gifta sig! Såklart att hon måste få en möhippa. För att fira i Las anda krävs det följande: umgås med fina vänner, skratta mycket (några tårar är absolut tillåtna), äta en massa god mat och mest av allt: njuta av naturen. Las väninna Tove hittade det perfekta stället som möjliggjorde … Continue reading Food Hallelujah Amen | Vrångö, Sweden


Indestructible | Plant life

The deal with the house has felt so right and so real the whole time to me that making the down-payment (this past Monday) doesn't even seem like that big of a milestone. The house has felt like ours the whole time. Not even the fact that we're still waiting for an appointment with a … Continue reading Indestructible | Plant life

Let it grow

While we are spending more and more time dreaming about our new home, and especially the prospect of being closer to nature, we still do enjoy our balcony. Especially now that the plants are growing more and more, and you can see a change every day. … and I wonder how far they will make … Continue reading Let it grow

Favorite places | Kretsloppsparken Alelyckan

On Tuesday we paid a visit to one of my favorite places here in Gothenburg. Yes, it is a thrift-store - but the most amazing one I've ever been to. They have one huge building where you can find supplies you could probably build several houses with - doors, windows, appliances, the works. Then there … Continue reading Favorite places | Kretsloppsparken Alelyckan

DIY | Knitting Café

Last night I went to a knitting café for the first time. I had walked by the store the week before and had seen their sign that read "Knitting Café | Mondays 5pm - 8pm" (well, ok, it said that in Swedish). I obviously didn't happen to have my yarn and needles with me, plus … Continue reading DIY | Knitting Café

I'll post pix and all things related on the Sternenkind Creations page rather than as a blog post. Feedback - yes please!!! Wish me luck! Related posts: Going with the flow … Continue reading Jewelry | Sternenkind Creations

Junk Food – for real

I am not only a hoarder when it comes to thrift-stores, no, I also hoard books. Library books. I cannot praise Gothenburg's library enough - free membership, branches in every part of town, a huge selection, and, the best of all (yet also my downfall, as will soon become apparent): you can borrow a lot … Continue reading Junk Food – for real

Thrift-store raid

I can never go into a thrift-store without buying a bunch of stuff. So I am equally thrilled as terrified by the fact that here in Sweden thrift-stores (called "loppis", short for "loppmarknad" = flee-market) are all over the place. I kid you not: even when you're driving on the loneliest road through the woods … Continue reading Thrift-store raid
