A few photos from my birthday sunday. Rune was an absolute sweetheart and catered to my every whim. We went for a walk and had lunch in a favorite cafe. A lovely day! Here are some of my presents. From my mum and her husband I got a gift card for Amazon, so I had a great online shopping spree last night! The cushions were a little present from myself, I think we need some more colour in the living room. The beautiful blue and white pitcher from Anne Black was a present from my dad. From Rune's dad and his wife I got these lovely homemade knitted mittens. And from Rune I got a gorgeous purse in eel skin from Becksöndergaard. He has also ordered a print from Etsy, I can't wait for it to arrive!

Have a great week!

A night out

Tonight we went out and celebrated that my sister-in-law, Paula, has finished her radiographer training. 3 1/2 years of hard work is over and she's done so well. Lots of excellent grades! And now she deserves a vacation!

Our house guest



Here's Kitty! Well, that's actually not her name, just my private nickname for her while we are cat-sitting this week. I'm a bit allergic to cats, but Rune loves them and Kitty's owner needed our help, so I was willing to take a few Benadryls while she's here. And she is just so cute! We're going to miss her when she goes home...

On the street where you live.

Well, probably not where you live :-) But some photos of beautiful doors and signs from a street close to where I live.

Here we go again...

Monday is just around the corner, a new year and a new week with lots of opportunities and challenges. To be honest I'm a bit nervous, but I have Rune to hold my hand...
And I almost forgot to brag about the Stylish Blogger Award I received from the lovely Teje at Nero's Post and Patch! Thank you so much Teje! I'll write more about the award later this month.

 Have a great week!

Good stuff!

Hi! Hope you're off to a good start in this brand new year. I had a great new year's eve with Rune. Lots of champagne and delicious sushi. Have you ever had uramaki with salmon and strawberries? It was surprisingly tasty! We put on some Michael Bublé and danced, and at midnight we watched the fireworks from our window.
I thought I'd show you some of my christmas presents with the jar I won in Tika's give away:

  • Beautiful Amethyst earrings
  • Beautiful Othmar oak leaves earrings (from darling Rune)
  • macaron book!
  • The lovely wrapping paper Tika made for the jar...
  • And the beautiful jar itself :-)
