Still life, sort of...

Not exactly, but looking back at our summer vacation it sure looks like it... We had our family close by, all the kids running around all the time and us grown-ups trying to enjoy that first cup of coffee in peace. The days were so hot and we spent most of the time on the beach. We stayed in our summer house in Sweden for four weeks and It was the best vacation ever!!. Me and hubby also snuck off to Copenhagen for two days and one night (yes, we were counting every hour). My plan was to keep up with the blog and all my other projects but I hardly had time to answer e-mails.... I guess that's a good thing!. Soooo, that means I have a few pics to share...stay tuned.

1.Our meadow. 2.Josef and cousin Ellis. 3.Sandy feet means happy feet. 4.Making breakfast (Lykkes first scrambled eggs!). 5.Horses!! They were just down the road from our summer house for a few weeks. Loved it!. 6. Nanna and Lykke right before bedtime. 7.On top of the world. 8.Levi are pretty excited about our new 'Thonet' chair from Objektum (check it out, they have so many nice things!). Or maybe he just had an ice cream?.

Swedish Crayfish Party

 

We had our crayfish party at the summerhouse a bit early this year. It's just something I don't want to risk missing when I'm in Sweden at this time of year!. We had loads of crayfish and shrimp and my sister made the best traditional Västerbotten pie, all this with cold beer and frosty Swedish snaps. These parties are always a bit crazy with all the kids and this year we also had my sisters twins, who just turned 6 months.

Evening swim

All you need is a towel, something to get wet in and red wine in plastic glasses. I love warm summer evenings and going for a late evening swim is what summer is all about!.

Paris is Always a Good Idea

Yup, still in Paris here on the blog!. Just wanted to show a little selection of pictures from my wekend besides being at Playtime. I actually don't mind traveling alone, I love to wonder around in the city and have coffee breaks whenever I want to, go in and out of shops as I please and just explore different areas. It was both sunny and warm and rainy and gray that weekend but I managed to have a pretty great time anyway!. 1.The city is so pretty! 2.Playtime Paris head office. 3.Favorite kids shop in Paris: Talc. 4.Favorite hotel in the city: Mama Shelter. 5.My roof for one night: Hotel Paradis. 6.Coffee break. 7.Ice cream break with a photographer friend and her sweet kids. 8.Party at Playtime. 9. Lovely Elisabeth from Norwegian brand Jumina having Cotton Candy. 10.The perfect summerhouse gift for a little boy and girl: a boat night light. Love it!

Favorites from Playtime #2


No, I'm not still in Paris... but I'm on vacation so the blog might also be, at least a little bit!. I still have some goodies from Playtime to show you guys though: Caramel Baby and Child  (pic. 1–2) always seem to tick all my boxes. It's wearable and just dressy enough . I loved the vintage styling and their stand was just so cute. NYC based brand, Oeuf, was a real surprise this season. Lot's of new styles, patterns and colors. Ketiketa is a French brand and makes the most delicate clothes, bedlinen and decorative accessories. I adore the exotic prints, delicate colours and the whole natural look and feel.

Playtime Paris Favorites #1

It's so hard to make a selection from all the great brands I saw this weekend. That being said there is always somebody who stands out and catches your eye, here are a few favorites (1 out of 3). Pierrot la Lune (two first pics) has made a lovely spring/summer collection filled with soft summer knits, comfortable dresses for girls and shirts for boys. Adeline Affre (pic. 3–4) is kind of a newcomer, she makes really cute and playful jewellery for kids and also showed a new home collection this time. Blankets, pillows and bags all in colorful patterns, I left wanting more (...like everything). Danish shoe brand Angulus was like a candy store... shiny pastels mixed with classic navy and black leather. The way to go... Norwegian brand Jumina (last two pics) is always like a fairytale, fun and whimsical. Bows, dots and kites is what to expect from summer 2015. We can't wait!.

Freedom...

FIVE days until FOUR weeks of freedom (well, kind of...). I leave for Paris on Friday and the rest of my gang to Sweden. A few days all alone in the city of love... Will make the most of it for sure!.
This weekend has been filled with playdates, long lunches, messy hair and a bit of teething...

In case you haven't noticed, the blog has been a bit quiet this spring. There is always room for one more project or just a tiny little something. Sooo, a friend and myself have something exciting coming up this fall so wait and see... Just bare with me!.

Oh, and I will be at Playtime Paris on Saturday (and maybe Sunday) so if you see me, please come and say Hi!.

Notes on clothes: I'm wearing a new sweatshirt from French brand émoi émoi. Lykke wears tee from Atsuyo et Akiko (seriously the best tees, I don't know how many time this one has been washed!) and leggings from Mini Rodini. Levi wears tee from Tiny Cottons.

Pssst...Mini Rodini AW14


A little bit more fall/winter for you, just in case you miss it... These pictures makes me smile though, Mini Rodini always have so much humor in their designs, I love that!. The AW14 collection "Quel Carrousel!" is inspired by the life and people behind the circus. With a large number of sustainable and pieces made from GOTS and Fairtrade certified cotton, it's well worthy a place in the spotlight this fall.

The collection will be in store July/August in Mini Rodini’s stores, retailers world-wide and in the online shop.
