Magical midsummer

As I mentioned in another post before, we decided to celebrate midsummer with a few friends. It became like a little tradition since we bought the summerhouse. Its been the third year now and it gets better each year. It was so much fun…

Little fairy garden

We went to visit Martins family. They live further up north on this georgeous farm. Whenever we’re there, we like to stroll through the barn where they store all the old things left from previous generations. I love to do that. All those things…

A new bookshelf

The old bookshelf we made was too small. Maybe a reason to stop buying books… JUST KIDDING! Won’t happen. I know that it is oh so convenient to use one of the numerous ebook readers. But you can just simply not compare it to…
