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…

Impressions of Secondhand treasures

Just a few impressions of corners in our house that make me happy. None of those things were expensive. They were either given to us, bought secondhand, built by us or picked in our garden. Most pieces have a history. Now they make me…

Low budget garden decoration for a wild garden

My favorite thing to do is to decorate our garden. And that without investing too much money. I challenge myself with using what we’ve already got. Since we have the summerhouse, we never throw away glassbottles and glasses. Because they are perfect vases and…

Vertical Garden

Two years ago I had this beautiful that I decorated with plants and other things. https://missjekyllslife.blog/2019/06/01/garden-dresser/ It was nice, but our Swedish weather took its toll. Also the wasps liked it a lot and had their nest in their last summer. And then it…

“I was brought up to reuse things.” – Annabelle Selldorf

That awesome little house of ours got pretty much sold as it was. Meaning with all its flaws and little treaures. We own this house for Three years now and step by stp, we make it ours. But while doing that it is important…

A few weeks ago, I made this post about the mini-pond I set up in our little wild garden. Promising an update. So here it is! The pond is thriving! The swimming water plants didnt make it, but the ones under water, the gras…

Let’s get cozy

The bedroom is still in progress, but Tuesday we finally bought proper mattresses. It only took us about a year 😊 Today I fixed one of the walls. I hung one of the mirrors there that we found in the house. After finding a…

Many drops make a bucket, many buckets make a pond…

…and that’s what I made. A mini-pond. Another “things I find in the attic” story. Yes, the supply is endless. The supply of objects, that trigger me to turn them into something pretty. This time a big black plastic tub. I turned it into…

Your mind is a cupboard and you stock the shelves.

We needed more storage in the summerhouse. And (at least in my opinion) more color. In one of our Second-Hand Stores, I found this old IKEA cupboard for 250 kr (ca25€). The weekend after, it was already in our kitchen, ready for a makeover….
