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…

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…

Reviving old sunchairs

Another one of those attic treasures. What appeared to be just a pile of sticks in a dark corner, turned out to be sunchairs. Well, somewhat sunchairs. The wood was in bad shape and they had no fabric on. But I decided to change…

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. ~ Boyd K. Packer

When we bought this little summerhouse, there was this old picnictable standing in the garden. My first impulse was: ” We can throw that one out right away:” But what can I say…it grew on me. And then we kept on using it, as…

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…

Romantic garden

Do you have old jars? Doesn’t matter what size… I had a LOT of them. We’re big in recycling here in Sweden, but right before I was about to chuck them out, I saw this cute idea. Somewhere on the internet on one of…

Mirror,Mirror on the wall…

The ugly cupboard that was hanging in the kitchen of our summerhouse, had to go! “No problem” I thought…I’ll just take that down and paint the wall… Believe me when I tell you, that there was nothing simple about that. The previous owner used…

The elephant foot

The previous owners left a lot of things in the house. One of those was a table in the living room that somehow did remind me of an elephant foot. and it was heavy as an elephant… It totally didn’t fit to how we…

When you just know it

We love to go thrift shopping and on treasure hunt on flea markets. One of those treasures was this stool. When I saw it, there was this spark…that spark that tells me that I should buy it. Sometimes I already know what it’s going…
