The “new” secretary

We remodeled the guestroom a bit. It’s a tiny room. But now tthere’s (somehow) room for a secretary. I’ve ALWAYS wanted one. So I started searching online for cheap used ones and of course in our local thriftshops. I was a bit restricted by… Continue Reading “The “new” secretary”

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… Continue Reading “Little fairy garden”

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… Continue Reading “Impressions of Secondhand treasures”

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… Continue Reading “Reviving old sunchairs”

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

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… Continue Reading “Many drops make a bucket, many buckets make a pond…”

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… Continue Reading “Romantic garden”

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… Continue Reading “Mirror,Mirror on the wall…”

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… Continue Reading “The elephant foot”
