Had forgotten all about this piece of porcelain tile that I found when combing the beach in Normandy.
The edges have been rounded and polished by the seawater and the waves and the time.

This is the cuff on Ingrid’s blouse that belongs to the festivity dress, a small detail that I like to work with in the Leksand-boxes.
The young woman on the bicycle is Ingrid, a summerday in Sweden, a photo from days long past.
Now she is almost 82, Lotta’s grandmother and my mother in law. She who also has lend me all her valuable pieces of the traditional dress of Leksand as an inspiration for my boxes.

All this sunlight makes me longing for the summer months coming up. Of course this brings me to Sweden, and that’s where this table is standing. Looking forward to setting it with a tasty breakfast and being able to just sit there waiting for the guests to slowly wake up and come shuffling along.
maybe a breakfast like this one.

Just back from Normandie, France.
Peaceful walks on as good as desolate beaches, except for one or two clam diggers now and then.

Today, I finished this little postcardbox.
This tiny little box is available in the Fiasaskshop.
It feels so good with all that sunlight entering the house.
Have a colourful Sunday.

Today it’s Mother’s Day
Alongside Fiasask and the making of boxes and lamps, I’m above all mother.
As the youngest of seven children I knew early that I wanted to become a mother.
At the age of 16, I already started to collect children’s clothes and at 20 my belly started to get pretty roundish.
Over a month Lotta will be 22, now and again she shows up on this blog and for the moment she is here
This young boy on the photo is my son Pelle, now 18. Yesterday he entered the scene as singer in front of a bigband and one of the jazz songs he performed was this one
It’s a nice feeling to follow these two people from close by; not as close as when they were small, but simply as an audience on the first row.

Evening light
Lotta was home for a visit and we were admiring the tulips together.
I don’t know who noticed the shadow first, but we both found it beautiful.
Today's wish this bonbon by ana kras
With thanks to bloesem.

List of:
things that quicken my heart.
.newly painted fingernails.
.cutting my hair (because I don't like it).
.the dandelion-installation by Michel François.
.this old film.
.my love, who writes me messages on the street in front
of my door and then calls me,
telling me to look out the window...

List of:
finds I made on an egyptian fleamarket in Caïro

.a book with bedtime-stories.
.a leaflet to pre-order books to an affordable price.
.a rather odd sexual-education-book, but what a treasure. In the middle of the book I found a nice collection of nude-pictures. Carefully cut out and secretly hidden between the yellow, old pages of this book.

Such a pleasure to play of princess and prince
in my new-build clothcastle!


A glimp from the small archive store that I talked about in my last post. Here are more postcards from that pile, some of those are going to become postcardboxes.
