the house

Our summer house

Let me show you are cabin by the forest and just by the sea.

We moved here couple of weeks ago and we’re gonna stay here till July.

We love it out here. It’s a small place and it feels like we’re on a holiday.
Right now 5 apple trees are in bloom and the plum tree just lost their flowers.

We bought this place 3 years ago now and Jake has truly been a champion who renovated this house on his own. ( I helped with a lot as well ) 
It was hard work. 
But hard work pays off in the end!

The kitchen area.

Lately I’ve been drinking my 11 o’clock coffee exactly here.

Very pleased with our bathroom. 
Going 3/4 with tiles and have wallpaper is something I highly recommend.

Finn’s all toys takes up the whole livingroom. ha! 45 m2 is not very big, but it’s enough.

We got two bedrooms livingroom, kitchen, toilet upstairs.

15m2 downstairs – laundry room and a spare bed.

Jake is renovating the shed now. It will be ready just in time for the summer. 
Gonna be nice with a big bedroom for our visitors.

A mess right now.

Every night the fox comes to visit.

& the fasan, it’s been feed by the neighbours since he was born so this fella is tame.

Thinking if we should rent this house out for the weekends just after the holidays ends, like from mid august and on wards, many of you love Varberg so I thought our house could be perfect stay if anyone wanna do a weekend in Varberg.
Let me know if you are keen.

This was all for now. Wishing you a lovely week.

Kustfolk day 2

With over 1500 visitors the first day we were over the moon happy !
Day 2 was here and it was busy from start till finish.

Jennie & Liz was excited.
Liz my cousin is a hair dresser and a NLP coach.
If in need if some coaching or getting your hair done I can highly recomend Liz. She’s the best!

The 3 owners of Clart Studio is Lisa Jennie & Frida, great each one of them but amazing together! Love their studio.

Everything at Clart studio is fun colourful and beautiful. All made by lisa jennie or frida.

I had no time to take any photos really, just before we opened up in the morning. Miss Janna Swim wear is getting her monter ready. How cool is it that she make her swim wear of recycled fishing nets! 

Varberg Verket were outdoors this weekend.
I know they sold out both days – we were lucky with the weather indeed.

These buns above was not bad at all.

Patternplan. Anette is always so kind and lovely.

Finn got lucky I bought him a new body from Frida Clerhage.

When I came home on Sunday night I didn’t move from the sofa.
My heart was full but my body was tired.
Meeting more than 2000 people in two days takes a lot of energy
I started this post in the night but didn’t get down before today. hahah!

Kustfolk 2019 was a success and we’re planning for a new event later this year.

Thank you for joining us peeps, till next time.

KUSTFOLK 2019

What a success! Just got back home after a very buzy and amazing day at KUSTFOLK.
I’m out of words to be honest.

Thanks to everyone who came by today, you are so amazing!
Love all the lovin’!
We had about 1500 visitors and hoping for at least the same tomorrow!
I barely left FGL cause we were so busy but here’s some photos of our day together.

Marie with her pottery – Axkonst och keramik is in our store this weekend.
& tomorrow my cousin Liz will join in to. To do hair cuts and ‘quick fix’ perhaps you wanna cut a fringe? Liz will fix.


Super nice coffee from Slöinge Kafferosteri.

The yummiest buns from Verket! She sold out so quickly, but she went a made some more! such a super baker.

Lovely Hanna sold out on her books and plants! But promised to stock up till tomorrow.

Emma V Brömssen & Götefors was there with Emmas beautiful pillows and pottery.

Linne’as house

13 months has gone by since my dear gran passed away.
It still feels unreal that she’s not with us anymore.
She was like an extra mum and a best friend for almost 35 years.

Always super positive strong minded and wise. For being almost 100 years old I must say she was pretty modern too.

I’m so happy I visited with my camera one day last march for our 3 o’clock coffee.

Linne’a was always very interested of what was happening in my life and curious to hear the latest.

I wanted to share some pictures from the house since we bought her house from dad and we’ve been renovating for few weeks and it’s pretty full on to be honest.
Now we are moving out from our house in Bua into the cottage in Sanddamm for 2 months as well.

Thank god for easter = many days off work.

All pictures and most of the furnitures we saved. Linne’a was a collector of all sorts, it took weeks to go through and clean out. I had Finn on my arms whilst cleaning as well.
Everything is truly possible. Never thought I was going to clean out a full house and starting a renovation with a toddler that’s for sure.



I’m gonna create a whole wall with just family photos the day we’re done.

All the plates that was up on the walls I saved cause I thought it could be a fun mix to use for the daily usage.

Home sweet home.
Linne’as house were built in 1944 and she lived there all her life.

As long as I remember she’s been saying, -I refuse to end up in a care home, and if I would get sick or something please make sure I’m not going there. Her wish was her demand, her very last sleep was in her home just as she wanted.
With a strong mind you get what you want.
I miss you everyday Linne’as that’s for sure.
The house stays in the family and I’m very grateful and excited cause I basically grow up in this house so it means a lot.

You can follow the renovation on my instagram.
Now I have to clean a bit more.

8 days till moving out…yiikees!
