in between all

Weather has been so good lately I barely believe we’re in Sweden anymore. But after all it’s summer!

Finkel is enjoying him self in the pool. His smile says it all.

This has surely been a busy week so far. A LOT has been accomplished already.
I’ve made 13 brownies, 40 pieces of snickers bars, 3 batches of granola – so we can serve breakfast all day in the van .

snickerbars coming up

I have prepped so I can make chocolate bolls tomorrow morning first thing.
Ordered all the fruit & veg we need for this weekend.

There is so much to do in order to get the van ready. All good fun, we are forever grateful for Jakes dad helping us out every day. Thank you!

Since we renovate our own house to, it’s all a crazy mess. Busy heads and full focus, and non stop work!
Got a bit upset when our painter didn’t show up in 3 days. High stress levels then, but now it seems we are back on track .. fingers crossed! cause we are suppose to move into the house by next week you see.

Everything is truly possible.

I’ll update again tomorrow, lots to share from our house and all the happenings this upcoming weekend.

Summer house lovin’

Mr Finn is loving a bath nowadays. In Bristol we went twice for baby swims and after those times Finn is rather confident being in the water.

It’s very easy to have a bath in the kitchen sink.
He likes that much better than the thing we bought for him to go in the bath.
Our little boy is growing fast. 5.5 months already! stop the time please!

This picture though, he is so pleased being in there. Such a little munchkin.

He was so cuddly after last nights swim, usually he have 200 % energy.

In the photo above you can see my new tattoo. Tiny one, I just had to add this to my collection!

It’s not the best focus on this photo but I liked it anyway.
Baby feet can be the cutest.

We lived in our summer house for 5 weeks already and we really enjoys it out here. We have a fox that comes for a visit every night
( I give him left overs ). Don’t know if that’s good or not, hopefully we save a cat or two cause this fella seems hungry.

Few times a day the fasan comes for a visit as well. A very proud and pretty male, he’s looking for a misses but no luck just yet. He surely let us know he’s around, jieses he’s loud!

Sanddamm is a beautiful place indeed.

far between..

It’s far between the updates nowadays. I feel I don’t have enough time, being a mom, working with my two buisnesses, organizing stuff for the on going renovation & life. Little bit too much going on perhaps. So the blog is not updated as much as I would like too.
In a couple of weeks time it will be less on my todo list for sure.

Just got back from a week in Bristol, England. OMG, we soo needed a getaway. Finn met friends and family for the first time too, I only wish we had a few weeks more.

For every time we go over to Bristol I like it more and more. The city reminds me about Berlin in so many ways .
I just wish my camera had battery more than the first day over there.. hahaha!
So I have to share some photos from my phone.

Jake & I had a night out just the two of us, he surprised me with tickets to Matilda the musical. Lovely night! Well needed.

I treated myself with some new ink, very long time ago I had a tattoo done so that was fun!
Everyday it was lots of time with the family and friends.
Not spoilt with having so much quality time with loved ones.

more of that please!

English country side. Houses are so beautiful.

Our week went by so quick and it’s always sad to say good bye but already next week Jakes dad is coming to Sweden for 14 days.

More updates on my instagram right now so if you don’t follow me there you find me at mirandarebecca.

Getting there

We left Sweden when the lilacs where in full bloom.
And when the tiles in the bathroom where up on the walls.

Kitchen is going up by this week as we speak.

When we get back home we’ll order the bench top. Small steps each day, by midsummer we’re planing to move in. (Upstairs will still be a mess)

For the entrence we’re thinking the wallpaper Nocturne from Boråstapeter and to paint the window & lists dark grey.

Our hens always gets upset when we go away for a while. Especially now as they have a new place to get used to.

The day before we left I did a job for Lindemans non alcoholic wines.
Mary & I had a lovely lunch together sat in the green house.

Like always when we go somewhere, the days before gets rather hectic. So much to do in order to go away. I think both Jake and I are kinda optimistic as well. But! we were packed and ready the night before. Puh!

You see our latest project in the picture above, but more about that next time.
Till then –
Enjoy your days.

from one sister to another

Yesterday I recieved a gift sent by post.
The weekend we had our Kustfolk market I saw this girl wearing a very cool jacket.
Not only the jacket was cool, her whole look was amazing.
So I asked her if she was the one making those jackets, cause I seen this print before and I really like it.
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL GIRL GANG.
– no no, I only do this for fun. I buy vintage jackets and then I add the text myself.
Few days later I received the finest mail, it was AK.
She said that she wanted to give me a jacket!
-FOR REAL ? I felt no way, you can’t give away your jacket !

But she said she had another one and it would be the perfect fit for me.
OMG, so much kindness from a girl I met 5 min. I cannot believe I got given a jacket. But with the very special note on the back,
it says it all really.

Few days later I got my jacket. Wow! It was the perfect fit.
Thank you so much lovely AK.
Support your local girl gang . I will live by it.

Right at this spot Kristin & I have been taking some photos lately.
Last night was not so cold as the first shoot the other day.
But it’s not as warm as it looks let me tell you that.

Our beige wrap dress in linen, already popular on instagram. Can’t wait to release it online.

Bua light house. Rather stunning out here.
It’s a purple field of flowers everywhere you go now.

We did half of what we planned from the start. It started to get cold. It’s so hard to stay focused when you get cold. They say it will get warmer on Friday so we give it another go then.
Lots of new photos coming up and we’re excited to share it all.

Dad said he had fish and some crayfish to give us so we hurried down to the boat before dad was off for another night fishing.

Dad started fishing when he was 14 and soon he is 71.
Talk about dedication. Hat off dad. I never think he’s gonna stop to be honest.

Fun going down to the harbour. Always busy down here. They always wanna chat as well.

Dads cousin Ante . Always up to no good (haha), biggest bloke in Bua. Everyone knows Ante I promise you that.

& there they go..
12 hours of work through the night.
