We’re moving out

So it’s happening. Another move.
Let’s just say it’s rather busy days this weekend.
We’re moving out and we’re renovating Linne’as house at the same time.
A lot to remember right now!
Gonna feel so nice once we’re out.

Doves felt rather brave yesterday and visited our neighbours.

We’ve been so lucky with the weather the past week. But on Saturday morning it poured down.

The hallway is the only corner that’s not messy right now.

I try between naps to pack as much as I can. To be honest I’ve been doing this for weeks just because I knew it would take a millions years to get done.

Another amazing thing is that Karro been home for few weeks. She’s been living with us for a while. Nice to hang out she’s been away for a year in Australia.

The other day Mollie Minott was at FGL Store all day due to the event
Ett mjukare Varberg.
Mollie said as soon as she walked into our shop she felt – This is my style of clothing. Was very happy to hear that, such a nice feeling knowing people appriecte your work.
She loved the Varberg set’ so she was wearing that for the gig later in the evening.

Kristin touched everyone with her story. She is so brave and strong! A real role model! I’m speech less.
It was a great evening, and probarly Varbergs most important evening this year!

Markus & Mollie warming up.

A soon to be kitchen.

Karro was impressed by the hatch Jake done in the floor.
A laundry hatch straight down to the washing machine.

Can’t wait for the result when the floors are sanded.

Old radiators all over the house. The plan is to go with different colours in each room. Lists and radiators will match the wall papers or the paint. So many decisions right now!

The girls house.
Did you see my storie today when Mini was in the front seat of our car? She’s the best hen in the whole world.

We’ve been packing stuff all day, it’s a lot to empty one barn, a garage and a house. 6 hens and 4 doves! HA!

Everything is possible thought, you can’t being lazy that’s all.
Next time when I’m updating here I’m living in our summer house.
So excited for this.

Working together

This update is a collaboration with Scorett official.

Kristin & I collaborates with Scorett official this spring, and we’re super happy about it.
Scorett is based here in Varberg and it’s started back in 1997. Nice to work with a local company.


Varberg is a fantastic city when it comes to entrepenours.
Simulurly minded people who are happy to support one another. Team work is the best work.

Hedda Felt Vegan. ( coming later in May )
The slip in’s I’m wearing are vegan friendly. Made of recycled pet bottles.
Y E S – this is so good!
Love when things are re:used.

We spent our day together in the heart of the city, just by the water front. Varberg is a small place indeed and we’ve got some magical spots.
Glashyttan is one.
We stopped by and enjoyed a cup of coffee and to heat up.
Lucky us it was pretty warm inside cause we were frozen into our bones.

Coastal winds can be super fresh and on the day we were working we were with those winds.

Just after we left we found a field of flowers.

You find all our shoes right here.

Another stop was our favourite spot, Damernas.

Did you know a dip in the ocean every day is very good for your health? If you want to improve your life on all fronts, think about taking a dip in the sea. It will be one of the best decisions that you make, the feeling afterwards is great!

It increases your libido your immune system, it’s good for your circulation, it reduces stress + a lot more.

Kristin never say no to a cold dip in the sea.
In Varberg we have a lot of stops a long the promenad. You can easily go for a swim on your lunch break.

I’m very curious to see if any of you handed in shoes in any of Scorett’s stores?
The shoe reuse project is such a great thing! Tell your friends about it so we all can help others in need !

Here is the full video we made the day of the shoot.
Hope you like it!

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!

My friend Kristin & her story.

I would like to share something my friend Kristin wrote last Friday.
Something she’s been through and how that scared her for life.
You can’t see the scars on the outside though.
You could never tell she’s one of many.
Her story is horrible.

She was 16 when she met her first boyfriend and this is where it all started. Read below:

” I met Him one evening at the bar.
I was too young for that environment of course.
I knew who he was – five years older with a ”messy” story.
It was said that the parents couldn’t handle him, nor the teachers and he ended up in a youth home and later on he moved to my city.
I somehow knew how “bad” he was. But that didn’t scare me off.

That night he stood there in front of me with the world’s cutest smile and he saw ME.
‘I wanted to save him’ ‘I wanted to make him whole again’ He had just ended up on the wrong path in life …
He became my first real boyfriend.

It was intense and passionate in the beginning.
I can remember those butterflies in my stomach.
I let go of everything and quickly became completely immersed in him and his life.

Violence came stealthily.
I don’t know exactly when but I know he got the control over med pretty early on.
He knew who I talked to, he decided what I was wearing and he always knew where I was.
It was as if I was sucked into a pararell reality where his truth was the law.

In the beginning I showed resistance but it just got worse and I capitulated completely after a while. I was ashamed and was incredibly confused. I could wake up at night because he kicked me out of bed and accused me of lying and dreaming about other men.
Then, such “trouble” could escalate and pull out for several hours.
I was completely exhausted by all these conflicts and I surrended early on.
I was nothing worth and I was a bad person.

Sorry.
This is taken from Kristin 16 years old.

Next week Kristin Anna & Jonas organize a ” Ett mjukare Varberg ” with focus on ‘ Unga relationer’ Young relationships.
They want to contribute how we all can support our children to navigate in a digital world & feel good.
They arrange lectures and meeting places to create a ”Ett mjukt Varberg”

This evening we want to make room for many conversations and create a wonderful experience at Brukstorget.
It will be live music with short lectures and personal stories on the theme “Young relations”.

In contact with the Youth Service in Varberg and Ungarelationer.se, we see how great the need is for knowledge and a good dialogue.
Let us help get ”a softer Varberg” where our youngsters are safe and know how to receive support if needed.

Together we are stronger. If you hear or see something, interact, help out! ask if everything is alright and if you could do something to help.
A helping hand can change someones life.
It’s better to be that ‘annoying friend who ask too much rather to keep quiet.

Few years ago everyone in my hometown was talking about the woman who got beaten up by her husband. How mean he was when he drank to much. Everyone knew but no one wanted to be interrupt ‘as you do’ if you ask or knock on the door. But! You should! knock on the door! help that someone, just do it.

Join in for the event – click here.
Ask your friends to join in!

Kristin is the bravest & strongest person I know.
She’s chosen to share her story with many both online and in person.
Next week she will share her story live at the event.
It can’t be easy bring up such horrible memories and I know she does it in order to help others knowing she was alone and vulnerable.
