Funny Swedes

To get a Swede social in winter time you organize a 15- o’clock fika.
We never miss out on a ”kaffe & kaka” .

Marlene Kristin & I had a meeting before we opened. Marie came with her brand new pottery, we all we’re amazed over the plate with blue roses.
Busy talking about this and that so I forgot to take photos really.
Today was only about being social and hang out.
15-o’clock fika is the best.
To describe a fika for a non swede is like what a cold beer in the pub is if you’re english, or perhaps a ginger kombucha if you’re an american.
That’s what a fika is for a swede.

Everyone loves Fruvintage11kaffe. Fine coffee beans with a good cause, you support läkarmissionen if you buy a bag! Such a fine gesture.
Always nice to hang out with lovely Marlene, so gentle and thoughtful.
Finn got a gift from her – his very own kånken bag.

Marie were selling ceramics like crazy and looking after Finn.
You can visit her shop if you wish to buy online.

I do think the rose plate will be the new best seller.
Tiny semla buns from our dear neighbour, konditoributiken. She made so many semlas, both swedish and icelandic! Both were a treat!
First I was unsure if we were going to finish all of them, but we did!

Such a nice Wednesday afternoon.

I love how Kristin always goes all in! Stripes with stripes! is the new black!

Michelle & Bea busy talking secrets 😉 .
Thanks for coming today, loved it!

This week

(this update contains collaboration with Holditbrand)

We’re on the last day of February already, can’t believe it. Time goes by so quickly. The hardest months of the year is done. Puh!
The week has been warm and sunny. We’ve been out walking more than before. So nice. The light outside gives us much energy.

Kristin and I released a new Jumper in FGL. It’s very nice and already very popular.

Finn was the cutest. Lots of smiles in the day. Had to steal Kristin photos cause I forgot my camera at work – how silly!
The sale in our shop is going strong still – ending this Sunday morning 8am. Check it out if you havn’t already.

Got updates from my friend Olof who’s in Japan working away with Holdit. They are very popular over there which is so cool I think. A company based in Varberg who’s popular in Japan.
Holdit’s new collection of cases Tokyo is inspired from just Tokyo.

I’ve been an ambassador for them since may last year. Right now on my instagram stories you can buy the cases I’ve been working with . I thought I can sell them and give money to charity. Helping others in need should we all do a bit more often – very important.

These are two of my favourites – if you would like to buy a case you help me raise money to children in Kongo to get a whole days treatment in the hospital for only 60sek. Thank you läkarmissionen for making a change in the world.

I’m hoping to raise enough money for at least 20 children.
Check my instagram for more pictures and information.

Lucca the wireless charger is my new favourite. I just put my phone on the Qi charger and it’s very quick to charge up, what’s really good as well it’s when the phone is 100% charged it stops giving your phone power which means – you save energy.

Thank you and good bye February – I’m very excited for what’s waiting in March.

VARBERG CAMPAIGN

Hi,

Lighter days makes life much more fun.
Sun light is magic for your soul really. Here on the westcoast of Sweden the sun sets at 5.30pm so it’s longer days for sure.

Just wanted to update the latest news in FGL.
Right now we got a campaign on our popular set Varberg pant + duster.
33% off when buying a complete set. 1100kr instead of 1680kr.

We’re about to order a new bracelet but we need to ask you guys which one you like the most.

The swallow attached to the beak and the tail is Kristins and my favourite.
Which one do you prefer?

Marie my friend helped out in the store on Saturday, she was a great sales lady & model – everyone wanted to try our lounge shirt.
It goes really well with jeans and boots.
Tomorrow she is joining me again during opening hours and she will bring her pottery. She’s the maker of the famous blue cups . If you can’t come by she’s got a shop online.


Please come and say hi tomorrow – store is open from 16-18 o’clock.
Me Finn & Marie will be there.

New in at FGL Store

The other day Kristin and I was working together at FGL store.
Packing orders and had a little shoot of new products.
One is available from today.
This lovely Peony dress below.
You seen the pattern before cause we have a skirt and shirt in the same fabric.

I love this dress cause is a wrap model. Which means it can fits many different bodies and you can keep it open to. Great to wear with jeans and a tee.

Finn was smiling and eating a lot this day. hahah! always hungry my little man. Eat sleep poo-repeat.

Hanging out with Kristin by the mirror were fun.

SEMLA fika
obviously.

The peony dress is already many people favourite, it’s been on our wall in FGL for a while and many has shown some love for this piece.
When you been working on a piece for a while it’s a great feeling when you see it’s popular straight away. This is a limited edition though so don’t wait to long if you keen to buy a piece.

I found the perfect corner to feed Finn.

Working with Finkel surely take some time. But it’s ok. Slow is the new fast.
Tomorrow you can see us at FGL Store all day.
Between 11-15 o’clock. Marie & Jake is joining me as well.

happy friday xx

Lately + news

.

Snow! Winter is finally here. I do prefer when we have some snow and minus degrees. Otherwise it’s mostly grey days.

Our hens haven’t been outside for days, they think it’s too cold. Even Finn and I have stayed inside since the weekend. The poor boy had eczema last week which spread quickly almost all over his body, bless him. Thank god he’s better now.

Received a lovely flower bouquet from my friends over at Holdit. So kind!

My Mary knocked on our door Saturday night with a special delivery from Stockholm. Selma buns from my favourite bakery Vetekatten. I mean, how amazing is she? I felt tired and low on Saturday night because lil’ Finn has been upset for some time due to his dry skin.
To get my favourite cake on a Saturday night cheered me up for sure.

Krickelin in action shooting our new serie of skin care products.

Last Thursday we took the bus into FGL for few hours of work. Happy to say these products above have now launched.
Bare origin skin care. 100% organically pure, cold pressed or wild harvested ingredients. I love the hemp seed oil, it is a healing herbal oil that can help address dry skin with problems like eczema and psoriasis.

Multitasking away. Phone and photo moment right there.

Finn completed his first day at work.

Yesterday Holdit released their new collection of phone cases called Tokyo.
They got the inspiration from their trip to Tokyo last year and these are the result from the journey.

I’ve been working with Holdit since early last year, these cases might be my favourite so far. The black 3-dimensional surface is very nice. Reminds me of buildings in Japan.
