Julgåva från oss

On  FGL’s instagram  we have giveaway in form of a christmas gift.
Kristin and I wanted to give something back to you guys. 
So we decided to give a little taste of our  Varberg. 

Spend the night in a boutique room for 2 people at our lovely Varberg Stadshotell Asia Spa.

I say ‘our’ cause it’s where we used to work, and where Kristin and I met for the first time. So it’s a special place for us.A 3 course dinner to enjoy in the night is included, spa sauna + a breakfast buffet.

When in Varberg you need to try out a cold dip in the sea and a sauna at Kallbadhuset, this is also included in your price – as well as a lunch at Verket located just by FGL Store.

To end this beautiful day you get 1500 voucher to spend in our store. 

I mean, how amazing is this? I wish I could  partake.
It’s like the best gift to yourself and someone you love.

Ends 19th of december 23:59 – the winner will be announced  by the 20th of december. 
Press here to participate.

Whilst here I wanna share some more about the latest regarding FGL Store.
If you wanna recieve your order before christmas, order latest on 14th of december.

Our polka dot skirt + duster for a fine price. Comes in the colours maroon and blue. This could be your christmas outfit? 

Merry christmas

This update is a payed collaboration with my own buisness FGL Store.

Today

Right now doors are open to our new neighbours – CLART STUDIO.
Owned by our coolest friends;
Jennie – Kollijox art.
Lisa Burenius – art and more
Frida Eklund – ceramics
All these talented ladies under the same roof.
They have a ‘sneak peak’ today and next weekend, open between 11-15 o’clock. The start of next year they are moving in full time. 

In our FGL we have Marlene – Fruvintage with us today and
Marie- Axkonstochkeramik
Marlene selling her tasty coffee with a purpose – love how some of the profit supports Läkarmissionen. People who help others in need are my favourite people. Thanks for having the biggest heart Marlene. The coffee she sell is the best gift for this christmas. 

Marie – a warm, funny, creative soul to. Always loved her way of creating artwork.
At FGL we sold her blue cups back in the days, and we still get emails regarding these.
Now you can buy them through her, today at FGL or at her shop.

We put together a set of pyjama pants+shirt and robes+pants, almost sold out, few piece left. Useful for all agees – a comfy pyjama set could be something everyone loves.


Bea from Blomsterbaren from next door came in to help us trying our new dress that needs some final adjustment. 
When it’s 100% I think this could be our finest piece in next years collection.

Kristin loves Doris. She is so damn cute I don’t blame her.
Always gets heaps of cuddles like this, she’s a real queen and knows how to look extra cute while we eat. Treats for Doris if she’s lucky.

I’m not in the store today, resting in our sofa.
Will decorate little bit more and might do a quick visit in to the city, I woke up at 2.00 am last night so starting to feel tired now. The rain kept me company till 5.00 am and after that I feel a sleep again, till 7.00 .

NEWS

hi team,

Wanted to update you with the latest.

Bump is now 97.1% baked. Time flies and soon he’s here! Our little mini.

Visited the hospital yesterday and we can’t be more ready now I think.

Work wise I’m not on the schedule in December at FGL Store.
Unless two meetings this week, otherwise I’m working from home. Thank god for technology. My job is basically 95% on a computer.

Kristin and Frida will be at FGL Store till we close for the season.
22nd of December is our last day to keep open.

Since start of the summer I’ve done many shifts so it was a good timing having some time off since my due date is 12th of December.

Kristin & I share FGL 50/50 . Sometimes I can cover more when she’s having a busy period or it’s the reverse. But in the end it’s always simular.
We are so lucky that we can help each other out in that way, makes work so much easier and gives us both much more freedom!

Let me tell you about this coming weekend.
We have Marlene @Fruvintage & Marie @axkonstochkeramik as pop up’s at FGL store this Saturday.

Marie’s cups – Remember when we had them in our shop? They were so popular.

I love Marlenes coffee cause some of the profit support Läkarmissionen. Not only is it great coffee you also support people in need.

Our dear friends Jennie, Lisa & Frida Eklund will be in the store next door as a sneak peak on their coming studio. OPENING IN JANUARY 2019. CLART STUDIO.
FGL will get new neigbours. So exciting.

If you havn’t visited FGL already, this weekend will be a good one to come by.

We had a meeting yesterday planing spring events, gosh I’m excited.
Lots of workshops coming along nicely.
”Utvecklingsdag”, Breakfast lectures & much more.
To inspire and get inspired by and with other people is my favourite right now.

In two days another exciting meeting is booked, which I think could be a fun project the next couple of months. Fingers crossed for that collaboration!

Robe + pant set.
Perfect combo to wear all day. Printed by hand, such fine art work.
Each piece is truly unique, due to it’s all done by hand.

There’s also a Pyjama set available, not many pieces left though I guess they been on many wish lists till christmas.

I get a lot of questions about what I’m wearing as pregnant. To be honest I basically have my everyday clothes.
This peony set is I’m wearing in the picture above I had to go M/L, being 9 month pregant it would of been hard to fit a size small by now.

Wish you a good week, who knows next update might be about a newborn baby.
Fingers crossed.

all my love,

trying again..

Hi,

Gonna be completely honest with you. Last week I started three different post that I was planing to finish, but the energy was not there fully.
It was both high and lows and I was drained.
I’m trying again today and hope my focus is back.
When I woke up this morning it was so beautiful outside, crispy air and -5 degrees.

Mornings like this are my favourite.
I went out to let our girls out. They don’t mind the cold weather at all. Our viking hens. hahah!

We keep our doves in the barn as well and we have two new members born last week; baby doves, the sound from them is so cute.

I’m soon heading into the city to our beloved FGL Store and after that I’m gonna see my midwife.
Not many appointments left now. Exciting. Hospital bag is ready and so are we.

Before I finish this post I need to tell you about upcoming weekend.
Jenny & Jens will join us at FGL. Great artwork.

& after closing time the have a workshop for kids, few tickets left.

”Workshop för barn, med illustratören Jens Brandt Grönberg”

Datum: 1/12 – 2018 Tid. 15.30:00-18:30

I december får du som är mellan sex och tio år chansen att vässa dina rittekniker tillsammans med illustratören och grafiska formgivaren Jens Grönberg Brandt.

Den 1 december håller Jens Brandt Grönberg en workshop för barn som älskar att rita. Jens har varit grafiker och illustratör i över 20 år och jobbat med allt ifrån reklam och konst till läroböcker.

Genom individuell handledning vägleder, stöttar och vässar han varje deltagares kunskap, önskan och inte minst inspiration.

Deltagarna ritar sina favoritmotiv och får hjälp och enkla tips kring saker som hur man till exempel illustrerar ett särskilt ansiktsuttryck, fångar en känsla eller ritar ett knepigt perspektiv.

Inga dyra material eller skärmar krävs, det är back to basics med papper och penna som gäller.

Begränsat antal platser. Allt material ingår och under kvällen serveras smörgås & dricka.

 

Enjoy your Monday
