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.

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.

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!

C h r i s t m a s 2018

Kristin came by for a fika on the 23rd.
I think everyday for the past weeks I get a text a day from her saying,
-How are you feeling today any contractions ?
Thanks love for your support.

I showed her our doves and the hens, she havn’t been in our house in agees.
Think we need to have some office hours here in the next year or simply more fika.

I got a gift, opened it yesterday morning,
I’ll show what it was when we’re back from the hospital.

Best wishes for you and your family this Christmas, we’re expecting our special gift very shortly.

Happy holidays!

Juligt

Welcome to Lyckan Christmas edition. This year I was ready by the 1st of December, just in case baby Fletcher would decide to show up. 
Nothing yet though, but we’re ready. Gonna share some photos from my day – morning till night.

My newest edition of prints. Ångestfjäril by Lisalove. She’s one of a kind.
I love her art.

Just bought a few more decorations for our tree. It’s busier now, you’ll notice on the picture further down.

Love my little ‘Lucia kör’ made by Marie, my dear friend. 

& she has made this ceramic bowl too – eggshell it’s called. Made to order if you would wanting this in your own home.
Check her shop out right here.

Porridge is my everyday breakfast, sometimes lunch, sometimes snack, sometimes all the time! 

& then the light faded away…

It’s not what’s under the Christmas tree that matters
– it’s who’s around it.

Merry christmas
from
me
to 
you.
