Crashcourse with Martin

Me & Finn took the train to Gothenburg and met up with
Johanna Jennie & Marlene. We were going to Martins course later in the afternoon so we decieded to meet up earlier in the day.

Palmhuset i GBG. such a beautiful place. A must visit ! Right now lots of flowers were in bloom to.

It was 23 degrees and very hot for the first time.
Jennie travelled all the way from Örnsköldsvik and I think they just got rid of their snow!
Always inspiring meeting up with collegues since we all work ‘alone’ – Behind a screen everyday.
But like always there’s not enough time, it’s to much to talk about.
All of a sudden the clock was almost 4 so we had to leave.

Martin invited us couple weeks ago and I felt straight away I needed to join in. Learning more about social media are always good! I feel lost sometimes when it comes to Instagram, right and wrongs, likes, no likes and so on. Puhu!

3 hours of inspiration. Lots of new inputs and do’s and don’ts. If you work with social media I really think you should book yourself in on a course.

To grow your social media, be active, like & comment always and use your platform everyday.

Thank you so much for our afternoon together!

Off course, there’s always time for a 3selfie!

Finn was so happy through the event. Made me so happy!
He’s so curious and stayed awake almost the whole time.
Not so quiet in the car home tho..

When at home the sky was on fire and I think we might see some sun tomorrow as well.

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.
– 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.


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.


Kustfolk day 2

With over 1500 visitors the first day we were over the moon happy !
Day 2 was here and it was busy from start till finish.

Jennie & Liz was excited.
Liz my cousin is a hair dresser and a NLP coach.
If in need if some coaching or getting your hair done I can highly recomend Liz. She’s the best!

The 3 owners of Clart Studio is Lisa Jennie & Frida, great each one of them but amazing together! Love their studio.

Everything at Clart studio is fun colourful and beautiful. All made by lisa jennie or frida.

I had no time to take any photos really, just before we opened up in the morning. Miss Janna Swim wear is getting her monter ready. How cool is it that she make her swim wear of recycled fishing nets! 

Varberg Verket were outdoors this weekend.
I know they sold out both days – we were lucky with the weather indeed.

These buns above was not bad at all.

Patternplan. Anette is always so kind and lovely.

Finn got lucky I bought him a new body from Frida Clerhage.

When I came home on Sunday night I didn’t move from the sofa.
My heart was full but my body was tired.
Meeting more than 2000 people in two days takes a lot of energy
I started this post in the night but didn’t get down before today. hahah!

Kustfolk 2019 was a success and we’re planning for a new event later this year.

Thank you for joining us peeps, till next time.



What a success! Just got back home after a very buzy and amazing day at KUSTFOLK.
I’m out of words to be honest.

Thanks to everyone who came by today, you are so amazing!
Love all the lovin’!
We had about 1500 visitors and hoping for at least the same tomorrow!
I barely left FGL cause we were so busy but here’s some photos of our day together.

Marie with her pottery – Axkonst och keramik is in our store this weekend.
