Things I've been up to lately

The weeks just fly by, so here's a brief summary of what I've been up to lately! (except for working)

Practicing on making bouquets with old flowers.

Searching for new shoes, but ended up with a new bag instead.

Joining the local film club! Best. Idea. Ever!! ^^

Redecorating the apartment with elements of autumn!

Drooling over Carl Larsson paintings at the art museum.

I visited the hairdresser and bleached my hair a tiny bit! Found a brilliant way to finance
this by charging 100SEK (14USD) every time bf asks me to cut his hair, haha! ;D

Replying to incoming snail mail.

Enjoying the activities downtown, the trees changing colors, the beautiful weather and my new autumn jacket.

What are you up to? :)

Autumn kitchen

My kitchen got a well deserved makeover!
(Can you believe I actually found spring flowers in my shelf!)

Also made a yummy stew with meat, carrots and butternut squash for the occasion! :)

Japanese woodblock prints

I went to the art museum in Gothenburg recently to check out the van Gogh exhibition. Turned out I was a lot more interested in the Japanese woodblock prints and the Carl Larsson paintings I found rather than the actual van Gogh paintings, haha! Unexpected! ^^

The giftshop was great and I picked up a pink box with 25 gorgeous postcards with Japanese woodblock prints! These are so divine they almost makes me cry! I should have bought two, because I can't bare to part with a single one of them!

A rainy day in my life! :)

Cherry blossom rain boots, new rain coat, umbrella with glitter(!) polkadots and jumping in puddles!

Life doesn't get much better than this! ^^

beige theme part 2

Part two of my beige theme!

I only used one curtain since I wanted a better flow of light into the room. I used the second curtain to cover the bed instead. I bought a new carpet that covers more of the terrible floor and I made some bonsai inspired plant arrangements for the window.

As for future alterations I will try to find my big gray Totoro plush in the depths of my basement and I'm considering bringing back the curtain rod made from a stick I found in the forest. And I want a few more plants as well, then I'm about done I think :)
