glorious spring

Suddently we have sun, no wind and temperatures around 10 degrees (50 Fahrenheit)...
the kids love it!

a little spring in the dining nook

This room is  so hard to take good pictures, because of the large window...

But I finally make a transition to spring.

Blue and white pillows (two made from dish towels) and some white tulips...

Blue and white dishes (not old or expensive ones, but fond memories attached - my husband had them in his university years and we used them the first years of our marriage)

Happy spring!

Here I am - this is me!

Det må jo bli soverommet ;)

Nymalt i grått. Litt naturfarger og en dose hvit. Litt selvlagt (sengegavl og tavla).
Litt vintage og litt nytt. 

Det er meg.

a creative mess

Our house gets messy quicker than I'm able to clean up. (Yes, the kids do chores, but still...)
I laughed when I saw that my friend Rie filed the photo from my living room at Pinterest with the comment:

"... so soothing".

I grabbed my camara and took a picture as it was
 right there and than... so soothing!!!

Sometimes I try to keep up with everything. I try to be this really neat person. I think my family likes me not so much on these days... and I realized another thing:  my creativity dries up.

Some days being creative is more important to me than a clean house.

So, if you come over and the house is a mess, just know I had other priorities that day...
