Elsa Beskow Illustrations
Here is a blog tip for you: do not start re-designing your blog right before bedtime! I didn't sleep a wink last night... All the different designs and colors kept swirling through my head and I was happy when the clock said 5:45am this morning. Anyway, I hope you like the new design in the background? It came from Marimekko! I thought it would be nice and spring-like with some extra color thrown in.
I was also looking at using an Elsa Beskow illustration but I think I will leave that for next month or so. I discovered her whilst living in Sweden. In Sigtuna we had a cafe (kaffe and kanelbullar only) called "Tant Brun" which came from one of Elsa Beskow's books. The book "Farbror Blas Nya Bat" (Uncle Blue's New Boat) always reminded me of the lake we lived on since we had a small island just like the one on the cover right at the end of our road. (Broholmsvagen)
I think most of you saw the background I put on right before I fell asleep. I really love all the ceramics on it but it was too dark. Fun to look at it though!
While I was looking around on the net I also came across this poster:
If only we lived a bit closer, than we could go and visit this retro/ vintage expo in Stockholm next month! And it is in the Munich Brewery, how appropriate!
Well, my day is about to start. Daughter M. is sickly at home with a sore throat/ head etc. plus I have to go and see the horsies again today. Hopefully it will be a bit dryer than yesterday, but the forecast isn't looking too good...
PS Didn't those cookies look great yesterday? And they tasted great too! Sorry, they're all gone now. Our neighbor always bakes cookies for all the other neighbors every big holiday and they are always themed which I think is amazing. Yay for Carrie! :-)
