Recent Projects

I am sitting in our living room amongst piles of clothes, bedding, boxes and furniture. We have emptied the contents of our bedroom and study in here whilst those rooms get brand new floor boards to match the rest of our apartment. Needless to say I'm pretty excited about this makeover! I've been on an interior roll lately; getting little crafty things done and buying some new furniture. It feels so good to finally be able to spend some time decorating our new(ish) home!

Since there hasn't been much happening on the cooking front lately, I thought I'd share some photos of these other projects that have been keeping me busy. Once all the renovations are done I will share more photos of our home, I promise!

Here's what I've been up to recently...

I've been enjoying the winter sun...
...and numerous cups of tea!
I've finished quite a few little crafty projects, including these coasters, oven mittens and tiny bags filled with lavender!
I also made these clay barnacles inspired by Design Sponge!
All things Scandinavian. The wooden bead decorations are another recent project of mine.
We ordered this wall sticker from Finland - birch branches!
A new floor lamp to brighten the dark winter nights
These willow branches look so dramatic - love them!
And I've earned some wife points with these Finnish mocha cakes!

Hope you will have a great weekend! I will be back soon...
