Long time no see …

My blog-self-discipline has been suffering for quite a while now – but I’ll make it up with some amazing autumn pictures from my trip to Austria 🙂

I went to Austria for a whole week to see friends and family and to pack some things that I forgot to take with me when I moved to Sweden 😉 First stop was Vienna, it was amazing to meet my friends there and visit some my favourite places all over town!

Big city life!

I am currently in Stockholm, weekend holiday in the big city. I’ve been here quite often and the city is simply amazing – the water, the architecture, the shops, the people, the feeling. It is a city where I discover something new everytime I’m here.

However, there are also places that are on my to-do-list everytime I come here. One of them is Fotografiska, Stockholm’s Museum for Photography, where I am right now. I’ve seen a lot of memorable exhibitions here, especially Annie Leibovitz and also Lennart Nilsson with his touching pictures about the development of a child.

Fabric Monday!

After the first sewing mission in the new apartment, my sewing machine has been on a little holiday for the last couple of days, or actually weeks. So I decided it’s time to get her (yes, my sewing machine is female, probably because in german it is the female word “die Nähmaschine” and it is just too hard to get rid of a word’s gender) out again and start a new project.

Hej allihopa!

I am Stephanie, an Austrian girl living Sweden, and I like pretty things – amazing sunsets, comfy furniture, fancy cupcakes, gorgeous decoration. Those are what make my life special and beautiful, inspire me for creating my own pretty things and make me happy. I do them myself or I go out to find them, mostly armed with my camera taking pictures of everything. And that’s the reason behind the title of my blog:

Sachensucherin. Turnupstuffer. Sakletare.

It comes from one of my most favourite books – Pippi Langstrumpf (or Longstocking or Långstrump) by Astrid Lindgren. In one of her adventures, Pippi and her friends Tommi and Annika play a game where they are so called Sachensucher (or turnupstuffers or sakletare). They wander around with open eyes, looking for things. Things that are pretty. Things they can have fun with. Things that are just somewhere out there. This way, Annika finds a beautiful pearl necklace. Tommi finds an instrument. And Pippi finds the mayor of the city, sleeping in the grass, and starts to feed him with hawkbit …

So, with this blog I want to share the pretty things I find or do or make and hopefully inspire people to bring some prettyness in their life, too. I’m looking forward to your visits, comments and input – see you here! 🙂

PS: Thanks to Hanna for inspiring me with her own blog about her passion and for showing me that pretty things are my passion!

PPS: Thanks to my mum for brainstorming about the blog’s name and for making Pippi to such a big part of my life 🙂

PPPS: Thanks to Joonas for pushing me to finally get the blog going, helping me with setting it up and for the first sponsorship 😉
