Green, green, green …

With every day it feels more like spring and summer are here for good now – my nose got its first sunburn of the year! 😀

As mentioned before, the absolute spring color for me is green. So that’s the color that can be found all over the apartment… 🙂

One might think that candles in the bathroom are unnecessary
as we don’t have a bathtub and therefore no romantic baths…

… but who says you that folding laundry can’t be romantic either? 😉

Livet är underbart #7

When I woke up this morning it was white outside. The night brought some snow. And as much as I love snow – this morning, I took the blanket and pulled it over my head. It’s time for spring. That means blue sky, golden sun, warmer temperatures, first flowers. NO SNOW.

So, what better there is than a past-photo-blog with some really summery pictures from a picnic in a biiiig park in Vienna. Oooh, right now I can’t even imagine how wonderful it must be to go outside without 500 layers of clothes. Or putting on summer dresses. Or staying outside long evening. Continue reading

But now it’s really time for Spring…

After my last post – so one and a half weeks ago, time passes so fast – I escaped the cold, grey, wintery weather here in Sweden and took a plane to Spain. Yes. I enjoyed a whole week of Spanish Spring and it was amazing.

Warm, beach, sunny, sea. Blooming flowers, green grass. Being outside without five layers of clothes.

Don’t get the wrong idea – it was far from really hot summer weather and no, we did not take a swim in the sea. For that it is definitely too early. But it was amazing to feel the sun on the skin, to sit outside in the restaurants, to see the nature waking up. It was perfect for recharging my batteries and filling up my body with sun.

Spring Preparations

One of my favorite swedish interior-decoration-design brands is Village. I bought a lot of this year’s Christmas decoration there as I left most of mine back home in Austria when moving to Sweden. And every single cookie box, Christmas tree ball or table cloth I bought there turned out to be a really good buy and made me and Christmas time even more special.

Now, when I cleaned up my wallet yesterday I discovered that I have a -20% voucher from Village left, that I got as a Thank You for one of my decoration shopping. Lucky me! And as it happens, the voucher is only valid until end of January. Which basically means that I should really go to the local store this week and make sure I do not waste those precious -20%, right? 😉  Continue reading

O Tannenbaum

Red, green and white are my favorite Christmas colors, they spend so much warmth and cosiness… and  if the snow takes its time again, the white makes up for it 😉

It is still two weeks to go to Christmas, but it’s never too early to get everything ready for it. So, yesterday we went to get our Christmas tree (by public transport – people look like they’ve never seen trees before, when you carry one through almost the whole city and into a bus – big thanks to Joonas for the carrying).
