fall has taken a grip on us, it`s more like winter really.
temperature is below zero almost constantly.
am thinking a lot about linen lately, i quite like it actually.
i like all natural colours and materials.

kitchen towel from kid interiør, bowl from indiska

this weekend the man and i organized all our papers, it`s great to organize and get things out of the way i think. release space in the head for other, more fun things.

we`re having five year anniversary as a couple actually today! loved the orchid i got:)
it`s time to think about christmas, we are going to spend it in germany this year. for the first time with both kids and my husband!

have a great week while you snuggle up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot chocolate:)

wall tiling

here are some pictures of the wall tiling in the kitchen that i did two weeks ago.

the cold part of fall has begun in norway: the coldest morning last week: -6.4 C. bbrrrr

maybe time for some fall decorating soon?!

have a great week and seize the day!

white chimney`s my birthday today. a weird day. i was kind of renovating away the whole weekend.
the first message was that my husbands grandfather has died. on my birthday! hmmm. me don`t like :(.
may he rest in peace after all his suffering lately.
but my family was sweet and singing, giving me presents and sweet cards.
many people congratulated me on facebook and there were a lot of phonecalls.
one from my little (?) brother that told me, he is going to the united states for six months... i am happy for him:D

on saturday i put up tiles over the kitchen counter - oh my god - it was sooo physicially exhausting. this morning i felt like the oldest woman in the world! my whole body was aching ;) and i am 37 :O now.

then today while the little one was sleeping i gave the chimney a second coat of white so now i can finally show you.

the tiles are not finished, there were a few that didn`t fit and i couldn`t cut them in the dark.
but here the chimney:



have a great week! oktober is a lovely month:)
