Trying out to blog from the phone...

... By posting some pictures I took when E and I took a walk in the afternoon sunshine this week. Then we had a lovely dinner with her and B on their balcony. Friends are a good thing.

pantone the wall

I bought this set of 100 Pantone post-cards when I was with T & E in Bergen earlier this summer. I figured I'd probably find some good use for it. To begin with, some of them will adorn a wall in the first floor hallway.

This space will be the sewing-room, blog-area and DIY-corner when all is done.

Cricket the curious cat follows me from room to room and always wants to be part of every picture.Well, I can oblige.

I'm not a row-boat

yes, that's what I heard the first time I listened to this one. Nice tune and a sparkly video, what's not to like!

and then some more kitchen stuff

Today I took a short trip to the city centre after work. I tried to find some wall paper to use in an up-coming kitchen project, but I wasn't lucky. I think I have to order online... well. On my way home, before doing the grocery shopping for the weekend ( cup-cakes, chocolate, bacon...) I made a short stop at Ting. There I stood and drooled for a while over some of the stuff from Danish Ferm-living. I want things. Many things. And maybe I'll just order my wallpaper from them? I'm thinking either this one or this one, though it's a bit darker than I had planned... But the pattern's so lovely!

kitchen colour inspiration

I'm still not entirely sure about what colour scheme to go for in the kitchen, but today this picture inspired me. Bulbino from Kähler Design

Blue, green and yellow... Fresh and happy!

curtain call

I'm trying to figure out which of my left-over fabrics to use as a kitchen curtain. Any preferences? My favourites so far are the one to the far left and the one to the far right.

Or maybe the black, furry one?

I've had better days

It's raining. And I just came home from the vet with a highly un-perky cat. Said cat is now hiding in his little house and I'm worried. Oh, and this morning I noticed that someone had stolen A's bike from our garden. Crap,crap crapeti-crap.

I'm having a post-vacation new-start by reliving the 90s. Buffy-marathon, nail-polish extravaganza and fruit-sallad in the couch. It's been a while since I saw season 1, and I had forgotten about all of the lovely grunge music at the Bronze! The not so good special effects I had not forgotten, but the witty script still makes me happy as a pig in mud!

last day of the vacation

and I don't even feel very stressed about it.This last week has been dedicated to cuddling with A and the cats in the couch while watching the Olympics, but we have also managed to do most of the stuff on my "To do in the House"-list. Today we finished putting up the curtains we're going to have instead of doors to the wardrobes, and we finally managed to get the door to the kitchen done as well. And then I'm going to plan this weeks outfits and prepare my first week back at work. Since A is starting his weekly commute to Holland this week I'm going to introduce some new routines so it will be easier to fill the days with meaningful things even though I'll be by my self a bit. Well-planned dinners (A usually cooks,) getting up earlier and exercise more are some of the things I hope to make a part of my every day life. We'll see...

Only 2 days left...

... until this years summer-vacation is over. This has been a sort of crazy day with a new trip to the vet, but one that did not give any new answers. The rest of the day however has been really great with some serious gardening  in the sun and now me and A are hanging out in the couch watching the Olympics with some take-away burgers. We have two cats chasing each other around the backrest of the couch so tonight I think I can forget that things are not looking so good for little Charlie.
