Swedish Saturday

Hiya!  I'm easing back into blogging with some pictures from around town.  Here's what it looks like in the shop windows in Östersund,  Sweden.  I hope you enjoy the little tour and feel as inspired as I do to with a change of scenery!

Springy Merimekko in Östersund I think The coffee cups are my favorite, but the towels last FOREVER!  Really nice quality of textile.  We have some home that are from the 1970's that still hold their color...

  1. aww that Knäckebrot is great - I'm still looking for one with the right measurements, they always make them a bit big here, well too big for just one pack ...

    Ohh that frog is great (ok I sort of colelct frogs - someone has to) - and those carpets look nice, but I'm not sure where I woudl put a plastic carpt? hmm maybe in the "windcatcher" (that part of the hall, that's seperate form the rest of the hall directly after the main door, where you keep shoes etc...)

    And I really really like Marimekko fabrics, but they are soooooo expensive. I got a dish towel with that birch on it from my Finnish French teacher as a go away present - I'm using it as a picture on the wall, I don't dare to use it to actually try dishes ...

    You have a nice Saturday too!
