Archive for January, 2011
i’m not (at all) too good with routines but i still have some romantic idea about organizing. i think i got it from a story about some architect commissioned to make a sketch and his deadline was more than a year away. so every day he would sit at his desk at 9 pm, put on this one song (alway the same) and then work for exactly an hour. the end result was of course great, as always in stories.
i don’t know why i find it so inspiring but i think it has to do with some kind of fascination of the perservation and commitment that it takes to be so structured. and i always want what i haven’t got, don’t we all?

my most inspiring time of the day is mornings, and preferably to early when the coffee is necessary and it’s so quiet and still one would think i live alone in some forest. i could look at anything and enjoy it so whatever site happens to appear on my browser is the best in the world. except newssites, they always get me down.

this house looks like it contains so many stories.. i could look at it for hours. well, half an hour at least.
i always post photos from other homes but never from my own. and so i made one successful cake which led from one thing to another: iphone photo shoot.
first photo: shelves with some inspiring things like my favorite illustration (by my mother), an embroidered vanity case, bookcovers i like and some sweet boxes.
the second photo: the kitchen shelf with some lemon cakes i made today and some pots.
third photo: the “grandma cake” from sju sorters kakor.
