Little Miss Sunshine

Anna and I had movie night yesterday and Little Miss Sunshine was on telly to our great surprise. If you havn't seen it yet do, we laughed so hard to Olive's pageant dance I'd thought I'd die.

All of you who know me, know that I have a weird obsession with cups, mugs and teapots. Found loads of pretty cups today at ModCloth. They have tons of pretty things, both new and vintage, dresses, shoes, everything that can make a girl go bankrupt... Love it! I neeeed the Little Red Riding Hood cup, my cup of tea just won't taste any good 'til I have one...

Lost & Found

Photo by Claire Wilson
My glasses have been missing for the past... oh probably six weeks. I gave up on finding them and started dreaming of new supercool and pretty specs 'til today... when I accidently found them behind a bunch of books in my bookshelf. I'm not at all happy I wish they could just disappear again. It's like that Joni Mitchell song "Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone", only I realized when I got it back, it was really crap...

Beyond Retro Zinkensdamm

Beyond Retro opened their third store in Stockholm today just a block from work (Brännkyrkagatan 82). I'm thrilled but my wallet is suicidal. Met up with Lilly at lunch and spent my last pennies on a red pretty dress. Yeay!

Linda Larssen

I'm proud to introduce to you Linda Larssens new webpage. She's a talented designer, stylist and illustrator who happens to also be my best friend. Yeay! I'm superexcited, the website is probably the prettiest page I've ever seen. Enjoy people!!

Monday with Nana

I spent the afternoon with my Nana today. She's a doll, so funny, tells stories about everyone and anyone she's ever met. I ended up borrowing my late grandfather's old typewriter. It has the prettiest green colour and I can't describe the joy of hitting the keys. That sound is one of my favourite sounds.

Sunday Bliss

I've had a beautiful Sunday and when I got home apperently there was a swallow meeting across the street. They sat there for a couple of minutes and then the hole gang took off.

Gemma Booth

I absolutely love Gemma Booth's photos!

500 Days Of Summer

Oh man, I apologize to myself for not seeing it earlier but I finally saw 500 Days Of Summer last night and I more than loved it. I adored it, can't stop thinking about it, fell in love with it, you name it. I've wanted to see it since it was out in the theatres but somehow like everything in life I postponed it 'til yesterday. It's a great love story, the kind I think (and hope) everyone can relate to. It's not the kind of love story where in the end, despite all the odds, they get together and live happily ever after. Well, they do, just not with eachother. While I write this, in my head I hear my words in the voice of Richard McGonagle, the narrator of the movie, so funny.
Anyway, it's a wonderful movie, and if you havn't seen it, go back in time and see it yesterday, because I can promise you, you'll love it. And if not the movie, you will fall in love with Zooey Deschanel (like I have so many times). She's by far one of today's greatest actors.

A Wonderful Day

I'm doing some editing of old photos today and I just love this photo. It was taken in February of 2010 when a very dear friend of mine came to town with her son. He's just the sweetest little boy and it was a cold Winter day and we spent it at the Children's Library in Kulturhuset in Stockholm.

I ♥ Amsterdam

Oh how I would love to be in Amsterdam right now. Havn't been there in over a year but I think it's time again since Linda Larssen is gonna have an exhibition there in June. There are actually hundreds of places I wanna see this year and if all goes well I'll be going to NY by the end of the Summer or early Fall. Can't wait, it's been a dream of mine since forever. I've been to JFK for five hours but I really don't think that counts...

Sleeping At Last

Thanks to the brilliant Jeremy Larson I came across Illinoise based band Sleeping At Last (and got a free download of their new album!). Since then I've had my iPod plugged in and been moving (with some odd looking dancemooves) around the flat in a blissful mood. The albumcover is perfect and beautifully painted by Geoff Benzing.

Art for Dr. Fart

Had my third appointment this afternoon since removing my wisdom tooth and apparently he's not that pleased with my recovery. No kidding Sherlock! Now he tells me this happens once in every ten cases, something bla bla that the gum doesnt grow back quick enough and covers the bone (is that my jaw he was talking about?!) anyway, I drifted out and stopped listening when he said I have to get in there again in two days for yet another check up.
Mum bought me ABC crackers to cheer me up and this is what I made. I dedicate it to the dentist working on Jakobsbergsgatan 8 in Stockholm. I hate you.

Bleubird Vintage & Yyellowbird Photography

I absolutely love Bleubird Vintage, I can't get enough of their pretty little things. James Kicinski is the stunning stylist and founder of the site and blog

Around the site there are some stunning pictures taken by the fantastic photographer Cari Ann Wayman with a blog to match her beautiful pictures. 

A lot of links in this post but I was so smitten I just had to tell you all.

Star Wars, Trolls, Kermit and a pair of supercute shoes

Mum and dad came over yesterday and she's doing some Spring cleaning at the house and found all our old toys (me and my brothers). She had a whole bag with her with stuff she thought I'd like. How cool are these? They're not mine but my brother said it was fine I'd have 'em up in my flat. 

There was also the super cool Kermit doll that now sits on the edge of my sofa chillin.

And what about these supercool Trolls? I can't believe my Mum kept all of our things it's really a blessing. 

And as a finale, here are my first pair of shoes. Size 17, that's tiny people, looks like I was dragging them around the floor crawling more than walking, soles are like new!

Dustin Hoffman

I'm trying out a drug-free day today and so far I'm not liking it. It's been a week now and I'm feeling a lot better but the fever and cold has now taken over totally. Sun is shining outside and it looks like Spring is back on but I'm sitting here watching
Rain Man on telly.

For those who do not know I'm a huge Dustin Hoffman fan, I must have seen Kramer vs Kramer like a hundred times. And don't get me started on Tootsie or The Graduate, man that soundtrack must be one of the best soundtracks ever made, I dare to say.

Owl City

I don't know if it's all the drugs I've been taking since the removal of my wisdom tooth but I can't stop listening to Owl City. I've never really been a fan of music that even a five year old can name from the radio but I kinda like it anyway. And I especially like these photos I came across of the singer Adam Young.
