  • Ruffles for Spring

    Patterned ruffle dress with ties

    There is no getting away from ruffles this spring. Most of the shops have already got their own takes on these flattering, flowy shapes. Personally I am craving a light blue top to toughen up with some cut-offs, and there are even faint plans in the works to make my own. Until then I am more […]

  • Carved 1920’s Bakelite

    vintage pendant carved bakelite 1920s

    A throwback to February for a simple outfit where this true vintage treasure is the star! This turn of the century pendant is made from some of the first plastic, bakelite. It’s highly collectable, funny considering how most people feel about plastic these days! This is truly one of my most precious pieces of jewellery. […]

  • Magical Violet Syrup Recipe

    violet syrup

    It’s the time of the year when violets start popping up. Normally disregarded as a common weed, these vibrant purple flowers are pretty incredible. Their scent is unmistakable and while it may divide people’s tastes, I’m a huge fan. Last April I discovered the abundance of violets in our garden, and set out picking in order to […]

  • The Fashion of Gustav Klimt

    Gustav Klimt is an artist who’s work has always been very inspirational to me. The patterns, textures and graphic shapes in the paintings perfectly accompany his soft portraits. You can imagine my delight in discovering that the clothing that played such an part of his paintings actually existed! I’ll give you a quick re cap of the story […]

  • Homemade Pretzels

    table of pretzels

    Every time I go to Germany, I seek out one thing; Pretzels! I love their chewy texture and salted exterior, and they are so pleasing to the eye. I thought I would try making my own having felt cravings ever since my last visit in Summer and not going back to Berlin until Easter. My […]

  • Tea Tin DIY Ideas

    Sarah Johnsons DIY succulent planter tea tins

    I have spent the past year working in a tea shop, a shop that is very peculiar, old-fashioned and full of great inspiration. There are things to look at in every nook and cranny at The Tea Centre of Stockholm, but one thing that captures most visitors’ attention is the vast collection of different tins […]

  • Sun Halo

    On my way to work the other day, the sun was shining a bit unusually. I stopped and took a few snaps, and walking along the bridge (away from the approaching bus I was going to take) I discovered there was actually a halo around the sun. I carry my DSLR around sometimes, so I […]
