..harvest and brake

Remember this blog post? Well, here is the result..

Chamomile was very easy to grow, but it got attacked by bugs. I found a tips online that I should spray milk on it, and it actually worked! Now I have harvested flowers three times already and made yummy tea.

The baby's breath did grow, but no flowers showed up.. I will have to try again next year.

I also have to inform you that I'm currently taking a brake from this blog. Way to much going on right now. But I'm excited to share that I will be back in a few months with a new concept, so stay tuned :)

You can still follow me at my photo blog - and I'm at Instagram - that you can find in the sidebar.

Thanks for reading my blog so far, and I hope you will continue to follow me when I'm back. Until then - have a great fall!

..flower crown

Recently I was enjoying the season by making a flower crown for my cousins adorable little daughter. After some dancing, singing and picking some flowers, the fairy princess and I brought it inside and put it in a shallow bowl. 

Moments to treasure

Monday, June 11, 2012 flower decorations

 I placed two very old cherry trees, decorated with hanging flowers in small glass tubes, 
on both sides of the altar.

A simple DIY - project right there.

We brought the trees indoor for the reception. Great for decorating a large hall.

The bride and the groom were brave enough to plan an outdoor ceremony. In Norway that's not to common because the weather is changing so much, but this time it turned out to be great.

..another June wedding bouquet

Yet again I've had the great honor of making a wedding bouquet. This time with peach and gray-green colors. I went for a whimsical look but still a bit clean. "Less is more" was definitely not the idea behind this bouquet. I wanted the bride to keep discover new things when she looked at it.

1.Rose  2.Wild Chervil  3.Silver Dust 
4.Eucalyptus  5.Cherry tree 6.Carnation flower
7.Astrantia  8.Peony  9.Small pine cones 

Pretty, pretty flowers
My workspace

 A detail for the bride, meaning something special for her.

The next blogpost will be about the other flower decorations I did in this wedding.

Friday, June 8, 2012 begins in the garden

An old beautiful plank just became our new shelf, old boilers are great for herbs and other plants. I LOVE summertime! With these pictures I'm joining NIB's contest in the last minute. This month challenge is "garden / patio". See more contributions here.

Tomorrow it's all about flowers and weddings!

Saturday, May 19, 2012 my garden

We have planted some seeds in my garden and now I'm really excited to see if I'm able to grow these lovely flowers. I hope to give you a good update later this summer.

Monday, May 14, 2012 with toys

So, I'm trying to pass on my suitcase addiction to my little daughter. This suitcase we use for bringing a few toys with us when we're on small trips.

Have a great week!

..something old, something new

Here you see some different uses of pallets. My house is so full of pallets at the moment, and I'm planning on bringing in even more. Anyway, this is our bedroom. Out of these lovely old planks we got a headboard for our bed, a mirror frame and a wall decoration.

Check out this site for more great ideas on combining old and new stuff.

..wall decorations

As you can see from earlier blogpost I'm fond of hanging a lot of different stuff on the wall. Here are some of the wall decorations I've done recently. The purse is a vintage one I just got from my grandma. I absolutely love it!! Btw, the wreath is the dried version of this.

..driftwood sign DIY

Wooden, painted letters and a butterfly made of feathers glued on driftwood. Easy peasy.
Have a great weekend!

Sunday, April 22, 2012's breath

I'm gonna do the flowers for a wedding this summer and now I just started to test out some ideas. I'm totally in love with baby's breath!! But it need to be used in a certain way.. I think it sometimes can look a bit tacky. What do you think about this flower?

I am so happy to have this wonderful pillow and candle holder in my home! Handmade by my very sweet friend Kristina. Check out her Norwegian online store for more great finds!

The last picture is a "behind the scene" picture. My cute daughter is always willing to "help" me with whatever I'm doing :)

Sunday, April 15, 2012 restoration


This photo was taken in the 50's. The girls were best friends and decided to go to a photographer to get their picture taken, wearing their new sweaters. Now, 60 years later they thought this photo was gone for ever, but my mother in law had a copy of it - this is where I became a part of this story :) I also editet a version without the torn edges, but I think it's neat to keep it this way.

..spring surprise


 I've been told that the former owners of our house used to do a great job with the garden, so I've been really looking forward to find the hidden treasures that I assumed where there. I was right! Oh how I love flowers

..colts foot

I always pick the first colts foot I see every year, but it only last for a day when I put it in water. So this year I decided to pick more than one and turn it in to a potted plant. Now it's the forth day I'm enjoying these lovelies

..this week I saved a cherry tree

A farmer was cutting down a garden full of old cherry trees in front of our house, but I think he saw the sorrow in my heart so he let me keep one (at least for a while) What a beautiful gift!
