There's a positive chill in the air but the evenings are still beautiful here.
The hot air ballons over Stockholm are insane.... I keep thinking they will land on our building... they pass over so low!

Choo shoe I love you!

Monica Zetterlund 1937-2005

In tribute to Monica Zetterlund, Stockholm built a musical wooden bench in the little park on our road. When you sit down Monica sings to you. Even though she sings only in Swedish she is to Stockholm, what Dusty is to England. Such a beautiful jazz singer.

The Indian Runner

A fantastic directorial debut from Sean Penn's and Viggo Mortensen is brilliant. Patricia Arquette looks super cute with short hair and look out for a super young Benicio Del Torro! Brilliant movie... not sure why I've never seen it before!

I wanna go pick kantareller!

Not a bad world is it?

Books to read.

One of my Dad's favourites book. A classic and a first edition.
Another classic from the 70's.
'A love story that takes place inside a packet of Camel cigarettes. Revealing the purpose of the moon, the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism and also deals with the problem of redheads!'
With that synopsis I am hooked!

Sometimes a girl just has to buy her own flowers!

So don't get me wrong he does buy me beautiful flowers but sometimes it feels nice to treat yourself. And on those occasions I like to buy a single stem. How beautiful are these? They're not roses but more delicately wild idea what they are called but they are my new fabourites!

We found these vintage horticultural prints in an antique shop.....ripped out loose pages from some old book.
