My almost finished ski suit. It just needs a lining and some embroidery.


The amazing late 30s/early 40s faux fur Solanah helped me get.

I spent Christmas with my family in Malung as usual and looked through some photo albums. This is my grandmother.

Relatives and friends of relatives on my grandmother’s side.

My grandmother’s grandparents. This looks like it’s from the 19th century or something but it’s taken around the same time as the other photos in the 30s or 40s.


Ski suits galore!


I always go to the flea market when I’m in Malung and this is what I found on this visit. An Art Deco tray, a bunch of magazines and a catalogue.

Beautiful 1927 magazine.

Great design on the catalogue cover.


Stocking illustrations from the inside. I love the shoes!


My New Year’s Eve hair last night.


The following photos are from Henrik’s Instagram.

We have a new Christmas tablecloth.

Trimming one of our two trees.

Skiing. Unfortunately right before my ski suit was finished.

And here it’s finished, just a couple of days later.

Reluctantly posing with a giant bear.

On the train to Malung.

Showing off my new nail polish.

New Year’s hair again.
