Nordic feeling

With this post being my last before I head to Scandinavia for the summer (nice and cool…)
I wish you all a nice summer! I will only be posting a few times during summer until mid August.

Today I will bring you some true scandinavian feeling even though these chairs are made by Andrea Magnani, Giovanni Delvecchio and Elisabetta Amatori of the Italian agency Resign.

Colorful days

Our guests have left…it was such lovely days we've spend together!
When seeing the artwork that I had made I immediately got a delivering order for 2 new artworks. Those I finished with some cutting help today. They are now on there way to Denmark. I will show a picture later.
Today was another rainy day though the past few days have been very hot with a lot of sun.
Some of the highlights from the past few days are: sailing on a river, eating dinner in the nearby park, watching the children play with water and finishing some sewing projects - including a bag I am bringing to a wedding. Reminds my of another artwork I need to finish…
Looking at this blog where the picture is from.
