  9. Hello,
    I would like to tell you that I may pass the Kreative Blogger Award and that I have chosen you and your blog. The award is a recognition for what you do and I hope you want to accept it. If you do, please visit my blog to pick up the award. Hope you will!

  10. So what exactly is your connection with Sweden? Why does it feel like we have had this conversation before? Or am I just having a scattered brain like usual? You seem to visit Sweden more often than me and I happen to be Swedish. And I am jealous. As I love STockholm this time of the year. The best place to be. Go visiti Rosendals Trädgård on Djurgården if you haven't done it before. Beautiful, yummy, cool and so Stockholmish. Or take a ferry to a close by island and have lunch. Or just walk on the backstreets of Södermalm where you actually can find villas in the middle of town. Who is lucky enough to live in these places? I always had this silly dream about me saving some old lady from getting run over by a car and later when she died she would give me her house in one of those hidden places up on Södermalm. A red little house with white corners, lacy curtains and geraniums on the window sill. An apple tree that you only could see the top of sticking up above the high wooden fence around. You step in through the big gate and in an instant you are in paradise, so surreal in the middle of a big, pumping city. Wow. Enjoy yourself. Ia m going there too, soon. Got to get the quilt ready. I have a wedding to go to on the 18th. A quick visit it will be. A quick fix of Stockholm and everything Swedish. I can't wait.
