Today it's been one of those Saturdays as Saturdays should be -

- feather-light, no have-tos,

a delicate waft of fresh laundry & coffee, candles & roses,

time to pop out with the kids, photograph and breathe.

Our anniversary weekend,

which sparks a myriad of memories, reflections

and a sense of gratitude.

Tänään on ollut juuri sellainen lauantai kuin lauantain kuuluu olla

- höyhenen keveä, vailla pakkoja,

häivähdys vastapestyjen lakanoiden, kahvin, 

kynttilöiden ja ruusun tuoksua.

Lasten kanssa ulos sadekuurojen välissä,

aikaa kuvata ja hengittää.


josta kumpuaa muistoja

ja kiitollinen mieli.

Today's ♡

"and all at once,

summer collapsed into fall."

Mentally I always try to hold on to the notion

of August still denoting summer even in these Northern climes,

but admit to that distinct feeling of suddenly 

one's morning coffee tasting extra good

with a crisper tinge in the air... 

Autumns do feel like a blank new page,

almost like New Year's.

This time for me that blank canvas feels more like a mental one

rather than a practical outworking, 

apart from one thing perhaps...

increasingly getting to concentrate on studio work,

- a sweet prospect

with the thought of a long, dark season ahead.

Will the autumn be bringing in something new for you?

Craig McDean

Some favourites from the striking portfolio

 of photographer Craig McDean.



Photos from the lovely home of

Josephine Ekström, owner of Lily & Oscar, and her family,

in Höganäs, Sweden,

as featured in Bolig Magsinet.

P.S. I'll get back to previous comments in a jiffy!

I think this shoot with Ingmari Lamy 

is one of the most wonderful I've seen in a long time... 

(breathtaking Ingmari Lamy herself,

the photography&styling,

the location in its crumbling grandeur, 

 -  the whole package just spot on).

Shared with kind permission 

of photographer Sandra Myhrberg.

You can read the accompanying article here

and follow Ingmari's blog here.

Lots of love,

I threw some almond milk and spices in the blender

for a smooth start to the weekend. 

( Perhaps no Agave syrup next time,

succulent but a little sweet... )

The summer seems to be endless this year

and I sure ain't complaining. 

Have a lovely August weekend,

wherever you may be!



Heitin perjantai-illan kunniaksi tehosekoittimeen 

mantelimaitoa, banaanin, 

lorauksen Agave-siirappia,

ripauksen kardemummaa, kanelia ja vaniljaa 

(ensi kerralla jää tosin siirappi pois,

himpun turhan makeaksi veti).

Kesä se vain jatkuu ja jatkuu, ihanaa... 

Leppoisaa elokuun viikonloppua itse kullekin!

We saw some lovely places

- yet none as lovely as those evenings by the sea.
