This week’s picks could be both for babies or ladies really. I completely adore this modern baby quilt tutorial by See Kate Sew, and actually would love to turn this into a bigger quilt for my own bedroom! And how sweet is this print by La Famille Mouchette? I would happily have this above my desk for inspiration, or hang it next to my little girl’s crib.

A kiss on the forehead. So simple. So sweet.

Are you guys into PDA? I don’t usually care much for it, but I have to admit that I love to see someone getting a kiss on their forehead. Husband & wife, father & daughter or grand-mother & child…I find it so beautiful. There’s something really pure about it. And when hubby kisses my forehead, my oh my, I can’t help but smile like that girl in the picture. Make me feel like a little girl when her crush tells her he likes her too. Butterflies flying left and right in that little belly of mine. No words needed.

And with that, an assortment of girly things that also make my heart flutter :)

1. Gorgeous gold clutch by gift Shop Brooklyn. |2. I’ve featured this print before, but I love it so much…“non je ne regrette rien” print by Sarah & Bendrix. |3. Long feather necklace by Junghwa. |4. I need those pencils. At Anthropologie. (PS: Did you enter our Anthropologie giveaway already?!) |5. Glamourous maxi dress by Three Little Ducks.|6. Gotta love Bario Neal‘s collection of rings.

Happy Tuesday, friends! Yes, happy indeed, because looking at these pictures of this pretty house in Sweden brings a smile to my face :) I want to paint my entry door yellow too – I think it says so much about a person who can dare to do that. Instant happiness. Oh and that attic bedroom? I’ve always been a big fan of bedrooms right under the roof. When we lived in Denmark we had one, and I love just laying on the bed on rainy days with a good book, listening to the sound of the rain falling on the roof.

And with that, this gorgeousness of a smoothie by G0lubka! I don’t make smoothies as often as I should, and it’s a real shame, especially when I stumble on recipes like this one!

Who said giving cash to someone had to be boring?! Here’s a fun little project for you guys today: a fun little umbrella that you painted yourself, and when your friend opens it – POP, some cash falls down from it. An umbrella that will cover any type of rainy day, if you will :) 

And let me tell you, it’s super easy to do! All you really need is a white umbrella (the paint will show better, but you could try on another color), some fabric paint, some twine + paper clips….oh, well, and a little cash too 😉 Paint your design – I chose to paint rain drops, pretty easy. When it is dry, attach some strings to a few paper clips, then to the umbrella. Try to keep the strings on the shorter side, less chance they will get tangled. Close your umbrella, attach a sweet little note… voila!

PS: Have you entered our Curio Road giveaway yet?! If not, hurry hurry, today’s the last day to enter!

Hope you’re having a great week so far, friends . It’s been a bit hectic around here trying to get ready for ALT Summit can’t believe I’m leaving tomorrow! Today I wanted to share this gorgeous home with you all. I ‘m usually into homes with loads of bright colors, but I’m completely falling for the soft tones of the home of German designer Emma Persson. It’s so calming and relaxing, and today it’s exactly what I need amidst the chaos of packing. My favorite thing about this house has got to be the mint green cabinets , they make the entire kitchen feel so fresh. And say what, white wooden floors throughout the house? I’m moving in.

What do you think – do you guys like homes bathed in neutral tones like this one?

And since you’re here, may I invite you to sit around this pretty wooden table for a pistachio & white chocolate cupcake? My mouth is watering as I am typing these words! You can find the cupcake recipe here on Fresh.

A little girl I know turned three last weekend.

Tradition called for a little crown, a birthday poster & little pretties hanging in the air that brought a big smile on my little girl’s face. She asked me for a strawberry cake in the midst of January….my grandmother would have rolled her eyes at that. But really, who am I to argue seasons with a three year old?! Plus, a birthday girl always gets to call the shots on her day. Anyway, I found this pretty little strawberry cream cake on The Moveable Feasts, and let me tell you, there wasn’t even any crumbs left. It was DE.LI.SH.I.OUS!

Happy birthday, little Olive of our dreams. Love you to the moon and back.

…at least I wish this was true. But baby it’s been cold outside! I am heading out of town for four days A.L.O.N.E this week to attend ALT summit, and I’m excited. So excited in fact that I’ve already started to pack. If you know me a little, you know it’s a miracle in itself. In any case, it seems like it’s going to be cold there too, so today I’m aiming at bringing us all a little spring in the midst of this cold winter. I noticed this gorgeous room all over Pinterest last week – no wonder why, isn’t it gorgeous? Spring colors toned down by a bit of grey & copper – Monday …I’m in love!

Wishing you all a great week!

I don’t know about you, but I want oh-so-badly to take a little break from the winter months, drop every priority and just book a last minute trip to the first sunny deal that I find. Escape and go explore a random place. And when I am there, drop my map (and my iphone) and let my feet guide me. Oh I’ll get lost, maybe, probably, but don’t the best travel stories often come from the unexpected, after that wrong turn we took? I am craving spontaneity & randomness. What about you, are you craving that too?

1. Love the contrast of paint over wood in this pretty “let’s get lost” poster by Oh Dier.
2. This litte piece of gorgeousness isn’t exactly made for traveling anymore, but I’d love to have this in my home – it would instantly make me dream about far-away destinations. Retro suitcase at Anna Lou Vintage.
3. One of my new favorite travel essentials, hair powder! You can skip showers and still have beautiful hair. Alder hair powder at Anthropologie.
4. Too cute and so practical! This inflatable cat travel pillow by Naomi.
5. Yes for documents traveling in style! Love the color of his lime green document holder at Flight 001.
6. Keep track of you whereabouts in the fun travel journal by Making This Home. Perfectly made to help you remember every little thing!
