April moments

Time to sum up what this month brought us, right? : )

I love Springtime, and this April has been a special, exciting month for me.
We had a lot of friends visiting, I had the opportunity to try new things and experiences, and also concerning my artisan stuff I got brave and started using new techniques and supplies. 
The last weeks were in general very intense, and finally our Swedish course started too!

Would you like to follow me through the funniest moments of the month?
Here's what happened in our little town! : )

 Beautiful sunny days (in good company!)

 ..and beautiful sunsets too!

 A joyful mood..

..healthy snacks.. 

..and (a bit less healthy) first bbq in the garden (these pics were taken at the beginning od April, dinner time.. daytime is soooo long now!)

Much love and cuddles..

..a house full of flowers..

..mini cakes for a Sunday afternoon with friends..

..and (even if I know it sounds like a stereotype from a fashion blog) delicious macarons that my boyfriend brought back from his trip to France! : )

There have been colourful outfits..

..and also basic ones to feel comfortable at home,

there have been yummy picnics on the balcony..

..and in the park as well! : )

A dinner on the top of the highest Scandinavian building..

and my first attempt at indoor bouldering!
Such a funny experience! : )

My boyfriend -who recently has been watching quite a lot of MasterChef episodes - cooked for me the most delicious food..

..such as scallops with apple salad..

..or pork chops with caramelized onions and peppers! : )

(oh, and I also learnt how to serve a proper salmon tartare!)

We enjoyed many walks downtown, bought the most scrumptious raspberry&chocolate sauce from a local market, and paired with hazelnuts&cocoa Italian cookies (aka "Cantuccini")..

..and we welcomed the ladybugs that are back in our garden! : )

Hope you enjoyed the pics!
Ps: today in Sweden it's Valborg (or Walspurgis Night), a traditional festival that celebrates springtime with bonfires and parades. Will I be brave enough to go out in the evening to see the fires roaring on top of the hills? : )

Neon & golden preview : )

Hello everyone! : )

With three friends staying at our place for the weekend, thre's not so much time left for anything else. Which is sort of problematic, since my commissions list is getting longer and longer. The final result? Staying up till 2 a.m. every night, at least to keep up with customer emails and requests. 
A bit tiring, but in the end absolutely worth it! : )

Just a quick post then to offer a sneak preview of my latest Munny creation, a mini (4 inch) vinyl spirit that I like to call "The Mushroom Munny"! :D

More pics coming soon, I promise!
And in the meanwhile, I wish you all a nice Sunday!
It is a lovely sunny day here in Sweden, so we're off for a picnic today! : )

Turning Torso

Last week I had the amazing and unexpected opportunity to join a dinner at Turning Torso in Malmö.

Turning Torso is the tallest Scandinavian skyscraper, and it holds the highest apartments in Europe!
I first saw it last November, but I never had the chance to enter it, because it is a mainly residential building and therefore not open to the public. 
And that explains how excited I was when I joined a dinner event on the very top of the skyscraper! : )

It takes less than 40 seconds by elevator to reach Turning Torso's 54th floor, and the view from over there is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed a wonderful sunset, along with a delicious dinner and good wine. Such a lovely night! : )

Hope you'll like the pics, and wish you a great weekend!
