This year's first bouquet of peonies

I bought my first bouquet of Sarah Bernhardt peonies a couple of days ago. I’m always very excited to see them pop up during end of spring at various flower markets and flower shops around town.

I've loved peonies since I was a child and I still remember watching the beautiful and splendid ones that grew wild in my grandmothers blossoming garden. They are without a doubt my favourite kind of flower together with big light yellow roses and persian buttercups. Somehow I also find that the scent of them - especially the Sarah Bernhardt ones, nowdays reminds me of spending summer days at my grandmother’s house, making pancakes for lunch, sitting out on her porch - drinking coffee under a parasol with flower prints and picking currants and raspberrys in her garden.

I guess I can't seem to get enough of flowers, especially when they bring back these lovely memories from the past.

I really miss my grandmother today. This post is dedicated to her.

Behind the scenes: A shoot in the woods

Model: Malin Kjeldsen
Photography by Up The Wooden Hills

About two weeks ago I was out in the woods with Henrik and Joni, doing a shoot for a little project & collaboration we are currently working on. This blurry picture is the first sneak peak behind the scenes of it. It was a beautiful sunny day when we shot on location and we were also very excited to work with Malin, another friend of mine and a lovely lady who agreed to model for the shoot.

During these last two weeks the project has been edited and at the moment we are about to finish the last details. I can't wait to tell you more about it and show you the finished product as well as some more pictures behind the scenes very soon.

Happy Friday to all of you!

Oh, my! What's happening to all of these days, they just seem to fly by and I've been busy sitting by the sewing machine a lot :) I got a bit of a shock yesterday when I took a walk and realised it was suddenly summer weather in Sweden, already!

Some interesting things are happening this week. A very inspiring person is going to visit me here in my home and studio, I will reveal who she is in a few days.

I've also started working on a little project that is a collaboration with a small production company run by some friends of mine. Stay tuned for updates :)
