I enjoy Scandinavian design so much and very often find links to people and places that immediately put me in my happy zone. These images are so transporting, this bedroom is gorgeous. Everything you see here was styled by Stockholm talent Eva Lindh.
Norwegian blogger Anettes Hus talked about Eva, that is how I found her, and my eyes are enjoying the deliciousness on my screen at this moment — Eva’s commercial, interior and fashion work. Blown away!

Are you looking for a no sew project that you can complete quickly using scraps of leftover fabric? Try making fabric fortune cookies! I realize that this is completely random but after seeing a tutorial for these on a German blog, Frau Liebe, I had to google the idea to see if I could find English instructions. This photo below is a completed cookie by blogger Brassy Apple, her tutorial is linked below. Darling!
This is a fun project to do when you are in need of something quick, but if you have more time you can certainly stitch them closed versus using glue and bonding tape. Below you can find links to cookies you can sew and the no-sew version. There is also a link to making fabric Glückskekse in German. Imagine making red and pink cookies with little love notes inside?
English – sew (via Brassy Apply)
English – no sew (via Michael’s)

I’m smitten by the illustrative work of Keiko Morimoto today. Born in Japan, raised in England, and currently living and working in Lausanne, Switzerland with her husband Christophe, Keiko’s work is alive with imagination and color.
In addition to her illustrations she creates paper mache dolls as a hobby that are a delight to behold. Keiko has worked with clients worldwide but sadly for us I’m not finding any of her illustrations or dolls available for purchase online. Oh well, they are still so inspirational to look at!
Thanks for the tip, Julia!

Today I wrote about photographer Yvette Inufio at Real Simple and I have a feeling that you’ll really enjoy her work… See?
What a beautiful image to begin the day. This photo reminds me of my grandparents farm in the Spring — freshly dug earth, a vintage floral tablecloth, homemade iced tea sipped from a canning jar, a white cotton blouse with swiss dots, the smell of blossoming field flowers…
