My Window Display <3...

Dear Blog Friends <3 
 
Today It was time to drive in to the City and create a New Window Display after a week of Valentines celebration. This is one of the things that I love to do and, the response to my window decorations are really amazing ... I love to hear from people that are not my customers but that love to see something New every week in my Display ... 
Not so long ago a gentleman came by and said that he always takes a short cut to his home on Strandvagen just to look into my window display... It made my day to hear that :-) LOVE <3
 
 
To spread hapiness and to inspire others with their lifes is one of the big purposes of my work ... That is why this work is so hard to quit ... I have had the thougth in my mind so many times , that maybe I could go on just working from my home.... But all the wonderful meetings with my customers and friends gives me so much joy and love that it makes this almost impossible to leave...
 
 
I have an old painteasel that I like to put in the Display when I want to inform of something New that is going on ... The paintings are made by me and this one announcing that a New Collection is coming soon has been the official painting for 5 years... Yes, this 21st of April I am celebrating 5 years since I opened the first time...I hope that this day will be a day with cake and champange :-) ...and balloons...hehe...
 
 
Flowers...can not have too many of those... ever!!
 
 
Here is my little painting ...
 
The End for Now <3

Happy All Hearts Day <3

Happy All Hearts Day Dear Blog Friends <3 I like it the way we salute everyone on Saint Valentines in Sweden ... All Hearts Day !!! Yes because this is not a day that only people who are in Love can celebrate , it is everyone's day today and all people deserve to be cared for ... not only today by the way.... So from me to you; all the Love on this special day to everyone :-)
 
As I wrote a few days ago I enjoy very much to create New special outfits for every time of the year... Valentines is one of those occasions where I let my creativity bloom out in all kinds of Red and Pink fabrics and yarns.
And here is the result of this years <3 I hope that you will like It as much as I do....
 
 
My model and sister Maureen is wearing  a little mohair cardigan in soft pink and chili red ... I Love the combination of these two colours... To match it, a little denim A-line skirt with a "tiny roses" print from this Spring Collection... 
 
 My Shop at Grevgatan 48 is also dressed in a Valentines theme... Wishing everyone that walks by a happy day...
During this time of the year my store is only open by appointment and I enjoy my work from home........ My home is the place on earth where I love to be and where I get most of the inspiration I need for my work...
 
Once again ! Happy All Hearts Day to All of you <3
