It is Spriiiiiiiiiiiiiiing ... Yeiiiiiiii.....

Dear Blog Friends... I hope that you all have had a fantastic week ! Here in Stockholm Spring is finally here and it always comes with so much warm welcoming from all ... Instagram feeds are filled with beautiful pictures of flowers finding their way up from a winterlong sleep  and everyone shares how wonderful it is to just walk in the sun and take in the fresh spring air , some have taken their first cup of coffee sitting outside taking in all that spring has to offer... For me it has been a very , very busy week finishing some spring knits and dresses ... Here a picture from the latest handknitted big sweater that decorates my window display this week...
 
A biggie sweater handknitted in french wool from an amazing yarn store here in Stockholm that unfortunately is closing... But the owner will continue selling her wonderful yarns in her home so that is a very big comfort for me as I am a big fan of yarns from France . They stand for high quality and that is want I want to offer my customers in everything I create...The closing of small wonderful shops has unfortunately become a more and more frequent phenomenon as internet shopping is taking over... The thought of closing my shop has never come to my mind as it has from the beginning been more than a shop for me , it is also a place where people can meet over a glass of wine or a coffee and it  is so wonderful to see how many of my friends have found new friends here in my little boutique...Makes me a little proud to be ablel to enlarge persons aqcuaintenses by letting them meet here... It is a lot of work having a shop , I am very aware of it , it is almost like a second home but it gives me so much hapiness back so all the effort is really worth it...
 
My home got new fresh flowers...Inside and yeees outside...
 
12 terracotta pots that I always decorate with season flowers have lovely daffodils in new fresh soil now ... I hope they will stand the cold temperatures that we still have at night...Time will tell...
At home the pelargons have decided that this was the week to start blooming and I could not be more pleased!
 
Tiny tiny flowers in red and light pink are reaching out for the light... so , so wonderful.....
 
The mini daffodils I planted som days ago inside in small lovely pots are also reminding us that spring is here...
 
 
And this week I chose soft pink tulips for my favourite vase ...
 
As weeks go by more and more flowers will take place in my home and studio , for me it is a must , something I could not be without!!
Last week I wrote that I was sewing a tiny , tiny dress for a special person and here is the result...A mini wrap dress...
 
This is definitely something I will continue to do , and add to my design . The response to this dress has been amazing from everyone. Thank you so much!!
My window display goes mainly in shades of dark blue... I wanted this darker color before the explosion of color I will add next week when I decorate it for Easter... Everything is ready for easter and I hope that you will like it! 
Here a picture from the outside...
 
New knits and new wrapdresses...
And a look from the inside...
 
Finally Dear friends some wonderful pictures of my lovely faithful customers this last friday in my shop...
 
 
 
I never get tired of telling my customers that they are all a big part of my inspiration and that my work would be nothing without all their inconditional love!! 
I wish you all a very happy week and stay tuned for some easter reading next sunday...
