Sweet Sundays...

Dear Blog Friends! I have chosen to call these days of writing for "Sweet Sundays" as it has become one of my favorite days of the week...  A day of reflection of last weeks events and work but also the day when I get to write some words about these last days of work in my studio and in my little boutique in the city... It is almost like therapy and the name Sweet Sunday is perfect for describing the feeling...
It has been a really intense week as I am working on all the details of this Spring Collection that I hope to have ready at the end of April... I am already beginning to add some new garments in the shop so that my faithful customers always have something new to see when they visit ...
The window dispaly is beginning to have some details of Spring to come , adding more colours and flowers...
 
I chose yelllow as the main colour this week as we soon are entering the week of easter . Yellow in all shades is a very easter colour and a big trendy colour this spring... For me it is not a new colour that I am adding this spring to my collection as I always have a lot of colour in the things I create , especially in spring and summertime.Yellow has always been a colour that is part of creating spring for me...
 
So when the window display is ready and all my new ceramics are out of the oven and in place, it is time to open the shop... Fridays and saturdays during this mid-season time...From 13-18 h on fridays and from 12-15 h on saturdays.
 
Some new small pots were ready this week  , blue and white , always so right... I call this design , "blue so true" ceramic collection... I think that I came up with a good name for these beauties that I am so proud of...
 
I went to the city on friday  with this Springs coat production , happy with the result and now there are only 4 left... Made one for myself to , in yellow of course .... 
 
The coats are produced and made in Sweden, as is everything I create and there is no massproduction of anything I do, but if someone wants something in another colour I always try to do my best to fullfill my truthful customers wishes.. I have been blessed with working hands that can sew and knit so this is fortunately no problem for me and when I have the company of my other half in my studio everything is so much easier to work with for me...LOVE...
 
When all lanterns are lit up and the small chairs and a little table is out on the street as a part of the decoration of the shop it is time to open for the day and amazingly there is always someone who finds it cozy to sit down on one of the chairs as I told you last week... This week it was a little boy that had very tired legs and he and his lovely mom was for a moment a part of my shops outside decoration... Thank you to all that love to sit outside my shop and rest for a while... I feel very happy everytime I look out and there is someone there sitting...
 
 
I am so happy that fridays and saturdays have become exactly what I wanted it to be in my little shop and studio. A place to meet , be creative , shopping and so much more , we talk and enjoy to be together and the best of all is that I know that many people have found new friends here... That is exactly what I wanted when the idea of opening my own shop came to my mind 6 years ago... By the way this 28 of April is my shops Birthday... Incredible 6 years have passed and it seems like yesterday... Thankful for all these years , so thankful...
 
Finally Dear blog friends as always here are some pictures of this weeks fresh flowers in our home... They give so much harmony , inspiration and joy to life and of course they are all tulips grown in Sweden...
 
 
And last but not least some pictures of happy creative women and shoppers in my little boutique this week...
 
I wish you all a happy week with happy moments at work and in your home...
