Yes, Stockholm truly is a beautiful city from any angle.
I didn't really go to see the sights this time, no I've done all that before.
This time I went to meet friends old and new, one of whom seemed to be waiting for me in every corner of the city. Ingela and I had arranged to go to the Moderna Museet together to see the Picasso vs Duchamp exhibition. Believe it or not, once we were there, even the paper cups had been decorated by Ingela, along with several of the products in the museum's design shop! We had to laugh!
Thanks to Karin, I had the opportunity to experience life in Sodermalm for a few days. One of her friends kindly lent me her very lovely flat, complete with early morning sunshine and a well-stocked fridge!
Karin and I had brunch at Urban Deli, close to Parlans, Kiki, and the Talent Gallery (don't miss Fideli Sundqvist's exhibition!), to name but a few. She's great fun and I love her taste. If you can get to Manos, Karin currently has a small selection of spun and handwoven textiles by Japanese designer Erika Ueno on display. Everything is so beautiful.
I treated myself to one of Camilla Engman's prints, which goes perfectly with this cushion by Fine Little Day.
Oh my, Elisabeth Dunker! I was absolutely delighted to start my weekend wining & dining with this fine lady at the Scandic Grand Central Hotel, where she was staying. We had a fun, memorable evening, and I can't help but smile now when I look across at the pillow on our sofa.
The online world is rich, inspiring and demanding.
I have been blogging for three years now, posting three or four times a day sometimes. I am passionate about K&C and love sharing and communicating with my readers. But I have to say that it was refreshing to pull the plug and take stock for a short while, hence the lack of posts.
It wasn't really a break though. I was taking things to another level, moving from virtual to real, I like that.
As for Stockholm, well, I'll be back, I have three new friends to go and visit!
