I am very lucky in that my boyfriend Max has family over in Sweden so every summer we get to go over and visit them for two weeks. I bought a few things in some of my favourite shops over there this year and thought I’d share them with you lovely people.
Firstly, we went to Fine Little Day which is a quirky little homeware, clothing & gift store in Lindome. Max and I got some cushion covers in readiness for moving into our new home and I picked up some postcards and a card set because I’m a pretty huge fan of their illustrations. I was also eyeing up a rug that had the same cooker print as the postcard above, definitely dream home kind of stuff.
Next up we got some tea towels from Hemtex, again for the new house, in an effort to get rid of all our old, unwanted tea towels and start afresh with nice ones.
Now, one of my favourite Swedish shops that I look forward to visiting every year is Indiska. They seem pretty keen on helping the planet and their stuff is “designed in Sweden for people who love India”. They usually have some nice clothes and homeware in there. This year I got another travel mug (it’s ok to own 3, right? Just in case…) and Max got himself a really nice bowl. The mug above is from Lagerhaus, another really nice homewaresy kind of shop.
Also from Indiska, I got this dress which I really like and is nice and summery, only problem being we got back to England and it was so dark and gloomy and raining and hasn’t really been sunny since June. Ah well.
At the airport on the way home Max picked up a copy of Rum Hemma which has gotten us really excited about our new house and furnishing it with nice things.
By the way, this new house I keep talking about has not actually been found yet… we’ve applied for a beautiful one in the rural Welsh countryside but we’re currently waiting on a phonecall letting us know if it’s ours or not. It’s getting pretty tense.
Thanks for reading! Laterz.
