Another monday, a new week that started with the nicest late summer weather.
Already in the morning, I switched rooms, from my studio to a sunny spot in the garden, where I sat until now, stuffed limbs, typed emails and made doll heads.Today we even picked the first grapes of the season that grow behind our house - within an arm's length actually. The vine tendrils are happily framing one of my studio windows, I just have to open it to pick grapes for a quick snack while working, isn't that convenient?
Yesterday on a fleamarket near Stockamöllan, I found this vintage play stove, made in GDR. When I was eight years old, I once visited a girl that had exactly the same little stove. We miserably failed trying to make pancakes in her room (the stove works with with hexamine fuel tablets) and turned everything in a total mess while our parents were chatting over coffee and cake, and the afternoon ended in a lot of ranting and quite a few tears. I am not sure that they ever could get those small play kitchen pans clean again. Funnily, I had totally forgotten about that incident until yesterday, when I found the little stove under a pile of fabrics ;-)
The week will be a busy one, but tonight's highlight will be the choir practice that has started again after a long summer break. I am very much looking forward to meet everyone again, and to spend the evening singing...
From a late-summery Skåne I am sending you a warm breeze, hoping your week has started smoothly and with sunshine,
