The recycled card display alone and closer.

Here’s a card display that I’ve made out of a discarded café table and chair, topped with glass from the architectural rescue shop. I love the matured colour of the wood and I think it’s a real nice backdrop to the cards.

Bigger drops.

What sweet days we’ve had! Friday was private view for re-used at manos, Elisabeth, Camilla and I started the day with breakfast under the cherry blossoms at a café on Hornsgatan. The day just went by in a whirlwind and the private view was lovely! Here are a few pics. For dinner we went to Nuh’s at Hornsgatan – it’s a very long street ;).

Saturday was spent strolling around town popping into shops like Karaktär,Mor KarinKonst-igretrobric-a-brac….and then Camilla and Elisabeth took the train back to Gothenburg.

And now I’m working on the update of the webshop with the superb Studio Violet porcelain table ware. If you want to know when it’s up – send an email to or check back here.

Janine has got wonderful images of the re-used show, manos and Scandinavia on flickr!

Yellow, bigger here.

Circus Violet is rolling in to manos by the end of this week. I invited Camillaand Elisabet to pattern old china for the re-use exhibition that opens at manos on Saturday (private view Friday 3-6 pm – welcome!). They’ve made a whole circus! I don’t know if it is because it’s May 1st on Friday and parade time but now I see them in my mind parading up Överjärva Gårdsväg and in through the door at manos with drums and fanfares and the china dancing around them. Can you see it too?!

A wood burning stove is the latest addition to manos, it moved in just a couple of days ago and I’m in love. I’m out chopping wood for it, I listen to it burning away, I feed it and admire it. I could place myself permanently in front of it and be quite content. (Until my stomach starts rumbling.)

Nicole did a very festive and lovely window display, the charming flower arrangements are by Batoul at flowersflow and the new sign is so great.


I’ve added some more gold star pebbles to the shop as well as some of the rosehip treasures above that Nicole did the other day.
