I managed to get home just before the storm – thick hails knocked on the windows and the rain was pouring down. Phew.

Thank you for ordering so many of our “dreams”, we are delighted you like them! Most orders will be sent out in a couple of weeks time, when the show is over but the web only items are already on their way. I’ve wrapped them using bits of pages out of a book I was reading when I was last in Gothenburg, visiting Camilla. It was Evan Hunter’s “Mothers and daughters” and it was a really old copy, totally falling apart. I thought it looked nice like this.

Pink Dream no 38 Bigger here.

I’ve added a few more web only items, as well as a lovely pink piece – thick, creamy pink with a chocolate coloured dream on top.

I’m working every day at the moment, sending parcels here there and everywhere. I’m going to put my feet up for two weeks over Christmas and New Years but until then it is full speed ahead. Thank you for your orders and for your patience with getting replies to emails ;)

Packaging with a stick, but not any old stick – it’s from the apple trees on the golf course. Överjärva Gård used to have apple orchards there and when the golf course was built a few trees of different species were saved. I only pick up the branches that has fallen off and use them for my packaging. It’s something to do with tying yesterday – today – tomorrow…
