On My Mind: Holiday Decorating the Swedish Way.

On a recent trip to Stockholm, Sweden, I spotted some early Holiday decorations, even though there were still a few days of November left. And as usual, the Swedes managed to make it interesting while keeping it simple.

Friday Flowers: Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder.

My seven year old son, Cal, came home the other day with a big grin on his face and this lovely bouquet of flowers in his hand. He had picked them on a school trip to the park, and he was very proud. We placed the blooms on a small table in our kitchen, so we all could see and enjoy them.

Friday Flowers: Pink and Blue, of Course

Here they are, the pink camelias, together with blue and yellow, and I can’t help but think “Spring!” It’s hard to believe the Christmas tree was still in the house only three weeks ago. Happy Friday, peoples!   Photo: Charlotte Coffey  

Friday Flowers: Marble and Friends

This sunny Friday calls for a crisp and clean bouquet on the marble ledge. The ceramic trinket box is from Design House Stockholm and the marble bowl/cup I brought home from Greece when I was in my early twenties. Wishing you all a great weekend, hoping that this early summer weather will stay until Monday!   Photo: Charlotte Coffey
