we had such a nice weekend! jeremy played piano at a friend's wedding and i tagged along (so happy to have a break from my normal work here and spend some time journaling & making embroidery projects). we had a few hours free on saturday morning and he took me to Lindsborg (also called Little Sweden) where he grew up! it was so charming and i had a chance to see the houses where he lived and his childhood school, church ect… it was fun!


this craft store was really cute. lots of wooden toys….




and some pretty painted dala horses. 🙂


a little road trip every once in a while is nice. i have quite a few creative projects that i can't wait to share with you this week…. some new home decor projects, a collaboration that i am so excited about and (ohmygoodness!) i've been scrapbooking…. 😀

hope you had a cheerful weekend. i am making mr. larson some pumpkin spice chai and settling in for a quiet evening of printmaking with brittany.
loves, elsie

  • Sounds like a fun weekend. Love the photos, such a cute and charming little town. Love the photo of you and Mr. Larson. You make such a cute couple. Can’t wait to take time to go and read the interview.

  • fun. It can really help to expand the view of a person when seeing their homeplaces. my husband and I visited one of the states where I grew up and did the same kind of touring. opens up a new dimension of the person.

  • Elsie you are such an inspiration!

    I had a nice weekend trip away from home too!

    And um, can Jeremy play at my wedding…one day…if I ever decide to get married…?

  • 日本電機工業会(JEMA)が26日発表した白物家電の2月の国内出荷額は前年同月比3.7%増の1573億円で、昨年6月以来のプラスとなった。冷蔵庫が16.0%増の251億円、洗濯機が14.3%増の237億円と大きく伸び、エアコンも0.5%増の403億円と堅調だった。東日本大震災後の節電意識の高まりを追い風に、省エネ性能の優れた製品への買い替えが進んだ。昨年7月以降は記録的な猛暑と家電エコポイント制度の特需の反動で前年割れが続いたが、2011年4~9月期は15年ぶりの高水準を維持している。
